  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

College diet unhealthy

I am a really frugal person.

Any of you graduating seniors not buy groceries for a month, hoping to wait until you move out?

You really discover new ways to prepare the scraps you have into a meal. However, I did just eat a can of tuna for dinner the other night.

When I was nearly done, I remembered I had crackers and mayo that could have transformed into some dip. That’s literally all I have to eat for the rest of the week.

Oh and a slice of cheese, ketchup and mustard.

So I am frugal, and slightly lazy, now that I think about it.

I hope when I get my big boy pay check from my big boy job, I don’t keep up this habit.

The only time I got a real grocery list was the first weekend of junior year when I moved into an apartment.

One of the first things I bought was cookie crisps because I wanted cookies for breakfast.

You see what happens when I give myself free reign? I fricking get cookies for breakfast.

That was such a waste when I could have bought offbrand toaster pastries for so much cheaper.

So I limit myself to $20 everytime I go to the grocery store and eat about two meals a day.

Half the time I am too lazy to make food when I am at class or work so I just wait til I get home around 7 p.m. to eat my first meal of the day.

That’s probably why I weigh 128 pounds, having lost two pounds since entering college freshman year.

I think when I graduate, it’s time for a diet that doesn’t just consist of hot dogs, salami sandwiches and tuna.

Luckily, I’ll live within walking distance of two grocery stores.

I’m about to go ham on that grocery list … and probably order some ham.
