It's normal to feel lazy sometimes, especially when you're all curled up and cozy in bed, but university and college students tend to lake laziness to the next level.
University students these days will actually phone you from across the lecture hall just to ask if you can lower the room temperature. Microwaves in some campus pantry rooms are set to 99:99 so all students have to do is hit the "start" button when they want to heat something. Others have ordered pizza to eat while studying... even though the pizza place is down their building.
If you or a student you know want to go through a relaxed, minimal-effort college experience, here are some useful, and some downright quirky items that any lazy college student in Dubai would love to have.

When the bed is just too comfortable and you can't be bothered to spend time in the kitchen whipping up breakfast, this instant breakfast sandwich maker is perfect for those lazy mornings. Throw in an egg, cheese, sausage, or bread and you can make 5-minute bagels, English muffins, and more.
