Manic Monday

by Alumni Posts October 8, 2013

What’s your favorite day of the week? Friday, because it’s the start of the weekend? Sunday, because it’s a day of rest and relaxation? Maybe Saturday, because it’s right in the middle. Whatever day is your favorite, I’d bet my bottom dollar that it’s not Monday. Monday gets a pretty bad rep – it’s the […]

It’s Getting Colder…

by Kristen October 7, 2013

By the end of the summer, I’m always ready for fall to come, bringing an end to sweltering temperatures.  I love to wear boots, scarves, jackets and sweaters.  Layers are so easy to play around with for making new outfit combinations—and they’re perfect for transitioning between medium outdoor temperatures and sub-zero classroom temperatures.   So I […]

Carry On, Wayward Son

by Alumni Posts July 8, 2013

Well, I must admit this post isn’t very St. Louis centered, but it does highlight another pretty cool place in Missouri – Kansas City! It’s about 5-6 hours away by train, and has some pretty cool stuff. I especially liked the farmer’s market – it’s huge! Bigger than Soulard! – and the raw/vegan/organic restaurant that I […]

Hippie Food

by Alumni Posts March 26, 2013

Have I mentioned my favorite restaurant ever in the whole entire world is right here in St. Louis? I haven’t? Well, consider it mentioned. PuraVegan is indeed my favorite restaurant ever, and if you know me at all you won’t be surprised that they serve mostly raw, 100% vegan, über-healthy food. But before you stop […]

My First Snowman

by Penny March 4, 2013

Snow, Snow, and Snow—this weather is not only for St. Louis, but also for most of the states in the middle part of the United States. Last Thursday, we got a serious snow, the depth of the snow reached my knees, and I couldn’t walk easily even though I wore snow boots. It looks so […]

The following four parts are the interesting activities to me: […]

Hi All!!

by Alumni Posts September 11, 2012

Hi all! I am new to the Fontbonne University blogging community so an introduction is only appropriate. My name is Kelia, pronounced “Kayla.” A lot of people, teachers included, know me as “Kayla,” but freak out when they see my name on paper. So don’t worry if when you read my name on paper you […]
