Christmas

by Patricia on December 7, 2015

in Extracurricular

After my exams, I will start celebrating Christmas! I will start hanging decorations on my porch and I will hang up both Christmas trees. We have a green one and a white one. I will also bake cookies. This year I am going to make a yule tide cake. I will make sugar cookies, wreath cookies, pecan crescents, chocolate-covered pretzels, and some new recipes. I will also work at McDonald’s, but not too much because I have some Christmas shopping to do. I also have to give my parents a wish list. The day after Christmas we are visiting my grandma in Indianapolis again. We are not sure what gift we will get her. Even though she is very very short on funds, she always manages to buy us Christmas presents. You can never refuse a gift from her, she will just mail it to your house whether you like it or not!

It is almost that time of the year again where people make wish lists, to-do lists, and all kinds of possible lists they can come up with. I, too, have a bucket list of things that I want to do before the year ends. Of course, some of them are leftovers from 2011. Those crossed out are the ones I have achieved.

  1. Have a toned and healthy body: Quite impossible. Food is just, you know, the most sacred thing to humanity. Just can’t let it go to waste.
  2. Travel to 3 different countries in the world: to Japan in February, to Indonesia in June, to America in August. I’m from Vietnam, by the way.
  3. Get into a good university: Here I am in Fontbonne.
  4. Earn some money by writing: Because I plan to become a writer. Thank you Fontbonne for paying me for my written words.
  5. Get A for Math: It was easier than I thought.
  6. Exercise everyday: I’m crossing this because walking 40 minutes to and from school counts. And 15 minutes to Starbucks.
  7. Travel to 3 cities in America: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago. My next stop is San Francisco. Yes, I do love traveling.
  8. Save $100 every month: Simply impossible…
  9. Make 3 new friends in America: And I made way more than 3.
  10. Learn a new language: I’m learning Chinese.

So I was able to do 8 out of 10. It was pretty impressive because last year I only did 5/10. Guess America is quite the place for me! I have not made a list for 2016 yet, but it would possibly filled with travel and diet plans.

How about you? Did you achieved your goals for 2015? Tell me!

Being near the holidays, here’s a list of some of the few things I am thankful for this year:

1. Good friends
2. Supportive family
3. A paying job
4. Having one more semester of undergrad!!
5. A roof over my head
6. Netflix
7. Food on the table
8. Being in good health
9. Having somewhere to sleep at night
10. An education

Just remember that Thanksgiving isn’t the only time of the year you have to be thankful about good things happening in your life or just thankful in general. It’s okay to be thankful for things that happen all the time and just being able to get up in the morning! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving break!!! Two more weeks to go!!!

A New Language

by Patricia on November 30, 2015

in Academics,Extracurricular

I have made a life changing decision… I’m going to become bilingual in French. I took it for 4 years in high school and even earned some college credit but had to quit since fontbonne doesn’t offer any foreign language. However, I have a cousin who is on the verge of becoming bilingual and I thought it would be a cool thing to do! I could teach myself and I already have a head start. In order to do this, I downloaded some apps so I can hear words sounded out. I also do some reading. I try to do this everyday. Of course it’s not the same as getting a degree; I’m not officially qualified,  but I can learn it as well as someone who is!

A Time To Be Thankful

by Fontbonne University November 23, 2015

Thanksgiving is literally only a few days away, and it feels like time has flown since the beginning of the semester. Out in the stores it looks more like Christmas, which I’ve always found a little sad. Thanksgiving should be celebrated with just as much fanfare. To me, Thanksgiving has always been mostly about family. […]

Thanksgiving

by Patricia November 20, 2015

I am very excited for Thanksgiving. I will be visiting my grandma in Indianapolis! She is 91 and we are taking her to her friend’s house. I don’t like anything but turkey, biscuits and desserts! Every time I visit my grandma I take video of her and post it on Facebook. It usually gets over […]

Fall at Fontbonne University

by Claire October 26, 2015

Fall is my favorite season in Saint Louis. Although this is very stereotypical, you really cannot beat a Saint Louis fall. It is not too cold and not too hot. It is a nice mix of switching back and forth between shorts and jeans and each day is a new adventure when trying to figure […]

Do You Ever Wonder If You Could Learn Another Language By Yourself Alone?

by Fontbonne University October 23, 2015

I speak three languages. One is my mother tongue. One is part of the school curriculum since I was young. One was self-picked-up due to mere personal interest. Learning languages is difficult, not to mention languages that are not in the same “system” as your mother tongue. Take Chinese and English as examples: the basic […]

Friday, FAB, and Fundraisers – Oh My!

by Fontbonne University October 19, 2015

Happy Friday, Fonties! Friday is my one day that I don’t have class (woo!), but typically tends to be the busiest. As President of the Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB), we have a meeting every Friday at 11:00 AM and (typically) an event at 8:00 PM. In between there, I’m usually spending time up in the […]
