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.
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 so many things has happened:
-I got an internship.
-I have been going to many concerts.
-I made new friends.
-I only have class two days a week!
My internship is with ‘Stache Media and they have interns all over the country promote musical artists. Which means I get to go to shows, for FREE. I just do reports and go out around STL to promote. SO MUCH FUN. This is something I have always wanted to do, but never knew how to get there. So far the concerts I have been to are: Lecrae/Derek Minor for Winter Jam, and Jeremy Messersmith. On Saturday I will be seeing a band called For Today. They will be playing at Fubar so go check them out! Like I said I have been making new friends and it has been people that I have seen before on campus. Just never really had a chance to be friends with them. I’m glad I am now though. They are such wonderful people. Now, I only have class two days a week. WHHHATTTT?! How does this happen. I was aiming for no Friday classes. Ill take no Monday, Wednesday or Friday classes. Though, I am at Fontbonne everyday working on homework, intern stuff or doing work study.
If you are interested in going to the show at Fubar to see For Today here is a link for more info:
Hopefully I will see you there!
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, finishing up my major course requirements, deleting those incriminating pictures from Facebook, job-hunting, and dreadfully writing that HULK of a senior seminar paper. In my spare time I enjoy taking deep breaths and telling myself “everything will be okay”…May, and warm weather will be here in no time.
