This is a question to ask yourself “what is your favorite part of the day?” My favorite part of the day is lunch, breakfast, or dinner. Whether it is in cooper, pathfinder, or even Mackin (which is a little too far for my taste buds). But my friends and I realize that the best parts of our days are when we are all eating together. I’m pretty sure many of you can also attest to this. Sometimes I spend more than an hour in the dining halls, and the only time when I leave early is when I have to run to a meeting or I have a class. But my friends and I love to sit in the dining hall and talk for hours.
Sometimes our conversations are about sweet nothings, other times they are about the same nonsense we talk about every day. But for the most part those conversations can be meaningful, whether we are complaining about professors (which we have to do every once in awhile), talking about family, what’s going on in the world around us, making fun of someone who cannot find a seat (so they spin around as if they are waiting to be escorted), or whether we are sitting by the window taking in our beautiful campus. I realize it is so important for me to just relax and enjoy myself for two complete hours or more ;-). Eating is supposed to bring pleasure and how much pleasure can you have when you are eating your favorite meal with the people you love the most.
But honestly ask yourself what is your favorite time of the day, but you must take some time to really think about it, and if you realize that your favorite part of the day is eating with your friends then you must know what it feels like when the dining hall staff ask you to “please empty your tray whenever you are finish eating,” when they see all of the napkins piled up on your plate; which clearly indicates that you are finish eating, We love their polite way of asking us to please leave!!!!
