Going to college in St. Louis, you should be well aware that the weather changes quite frequently! The past couple of days the weather has been fairly bipolar. This weekend was absolutely gorgeous outside! I loved driving with my windows rolled down, and my music blaring, and being able to wear my shorts again! It was a nice break from the fall temperatures. But within the matter of hours it went from sunny and hot to raining and freezing! Then today, it was a shocking cold! I wore my Bear Paws (Knock off Uggs) yoga pants, a hoodie, and a scarf! It was too cold! If you choose any school in Missouri, be prepared for any season’s weather, not during it’s own season! Don’t be afraid of this either, cause it allows you to mix up your outfits a lot more frequently! You can have clear, blue skies one day, and snow the next and I wouldn’t change it for a thing! I love St. Louis’ bipolar weather!
I’ve got another busy week ahead of me, which is the way I like it. Especially when the week is spent doing things I want and choose to do.
Wednesday night, FAB (Fontbonne Activities Board) is hosting a free event at Wild Country. So, I will be line-dancing the night away in my cowgirl boots!
Thursday night there is going to be a “Meet and Mingle” event at Fontbonne. Professionals that work in the fashion industry will be here to talk about their careers and open to any questions that students may have. Although this may not seem very fun, I am looking forward to it. I am hoping to learn about more internship opportunities. Plus, it’ll be a great event for networking.
Friday and Saturday I will be working. But that’s okay, because after I get off Saturday, it will be movie night in the meadow! As part of my internship, I will be helping set up for the event. This will be the fourth time this semester that Fontbonne has played a movie outside on the giant projector. So far, we’ve watched The Hunger Games, The Avengers, and 21 Jump Street. The title for this Saturday is yet to be announced. Students had the chance to vote this time. Some of the choices were Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Little Rascals, Goonies, Lion King, Fever Pitch, etc. I would like any of them, but Monsters Inc. won my vote. I LOVE Disney Pixar films. And, the Monsters Inc. sequel is coming out June 2013, so I’m already getting pumped for that!
Have a great week. It’s important to work hard, but don’t forget to play every once and awhile too!
The past few days have felt like heaven outside. The colder temperatures and rainy days make me so excited for fall. Although it is still technically summer until September 21, I’m already in autumn mode. There are just so many awesome things to do during fall, like apple picking, bonfires, carving pumpkins and of course, haunted houses around Halloween. And don’t get me starts on all the awesome food you can really only make when it’s colder outside, like hot chocolate, soups, and pumpkin pies.
I work at St. Louis Bread Company, and we just started selling our new fall items like the pumpkin cookies and new turkey and cranberry panini, Sonoma chicken stew and turkey harvest salad. And, my personal favorite, the pumpkin spice latte! (Which is awesome by the way, and you should try it). Oh my gosh, I fell like such a little kid. I’ll just be standing in the bakery looking at all the wonderful fall treats, and I’m doing all I can to keep myself from jumping up and down with excitement. I just want to put on my rain boots and go skipping through the pumpkin patch. (okay maybe that’s going a little too far. Ha Ha) But in all seriousness, the season change makes me super happy and excited. And with all the fun activities on campus with the dedicated semester, this year started out great.
