7 Reasons You Started Binge-Eating Cookie Dough In College, #NoRegrets

Once we're out of the house, the rules don't apply.

Cookie dough; the college student's binge-eat when you don't really care about your health. We can all agree that our parents told us not to eat cookie dough, but once we're out of the house, that rule doesn't apply.

Here are 7 reason why cookie dough is the ultimate choice.

1. No baking needed. Just buy, open, and go

When baking cookies, you have to preheat the oven, shape the cookie dough, and wait for them to bake. For cookie dough, you only have to open the package and grab a spoon.

2. The gritty texture everyone has a love-hate relationship with

Some of us hate foods with weird textures, and some of us love it. Either way, we all can't get enough of the gritty, gooeyness that is cookie dough.

3. It tastes better

Let's be honest, it definitely tastes better.

4. There's recipes for eggless cookie dough

No possibility of salmonella and you actually have to follow a recipe, but eggless cookie dough can still be a sweet alternative to the real stuff.

5. Cookies tend to get stale fast. Refrigerated dough? Nope

Cookies get dry and hard after a few days. Cookie dough can be opened in the refrigerator and still be good for quite some time.

6. You can shape it and warm it up in your hands, then lick away all the mess

Cookie dough is basically edible play dough that (obviously) tastes a lot better.

7. We all like living our lives on the edge

Eating cookie dough can be a risk because of the egg, but that doesn't stop anybody. Neither does our parents tell us not to eat cookie dough as a child.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
