You guys honestly have no idea how much my heart is being warmed by the second part of the THON Children’s Variety hour. I love this. I really, really do.
I’m so happy the OS section of press row just wants to sing tonight. Singing is good for the soul.
The press can’t even get into the BJC for THON. So much for my 10p-6am shift. It looks like I’m now pulling the 1130ish-end of THON shift.
But hey, I can’t complain. I’ll just be crying unconsolably by the end of THON! It’s worth it. This is the last year I can even do this.
While helping OS set up today, I got to see the giant diamond above the stage rise up to its current place. That was pretty cool.
You know what’s even cooler? Being at THON during the first day, and just taking in all of the kindness, love, and happiness in the BJC :)
I cannot wait to be at THON again this year. It’s an absolutely mesmerizing thing. I cannot wait to sit on press row and cover this wonderful event again. It’s all FTK!
Yeah, so I wrote this for OS on Friday. I wrote it in an incredibly sarcastic tone, and made it super snarky.
The only downfall? Nobody understands my sense of sarcasm. The opinions of these “fashion faux pas” are not solely my own. They were pooled together by the staff.
Because of that, the comments section is incredibly hilarious. I got a message from one of the OS guys saying it was harsh over the weekend, and that I should brace myself for reading them. I did. I laughed. They weren’t as bad as I thought they’d be! And here’s to you, girl who wonders what I actually wear on a regular basis. That comment made me laugh the most.
Regardless of all that, I’m proud of this post. I don’t care what people think about it (or my fashion sense). All that matters is that a.) some of these trends do tend to bother me, b.) this is one of the few snarky pieces I’ve actually written for the site (since my tone is mostly serious), and c.) PEOPLE CLEARLY DON’T HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR.
I’m not actually going to walk up to you if I see you in any of the offending ensembles and bitch you out for what you’re wearing. I might chuckle in my head, but I’m not going to act like the Fashion Police.
On that note, I’m going to come out and say the following: I own a few animal hats with ears. I’m five years old and love wearing them. I don’t wear them out to class because I don’t want hat hair. I own a pair of Uggs, and as much as I despise them, they’re hella comfy. I think it’s the last year I’m going to have a pair of the boots, just because mine are four years old and are pretty worn (but not to the point of being disgusting). They’re black, have a zipper in the back, and are thinner than regular Uggs. I also don’t wear them out in the snow/rain. That’s just stupid. I also don’t wear them with leggings as pants. I don’t wear leggings as pants unless I’m going to fencing class. AND THEN I CHANGE OUT OF THEM AFTERWARD.
Oh yes. And bubble umbrellas are still stupid, regardless or not if you can see out of them. I WILL RUN INTO PEOPLE ALL I WANT WITH MY NON-BUBBLE UMBRELLA. DEAL WITH IT.
This past weekend, two Penn State fencers traveled to Paris, where they fenced for Team USA on the men’s foil team. From there, they brought home the first gold medal ever in their event!
It’s now whiteboard official. I graduate in 115 days. Wow.
IT’S MY LAST FIRST DAY OF CLASSES EVER.
I’m not sure if I’m ready for my winter break to end. I mean…I’m gonna be starting my final semester at Penn State, I’ve filed my intent to graduate (and got my name changed on my diploma because they messed it up…), and it’s going to be a big semester for me.
So why am I sitting over here like this?
I think it’s the emotion of being a senior about to graduate. Maybe. Possibly. Yep.
I just activated my intent to graduate in the spring.
This is real life. I am graduating from Penn State on May 4th.
THE WHITE PANDA IS COMING TO PSU.
Can we just talk about how excited I am for this? BECAUSE I’M HELLA EXCITED. However, I could care less for Asher Roth. BUT THE WHITE PANDA! YEAH!

Maybe I’ll win the lottery. That’d be nice.
But in all reality, I probably won’t, and that’s okay, because I’m going to see Frank Warren of PostSecret next Monday (and cover it for OS)! I’ve waited years to see him speak, and now I get a chance to see him…for free! SPA, I’m quite fond of your speaker series this semester.
