Food for Thought

Embrace your freshman 15

You have made it through three weeks of class. You are back into the swing of things and remembered how to be a good student- do work and down shots, preferably at the same time. Being a good student doesn’t mean going hungry.  Bwog is here for you with this guide to study snacking:

Reading for LitHum/CC: Get yourself a cup of coffee from Joe and box of Stella d’Oro biscotti to dip.  If you’re going to read classical works, you need to do it right.  Plus, that cup of coffee will keep you from falling asleep as Homer recounts his “Catalogue of Ships.” You did read the Iliad, right?

Engineering Problem Set: For this you will need a bag of pretzels.  These should be bite sized, not anything that takes longer to hold than to shove into your chompers—you need your hands to be free.  Crunching these goodies will be cathartic as you struggle to remember what the quantum field theory involved.

Music Hum Response: Nourish yourself in both listening and eating with a pack of Mott’s applesauce and for God’s sake, don’t drown out Verdi with your loud ass slurping.  Add a big glass of Merlot to drown your sorrows once things go south while appearing classy.

Writing An Essay: A bag of Goldfish (This, not this) should sustain you through your writing woes.  Easy enough to toss into your mouth, but also interesting enough to distract you when you need to end up procrastinating—bite off its head, bite off its tail, crunch it. Oops, time for a glass of water! Rinse and repeat. (For your sake, don’t end up doing the Cinnamon Challenge with Goldfish) Teddy Grahams will also work.

CompSci Programming: Bottle of Captain Morgan.  That is how computers work, right?

    @anon I think Homer ‘recounts’ the “Catalogue of Ships”…. so please recant your original statement.

    @This redesign is terrible

  • Dan says:

    @Dan As someone who has studied quantum field theory, the claim that it is at all related to anything on anyone’s “Engineering Problem Set” is insulting. Thank you journalistas for once again assuming that all people who use calculus on a daily basis are the same.
    Also, most scientists and mathematicians love cookies and coffee.

      @But numbers are scary!

      @Alexandra If it makes you feel any better, we assumed that everyone in CC is just “writing an essay.” Also, numbers ARE scary!
