finals week

I cannot believe that my Freshman year is almost over. Let’s recap!

August: First day of school, the power was out. I thought we weren’t going to have class!
September: I… can’t remember… I guess that means it was good?
October: My birthday, and a friend dressed up as David Bowie from Labyrinth. It looked cool. Maybe next year I’ll dress up.
November: This was my first year voting… and that was when I lost all faith in the government.
December: I had never had such a long break for Christmas… we were practically gone for a month!
January: I guess it was good. We hardly got any snow… that made me a bit sad. The worse part was that we had plenty mild days! I can only imagine what the summer will be like…
February: I mentioned in my Black History Month blog that I don’t really celebrate it. Not because I’m a jerk, but because I celebrate the accomplishments of African Americans every day.
March: I did not have a fun Spring Break. Normally, my family would go to a different state for a trip, but instead we stayed home… and that’s when I started to fall behind on my projects.
April: I rushed to get my projects done, and they went surprisingly well, despite all the tears I shed over them. However, I was still swamped…

As of today, all my really hard stuff has been taken care of. Just a few art finals and one math one, nothing too complicated. I hope y’all enjoyed reading my blogs, and I hope I get to write next year. 😉

Farewell for now…

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!

Next week is Finals week. My Junior year so far has been filled with many highpoints and some low points. But overall, I would have to say that it was pretty successful! Academically, I am doing well; and organizationally I am excited to see what 2nd semester brings! We will be traveling to Chicago again for the 2017 Enactus Regional Conference and presenting our efforts with the Criminal Justice Ministry (CJM). Hopefully, we will advance to Kansas City for the 2017 National Conference! Even though I am practically half way done with my Junior year, I still cannot believe that I am HALF WAY done with JUNIOR year! It is crazy! Second semester will fly by!
As for what my plans are for Winter Break: Regain lost hours of sleep, visit family, & work on a project that is currently in development with a Fortune 500 company. I cannot disclose anything beyond that just yet.  Until next year guys, stay classy!

Well Griffins, it looks like we are finally here! It’s finals week, which means we are so very close to being done with the semester and ending another great year at Fonbonne. I can’t help but think about how fast my time at Fontbonne has flown by. I remember my parents dropping me off on my first day at freshman orientation 3 years ago and being so incredibly nervous, and now by the end of this week I’m going to be a senior. My time at Fontbonne so far has been filled with so many incredible memories and experiences, and I can’t help but think about how much I have grown and changed inside and out since I arrived here. I have met some amazing people, learned so much both in my classes and out, and have been exposed to so many wonderful things since I have been here, and as another semester comes to a close, I can’t help but low forward to and be excited for my final few semesters as a Griffin. I hope you all had a wonderful semester and year, and enjoy your summers!

See you later,
Taylor

How I Tackle Finals Week

by Lauren April 27, 2016

While I’m writing this post about Finals Week in particular (since it’s on the horizon) this generally applies to every week for me. Never in my life have I made so many to-do lists. To-do lists might be a bit cliche and I never used to make them–but I found a really cool way to […]

Scrambled Eggs

by Alumni Posts April 28, 2014

I went to Sam’s Club today and I bought a carton of delightful brown eggs. When I got back to my apartment, the first thing I did was make myself some scrambled eggs. Mmmm… they were really good. I follow Gordon Ramsay’s recipe for them; constantly stirring over medium heat with a little wedge of […]
