hot dogs and mac and cheese

some tips from your local depressed college student
  • cheap paper towels + hydrogen peroxide = acne treatment (just be careful not to bleach your eyebrows unless you’re into that idk)
  • use the acne face soap on your chest, upper back, and shoulders instead, since it doesn’t do shit for your face (or at least not mine)
  • no one is stopping you from bushing your teeth in the shower except yourself (just eliminating that extra step of going to the sink makes it so much easier for me)
  • did you know you’re actually supposed to put on stick deodorant at night??? It has time to absorb while u sleep or stare at the ceiling in dispair whichever works best for u
  • carrots and/or apples dipped in peanut butter = dinner (or just plain peanut butter but it helps to get a lil something extra if you can manage it)
  • if you give yourself an allowance of skip days (i’m talking like 3 or 4 max) then it can be easier to go to class if you remind yourself “i only have 2 skip days left, I’m gonna save them until I REALLY need them” (think of skip days like non-essential items in a video game - you could use them now, but what if you really need them during the final boss battle later on??)
  • the velveeta microwave dinners aren’t great but they’re cheap and better than some other options out there. the mac n cheese w/ meat ones can smell a bit like dog food but they still taste pretty good
  • if you like peppermint hot chocolate - save the after dinner mints you get at places like Chik Fil A and italian restaurants and such and then drop a couple in your mug before you put it in the microwave. boom. 
  • if you’ve got a sore throat, just take a spoonful of honey (or squirt it directly from the bottle to your mouth if you’re a heathen like me) and go find a hot drink
  • for essays - highlight/number/circle/whatever you want to do to make ‘em stand out the quotes you want to use in your paper, then go take a shower or get something to eat or just watch like a 15-20 minute video on YouTube and then come back to your paper, pop those fuckin’ quotes in the right order, and write in the smart bullshit around them
  • okay actually the one thing that I will spend a little extra money on is cough drops bc i get a sore throat all the damn time and the only kind i will buy anymore is Halls Breezers they taste like candy instead of koala shit my personal favorite is cool berry but the orange creme ones are good too honestly these cough drops have saved my life at least six times now
  • coffee is gr9 but don’t forget to have some water every day too dehydration is NOT FUN (speaking from very painful personal experience)

college!au, angst with a happy ending

Avoiding Cas is surprisingly easy.

All Dean has to do is block him on all social media sites, park his car down the street at a friend’s house so Cas never knows when he’s home, rely more on public transportation to get to campus, and finally just never leave his apartment except for class.

Easy peasy.

That is, until Dean needs to go to the grocery store. He’s been living off Ramen noodles and mac and cheese for weeks now, too afraid to stop anywhere near campus in case Cas is nearby. 

But now he’s officially all out of beer and Captain Morgan and he figures he could probably use some non-microwaveable groceries while he’s out. 

He goes to the little market about four blocks away. He hits up the essentials first: booze, some hamburger, hot dogs, bread, eggs. He considers produce but immediately shakes that thought loose and decides that he’s entitled to some ice cream instead.

“Dean?”

Dean freezes,  carton half way to his basket. It takes everything in him to turn around and the moment he connects with blue eyes he really wishes he hadn’t.

Cas looks sick staring back at him, eyes glasses over with a sort of disbelief, like he thinks he’s seeing a ghost. 

He says Dean’s name again but Dean doesn’t respond. They’re both tense, like they’re about to draw on each other in an old western movie instead of standing in a damn milk aisle. 

As awkward as the moment it, Dean almost wishes they could stay like this. Because it’s good to see Cas, the flesh and blood Cas. He’s missed him like you miss air when you’re holding your breath. But he also knows that if Cas talks, if he tries to come at him, Dean will run. He can feel his knees bracing for a take-off and he’s not ready to look away.

But Cas does it. He takes a step forward and Dean immediately takes one back. Cas’s eyes travel down to Dean’s feet and he looks hurt.

“Dean, please, let me-” He takes two quick steps and Dean is speeding past the checkout lines, dropping the basket somewhere alone the way.

He doesn’t breathe again until he’s back in his apartment. He falls on the couch and draws he knees up, settling his head between his legs as he sucks in breaths and lets his head clear.

