If there is one perk about going back to school it might be that I now have a real excuse to call Top Ramen and various Chef Boyardee canned cuisines dinner. Today, in fact, was the first time I've been grocery shopping in over a month and I really did delight in finding some of the crappiest/cheapest stuff that Macey's had to offer. Even shopping at Macey's screams student loan survival.
I guess there's no real reason for me to be living the "college" lifestyle. I own an entire house for heavens sake, but either my pride or my laziness keeps me rocking the air mattress and rubbermaid bins for my clothes even three weeks into this new situation. Don't worry though, I finally bought sheets today. Of course, in keeping with tradition of this lifestyle, they are a size too large and pushing 150 thread count on a good day--but hey, they were on sale!
Basically I probably need to re-prioritize my life so that I'm not curled up on my sagging mattress every night, eating ravioli and combing the web with every intention of purchasing new electronics or a flight to Boston for the weekend. Also, I need to start doing my homework before 10 PM. I'm out.
