Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a HUGE fangirl. What is a “fangirl,” you may ask? The formal definition from Merriam-Webster says “a girl or woman who is an extremely or overly enthusiastic fan of someone or something.” In other words, a diehard fan that goes crazy at the sight or sound of a beloved artist. That is me 100%. (I even have a couple tattoos representing my favorite artists, if that doesn’t tell you enough about me…) I love going to as many concerts as I can, and sometimes even travel to see a particular artist. I feel like the memories I make at concerts are always worth it, and I never regret going to see a live show of any kind. The energy of a live performance is like no other.
It seems as if there is always a concert or show that I have tickets for. It keeps life exciting; there’s always something to look forward to. I already had tickets to a Beatles tribute band called Rain. I see them annually at the Fabulous Fox theater. And now I also secured tickets to The Weeknd and Lady Gaga! I will be traveling to Seattle in April to stay with some family members up there, and see The Weekend while in town. I have never seen him live before and am really looking forward to it! Lady Gaga is coming to St. Louis in November, so have a bit of time before that one. But still exciting! This will be my second time seeing her live in concert. I am anticipating Ed Sheeran (one of my absolute favs) to announce tour dates any day now. So that will hopefully be another one to add to my list. (My wallet won’t be too happy about that one..) Stay tuned for my many concert excursions. Life is always an adventure!
This weather we have been having makes me so so happy! The 60-70 degree weather is to die for, and I can’t wait until it is here all the time. This kind of weather makes the wait for spring a little unbearable, and I cannot wait. The April flowers are so gorgeous, and St. Louis in the spring weather is so charming. The Art Museum is opening their famous exhibit: “Art in Bloom,” and I am so excited to walk the halls of the art museum, the exhibit is absolutely breathtaking. Watercolor is one of my favorite art forms to do and to see. I encourage everyone to get outside this weekend, enjoy the beautiful weather. Also check out the “Art in Bloom” opening on February 24! I am most excited for the beautiful spring weather and a fabulous trip to one of my favorite St. Louis staples: the art museum!
This is my first time blogging with Fontbonne and I am pretty excited to see how it goes this semester. I am a second semester senior at Fontbonne and I have truly enjoyed my last three and a half years here. I still can’t believe that graduation is just around the corner, but I know God has a plan for me once it comes around. For the last three years I have been on the Women’s golf team at Fontbonne and I have made so many friends while on the team. I have made so many memories in other cities and can’t wait to tell you more about my adventures on the golf team as my final season approaches. I have also been a member of the service organization on campus at Fontbonne for the last three years and I really enjoy taking other students to service sites off campus.
I have lived here in St. Louis my whole life and I am a die hard Cardinals baseball fan. I am also an only child and I have a dog back at home. I am very close with my family and I enjoy traveling to different parts of the United States with my immediate family. I can’t wait for my new adventure with my parents in May to discover a few new cities. Stay tuned to hear more about life at Fontbonne and who I am.
Even though fall already started few weeks ago, I still want to share the different fun activities I have done during this season. I am not a fan of cold weather, but right now it’s kind of a mix between cold and hot so its fine.
I went apple picking for the first time and it was very fun. We had to walk through the apple orchards looking for good red or green apples. Personally, I prefer the green ones. It was really tasteful having fresh apples.
The week after apple picking I went to Eckert’s farm for the evening. It was a great day very sunny and the sunset was beautiful. There were different things to do there, like, games, giving food to kangaroos, and spending time around a warm bonfire. When the night came we had smores and hot dogs, they were delicious.
I appreciate this kind of activities that Fontbonne University offers, especially if you are not from here it is a great way to know more about St. Louis. So far I have enjoyed fall season. I can’t believe we are already in the middle of the semester, time is flying like crazy. I hope everyone is enjoying fall season too.
