Onward State Gives Thanks
Everyone’s favorite face-stuffing holiday is only a week away, so in grade school-like fashion we at Onward State would like to share our answers to the classic Thanksgiving question: “What are you thankful for?”
Alex Federman: Thanksgiving break, the new Muppets movie, family and friends, pumpkin pie and of course, Onward State.
Ali Fogarty: My UPUA sunglasses.
Chadwick Lynch: Good conversations with people whose time I am worth, the times I can spend alone and enjoy that, night life, the fact that I’m a Penn State student (or a student at all for that matter). Also, I’m thankful I have 8 best friends who grew up with me, lived with me and that I can call them at any hour of the day and start talking where we left off. I owe a lot of my life to my siblings, and I’m really fortunate I have them, if nothing else.
Dan McCool: The people who have somehow lived 20 years with me and not killed me.
Dave Cole: The opportunity for friends and family to take a few days from their busy lives and relax, as a family.
David Morar: My family, good health, my friends, good fortune, mobile internet and transatlantic travel.
Dennis McNamara: My health, Yammer and NFL football.
Devon Edwards: Devon Still.
Doug Dooling: Nutella and Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Drew Balis: THON, friends and family, Wings Over Happy Valley, and Silas Redd.
Eli Glazer: Apple cider.
Ellie Skrzat: Puns.
Evan Kalikow: What Dave Cole said.
Evan Ponter: Lower drug prices.
Jason Poblete: IBM job offer. And also what Tecce said.
John Tecce: Chicken wings.
Kevin Horne: Matt McGloin.
Kristen Piazza: All of the Harry Potter movies on DVD.
Leo Dillinger: Spending some much needed, quality time with my family and friends.
Matthew D’Ippolito: A strong and supportive family (cliche, I know), two communities I can call home (my hometown and State College), and my vinyl collection.
Meghin Moore: My friends and family, Skype and burritos.
Melanie Versaw: My friends and family and having a job when I graduate.
Paige Blawas: Watching countless hours of the Food Network over break.
Ryan Beckler: Bacon, the Joe Paterno statue/library, Dennis McNamara giving me his candle at the vigil, yoga pants, North Face, UGGs, and the honesty of the administration…oh wait.
Sam Cooper: Friends, family, beer and music.
Shawn Christ: Being alive so that I am able to even express thanks. Oh, and not having to draw those hand-turkeys anymore around Thanksgiving. Those were the worst.
Shawn Inglima: My parents being amazing cooks.
From all of us here at Onward State, have a safe and relaxing Thanksgiving break.
