You know how a taste or a smell can instantly transport you back to a different place and time in your memory. It's just like click, and you are remembering something you haven't thought of forever.
I just poured myself a glass of orange juice and the first sip instantly took me back to my freshman year of college when one of the main things I lived off of was orange juice and ham and cheese sandwiches. I lived in the dorms, but the ones that were set up like apartments so six of us shared a kitchen. I had a friend that assured me that drinking orange juice kept colds away, not to mention that for the first time in my life I was aware that pulp free orange juice was available. Who could have imagined? It was like a dream come true.
Other things I lived off of that first year of college:
bean and cheese burritos (with "stolen" packets of Taco Bell mild sauce)
bowls of cereal
It's a wonder I was healthy at all. I'm sure I rarely ate vegetables or meat.
What did you live off of the first year you were on your own?
