8:00 a.m.

Not to be a winer but I hate having a class as early as 8:00 a.m. Yes, they are great for two reasons. One is because I find parking easy when I have classes that early. The second reason is because if I start at 8:00 a.m. I can get all my classes done early in the morning. Those are the only two reasons that I have early classes because the morning struggle is real.

Getting is a constant battle. I have to set 7 alarms just to make sure i wake up when i am supposed to and even with all that i can’t seem to arise. I used to try to look presentable everyday but know i wake up so exhausted from work and schoolwork that i , sometimes, just throw whatever on and rush out of the house. Plus every single morning when i try to go brush my teeth my brother is in the bathroom so it takes even longer for me to get out of the house. Then when I do get out I can’t have a smooth ride because I catch every single red light possible. Then I get onto campus where parking is the only easy part because I am there so early. Long story short I am just not a morning person.

Coffee and Whatever Else

bitmoji-432322783   For me life isn’t as simple as Ramen Noodle. I don’t have the funds to even support that, and campus food is expensive as well. My vice is coffee. I cannot function without anything else I consume is different depending on the day. Breakfast can vary from nothing to a protein bar/drink, a sandwich, or just a spoonful of peanut butter.

Lunch is a different phenomenon. There are three variables that play into what I have for lunch. Those variables are money, gas, and what is in the fridge. No money means no going out, which is fine with me because I like to save any extra spending money for the weekend. Low gas means spending more money to get gas, and if I am low on money I would like to spend it wisely. So most of the time I am low on both and end up eating at home. When I am home I usefully end up having sandwiches. Sandwiches with peanut butter, cold cuts, and left overs, if I’m lucky.  Dinner is easy because that’s on my parents because I live in a house of seven people so there has to be food for us. If not I can always just head down to my grandmother’s house since she lives just five minutes away.

 

Peanut Butter

093a - Picture Day (301)-2

I am boring! I do not like to pair my peanut butter sandwich with anything. In my opinion it is perfect just the way it is. I absolutely love peanut butter and the protein benefits it comes with. So when I make myself a sandwich I pack in as much as possible on each individual slice of bread. Instead of putting the two pieces of bread together, like a traditional sandwich, I fold each slice od bread to make it its own mini sandwich, taco if you will. There is only one thing that I ever pair my PB sandwich with and that’s with a hot and fresh cup of coffee. Just thinking about it Is making my stomach growl.

Although I love peanut butter it doesn’t always love me back. Depending on the brand, the delicious spread causes me to break out in pimples. This is the reason why I can no longer enjoy Skippy peanut butter. Its high oil content kills my face. I can only trust the shop rite brand to keep my face in tact.

Pompton Parking

As big as this school is there never seems to be enough space for everyone. Most of the times trying to find parking is a project and a half. Lot 4 and 5 are almost always full so your only options are lot 6 which is all the way on the other side of campus, or pay for a reserved spot. Nobody has the time or money for either of those option. Well at least i don’t. So the only real way to avoid this frustration is to sacrifice your sleep, and maybe even your sanity, and get here at 7:30 when the lots are relatively empty.

I have to take 8:oo a.m. classes every single morning just so i can have a place to put my car. Parking affects my schedule too much that i try to have back to back classes so that way i won’t have to leave to then come pack to a parking catastrophe. The worst part is that i am not joking at all. If you don’t get here before 8:oo a.m. you are screwed. Yesterday I was walking to my car at 9:17 a.m. and a woman desperately asked if i was getting out so she can take my parking spot because the entire lot was full.

Crumble

Noting beats a classic. I don’t care how lame, boring, or unoriginal i may sound, but by all the favorite cookie has got to be chocolate chip. It is what i grew up on. I am a big chocolate lover and honestly nothing compares to when you bite down on a warm fresh baked chocolate chip cookie. When you take the first bite it’s so fresh that the chocolate melts and you see it stretch as the cookie breaks apart.

Can I throw down in the kitchen and make a mean cookie? No not really. I have tried and it  didn’t go so well. One time my cousin and I decided to make cookies. We went out bought anything we needed that he didn’t already have at his house. At first things are going smoothly. Until we are told to add brown sugar to the mix. When we take out the brown sugar it is one giant rock. Somehow it all clumped up and hardened and it was unusable. I though it was hilarious. We spent 15 minutes looking for any other brown sugars but no luck. So my cousin, being the genius that he is, besides to put the sugar rock in the blender to try to get it to normal.Needless to say it didn’t work and we almost burned the house down. After a close call his mom tells us there was an extra, brand new, brown sugar right behind where we had set up. After all that the cookies came out… meeh ok but I am going to blame my cousin for that.
