Over the weekend I celebrated my 23rd birthday in Colorado. I visited my boyfriend and his family and had so much fun. We went to Dave n’ Busters, went up the mountain, had a few dates, and ate yummy cake. Of course, my favorite part of the weekend was being able to spend time with my boyfriend, that was the greatest gift of all. He also got me a Pandora charm bracelet, which I have been wanting for a long time. We had my birthday dinner at Olive Garden in Fort Collins, CO and I opened it up and started crying. It was so cute and unexpected.
The night before my birthday we went to the Dave n’ Busters in Denver. I have only been to the one in Illinois. The Denver one is so much nicer, even classy. It must have been a lucky night for me, because on one machine, I won over 500 tickets. At the end of the night we ended up with 976 tickets. I got a cup with a crazy straw and a shot glass.
I just got back to STL from spending some weeks back home in Illinois. Which was my last. Illinois will no longer be my physical home come July. My parents will be living in Florida, and I will still be in STL. Its a scary thing. I have to make a decision where I am going to go after the fall semester since I will be graduated. I decided to move to Colorado after graduation. To start a new chapter of my life with my boyfriend. Finally ending the long distance. It will be great to be a normal couple. While I was home, he came to visit! Which was awesome and amazing. I loved it. We saw a lot of movies; Godzilla, X-Men, and Captain America 2. Also, exploring the Chicagoland area. Illinois will always be my state, and Chicago will always be my city.
This summer is going to be off the hook! I have so many things planned.
May: Help with graduation, bridal shower, and go home for about two weeks!
June: Summer school (not that exciting)
July: Still summer school, a week in Mexico, Warped Tour, Mayhem fest, and Colorado
August: Still in Colorado, and then MY LAST SEMESTER OF COLLEGE.
I also plan on going to Six Flags and hanging out with my friends since I will be here in St. Louis majority of the summer! Im super excited!
The question that always comes up to kids is that, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I didn’t have an answer until Fontbonne. As a kid I would say, “I want to work at Taco Bell!” Thanks to my dad, I love taco bell. Obviously, as I grew up I realized that Taco Bell wasn’t a good future. My career goal is to create ads. I know when I start out it will be small, but I hope to work my way up the tree.
After graduation, my goal is to not live with my parents in Illinois anymore and to move to Colorado. I want to start my new life somewhere else. I feel Illinois doesn’t have much to offer me anymore. My future is in Colorado and maybe at some point branch off to California.
Fontbonne will help me achieve this goal in multiple ways. I feel out of all the schools I have looked at, Fontbonne is the only one that would help me get hands on experience in my field before I even graduate. Ill have an idea what to expect before hand and that will benefit me.
Until next time Griffins!
