The Breakfast Chaches of Rollins T2 2015

The Breakfast Chaches consisted of Annika, Anushka, Laura, Mel, Angie, Jessica, Sarah, Ashley, Carlos, Angel, Jack, and Nathan. Though Jackson, Rachel, and Pablo didn't join us for our famous mornings, they were still considered to be a part of the group as a whole.

Who We Were

The Breakfast Chaches was a group of friends that had breakfast every day of the term at 8 o'clock sharp. We met on the second floor kitchen at 7:45 on a daily basis, and certain people (namely, Nathan, who always stayed up until one watching Netflix) were always late, causing some very angry texts to be sent in the groupchat. Before we left for the dining hall, a lanyard check would be conducted, and at least one person would have to go back for their lanyard (usually Mel or Laura), slowing down the whole group, and putting Annika, the obvious mom of the group, in a very bad mood.

How We Met & How It Started

There wasn't really any specific way as to how we all met each other, but they were all significant in a way. Anushka, Annika, Laura, Angie, and Mel lived on the same floor (Laura and Anushka were roommates, and their RC told them that she would've never imagined two people to get along so well with each other), (Mel Giquel and Angie Gonzalez were in the same RC group and immediately became inseparable and are still best friends today), Angie Gonzales and Angel Muse were in the same class together, Annika, Sarah, Jess, and Ashley were in the same class (WonderWarts), Laura and Carlos were in the same class (Creative Writing), Anushka and Rachel were in the same class (Aquatic Biology), Jackson was Annika's friend back home, Carlos, Nathan, and Jack lived on the same floor, Tony had taken an interest in Mel, and Pablo was popular all around. One day at breakfast, we happened to be discussing TiP songs, and we realized how we were so similar to the infamous Breakfast Club: a group of friends from different places with completely diverse personalities come together and realize they weren't so divergent after all. We spoke about how the song "Don't You (Forget About Me)" was a great TiP song and came to the conclusion that we were the Breakfast Club! So we changed up the name to Breakfast Chaches because we were all chaches.

"But," you must be thinking, "what exactly is a chach?" and we are glad you asked. A term first coined by Jack and Carlos, a chach, pronounced ch-aw-ch, is a word used to describe someone who tries to look cool and popular, but comes across as a loser or a try hard. We, in no form, considered ourselves to be actual losers, we just thought it was funny because some of the guys did try to impress us girls and did come across as kind of loser-ish. We laughed about it then, and we laugh about it now. No hard feelings.

What We Had For Breakfast

Not two single people ever had the same thing for breakfast. Annika would always crave potatoes, but was too lazy to stand in line, forcing her to glumly eat fruit loops. Anushka would eat yogurt and Nutella since had Celiac Disease, more commonly known as a gluten allergy. Mel, Jess, Angie, and Laura would get coffee, but would become extremely enraged when the Volleyball Girls took all the French Vanilla. Laura, who also had teo biscuits every morning, once forced Carlos to try the coffee, but he simply despised it. Sarah would usually get Nutella, and we would always end up giggling because she would get it all over herself. The guys would just get a large and diverse plate every morning; they never failed to surprise us.

Things That Happened At Breakfast

Breakast in the Dining Hall seemed to become more exotic every day the time passed. Annika threw a tater tot at the Volleyball Girls, and almost died from their death glares (in all fairness, they deserved it). Laura threw up on their last breakfast together because of Carlos' horrible Fetty Wap joke, and he even waited outside to make sure she was alright afterwards. Faily fits were thrown when there was no more French Vanilla. Ashley once brought up the fact that we would all need sticks up our butts at 50, which we mistook for 15, and scared poor, innocent Jaxson away. Anushka lost her coffee virginity (!!!). We created our very own messed up family tree, which we cannot even begin to explain without sounding absolutely mental. And, obviously, we talked about memes (mostly Pepe).

