Spring Break 2K17

by Morgan on March 16, 2017

in Uncategorized

Hey everyone!!

Welcome back to my blog for another week! This week we are talking about SPRING BREAK!!! I don’t know about you guys, but I am more than excited for this week off of school… Now I know a week is not nearly as long or as great as Winter Break, but it’s a nice break from everything that’s a little past the halfway point of the semester.

Now for my Spring Break: I’m not doing anything exciting… I live in O’Fallon, MO, so I get to drive about 30 minutes to my house. Let me tell you, I plan on sleeping a majority of this break. At school, it’s just so busy with everything that I’m involved in and then the homework, there’s not nearly as much free time to sleep as I would like.

But when I’m at home, I also plan on going back to work at my old stomping grounds of Baskin Robbins!!! I’m super excited that I am able to pick up a couple of shifts while I’m at home because I will definitely need to make back some of the money that I missed out on. The school that I work at has their Spring Break this current week (3/13-3/17), so I wasn’t able to work my usual shifts there…and then we have our Spring Break at Fontbonne the week right after them (3/20-3/24), so that’s two full weeks without money and without seeing my favorite kids everyday!! I am going to be going through withdrawals soon! 😭

I also plan on hanging out with my family (obviously since I’ll be at home) while we’re on break because I don’t have the opportunity to go home that often… Since I don’t go home that much my family always gives me trouble about always being at school, so they’ll have to deal with me for a full week.. They’ll probably take back everything they said about wanting me at home! 😉

Well, guys thanks for reading again, and check back in next week for some more to read from me!!

peace out,

Morgan

This semester has done one thing that have shifted my college experience, it allowed me to see my passions. Recently, I’ve been sharing many conversations around campus, with best friends, dear friends, and soon to be dear friends in our affiliated student orgs. I’ve begone to open myself up more to outside ideas about what cause of action would be best and if it lines up with my internal guidelines mentioned in my previous blog post. This shift coincided with recent meetings with Christine Keller about my career prospects. I rediscovered my desire and ability to relate and understand people through sharing my struggles with integrity and lack of strong decision-making.

So I like to talk to people, so what? Basically, everyone has at least one person they can let into their world. I chose to focus on my love of conversation because it’s an outlet to release the bottled up stress and pressure of being a college student who is spread far too thin to be healthy in body and spirit. Conversations help me to steady the ship of friendship facades and life goals.

Hi again everyone! This week I am writing to you guys what I am passionate about! It’s easier if I just list it off to you:

  1. music: I LOVE MUSIC. I can’t tell you when there’s really a time where I’m not listening to music…okay maybe while I’m sleeping or in class, but that’s about it. I love listening. I love singing. I love dancing as well. I just can’t imagine my life without music.
  2. friends: Here comes the sappy part: I can’t imagine my life without my friends either. They are my world, my everything, and they inspire me everyday. I love each and every one of them, and my life has gotten better because of them.
  3. food: Food makes me happier than quite a few things, not my friends or my family, but definitely happier than 8 am classes. Snacking is typically a part of my everyday routine, and typically when I’m bored, I order a pizza or find a snack in my room!
  4. family: Family is what has gotten me where I am today. Without my family, I would not be as successful as I would like to claim to be. I try to keep in contact with a lot of my family while I’m away at school because I don’t think I would be sane without hearing my mom’s voice everyday.
  5. Buzzfeed quizzes: Now here’s one you might question my passion for, but I swear to you that Buzzfeed quizzes are a large part of my life. Every time I scroll past a quiz on any form of timeline on social media, I have to take it. It’s like an a temptation of mine. I cannot scroll past a quiz and not take it, no matter how stupid. If it was a quiz where I learn what type of bread I am, you know I already took that quiz!

Thanks guys for learning about what I’m passionate about! 🙈

peace out,

Morgan

Homecoming is a special time in both high school and college. However, the two are extremely different and students experience the two completely differently as well.

Homecoming in high school involved lots of prep for a pep rally, last minute running around and trying to memorize cheer routines, football plays, chants, and school spirit permeates. The biggest highlight is the homecoming football game and the infamous homecoming dance.

In college, school spirit is seen on campus everyday and chant wars cover sororities and fraternities as well as through various clubs. However, the best part of homecoming in college is having family members come visit and alumni coming back to watch sporting events and participate in other activities that are all over the campus. Family makes their first trip back up to campus and seeing family and friends come to visit makes seeing them all the more special and a great reason to show off your school.

The main point of homecoming in any university or high school is to have students come back to remember their time. More collegiate alumni come back to retrace their steps, visit old students, and reconnect with old professors.

No matter if you are celebrating your last homecoming in high school or you first in college, coming together and spreading school spirit and love makes all the work and effort worth it in the end.

Room 316

by DeMarcus June 27, 2016

Room 316 has served as the residential hub for most of the summer residents this far. Before it became a residential hub, it was just a normal apartment on the third floor of the Fine Arts building, also known as Southwest. A little over a month ago, I moved into this apartment with the expectation […]
