JUST ANOTHER MANLY MONDAY: THE READING MAN

it's not that a man reading a kindle or an ipad isn't sexy, but when given the choice between a man reading an actual paper-bound book or a man scrolling with his finger on a touch screen, we'd pick the first guy every time. of course some of this depends on what the dear fellow is reading-- for instance, you see a man on the bus thoroughly engrossed in his book and "oh!" you think, "here is a rarity across the aisle from me on the city bus." indeed, he is a rarity. we don't see very many men reading these days which is a shame. "i wonder what he's reading," you slouch lower in your seat to get a glimpse of the title. damnit. it's the 2010 jodi picoult novel. the world has not smiled at you after all. 

in this case, we'd prefer the man reading cry, the beloved country on his kindle.

tolle lege, kind reader. 








this out-of-print sweatshirt is the perfect christmas gift for that dorky guy in your life. and by dorky of course we mean brave, kind, funny and interesting. or perhaps the aesthetically pleasing book-about-books for his coffee table?





guys take note and girls take heart-- the reading man exists and he is as manly as they come.

BLUNT FORCE DRAMA: GOOD LUCK

it's exam time-- if you're not stressed, at least act like you are.


keep these things in mind as you study:

-ask yourself, "will this matter 10 years from now?" YES. the answer is yes. whether you care to admit it or not, your GPA is directly correlated to how many times you can remodel your kitchen. so you have a cumulative 2.23? looks like granite countertops are just a pipe-dream, buddy. 

-the best way to knock out a few solid hours in the library. on repeat. all night long.

-if your school offers an exam prize pack, sign yourself up. if they draw your name, you get two free scantrons AND a diet pepsi. 

-study break idea: go through all your pictures on facebook. again. 

-study-break idea #2: library bingo.
              -guys in white hats/visors
              -ugg boots
              -that person who takes the elevator up ONE floor
              -"hey, will you watch my stuff?"
              -a laptop with more than five stickers on it
              -subway/jimmy johns
              -leggings as pants
              -girls watching the hunger games trailer

-but really, take the stairs.

good luck with finals if you have them and if you don't, good luck with all that free time!
