It has been a year to remember for Penn State football and one that has kept us all on the edge of our seats, cheering with every ounce of our beings. We've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly and through it all, we were proud to be Nittany Lions. While we won't put away our jerseys and shakers for good until January, the days of home games and chicken baskets have come to an end. Let's recap on this whirlwind of a season!

September 3rd vs Kent State

Summer seems to drag on and on after we've bought our students tickets so by the time game day rolled around, we were more than ready! And what better way to kick off the season than with a win?

September 10th at Pitt

After a rousing #PittHateWeek I think we all felt a little awkward after that loss.

September 24th at Michigan

With a win at home the week before we were back to our happy old selves... And then... yeah, I didn't enjoy watching this game.

October 1st, 8th vs Minnesota, Maryland

everybody hands go up

October 15th: Bye Week

October 22nd vs Ohio State

THIS. NO WORDS.

October 29th- November 12th

#PurdueBeat #IowaBeat #IndianaBeat

November 19th at Rutgers

Lol Rutgers

November 26th vs Michigan State

Despite the fact that we had to briefly cheer for Ohio State, this day was just one win after another for Penn Staters. B1G East Champions baby!

Weekend of December 3rd: En Route

Nothing beats hitting the road/ skies with thousands of other Penn State fans.

December 3rd vs Wisconsin (First Half)

We'll be okay. We'll pull through. We're a second half team. It'll all be okay. Aaaah.

December 3rd vs isconsin (Second Half)

Why yes, I did purposely not include the W in Wisconsin cause WEEEE ARE THE CHAMPIONS.

December 4th: Announcement of the Bowl Championship Series

While many believe we clearly deserve to be in the playoffs and are more than outraged...

Others are excited to be headed to Pasadena for only the fourth time in program history and are ready to take on the Rose Bowl.


All in all it has been a heart-pounding season of excitement and pride as we truly enter a new era of Penn State football. Let's give USC all we've got in January!

P.S. If we could just skip February- August and go right to next season, well that would be just fantastic.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
