Your coffee budget will exceed your food budget:
Sure, food gives you energy–but not as much as a venti latte does. And that is the type of energy you’ll need to juggle three internships, two jobs, and twenty credits. So hopefully you like coffee, because you are about to spend a lot of money on it. If you try to bunk this rule freshman year by purchasing your own coffee machine, prepare to engage in a game of cat and mouse with your RA–they are contraband in the FIT dorms. Of course, being the rebel that I am, I decided it would be a good idea to try it out anyway. So for a year, I would sprint down my hallway to obtain some water from the bathroom, and then sprint back and hide behind columns in an effort to avoid getting caught. Believe me when I say that this would not be fun for most people—I’m not normal, and therefore, wouldn’t recommend it. Just go to Starbucks and eat some crackers if you need some solid food.
