As you all know, we are approaching our last day of fall break. I don’t know about you all, but it’s been an insanely busy semester, so I didn’t realize it was even fall break until pretty much the day it started. Needless to say, I did not make any real plans, but I think that’s okay. Usually, every minute of my day is pretty mapped out, and I like to stay as busy as possible. But lately I’ve been feeling burnt out, and definitely have a mild case of senioritis. I think the main reason is because I like to go 100 mph, especially during the school year when I have work, school, and family obligations to keep my mind and day occupied. I don’t “chill” that often, so I decided to use most of this break for what it is: a break. So not only did I not make any plans, but I have just let each day come as it will, and have to say I am feeling a little recharged, and ready to tackle the week ahead! Sometimes having nothing to do is really a good thing.
Hope you all had a very fun, and very restful fall break too!
Autumn. That time of year when everything starts to change. Leaves go from Green to a Brown or even an Orange hue & when you start hearing leaf blowers in the distance. Even the coffee starts to change! They go from Frappuccinos & Iced Coffees to freshly brewed hot cups of coffee (which sound really good right about now)! Seattle, WA (where Starbucks is Head Quartered) makes coffee look VERY appetizing! Just look at that presentation! And the weather: well, it’s right in the neutral zone! Not too humid & warm/not too cold (yet). Autumn as a season is just beautiful! As for me, even though we are on Fall Break right now, mentally & physically, I am not on break. I am currently getting a head start on future assignments, planning out Board Meeting Agendas for the next several months, filling out Organizational Financial Reports and doing everything else in between. Until next time guys, Stay Classy!
Fall is here, and everyone is freaking out.
I can’t believe that the leaves on the trees are already falling, everyone is rushing to get their Pumpkin Spice Lattes and breaking out their scarves and hats. I’ve always considered myself a bigger fan of winter, because of the snow (which is pretty unpopular around here, ask anyone on campus) but there is a reason why fall is the best: it just feels better.
Sure, spring is the time of renewal and summer means no classes. Winter is all about Christmas and less about snow nowadays, since St. Louis winter weather is fairly treacherous. But Fall is that great in-between season. My friends and I were longing for sweaters over the summer. There’s something about getting cozied up.
I’ve been reaping the benefits of fall by stationing myself outside the library under the trees on occasion, soaking up the fall breeze with my laptop perched on my legs as I attempt homework. Just being able to walk around or sit outside at a coffee shop is rejuvenating. As for the pumpkin-themed items, I’m less enthused. I do enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Frap though! (I tried it for the first time on air for the podcast).
I’m all here for comfy sweaters, hot beverages, and leisurely walks. Kudos, fall.
I hope you’re all having a not too stressful midterms week, but at least Fall Break is this weekend! I know that I am more than ready for this week to be over and to have a few days off to myself. I’m also really excited to see my family because this is the first time I’ll be doing so this entire semester! I live in O’Fallon, MO, which is about 30-40 minutes away from Fontbonne. So if I plan on coming back into St. Louis over Fall Break, at least it’s not too far of a drive!
One of my good friends is coming back home with me for Fall Break, so I’m excited for us to spend some down time together because whenever we hang out at school it’s always at all of these social events at school. We never have time to just hang out and chill because we are both so involved all around campus! There’s also a potential for us to actually drive out to Six Flags and go to FrightFest (which I’ve never been to before)… I’m not the best person to take to haunted houses or scary things like this, so we’ll see how this actually goes!!! 😅
Well that’s all I have for this week, so thanks again for reading! See you next time!
