by Corie October 25, 2013

I am so ready for winter break like you would not believe. I have been stressed probably since week 4 or 5. Luckily I dedicate Thursday nights to go out with friends and unwind. Since I am not from St. Louis it is interesting to go to different places downtown. The experience is great and […]

Blue & Maize meet Purple & Gold

by Isabella October 18, 2013

One of the best things about being in a small school is that sense of welcoming warmth everyone experiences from finding supportive friends, no matter where you are from. Ultimately, they become your family. I was amazed at how easy it was to bring two of my “families” together. From my homeland, Justin is a […]

by Courtney June 26, 2013

Next week will be our nation’s 237th birthday. Today in America, it’s easy to get caught up in politics. We oftentimes look at the economy, the discrimination that is (very sadly) still present, and the number of people out of work and complain and gripe about our government and about how things are as compared […]

by Courtney June 15, 2013

Hello, dear readers! You may have realized that I’ve been on a blogging hiatus for almost two weeks. That’s because I was on vacation with my family in Orlando, Florida.

You’re Turning Into Something You Are Not.

by Carly June 3, 2013

I remember my very first day at Fontbonne. Well, okay, I remember the day I moved into the Joe. I remember the night before I moved in pretty clearly, too, along with the two days or so leading up to it. I remember being in high school and being so ready to move on. Gosh, […]

Family Time

Good afternoon! I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing weekend. One of my favorite things to do is spending time with family. During my childhood, my uncle was always taking all of us out for fun. What I mean by “us” is our group which includes me, my twin sister Mary, our brother Anthony, and […]

Good times, Bad times.

by Lizzie April 22, 2013

Good afternoon! I figured I should post a blog since I’ve been slacking off..I apologize for that! I hope everyone had a good weekend. If you ask me, I think it was in-between. First, everyone know Friday, April 12, was Fontbonne Service Day, right? Of course you do. And my accomplishment for that day was […]
