This past week I got to meet up with my friend, Ruth! We decided to spend the entire day together since we never get to see each other during the school year.
First, we went to the History Museum in Forest Park and spent about an hour there. We got to see some interesting and fascinating exhibits that made a visit to the museum worth while.
After the History Museum we made our way to the Central West End to eat lunch at the Wildflower Restaurant. I had never been there before and was very impressed! Since the weather was pretty nice that day we got to eat outside. I ordered a Caesar salad and a steak sandwich. It was delicious! (Below: Ruth and I in front of the Wildflower Restaurant.)
After we got our tummies full at Wildflower, we decided to take a walk around Forest Park. Walking around Forest Park is one of my favorite things to do and I felt it was a must since the weather was so nice! We stopped in front of a fountain and got our picture taken by some people passing by. We walked around Forest Park a little bit and then decided to get some frozen yogurt at Orange Leaf to end our day. It was the perfect treat and so yummy! (Below: Ruth and I at Forest Park.)
All in all our day full of adventures was wonderful! We got to catch up and hang out which was much needed! Hope everyone is having a great summer!
Wondering what to do during your long summer break? Maybe you’re getting a little bored and need some ideas of things to do? Well I’ve came up with a list of 3 things to do in the St. Louis area during your break and they’re free!
1. Take a walk through the beautiful Forest Park. I’ve blogged about Forest Park before so you can be sure that it’s a great place to go! Forest Park is roughly 1,200 acres and is absolutely gorgeous! I often take walks with my friends throughout the park and the scenery is always spectacular.
2. The Missouri History Museum is another great place to visit and the fact that admission is free just makes it even better! Sometimes special exhibits cost so beware of that, but general admission is free. There are ancient artifacts and amazing displays that will make you feel like you’re back in another era.
3. A third place I recommend is the St. Louis Zoo. Similar to the History Museum, general admission is free, but special exhibits or attractions do cost. General admission in the Zoo will give you access to see all your favorite animals including lions, tigers, and bears…oh my!
All 3 of these places are great to go to if you find yourself a little restless during summertime. I know I’ll be going to each one during my break!
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!
Hope everybody is enjoying their summer, thus far! I know the weather has been far from ideal but just like everything else in life, the days are what you make of them!
I have a busy summer ahead of me! As far as Fontbonne life goes, I am currently living Tuesday to Tuesday by working as an Intern with the Marketing Department.. It’s always nice to be living at home for the summer but I enjoy returning back to school once a week to work, see a few friends, and enjoy a workout in FU’s weightroom.. When I’m not working at Fontbonne, I am working at a local sports store close to my home in Washington, Mo! I enjoy my off days by making the mile and a half run to my neighborhood pool before I sit there and relax for a bit.. I have a few trips planned but nothing too serious.. As the summer comes to an end, I will be studying for the GRE and prepping myself to enter Chiropractic school..
I suggest everybody get a summer reading list.. If you already have one, great.. If you don’t, get one.. Other than naps, which I have talked about numerous times, reading is something else that I think is very important to life as a young adult.. I don’t get much time to open a book but I love every minute of it when it seldom happens..
If you’re looking for stuff to do to keep you busy, I highly suggest you get a Pinterest or get a job, with those two things the possibilities are endless!
