As the year is ending and summer is so close I can taste it! Only two exams, one presentation, and I am home free! This year has been a year full of learning and new experiences. From my first semester at a completely different college to ending my freshman year here at Fontbonne, it has most certainly been an interesting ride. I have grown a lot this year by figuring out what I really want to do with my life and the field of work I would like to end up in. This summer I am looking forward to sinking my teeth into a great new internship, taking a summer course, and of course spending some much needed time by the pool. I cannot wait to get some R&R after exams, but my summer to do list is quite lengthy and I cannot wait to get started. During the school year I never get to read as much as I would like to, summer is the perfect time to really get a hold of my reading list. My summer bucket list includes:

  1. Spontaneous road trips with friends!
  2. Become more of a religious yoga goer
  3. Redecorate and Reorganize
  4. Plan a brunch- hydrangeas and all
  5. COUNTRY CONCERTS- they are the best, even if you do not like country music the atmosphere is intoxicating! Get a group of friends together and go!!
  6. Leave my phone at home- I must be crazy but this summer I really want to try to leave my life source aka cell phone at home. If I am with my friends than I do not have to update anyone because they will all be there and if I run into an emergency I am positive someone in the group will have their phone.

This summer I want to detox and refocus to better prepare myself for next year. One semester down and many more to go, but I am so excited to continue this adventure here at Fontbonne!

When you’re a college student April is probably the worst month of the whole year. April is the last month before you’re released from summer, meaning that at this point you have multiple papers to finish, exams to study for, trying to maneuver your next year schedule, housing applications, and applying to every summer job/internship available in your area, while everyone keeps asking about your summer plans. At this point, you can’t even find time to go for a run or a quick coffee at your favorite spot.  You thought last year senioritis was bad, well springitis is even worse!

Here are some questions that will most likely  recognize if you have springitis:

  • Should I do my homework? Or should I lay out in the 80 degree weather?
  • Did the teacher say group project?
    • How am I supposed to gather a group of several people, who only want to think about summer. HOW!
  • How many days left until I can leave?
  • How many miles away is the beach?
  • 20 Days. (5 minutes later) is it still 20 days?
  • Excuse me, professor, what is your attendance policy?

Springitis is a real issue. Repeat: REAL ISSUE. If you haven’t been affected by springitis I advise you to remain in the library, focused, and with a mask on. Unfortunately, I have come down with springitis, and my doctor prescribed ice cream, enjoying the weather, and the occasional study session. For those who haven’t felt the effect of summer being right around the corner, save yourself before it’s too late, and find a cure for the rest of us.

The important of service….. and cue the daydream. This was a routine discussion facilitated in my theology classes in high school or at the one too many required talks that my high school had. Service was preached day in and day out, and we were expected to fulfill service requirements from semester to semester. Even though I dreaded the required meetings, my love of service developed. Service became so much more than a chore for me, but such a gift. The importance of service to me is performing small acts with great love, being a rainbow in someone’s clouds. One of the best service experiences I had was my junior year of high school when I worked at a camp that was specifically designed for individuals with different levels of ability. It was a pleasure getting to know the campers and experiencing their joy.

Today, I often find that I don’t do enough to give back. And I’ve been working to change that. Too busy, too stressed, too whatever.

 The truth is that we truly have so much to give, more than we think and realize. We also have so much to be thankful for.  Servicing others in a time of need is just as important as anything else that takes priority on your to do list.

It has been  pouring rain here in STL, so that means no exploring the city, but  just really focusing on work. When I am working on either blog related things, school, or personal I have to have music on in the background. I love listening to music either while I am writing emails, writing, or just chilling, music helps me to focus and concentrate. My playlists are made up of  a random mix of sappy love songs, depressing songs, feel good music, and just some of my old favorites. I’m not much of a music guru, or a vinyl record collector, I actually like to listen to the same songs over and over again when I’m working (weird) but here’s a mix of my favorites – a little Ellie Goulding, Broods, John Legend, Adele, and sorry but I love J. Biebs. I also love love some classic Dad Rock, ya know the oldies? Also Amy Winehouse can do absolutely no wrong in my book, and LaLa Land is currently a favorite album to listen to! Music is something that I use to help me either concentrate or de-stress.  We all have de-stressing “secret weapons” that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, music is one of my ways to de-stress. Whether it is having a great playlist to jam to in the car, dance to, or study to- music is much welcomed noise for me, some background hums is always enjoyed.

Spring Break!!!

by Cecelia March 28, 2017

Spring Break Hollywood has told way to many of us that spring break requires a beautiful beach, huge group of friends, and too many nights that end in: “what happened?”. The reality is that most spring breaks do not happen like that, and that is OKAY! My spring break consisted of me and my best […]

Fueling Your Fire

by Cecelia March 13, 2017

What am I passionate about? If we are being honest, my passions have changed throughout my life. When I was little, my passion was finding the missing shoe for my barbie, or scoring a goal at my little league soccer game. As I grew my passion became about winning the science fair, and or trying to […]

It may seem that you just unpacked all of your new clothes that you got from your parents at Christmas and reorganized your folders for second semester, but guess what!? You are already half-way through the term, and that can only mean one thing: Midterms! Although, midterms can lead some to a breakdown, mostly due to […]

What does black history month mean to me?

by Cecelia February 22, 2017

Black history month means to me a time dedicated to see what African Americans have accomplished and take time out of the year to recognize what people from past generations had fought for. Black history is a time of celebrating, and thanking African Americans for teaching us what it means to hope, a life lesson […]

What am I most excited for?

by Cecelia February 20, 2017

This weather we have been having makes me so so happy! The 60-70 degree weather is to die for, and I can’t wait until it is here all the time. This kind of weather makes the wait for spring a little unbearable, and I cannot wait. The April flowers are so gorgeous, and St. Louis […]
