Fall Fest

I had a good time at the RHA table at Fall Fest. It was a cold night, but it was fun to see everyone celebrating the fall. RHA had a table for decorating cookies. It was a good turn out at the table. It was nice that the cards game was on. I remember last year it was inside, but beng outside was a nice change. There was some pumpkin tables, bowling, a costume table and a few others. There also was two fire pits going so we can all warm up.

Hello Fontbonne :)

Today is such a beautiful day! Everyone’s having an awesome time, yes? You better be.

I also believe we all know that SGA (Student Government Association) is sponsoring the Fall Festival TONIGHT in the AMC at 7:00PM. Many organizations will be participating with their very own activities. I, personally, will be with FISA (Fontbonne International Students Alliance) and FISH (Fontbonne in Service and Humility). FISA will have origami and a little scavenger hunt, as FISH will have pumpkin carving and advertising about their big service trips, coming up for next semester. Please come and have fun!

Now I would like to just recap on the interesting things that I did this week. Sunday: A few members from FISH–along with my twin sister, Mary, as a guest–went to The Bridge (a Centenary Methodist Church in downtown) to help serve food! It was pretty fun, and the chefs were awesome. There were three of them, and I think two of them are Alan and one is Steve. Anyways, our members who went were Andrea, Rayne, and Erica. Rayne started the plate with the macaroni pasta (hamburger style), I pass it to Andrea for bread, Erica served salad, and Mary finished it with a slice of cake. Sounds oh-so delicious! After we were finished with serving, Steve said we could eat, too. And yes, I loved the food. :)

Let’s rewind real quick. We did have a small inconvenience before going to the church. Andrea and Rayne already arrived to the place while Erica, Mary, and I had to park in a $5 spot. Unexpectedly, when Erica was paying for it, we were all out of the car and it was still on–with the keys locked inside. A little unfortunate, right? Man, we had a good laugh about that. So I told Andrea and Rayne about it and said that we will come later. Luckily, Erica’s boyfriend, Shay, was able to get her spare key from her dorm room! How awesome is that? :) While we waited, we just talked about all kinds of things, getting to know each other. It wasn’t such a bad experience! Everything turned out okay.

Monday: SAA (Student Alumni Association) had the Brown Bag Lunch with an alumni, Tony Effan. Basically, Tony talked to us about his experiences with Fontbonne and how he got to where he is now as a Wells Fargo Advisor. Pretty neat stuff. I highly recommend students to join SAA because you do get the chance to learn more about career development and about the things you can do to get better jobs.

Tuesday: Gaming2Gether’s Bingo Night! I was supposed to be there for volunteering, but they were pretty set so I just played. :D It was really fun! Bingo never gets old. I actually won one game, so I definitely benefited from that night.

Wednesday: No special event for me, but I did go to the Delmar Loop with my awesome buddies, Izzy and Ben. :) We went to Blick Art Materials to buy awesome origami papers for our fall festival activity. Then we decided to stop by Bubble Tea (my favorite!) to eat. Ben kindly paid for our drinks, then Izzy and I paid for our own meals. Sadly, I didn’t really get to eat most of my wonton noodle soup because I ate one piece of the “spicey” crispy chicken that Ben ordered. Why is that bad? Well, I’m pretty sensitive to spicey now, so I can’t eat any form of spiceyness anymore. That also keeps me from eating hot food because it hurts even more. I had my food to-go, so I was able to eat it later.

That’s all for now! Oh, I’m starting my own fundraiser for Dance Marathon by polishing and designing people’s nails: 2 designs for $2, 10 designs for $5. All of the funds will go towards the marathon, so don’t worry! If you would your nails done, just let me know!

Have an AWESOME day!

Is it really the last full week of October? I cannot believe how fast this first semester is flying by! It seems that each week is busier than the last. Before I know it it’ll be Thanksgiving. But that’s still a few weeks away, and I focus on the present.

This week is an exciting one for me. Today I almost completed my skirt I’m making for a fashion merchandising class (yes, the one I sewed wrong sides together and did every other possible thing wrong to last week). I can’t wait for Monday so that I can finish. The skirt is made of  maroon colored wool, high waisted, with an asymmetrical hemline and a leather waistband. Perhaps I will wear it on the fast approaching Thanksgiving.

Tomorrow I will be seeing Les Miserables at the Fox! I have never seen this opera, let alone any, and am anxious to see it. I love going to see musicals at the Fox. I am able to go because my Music Appreciation course is required to critique it, so I got a really good deal on tickets. I will be going with my roommate/best friend, and we’re making a whole day of it, beginning with a tour in the morning, lunch, and the show in the afternoon.

After the show I will have Griffin Girls practice, which is going really well. I love that I am able to dance again, and the entire team works really hard to do their best. We have already finished two routines and are beginning the third this weekend. Our first performance is November 2nd at Griffinsanity. Come check us out!

The Fall Fest is tomorrow evening, so maybe after dance I will stop by to check out what the Fontbonne clubs and organizations have going on at this point in the semester. I know students can make masks for the masquerade ball this weekend, and try to put together the best Halloween costume for a prize. With so many things to do and see this week, I wonder what next week will bring? I’m hoping for some actual fall-related weather!

Until next week…
