There are lots of things I am really excited about that are going to happen in the next three months of my life. To start with, I am interested to see what the evening is like at my high school’s annual Buona Festa auction. For the second year in a row it will be held on my high school’s campus and it is a big fundraiser event. Another thing I am excited about that many Americans have been anxiously awaiting is the premiere of the Beauty and the Beast Live action film. I am so interested to see how magical the remake of this movie will be once it finally comes out in theaters in mid March.
Something I am most enthusiastic about is the upcoming spring golf season that starts the first full week of March. My team practices at the Highlands in Forest Park and mostly we practice individually based on our own schedules. Our first spring tournament will be a few weeks after our first practice, during the weekend of April 7th up in Monmouth, Illinois. I am so anxious about my final golf season as a college athlete because I want to do my very best and leave all of what I have out on the golf course. I can’t believe there are only a few more van rides and a few more overnights in hotels with my amazing golf team. I have made so many great memories over the last three and a half years and I can’t wait to make more memories throughout my final spring season.
One other major thing I am really looking forward to this spring is graduation on May 8th. I am excited to walk onto that arena floor alongside all of my classmates and fellow athletes. Throughout this semester I am motivated to do my very best in my classes and make the most of my final weeks in college surrounded by my friends. For me it is hard to imagine not having some of my friends who are originally from other cities to not be close by anymore. But personally I am anxious about what particular job I will have after graduation as I know there are lots of opportunities for me based on my major.
Until next week, I hope you enjoyed reading this weeks post and I am definitely hopeful for what lies ahead in the coming months.
This is my first time blogging with Fontbonne and I am pretty excited to see how it goes this semester. I am a second semester senior at Fontbonne and I have truly enjoyed my last three and a half years here. I still can’t believe that graduation is just around the corner, but I know God has a plan for me once it comes around. For the last three years I have been on the Women’s golf team at Fontbonne and I have made so many friends while on the team. I have made so many memories in other cities and can’t wait to tell you more about my adventures on the golf team as my final season approaches. I have also been a member of the service organization on campus at Fontbonne for the last three years and I really enjoy taking other students to service sites off campus.
I have lived here in St. Louis my whole life and I am a die hard Cardinals baseball fan. I am also an only child and I have a dog back at home. I am very close with my family and I enjoy traveling to different parts of the United States with my immediate family. I can’t wait for my new adventure with my parents in May to discover a few new cities. Stay tuned to hear more about life at Fontbonne and who I am.
My name is Tricia Welch. I am a Senior at Fontbonne this year. I am a double major in Buisness Administration and Management. I am part of the Fontbonne activities board, an SGA rep, and a member of Enactus. I am currently doing an internship with lifework systems. My boss runs a business in her home. She sells professional development programs to different health care facilities. It is my job to put word doc into an excel spreadsheet and call the facilities to get contact information. I am helping her book a conference so that she can sell her programs. Next year I would like to go to grad school at Wash U to get my MBA. However, it is likely I will need work experience first. I want to work in retail and I love sales. For fun, I like to hang out with friends, watch TV, play games on my phone, bake, and go swimming. I am really excited for Fall, but I’m not ready for it just yet. I can’t wait for my favorite show Scream Queens to start and to drink pumpkin drinks. I also love Halloween. I will be doing lots of baking, decorating and going to haunted houses.
This coming year is my last year at Fontbonne. I can’t believe how it’s flown by! While I am incredibly excited, I feel like I’m not ready to leave my Fontbonne family. This last year, I intend to make an impact and hopefully leave my mark.
DeMarcus and I are planning something special. A podcast just for Fontbonne! His brilliant idea has spiraled into a non-stop brainstorming session. We’ve been meeting occasionally over the summer to discuss the structure, format, topics, technicalities, and practicalities.
Our next step is to record a mock-up/test episode that I can edit and spiff up with DeMarcus’ wonderful into and outdo tunes (amazing.) There are a lot of steps involved and right now we are in the very rough, beginning stages. But I definitely think this is an idea worth pursuing.
We would love to hear what you, the Fontbonne population, wants to hear!
