It’s A Wrap!

by DeMarcus on August 8, 2016

in College Life

The summer has officially come to an end. My Griffin 101 duties have ended as well as my status as a summer RA. This summer has truly been an adventure. Hanging out with with friends, going to Delaware, and finally piecing together a podcast that I’ve been working on for over a year. To see the hard work pay off is incredible; especially when you’re working with friends that support your ideas and goals even when they seem hazy at first. My Griffin 101 Team has showed me that confidence is key in any situation, Residence Life has taught me how to be more accommodating for other people and that everything doesn’t go as planned. Lastly, I’ve learned from my “roommates” that it’s okay to treat yourself to a night out on the town every once in a while…or every other weekend. All in all the summer sixteen was a success and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. Now, I am preparing for my senior year and all it has to offer.

See you all in a week!

I am excited to return to Fontbonne. I can’t wait for all the events that are planned for this year. FAB decided to have less events in the future so that they can be bigger. The sibz weekend is very different and it is oriented towards the whole family instead of just siblings. We will also have some movie nights where we have the entire theatre reserved just for us. We also have the annual fall festival and dueling pianos. My course schedule will be different this year. Unfortunately I have class all 5 days a week, however, I am doing an internship with lifework systems. I can do all of the work online. I also was hired for another job. I am going to be a FLIT member and working with Vinny.

However, I am not quite ready to return yet, I still have fun things to do this summer. I want to see the new Ice Age movie and Bad Moms. A friend and I plan on going to Grant’s farm and hopefully Incredible Pizza. It is also my parents’ 25th anniversary. I plan on making them a sand castle cake made of edible sand, teddy grahams, and waffle cones. I will use vanilla wafers and candy pearls to make oysters.

Holiday World

by Patricia on August 2, 2016

in Extracurricular

Last week I went to Holiday world in Santa Clause, Indiana. It is a theme park that incorporates Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and July 4th. It also has a huge water park; I went there first. Unfortunately it rained and we had to eat standing under an eating area. After it cleared, we went on the mammoth, which is a roller coaster water slide. We went to another water coaster called the Wildebeest. After spending most of the day at the water park, we went on the Voyage, which is the biggest roller coaster they have. It was located in the Thanksgiving area. We visited the Halloween area and rode the Raven and the Legend. For dinner, we went to a restaurant located in the Christmas area. We ate pizza under the mistletoe while listening to Christmas music. I also visited the gift shop and bought mistletoe and even went to Mrs. Clause’s Bakery. For dessert, we went to the July 4th area and got blue ice cream at a stand named Utterly Blue Ice Cream.

The reason I enjoy this place better than Six Flags is because it is clean, has a bigger waterpark, and better prices. You get free soda and sunscreen. The waterpark stays open until 7 as opposed to 6 and there is no useless safety break every 40 min. I just wish it was closer!

4th of July

by Patricia on July 15, 2016

in Uncategorized

This 4th of July was lots of fun! On Friday we visited our cousin in Wisconsin. We went to her house and had a BBQ. She has a 2-year-old son that was very outgoing. The hotel was nice too. It had a big pool and French toast and cinnamon rolls for breakfast. The next day we went to see my cousin and aunt in Chicago. We went to her house and she had a nice lunch planned for us. Then went went downtown and explored the city and went to an Asian restaurant called Joyee. We also visited the Palmer house which is a very luxurious hotel. We got to ride the L (train) to the city. It had 100 different drinks. I had a pomegranate icee with ice cream. The next day we swam at the beach during the day and watched fireworks at night.

My aunt’s house is over 100 years old. It was made for little people. The ceiling is really low, I had to bend over several times. The bathrooms are very small and the stairs are very hard to walk up. The stairs are smaller than your feet. If you walk up too fast, you will fall. In the backyard there is a door like the house from the wizard of oz. It is slanted from the ground and props open, leading to the basement. This was originally a farm house but it’s not anymore. Now its in the middle of the city!

While we haven’t quite reached the summer solstice just yet, some friends from Room 316 and I have started to plan for next summer. We were watching “Gossip Girl” season 2 when Blair was returning back home to the Hamptons with her new boyfriend, while Chuck Bass was waiting for her with a bouquet of […]

Griffin 101

by DeMarcus June 27, 2016

Griffin 101 has been amazing so far! The team members that I am working with are unique in their own way but most importantly, we work well with one another. So far, each Griffin 101 Leader has exceeded my expectations, and I know that this program will be in good hands after I graduate Fontbonne […]

Room 316

by DeMarcus June 27, 2016

Room 316 has served as the residential hub for most of the summer residents this far. Before it became a residential hub, it was just a normal apartment on the third floor of the Fine Arts building, also known as Southwest. A little over a month ago, I moved into this apartment with the expectation […]

My Birthday

by Patricia June 23, 2016

In the past, I have usually been out of town for my birthday. But this year I stayed in St. Louis. It was a great fun-filled day. First I went to the water park at Six Flags. I’ll have to remember to go there in the morning because it was least crowded and we were […]
