Summer classes started at Fontbonne this week. It has been a little rough, since all I want to do is sleep. I have a practicum in the Advancement office working on PR and advertising for SAA. Which I love; I am having so much fun with it. The downer is my Tuesday/Thursday class. 8am-10:30am spreadsheets aka excel. How boring is that, so early in the morning. It will be an easy A so that’s okay.
Also, during the summer I am continuing to work for the Griffin Roar aka the Fontbanner. I really enjoy it since I like to write. If anyone is interested in writing for it email me with questions: email@example.com. I can give you information if you would like to write for the summer and/or if you would like to sign up for the class in the fall. We always need writers. The more content we have, the better!
This summer I am taking a two week class at Fontbonne that is worth three credit hours. I like it because its worth a lot of hours in a short period of time. Even though the class is four hours long, we get breaks in between. It isn’t as bad as I thought it would be and sometimes we can get out early. It sucks that I don’t have a car though because when we get out early, I just have to sit somewhere and wait until it’s time for me to go to work. However I would recommend taking a two-week class but I do warn you — coming on time is crucial. In a two week class, skipping class is not an option.
I’ve been thinking about what to say in my final Fontbonne blog for some time now. I’ve been trying to think of witty comments or good advice to give to current and incoming students. But, for the first time, I think I’ll just make it short and sweet.
These past four years have definitely been an adventure. I’ve cried and laughed. I’ve felt like I was on top of the world and stuck under a bunch of rocks. I’ve experienced triumphs and tribulations. The best advice I can offer to students at this point is to keep doing what you’re doing no matter what anyone else thinks. Go with what your heart tells you, even if everyone seems to be against you. You and only you know what’s best for you, even if others laugh and think you’re crazy.
So where will I go after graduation? Well, I’ll be working all summer, and then I’ll start my graduate education at Saint Louis University in the Core Biomedical Sciences Program offered through the School of Medicine. My goal is to join one of the many Molecular Microbiology and Immunology research labs because microbiology is, without a doubt, my biggest life passion.
Thanks for reading my blogs over these past four years and for following me on my life journey.
