Let’s talk about food. A lot of you are probably thinking about eating healthier, getting ready for swimsuits and shorts, hopping back on the wagon the holidays and semester knocked over. . . .
Well, worry no more. This is your free pass to eat badly and not care until the semester is over. And here are the top 10 reasons for your free pass:
10. OMG, what will I do this summer? . . .
Whether you’re graduating, taking classes or just taking a break, summer plans can be hard. We think you should forget about the summer and enjoy some ice cream.
9. So many events, so little time . . .
Have you ever noticed that everything happens at the same time? You have your end-of-year party at the same time your final paper is due, or you have an awards banquet at the same time the carnival is going on. Eat some fries and the craziness will burn the calories for you.
8. In this presentation . . .
Not only do you have to learn, memorize and write about this subject — we’d also like you to give a 30-minute presentation on what you’ve done with it. Bring some Goldfish and Cheez-Its to bribe the students to listen, and you’ll be golden.
7. They like me, they like me not . . .
Worried that professor you disagree with is going to take your differing opinion into consideration? Grit your teeth and eat your opinions in the form of red velvet cupcakes.
6. The Tale of 101 Papers . . .
If you don’t have a final test, you probably have a final paper. Or, if you’re lucky, final papers. The best solution is a cheesy bean burrito.
5. Wait, that was due TODAY? . . .
The end of the semester seems to compress into this strange space-time vortex where everything is due at once, and that due date that was a week away is now tomorrow. Gooey fudge brownies are an excellent remedy to help counteract this phenomenon.
4. BYOB . . .
You’ll be doing a lot of waiting if you have to go to the testing center, so bring your own book. A pre-test snack of sour cream and cheddar chips is also a good idea.
3. Week of the living dead . . .
This is the week before the end, and everyone seems like they’ve given up on life for the moment. Really, just eat more chocolate, and the week will fly by.
2. Just one more to go . . .
Remember the waiting? Well, you probably have to do it more than once. After that last one, though, enjoy some carb-friendly Italian food.
1. Have cash, must spend . . .
All right, so this one doesn’t apply to everyone, but it’s still a really good reason. All those Dining Dollars you bought at the beginning of the semester? They will go bye-bye if you don’t spend them by the end of the semester. Hit the Quick Zone and clear out the candy rack for your end-of-year celebration.
