Remember the charged up conversation between Jenny and her Headmistress?
Headmistress: Nobody does anything worth doing without a degree.
Jenny: Nobody does anything worth doing WITH a degree. No woman anyway.
Headmistress: So what I do isn't worth doing? Or what Miss Stubbs does, or Mrs Wilson, or any of us here? Because none of us would be here without a degree. You do realize that, don't you? And yes, of course studying is hard and boring..
Jenny: Boring!
Headmistress: I'm sorry? 
Jenny: Studying is hard and boring. Teaching is hard and boring. So, what you're telling me is to be bored, and then bored, and finally bored again, but this time for the rest of my life? This whole stupid country is bored! There's no life in it, or color, or fun! It's probably just as well the Russians are gonna drop a nuclear bomb on us any day now. So my choice is to do something hard and boring, or to marry my... Jew, and go to Paris and Rome and listen to jazz, and read, and eat good food in nice restaurants, and have fun! It's not enough to educate us anymore Ms. Walters. You've got to tell us why we're doing it.

As much as I want to gush about this movie, I will not.
I've done it too many times and it gets rather tedious.
And it has been several months since I've seen it hence the tedious gushing.
People and conversation.
Bellow is all that I'm going to eat tonight.
When you're a student, away from home, cooking a proper meal is the least of your worries.
Thai chicken rice porridge, add to that some local made beef pickle, cream cheese crackers and you're good.
