What are your plans over winter break? Anything fun? My plans are quite simple. I’m staying home and spending some time with family and friends. I haven’t seen many of friends since summer because we are all at different schools, so the long break gives us time to catch up and hang out with one another. I can’t wait to see them!
Along with catching up with family and friends, I plan to relax at home doing some of my favorite things which include: watching the classic Christmas movies, baking delicious treats and drinking an abundance of hot chocolate! (You can’t end winter break without doing at least one of those!)
I’m also going to try and catch up on some sleep too because I don’t think I’ll be sleeping much during the spring semester since I’ll be working. I’ll be working at an accounting firm during tax season which is when accounting firms are their busiest.
I hope everyone has a good winter break!
It’s hard to believe that the holiday season came and went so quickly. It’s even harder to imagine that I’m finally back in school working through my final semester of my undergraduate education. Before we jump right in to the semester, though, I’d like to share some of my favorite photographical memories from this past winter break.
Posing for a picture with Dad and Cocoa Dixie before opening presents on Christmas morning!!
Gearing up for the 2014 Cardinals Baseball season. Spring training will be here before we know it!!
Taking a break from skating at Steinberg with an old friend. (And Thomas, for the record, I was skating – I was NOT just going off your momentum!!)
Attending my first-ever St. Louis Blues Hockey game!! It was a great time despite the incident revolving around the spilling of the 32-ounce soda I had just purchased at the concession stand. I’m just so happy I bought the refillable cup!!
What has seemed like the longest, most difficult semester of my life…is finally coming to an end! As my final day of Thanksgiving break is beginning, I am realizing that once I get back I only have two weeks left! That’s just crazy! Although two weeks is a short time, I do have a lot to get done within that time, so I can’t be blinded by how close winter break is, I need to plow through the rest of the work and not just quit! Even knowing the amount of work these next two weeks are going to be, I still find it hard not to be excited. After I finish my final exam on Thursday December 6th, I will have five weeks of no classes! I’m sure after about two weeks it will begin to feel too long, but five weeks off sounds great right about now!
Winter break is so close! … Yet so far…
I always love the beginning of a new semester because it’s a chance to start new and fresh. I like getting all new classes, it really makes learning more interesting. The long winter break was definitely refreshing and readied me for this new semester. Waking up for my 8 AM class however, wasn’t too easy. But I know with time it will get easier, hopefully. With this new semester I hope to try harder in my classes, eat healthier, and work out more. Hopefully I can keep up with my new semester goals! I’m also hoping for some snow this semester! So far we’ve had a pretty mild winter, and I’m kind of hoping for maybe a snow day or two, but we’ll see how that turns out. :] Overall I’m excited to be back at Fontbonne and to have an awesome second semester! Good luck to all my fellow students! :]
