Finals are coming!

Yahoo~~!! The fall semester is almost coming to the end, it’s excited right? I can’t wait to go back home!!!! But before the semester ends, I know I need to have everything done and get a good grade to end my semester beautifully. So 3 more weeks to study hard!!! The best places that I like to study on campus are definitely the second floor of the library, where there are a bunch of individual tables where you can study and do homework quietly. Also, another place I like to go is the computer room in Ryan Hall. One day I went there for color printing and I found this awesome place with very few students — you can use the computers there and study in a quite place.

Sometimes I will also go to a coffee shop nearby because I do need some noise to write essays, especially very long essays — I can’t write them without people around. This is just my habit :)

So, everyone, are you all ready to end this semester? Let’s study hard and play hard during the Christmas break!!!!

Staying Organized

by Katie on October 1, 2014

in College Life

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 wonderfully addictive tool that you can use to find lots of fun DIYs for college and for other projects.  It uses boards to organize pins (think: links to website articles or images that that interest you) and lets you go back to those pins at any time via your Pinterest profile.  Just sign up for an account and search different DIYs, or utilize their huge number of Pinterest board categories to search a broad amount of topics.

A big thing on Pinterest is their DIYs on organization.  I searched far and wide on Pinterest’s DIY boards (so you could save your precious study time!) and found the best, most convenient organization-DIYs for college students.  Smartphone apps are another great way to stay organized, so I included one app to very useful links for college students.  I often use my phone’s calendar for study prompts and reminders.  I also use AnyList (one of the apps listed in the 3rd link below) to make To-do lists, grocery lists, and any other important reminders.

Stay organized this semester and enjoy the following links!

One of the things I like best about Fontbonne, and I’m sure I’ve said this many times before, is how easy it is to get involved in things.  And not just get involved, but dominate.  Perhaps this sounds negative, but I’ve always felt that Fontbonne provides a perfect “big fish in a little pond” atmosphere, and that’s been really helpful to my personal success here.
Let me explain a little further. Looking at me now, you’d never doubt that I love being the center of attention.  I love seeing emails about being in Fontbonne photoshoots, I have no problem giving presentations or making videos to share about Environmental Club, and of course I jumped at the chance to write a blog for Fontbonne as well.  I know a lot of people here, and I’m no stranger to them, either. That’s how I like things; I like to be friends with everyone.
Of course, some people scoff at the “big fish” analogy.  They doubt that it’s a true reflection of life, and that things will just be harder when I’m out in the real world. Well, I disagree.  How would I know how to be a big fish at all if I haven’t had any practice? Fontbonne has definitely taught me some important things about how the world works.  I’ve learned a lot about communication, compromise, and character during my time here, and those are all things I can apply to my future, no matter how big or small it is.  Because if I’m going to be in a big pond, I’d rather be a big fish than a little one.
Ah, flashback to freshman year. Loved blogging for ya, Fontbonne! It was an honor, a privilege, and a pleasure.

Over the weekend, my friends and I took a break from studying and took some pictures on the snow!!

Even though it was freezing cold we managed to take great pictures of Fontbonne.

Stay warm!

Study Time

by Kristen November 25, 2013

As we’re nearing final exams, the pressure to finish projects and start studying begins to increase.  I always begin to see more students hiding out in corners of campus, preparing for tests.  I know finals can be a stressful time, and we don’t always like to think about them this early.  But eventually, we have […]

A Day on Campus

by Deanna April 30, 2012

Just last week, my friend Shannon and I were both feeling stressed because of our classes and work. To relieve stress, we decided we were going to have a day around campus! We took “naps” in the Meadow (it was more like we just laid there in the sun chatting), we drew with chalk around […]
