The worst feeling is in the world is hunger. The worstest feeling in the world is hunger during midnight.
Like a zit smack in the middle of your face, midnight hunger grows bigger and stronger by the minute. Sad thing is, there’s no easy fix for it as you can’t go anywhere because everywhere’s closed so you’re forced to make-do with what’s left in your cupboard.
When experiencing midnight hunger, the first thought is, “I require a big pile of something to satisfy my craving.”
Most of the time, that something doesn’t necessarily have to make sense—like Spam and Nutella, or a cheese omelette piled with catsup, mustard, and mayonnaise. Your gut’s screaming it wants carbs and meat or something ridiculous and filling, but your brain’s screaming, “How?!”
This is why we have created someone who can sympathize with you: The Desperate College Kid.
It is he who knows the calling of the midnight grumbling, he who knows the sad and pathetic sight of a wallet that’s been emptied out on booze and photocopies, and he who takes refuge in sari-sari stores and 7/11s (or MiniStops) for cheap meals to survive until he gets his next allowance.
He is your brother and your best friend…or the man in the mirror.
For Desperate College Kid’s first post, we’d like to satisfy your urgent pasta craving.
The thing is, real and good pasta require effort and ingredients. Desperate College Kid has neither of those. He just wants to eat something pasta-like enough so he can get back to doing his all-nighter—productive or not. All he has are some nourishment supplies that were intended to last him in the event of a zombie apocalypse (or he’s just run out of money) and some cooking instruments. It is his talent to improvise or close his eyes and imagine genuine Italian herbs and spices flowing into his mouth as spoonful after spoonful of panton (pancit canton) pass through his lips. The logic behind it is that if it works, it works.
And this definitely works.
