Farewell for now…

by Anna on April 26, 2017

in College Life

Hi everyone,

I don’t really feel like I need to give a recap of my semester.  I’ve been throwing tidbits in my blogs throughout the past few months, so I’m sure you know what a different semester I’ve had than the fall 2016 semester (and if not, you can just scroll back through my previous blogs right now!).  For all of the stressful and not-so-great moments, however, I feel I have also grown tremendously as a person.  I know, I know, I said that at the end of last semester, and I’ll probably say this after every semester in the future.  But in a way, I believe that’s part of college — you’re not only expanding your knowledge base and preparing for your future, but you’re also maturing and growing in other areas than education.

I’ve gotten to know a lot more students this semester, particularly fellow dietetics students, because we shared several classes together.  I got to experience my first Fontbonne Day of service, which was inspiring and rewarding on so many levels.  From a mental and psychological perspective, I was pushed and challenged to do so many things that at the beginning of the semester, I thought were completely impossible.  I look back at the post-fall-2016 semester me, or the early-spring-2017 semester me, and I laugh at my naivety. I’ve become more self-confident and responsible.  I’ve juggled 18 hours of classes, my beloved house/pet/babysitting (I really do enjoy my work…it’s so fulfilling), commuting, and everything else that goes along with daily life — and I’m emerging from it sleep-deprived and somewhat emotionally exhausted, but still alive and ready for the future challenges that will inevitably crop up!

I’m ready to tackle finals and put this semester behind me.  I’m ready to take some summer gen-ed classes.  I’m ready to go to the Extreme Mustang Makeover in July in Kentucky and reconnect with my favorite horse people.  I’m ready to have time with my horses, Blondie and Pearl.  I’m ready to go on our amazing two-week family vacation in August to the East coast.  And then I’ll be ready for the fall 2017 semester, full of new classes, new professors, and new challenges, but also full of new memories and new knowledge to add to my ever-expanding base.

Have a WONDERFUL summer, Griffins!

~Anna

Easter

by Patricia on April 20, 2017

in Faith

I had a good Easter. I went home on Thursday and we did our annual tradition of going to Sonic. I got a berry brownie master blast which is a concrete with strawberries, brownies, and waffle cone pieces. I got a medium and it was so filling. I had planned to exercise after, but I knew I would make myself sick. So I didn’t do it. On Saturday I decorated Easter eggs and made a bunny house out of sugar cookies! I found the recipe on food network and copied it exactly. They gave you the measurements for each wall and I traced it on a piece of paper. I then cut out the pieces on the cookie dough and baked them. I decorated it with icing, M&Ms, and marshmallows. I also had plastic bunnies! I posted it on Facebook and got a lot of reactions. It took 2 hours to decorate.

On Easter day we had a scavenger hunt. We had to find clues all over the house and we found gifts along the way. The end of the hunt led to our Easter baskets, which was filled with candy. Throughout the day we watched Star Wars. For dinner, we had lamb, like we always do. For dessert we had mango and raspberry frozen yogurt.

Spring Break 2K17

by Morgan on March 16, 2017

in Uncategorized

Hey everyone!!

Welcome back to my blog for another week! This week we are talking about SPRING BREAK!!! I don’t know about you guys, but I am more than excited for this week off of school… Now I know a week is not nearly as long or as great as Winter Break, but it’s a nice break from everything that’s a little past the halfway point of the semester.

Now for my Spring Break: I’m not doing anything exciting… I live in O’Fallon, MO, so I get to drive about 30 minutes to my house. Let me tell you, I plan on sleeping a majority of this break. At school, it’s just so busy with everything that I’m involved in and then the homework, there’s not nearly as much free time to sleep as I would like.

But when I’m at home, I also plan on going back to work at my old stomping grounds of Baskin Robbins!!! I’m super excited that I am able to pick up a couple of shifts while I’m at home because I will definitely need to make back some of the money that I missed out on. The school that I work at has their Spring Break this current week (3/13-3/17), so I wasn’t able to work my usual shifts there…and then we have our Spring Break at Fontbonne the week right after them (3/20-3/24), so that’s two full weeks without money and without seeing my favorite kids everyday!! I am going to be going through withdrawals soon! 😭

I also plan on hanging out with my family (obviously since I’ll be at home) while we’re on break because I don’t have the opportunity to go home that often… Since I don’t go home that much my family always gives me trouble about always being at school, so they’ll have to deal with me for a full week.. They’ll probably take back everything they said about wanting me at home! 😉

Well, guys thanks for reading again, and check back in next week for some more to read from me!!

peace out,

Morgan

Hi again everyone! This week I am writing to you guys what I am passionate about! It’s easier if I just list it off to you:

  1. music: I LOVE MUSIC. I can’t tell you when there’s really a time where I’m not listening to music…okay maybe while I’m sleeping or in class, but that’s about it. I love listening. I love singing. I love dancing as well. I just can’t imagine my life without music.
  2. friends: Here comes the sappy part: I can’t imagine my life without my friends either. They are my world, my everything, and they inspire me everyday. I love each and every one of them, and my life has gotten better because of them.
  3. food: Food makes me happier than quite a few things, not my friends or my family, but definitely happier than 8 am classes. Snacking is typically a part of my everyday routine, and typically when I’m bored, I order a pizza or find a snack in my room!
  4. family: Family is what has gotten me where I am today. Without my family, I would not be as successful as I would like to claim to be. I try to keep in contact with a lot of my family while I’m away at school because I don’t think I would be sane without hearing my mom’s voice everyday.
  5. Buzzfeed quizzes: Now here’s one you might question my passion for, but I swear to you that Buzzfeed quizzes are a large part of my life. Every time I scroll past a quiz on any form of timeline on social media, I have to take it. It’s like an a temptation of mine. I cannot scroll past a quiz and not take it, no matter how stupid. If it was a quiz where I learn what type of bread I am, you know I already took that quiz!

Thanks guys for learning about what I’m passionate about! 🙈

peace out,

Morgan

End of the Semester!

by Anna December 1, 2016

It seems crazy to think that just three-and-a-half months ago, I was starting my college journey.  Now, it’s almost 1/8 done!  Whoa…that’s a little scary to think about!  If this semester went by quickly, just imagine the remaining seven; before I know it, Fontbonne will be a memory and I’ll be entering yet another new […]

Happy Halloween Fonties!!

by Claire October 28, 2016

Halloween is right around the corner and the spooky spirit is all over campus. From the painted pumpkins to the falling leaves, it feels just like Halloween around campus. Some of my favorite Halloween activities involve carving pumpkins and baking pumpkin seeds. Ever since I can remember, my family and I have all gone to a […]

Fall Break Fun

by Anna October 6, 2016

Fall break is just a few days away, which means we are halfway through the semester!  Wow!  That doesn’t seem possible.  As much as I enjoy coming to campus for classes each day, breaks are also really nice because they give everyone a chance to breathe, regroup, maybe enjoy some free time with family or […]

Homecoming Week

by Claire September 16, 2016

Homecoming is a special time in both high school and college. However, the two are extremely different and students experience the two completely differently as well. Homecoming in high school involved lots of prep for a pep rally, last minute running around and trying to memorize cheer routines, football plays, chants, and school spirit permeates. […]

Returning to Fontbonne
