Last Wednesday I got to go to Wild Country for the second time this semester! For those of you who don’t know what Wild Country is, it’s this dance club that plays a  bunch of country music and everyone line dances to it. It’s so much fun, even if you’re a first timer. The first […]

The Seaweed is Always Greener

by Marielle April 28, 2014

One of the things I like best about Fontbonne, and I’m sure I’ve said this many times before, is how easy it is to get involved in things.  And not just get involved, but dominate.  Perhaps this sounds negative, but I’ve always felt that Fontbonne provides a perfect “big fish in a little pond” atmosphere, […]

The Record Shows, I Took the Blows

by Marielle April 23, 2014

There are some questions for which, no matter how random, you have a set response ready in case anyone ever asks.

by Carly April 21, 2014

A couple of weeks ago as a blog prompt, it was suggested we post a picture that pretty much sums up our Fontbonne career. Here’s a good one to sum up my life as of late: I don’t think I’ve ever been so sleep deprived in my entire life, between early morning track practices, staying […]
