Thanksgiving Break

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.
  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!!



Plans for Turkey Day!

Is it just me or is this semester flying by? It’s that time of the semester where I have tests at least once a week.  That’s why I can’t wait for Thanksgiving break! For Thanksgiving, all my siblings are coming together to celebrate.  I am excited to see my sister that is six months pregnant with her first child! Another exciting thing about break is that I turn 21 the day before Thanksgiving!  Even though Thanksgiving is mostly known for the perfectly brown and juicy turkey, the buttery mashed potatoes, the crunchy green bean casserole, and of course the pies, I am very thankful for all my family and friends, the ability to go to Fontbonne, and having wonderful professors.  My question to you is what are you looking forward to during break and what are you most thankful for?


The thanksgiving break is coming, but that also means that our finals week is coming.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays in the United States, because it means family gathering. It’s like the Lunar Chinese New Year in Taiwan. However, it’s sad that the final week of the semester is coming as well. Therefore, there are a lot of projects and assignments that are due, but I think it’s the process to be a student, learn by writing, reading, speaking, and doing. I believe all the process is to prepare me to be a more successful person in the future. I’d like to share a Chinese phrase to encourage my blog readers:

The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step(Lao Tzu).

千里之行, 始於足下


So close!

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 […]

“I’m just having the worst day…” “That man in there is going to have to learn how to walk again without a leg, and the woman down in 501, she’s going to be told that she has stage four pancreatic cancer.  You’re not having the worst day.” The above dialogue is from my new televised addiction, […]

Typically, Fridays are  very hectic days for me. I have Calculus in the morning, and then go straight to Brentwood Middle School to observe 7th grade math, then I usually have about two hours before I have to go to work. Last week, I got really lucky and not only had Friday night off work, […]
