Chip bags, boxes, and containers are all over the place. Wrappers and plates fill the trash can. Almost everyone has a bottle or cup near him or her. By the look of the place, you would have thought you were in a war zone. Actually, if you were seeing this, you would be in the SJP Newsroom.
Everyone knows that teenagers are snack fiends and the SJP crew is no exception. When we are sitting in front of our computers, Typing away into the wee hours of the night, we just need a snack fix; a small pick me up. In come our counselors to the rescue, lugging bags of goodies to rally the troops. In a matter of moments, we devour almost every morsel. The cookies are completed; the chips are no more, just casualties of the midnight snacking war. After a long day of hard work, we trek back to the dorms, our minds pushed to the limit, our eyes heavy, and our stomachs full and happy.
But that’s just us. We are hungry for knowledge and snacks. Welcome to the SJP life.
