The semester is almost over and hopefully all of you are feeling that you didn’t hold anything back! I don’t know about you but my first swim of the year is always better when I feel that I did the best I could possibly do.

This week is about sharing the most important thing I learned this semester. I learned a lot in my one year in STL but this semester was especially significant. It has taught me (or I taught myself, either way) that life is too short to do the same things, day in and day out. Yes, routines are healthy and important when chasing success but that’s not what I mean. When faced with a decision to do something you’ve done before or something new, always chose the latter! I’m sure there are things that were so much fun you just want to do them over and over, but trust me when I say it’s better to try new things! In my one year living in STL, I have faced many decisions on where to eat or what bar to go to. I always try a new place and insist on staying away from doing things twice because I enjoy keeping things excting, new, and adventurous. In transferring from my old school, which I loved, I have learned that it doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing, you control your own happiness!

Also, Fontbonne Lacrosse’s senior day is this Saturday April 25th at Gay Field. I am the only senior and would appreicate any support I can get to help us get our first win! Go Griffins!

NaNoWriMo

So in the spirit of trying something new this semester (not counting Fontbonne itself, which is new to me), I’m going to be participating in NaNoWriMo this year. I first discovered National Novel Writing Month a couple of years ago, but it was already halfway done and last year I just plain lost track of time. NaNoWriMo is an online community that dedicates the month of November every year to writing the first draft of an original novel. What your story is about is left completely up to you; all genres are welcomed. It doesn’t matter if you’re an amateur writer who’s never written anything longer than a five page essay, because all skill levels are accepted. Plus, their forums offer generous support and a wide degree of information on a truly vast amount of topics. There’s only a few rules: 1) entries must reach 50,000 words by the end of November, and 2) writing cannot begin before November 1st. Other than that, you’re free to reach that goal any way you see fit!

Is anyone else on campus doing NaNoWriMo this year?
