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!!!!
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.
