“What classes are you taking next semester?” I am starting to hear that more and more. It is weird for me not to have any classes next semester due to finishing up this semester. So much is happening to me both in school and outside of school. Becoming the President of the Residential Hall Association and finishing up in December are just a few of the school changes. I get to drive again on the 19th of this month since I didn’t have anymore seizures, and I am adopting a dog. I wouldn’t be where I am at without Fontbonne. This place and the people here helped me succeed in life.

So, advising week starts Monday (help me… please…). I couldn’t be happier though because that means I’m one semester away from being a senior!!!! I didn’t get to this spot overnight though, I’ve had many late nights and study parties that I don’t wanna relive. Anywho, when I’m studying, I found that I do my best work in the heat of the night (and yes, I mean all-nighters) Now before you guys judge me, I realize that this isn’t the best practice, but it works for me. All I do is put on my comfortable pajamas, tie up my hair, and get to work. Another thing that helps is that I take rest breaks that last 30 minutes to an hour, and during that time I sleep. I like to play music to keep me focused while I’m working, so that way, I can get my daily jam session in while being productive. While I’m on campus, I study in DSAC because it’s comfy and I can get a good meal.

This is the new year

It is my last semester here at Fontbonne. It is starting to kick in that I will be starting a new adventure after this. I have grown since I transferred here — about myself and about others that I care about. Here is a list of things that  I have discovered since I began here.

  • i can trust my friends
  • when you are taking a class with Dr. Sommer, you have to give a lot of details
  • teaching is not for me, but writing is for me
  • enjoy the little things in life, like walking to Walgreens or Bread Co on a nice day instead of driving
  • having hope is a good thing to have
  • teachers want to help you graduate

I began thinking about what will happen after December, which is kind of scary for me. Here is another list of things, only this is what I want to accomplish.

  • see the last The Hobbit movie
  • adopt a beagle
  • get a job
  • kick off living on my own with one of my best friends

I’m starting to realize that this is it. My last year here due to graduation in December. It is my last time for a lot of stuff. I have had a blast the past year and a half here. I’ve met some great people that i consider my family here. The experience are priceless that I will never trade or take for granted. All my hard work has gotten so far from high school.

Only A Month In.

by Corie February 3, 2014

January is over! I can’t believe it! This semester is going to go by so fast just because I have so much to do. This semester is the start to my senior year of college. I feel like I just graduated high school not that long ago. It has only been a month in and […]

Time’s-a-Flying

by Alumni Posts January 29, 2014

Well, here we are – week 3 of the spring semester. I’m having a hard time fathoming that I have less than 50 days of classes left until my time is done at FBU and in academia in general. Like many other seniors my remaining days are being spent readying my résumé, creating an e-portfolio, […]

I’m Free!

by Alumni Posts November 19, 2012

2 paintings, 2 handmade wooden frames and 3 posters. 52.5 hours of in-class time and at least the same amount, if not more, working outside of class, so over one hundred hours spent on the show. It sounds easy making art 24/7, fun even, but it was so demanding of your time/energy/skill/brain. I literally would go […]
