Fall is the sign that winter is coming and summer has gone. It is a time for change. But that is not what this post is about; it is about my favorite fall activities. There are a lot of things to pick from, but for me, there are only a few great things about fall. I have my top five things I like about fall:

5) Number five is the weather. It isn’t too hot or too cold, it just stays in between. The windows can be left open for most days and nights. It saves some money when to comes to the a/c and heat bills.

4) Coming in at number four is Ohio State football. The Buckeyes return and play amazing games. Their seasons are always great to watch, even if they don’t win it is a great game.

3-1) Numbers three through one are too close to call. Bonfires heat up at number three. It is so much fun to sit back and have some soda around a fire. I enjoy talking face to face with my friends instead of texting them. There are s’mores and jokes that are shared throughout the night.

Number two is………the releasing of video games. A lot of games come out around this time of year, or as I like to call it: the era of Tim being broke. HaHa. It was great to see them in the summer, but playing them is even better.

Number one is The Walking Dead. The new seasons kick off, giving us the return of characters that we love. I love seeing where the characters end up, and how they deal with the problems or people that come along. There are parts that are used from the graphic novels, but are still made differently.

Why Fontbonne

by Tim on October 20, 2014

in Campus Community,College Life

Fontbonne was my only choice. I was going to have a back-up school but then I was accepted here. I love the small class sizes along with the attention I receive from teachers. Also the fact that all of the buildings are so close together makes it easy to get to each of them in the winter. I wanted to have the experience of living on campus and away from my folks, and I just wanted to do something different.

In ten years, I will be 34 with a bachelor’s degree in Professional Writing. To me, the future is a scary thought because I have no clue what I want to do. Maybe some sort of writing writing or editing. Fontbonne has already helped me open a few doors to some careers. I am going to meet with a company to discuss an internship for the spring.

But let us look at what I see for me. I want to have a beagle after graduation. I plan on owning my own land in the country with a wife and a kid or two. This just depends on the path I go down. It may end up with me still living in Missouri or not. I want to somehow help people with my degree.

My Room on Campus

by Tim on October 1, 2014

in College Life

Every dorm room is almost the same size here at Fontbonne. My room is a double, but I paid for a single which means it is just me. My door has my own style of just random or funny pictures. I have some Walking Dead and pro wrestling pictures on there. I have a carpet I bought to help it make it feel more like home. The walls have photos and posters posted on them. One of the most important things is my Ohio State Buckeyes Flag hanging on the way too. I use one of the desks to hold my T.V., VCR, and video game systems. I have a nightstand that has two containers as the bottom and one more as a place to hold the rest of my stuff.

Dueling Pianos

by Tim September 17, 2014

I have heard great things about the Dueling Pianos event from other students. I had never been to any event like this kind, but I had the night free to attend. DSAC had an inviting feeling, the lights were off except a few on the stage, chairs and tables faced the stage, and of course […]

Just Now Realizing this….

by Tim February 24, 2014

Life is tough for people, like me, who are left handed. Growing up, all the desks I sat in were right handed. I did get lucky and had a left handed desk every now and then. When I started community college, my mind was set on tables not desks being used. Guess what I saw….desks. […]
