Dark outside already?
Happy Friday everyone! The week is finally over, but it’s not just any weekend—it’s Freshman Parents Weekend (cue the impending shrieks from parents upon seeing that their children’s under-bed storage has become a living dust sculpture exhibition)! Here are some lies freshmen will probably tell their parents this weekend:

“Yep, don’t worry! I eat balanced meals every day!”
Truth: If by balanced you mean skipping dinner because it’s mysterious meat in an even more mysterious sauce and then consuming 50 million grams of sugar on the cereal at Brain Break (s/o to Cinnamon Toasters, Apple Zings, and Honey Graham Squares– keep on rocking), then yes.

“I love the MAC! I have free access to a great quality gym so I can stay fit and healthy!”
Truth: Sorry, Mom. Those $100 Lululemon yoga pants I just ordered online using your credit card are never actually going to hit the gym. They’re more for show, like for when I want to appear sporty chic and make people think I work out.

“Yeah, it’d be great if you could put more money into my savings account because I spent all my money on textbooks.”
Truth: Why buy textbooks when you can find questionable PDF versions of them online and spend that money instead on Chipotle?
