The signs as things as first semester in college
  • Aries: The first week that is dedicated into luring into their traps dubbed 'clubs' and 'organizations' and them talking you into going to one of those cult like events for sororities and fraternities; you can't escape, they will find you
  • Taurus: The urge to back hand annoying upper class men who are offending your eardrums without even being in their stupid conversation about how dog boobs are weird
  • Gemini: "I WOULD LIKE TO BE FRIENDS WITH YOU, WHAT IS YOUR MAJOR" starter pack. Does not include tears or awkward conversation skills.
  • Cancer: Must. Find. The. People. Who. Give. Out. Free. Food. And. Money. Or. Maybe. Get. A. Rich. Upper. Classmen. To. Be. My. Sugar. Daddy/Mama.
  • Leo: The fuck do you guys mean you invested all this money into a theater and don't have a theater department? ! Well, student body government here I come.
  • Virgo: Drugs. Frat parties and so much drinking. Then freaking out finals week when the temperature drops and freezes your nipples back into studying
  • Libra: Shaving your armpits and legs more often then you open your $130+ psychology books
  • Scorpio: With black painted nails and freshly inked tattoos, all they are trying tell me is that- YOU TO USE TUMBLR, FOLLOW ME. NOW.
  • Sagittarius: That one hot professor who stares at you and you stare back, hoping to start something new- turns out you have dried drool in both corners of your mouth and those crust boogers in your eyes and they feel bad for you. Or think you were out partying instead of writing that 4-page-double-spaced essay over the history of the fucking United States of America
  • Capricorn: The pathetic excuse they call food in the dining hall that you can't even take food from. But everyone steals the fruit and sneaks out cookies to save money. Don't drink the milk unless you want an upset stomach that lasts a week
  • Aquarius: That one person you have sexual tension with but your not sure whether or not to engage with your first fwb in college or not. Also, this same person spilled ramen on their lap and was forced to go to the ER
  • Pisces: Resisting the urge to call your parents and telling them you have become a stripper and have a roommate who every time they open their bedroom door- their room smells like week old hot pockets and $1 air freshener

Eating healthy at college,

Honestly, what a struggle. There is a constant abundance of junk food always floating around while away at college. Chips, pasta, pizza, fries, you name it and they have it. That isn’t completely the case with healthy choices though.

Granted, there being food I can eat anywhere is tough. I’m a gluten free pre-diabetic vegetarian. I know, what a mouthful. But to sum up my life, I cannot have sugary foods due to being a pre-diabetic and not wanting to have to poke myself daily. I cannot eat gluten due to severe IBS. AKA, it just messes my belly up too much to merit eating it. And I do not choose to eat animals. 

At college, I am practically forced to eat the same few foods day in and day out. For breakfast, my option are low-fat yogurt with almond slivers, Rice Chex with Splenda and cinnamon, or toast with peanut butter on it. I’m sure you’re sitting there wondering, but what about fresh fruit? Well, at my school fresh fruit either means moldy strawberries or fruit freshly out of a can of syrup. Yummy. 

For lunch and dinner I kind of stick to the same foods. I have a decent salad bar that offers Beyond Meat Chicken which is a fabulous gluten free vegetarian “tofu”. I highly recommend! So I’ll usually either have that by itself or in a salad. Sometimes they have avocado and I’ll have that with salt and pepper on it. Rarely, they will have a soup that is both vegetarian and gluten free. A lot of the time I’ll have to buy boxes of soup and other microwavable meals and have those throughout the week to give me some kind of variety in my diet. 

For me, eating healthy in itself is a struggle and a half. My college absolutely does not do a good job of providing healthy options for those who have dietary restrictions.

im trying to come up with a sustainable diet for the semester

At $68,000 per year, George Washington University in Washington, D.C., is one of the most expensive schools in the country, and yet some students — most of whom receive financial aid — still don’t have enough to eat every week.

So the school opened a food pantry for students, joining over 300 other schools across the nation that have done the same.

The school’s food pantry is unmarked. Students fill out forms that list their email addresses and student ID numbers, but they do not have to give their names or discuss their finances.

“One of the things that we learned from talking to all the other universities that we spoke to this summer was one of the concerns for students is anonymity around this and being able to feel like they can use us without having any judgment,” Miller says.

He describes one student who walked in terrified of not knowing what the pantry would be like and was overjoyed and brought to tears when she saw it was like a grocery store.
