December Baby

by Conner on December 16, 2013

in In Saint Louis

Well, that’s it. The Fall Semester is officially over. I had a few difficult finals and a rough week (39 hour all-nighter included), but what’s done is done. Now it’s time to celebrate!

The month of December is one that is celebratory for everyone every year, but for myself especially. December brings winter break, Christmas, holiday festivities, my birthday, and my roommate’s birthday! What more fun could a girl ask for? This year both my roommate and I are turning the big 2-1, and are having a joint birthday celebration to celebrate. We’re going all out with invitations, a cake, and an “End of Prohibition” theme.

With the celebration of winter break is the art of relaxation, or a little more sleep and a little less stress. I’m hoping to have some quality “me” time before the spring semester begins. I plan on getting a pedicure, shopping, going to the zoo, and seeing Christmas lights. I’m spending most of winter break at school working, so it will be my first official December in St. Louis. I can’t wait to see what’s in store!

Thanks for reading..

Studying for Finals

by Erika on December 10, 2013

in Academics

With finals underway, it is crucial to study hard and finish the last minute assignments before the semester ends.  One of the keys to success when it comes to getting a good grade on a final is studying.  At Fontbonne, there are many places to study.  There is the DSAC café, AMC, library, as well as your own dorm room.  I have a couple spots that I like to study.  The majority of the time I enjoy studying in my room because I am able to block outside noise.  However, I have started studying at the bottom of Medaille in the AMC.  There are cubicles with computers.  I like doing my studying here because I am blocked from distractions.  It is much quieter place to study and I get more of my studying done at faster pace.  I am not distracted by outside noise or any materialistic things. In the cubicles, I am able to zone out and focus directly on homework.   I put my headphones on and I am able to get my studying done in a more efficient way than I would other places.

Snow!

by Jennie on December 9, 2013

in College Life,Extracurricular

I loved snow as a kid! Every year the first snow was the greatest thing to happen. I’d go running outside in whatever clothes I had on and catch snowflakes in my mouth and just watch all the snowflakes falling. It was the best. Surprisingly, the first snow of my college career was just as exciting. After studying for two hours straight as soon as I heard my floor mates say “It’s snowing!” I was out of my room with my boots on ready to go outside. We all ran down the stairs, threw the door open and went running out into the snow. We were like little kids running everywhere and catching snowflakes in our mouths. It was the perfect study break. Playing in the snow brings the kid out of anybody. I do not think I can move anywhere where there is no snow. Snow it beautiful!

Thanksgiving and Finals Week are coming!

by Penny November 25, 2013

The thanksgiving break is coming, but that also means that our finals week is coming. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays in the United States, because it means family gathering. It’s like the Lunar Chinese New Year in Taiwan. However, it’s sad that the final week of the semester is coming as well. Therefore, [...]
