dang, i can cosign on alot of those. A few of my ghetto moments were... :arrow: wrappin up pork chops, chicken, and whatever else i could my hands on in the cafe, to take back to my dorm. :arrow: goin to class lookin like a bum anytime before 10 am :arrow: bein too cheap to use my own printer ink. So i would write a paper, email it to myself, then print it out in the ilab...or my roomate's printer when she wasn't in (Shame on u Kenya! *slaps my hand* ). :arrow: keepin braids in longer than i should, just cuz i'm too lazy and too BROKE to do anything else with my hair. :arrow: gettin friends to sneak me out a patty melt when i was too lazy to go to the cafe. :arrow: Being willing to stand in the omelet line for a century cuz Mr. Melvin is the only one that can hook it up :arrow: gettin hype over "soulfood thursday", knowin good and well it's the sorriest excuse of soul food in the world...it's just better than the usual weekly crap. :arrow: Gettin upperclassmen homiez to pay for my stuff with their dining dollars in The Punchout. :arrow: waitin until the wee hours of the morning (3,4,5 am) to take a shower, cuz that's the only time i can take my time in one of the TWO showers that actually worked.

-bringing my own cereal to the cafe. -rocking my freshman class of 2006 bookbag deep into my sophomore year cause I couldnt afford a new one. -bringing home pasteries from my job (starbucks) and selling them to my suitemates. -flirting with the NASTY guy that works in the liquor store in front of Carver (the one with the beer caps in his dread locks) so that me and my girl could get the underage hookup on some drank. Times is hard man.
