Hi everyone! This is our last time together for the fall semester of 2016; can you believe it? This has got to be the fastest semester that I have ever had to experience. I could have swore that just yesterday was Welcome Week back in August! But I hope everyone enjoyed their fall semester! I know that mine was most definitely crazy, but also fantastic at the same time!

My semester I felt was pretty great because of my new job, meeting new people, and as always making new memories with the people that I love. My new job only enhanced to the great semester because even though a job is a job, mine was a large stress reliever. I work at the After Care program at Central Christian School, so I am lucky enough to work with some pretty great kids 3-4 days a week! I am so grateful to have a job that I actually enjoy.

Meeting new people is also always a plus, and this year I met so many new people that I consider great friends. This was my first semester as a WING leader for orientation, and I met multiple new faces that I love seeing everyday! (Shoutout to my Blue Whales for being such a great first team! Love all you guys 💙🐳) I just enjoy getting to know people, even those I knew last year, but got closer to this semester because our times just clicked.

Making new memories with people I love is possibly the best because we now have new things to look back and reminisce on. Coming to Fontbonne required me to make a whole new group of friends because not a lot of people from my high school came here. So all of my new friends that I have made in my year and a half at Fontbonne, I thank you for being my friend because you have enhanced my time at Fontbonne and are one of the MANY reasons I keep coming back after each semester.

Thank you everyone for reading my blogs this semester, and I hope you all finish strongly! We’ve only got a week and a half left!

peace out ✌️

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I hope everyone is having a great day with their friends and families. Unfortunately, I did not get to leave campus to go home this year for break, but that’s okay because I’ve found several ways to still have an awesome Thanksgiving! I know I’m not the only one who stayed here for the holiday, and I just want share some tips for having a fun break even if you don’t get to leave.

Take everyone up on offers for Thanksgiving dinner– Once all my St. Louis native friends found out that I would be staying on campus today, they all felt sorry for me and invited me to their family’s Thanksgiving dinners. I got at least 5 invites, so I basically have an entire day of eating lined up, which I am pumped about. It’s also fun to hang out with other people’s families and see how they interact. If someone offers you a totally free meal and the opportunity to hang out with them and their crazy/fun family, take them up on it! You still get to eat, and you’re not sitting in your room alone feeling sorry for yourself that you’re not home.

Find other people stranded on campus and hang out- Even though campus is mostly deserted (and a little bit creepy quiet honestly) you are not the only one around. There are always about 15-20 students who stay over breaks. Find them and do something! You can bond over your mutual boredom. It’s a great opportunity to make friends, and what else do you have to do on this quiet campus anyway?

Do your laundry- I know, I know. This sounds like a super boring tip, but we all know the struggle of 150 students trying to share 4 washers/dryers per building. Now is your moment where no one has left their gross clothes in the washer for the past 3 hours, and you reallyyyy need clean underwear, so you have to hurriedly take them out and put your clothes in before they get back and catch you in the act and get all mad that you’re touching their stuff. Been there. Avoid that now and do laundry while no no one is here.

Stay off of social media- The fear of missing out is so real when you’re sitting on your empty campus and your siblings and cousins keep sending you hilarious snap chats of Thanksgiving dinner back home. Ignore them for now, and find other things to do to entertain/distract yourself. It’s easy to feel sad and miserable when you’re comparing your day to the glamorized version’s of everyone else’s on social media. Remember that most of those posts are fake, and nobody is ever having as much fun on their snap chat stories as they want the world to think. Also, don’t forget to feel #blessed that the one perk of not being home for dinner is getting to dodge awkward and inappropriate questions from extended family members about your personal and or/romantic life. Bet you never see those on your sister’s Snapchat.

Happy Holidays, Fontbonne! Enjoy your break, and I’ll see you all when you get back!

  1. Spend time with family and friends.
  2. Try to make a recipe for Thanksgiving whether that is a dessert or side dish.
  3. RELAX, RELAX, RELAX!
  4. Do some sort of exercise, whether that is a short walk or playing Twister with the family just to work off some of that food.
  5. Remind yourself that we are almost done with this semester!!

Halloween

by Patricia on November 21, 2016

in Extracurricular

I’m a bit late for this post, but on Halloween I did all sorts of things. My costume was of Elsa from the movie Frozen. I told everyone that I would be a creepy clown, and people took me seriously. I even had a neighbor show up to my door and give me a really gruesome clown mask. My mom answered the door and freaked out! But I never intended to go as a clown. I knew I wanted to be a Disney Princess and there were some cheap costumes on amazon under  $10.

Anyway, on Halloween night I went trick or treating with my 7 year old neighbor. Then I went to a Halloween party at my parents’ work. Then I came home and watched Mike Myers, staring Jamie Lee Curtis. I ate candy and orange serbet.

Let’s Talk Music…

by Anna November 7, 2016

Okay, so where do I begin for this post?!  First of all, let’s start with the fact that I am pretty much all over the map as far as favorite artists/genres/etc. goes.  A lot of the time, it depends on my mood — if I’m a little down, or really upbeat, or stressed, or open […]

BTS of Fontbonne After Dark

by DeMarcus November 2, 2016

Fontbonne After Dark is a podcast that me and Lauren (fellow blogger) created as a way to have our own “radio station” on campus. I had always thought of having my own talk show or being a host on a radio show because who doesn’t want to be in the industry? After I saw an […]

Some of my favorite Halloween activities involve carving pumpkins and baking pumpkin seeds. Ever since I can remember, my family and I have all gone to a […]

Happy Halloween!

by Anna October 26, 2016

Okay, so it’s not Halloween quite yet…I know!  But if you’re not a celebrator of the holiday itself, it’s not a huge deal.  I prefer to think of it as part of the whole fall experience — a specific day to go all out and celebrate fall.  I am not a fan of haunted houses, […]
