When I was in college my mom sent me a card. The card was perfect for a college student stressed out with classes, a girl with a gigantic sweet tooth and someone who likes to pack a lunch that consists of as many little baggies of food as I can get away with! There's nothing like snacking your way through the day when you're stuck staring at databases all day (it's mostly healthy, don't worry!) I saved the card and have it to this day but the message permanently etched itself into my brain from the first moment I read it.
"When things are bad and getting worse, keep a cookie in your purse."
Now those are words to live by!
