The thing about being a broke college student is figuring out how to be a broke college student. So today, roughly two weeks into the semester, I noticed that my in-room food supply was looking pretty destitute. Now, unlike just about everyone else on campus, I actually enjoy the food here. Sure it gets monotonous but at least you're guaranteed to find something you like. However, I eat constantly. Thank God for a metabolism like none-other or I'd be one of those people you see on Oprah who is bed-ridden with obesity. Needless to say, anytime I'm in this tiny room doing any tacit activity, like sitting here listening to 90's pop, my supply gets hit, hard. Today though, due to pourring rain, there was no tennis pactice, and so I had a lovely afternoon off. So I took the proactive approach and walked down to CVS. Once inside, I procceeded to buy five packages of Ramen noodles, a box of oatmeal cookies, a bottle of cranberry juice, and the all-important 8-pack of Reeses PB cups for four dollars and ninety cents. I was impressed, but I have to tell you, I probably wouldn't turn down an invitation to The Cheesecake Factory right now either. Theoretically, money should be saved in case you need to buy milk and orange juice for your mini-fridge later in the semester. In actuality though, it's saved for Thursday nights, when you go downtown, and if the drink-buying pool of already drunk people is lacking, you can buy your own. Irony is everywhere, whether you're looking for it or not. Just put it on the tab...
