One thing I love about college is finding out what really interests you and what your passions are. So I am here to tell you a few of my passions!
- Taking adventures- I love finding new places to hike, walk my dogs, and eat around St. Louis. There are so many opportunities around St. Louis!
- St. Louis Cardinals- My family have always been Cards fans and now that I live in St. Louis, my love for them has grown even more. I love going to Busch Stadium and cheering them on and enjoying the amazing atmosphere that other Cardinal fans possess.
- Helping Others- I love helping others whether it is here at Fontbonne or volunteering at a food bank. It really alters my perspective and makes me feel so great afterwards. I believe everyone should try to volunteer, especially with all the opportunities around the city.
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!
This is my first time blogging with Fontbonne and I am pretty excited to see how it goes this semester. I am a second semester senior at Fontbonne and I have truly enjoyed my last three and a half years here. I still can’t believe that graduation is just around the corner, but I know God has a plan for me once it comes around. For the last three years I have been on the Women’s golf team at Fontbonne and I have made so many friends while on the team. I have made so many memories in other cities and can’t wait to tell you more about my adventures on the golf team as my final season approaches. I have also been a member of the service organization on campus at Fontbonne for the last three years and I really enjoy taking other students to service sites off campus.
I have lived here in St. Louis my whole life and I am a die hard Cardinals baseball fan. I am also an only child and I have a dog back at home. I am very close with my family and I enjoy traveling to different parts of the United States with my immediate family. I can’t wait for my new adventure with my parents in May to discover a few new cities. Stay tuned to hear more about life at Fontbonne and who I am.
Even though fall already started few weeks ago, I still want to share the different fun activities I have done during this season. I am not a fan of cold weather, but right now it’s kind of a mix between cold and hot so its fine.
I went apple picking for the first time and it was very fun. We had to walk through the apple orchards looking for good red or green apples. Personally, I prefer the green ones. It was really tasteful having fresh apples.
The week after apple picking I went to Eckert’s farm for the evening. It was a great day very sunny and the sunset was beautiful. There were different things to do there, like, games, giving food to kangaroos, and spending time around a warm bonfire. When the night came we had smores and hot dogs, they were delicious.
I appreciate this kind of activities that Fontbonne University offers, especially if you are not from here it is a great way to know more about St. Louis. So far I have enjoyed fall season. I can’t believe we are already in the middle of the semester, time is flying like crazy. I hope everyone is enjoying fall season too.
