The Lunchbox

I’m not ashamed to admit it: My life revolves around food. I plan my next meal at the meal I’m currently eating. I get anxious if I don’t know when I’ll be able to eat. I’m the kind of person who has to eat every few hours. I pity the fools who have to be around me when I’m hungry. It’s so bad that Cory has dubbed this emotionย hanger (hunger + Colleen = anger = hanger). I morph into a hungry hippo, naturally.

That said, I’m a pretty busy bee. I work as an office admin at small counseling center one day a week, I work as a graduate assistant in the Office of Housing and Residence Life at school three days a week, and I have classes at night. I usually leave my apartment around 7:30 AM and don’t return until somewhere between 8:00 – 10:00 PM. I’m really big on eating healthy and being aware of what I’m putting in my body, so I treat going out for lunch or dinner as something special (plus, I’m a grad student – I can’t afford the luxury of eating out!).ย Therefore, my life revolves around my lunchbox ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a slave to habit, so there are always Lunchbox Staples

  • Apple Pie Larabars
  • Two pieces of fruit
  • Dry Cereal (I also consider myself to be a cereal connoisseur. More on that later.)
  • I am also PB&J’s Number One Fan, but I’m trying to grow up branch out a little bit.

So there, friends. Now you know. I’m the 23 year old who still religiously carries a lunchbox to work/school every day. Sorry I’m not sorry ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I may, do you have an actual lunchbox or just a bag or something?

    Because I somehow picture you with one of those old school metal lunchboxes… though I don’t know what to picture ON it, like cartoon-wise or whatever.

      Great question! I have two bag-type lunchboxes. One has polka dots and the other has a black and white paisley pattern. I’d love a metal one though! It would have to have The Beatles on it or something like that ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi,
    Wow you do sounds busy. I’m new to the whole blog world and was just wondering how you manage to do all that? I feel like I never have enough time for anything. I leave the house early and come home late too and I NEVER know what to pack for lunch. Whatever I want always seems so hard to pack. So I’m super excited I found your blog!
