Powerball: Penn State Style

What would a Penn State student do with 1.3 billion dollars?

Powerball: Penn State Style

As of this weekend, the Powerball is at a whopping 1.3 billion dollars. In reality, once taxes are taken out, the cash value is 806 million dollars which is still no chump change. For any winner it could be a huge change in lifestyle, but as a Penn State student there is a long list of possibilities to put that money towards. If you don't drop out, you could start by using it for tuition and the list goes on and on. Starting with the more obvious things you'd use the money for…

1. Get a security guard, financial advisor, and attorney.

2. Upgrade the pool with waterslides and hot tubs.

3. Sorority girls could finally have houses.

4. And you cannot forget the chefs.

5. Pokies every single night.

6. You can never have enough Champagne .

7. Pay for all your friends’ tuitions and student loans.

8. Fraternities would get remodeled and doubled in size.

9. They would all have fences the size of DU’s.

10. They would all have pools for daylong season.

11. And lots of moon bounces.

12. Buy a Lamborghini (or a few) to fit in with the car crowd.

13. Chipotle. All day, everyday. For everyone.

14. Creamery Ice Cream by the tons.

15. Tailgates would be ten times better.

16. Catered food.

17. You could have your own personal driver to Fratland. (No more walk of shames)

18. Hold sick concerts every single weekend.

19. Add seats to Beaver Stadium to beat out Michigan for the largest stadium.

20. Replace the JoePa statue.

21. Pay your rent.

22. Or buy out the whole floor.

23. Or the whole building.

24. Endless Liontutors, because with all that money you wouldn't go to class.

25. Bring back Levels.

26. Rent a new bar every night.

27. No more Natty, Vlad, or Russe…EVER again.

28. Cleaning services for after all your crazy parties.

29. Pay neighbors for no noise complaints.

30. And buy them some nice Bose headphones.

31. Puppies. Lots of puppies.

32. Someone to do all our laundry.

33. A different color hover board for every day of the week.

34. Put a Wawa in place of the Sheetz.

35. Private jet to get to school and anywhere else for the weekend.

36. All the away football tickets for you and your friends.

37. Season tickets for generations.

38. Pay for spring break in PV for all your friends.

39. Or rent an island for everyone instead.

40. With a super yacht.

41. Renovate the White Building.

42. Then build your own gym.

43. Finally, matching the THON total.

44. Oh and upgrading the BJC food.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
