I enjoy how I learn so many new things everyday just being here. For example, after living in St. Louis for 5 years, I’m still in awe of how much snow we’ve had. It’s already March and still, the flurries are being spooned on us as if someone up there is pouring flour into this bowl we call earth. What is the name of that groundhog that sees his shadow? I think we need a new animal if we’re getting six weeks more of winter.
I also learn that no matter how rough of a day you’ve had, someone will always cheer you up. Following my heavy schedule today, I was determined to stay mad and grouchy at how little time I had to relax. Yet my companions at dinner made me laugh so much I can’t help but laugh my guilt away now. My friend Sean is a master imitator and performed several renditions of Disney songs in the style of Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Johnny Cash. This was followed by some wonderful trips down memory lane of old, obscure TV shows that only a few know about, such as Flight of the Conchords. Just revisiting all their songs with Willian, and letting Yuri and Yara listen and laugh with us, helped my mood immensely.
In fact, being at Fontbonne has that effect. No matter where you go, how terrible or dark you feel, or how lethargically your life passes, someone will always come by like a ray of light and shine. It’s very refreshing. And you keep learning that laughter will always be a grand medicine.
January is over! I can’t believe it! This semester is going to go by so fast just because I have so much to do. This semester is the start to my senior year of college. I feel like I just graduated high school not that long ago. It has only been a month in and so many things has happened:
-I got an internship.
-I have been going to many concerts.
-I made new friends.
-I only have class two days a week!
My internship is with ‘Stache Media and they have interns all over the country promote musical artists. Which means I get to go to shows, for FREE. I just do reports and go out around STL to promote. SO MUCH FUN. This is something I have always wanted to do, but never knew how to get there. So far the concerts I have been to are: Lecrae/Derek Minor for Winter Jam, and Jeremy Messersmith. On Saturday I will be seeing a band called For Today. They will be playing at Fubar so go check them out! Like I said I have been making new friends and it has been people that I have seen before on campus. Just never really had a chance to be friends with them. I’m glad I am now though. They are such wonderful people. Now, I only have class two days a week. WHHHATTTT?! How does this happen. I was aiming for no Friday classes. Ill take no Monday, Wednesday or Friday classes. Though, I am at Fontbonne everyday working on homework, intern stuff or doing work study.
If you are interested in going to the show at Fubar to see For Today here is a link for more info:
Hopefully I will see you there!
It is the end of the first week back from winter break. Everyone is excited to see friends, have classes with friends, or just meet new people. These are my last spring semester classes. I have 2 classes with a friend. I finally have a class with my best friend and fellow blogger Corie. I also happy to find out that I have a new resident assistant (RA). My RA and I have a few things in common and we are kicking off a great friendship. I am looking forward to what this semester brings me.
