For everyone who is slightly obsessed with pizza rolls, like me, this fun narrative article is for you.

Pizza Rolls Are Just Like Christmas... But in Your Mouth
New York Magazine

This is always my favorite time of the week: grocery shopping. Raeanne and I only ever tag along with mom and dad to make sure they’re getting the correct food. The drive is always the worst part though. Mom and dad are always slow at getting ready to go, and my hangry senses start to take over. As mom adds another item to the cart, my stomach starts to growl even louder, and every time we pass the frozen foods, I hesitate to ask… I know mom knows what I want. I know she has checked that grocery list twice.

I follow behind mom and watch as every muscle in her body moves. Hanger slowly rising back up as my stomach yells for me to feed it. Just as words are about to shoot out of my mouth, mom beats me to the punch. She’s opens the door, reaches for the bag, and tosses it into the cart. I stare at such beauty: pepperoni pizza rolls. My stomach started to rumble again. It was time to get home. The drive home feels like we’re headed towards grandma’s house for Christmas Eve, and I couldn’t be even more anxious. The feeling of being wrapped in a blanket while playing video games, with a plate full of pizza rolls within arm’s length, sounded like the perfect way to spend the rest of my day. Mom asks us to help unload before Raeanne and I got the chance to unbuckle our seatbelts. Once everything is inside and unloaded, I start asking mom for lunch, but she just responds that I am old enough to do it myself.

I pull the bag out of the freezer and place it on the counter. I set the oven to the directed heat for the pizza rolls, and the anticipation begins. The bag setting on the counter reminds me of a perfectly wrapped Christmas present that waits for the moment that a parent gives their child permission to open it. The smell of the heating oven reminds me of the honey-cooked ham that was roasting for dinner at Grandma’s house later that Christmas evening. The oven is preheated, and now I can place each pizza roll on the cookie sheet with love and care. As they cool down, I can feel the hanger starting to settle. It was almost time to eat these wonderful packages of cheesy, pepperoni goodness.

I wait all full fifteen minutes for these pizza rolls just like I wait three hundred and sixty-five days for Christmas to roll back around. Each pepperoni pizza roll brings my stomach happiness the same way opening up that one huge Christmas present does to my heart. This must be what perfection tastes like. I slow down on eating the last one because this moment needs to last; nothing could ever ruin it. The last bite is my last Christmas present – all gone, but full of love and a happy heart.

Finishing all the pizza rolls is just as sad as watching the clock turn from 11:59 P.M. to 12:00 A.M. signifying that Christmas was finally over. The happiness has come in a blink of an eye causing time, to once again, be my worst enemy. One week will go by and another trip to the grocery store will take place, only to replenish my empty heart for more pizza rolls. I will once again be as happy as a child opening up presents on Christmas morning.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
