Finally, the dread full, tiring, soul quenching weeks have come to the end. Truth to be told, these couple weeks were the only time I really squeezed my brain to focus on my studies. I still wonder why I came for the 6 months of lectures if I only learn something towards the end. After all, the lecturers were pay top dollars and when you don’t get anything back from them, it sure the hell waste of money.
Anyhow, I am not going to talk about how the education system sucks, but instead, I am going touch on the subject of “knowledge” and my desire for “food” especially during the study week. If you don’t know what it feel like, it quite the same when woman is pregnant. Crave for food and sometimes, for something that quite extraordinary – has anyone has a craved for unicorn? Well, I craved for peanut butter!
In case you haven’t notice, the more you are learning about something new, the more you realize that there are still lots that you do not know anything about. In the end, it will end up in a circle of craziness in search of knowledge. Some people just surrender half the way, but I just end it up with food, lots of it.
Since my college library does not allowed students to bring in food and since it’s ridiculous even to think that we could survive without food and water in the 15 degree Celsius building, which is considered cold in Malaysia since the relative temperature usually around 30 degree. Oh, and it’s getting colder by each level – how cool is that? It is an implementation of dry adiabatic lapse rate!
So, as uncreative as we are, we found a way to sneak in food and canned drinks. When I was still wondering how the hell I could bring in my peanut butter jar into the library, some of my friends already start stuffing their pockets of baggy jeans and sweaters with packets of food. With all the food in their sweater, I swear that one of my friends amazingly manage to look like Santa Clause!
Since the peanut butter jar is too big and it’s look kinda weird when you are quietly licking your spoon of full with peanut butter *yummy!* while others are studying, I settle with packet of M&M and some canned coffees.
What is up with food and study? Well, I am not sure if there already a scientific finding out there about how these two are related, but in my semi professional deduction, when we crunching our teeth together, our mind are stimulated by this action. It then will divert our mind from getting sleepy – a common syndrome while studying. The calories and energy is the plus.
So, go and grab your book and a spoon of peanut butter and start reading! Make sure you do exercise after that though. You don’t want to look fat after this entire hectic end, do you?
Have a nice day! I am going to start packing to go home! Yippee~
