You know what they say—you are what you eat! Take this quiz to find out what your D-Hall food preferences say about your personality.
- You’re in the mood for something super salty. What do you go for? But before I get your answer on that, can you just help me figure out something that’s been on my mind for a while now? You see, I’m having some trouble talking to my girlfriend about some things, and I really don’t want to come off as overbearing or anything, but at the same time I’d like to get this stuff off my chest. Should I just let it go or should I approach her in a calm manner when the timing seems right?
- It’s first thing in the morning and you’ve got an 8 AM class. Do you fill up a thermos with gallons and gallons of coffee, or do you prefer tea or hot chocolate? Now I know if I just let my feelings well up they’re eventually going to boil over and make me resent her for something I could have reconciled sooner, but again—I really don’t want an argument. What do you think? Should I just suck it up? I know she’s bound to realize something’s up on my end so maybe I should just wait until she starts the conversation. Ugh, I just don’t know.
- It’s a simple question with some pretty complex answers: what’s your go-to style of French fry? And here’s another thing: I really don’t like the way she takes forever to text me back, yet if I go ten minutes without responding to her she goes ape shit. I mean, why the double standard? I get it; she’s sometimes busy with stuff and can’t get back to me right away. It’s not so much a big deal anymore and I don’t really mind. But doesn’t she understand that I can be busy, too? What does she really think I’m doing when I’m not responding to her? I’ve told her time and time again that I’ll respond whenever I can, but she still gets mad if I don’t respond right away. Any advice?
- It’s chicken finger Friday and you can smell the frying oil from halfway across campus. Do you rush into D-Hall to be the first on line, go to lunch whenever’s convenient, or skip the whole ordeal entirely? I really do love her and I hate when we fight or are in any sort of funk. She means the world to me and I want to do anything I can to make sure we’re on good terms. But at the same time I don’t want to just relent and ignore my feelings. If I’m spiting my own feelings just for the sake of our relationship, that’s really unhealthy in the long run and will just come back to bite us both in the ass. This is really tough man, and I think some outside advice would really do me some good. What’re your two cents?
- It’s everyone’s favorite holiday—WAFFLEFEST! They’ve got all the breakfast foods under the sun to help us decompress before a long week of final exams. Assuming you’re going to load up your plate with every single item imaginable (and of course you are), which station do you hit first? We’ve been dating for a little over a year now, so I think issues like this shouldn’t come up anymore. Am I wrong? What would you do if you were in my position? Maybe I should just talk to her. She’s my girlfriend for chrissakes. I can tell her anything, so why am I so worried?
- And finally, how do you make the most out of the griddle station at D-Hall? Do you fry up an egg every now and again or don your chef hat and bust out the big guns? Thanks for hearing me out and letting me ramble. You’re a really good friend and I think you’re right. I should just talk to her and listen to what she has to say. A relationship is a two-way street and takes two to tango. If I’m upset by anything she does, I just need to communicate that to her in a way that is compassionate, instead of just yelling at her and getting angry. That’s not what love is about.
Oh, and you’re pancakes or whatever. Congrats!
