I had a blast this weekend, traveling to the city in celebration of my girlfriends 21st birthday! There was a lot going on over the weekend, on and off campus.. STL housed a weekend called STL Uncorked, a fun and exciting concert full of entertainment, drinks, food, and the surrounding community!
Personally, I have officially decided to pursue my dream of becoming a Chiropractor.. I’ve given in a ton of thought over the last 4 years but I feel like it has been a dream of mine for a reason! I enjoy helping people, understanding them, making them better physically and psychologically, as well as letting them know that I am always around to help their family and friends. I hope to graduate in the Fall of 2018 with a bright future ahead of me and clear idea of exactly where I want to go with my practice to be as successful as possible. I first had the idea of becoming a Chiropractor in the 8th grade when I broke my tailbone. Long story short, I didn’t heal correctly and chiropractics worked wonders on getting me back to equilibrium!
This week has been a long week because I have the dreaded summer cold. Luckily it hasn’t stopped me from doing much, but it has made things less than pleasant for the start of my week. Last night my friends from the dietetics program and I got together for a much needed girl’s night. It felt like forever since I’d seen them. Four of them graduated this Spring and are off to internships at the end of this summer/early fall. I’m so happy for them and proud of their accomplishments! I hope to have good luck in my search for internships in the Spring of next year. Despite graduating in December, I decided to wait until Spring match for internships because most internships match in the Spring. I’m looking into Eastern Illinois University’s internship and hoping to get a tour of campus and talk to the internship director sometime this summer. In addition, another thing I’d like to get done over summer is the GRE. I would like to get a master’s degree in a nutrition-related field someday, so I figure if an internship also has a master’s degree program attached, all the better.
Wish me luck on getting past this cold and getting some relaxation on my day off today!
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. -Katie

Please enjoy this hot, humid, muggy summer. We had such a horrible, cold, icy, snowy winter.
Living in St. Louis we hardly get a spring or fall. Maybe one or two days, but that is it!
Stay hydrated!!!! Me and H2O have become such great friends I can’t believe I ever neglected it!!!
Finals week can be a struggle to get through, but Fontbonne’s library is trying to make that week a little bit better. On Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday, and Monday nights, the library will be open until midnight instead of closing at its usual 11 p.m. time. This means that students can spend extra time doing some late night studying which is definitely needed!
There are tons of great study spots in the library, like the small desks that can be found on the second floor. My favorite study spot in the library is the individual study rooms. I found that when I use one of those rooms, that I’m able to get a lot of studying done.
Lastly, all throughout finals week, the library will put out some late night snacks. There’s some delicious coffee, yummy granola bars, and many other treats for students!
So stop by the library during finals week and grab a quick snack to get you through those finals! Good luck!
