goals

I have decided that my goal for this semester is to just do better. What I mean is that i want to do better in classes, do better at work, just be better overall in my entire life. If I’m doing something I want to put all my effort into, in turn creating a better body of work for myself so everyone can see it. What I truly want to accomplish is the feeling that I did everything I could to make a better life for myself.

So you ask how I will get there right? Well all i can do it get up every morning and put effort into any and everything. Nothing beats a fail but a try! I will be better because I will try everyday and because I believe in myself. I will become a better me. :)

Happy New Year!!!

by Lizzie on January 31, 2014

in College Life

Chuc mung nam moi!!! Translation: Happy Lunar New Year!!! Or Chinese, hehe.

Hello, again, everyone. I hope you’re all happy and healthy out there! Things have been pretty okay lately for me. Well, except for the bitter coldness not too long ago…I have never been so impatient for spring to come! But I’ll deal with it. Be patient, young one…Sure.

Anyways, I have actually made some new decisions this year. They’re not really “new year’s resolutions” but more of letting myself explore and experience new things. Well, I have been doing that but I’ve been talked to about being a little more selfish–to take care of myself more.

I may have mentioned before about working with my mom all the time, but this year, I need to work for myself. As a ceramics major, I need to expand my experiences. Therefore, I will apply for an internship! Where, you may ask? I don’t have a specific place in mind yet, but I have options. That will be updated later. I will also work on more individual projects to show my techniques and prepare myself for a show (taking place in March). I’m determined to make extraordinary things and hope people will appreciate it.

Another thing is to take things slowly this time. Last semester was almost a nightmare. I said almost because I did have fun and gained new friendships and opportunities, so I can’t complain too much. This semester, I want to be more relaxed and not stress over too many things. I would also want my fellow Fontbonnies to relax and just take each day slowly; cherish every moment. I know, how cliche is that? But it’s really true!

Life is precious. Yes, there are crazy people and things out there, but let’s be happy that we have what we have and please, don’t take them for granted. Take care!

I know I am extremely late with the whole “new year” posts, but now I finally have time to share about how things are going to be different for me in 2014. I have coined 2014 the year of work. From working in my classes to working in the theatre, this year I am becoming more of a “working girl”. This year I plan on making sure that I give every class my full attention so that my education can be top priority. Also this year I plan to be more involved in school activities, from fun events hosted by FAB to possibly even becoming a member of FOCUS. This year will definitely be a new start for me. So I guess you could say ,”New year new me!”

These past weeks have been quite stressful on me. I could let things get to me, be upset, or have a mental breakdown. OR I can make myself to-do lists, and I can have the mindset of I CAN DO THIS. Once you tell yourself you can’t do something, then you won’t. It is not hard to back away and be a coward. It is hard to stand up, say you can do something, and study your butt off to meet the grades that you need. This thinking really applies to my life right now. I would love to just go off and hide in a corner and not do anything, but that is not possible. There is only a little over a week left in this school year, and it is time to finish what I have started. Until then, I will be studying, doing what is right, and counting down the hours until summer. Only 229 left! (I think… I was never good at math.)

Deciding Factor… Fontbonne

by Marsha February 6, 2012

The question many people ask….Why did you choose Fontbonne? After years of being undecided, while attending a community college I finally had a light bulb moment! – Fontbonne University “Learn more. Be more.” Its like that universal commercial, you can’t help but know the slogan – and this message speaks volumes. Fontbonne was always a [...]
