Wrote September 10, 2009: I’m sitting here tonight trying to convince myself I like suppers solely comprised of brown minute rice, soy sauce, and a plumb I stole from my house, after a day of sitting through classes listening to syllabi after syllabi and running into old friends, ex-boyfriends, people who’s names I should—but don’t—remember, and coming home to an apartment of mostly strangers, I am wondering why I do this thing called college.
Wrote Today: Yesterday I realized it’s for reasons like this:
Happy National Chocolate Milkshake Day (Saturday)! As celebrated by me and my roommates Angie and Jocelyn.
Yesterday was one of those days when a chocolate milkshake said more than a chocolate milkshake. It said, “I’m free. I have little responsibility. I have fun friends and roommates. I am independent. I’m at a great time in my life.”
Chocolate milkshakes are the reason I do this thing called college.
