If you are ever looking for somewhere to go during the summer on a nice day. I would recommend Forest Park. Forest Park is located around the corner from Fontbonne, just past Skinker Blvd. There’s the Zoo, Art Museum, History Museum and so much more. The best thing about it is that everything is free! It is a great place to hang out with the family, a group of friends, or go as a couple. You can also get in shape by using Forest Park’s track. You can run, jog, or even bike ride. If you are ever looking for somewhere to take the family or have a nice day out, this is surely the place to go! A trip to Forest Park can turn your boring day upside down!
I just got back to STL from spending some weeks back home in Illinois. Which was my last. Illinois will no longer be my physical home come July. My parents will be living in Florida, and I will still be in STL. Its a scary thing. I have to make a decision where I am going to go after the fall semester since I will be graduated. I decided to move to Colorado after graduation. To start a new chapter of my life with my boyfriend. Finally ending the long distance. It will be great to be a normal couple. While I was home, he came to visit! Which was awesome and amazing. I loved it. We saw a lot of movies; Godzilla, X-Men, and Captain America 2. Also, exploring the Chicagoland area. Illinois will always be my state, and Chicago will always be my city.
January is over! I can’t believe it! This semester is going to go by so fast just because I have so much to do. This semester is the start to my senior year of college. I feel like I just graduated high school not that long ago. It has only been a month in and so many things has happened:
-I got an internship.
-I have been going to many concerts.
-I made new friends.
-I only have class two days a week!
My internship is with ‘Stache Media and they have interns all over the country promote musical artists. Which means I get to go to shows, for FREE. I just do reports and go out around STL to promote. SO MUCH FUN. This is something I have always wanted to do, but never knew how to get there. So far the concerts I have been to are: Lecrae/Derek Minor for Winter Jam, and Jeremy Messersmith. On Saturday I will be seeing a band called For Today. They will be playing at Fubar so go check them out! Like I said I have been making new friends and it has been people that I have seen before on campus. Just never really had a chance to be friends with them. I’m glad I am now though. They are such wonderful people. Now, I only have class two days a week. WHHHATTTT?! How does this happen. I was aiming for no Friday classes. Ill take no Monday, Wednesday or Friday classes. Though, I am at Fontbonne everyday working on homework, intern stuff or doing work study.
If you are interested in going to the show at Fubar to see For Today here is a link for more info:
Hopefully I will see you there!
This Valentine’s Day weekend, St. Louis will be celebrating the 250th anniversary of its founding by French fur merchants Pierre Laclede and Auguste Chouteau. Festivities will include the “Burning Love” festival n Forest Park where a 25-foot statue of a heart will be lit on fire during a mass public engagement ceremony with 250 participating couples (all to the tune of an Elvis tribute artist). “Cakeway to West” will also begin that weekend, where several cake statues will be placed in significant St. Louis locations. A downloadable app will be available for those wishing to find the various points of interest. The Missouri History Museum will also be hosting multiple events.
