Summer

I am ready for this semester to be over. This time I had 3 group projects and 2 papers to write. On top of all that I have to study for 3 exams! Fortunately I do not have class this Friday and I am completely finished by next Friday. There is a raffle on Monday and I think that I have a good chance of winning. It is based on the number of seminars that I completed. I figured that most people would blow it off, since you have to commit to it every week. If I win, I will get $500. I deliberately did not make plans for this money because if I don’t win, I’ll just be more disappointed.

Then I have a week off to have fun! On May 12 is when I start my job at Nordstrom. I am going to be a sales associate. I hope that I can do well. I will be making $10 an hour plus commission! That is a lot of money for me since I used to work at McDonalds and get paid $8.75 an hour. I plan on saving a lot of the money that I make this summer and not spending it all.

Tips for Summer!

by Taylor on April 18, 2016

in College Life

Hey guys! As you all know, (and are most likely counting down every second to) summer is almost here! In less than a month, we can all wave goodbye to another year and being summer 2k16! While it’s important to relax and decompress from your year at school, don’t forget that summer is the perfect time to be productive and do things that will propel you into your awesome future awaiting you! Here are a few suggestions of things that you could consider doing this summer instead of just laying around:

  1. Go to summer school– I know, I know. Why on earth would you spend even a second sitting in a classroom this summer when that’s all you’ve done all year? I always think the same thing. However, summer is the perfect time to either take that class that you couldn’t fit into your schedule during the school year because it required too much time or studying. I use summer to take my harder classes because I can focus on just that class as opposed to that and 4 other classes. I find it easier to study and stay motivated in the summer. Or, you could take classes in the summer to get ahead so that your course load during the year is lighter.
  2. Get experience– Summer is literally the best time to gain all the experience that grad schools/jobs want you to have when you graduate but never seem to actually have time to get. Want to go to med school? Use the summer to volunteer at hospitals or participate in undergrad research that med schools with inevitably require you to have. Going into finance? Try to score that internship at a local firm to give you real life experience in the job setting you want to be a part of. Trying to get a dietetic internship? Spend the summer working at Fontbonne’s Camp F.R.E.S.H. or at volunteering at local food banks to get the dietetic experience that future internship preceptors want to see filling up your resume. Opportunities like these exist everywhere, you just need to find them. Ask your professors and advisors for help. They often have plenty of ideas waiting for students to take
  3. Work-If school, volunteering, or internships are not in your plans this summer, that’s fine! Work instead. No matter what job you have, you will be getting benefits. Not only will having a job give you something to do everyday and cash to spend, but it will also teach you valuable things like working on a team, time management, and responsibility that you can carry with you through life.

What are your plans this summer? Make it a good one!

This week has been so much fun! Last week we were in universal studios, and this week we went to St. George island and rented a house. Everyday I went surfing. I also celebrated my 21st birthday. My dad got me a bunch of vodka in different flavors. We also went to a restaurant called the Blue Parrot and I got a drink called Orange Dreamsicle. It was spiked with rum. My mom and I did some shopping, and I bought some turtle shells. We also went kayaking in our back yard and went crabbing!

If I lived in the south by the ocean, I would definitely be a surfer. Every time we go to Florida, I spend most of the time surfing. I really like the waves, and I could do it all day long. If I lived in the south I would also go scuba diving and I would love to ride with the dolphins. I would also collect seashells and sand dollars and make the same souvenirs you see in gift shops!

2nd week of my trip

by Patricia June 29, 2015

During the second week in Florida, we rented a house on St. George Island. It had a really, really long dock that we used for fishing, crabbing, and kayaking. The kayaking was a little hard, since I had never done it before. But I spent most of my time at the beach. I love to surf […]
