The dining halls are terrible on campus. I avoid them like the plague, and Sodexho (the company that runs the dining halls) takes my unreturnable money every week for every meal I don't use. I end up eating only once or twice each day because I hate going to the dining halls that much. Many times I just eat out to further avoid setting foot in a dining hall.
Aside from breakfast this morning, the last time I ate at a dining hall I grabbed two hamburgers, four cookies, and probably something to drink. They were promptly scarfed down, and I left feeling ill, unhappy that I didn't just skip lunch that day.
I don't know why I hate eating in the dining halls. I think I've just gotten sick of running into the people I see there. Most times nowadays I eat alone, feeling worse with every bite. If someone sits with me, I rarely enjoy the company. It's a strange malady for me, to dislike eating and being around people.
