I had a meeting on the University of Central Florida (UCF) campus this morning… UCF is SO BIG! I totally got lost trying to find the right building.
I went to the University of Pittsburgh from 2002 – 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 you’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 it’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! I’ve seen it on Jenna’s blog so much, but I’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 haven’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 wasn’t a total bum – 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 “healthy” weight and still drink a lot). Ugh.
It wasn’t until I graduated and got a real job that I realized I couldn’t keep living like that forever. It was fun while it lasted, and it’s great to relive those days when I see my old friends again… but I just can’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 – I can’t believe this was FOUR YEARS AGO because I remember it so well – 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.
We’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?
i was actually extremely healthy! i worked out all the time, played intramural sports, and ate very healthfully…i didn’t have anything else to do at the time, which made it easy 🙂
