by Tim October 14, 2014

In ten years, I will be 34 with a bachelor’s degree in Professional Writing. To me, the future is a scary thought because I have no clue what I want to do. Maybe some sort of writing writing or editing. Fontbonne has already helped me open a few doors to some careers. I am going [...]

Now, [...]

Why I love St. Louis

by Sarah Rose October 7, 2014

If someone were to ask me, why I love St. Louis, I am not too sure if I could give exactly one particular reason as to why. I can think of a few reasons though, such as the big town, small city feeling; short commutes; several forms of entertainment close in proximity; there are so [...]

I am very crafty and creative; I enjoy DIY projects and trying new things regularly. The most recent project I did was a mosaic on my room! Since I live in Cotta Hall, I am not allowed to paint or permanently change the aspect of my room, therefore I had to be really creative when [...]

Its a bird! Its a plane! No wait, is that a balloon?!

by Sarah Rose October 3, 2014

As I browsed through my various social media accounts during multiple homework breaks, I noticed so many photos from the balloon race a few weekends ago.  Sadly I was unable to participate in the festivities myself though compared to last year, my experience was quite the opposite.  Last year I entered a contest/drawing to have [...]

Home Away From Home

by Taylor October 2, 2014

One of my favorite things about moving into a dorm at the beginning of the school year is the fact that I get a new space to decorate! It’s something I can make my own! I love to take a bland and boring dorm room with white walls and white floors and turn it into [...]

Staying Organized

by Katie October 1, 2014

If you’re anything like me, you start the semester with the best of intentions.  You vow to stay perfectly organized and file everything in its appropriate place before you go to sleep at night… and then September rolls around, and you’re back to your unorganized, I’ll-deal-with-it-later habits. If you know anything about Pinterest, it’s a [...]
