How to be a future head of state

Sitting and having a cup of coffee and reading a little Sachs in the SIPA (School of International and Public Affairs) cafe between classes, I am struck by the demographics of the place. I'm pretty sure that I outweigh almost every single person in here. In order to be a graduate student of IR, you apparently have to be skinny and beautiful, not to mention foreign and exotic. All of these women are studious but gorgeous, and well-accessorized. They also ALL eat yogurt. Of the 5 women I am observing, 4 of them have eaten a yogurt sometime in the past half hour.

The SIPA diet:

- Water
- Coffee
- Yogurt
- Thick and foreboding coursepack