Speaking of the Volleyball Girls, not only did those "hores" take all our french vanilla, but they had the NERVE to take all the forks. I mean, who does that? Volleyball Girls, that's who. But don't get me wrong, ID Tech was just as bad, if not worse. They were (well, still are) our rival camp. They would delay our lunch and dinner because they didn't know how to make a line or keep track of time. For such smart kids, they had a lot of trouble moving forward.

Hallway Parties

It all started when Mel and Annika were folding their laundry in first floor hallway. Angie came, probably because she was bored, but she ended up folding laundry, too. Tony came down from his godforsaken floor and, after Mel hurriedly hid her bras, he also started folding. After that, everyone began coming down and it was born. It was usually Mel, Annika, Angie, Angel, Tony, Sarah, Laura, Carlos, Anushka, Nathan, Jack, and Jess.

Hallway parties took place on the first floor's carpeted hallway (the only carpeted hallway in the whole building, aka Annika's hall). It was the corner hall toward the right side of the building. Since nobody would walk through there because it was a dead end that housed only a few dorms,, they decided to use it as their get together hall. Many relationTiPs were created there. For example, Caura (or Larlos) was created right beside the hall in the laundry room when Carlos asked Laura to the last dance after banging his head repeatedly against a washing machine because he was so nervous. (Laura even got him to shave his mustache! It was more romantic than it sounds.) Janushka was also created there after convincing Jack to muster the courage to ask Anushka to the last dance. The most cringe-worthy relationTIP created there, in Annika's AND ONLY ANNIKA'S opinion, was Mel/Jackson from Jacksonville. (They dated after tip for a year and a half, but they eventually broke it off.) We would play music, snapchat, learn things about each other, do each other's nails (even the guys), air out their middle nail (once again, Nathan), talk about relationTiPs, look at Pepes, order food, eat, get yelled at for screaming too much, and most importantly, make memories. Jess would also sing and play guitar, and Mel would play the viola. On the final day of camp, it was the Termbook signing hall for most of the building. That hall holds many, many memories, laughs, inside jokes, and soiled tissues from the last day.

The hallway was also the site of many... accidents. For starters, our previously mentioned Nathan suddenly found it in him to violently murder all of the Janushka babies by kneeing Jack in the balls. We shamelessly laughed for ages. On the last night, Annika threw a plastic sprite bottle at Angie's face and her mouth started bleeding. Thankfully, though, Angie was the group favorite, so everyone was super worried. There was also someone who got hit with a Frisbee in the balls. There was also an incident where Annika, Laura, Anushka, and Angie gave a spider a lightsaber leg by painting it with hot pink nail polish and ended up accidentally killing it.

Ever since TiP ended, the members of the Breakfast Chaches have actually had several TiPunions and will continue to try to find ways to meet once again!


  • Rachel met up with Pablo when she drove by his city
  • Angie and Mel went on several dates
  • Laura met up with Tony when he came down for Thanksgiving
  • Annika, Mel, Jackson, and Sarah went to Universal and spent a few days together with some of Mel's friends from home


  • Mel, Angie, and Laura met up, again (they meet up quite often since they live close to each other)
  • Pablo, Jack, Anushka, Ashley, Mel, and Rachel went to UGA t2
  • Laura drove up and met up with Jackson and Annika at Taco Lu


  • Laura went to Georgia a day early so she would be able to meet with Anushka since she wasn't able to attending tip
  • Mel, Ashley, Rachel, Pablo, Laura, Jack, and Annika went to UGA t2

It Ends Now

The Breakfast Chaches keep in touch by texting each other, using Google Hangouts, and the occasional TiPunions. We all have so much love for one another that it would be an honest shame to see us give up on each other so easily. We will be doing everything we can to continue our friendship; may we all meet again someday. We are, and we say this in the most humble way possible, an amazing group and will be friends until the end of time. We'll end this with an emotional poem written by the legendary Jack for Anushka.

Roses are red, Yoda is green; My lightsaber takes two hands if you know what I mean.
