If you haven't done 7/10 of these things, do you really go to Penn State?

You've had Canyon Pizza at 2AM

Picture this: You and your friends have had a long night out and you're dying to eat the best pizza in State College, and probably the world. You wait on a horrendously long line for your pizza, and it absolutely slaps. You regret nothing the next morning and wake up feeling great.

You have encountered the Willard Preacher

He never fails to share his strong opinions while wearing that red hoodie.

You resent grilled chicken thigh halal


If you live on campus, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

You feel personally victimized when someone calls it "Penn"

"Penn" is the nickname for the University of Pennsylvania. I'm flattered that you think I'm smart enough to get into an Ivy League, but get it straight.

You dream about game day chicken baskets

Is it really game day without a chicken basket?

You've seen the happy-go-lucky man who rides his bike around

I don't know how else to explain this. If you know, you know.

You've taken BiSci3 or Anth140

Booze and Culture

These are probably the most classic gen-eds at Penn State. You're either writing about your feelings in BiSci, or learning about Booze and Culture in Anth140.

You've gotten involved with THON

There are so many ways to get involved with THON. If you go to Penn State, chances are you're #FTK.

You've been to Mount Nittany

The most classic hiking spot.

You've chanted We Are!

I had to end off with this one. Bonus points if you've chanted We Are when you were nowhere near Penn State.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.
