I just finished my last exam of the semester! I thought this would be a great opportunity to blog a little about summer and what I plan to do.

I actually have a very long list of things I want to do this summer. It doubles as a to-do list and a bucket list. I’ve been adding to it probably since Spring Break. I am going to jam-pack these upcoming months with activities.

Probably the two biggest summer goals: work on art and get an internship. A lot of art students will agree–part of the struggle is applying non-stop for internships. This past year I’ve been applying like crazy and I will continue to do so until I get something! At least, that’s the plan. In the meantime, I plan to spend most of the summer creating. Aside from pieces for the senior thesis show, I have some projects of my own that I can finally work on, as well as some more crafty enterprises I want to do with my family (tie-dye and silkscreening for example). I also want to make a zine! A zine is a handy magazine that you make yourself. It’s super easy and I hope to blog about the process (so you, too, can make one!)

My friend and I are also brainstorming ideas for a podcast. That, in itself, is a rather large project.

Lastly, my sister and I are hosting a small film festival in our own backyard! Our projector arrived in the mail a few weeks ago and now we just need to have a test-run. My sister studied film in college and I’ve always been a movie buff. This is a small dream of ours and it will be fantastic to see it become a reality.

So those are some of the things I am looking forward to!

Good luck to those of you who still have exams and congrats to those who are done. Summer will be here in no time 😉


The car I always wanted is the sky blue Fiat. It has a moon roof and is the perfect color. I had always wanted a Fiat because I like foreign cars; recently I saw a light green fiat that I really like.

However, I think I will end up buying a Honda. This is because Fiats are not reliable and known for breaking down. Hondas are known for being reliable. I want a car that lasts for 10 years and that doesn’t need a lot of maintenance. The reason for buying a car is so that I can earn credit to receive a mortgage. I plan on buying a house and never living in an apartment. I want to use money as an investment, not throw it all away in rent.





If I could give any advice to the pre-Fontbonne me I would definitely tell her to not stress so much.  Understand that you cannot be in control of absolutely everything in life.  I would also tell myself that I was going to end up a planner and that was going to be tough for me because I cannot control everything.  I did not know this as a freshman coming into college and if I could prep myself for that I know I would not have stressed so much when I did not have control.

I would also tell myself to actually go to class.  Even though I thought I did not need to and that I was free from mom and dad I was not a genius.  I would tell myself to get up out of bed even if I had the worst headache.  Unless I was vomiting or unable to move I should have gone to classes all the time.

Another piece of advice I would give myself is to not sleep so often.  Although taking naps always felt amazing, I was only hurting friendship and wasting time to spend with those friends I had made.

The last piece of advice I would give is to attend the Freshman orientation.  I would have made so many friends much quicker and would not have struggled so much in my first year.  I skipped my orientation and although I made many friends here at Fontbonne, it was not without challenge.

Go to orientation, Go to class, and DO NOT sleep so much!




The most important thing anyone should know in college is to plan your career junior year! You should start looking at internships before than, but definitely take the time during Junior year to figure out what you want to do. If you wait until Senior year, it may be too late. For example, I am a Junior now and I found out that in order to get a schalorship to get my MBA I need to do more leadership and community service. Right now I have a year to do it. Had a waited until next year I would have been out of time since the application is due in October.

Besides that, it took a long time to figure out what kind of job that I want. I went to the career fair hosted at Fontbonne and did not see any jobs that I liked. Being a Buisness major, there are many jobs that are not of interest to me. But then I found a company that I was interested in: Nordstrom! I applied for the internship and they gave it to me next summer. Had I waited until next year I would be a year behind!

It is very fulfilling to know what I am going to do after I graduate. Many people take a year off and then decide what they are going to do. I would advise anyone not to do that.


Career Plans

I am very excited for this summer. I got an internship with Nordstrom for next year! I applied for it this year and since I do not have any retail experience, they want me to take a regular sales position this year instead. Hopefully after I complete the internship next summer, I will get a […]

There is one thing that I cannot live without. It’s white with small gold polka dots and filled with writing. It follows me wherever I go. It’s my planner. If you don’t have a planner…GET ONE. You can even use the calendar on your phone if that is easier for you. I’m telling you, it […]

In high school, I didn’t really need to have good time management because I didn’t have a lot to worry about. I could have time for clubs, sports, classes, friends, have time to go to Friday night football games, and still get good grades in all my classes. Coming into college, I never realized how […]
