Finishing my Flex Points
My meal plan came with $150 for the vending machines, which at the start of the semester seemed insane. Who could possibly spend that much on vending machines? As the semester wore on I did spend a decent amount, pop tarts were my only breakfast option when we had home games, and while I know that bottles of water are wasteful, the tap water here tastes like iron. I didn't use all of my money though, not even close, and as the semester drew to a close I realized that I had better get spending (They don't roll over any leftover money, it's just gone.). I had been intrigued by the condoms in the vending machine all semester. They come in a flat, white, rectangular box plainly labeled "Condoms" and if nothing else I wanted the box. They were also the most expensive thing in the machine, so that was good. I opened the box, and to my delight they come in a variety of cheerful colors! CWB bought a lot of condoms too, but refused to trade them like POGS the way I wanted to. The whole flex points system seems very wasteful to me, but it was undeniably fun finishing my card. I had $.40 left though, so I guess Geneseo wins.
