It’s winter in Schenectady. The air is dry, the wind is harsh, the temperature is plummeting, and you’re faced with perhaps one of the greatest dilemmas a modern college student walking across a northeastern campus this time of year can be put up against: you need to send a text. Now for you BlackBerry or old-school flip-phone users, this is no big deal, but for touch phone users it’s a near tragedy; should you remove your snuggly gloves and risk frost-bitten fingers to send that life-or-death message letting your friends know that you’re almost at Reamer? Well, with these magical gloves it’s no longer an issue! My friend found them at Walmart, and at at reasonable $3, you don’t even have to think twice about making the purchase! Touch phones respond to the special coated tips on the thumb, fore, and middle fingers just like they would to bare hands, and the gloves come in a plethora of designs and colors so you don’t have to risk the ultimate fashion faux-pas of having the exact same ones as someone else on campus. Believe me, your fingers will thank you.
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
