Spring has finally sprung and I know I am not the only one saying “FINALLY!” I can happily wear my sun dresses and flip flops. The cold weather just makes me feel extremely drab, and I have no motivation to put any effort into what I am wearing, or even my school work (sometimes). The warm weather has given me a boost of energy and happiness. With Spring here I feel like I just want to get outside and just walk. The warm weather lately has made me an extremely happy camper!
At the beginning of March I found myself counting down the days until Spring Break! Not too uncommon for a college student to do so being as the weeks leading up are usually filled with midterms, tests, quizzes, and projects. But this was my first Spring Break as a college student so it was way more exciting than any of my breaks in high school. I didn’t do anything to spectacular but I think it was the best spring break I’ve ever had. I started out by spending a day in Chicago visiting some family and then made my way back home to Wisconsin were I spent a good amount of the week sleeping, spending time with family, and getting together with friends. I don’t go home very often so I really appreciated my time there. Halfway through spring break I left for a road trip that entailed traveling through most of the midwest (5 states) and eventually leading back to school. Again, it may not have been as glamorous as going down to myrtle beach it was definitely a great time!
Now that I’m back I’m still trying to get back into the swing of my studies but I certainly can’t wait for my next break!
I know I’m writing this rather late, but it’s the beginning of the long weekend, and the end of my first week of classes. I can’t imagine how many of us are relieved we’ve gotten this far. The first week, full of syllabi and introductions, fosters an idea of the remainder of the semester. Of course we can’t fully gauge this! Yet, I’m sitting here thinking, “It’s going to be looooooooooooong.”
But what’s exciting is the prospect of change! We’re celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. day on Monday, a great pioneer of change, his presence serving another reminder that, inevitably, the only constant is change. You can see this in what’s happening so far. Like the way the four final candidates for the Fontbonne Presidency are coming out of hiding through student and staff panels. Imagine what kind of changes that will make.
Naturally, it’s hard to imagine how that change will impact us when there’s gas to buy, bills to pay, and people to meet. What I’m getting at here is that even though it’s the end of the first week and our first taste of the semester, I can’t wait to see what else this year will reveal. And I hope you are looking forward to it too. Cheerio!
My favorite place to study is a place where I seem to be almost 24/7, THE LIBRARY! Its a place I can study and also relax. I am pretty known amongst the staff and I have fun talking to them and seeing them pretty much every day. I especially enjoy being at the library late at night because no one is really there. Also, I can get stuff done for Geeking2Gether. Which leads into this weekends fun!
Saturday is International Game Day in The Library. There will be games and pizza! It is from 11-4, I will be there the whole time so stop by play a few games or just say ‘Hi’. Saturday night will be my first time experiencing STL Up Late. I am pretty excited. All I know it is a comedic improv. I can’t wait. Sunday I will possibly be with my family. I hope those plans go through. I miss them and they are only 20 minutes away!
I hope everyone got registered for the classes they wanted. Next semester will start my senior year! It is going to be great. I only have classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays! This is a first. I am trying to get an internship so wish me luck! I am taking: business writing, graphic design 2, writing short fiction, advertising internship, digital publications and market research. I know a lot of writing right? Good thing I love to write!
Until next time..
