spring

Ever since I was in the 5th grade, my family and I would travel across the country to spend a week away from home. We’ve been to Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Texas. We would visit museums, enjoy the natural beauty of national parks , and walk battlefields.
We learned about the settlers in Jamestown, fell in the Atlantic Ocean in Delaware, walked the Antietam battlefield, saw ghosts in Gettysburg, strode along the banks of the Savannah River in Augusta, found a Civil War soldier named Butt in Stones River cemetery (I thank him everyday for his service on national holidays), climbed a small mountain in Chattanooga, and saw the Stockyards in Dallas.
My God… there are too many stories to tell from each trip. If you care to listen, please leave a comment below. I’ve got plenty of time on my hands, because this year we’re staying at home.

Hmm, what am I most excited for?  Well, I’d say that I’m excited for spring.  While it feels like it’s already here, it’s just around the corner.  I love the feeling of the warm air and cool breeze (or vice versa) brush against my face, the smell of freshly bloomed flowers or rainfall, and the sight of all the plants springing back with all their vibrant colors.

My favorite kinds of plants that come around this time of year are bulb plants; crocuses, daffodils, snowdrops, grape hyacinths just to name a few.  I also love flowering trees, such as magnolias, which we have here on campus.

Do you guys like flowers?  What kind?  Is there a special reason why you like them?  Tell me in the comments below!

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 weather we have been having makes me so so happy! The 60-70 degree weather is to die for, and I can’t wait until it is here all the time. This kind of weather makes the wait for spring a little unbearable, and I cannot wait. The April flowers are so gorgeous, and St. Louis in the spring weather is so charming. The Art Museum is opening their famous exhibit: “Art in Bloom,” and I am so excited to walk the halls of the art museum, the exhibit is absolutely breathtaking. Watercolor is one of my favorite art forms to do and to see. I encourage everyone to get outside this weekend, enjoy the beautiful weather. Also check out the “Art in Bloom” opening on February 24! I am most excited for the beautiful spring weather and a fabulous trip to one of my favorite St. Louis staples: the art museum!

by Claire April 13, 2016

The time after spring break until the end of school year is almost as bad as the week before spring break. Everyone is getting Spring Fever and the great weather makes everyone want to go get outside and out of the classroom for the summer. With one month of class left before exams, I wanted […]

Fontbonne in the Spring

by Fontbonne University April 28, 2015

What is St. Louis like during the changing of seasons from winter to spring?  Well that depends, are you the kind of person that really enjoys sneezing from allergies, mold, and other nature’s blooming plantations?  Okay, St. Louis is not all like that.  But having so many types of trees in our city as well […]

Spring Time

by Fontbonne University April 7, 2015

I realize that I am pretty late for springtime daydreaming, though I think it is not too late to still think about the adventures of spring and summer.  After staying inside all winter, nothing compares to going outside and playing with friends.  When I was a kid I can just remember all of the adventures […]

Being Outside

by Patricia April 7, 2015

I am really glad that the weather is so nice. It started to warm up during spring break and has continued since. Although it snowed last week and I wasn’t too happy about that, the nice weather has come back and I think it will stay. After all, I don’t think it will snow in […]
