20 Best Desserts For Every Sweet Tooth To Sample In NYC

New York, new Sarah.

. . .Or something ridiculously cheesy like that.

It’s official: next fall, I will be living in Jersey City, New Jersey, which is a mere subway ride under the Hudson River to New York City (yes, I said UNDER). As soon as I received the news, I started making mental bucket lists of all that I want to do, sites I want to see, and—hardest thing of all—places I want to eat.

You hear of all the stereotypical NYC desserts that everyone needs to try when they visit, and for most people, eating those foods is a fun experience in and of itself. For me, though, it’s not quite so simple.

For me, it will be simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying because I will be fulfilling a dream while also trying to conquer my ultimate demon. Each bite, each new taste of “unsafe” foods, will be a stroke on the canvas, a newly added color swirling with fear and triumph, with tormented thoughts and trembling perseverance.

Each time I choose to say yes, to experience the sweet treats instead of hiding away in my comfort zone, I see new colors emerge, new textures appear as I both create and uncover who I am and who I want to be.

Each little bite is a step towards becoming fully Sarah, not the shell of Sarah taken over by her eating disorder.

So for me, this list is the most important of all: my bucket list of F-you’s to ED:

1. Eileen's Cheesecake

2. Stax Ice Cream Cremella

3. Berlina at Dulcinea

4. Chip NYC Cookie

5. Ferrara Bakery Cannoli

6. Gossip Coffee Donutccino

7. Union Fare Bakery Croissant

8. Ring Ding Bar

9. DŌ Cookie Dough

10. Magnolia Bakery Ice Cream Whoopie

11. Levain Bakery Cookie

12. Dominique Ansel Bakery Cookie Shot

16. Sweet Churros

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
