Hangry ??? hangry = a state of anger caused by lack of food; hunger causing a negative change in emotional state
Being hangry is never a good emotional state. But I found it quite funny that there is an actual entry in some dictionaries existing.
Ok a hangry student isn’t good for our environment. And I know that you all have to go to a big change. In school you may had a cafeteria or your parents were cooking for you. Now you are on your own. And I know that this could be a hard time. There are young people who love to cook. That’s grand. And there are some who are not interested or experienced in cooking. Fortunately I love to cook. However I want to help you not to starve or get hangry.
So first of all on the campus you have a lot of places to eat. There are some different types of places for example cafés, pubs or restaurants. So just go there, read the menu and pick your favorite. Because when it comes to food everybody has their own taste. If you just want to have a quick snack or a drink. Fine. You can get that to. Or you can just go to the spar on campus. It will provide you with a ton of groceries and a lot more.
Personally throughout the week my schedule is different on each and every day. So sometimes I have a nice lunch break. But at times I don’t. So what I like to do is bring me a sandwich or snack from home. It is really easy and helps me to survive the day ;).
Another great thing is the Farmer’s Market, which takes place every Tuesday from around 12pm to 5pm in the Students Union Courtyard. There you can find different local food, snacks and so much more. You really have to check that out.
I hope you are not starving right now. If so find yourself around campus and try the amount of possibilities.