He’s so fucked. So impossibly fucked.

eastofthemoon  asked:

Shiro thought, I know you headcanon that Shiro likes more instant food like instant ramen, kraft dinner, etc Do you think Shiro would like mug cakes? They're easy to make (I love them), but I can see Hunk not being a fan of them because they have the microwave taste.

(Point of order: Kraft Mac and Cheese.  Though I admit Shiro would really love adding ketchup and hot dogs to it)

I think so, but I think Shiro also 90 percent of the time looks at the finished version and goes ‘oh, man, under cooked’ and puts it in until it’s a dry, flaky mess.  Hunk doesn’t necessarily miiind mug cakes, though he prefers the real version and thinks most the recipes for it are shit.  But the fact that Shiro will sit there and calmly eat what’s basically flour sand is slowly killing him.

(”Do you hate me?” Hunk finally bursts out one day, scrubbing over his face.

Shiro looks up from his mug, eyes wide.  He looks down at it, just a flicker, then tilts it toward Hunk.  “No.  Did you want some?” He asks carefully, like he’s not sure that’s the solution to this issue.

Because it’s not.  Hunk looks at the mug like it’s a bomb that’s about to go off.  “If you wanted cake, you could have asked for my help.”

Shiro frowns.  “I wouldn’t ask you to do that just for this.  And besides, it was just a craving, we don’t need to make a whole cake.”  He goes back to eating, and Hunk watches in horror as he happily swallows each dry, crumbling bite.)

SiH characters and unholy stuff I've seen people do to their food
  • Ritsu: Pineapple in pizza
  • Takano: Ketchup in pasta (like spaghetti or mac and cheese)
  • Kisa: Doesn't eat the pizza crust (the only understandable one)
  • Yukina: Peanut butter and celery (this is shocking common wtf is wrong with you people)
  • Chiaki: Cereal in hot dog
  • Hatori: Eats mayonnaise by its self
  • Mino: Ice in cereal (he likes eating shit as cold as his heart in the mornings)
Creepypasta #1032: Jenny Martin

Length: Long

When I was younger, about eight, I think, Jenny Martin from down the road would come babysit me. 

For the most part, Jenny was a really great babysitter. It was during the summer, when my parents had to work, so she and I would spend the whole day together. From memory, she was really tall, but that could be because everyone is tall when you’re eight. She had brown hair, brown eyes and freckles. I think she was fifteen or sixteen. Jenny always loved doing the things I loved doing. She would play Barbies with me, and finger paint and give me a cookie at lunch. Sometimes we’d walk to the park and have a picnic lunch. She was really great.

I think my parents would come home at 4:30, because she always left, just before dinner. And my mom and dad would ask how my day was, and I would hop around and tell them all the fun I’ve had. Those summer days were great. But then, school started. My parents wanted the occasional date night, sometimes worked longer hours, etc. So Jenny would come over after school, and stay really late.

The first few nights were fine. We had things like chicken nuggets or Mac ’n’ Cheese, or hot dogs for dinner. One night, that I remember really clearly though, we had chicken breast. My mom had left a recipe and all the spices on the counter, but I remember Jenny didn’t touch a single one. And when dinner was served, sitting beside some raw veggies, was an equally raw piece of chicken. I remember being really confused and pointed out to Jenny that I didn’t think it was cooked right. And she said,

“Raw is a delicacy. Eat up.” I didn’t know what delicacy meant, but it sounded fancy, and I trusted her, so I ate the meat. Jenny did too; she tore into it like it a starving dog, and blood dripped off her fingers, and fat smeared her mouth. She licked her lips and sucked her fingers before cleaning up.

Since I was eight years old, I naturally had a bedtime, which my mom tells me was 7:30. So at 7:25, Jenny would help me brush my teeth and get into my PJs and read me a bedtime story, before tucking me in.

I always fell asleep rather quickly; I think most little kids do. And since I didn’t have a clock in my room, I have no idea how long it was before I woke up to strange sounds coming from the downstairs. If I had been any older I would have investigated. But my eight-year-old self would hunker under the blankets and squeeze her eyes shut, trying desperately to ignore the faint gurgling and scratching coming from the living room.

