War of the Worlds Macs at Ramseyer

 

Enormous tripod alien robot ominously looming in the background, destroying a busy city while panicked people are in awe and trying to escape.“GO! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!….oh…cool,” is pretty much how my sci-fi marinated brain processed the War-of-the-Worlds-esque Mobile Mac desks in Ramseyer 260 a.k.a. Ramseyer College Commons.

My main course goes up top in the larger container, and I make a point to pack the bottom container with a side of fruit and/or veggies to snack on. Having a healthy lunch in conjunction with my new favorite breakfast of refrigerator oatmeal has been my routine for the past several weeks, and I feel awesome!
