College Life

Thursday, August 25, 2011

College is already starting to affect me in ways that I dislike, primarily my eating habits. I find myself without time to prepare meals for the current or following day, and my wallet is empty until my next paycheck which is in the hands of the USPS....somewhere. Today, for example, I had a cup of yogurt and a plum for breakfast. Lunch was a hurriedly eaten granola bar before work. Dinner was a $0.49 loaf of Jimmy John's day old bread (which, if you have never had, is AMAZING) picked up on the way to a play practice. When I got home around 9:45pm, I had salad with grilled chicken on it. That is what I ate today. Not very balanced...or healthy in some places, but...yeah. That's what college is messing with.

Another area that college has screwed with is in the area of friends. My best friend (and no, I'm not too old to still have a best friend) is going to college up near Chicago, which is a distance from me. Another friend is going to college just on the other side of the Wisconsin border...which also sucks. It's hard for me to make new friends, but even then, between work and school, I have little time to do anything with anyone. For me, hanging out with friends is how I recharge. I can have a completely draining day, but if I hang out with a friend at the end, I'm good. I'll have to figure something out, I guess. Oh, well.

    Is there not a microwave on campus that you can heat a lunch up? I'm sorry, but as a Chemistry major and Math minor at the school that I go to, I find it hard to believe you are having that much trouble finding time. Try following my program for a week, and you'll see about having time, okay? I'm not trying to berate you, but I am going to say that you can make time. If you don't have time, make it. It's all about finding a system that works for you.
