As Spring Semester is in full swing, I wanted to share a few things I am excited about in this coming year.

I am so excited to have the opportunity to be spending my summer abroad this summer studying Photography at Regent’s University in London. I am thankful for Fontbonne for giving me this opportunity and giving me the channel to explore my creativity across the pond.

I was fortunate to be able to receive a partial scholarship because of my involvement in the Honors Program here at Fontbonne University. Without this, it is unlikely that I would have been able to do this.

This opportunity will allow me to test myself by moving to another country for 7 weeks by myself, not knowing anyone else going. This is the time in our lives where we can go and be spontaneous and find ourselves. Thinking of all of the people I am going to met, food I am going to eat, and places I am going to see are making me want this semester to go by even faster!

I cannot wait to be able to come back to Fontbonne and share my experiences with my friends, family, and peers and help to make me a better person and leader on campus.

I am so excited for the things I have coming up for me in the rest of 2017 and I hope you have a wonderful year filled with adventure, excitement, and amazing people.

xoxo,

Claire

Starting my second year at Fontbonne University has been quite different than my first few weeks at Fontbonne last fall. Walking around campus, even more friendly faces and waves across the meadows are a daily occurrence. Hanging out with other students on breaks is a common occurrence just as likely that a quick pick up game is going to happen.

Walks to Forest Park, the Delmar Loop, or just around Clayton have become more common as the summer heat is going away and the fall breeze is kicking in. Afternoon sporting events and FAB events, as well as other on-campus activities, fill the schedules of the busy students of Fontbonne University.

As most of the sophomores at Fontbonne University, classes related to my major consume most of my schedule and extracurricular activities. The importance of maintaining an impeccable GPA and building up professional profiles have been stressed and reemphasized on an almost daily basis. Sophomore year at Fontbonne University has been one for the books thus far, and I look forward to what else is in store.

This year I embarked on one of the most amazing Spring Break adventure of my entire life.  Though the adventure was full of ups and downs, I wouldn’t have traded anything.  My best friend, Brooke, and I went to three different Charlie Puth shows in a week.  We started with driving four hours to New Albany, IN to visit our friend Jessica.  We spent the night and were able to spend most of the day exploring New Albany.  That evening we traveled to Louisville (about a half hour) to our Air BnB (a website where you can rent someone’s apartment for a short period of time).  Then we made our way to the Louisville show; mind you, we were a few minutes later than what we were supposed to be.  We got all the things and were immediately taken down to Charlie’s dressing room.  It was such a cool experience to walk in to a room and see Charlie sitting casually in a chair. He sang One Call Away in a lower tone to warm up his voice. We got to take a selfie and then stood in line for about two hours after all of that.  We made friends with security and built a relationship with his tour manager.

The Louisville show was amazing and the next morning we were off to Hamilton Ohio.  In Hamilton we got to hangout with Brooke’s family for the day and had such a good time.

The next day we were off to Columbus to see our next show.  On the way to Columbus we noticed a weird smoke coming from my car; we thought this was dust since we were in a construction zone.  Once we realized it was smoke my RPMs starting raving and we had to pull over on the left side of the highway (because we were in the fast lane).  It was approximately 40 degrees outside and we were stuck 6 hours away from our parents.  We didn’t know what to do.

I met some pretty amazing people that day, got to ride in the back of a cop car, connected with Charlie’s tour manager again and got to go on the tour bus to meet Charlie for a second time.  Needless to say, the show was still amazing!

My car was finally fixed and we were celebrating with an Easter egg hunt with Brooke’s family.  Then we were off to our third and final show with two new recruits (Brooke’s cousins).  We managed to get them VIP tickets as well so that they could stand by us.  This time when Johnathan (Charlie’s manager) saw us, we had a greeting of “Friends”.  We were put back into the front row for our final show and it was such an amazing experience.

I couldn’t have asked for a better adventure for my last #FBUSpringBreak.  Check out the video of our adventure below.

This has quickly become my mantra this year and I have never been happier. For as long as I can remember, I have always gone somewhere with someone. No big deal, right? Wrong. Going anywhere alone sounded crazy for the longest time and I always dreaded just the idea of it. Recently, I have taken up *practically* hibernating at Starbucks. This has lead to me not only being more productive, but has also been my first stepping stone into truly unleashing my independence. I’ve done countless things 100% on my own since then and even strike up conversation with friendly strangers from time to time. I know it may not seem like a huge accomplishment just yet, but it’s all about the stepping stones, people. My goal by the end of the year is to be a-okay (and actually enjoy) going to a movie on my own. My goal in the next couple of years is to move to a place where I know absolutely no one (just don’t tell my mom just yet). When I step back and think about where I want to be five years from now, my options are truly endless. Life is about adventure and dreaming big…and I can’t wait to see where my post-grad adventures take me.

Keep on dreamin’, friends.
