Hello, Griffins and future Griffins! My name is Corie and I am a transferred junior here at Fontbonne. I am from Plainfield, Illinois. Plainfield is about an hour south of Chicago. I usually tell people I am from Chicago because no one knows where Plainfield is located, so Chicago is easier. I like to spend time with my friends, watch reality TV and movies, surf the net, listen to some music, and the obvious shopping (when I have the money). For being a transfer student I have actually made quite a few friends. People here are incredibly nice. For the most part I see people here are very outgoing. I’m probably like most transfers, worried about making friends. Here at Fontbonne that was not a problem at all, the key is to get involved! Now you’re probably wondering: if she’s from Illinois how did she end up in Saint Louis? Well, my whole family pretty much lives here, and my cousin goes to Fontbonne as well. Actually, being here has brought me closer to my family.

Now, over the weekend was my first real baseball game. It was so much fun, I had a blast. My roommate and I went on the metro link to the stadium and enjoyed our free hot dog and drink while watching the Cardinals win. Five dollars to see a baseball game and free food; who would pass that up? I cannot wait to get tickets for the Blues games. This is a picture of my roommate and me (I am on the left), the other is the front of the stadium.

My Spring Break was a week of extreme relaxation, and that is exactly what I needed! I worked every day, at the place where I had my first job. I love it there so much that I would work without pay! When I wasn’t working, I was catching up with some grade school friends and starting my newest hobby of sewing! I do not know what came over me this Spring Break, but I decided that I was going to make myself a skirt! In fact, I made myself two skirts! I used extra fabric and only spent $1.29 on the whole project! I usually do not enjoy those things, because I have little patience. However, sewing was quite relaxing for me, and I plan to continue this new little hobby!
