My classes don’t start until Tuesday, but I’m working on campus to pay for this little adventure I’ve decided to embark on so I’m here today watching all the freshmen move in. They look like wee little babies.
I bought my books, which was pretty painless. Universities are now giving students the option to rent books, making them significantly cheaper. It’s still a crap deal for the students in the long run because the school will continue to rent the books year after year for more than they’re worth. But whatever. It’s cheaper than buying it and probably better than trying to sell it back for dirt, as is always the case.
I packed my lunch like a responsible money-saving graduate student and enjoyed it outside free from fluorescent lights, a welcome escape even if only for a few minutes. I packed carrots, celery, greens, Stew’s hummus, 1/2 a peach (the other half was in my breakfast), some kind of fruit I don’t know the name of (not a plum), trail mix and chocolate.
Adora chocolates were given away at HLS and they are awesommme. I’m not big on supplements, but the deal with these is that they taste good as chocolate alone. And since one piece has half my recommended calcium intake, I have to limit myself to just two or risk kidney stones or whatever other havoc excessive calcium wreaks on the human body.
Mystery Snack Reveal
Did you make a guess for my mystery snack?
Several of you were on to me. It’s a dried banana from Earth Fare. I don’t really even like bananas, which is odd considering I love banana soft serve and these dried things. But some people like ketchup but hate tomatoes. Tomato… tomahto.
