Oct 20 is the annual celebration for The National Day on Writing.
The Kinkel Center at Fontbonne had a fun event for celebrating the National Day on Writing, and also encouraged students to write more.
I joined this event in our library last Thursday, Oct 18.
In this event, the Kinkel Center invited students to write a story that began “It was a dark and stormy night on the Fontbonne campus…”. Every student added a sentence to make the story become scarier.
Before I added a sentence to the story, somebody wrote “The wind whistled eerily between the buildings and dry leaves blew across the sidewalk.” So, I just added a sentence “Then, some scary voice was coming out from the tree.” Haha, I don’t like scary stories, but it was so much fun to play this game.
I love reading and writing, because they are the most important tools to increase my knowledge and improve my English. Beginning to see myself as a writer and reader was a crucial step on my journey in learning English. I like to explore the world of America by reading, and share what I learned by writing. It’s hard to keep writing and reading in English, but it’s worth it to do it.
Fontbonne is perfect for me because it is a small, friendly campus. I have attended Catholic schools my whole life, and I figured that attending a Catholic college would be a great way to continue my education. The grade school and high school that I attended were both very small, so I knew that going to a big school like SLU would be very intimidating, and it would make me nervous. I felt right at home when I toured Fontbonne though, and it made me really excited to begin my college journey. I also love the fact that Fontbonne is extremely commuter friendly. Since I live about an hour away, I have to try to plan a schedule that fits my commuting lifestyle. Fontbonne has flexible hours that allow me to have no early morning classes or classes on Fridays! Also, I love the people at Fontbonne, and I do not regret choosing Fontbonne as my college (or not even applying to anywhere else… not recommended). I wish everyone luck on their college journey, whether you are in school or deciding where you want to go. Let your heart lead you, and you will make the decision that is best for you!
