I start blogging last semester, but I didn’t was constant at all. So one of my goals this semester is posting more often! I went back to Ecuador for the break and it was amazing. I return full of energy to start my second semester here. I have to admit I was a little worried about winter here, but it hasn’t been that cold as I imagine.
So far everything has been great. I love my new education courses, and also I am so excited about starting observation practices this semester. Something I would like to share is that this semester the Latino Hispanic Union is officially an organization! It is amazing to have a space like this here at Fontbonne, where you can share with people who has Hispanic or Latino heritage, and also with people who is just interested about it. We want this organization to be inclusive, so if you are not Hispanic or latino you are totally welcome to come and share good moments and activities with us!
Hope everyone have a great week! Till the next post,
Here I share a pic of my friend Cecilia after the ice storm in January.
While I didn’t attend all the events at Homecoming, I got to experience a little slice of it.
On Friday of Homecoming weekend, my sister and I attended Sibling Bingo! My sister is so cool and always down for a good time. When she was in college, she was very involved. I was never as outgoing as she was, but I feel like when she comes to Fontbonne, she gets to see a whole other side of me. I love sharing my Fontbonne experience with her and introducing her to different people from the community, including my rad friends and professors.
I told my sister on our way to bingo that we had one mission, and one mission only: WIN. Of course, everyone at our table (including my skilled sibling) got a bingo, some more than once, except for me. It was still such a fun time and I’m so glad I went.

Now that I’m in a student org, I also got to witness Fall Festival in all it’s glory! On Saturday, I teamed up with President of Students for Life, Sarah, and set up a table along with our other esteemed SFL members. We handed out Fitz’s (a major hit, no surprise) and homemade Peanut Butter Trail Mix Puppy Chow (it was delicious, if I do say so myself). Needless to say, I think it was a success!
I would highly recommend going to Homecoming. Even if you’re busy, consider taking out a little time to have fun. You won’t regret it.
Freshman year. Unknown teachers, book fees, roommate issues, and more. Have you ever written a paper and felt like you got an A but your instructor thought otherwise? This has happened to me plenty of times. The worst part is that the instructor won’t even let you redo the paper even after your countless hours of hard work. To top that off, you’re broke with no money in the bank. You’ve applied to a countless number of jobs but no one will hire you because you’ve never had a job before. Pretty soon you are ready to just give up! Next thing you know, your phone rings. “Hello is this Britney?” “Yes” I say. “Are you still interested in the job position?”… Aha, life has just began. 🙂
