Pie Isn't Even That Great

We need to stop lying to ourselves-pie isn't the best dessert.

Pie Isn't Even That Great

It is the holidays. Thanksgiving just passed, and Christmas is quickly on its way. After stuffing our faces with as much turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, carrots, and so on, that we can, the table is cleared and out comes the dessert.

Most likely, there is a pie. Or two. Or more.

Someone slices you a piece. It is apple pie. America's favorite! But, 'slice' is a generous word, isn't it? More like, someone cuts you a piece and it just kinda oozes.

You pick at a lumpy, gloppy piece of apple. The dough is squishy and you wonder if it is even fully cooked. There are a million flaky crust pieces just strewn about your plate. Yummmmmm.

Someone grabs your plate, insisting that you eat your pie a-la-mode. They add a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Because what you needed more of was a quickly-melting liquid to add to your mushy dessert.

Why do we still pretend that pie is a good dessert? It is definitely not the best of all the choices we have out there. Have you heard of cake? Cookies? Heck, even Jello?

We have some sort of obsession with pie. It is considered "All-American." We hold pie near and dear to us. We call the ones we love "Sweetie-pie" or "cutie-pie." But we need to stop lying to ourselves-pie is not even that great.

I should not have to prove my dedication to America by forcing myself to eat a slice of pie on every holiday. So, can someone please pass the cookies?

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
