When we were little, the last thing we wanted to do was take a nap. Now we can’t imagine a day without napping in our favorite spot. But “resting your eyes” may actually be more harmful than helpful.
You don’t care. Well, maybe a little bit but it’s hard to care about some things with less than a month left. But there are ways to properly not care without hurting someone’s feelings or hurting your chances to keep up with schoolwork.
Remember when diaries and journals were all the rage in middle school? Looking back, you may be a tad embarrassed that you even wrote something in strawberry-scented gel pen. But before you toss that Lisa Frank notebook, give journaling another chance by trying a food journal.
You’ve already heard the same thing from the Career Services office: have your resume and cover letter drafts ready so you can zip through job applications. But every once in a while, a curveballs that you didn’t expect to find during the job search hits you.
It’s easy to disregard urine as waste because you flush it down the toilet every single day. But your urine is a lot more valuable than you think, so it’s time to take another look at the toilet bowl.
Now that the bigger career fairs of the year are over, it’s time to look back and remember every painstakingly awkward and triumphant detail. The emotional stages of career fairs differ for everybody but it all starts the same way:
Leggings are your besties. They’re there for you no matter what occasion: a concert, class, the gym, hanging out with friends and whatever else you deem their stretchiness appropriate for. Sometimes, though, it’s time to step up your leggings game with something different: stained glass print.
Weight lifting can be one of life’s great mysteries. Do you need to grunt a lot when you lift? Should you wear those cool looking gloves? What exactly is powerlifting? Should you be doing it?
When the going gets tough and the dancers have to keep going, mail call keeps them sane and inspired. Here are some mail call moments that captured the importance of those envelopes.
When you’re on the floor at THON, it’s easy to overlook the smaller details (there’s a lot of neon going on, so if you don’t see spots before your eyes, that’s an accomplishment). We love the small things in life so we took to the floor to spot our favorite nail designs.
Whether you’re on the floor for all 46 hours or just visiting for a short while, it’s important to stay healthy while you’re inside the BJC this weekend. Here are a few tips just for you no matter what you’re actually doing during THON.
We’re less than a week away from THON and a lot of us are getting pumped for the moment when we begin the trek to the BJC. If someone is new to Penn State, isn’t part of THON in any way or just doesn’t know, it can be hard to explain. So here are 10 things you need to know about THON.
All a THON dancer wants for THON mail time is… a lot of stuff actually. Every dancer is different and their wants and needs can range from the practical, to the silly, to the inspirational to the weird. For those of you who are still wondering what to get, here are a few tips.
Money matters can be scary. There’s taxes, loans, debt, mortgages, rent (and don’t even get me started on those debit and credit cards). Not understanding money can (and will) matter a lot though, especially if you happen to be a woman. So how can you stay ahead and not sink into a pit of financial despair?
It’s too easy to have way too much Penn State gear. From the face tattoos for game day to the t-shirts that are almost impossible to resist getting in every neon color (guilty), you will come to a day when you’re reppin’ your school in every way possible. But how much is too much?
College is supposed to be a time of growing up (whatever that actually means) and changing into our adult selves so we can go forth and be productive members of society after we leave Penn State. But sometimes growing up may have some casualties, namely your stuffed animals.
By now, a lot of us (especially those graduating seniors) think we’ve seen it all at Penn State or in State College: the mountains, the classrooms, downtown and all the odd things you happen to see there. I hate to tell you this but…you missed one: the caves. Luckily, the Nittany Grotto Caving Club has you covered.
Let’s just be real here: your vagina is important. Seriously. You need that thing. In order to keep it healthy and fabulous, it needs some maintenance to keep everything down there running smoothly. And one of those things is the somewhat-mysterious Pap smear.
Reality will be knocking a tad too early for those getting ready to graduate in a few short months (cue the dramatic music). Even though some of us have already found a job (lucky) or have other plans after walking across the stage, the rest of us are facing our computer screens looking for that first real person job.
In the spirit of giving, many of us have no idea what to give to other people (seriously, people can be super picky). But this holiday season, maybe the best thing to give to someone is support if they come out to their family and friends over winter break.
