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!
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 to share some of my tips for making it to the end of the semester without completely losing it.
- Make time to go outside and enjoy nature when it is nice out.
- Do your homework as early as possible and start studying a little bit each day for tests, so when a spontaneous game breaks out, your school work won’t be compromised.
- Stick to some vitamin C for your energy, not sugar drinks and coffee.
- But do indulge in some of your Easter candy.
- Start on projects and papers early because everyone knows how there is that one day that every assignment seems to be due on.
- Take advantage of April showers as work days, so you can spend the not so rainy days outside!
Just remember to make time for school and time for you because staying sane is just as important. Do your homework in the meadow or go sit outside when you get your lunch from DSAC. Go take a walk around Forest Park, or rent bikes and ride over to the zoo. Spring 2016 will be over before we know it. Until next time. . .
