What did you miss while at boarding school?
#1: Decent food. Our food was LITERALLY prison-grade. Literally. After they got rid of Total cereal, I ended up on a binge and starve diet (eating mainly on the weekends at home) that I am sure was not good for my long-term health. I was probably the only college freshman who didn’t complain about the cafeteria food at college because it was so much better.
#2: The food was @#$@#%, I guess. I missed having a room to myself. OTOH, I got a semi-private bath out of the deal, which kind of makes up for it.
#1: Oh, yes, I also missed having my own room and being able to decide for myself that I wanted to go to bed at 9:30pm (so as to wake up for my 7am class) and not have to wait for a roommate who stayed up until midnight to stop making noise. Ugh. I wrote about my need for sleep as why I needed a single pretty extensively in my college acceptance materials. I must have convinced them.
