There is this place on campus called The Pit Stop, and it provides the best stress relief! Seriously, it has the power to make those stressful moments in life better. How, you ask? Through delicious smoothies. My personal favorite is the Blue Moon. It has fresh blueberry, raspberry, pomegranate, and banana mixed with orange sherbet and ice. It is the best thing I have ever tasted!
Today was a very exciting day for me at The Pit Stop! I got a free smoothie for redeeming my punch card!! This semester The Pit Stop and The Loft (another coffee and smoothie shop on campus) started doing Smoothie Frequent Buyer punch cards. When you get 10 punches on the card, you get a free smoothie. Being the smoothie addict that I am, it only took me about 6 weeks to fill my card.
So today I went to The Pit Stop and I redeemed my card for my free Blue Moon! It was just what I needed to prepare for the stressful week ahead. Like I said before, The Pit Stop smoothies are perfect stress relief!
Usually I frequent The Pit Stop when I am having a rough day or after a class I didn’t enjoy. I don’t know why, but the place just makes everything better. Last year, it became a tradition for my friend Emily and I to get smoothies after our accounting class or when we would work on accounting homework together. “Screw accounting, let’s get smoothies!” became a common phrase for us.
Now that I live in Morrison Hall and The Pit Stop is conveniently only a few floors and a walk across the Skyway away, it is extremely easy to get a smoothie whenever I feel like it. In fact, a majority of my eXpress dollars have been spent at The Pit Stop. It has even become a habit for my roommate Rochelle and I to go The Pit Stop for a late night smoothie or milkshake. We put on our fun slippers (mine have polar bears!) and sweats, and we venture down to The Pit Stop.
The Pit Stop is definitely (and probably always will be) my favorite place on campus! It has a small, homey feeling, and it is always decorated according to the current season/holiday. Plus, Rochelle and I are such frequent customers that the owner recognizes us and loves when we visit.
Now I get to start a whole new punch card!
