Christmas Break

Finale.

by Jess on December 8, 2016

in College Life

Well, this semester has finally come to a close! My last class of the year is tonight and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m really looking forward to a month of recuperation – I definitely need it. Grad school is even more mentally taxing than my undergraduate was, and there was a time when I never thought I’d say those words!

Over break I’m going to Orlando (of course) and to Pennsylvania to visit my family. I’m hoping to get in a lot of Disney World, sunshine, and then, on the flip side – snow on Christmas! It hasn’t snowed in PA for the past few Christmases, so I’m hoping Jack Frost will be visiting this year…

I learned how tough I was this semester. There was a lot of frustration, a lot of sleepless nights, and a lot of anxiety. But guess what – we all made it! I can guarantee you only learn to be stronger as college – and life – goes on.

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL break. Eat lots of Christmas cookies and don’t forget to save some for Santa and his reindeer 😉

Keep moving forward.

xoxo Jess

It’s finally the holidays! That means cinnamon scented candles, gift shopping, glitter and lights everywhere! One of my favorite things about this time of year is family traditions! Here is a list of some of my favorite traditions.

  1. Staying up late Christmas Eve and watching movie marathons such as the Harry Potter series, Gone With the Wind, and Lord of the Rings
  2. Helping my mom bake dozens of cookies!
  3. Driving around neighborhoods to look at the Christmas lights.
  4. Decorating the tree with all the past childhood ornaments
  5. My newest tradition is going to the zoo and looking at all the lights and seeing the penguins!

Happy Holidays! What are some of your favorite traditions around the holidays?

Hi everyone! This is our last time together for the fall semester of 2016; can you believe it? This has got to be the fastest semester that I have ever had to experience. I could have swore that just yesterday was Welcome Week back in August! But I hope everyone enjoyed their fall semester! I know that mine was most definitely crazy, but also fantastic at the same time!

My semester I felt was pretty great because of my new job, meeting new people, and as always making new memories with the people that I love. My new job only enhanced to the great semester because even though a job is a job, mine was a large stress reliever. I work at the After Care program at Central Christian School, so I am lucky enough to work with some pretty great kids 3-4 days a week! I am so grateful to have a job that I actually enjoy.

Meeting new people is also always a plus, and this year I met so many new people that I consider great friends. This was my first semester as a WING leader for orientation, and I met multiple new faces that I love seeing everyday! (Shoutout to my Blue Whales for being such a great first team! Love all you guys 💙🐳) I just enjoy getting to know people, even those I knew last year, but got closer to this semester because our times just clicked.

Making new memories with people I love is possibly the best because we now have new things to look back and reminisce on. Coming to Fontbonne required me to make a whole new group of friends because not a lot of people from my high school came here. So all of my new friends that I have made in my year and a half at Fontbonne, I thank you for being my friend because you have enhanced my time at Fontbonne and are one of the MANY reasons I keep coming back after each semester.

Thank you everyone for reading my blogs this semester, and I hope you all finish strongly! We’ve only got a week and a half left!

peace out ✌️

Hello friends!

As the semester slowly comes to an end, that means the holidays are approaching! Since I live far away from Fontbonne, I have to plan my trips to go home way in advance. I recently flew home to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family. In this post, I want to give you all some tips and tricks on traveling to and from school.

-Look at the Academic Calendar (found on Fontbonne’s website) as soon as possible to see what days you don’t have school.

-Figure out which days/times you are able to leave school and book your flights; be sure to check multiple airlines and other traveling resources such as Travelocity and Orbitz to find the best deals!

-Pack lightly: you may come back with more than you brought in the first place, so plan accordingly.

-If you are taking public transportation such as the MetroLink or city bus, check their schedules and pricing.

-For those of you who may travel via an airplane, review the TSA safety guidlines for what you can/cannot bring with you on the airplane and the specific carry-on luggage sizes.

-Have tons of fun! Traveling allows you to see so many new places and faces, and sometimes the best part is meeting new people and hearing their stories.

Do I See Winter Break on the Horizon?!

by Fontbonne University December 2, 2014

There is nothing more satisfying at the end of a semester than hearing Christmas music practically everywhere you go, shopping malls filled with door-buster discounts, food cooking away on the stove by your parents or grandparents, family coming together, snow falling on the ground, and being able to put your feet up! Why do I […]

by Alumni Posts December 17, 2013

The grades are now all in. The semester is officially over. And I have only one semester left at Fontbonne University. This semester was definitely different for me in many, many ways. First of all, I only had classes two days per week, and I spent the other days of the week interning in a […]

Never Say “Twenty Minutes Tops”

by Alumni Posts January 21, 2013

One of the themes in Disney’s movie “The Haunted Mansion” revolved around the idea that nothing takes just twenty minutes to complete. We’ve only been back in school for a week, and, looking at the schedule, things don’t appear to be terrible. I, for one, am lucky enough to have the ultimate luxury of only […]

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year…Begins After Finals

by Alumni Posts November 29, 2012

The first semester of the school year is almost over! I can hardly believe it, partly because I have too many tests and projects to complete in the next week and a half. I’m not sure if it’s even possible to do as much as I have to, but I’m sure every other college student […]
