Growing up, The Grinch was one of my all-time favorite holiday movies. (Fun fact: Did you know the actress who played Cindy Loo Who is now a kick butt lead singer in a rock band? You go Taylor.) Now, I feel like I relate to the fuzzy green grump on a deeply spiritual level.

1. Looking around your classes the start of each semester


I'm surrounded by peasants.

2. Procrastinating everything ever

I'll start at five.

3. Learning there won't be a curve


Excuse me? Rude.

4. Eating when you have nothing else to do


I'm not even hungry right now but I'm still eating.

5. Still procrastinating


Just a little longer, let me check Instagram one last time.

6. Tell yourself you'll try to be fit


To work off all of that bored eating.

7. When no one will come get food with you


I'm independent, I don't need no one.

8. When you and your friend both tank that test you didn't study for


10. Laying in bed contemplating if college is even worth it


Is it too late to drop out?

11. When your friend asks you to go out but you know you probably shouldn't.

My bank account and my planner say no.

12. Trying on multiple outfits anyway


I'll just humor them it's fine.

13. Not finding an outfit you like enough


I have NO cute clothes.

14. Telling yourself you deserve a night out

It's just one night, I deserve this.

15. But then running into your ex later that night


SHOTS ON ME Y'ALL!

16. Confessing your love to all your friends the more you drink

I just love you guys so much.

17. When the shots and your feelings hit at the same time

I HATE THEM! JK I LOVE THEM, I NEED MORE BOOZE.

18. When your roommate comes in to wake you up the next morning

Go. Away.

19. Listening to your friends talk about the cringe-worthy things you did the night before

Please stop talking, I'd rather not know.

20. Coping with your hungover regret

21. Determining you're never going out ever again


At least not until next week that is.

But we still say Roll MF Tide!

We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness

What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst

media.giphy.com

It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen

media.giphy.com

Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad

media.giphy.com

Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin

media.giphy.com

Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate

media.giphy.com

Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny

media.giphy.com

More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body

media.giphy.com

Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 

media.giphy.com

Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.

I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.

One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.


In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.


Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.


After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.


Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.


Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?



The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.



The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.



Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
