Stress

Hey everyone!!

Welcome to the end of the year! Finals are less than a week away, and I can’t wait to not be a constant ball of stress that always has some form of homework due every single day. I won’t be finished with finals until next Thursday, so I’ve got a long week ahead of me 😅

But let’s fast forward real quick and talk about summer!!! I’m not sure if it will be a super exciting summer, but I am excited to go back home to be with my family and to also work at Baskin Robbins! I feel like that may be all that I talk about when I go home, but at least it will be the summer season and I hope to work more…

I’m also excited to go to the beach in July for my family vacation. We are going to DESTIN, FL!!! 🏖️ I get to meet up with part of my family that lives in Alabama, and I only get to see them twice a year and I can’t wait to see them because I feel like I never get to see them (hence the twice a year part)…

But that’s about all I know about my summer so far, but I’ll inform you all we get back to school in August!!

peace out and see you all soon,

Morgan

Finals…finally!

by Anna on April 20, 2017

in Academics,College Life

Hello, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing Easter break — maybe with friends and family and/or doing something you enjoy.  I (as usual) had tons of homework to do, but I did enjoy an Easter lunch with my dad’s family (got to see my two young cousins, always adorable and entertaining!) and an Easter egg hunt with my horses!  They each found six eggs filled with clover, carrots, or marshmallows, and of course they loved it immensely.  In case you haven’t figured it out yet, my horses are spoiled. 🙂

If you’ve read my past blogs, you’ll know this semester has been quite a bit different than last semester.  At 18 hours, commuting, working, and just trying to stay afloat, it’s been stressful to say the least.  The upcoming two weeks probably aren’t going to be much different, but I do feel better going into these final weeks than I thought I would at the beginning of the semester.  I have three labs to wrap up, a presentation/report to give, lots of homework, and studying galore for finals, but then before I know it, it will all be over!  Fortunately, I don’t have more than one final on any given day, so it won’t be too unbearable (I hope), and by May 6 at 11:59 p.m., I must have completed everything with my online class and will be done with my second semester of college.  It’s hard to believe that when I return in August, I’ll be a sophomore.  Note to self: time flies by much faster than you think!

Good luck to everyone with finals…hang in there, you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump away!

Blessings,

~Anna

When you go to college, keep this in mind:  the breaks are a lie.

You’ll rarely get a homework-free break.  Even if the teacher gives you an assignment that wouldn’t be due until a month later, that still puts pressure on you.  It plants a nagging seed in your brain that bugs you, whispering, “You should be working on meeeee~.”

Just wanted to throw that out there so that some of you would develop better time-management skills than I have.

Hi, everyone!

Are you as excited as I am about spring break?  Honestly for me, this semester has been quite stressful and really busy.  I’ve not been able to spend time doing anything other than work, class, homework, or (a little bit) of sleep, and quite frankly, that’s not good for my physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual health.  So for me, spring break is going to be a small opportunity for much-needed decompression and “me time”.  I say small because I’m going to spend a large chunk of break working on a presentation, four or five papers, regular reading/homework for several of my classes, and discussion boards/quizzes/a test for my eight-week online class that just started.  I remain hopeful that there will be a few spare moments, though, to get well-rested, spend a little quality time with my family and friends, and maybe even catch up on pleasure reading or go see Beauty and the Beast.  I’m sure many of you have a much more exciting, enjoyable break planned, but I am grateful for the week off if for no other reason than to catch up on many, many things!  I’m not sure I’d be able to feasibly get through the rest of the semester if I didn’t have spring break on the horizon!

In the meantime, I’m about halfway through the week…or a test, three labs, a presentation, and four regular class periods away from “freedom”!  I’m enjoying the cold weather and snow, though.  See my picture below of my Monday drive to Fontbonne…the snow is so pretty.

Happy spring break — stay safe and enjoy your time off!

Getting the Job Done

by Alumni Posts April 13, 2016

Hey there Griffins! Okay, so I’m sure that all of us have a point in the semester where you’re just like blah, and you would rather draw tiny 3D cubes in the corner of your notes. If you’ve ever wondered how to stay focused on studying for that test or writing that paper, I have […]

Alleviate Stress as the Semester Ends

by Alumni Posts November 16, 2015

1. Keep active! Walking or doing yoga or going to the gym is a great way to alleviate stress as the burden of finals and research papers comes nearer in the next few weeks. Exercise means endorphins and endorphins make you happy!!! 2. Sleep. Getting at least 8 hours of sleep will prevent you from […]

Was I Wrong?

by DeMarcus October 6, 2015

Lately I think my friends think that I’ve been ignoring them, which isn’t the case. I have just been trying to adjust to my new major and have a mind of my own. Since August 9th, we have spent almost every waking moment together. By any means this isn’t a bad thing, I was just starting […]

A Word of Advice

by Fontbonne University October 6, 2015

For everyone starting college for the first time (especially those right out of high school), it can seem like an overwhelming experience. You have harder classes, a larger homework load, and, more importantly, a lot more freedom. It can be very easy to get swept up in the social life of college while trying to […]