The next morning, I’d tell my parents there were funny sounds from downstairs and they told me Jenny heard them too. Apparently, the water heater needed a new pipe or something. I don’t remember exactly the story Jenny told them, but I bought it.

I’m pretty sure I was an accident. Now that I’m older, I’ve heard stories of how neither of my parents wanted kids, and a drunk Uncle Finn told me that I was conceived in the bushes of a Van Halen concert. My parents were pretty good parents - are pretty good parents, but even as a kid, I could tell they didn’t like having me tag along. So the nights with Jenny slowly became more frequent as they trusted her more and more.

About a month after the water heater story, I decided to see if it really was the water heater. Like usual, I brushed my teeth, changed, read a story and went to bed. And like usual, I woke up who-knows-how-much later to weird noises. I grabbed the flashlight I had previously stashed under my pillow (I would need it for the basement) and slowly crept from my bed. I creaked open my bedroom door, and made my way towards the sounds. I remember being confused, because the gurgling seemed to be coming from the living room – where Jenny was, and not the basement which was in a different direction. I reasoned the sounds must be coming from a vent or something.

I turned off the flashlight because I didn’t want Jenny to catch me snooping around, and besides, the TV light was plenty to see by. The noises were really loud in the living room. I slowly peeked my head around the corner of the door way. Jenny sat on the couch, with her knees pulled up to her chest, her arms wrapped around her knees and her hair falling over her downward-tilted face. She wasn’t even facing the TV. She was facing me.

No ketchup or mustard but I did have salsa, guac’ and a box of daiya mac n cheese so used the sauce from that as a nacho sauce. Behold the abomination that is my lunch…I shouldn’t be left without adult supervision 😬😅

Hamilton Character’s Guilty Pleasure Foods

Hamilton:  Coffee, or anything coffee flavored.  He enjoys it for the fact that it keeps him up for days while he applies himself to work, but he also takes pride in trying almost every coffee creamer there is.  His personal favorites are Vanilla Caramel and Hazelnut.

Burr:  White rice.  People often joke about how it’s as bland as he is, but he’ll often eat on it’s own with a little bit of butter and salt, or as a side with steak.  That, and dark chocolate.  Not together, of course, but he’ll often sneak a few pieces during his studies/work when no one is looking.

Eliza:  Cookies, any type will do, but chocolate chip are her favorites.  As much as she loves eating them, she loves making them even more.  The kids love them, and it’s one of the things she can get Alexander to eat without a struggle.  She’ll often bake too many and have Alexander hand them out at work.  (He’ll say he gave them to everyone, but doesn’t give any to Jefferson or Madison.)

Angelica:  Cherries covered in dark chocolate.  They’re expensive, but if she’s in the mood, she’ll buy a dozen boxes.  She often eats them while watching trash TV, and before she knows it, will be through an entire box.

Lafayette:  Strawberry crepes.  Again, expensive to find well made, but he makes them himself if he’s in America since he doesn’t trust them to do it for him.  They’re a little fattening, but he can two or three at once, so he tries to keep his sweet tooth in check.

Thomas Jefferson:  Easy mac with ketchup.  He hates having to make easy mac since he thinks it’s disrespectful to the dish, but if he doesn’t want to go through the effort of making his famous macaroni and cheese, and he’s home alone, he’ll pull out a box of Kraft and drizzle it with ketchup.

George Washington:  Anything you can find at a cookout.  He throws them for any holiday he can, grilling up burgers and hot dogs.  His wife makes potato salad and they buy chips and dip for everyone.  He invites everyone to the cookouts, and more often than not it usually ends with him breaking up a fight between Jefferson and Hamilton.  

King George the Third: Nothing. He’s king, he can eat anything he wants. However, he’ll never admit to liking anything American. He hates himself for it, but he’s a sucker for hamburgers and American bacon. He’ll often binge on two of three baconators if the craving hits him hard enough.

Laurens: A peanut butter and jelly sandwich with cheetos inside paired with a tooth rottingly sweet soda, usually something cotton candy or blue raspberry flavored. ONLY GRAPE JELLY THOUGH, FUCK STRAWBERRY.

