To eat or not to eat – that is the question!

Vera Ulitina

When I tell people that I have breakfast every day and that I actually enjoy it, I usually get surprised looks from them and a lot of inquiries about how a human being is able eat anything in the morning when food just wants to escape your stomach the moment it gets there.

I can understand it, because I’ve been treating breakfast like that for the most part of my life.

Even though I never skipped breakfast, I had it without any pleasure, more just because everyone in my family had breakfast in the morning. That was back when I was attending middle school and wasn’t busy enough to ever feel extremely tired or test the limits of my endurance.

Now I am a full-time student at college who actively participates in a number of college activities, works the night shift, and also manages to find some time to spend with friends.

I need a lot of extra energy, especially when my body has to live through the day on a couple hours of sleep.
Yes, some of you will say that in this case I should have an energy drink and I’ll be ready to go. But caffeine does not give your body energy. It actually steals energy from you, making you hyper for another couple of hours, but draining all your power.

Caffeine is good in an extreme situation, but in case you constantly experience periodical lack of sleep it might be not that good of a solution. You will be completely exhausted in a couple of weeks.

Nothing will ever substitute the lack of sleep, but breakfast is the only thing that can actually help me make it through the day staying relatively active during class.

If you sleep few hours and drink caffeine instead of eating breakfast, you will deprive your body of vital energy.

You come home from college to find that your room has been converted into an office space. Disappointment. You drop the picture of you and your late grandmother to find the glass shattered into a million pieces. Disappointment.


Senate leadership lacks transparency

22 hours ago

The talk of the town is this weekend’s lockdown, and there are plenty of articles to read in this week’s edition.

However, I’d be failing my job as a journalist and government watchdog if I didn’t offer needed commentary about the failure of transparency in the Student Senate.

Where is the outrage for Nigeria?

Jan. 22, 2015

No marches were held, no rallies organized, no world leaders vowed solidarity. After all, this was not an attack on “Western” soil. This was not an attack on freedom of speech, this was not an “assault on our values.”


Technology does not define us

Jan. 22, 2015

Over the break, The Hallmark Channel was having a Hart to Hart marathon that I found myself watching because, let’s face it, Jonathan Hart was a dreamy, self-made millionaire and what’s not to love? Plus, who doesn’t like a good early 80s murder mystery show?
