For a first time dormer, I absolutely had no idea how I'd eat breakfast and dinner. I have lunch in school, so there's no problem with that. I stocked my side of the kitchen shelves with a small variety of cereals. I usually buy three different kinds of cereals so I don't get sick of one easily.
I decided to try to live a little healthier by buying a bunch of fruits as a substitute for chips, for when I get hungry while I study. But being a naughty little child that I am, I still buy a couple of bags of chips and later on endure the sermon my mom has to offer telling me how bad chips are for me.
There would always be a couple of ramen noodles and other kinds of cup noodles on the kitchen shelf. Other than the effortless means of preparation, at least I have a warm bowl of soup as my companion during the cold, lonely nights I have to stay up and read for my Literature class.
To save money and have a little taste from home, my aunt prepares Tupperwares of food prepared at home so I can just microwave it at the dorm. Never will I say no to home cooked meals.
Feeding yourself when you're living in a dorm may seem like a challenge at first, but it is not entirely impossible. You also don't have to sacrifice health for convenience. There will always be a way, it's just a matter of finding it.
