well...i'm really ready for college....just wanna comment on why only rich students have d oppotunity to study full-time.. that's not true...there r universities that will provide u everything...and don't forget EOF-doesn't need good grades...financial aids or merit scholarships-needs a good grades tho... anyways about eating... i think cooking some rice and noodles with eggs (a good choice)...^-^

I do both and most of the time I rely on fast food joints that are open late and instant ramen.


Ha, That's pretty unhealthy, tons of sodium and unrefined carbs. You should try to cook sometimes =)
but i guess for a full time college that'd be a hassle.

Sometimes symptoms of diseases caused by our not-so-healthy lifestyle appears as we get older. Goodluck to your 50's! *kidding* xp

Did you ask for a meal plan to be included in your tuition? If not, dollar menu, ramen noodles, and ask yuor parents for money for food. You could also get discount cards from the grocery store to save money on food.

Yeah I used to eat ramen for a couple of months... very unhealthy and you'll feel the lack of energy throughout the day. After 6months I started buying/shopping right so I would stock up on food that wouldn't be hard to heatup/cook and will be quick on the go at the same time not being too unhealthy with foods that have uber sodium/preservatives and when I had time I would cook something up so by the last years at the uni I got used to eating right/buying smart etc...

cook in bulk...then freeze it.

also helps having a microwave oven and a camper stove.

it's really hard balancing both work and studies... i do study full time and work 24hrs a week...

and when im at University, i don't find anytime to eat either... most of the time i find myself eating unhealthy food provided by our beloved vending machine.. lol

I'm a full time student, and I know how hard it is to "suffer" I'm completely independent from my bitch-ass parents (they don't believe I should be educated), I have to pay for tuition, and I work part time, just to try and make ends me, but I work at a restaurant, so food is a lot cheaper for me, if it ain't on the house, (but I also work 2 years prior and saved up),

and I hate instant noddles, and vending machines

Well every week at my university there are free sausage sizzles on wednesday, breakfast every thursday (cereal, bacon, eggs ,toast etc.) and there are days where people give out free fruit, noodles, morning tea or something.
Our uni is situated near lots of food shops too like subway, red rooster, nandos, chilliz so there's always an option, plus we get discounts for food both on and off campus when you join clubs or get guild.

But I buy food at uni often and it takes up quite a bit of money over time. So I'm starting to bring food from home now too.

I also did this. working at a place that serves food is a great place to work when you are a student.
At least once every night a customer will complain about the food and send it back, we are supposed to throw it away but i just throw it in a to go box and set it aside for my dinner. Usually these last me a full day, just by eating until i am satisfied.
You can also shake vending machines until they give you a weeks worth of drinks. the only thing in my fridge that is mine is a packet of meat, cheese, and crackers.
Also having a room mate really helps pay bills. somehow i get by just fine with cash to spare and spend on books or other things.
