And So It Begins

Two weeks down, fourteen to go. This has become my countdown, and it is yet still early in the semester. I absolutely love my “busier than busy” lifestyle here at Fontbonne, but coffee and caffeinated teas have become my best friends.

This week, I was particularly busy with one of my favorite and most recent involvements, Omicron Delta Kappa. ODK is a national leadership honor society. After being chartered last semester, we are more than excited to start participating as an established organization on campus.

To help promote ourselves to students, we set up at the Activities Fair this week to provide everyone with a little information of what we’re all about. ODK also has a Facebook page! You can check it out by following this link: https://www.facebook.com/FontbonneODK. We post daily, with #MotivationMonday, #TriviaTuesday, #WebArticleWednesday, #ThrowbackThursday, and #FBUODKFanFriday.

Omicron Delta has many events planned for this semester, including an “End the R Word” campaign, Service Day project, and a collaboration with Student Government Association with the Last Lecture series.

FBUODK at the Activities Fair!

Let the semester begin! It’s going to be a struggle, but why not tackle everything now while I’m still young? Deep breathing, caffeine, and support from my family and very best friends are all a girl needs to get through anything!

Thanks for reading..

A New Year

It is the end of the first week back from winter break. Everyone is excited to see friends, have classes with friends, or just meet new people. These are my last spring semester classes. I have 2 classes with a friend. I finally have a class with my best friend and fellow blogger Corie. I also happy to find out that I have a new resident assistant (RA). My RA and I have a few things in common and we are kicking off a great friendship. I am looking forward to what this semester brings me.

Wow. I can hardly believe we’re already a few weeks into the spring semester at Fontbonne. So much has happened already, and the time has flown by. Just this week there was something exciting every day.

My Monday’s this semester are packed full of classes all day and night, but Tuesday the Griffin Girls began working on one of the last dances for this year, the Guy/Girl Dance. This Wednesday, all the dancers will be joined by Fontbonne guys in a dance during halftime. This year we’re bringing back our childhood with a late 90′s mix of songs. Trivia nights are also happening Tuesday nights at Fontbonne, which excites my competitive side. Two weeks ago, my team won 1st place, but received 2nd last week. We’ll get ‘em next time! After all our hard work Tuesday night, we congratulated ourselves with free pancakes at IHop and they were delicious! A late night breakfast was just what I needed with exhaustion setting in too early in the week. Wednesday was much needed quality time with my roommate. Griffin Girls has kept me extremely busy this semester so far, but I was able to watch the season premiere of our favorite show, Smash, with my roommate. To anyone interested in Broadway musicals I highly recommend watching. The show is amazing!

Today was yet another day filled with homework, class, and dance. I have to admit I am exhausted, but thrilled with all that’s happening this semester. Hopefully this weekend is one that is both productive and relaxing! Thanks for reading!

Until next week..

“Welcome Back!” It’s a very common phrase I’ve heard when I came back to school a few weeks ago. I feel so excited that I just started my spring semester, which is also my second semester at Fontbonne. Even though it was so cold outside, student and staff are still so friendly to say “hello” to me.

For this new semester, I’d like to share a quote from Mother Teresa, to encourage you and me: “Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” I will keep my smile when I see you on campus. Welcome back, my dear friends. Let us celebrate it with lovely smiles!

Well, it’s the second week back, and I hope everyone is getting into the swing of things. For me, that means Environmental Club! And for Environmental Club, that means promoting our activities for the spring semester. I won’t give everything away, but I will throw in a plug for our next major event – and [...]
