Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I hope everyone is having a great day with their friends and families. Unfortunately, I did not get to leave campus to go home this year for break, but that’s okay because I’ve found several ways to still have an awesome Thanksgiving! I know I’m not the only one who stayed here for the holiday, and I just want share some tips for having a fun break even if you don’t get to leave.

Take everyone up on offers for Thanksgiving dinner– Once all my St. Louis native friends found out that I would be staying on campus today, they all felt sorry for me and invited me to their family’s Thanksgiving dinners. I got at least 5 invites, so I basically have an entire day of eating lined up, which I am pumped about. It’s also fun to hang out with other people’s families and see how they interact. If someone offers you a totally free meal and the opportunity to hang out with them and their crazy/fun family, take them up on it! You still get to eat, and you’re not sitting in your room alone feeling sorry for yourself that you’re not home.

Find other people stranded on campus and hang out- Even though campus is mostly deserted (and a little bit creepy quiet honestly) you are not the only one around. There are always about 15-20 students who stay over breaks. Find them and do something! You can bond over your mutual boredom. It’s a great opportunity to make friends, and what else do you have to do on this quiet campus anyway?

Do your laundry- I know, I know. This sounds like a super boring tip, but we all know the struggle of 150 students trying to share 4 washers/dryers per building. Now is your moment where no one has left their gross clothes in the washer for the past 3 hours, and you reallyyyy need clean underwear, so you have to hurriedly take them out and put your clothes in before they get back and catch you in the act and get all mad that you’re touching their stuff. Been there. Avoid that now and do laundry while no no one is here.

Stay off of social media- The fear of missing out is so real when you’re sitting on your empty campus and your siblings and cousins keep sending you hilarious snap chats of Thanksgiving dinner back home. Ignore them for now, and find other things to do to entertain/distract yourself. It’s easy to feel sad and miserable when you’re comparing your day to the glamorized version’s of everyone else’s on social media. Remember that most of those posts are fake, and nobody is ever having as much fun on their snap chat stories as they want the world to think. Also, don’t forget to feel #blessed that the one perk of not being home for dinner is getting to dodge awkward and inappropriate questions from extended family members about your personal and or/romantic life. Bet you never see those on your sister’s Snapchat.

Happy Holidays, Fontbonne! Enjoy your break, and I’ll see you all when you get back!

In less than a week, it will be Thanksgiving! Where did the year go? Even though some of us live a fast-paced life, let’s take a minute to stop and reflect on what we are thankful for. Personally for me, there are several things. First and foremost, health. I am fortunate enough to wake up every morning and know that I am in good health – and I do not take that for granted. I know that there are people in the world that are less fortunate than I am in this regard. Second, the people around me. I have associated myself with some great people; some I communicate with on a daily basis, and others, I have not spoken with in years. Fantastic people none the less. Next, there is the education that I am receiving. I am glad that I have chosen Fontbonne to continue my education. Not only that, but also receive a generous scholarship this semester. Keep in mind, no matter if life is or is not going according to plan, there is always something that everyone is grateful for. Until next time, stay classy!

  1. Spend time with family and friends.
  2. Try to make a recipe for Thanksgiving whether that is a dessert or side dish.
  3. RELAX, RELAX, RELAX!
  4. Do some sort of exercise, whether that is a short walk or playing Twister with the family just to work off some of that food.
  5. Remind yourself that we are almost done with this semester!!

Thank You Note(s)

by Morgan on November 21, 2016

in College Life

Hi everyone! We are getting very close to the final stretch of the semester, so please do your best and try to finish strong!! We’ve made it this far, so I know all of you have enough strength to finish out as strongly as you can! But back to more important things at hand: Thanksgiving. 1 week away. We are days away from Thanksgiving Break, and I couldn’t be more excited. My favorite things about Thanksgiving include all of the food that is socially acceptable to eat all in one day, when everyone talks about what they’re thankful for, and all of our families coming together for this holiday; and then shortly after for Christmas, but that’s another story.

I am thankful for my family because of how supportive they are of me. I know I don’t come home as they would probably like, despite me being 30 minutes away from home, but they understand all of the things that I have going on every week. I love them too much for words and I cannot wait to be with them for  Thanksgiving next week! Absence absolutely makes the heart grow fonder.

I am also thankful for all of the friends that I have made at Fontbonne, and you all know who you are. I never imagined having such amazing friends that would make not being at school so difficult. I know Thanksgiving Break is a tease for the month long Christmas Break, but we saw each other practically every day for an entire semester; Christmas Break’s got nothing on us. I love all of you (just like my family, too much for words to express) and couldn’t imagine my life without you at school because it most definitely would be crazy.

Sorry for the sappy post, but I haven’t had one in a while, so ENJOY! I hope you all have a wonderful, delicious, and safe Thanksgiving Break; and don’t do too much homework because you can use Ross’s favorite excuse:

we-were-on-a-break

Thanks again everyone!

Give Thanks.

by Jess November 17, 2016

Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday (Halloween trumps all). I can be inclined to negativity, but something about this time of year seems to bring out all of the positive energy I have. Maybe it’s because I’m constantly thinking about the delicious food that I get to consume at the end of the month, or […]

Why Give Thanks?

by Lauren November 17, 2016

I always have a lot to be thankful for. But this year was especially trying, as I’m sure it was for many of us. There are lots of different reasons. Some people are losing hope in a world where there is so much injustice. What better way to combat all the ugliness and bitterness than […]
