We all had our rough times in college. Between tests, essays, meeting with professors, and binge drinking, it’s not often you have the time or money to prepare your own nutritionally balanced meal. Did I once eat a whole box of Cocoa Puffs in one day? Yes. Am I ashamed of it? Kinda. Would I do it again? Don’t tempt me.

With that in mind, contributors to the Tumblr Shit Students Cook should be commended for doing more than pouring milk and cereal into a bowl. They should not, however, be commended for their culinary skills. This stuff is nasty. It’s shiny and greasy and sugarpacked and often looks sat-on. Check out more photos of the #struggleplates here.

If you’re a student and think you’ve got what it takes, submit a pic of your latest creation. Just please, nothing that looks like its already been eaten. (We’re looking at you, “Cajun Chicken Omelet With an Egg.”)
