Finals Fashion

So, I've said before that your daily outfit should be based on your daily mood. So what do you do during finals week when all that's (hopefully) on your mind is crunching numbers for your accounting exam, or the conjugation for every single freakin tense, plus vocab for random words and how to compose your own sentence for each of the tenses for your spanish 3 exam. (Deep Breath). Sorry, Spanish is stressin me out, man. Where was I? Oh, what to wear, got it. Here's what you do. Wake up, go to your closet and.....DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT. If you're thinking about what your wearing this week then your priorities are not by any means in order. If you're really that nervous about fitting in here's a sure fire way to. Wear Penn State sweats and/ or hoodies. Grow out that finals beard even if you haven't been studying and you've been showering every day, it'll give you that, "OMG I've been studying so hard I haven't been able to worry about anything else," look. Keep the beard until you go home so even if you fail every final, your parents will see some evidence that you worked hard. Wear those sweats every day, they will get comfier each day. Each second you waste putting product in your hair is another theorem you pass up on studying for your econ class. And most of all stay off of Facebook, ESPN, Perez, and all those other tabs in your bookmarks that you only click on when you're procrastinating. Now that I've been writing for a few minutes it hit me, I have a final in 4 hours so I should probably stop bloggin'. Gotta go, meeting Mike at Dunkin' Donuts to do some studyin', I'll be the one in the Penn State sweats with the finals beard.

Good Luck this week everyone

Peace and Love,

Everyone take a minute to read Paul Krugman's take on what needs to happen to fix this mess we're in. It is a very broad base article that summarizes what has happened. We've been in a mess like this before with the savings and loan crisis and the taxpayers bailed everyone out. Again, a level of deregulation has lead us down the same path and again our money has bailed them out. When will we learn? When will they clear away all the B.S. in front of their eyes and take a look at what's really going on so maybe, just maybe some necessary changes in the greatest country in the world will take place.
