I’m a Poet

by Courtney November 10, 2013

Last week, while I was looking online for some microbiology information, I saw a blog-style article. Being interested, I clicked on the link to open the article and began reading. I’m a very opinionated person myself, and I respect others’ viewpoints so long as they have backing for those viewpoints, but I definitely didn’t like [...]

Try, Try, Try…

by Courtney October 27, 2013

All of my friends know that I absolutely adore music and theatre. (Hence the reason I’m pursuing a theatre minor here at Fontbonne!) However, recently, I’ve become pretty tired of mainstream music. Don’t get me wrong – songs like Katy Perry’s “Roar” and The Wanted’s “Glad You Came” are catchy, but they don’t have a [...]

Inspiration from a Hot Sauce Packet

by Courtney October 6, 2013

I love inspirational quotes. They bring a smile to my face on a dreary day, they make me laugh, and they remind me to keep believing in myself and progressing toward my life goals. Generally, I find inspiration in quotes from movies, books, plays, and musicals. However, I just recently found an inspirational quote located [...]

The New Year

by Tim September 20, 2013

I was excited for this school year. It is my second year here, and I have become vice president of the Residential Housing Association. My schedule didn’t look too bad. I am glad that I have no Friday classes. My favorite class so far is my introduction to secondary teaching. This is a more hands [...]

Alternate Endings

by Courtney July 27, 2013

When it comes to Jonathan Larson’s landmark musical “Rent,” there are basically two reactions: some people love it, while others could really go without seeing it. Personally, I love it. “Rent,” to me, is an inspirational story about overcoming diversity and living for the day. But in this blog, I’m not really intending to praise [...]

by Conner July 16, 2013

Wow, what a long and crazy week it has been. Other than the usual babysitting, baseball games, and tasks that fill my life daily, this last week has held some different happenings. In the last week, I have decided to get my heart pumping again and stray from yoga and standard dance technique and added [...]

A True American Classic

by Courtney June 2, 2013

The first time I read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby,” I hated it. Now you should know that I rarely use the word “hate” because it’s such a strong word. However, I really, really disliked the book. I guess I wasn’t prepared for a book exposing all of the 1920s immorality. However, as this [...]

What’s YOUR Animal?!

by Courtney May 30, 2013

It all started this past December before exams. Fellow blogger Carly and I were discussing the ever-important question, “If you were an animal, which animal would you be?” (I should mention here that, yes, we both understood that we, as humans, are animals in the evolutionary sense; hence, we were referring to wild animals during [...]
