In the old Pokemon series, there was a move called Rage. The general objective of the move was to build up as much energy as possible before the enemy Pokemon could defeat you.

Your Pokemon would win the match.

Transitioning into living in a college dorm is no easy feat, especially for those of us used to home-cooked meals and an accessible kitchen poised for everything from baked lasagna to an elaborate birthday cake. But when it’s 9:00 a.m. and you have a class in an hour, getting out of bed to run to TDR or braving the line at Einstein’s can be more of a battle than waking up itself.
