As a young girl, I was outraged about having to go to school on Halloween. However, as I've gotten older I've come to realize that it is the day after Halloween that I would prefer to have off. Although Halloween has come and gone, college has not. Yes, your attendance is still expected in your 8 am no matter how many candy-inspired drinks you downed the night before.
After reflecting on some of the sweets I devoured post trick-or-treating as a kid, I have compiled a list of candies that perfectly reflect common college experiences that every student will inevitably have.
1. Sleeping Through Class: Candy Corn
2. Doing Poorly On An Assignment You Thought You Did Well On: Airheads
3. Justifying That An Unhealthy Food Is Healthy: Reese's
4. Eating Candy for Breakfast: Stuffed Pancakes
We all have those days when we wake up with a sweet tooth. Sometimes a sugary cereal does the job, but other days Frosted Flakes just won't cut it. If you're going to eat candy for breakfast, you may as well do it the right way with a delectable dish rather than just a handful of M&M's out of the bag. Try out these candy-stuffed pancakes. Not a pancake enthusiast? Check out these 11 ways to eat candy for breakfast.
5. You Need A Breather: Take 5
Every now and then you swear all your professors meet up and decide to bombard you with huge assignments all due on the same day. I promise you, they don't. Although it feels like the universe is plotting against you, remember to Take 5 for some rest and relaxation.
6. The Party Is Lit: Pop Rocks
7. You Need To Be Saved: Lifesavers
Your hangover may leave you needing one, and your professor canceling class may be one. Lifesavers can be difficult to find at times when you feel like you need them most, but other times they show up unannounced. Count your blessings when they do.Some of these experiences are more fun than others, but they are all a part of college that you simply cannot avoid. If one of these hasn't happened to you yet, it's on its way. Also, for those of you who prefer to indulge in ice cream rather than candy, go relate your college experiences to these Ben & Jerry's flavors.