Philip:  Anything his mom cooks.  He loves her cooking just as much as he loves her, and often times will get irritated if he finds out she’s not cooking, and they’re ordering out.  He also steals his dad’s food when he’s too busy working to be bothered with eating, and during Thanksgiving he always eats the most.

Eacker: Fudge, specifically a swirl of peanut butter and dark chocolate. He likes the bitter taste dark chocolate provides, and that mixed with the savory taste of the peanut butter makes him very happy.

Peggy:  Bananas.  She adores the yellow fruit, and anything that is made with it.  Banana bread, banana smoothies, banana yogurt, any of it is fair game in her book.  The sweetness of a banana without the messy juice that comes from other fruits is also a plus.

Maria: Chocolate covered strawberries/oranges.  It’s a sexual food, but she doesn’t mind.  She likes it, and won’t let anyone tell her it’s weird that she dips her fruit in chocolate.  While any chocolate will do, she prefers white chocolate.  She most often eats it with strawberries, but when she dives into chocolate covered oranges, she always forgets why she stopped because the tangy taste mixes so well with the chocolate.

Hercules: Steak.  If he ever comes across an extra bit of money, you can be sure it will be spent going to a steak house and eating them out of business.

Madison: He’ll deny it until the day he dies, but he prefers chocolate ice cream over vanilla. He pretends his favorite is vanilla since Jefferson makes it for him, but if he can get his hands on chocolate ice cream, it’s game over.

Seabury: Girl Scout cookies.  He takes great joy in the things in life that aren’t a constant, so when the Girl Scouts start selling cookies again, he buys a few boxes of every type and eats a few cookies with every meal.  He also likes the fact that the money is going to help an organization that helps brings girls together and offers them a sense of belonging.

Lee: Vodka infused gummy bears.  If it were up to him, he’d be drinking every minute of every day, but unfortunately he has shit to do, which means a baggy full of gummy bears helps to get him through the day.

Warning: Sexual content.

They had taken to feeding her.

Every morning, without fail, she was greeted to a sumptuous 3-course breakfast by one of her boys. Henry tended to favour waffles, (his favorite) sausage, and hashbrowns. Killian seemed to prefer fruit, an omelet, and toast. (Really, she had to ask who taught him to make Eggs Benedict one day.) Additionally, there was a several-step lunch wrapped up and ready-to-go for her work at the Sheriff’s Station. (There was often a note stuck in the brown paper bag. Henry’s made her tear up and Killian’s often made her blush and hastily hide the message from the inquiring eyes of her father.)

List of absurdly cheap foods
  • Ramen (of course). The bigger bulk you buy the more ridiculous it gets–the 32-pack is around $7 at Sam’s.
  • Offbrand yogurt cups at Publix are 50 cents a cup. They sometimes go on sale for 40 cents. Great source of not-having-scurvy.
  • There’s a 50 pound bag of rice at Sam’s for $15. That’s utterly bananas. Get you some rice (cheap sauces include sriracha, soy sauce, lemon juice, Creole seasoning; you can also crack an egg in it while it’s boiling and/or just throw in some cheese).
  • Publix brand mac and cheese comes in packs of 6 for $4. The recipe calls for ¼ cup of butter, but you only need one teaspoon at most. If it isn’t flavorful enough, use a little Creole seasoning (also really cheap).
  • Hot dogs. Pretty much anywhere hot dogs are really cheap.
  • Pancake mix. You can get a big bag of it pretty much anywhere for very little money. All you need is water, and if you can’t eat them dry then use peanut butter (there’s a 6lb thing of Peter Pan at Sam’s for I think $4?)
  • 2-liters of Publix brand soda are 99 cents, and they’re sometimes BOGO. That’s insane.
  • Totino’s pizzas and Knorr’s pasta/rice packets are often $1 per at Publix.
  • If you need more protein (I know I do sometimes), cheap meats that I like include meatballs and imitation crabmeat.
  • Really just go to Publix and do a quick sweep of the store. There’s gonna be at least one thing that’s absurdly cheap and/or on sale.

Signal boost and add your own. I wish that I had known all this when I first moved out.
