Sledding

A week ago we had a surprise snow day at Fontbonne! A friend and I decided to make the most of our snow day and made some great memories!

First, we went sledding on Art Hill in Forest Park! It was my first time sledding there and I absolutely loved it! There were tons of other people there enjoying their snow day, just like we were. We had a blast sledding down Art Hill, but the trek back up was a bit of a workout. :) It was totally worth it though!

After some sledding we stopped by Starbucks for some coffee to warm us up! It was much needed. I couldn’t feel my fingers or toes after spending a couple hours outdoor in the cold winter weather! We sat in Starbucks for a little while and caught each other up on what was happening in our lives, which is always a good thing! It’s hard to keep track of what’s happening in each others lives during a busy school week, so the snow day gave us time to catch up!

To finish off our snow day, we watched The Great Gatsby! That was the first time I had ever seen it and I adored it! I think its one of my favorite movies now! If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it!

A week later, I reminiscing on that wonderful day full of fun that I got to spend with a great friend!

Snow Days: Then and Now

by Carlyn on February 25, 2013

in College Life

As we all know, there were a couple snow days recently. I have never met a student or teacher that does not like snow days. For one, that means a day off. And secondly, snow is just so gorgeous to look at. (At least it is until it gets plowed to the sides of roads in massive, dirty piles.) When I was younger, in elementary and middle school, of course my snow days were spent outside. My brother and I would walk past only a few houses up the street to a church with a giant hill that we would sleigh-ride on (sadly, the hill has now been taken over by the church expansion). It was convenient because we could get there all by ourselves. Eventually, we would come back home and watch the movie Snow Day. You may not be familiar with it, but to me and my brother, it’s a classic (a very corny Nickelodeon movie, but classic).

However, my ways have changed since those days. Now, I prefer to use snow days as a catch-up day. I like to wrap myself in a cozy blanket and get ahead on some school work. This makes me feel so accomplished and ready to conquer the upcoming school days. Don’t worry, I do take breaks in between subjects and watch an episode of The Big Bang Theory, Project Runway, or American Idol (I’m not 100% a book worm). As you can see, my inner hermit characteristics come out during my most recent snow days.
