by Corie March 25, 2014

Concert Countdowns

by Carlyn March 25, 2014

I admit, I am absolutely obsessed with pop culture, especially musicians. I enjoy listening to live music, especially if the singer is considered a celebrity. I have major fan-girl moments where I scream so loud my eyes water and jump so much my ankles hurt. Over spring break, I saw Demi Lovato in concert at […]

Come Sail Away

by Marielle March 12, 2014

In case anyone was wondering, I will be spending Spring Break on the beaches of the Meramec river in Arnold, MO. So basically, I’m just going home. I ain’t mad, though. To be honest, I don’t really have the kind of personality where I can just drop everything, party for a week, and then face […]

by Kristen March 3, 2014

Like I promised, this week is the sequel to my last post of suggested St. Louis restaurants.  Most of the places I suggested last week are typical types of food we could find at many places—many people have had pasta, burgers, and donuts before.  So today I would like to bring to your attention some […]

by Corie March 3, 2014

This past weekend was my first Mardi Gras experience! I had a blast!! I went with some new friends: Tyler, Kristen, Alexis and Tim. It was also my first time in Soulard. Beads, people and beer everywhere. We took the metro link to get there. I figured it was going to be crowded, and it […]

STL Restaurants

by Kristen February 18, 2014

On Friday, I was treated to a Valentine’s Dinner at Guido’s Pizzeria and Tapas on The Hill (if you are not familiar with “The Hill,” it is the name for the Italian neighborhood in St. Louis).  The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was upscale without being overly priced.  I thought I would blog and […]

MetalMadness.

by Corie February 10, 2014

Over the weekend I went to a show for my internship. It was crazy! The bands were awesome. I saw: Stray from the path, Like Moths to Flames and For Today. It was at the Fubar. If you have ever been there, you know it is a small venue. The line to get in was […]

Rediscoveries

by Isabella February 10, 2014

I’ve lived in St. Louis for almost 5 and a half years away from my native Taiwan. I have my days when I feel like a gypsy, but I find they are counterbalanced by the warmth of the people in St. Louis. This notorious weather cannot stop me from enjoying the “littleness” of Fontbonne; being […]

Only A Month In.

by Corie February 3, 2014

January is over! I can’t believe it! This semester is going to go by so fast just because I have so much to do. This semester is the start to my senior year of college. I feel like I just graduated high school not that long ago. It has only been a month in and […]
