First of all I really feel it is necessary for me to make an open apology. No, not to dining because they thought my last column was encouraging thievery so they reported me to the conduct office. Even though I was actually doing the opposite by exposing how easy it is and the ridiculous reasons why students choose to steal. I mean, what the fuck? I know I suck at writing but am I so bad that I did the exact opposite of what I meant to do? Everything from that column was what I learned from other students, I just wrote it down. (Exact quote referring to what people told me: "Some of their answers were down right hysterical. I was surprised at how many students admitted to stealing cups, plates, coffee mugs, silverware the old salt and pepper shakers and even trays." Half of the people I asked admitted to taking shit and dining points the finger at me. Well, I'm pointing one back at them too. (And it is the bad one). We all loose out when students steal, and even if my sample was small it is pretty obvious that a lot of money goes to waste from all the little things adding up. I didn't say that in the column because I figured people would be smart enough to make that connection on their own. Is that really the column or post that could get me in trouble? The one time I don't talk about underage drinking or drugs! Fuck. Don't worry, next week's column will encourage parties so I should be fine.
I do however owe an apology to my fellow students. Starting on February 8th there was a new food truck on campus. They are called "Irie Taco" and are located next to the lower quad, where the dumpsters are between C-Lot and Engelhardt. I just saw it this morning and as at the campuses premier blogger I feel as though I should have been all over that shit on day one. I haven't had a chance to eat their food yet but you can find their menu here. I have heard that they are really good and have decent prices: $1 soda cans, $2.50 for tacos and around $5 for burritos. I was told they are only here during the day, and I'm not sure if they plan on staying late on weekends, but I'll try to find out ASAP.
While I was walking around campus this morning, running some errands before the weekend and I realized that there are some little things that make me happy. For example, perfectly timing the walk signal at the intersection across from the Whit when there is a lot of traffic. Or getting two items from a vending machine when I only pay for one. Okay, that is all I got for now. Enjoy you're thirsty Thursday and if you don't have plans you should all attend the men's basketball game tonight against Binghamton at 7. The coach and players have really appreciated the bigger crowds and they need good momentum heading into the final stretch of the season. Plus, they are giving out free T-shirts again.
Stay classy, not UMassy.
