Let us Eat our Hearts Out

Just knowing about the upcoming grand opening of the University Center’s new fast food restaurant, Jack in the Box, makes me hungrier and hungrier every day.
During my first year at Irvine, I have never failed to notice the great importance of off-campus dining options, specifically any foods which are deep-fried and cheesy and preferably priced in any way that resemble a dollar-menu.
With the recent swipe-and-ride advantage of Orange County public buses that comes with student ID cards comes also the urge for students to eat as far away from the campus’ dining halls as possible.
I am not complaining about the food, as I cannot recall ever turning down any of its heavy entrees, exotic center stage meals or fancy desserts.
I am expressing that there is always a meal supplement somewhere else.
Paranoid freshmen always stop to inspect their reflections as they walk past office windows, although completely oblivious to the people on the other side who are laughing at their efforts to disguise their unflattering waist-lines.
Even though such a discovery can lead to some more serious conditions, sometimes including severe depression and eating disorders, I believe that unhealthy food and its consequences are among life’s most important experiences.
There is no greater feeling than the satisfaction of a perfect meal
