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.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Lone Elk Park. This park is about 30 minutes from campus but definitely worth the drive! Lone Elk Park is 546 acres of beautiful scenery located on top of a hill where you can drive around and look at beautiful elk and bison. There are even pavilions and grills where you can stop and have lunch with your friends or family. While here I was not able to see any bison but, there were plenty of elk to look at that came right next to the road. Lone Elk Park is free to get into however, donations are welcomed. Be advised that no motorcycles or pets are allowed in the park. If you have free time and want to enjoy the beautiful weather and foliage, take a drive down to the park to check out some of these astonishing animals.
Just how close we were able to get to the elk!
Stress is firmly set into the lives of students all of the world right now. I wanted to share some of the best quotes that help me get through my most stressful days, nights, and even weeks.
Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about your day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life. -Marilu Henner
He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature. -Socrates
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. -Ecclesiastes
Stress never ends so there is no point in stressing about every little detail. Most importantly, in a year you’ll barely remember why you felt so stressed over all of these little things, so why stress about it now?
Hi everyone! I congratulate for continuing to read because now we are one week 3! This week we’re going to talk about the best season of the year: FALL! 🍂☕🎃 One of the main reasons I love fall is the drastic weather changes. Sweltering hot summer days and nights turn into chilly, breezy fall days with crisp, colorful leaves falling to the ground from the trees. (yikes, that was super poetic…)
I also am in love with all of the clothes that I can wear in the fall, as opposed to in the summer; Sweaters, jeans, boots, scarves, and beanies are just a few of my favorite things… Maroon and Army Green also happen to be two of my favorite colors, and now we are finally in the season that it’s acceptable to wear them again!! I love all of the layers that come with fall (despite it being 100 degrees on the first day of fall as I write this). Fashion is definitely one of the better things about fall!
There’s also Halloween we get to look forward to throughout the entire month of October and then Thanksgiving throughout November (personally two of my absolute favorite holidays to celebrate). Anyways, hopefully these cool temperatures make way to us soon, and I hope fall treats all of you as well as I expect it to treat me!
(btw I hope you all caught the reference to Grease in my title 😉)
see you later!
