Lucy… I’m Home!

Here I am, exiting off highway 40, listening to Latch by Sam Smith. It wasn’t until I passed the legendary corner Walgreens that it hit me that I was headed to Fontbonne University. How did this summer baby (who loves school but also appreciates the ever-so-glorious three-month break) find her way back onto a college campus? Granted it was for a quick stop at one of my favorite libraries, but still I wondered ‘Wow, I have somehow managed to end up back here!’ I chuckled at what I though was just a passing thought.

As soon as I stepped out of my car, I realized I was wrong. I happily began to take in the calming scene of my campus. I felt my heart warm as I began to smile. I believe that is the true feeling of joy, when you can smile at nothing in paticular. It was a mix of both excitement and comfort, as if I had just stepped into my home after a long trip. It was then that I realized how much I truly love Fontbonne University.

Whenever I amĀ here I know I am surrounded by genuine people who truly value education. They not only embrace every student, but they also act as living examples of how hard work leads to success. Popular writer Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr said “Where we love is home- home that our feet may leave but not our hearts.” I left Fontbonne that day not only thankful for another two weeks of summer vacation (Fun and Rest — Yayy!), but also eager. I was eager to returnĀ back to Fontbonne, a place where my heart feels at home!

I think we can all agree that this semester has flown by quickly. I feel school just started a few weeks ago but we only have two months left of the fall semester. I took it easy this semester because I am at a new school and I wanted to get the hang of things before I overload with school. Part of me wants this to end, but then another part of me wants it to keep going. I love my classes I am taking, and all the new friends I have made are awesome! It makes me sad that some of them are seniors this year and they are leaving me. I wish them the best of luck and hope we will stay in touch. Even though this semester is great, I am looking forward to next semester. The classes that I want to take seem like they are going to be fun and interesting. I am hoping to also make more new friends. Until next time Griffins!
