Yesterday I had the chance to go to my first Fontbonne SpringFest! It was probably one of the best events Fontbonne has had this year. There were two blow ups – a wrecking ball and a velcro wall. The velcro wall was actually kind of painful because my hair kept sticking to my velcro suit, but at least I can cross it off my bucket list. Just kidding, that’s not on my bucket list! Who’s ever even heard of a velcro wall? Anyway…what else? Oh my goodness! The amount of food was awesome – they cooked nice pulled pork for lunch and then there were free sno-cones, free cotton candy, and free cupcakes from a truck! That last one sounds a little sketchy, but it’s a thing in St. Louis apparently…they were fantastic cupcakes so I don’t really care where they came from. The whole day was a blast! There were lots of crafts – you could tie dye a shirt and there was even a Pinterest party. At the end of the day, I won a yoga bag from a raffle. There was a Julian Michaels DVD with it too! I’m kind of scared of her workouts…she might make me stand on my head or something :/ We’ll see…wish me luck!
Big shout out to all the people who planned and set up everything for SpringFest! Your efforts were greatly appreciated…and for all of you who skipped out, don’t miss it next year!
Today is Springfest at Fontbonne. I spent most of today helping the fashion merchandising promotions class with their fashion show. I did odd jobs and helped dress models. Although I was backstage for most of the show, I think it was pretty amazing! I know I have a lot to live up to when I’m in the class next year!
After the fashion show I went and mingled with some of the incoming freshman for next year, and watched the Live Band Karaoke. After a brief dinner break, I’m about to go back for the concert tonight. Ryan Cabrera and Tyler Hilton are performing. I have never heard any of their music, but it will still be an experience!
It’s hard to believe that there’s only a couple more weeks left until summer. I have so much to do until then. It’s a little overwhelming. It will sure be nice when summer arrives and I don’t have to worry about homework or studying! I’m hoping for warm summer weather soon. I just have to make it until May 13th!
Thanks for reading..
It’s weird that we’re so rapidly reaching the end of the school year. I can’t believe that we will be out of school a mere week from today!
Though this entire school year has been a great experience, I’d have to say that I’ve been having the most fun in the past few months. I’ve made a lot of great friends from the biology department this semester, and, though our rendition of “hanging out” usually involves studying, we did manage to have some fun. The BSO was definitely more active this semester than last; we took a field trip to the Butterfly House, and we had more random meetings, which are always very fun. Also, I, along with two of my very good friends, Dillon and Steph (both of whom are bio majors) finally took our unofficial field trip to the zoo that we had been talking about for a long time. While we were there, we were able to feed the stingrays and pet the sharks that had just arrived for their summer stay in Saint Louis.
Springfest, which was yesterday, also offered a lot of fun. The BSO sponsored a dunk tank in order to fund our gorilla adoptions. A few biology majors (including me!) got into the tank, and we even got three of our biology professors (Dr. Rayhel, Dr. Paine-Saunders, and Dr. Truong) to get in as well. Let’s just say that the straight-from-the-hose water was quite refreshing!
So, as we enter the ever-dreaded exam week, we’ll have some fun memories to look back on and a whole summer to look forward to.
One thing that I absolutely loved about high school was Spirit Week. The themed dress days, the pep rally, and of course, the Homecoming dance to wrap it up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Fontbonne has a Spirit Week, too!
Of course, this being college, things are a little different. The activities are mostly things like a kickball tournament, volleyball game, or window painting. There aren’t any specific themed dress days (although there was a Cinco de Mayo party!) but one thing remains the same – the big finale!
Friday was the most exciting day of the week – Springfest! There were games and activities all day, and a live concert in the evening! It was great. SO much better than high school.
