today, i went to the cannon center. :) i have never been there before. i couldn't have asked for a better first experience.
part of me didn't want to because of the whole all you can eat bit...i never feel like i eat enough and that i shouldn't leave without trying everything. i hate that feeling because for years i have been working on my relationship with food, and being content with feeling full. additionally, i didn't want to go there by myself and since mostly freshman frequent this place it is hard to find friends that want to go. another concern for me is price: will it be worth it? plus, if you never experience something you don't have to form opinions about it and i seemed happy with my comment "oh! i've never been, but i've heard only good things." with all the wonderful things i had heard i was always worried that the cannon center wouldn't live up to its reputation.
i'm so glad i went to the cannon center today. it was a spontaneous choice. i was going to just get a 99 cent taco from taco bell, but then mr. fisher's best friend mr. fields offered to treat us to lunch, which was so kind of him. thank you mr. fields! we went to the cannon and it was better than i'd ever imagined. it was brightly decorated and clean. there were so many food options. i had ravioli, lemon jello, a maple bar, strawberries, kiwi, honeydew, grapes, curly fries, orange-guava juice, chocolate milk...i'll admit not my healthiest meal, but not my most unhealthiest meal either. everything was tasty! the atmosphere was pleasant and the conversation with friends: fabulous. all and all way better than a taco.
