With busy schedules stuffed full of homework, class, and extracurriculars, most everyone I know has had a day where they found it nearly impossible to keep their eyes open. On days like that, a nice cup of coffee and some food on the stomach makes all the difference.
However, many of the people I know who eat breakfast have trouble coming up with ideas to keep it interesting, and of them, a few wonder: why take the time to make it when you could be memorizing that pesky last formula?
The solution is simple: use instant coffee to make instant ramen, effectively killing two birds with one stone.
