The Meadow

I’m very excited for this Friday, because it is the annual Springfest at Fontbonne. This is a day full of performances and activities, which changes a little year to year. This is one of the biggest, most talked about events of the year, which I have been looking forward to for a long time. It is always a great way to celebrate the end of the school year and end it with a bang. This year, Springfest starts out with a performance by indie folk artist Owen Pye. He was on campus earlier this semester during the coffee house night, where he played guitar and sang his own songs. I am glad to have him back.

After that, there is going to be a fashion show, which is produced by the Fashion Promotions class in my beloved Fashion Merchandising department. I am thrilled to say that I am a model in the show. During my first two years at Fontbonne, I have helped dress models and worked behind the scenes for a couple shows, which was a lot of fun. But, I thought I’d try something different and participate as a model. I was a little nervous at first, but I am proud to say that the rehearsals have been going well.

Next, there will be a live-band karaoke in the late afternoon. I am a huge fan of karaoke, so you can count on me to be there the whole time hogging the microphone. How awesome will it be to perform with a live band?! Following this, dinner will be served while the next performers set up for their show. These musicians include Tyler Hilton from the show One Tree Hill and Ryan Cabrera from the show The Hills. These guys were big when I was in middle school, so it will be fun to take a little trip down memory lane. After the show, I am hoping to get pictures with them and have my CD’s signed. Being a huge fan of pop culture, all the events at Springfest this year are right up my alley. The performances will take place outside Medaille Hall in the meadow, so let’s pray for good weather! Regardless, Springfest 2013 is sure to be a hit. I know I’m ready for it!

Well, I was having some technical difficulties uploading a photo, but just know that I have taken plenty of pictures of my feet, and the beautiful Fontbonne campus in the background while I am laying one one of the four hammocks in the meadow. These were a new addition this year. We started with only two, and I guess they saw how popular they were among students and they had two more! They are very relaxing, and everyone loves them! I feel like more people are outside, whether they are doing homework or just hanging out between classes, even if they are not one of the lucky few who get to be on the hammocks. I like to hang out with my friends on them, take quick naps, or just have somewhere to go between classes to just enjoy being outside. They were a terrific idea and I am really glad they are out in the meadow!

My favorite place is the meadow. It is where a lot of us students hang out. We have movie nights there and club sign ups. It has hammocks which is awesome!
