Post-Holiday/Post-Finals Update

29 Dec


With that out of the way, I’d just like to say that I survived finals and the holidays, and that I’m going to be back up and blogging soon!

My small Jersey Shore town, appropriate given the subject matter of the locally shot MTV show of the same name, is full of pricey (on a student budget) tex mex and red sauce Italian food. There’s also Chinese takeout, but really now: you can only say so much about beef with broccoli before it becomes boring. This would be where Wawa comes in.
