Happy Holidays

by Alumni Posts December 11, 2013

I feel so guilty already! My family doesn’t exactly have set holiday plans for Winter break like everybody else. Rather, we’re spending time bonding with each other because I feel like that’s something we can certainly improve on! The Christmas season isn’t about gifts and gluttony, food and folly. It’s about love. Thus, that’s what […]

Thanksgiving and Finals Week are coming!

by Penny November 25, 2013

The thanksgiving break is coming, but that also means that our finals week is coming. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays in the United States, because it means family gathering. It’s like the Lunar Chinese New Year in Taiwan. However, it’s sad that the final week of the semester is coming as well. Therefore, […]

Yes and No

by Isabella October 28, 2013

Yesterday morning, I went to the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes along Forsyth, hoping to hear Fr. Carl Scheble’s homily. Fr. Carl was not celebrating, but Fr. Sean Martin of Saint Louis University did. I thoroughly enjoyed his homily because two comments stuck out. His first comment was: we are not perfect. God knows […]

Taking the Leap

by Alumni Posts October 10, 2013

Luckily for me and my family, we celebrated this past weekend with my other cousin, who just got married this past Saturday. It was an outdoor wedding, so, naturally everyone was worried as to whether the anticipated rain […]

I Fell in Love Again.

by Alumni Posts April 30, 2013

The last blog post of the semester. Before you read on, I would highly, highly recommend you listen to this song, which the title of my post is derived from. For one, because it’s so beautiful, I think, and two, because things will make more sense if you do. I’ve been listening to it a […]

A Place Called Vertigo

by Alumni Posts November 26, 2012

Have you ever experienced Vertigo? It is like a non-stop ticket on the tea cup ride. When I was a kid the tea cup was my favorite ride, as an adult, the vertigo tea cup ride could certainly go away. I get vertigo at times when I’m stressed, the weather changes, or I’m tired. The […]

Something to Belive In

by Alumni Posts November 26, 2012

Maybe I truly am a child of the 1980′s but when I started thinking about what I was thankful for I started to hum Poison’s song, Something to Believe In. I couldn’t quite put my finger on why that came to my mind but I looked up the song lyrics and could see clearly why. […]

Feeling Political

by Alumni Posts November 26, 2012

This year got really nasty with comments and jabs at each side of the Presidential debate and that was just on my Facebook among various friends. This year the politics of politics took its toll on my mind and spirit. I consider myself liberal in my views and found myself being called out on several […]
