Beginning my Easter break a little early last week, I went to a concert of one of my favorite performers, Gavin Degraw. Surprisingly, he didn’t make a stop in St. Louis on the current tour, but he did visit the town of Effingham, Illinois. Most people have probably never heard of the town, but being from Southern Illinois I knew right where it was at. A couple hours drive from St. Louis, I made my way there Wednesday after interning, class, and a meeting.
I was joining my concert buddy Jessi for the night. We always to to concerts together, especially Gavin Degraw’s. It was great to see her, eat some good food and catch up at the local pub, and then dance to the music all night long. Rozzi Crane, Parachute, and Gavin were performing that night. Jessi and I had great seats, but we rushed to the stage during the second band’s performance. Being so close to the stage for amazing performances was the only way to spend that night. I even ran into a friend from high school. All in all, it was a successfully fun evening, and a great way to kick off Easter break!
Last weekend was Easter break, it was a good time for students because they got a one week break, and it was also a good time to think about how Jesus Christ died for us on the cross, then he was risen.
It was my first Easter here, and I joined the traditional Good Friday service and Easter Sunday service at Grace Church, St. Louis. I spent many times to think about Jesus’s death on Good Friday, and prayed with God. I like to spend time praying and studying the bible, which can let me be renewed by God.
Here is one of verses for celebrating the Easter Day. Take time to think about it:
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)
Spring Break and now Easter break? It feels like summer to this former Catholic School girl. All through high school, I had no spring break and no Easter break. We were always given Holy days off leading up to Easter, and we also had Easter Monday off. Having all of these breaks so close together are making me slightly lazy. It is time to snap out of it! I have still have about a month of school left, and that means a month of hard work and concentration. I think the library and I will soon become friends. I am happy to say that I have almost survived my first year of college. Surviving is half the battle! With that I will leave you with my favorite summer song! Enjoy
I feel like this year has gone by so fast. It feels weird looking out my window and seeing leaves on the trees and people out enjoying the weather. It feels like just yesterday it was Christmas break! And look, here we are getting ready to register for class for next year. I can’t believe how fast this semester is going. I almost wish I could freeze time for just a little while because I’m afraid I’m going to miss something.
I’m so excited though for the dedicated semester next fall: Foodology. I’m a psychology major and plan to specialize in health and wellness. Food has always been something I enjoy not only eating but learning about. Nutrition is just something that has always been interesting to me. I’m looking forward to taking some of the dedicated semester courses that are being offered next year, and I encourage everyone to do the same! Happy spring, everyone, and I hope you all have a wonderful Easter break.
Easter Break is just around the corner! Everybody is all excited to go home and see family and rest. Not I. Fontbonne’s Track and Field team has a meet that we’ll be running at on the upcoming Saturday. So while everybody is chillin’, relaxin’, actin’ all cool; I’ll be pulling harrier duty (Old-school term for […]
It’s so weird to think that we just had our spring break a mere few weeks ago. Even so, I think I can speak for almost everyone when I say that Easter break will be another much-needed break. Despite the fact that I have loads of homework to complete and multiple tests to study for […]
Woohoo!!!! It’s almost Easter, and I am ready for it! I don’t know why, but this semester has been brutal for all parties involved. The few days of classes from which I will be free (which is really only one) will probably be devoted to homework. Don’t get me wrong, I will be spending time […]
Easter 2009 A perfect time to sit and reflect: No motherland ever sought this height? Our countryside lost, and gained respect And set the “future lens” to a new sight. Count back, look ahead 1970 for Familiar history will ease her, Come together, celebrate, cooperate, achieve “Excuse me,” “thank you,” “please sir.” Forgotten have we […]
When I was younger, my family would go to my grandparents’ house, where we met my aunts and uncles and all my cousins. My mom is one of nine kids, so it was always crowded and noisy and FUN. Everyone brought different dishes, usually bakery goods, and we stuffed ourselves on Easter goodies. My grandparents […]
My Easter Plans are very boring. But, I do plan to take over the world with everyone at Fontbonne. Other than trying to rule the world, I plan on sitting back and relaxing. I am going to the final Blues hockey game at home, and if everything goes well, they will go to the playoffs! […]
