I had a meeting on the University of Central Florida (UCF) campus this morningâ€¦ UCF is SO BIG! I totally got lost trying to find the right building.
I went to the University of Pittsburgh from 2002 â€“ 2006. PITT is a medium-sized school, but the campus is open and integrated in the city. A closed campus like UCF seems so weird to me.
Before my meeting, I had an Oh She Glows bar:
If youâ€™re a UCF student, please come to the Operation Beautiful event on February 24 at 7 PM! There will be free shirts, free food, lots of fun prizes, and (hopefully) awesome discussions about Operation Beautiful and body image!
I think itâ€™s pretty cool that UCF is publicizing the event via Operation Beautiful-style notes.
Megan said she walked into the Engineering bathroom and saw a slew of them!
After my meeting, I decided to do something very college-ish and eat lunch out. :) There are soooo many restaurants around the UCF campus, but I had my eyes peeled for one special place:
The Pita Pit! Iâ€™ve seen it on Jennaâ€™s blog so much, but Iâ€™ve never eaten there myself.
I had the hummus and grilled onion, green pepper, and mushroom pita. Also on my pita was Greek dressing and sprouts.
Were You (or Are You) a Healthy College Student?
I was the MOST UNHEALTHY person in college. I havenâ€™t exactly made it a secret on the blog that I was a pretty big party animal who drank way too much alcohol for 4 long, long years. I had a really good time though! Oh, and I wasnâ€™t a total bum â€“ I graduated with two degrees and with honors. Party hard, work hard was my motto. 😉
I never thought about what I was doing to my body by drinking so much. I never really exercised. And I ate crappy food (or restricted food so I could maintain a â€œhealthyâ€ weight and still drink a lot). Ugh.
It wasnâ€™t until I graduated and got a real job that I realized I couldnâ€™t keep living like that forever. It was fun while it lasted, and itâ€™s great to relive those days when I see my old friends againâ€¦ but I just canâ€™t do it EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND anymore! My body freaks out.
Side note: I found this cute picture of the Husband and I on my 22nd birthday â€“ I canâ€™t believe this was FOUR YEARS AGO because I remember it so well â€“ I can even tell you who else was at the table and what we talked about! I was very excited because he bought me a Jager Bomb shot and gave me a Little Debbie snack cake with a candle in it.
Weâ€™ve been together for SO LONG (6 years or so!).
Were you an unhealthy college student? Or a healthy one? Any regrets for living the way you did?
