Doing a Masters in Osteopathy, so quite medical. We have lots of lectures on eating disorders and mental illness and no one has even figured it out yet.

I am majoring in graphic desing with a journalism minor.

 

I can get through the whole school day without eating, in fact that was one of the major contributors to my weight loss last semester. However, long story, but the gov. messed up my financial aid, and I will not be taking classes. I am dreading it because that means I will be working even more, and I work in a restraunt. Serving food and fasting is a terrible mix.

I'm studying a double degree at the University of Sydney, Australia: Bachelor of Arts (Media & Commmunications) and a Bachelor of Laws. I find it easy concentrating in class because I'm addicted to black coffee so am always kinda buzzing, but I hate it when I'm studying in the law library (only place I can study - home is too distracting!) and my stomach starts growling. It's like, "shut up! I gave you a banana just a few hours ago! behave!!" ;)

MSci in Palaeontology. Half geology, half biology... but this year is mostly biology so I'm really looking forwards to it! :D (I've lost a bit of interest in geology... rocks don't do much, but baby birds? Cuties.  :wub: )

I personally find that I concentrate better when hungry, and I use studying as an excuse not to eat


If you're fat and can't run, how are you ever going to join the Doctor in his TARDIS, explore London with Sherlock and John, or fight demons with Sam and Dean?
Vulcans are logical beings. They do not consume animal flesh and only eat as much as they are required to in order to function and maintain life. Have you ever seen a fat Vulcan? No. Conclusion- obesity is illogical.
