Fontbonne is Special

I chose this image because this is a picture of me and two of my friends at Fontbonne University. As you can see they aren’t the same color as me but that didn’t matter to us. We were having a great time at a Fontbonne party just mingling and talking with everyone. We had a blast that night and that is a night I will never forget. We took photos, danced, talked to friends, and listened to music. There were a lot of adventures that night. I was making freestyle raps that did not make any sense and trying to get people to stay and party longer. That night no one saw color, we just saw a good time at Fontbonne. This is what makes Fontbonne special.


A beautiful weekend in the Lou.
The weather was perfect and there was plenty to do!
My friends and I walked to the Balloon Glow,
We even saw a magnificent firework show!
On Saturday, we saw dancers in the street,
Boy! How they could move their feet!
At night, I attended the Buddhist Mid-Autumn Fest,
In Lion costume some were dressed!
Sunday I slept in until eleven,
My! It was just like heaven!
Studied at the coffee shoppe,
Even made a little stop…
At a beautiful ballerina water fountain,
My friends and I climbed on it like a mountain!
Now, of course, I am back at school,
But I hope this week is just as cool!

This is what Fontbonne looked like on our SNOW DAY!!



Hello Everyone,

So this week I just wanted to point out how bipolar St. Louis weather is. Just the other day, it was pouring down rain and in the high 30s. NOW, it is 80 degrees, windy, sunny, humid, and everything else that comes with spring. The problem is… it ISN’T spring!!! By the time most of you read this it will most likely be thunder storming or a blizzard will be happening. Who knows!!! The point is, when you come to St. Louis, be prepared for anything. I, personally, do not bother separating my clothes for the seasons because St. Louis can have all four in one day! Don’t worry, though, it is not as bad as you think. You just keep moving forward without a care in the world. What is the craziest weather you’ve had in your life? It can be as tragic as a tornado or as beautiful as a spring day in the middle of winter. The worst weather I have been through was during a float trip on the Meramec. I was probably 9 or 10 and we decided to do the 10 mile float instead of the 6. Much to our regret, not even halfway through, the BIGGEST thunder storm fell right on top of us. It seemed like it came out of nowhere! The water was turning us every which way, I was freezing, and it took all of us to get to the check point and back to camp. I love thunder storms as much as the next person, but I didn’t want to be floating in one! On a brighter note, probably the best weather would be today. Everyone at Fontbonne takes advantage of the incredible weather. You can find a huge gathering in the meadow of people playing soccer, lacrosse, football, Frisbee, or just sitting around on the patio. Fontbonne’s atmosphere was a mixture of elation and anxiety for spring break to start. Luckily that is the end of this week! So enjoy the weather while you can and be prepared for the least expected! That weather app isn’t always right!!!



It’s Just Around the Corner…

Okay, don’t hate me for this, but I’m about to do a reallllll quick plug for Christmas here. I KNOW, I KNOW, IT’S NOT EVEN THANKSGIVING YET. Trust me, I’m aware, and I am super duper pumped for T-day and I’m not trying to delegitimize it at all. Now. That being said, Christmas is just […]

Spending Money

by Alumni Posts November 11, 2011

I am a poor college kid, just like every other college kid in this world. However, I am an exception. I am a jobless and poor college kid. My parents and I had decided before I left for Fontbonne that I would take a leave from my job, and only work on breaks. This was […]

Choosing Fontbonne

by Alumni Posts November 7, 2011

The college picking process was quite bizarre for me. I had it in my mind that I could know what college I wanted to go to by the time I was a freshman in high school. I was the kind of the person that liked to have everything planned out. That is not how it […]

Crunch Time

by Alumni Posts November 7, 2011

Crunch Time I know we’ve all felt like the we were are being crunched under time’s remarkably clever clock. This week has been crazy hectic for me. Maybe it has been all the trick or treat candy that my kiddos collected on Monday that I have ingested or maybe it is my inability to focus […]

Number Crunching and The Real World

by Alumni Posts February 7, 2011

May 21, 2011 is a date that looms over my head every hour of every day of this spring semester. It is only  53 school days and roughly 120 hours of class away from this exact moment. That is it: the day of my graduation from Fontbonne University. I know that most of my peers […]
