The View From Schreyer House

Dear Diary,

fakegrahamspanierEverything is right with the world. Penn State men’s basketball beat Iowa in a squeaker. The University continues to purchase property, while at the same time letting faculty know not to expect raises. I finished my needlepoint of Old Main in record time. Also, have you seen those commercials for Touch of Grey by Just for Men? I suppose not. You’re a piece of paper. That being said, I find it quite interesting that this product even exists. It is quite a departure from the original Just for Men, which basically said that if you had any grey hair you were instantly that creepy old guy at the bar hitting on chicks. I guess now, because the demographic they’re focused on is getting older, to the point where total youthful hair color seems a little disingenuous, it’s ok to have a little grey. They say that grey connotes experience and hair color connotes youth so their product is a good mix of both.

Hogwash! To me, this reeks of the same reasoning that went into the mullet (Business in the front, party in the back). I take offense to these commercials. I’ve been making grey look good for as long as I remember. Since birth would not be too far off an estimation. It’s just frustrating. Sandra looooves it BTW.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
