After another week of studying, my friends and I went to orientation. We pretended to be new students for the perks: free cookies, popsicles, t-shirts, stickers. Dishonest? Maybe. A fun bonding experience, ideal for broke college freshman who already knew a thing or two? Definitely.
After our free treats, we were whisked away by our friend with the car to Kale Me Crazy in Midtown. I had never been, but one friend, the health nut had. It was her favorite restaurant, and she wanted to share it with us. As everything on the menu looked amazing, we all eagerly consented.
I got my food, an acai bowl with coconut, banana, granola, and honey. I took pictures. It was pretty. But it was absolutely disgusting.
It had no flavor. It was like eating tasteless slush with fruit seeds in it. It was really cold. The toppings were the best part, but the ratio of material to smoothie was horribly disproportionate. It was also more expensive than a bad smoothie should have been. I don’t know how people do it so regularly.
The thing was, it was weirdly filling. So if you are a health nut, like said friend, and care very little for sugar or a satisfying taste, I’d call you crazy, but you’d love this place.
And even though I didn’t like it, going and trying something new with my friends was really fun. We snuck into Bobby Dodd Stadium and took pictures once we returned. We also went to a few parties and met a ton of new people. It was another fun weekend for the books. Or, the blog.
