Late night trips to Walmart

Midnight is quickly approaching and you have just finished your homework. You’re starving and want to eat but soon come to the realization that a majority of the fast food places you crave during the day are closed, so you resort to the almighty Walmart.

You never know what the weather is going to be, so you walk out in your lazy shorts and cozy long sleeve, but the weather has turned cold, and you now instantly regret not checking the weather app on your phone before leaving.

Late-night trips to Walmart can be detrimental in a way. While it’s so hard to resist the temptation of buying more than what you need, us students must stand strong. 

Do I need more cereal? Do I need unnecessary amounts of coffee creamer? Do I need to buy more scents for my scentsy? The answer to all of those questions is yes. You’re broke, but does that matter? Not at all. Remember, your parents will pay for you when no one else can. There is no such thing as a negative bank balance. 

Now for those who have jobs, be careful. That $200 check for working a pitiful minimum wage will persuade you to go on a grocery spree and buy things you never thought you would buy in a long time. 

Seeing one or two cars with MSU parking stickers in the parking lot is always a relief. This lets you know that you’re not alone. Late-night Walmart runs are a thing, and they’re not going away anytime soon. Who could ever turn down all that Walmart has to offer? I myself just came back from a late-night trip. Altogether, I bought milk, bagels, eggs and candy. Could’ve done without the candy, but it’s much needed given the stress and unfair amounts of homework that college throws at us. 

So if you’re feeling hungry late at night and are absolutely craving your favorite foods, don’t hesitate to grab a friend, or even go by yourself, to the local Walmart.
