Union Oyster House, Boston

I find my carnivore of a boyfriend’s personal food mantra fascinating: if he has to fight with his food (pretty much anything that goes beyond slicing with a knife/picking up with a fork), he doesn’t want it. Case in point — his idea of a regular, fail-safe meal: entrecote. With that being said, it’s a good thing he’s very open to trying new culinary delights otherwise, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I were to restrict to his usual meat-rich, dietary preferences.  Y’all know me… I like to have a bit of a balance from all food groups: meat, vegetables, carbs, seafood, etc.

Imagine a world in which your entire possession is one raspberry and you give it to your friend.

Speechless.

It must be a true privilege to be educated here; this university is not for everybody. Not only you have to excel academically, you’re also required to have an extraordinary access to financial resources. Blah blah blah, yaddi yaddi yadda.
