Last week I had the opportunity to participate in the Holi Festival of Colors for the first time, and it was awesome. When I heard about this event, I found it so interesting and fun! Holi is an Hindu spring festival, celebrated in India and Nepal. It is a joyful day in which people celebrate the beginning of Spring.
So I wished that the day we celebrated Holi at Fontbonne would have been sunny, but as we know Saint Louis weather can change at anytime, that day we had snow. Hopefully the event was not cancelled. A group of 20 students approximately came, we enjoy some delicious Hindu desserts, and then everyone picked two colors. We all went outside and after the count of three, we all throw the colors to the sky and to each other saying “Happy Holi”. Not even a minute and I was already full of different colors, my hair, my face, and the white tshirt I had were a rainbow. It was so cool! I couldn’t believe I was all colored. Sadly, I couldn’t stay the whole time because I had a class, but everyone stay celebrating Holi for more than half an hour. It was a experience I will never forget, I really enjoy it!
Here I post some colored pics!
Finally! Spring Break! Is it just me or was Spring Break very much needed? It feels like Winter Break was forever ago, but that is not the point of this post. What am I going to be doing? Well, I will be decompressing for a day and then it’s time to get to work. I will be working on and improving my projects that I am currently working on. I have some new ideas currently cooking and I am in the process of drawing out blueprints, prototypes, etc. For what exactly? I am not going to disclose that information. Who knows, you may see & use it in the future! Time will tell. Until next time guys, stay classy!
Are you as excited as I am about spring break? Honestly for me, this semester has been quite stressful and really busy. I’ve not been able to spend time doing anything other than work, class, homework, or (a little bit) of sleep, and quite frankly, that’s not good for my physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual health. So for me, spring break is going to be a small opportunity for much-needed decompression and “me time”. I say small because I’m going to spend a large chunk of break working on a presentation, four or five papers, regular reading/homework for several of my classes, and discussion boards/quizzes/a test for my eight-week online class that just started. I remain hopeful that there will be a few spare moments, though, to get well-rested, spend a little quality time with my family and friends, and maybe even catch up on pleasure reading or go see Beauty and the Beast. I’m sure many of you have a much more exciting, enjoyable break planned, but I am grateful for the week off if for no other reason than to catch up on many, many things! I’m not sure I’d be able to feasibly get through the rest of the semester if I didn’t have spring break on the horizon!
In the meantime, I’m about halfway through the week…or a test, three labs, a presentation, and four regular class periods away from “freedom”! I’m enjoying the cold weather and snow, though. See my picture below of my Monday drive to Fontbonne…the snow is so pretty.
Happy spring break — stay safe and enjoy your time off!
Spring break is finally upon us. I wanted to share my plans for this upcoming week off from classes.
Unfortunately I will still be working on spring break, but I will get to switch it up to some day shifts instead of my usual night shifts. I plan to sleep in as much as I can and use as few alarms as possible. I am hoping the weather clears up and I will be to go hiking or take in a trip to the zoo. Although we have a week off from class, I will still be on campus Wednesday night for my 8 week night class. I plan to start working on my final projects so they don’t all pile up on me the last weeks of school. Crazy to think we will only have a few weeks before finals when we come back from spring break!!
Have fun this spring break Fontbonne and be safe!
