Pizookie: What It Is, Why You Should Eat It, And The Adventure That Started It All

Piz-oo-kie: A Latin term to describe a cookie dessert baked to resemble a pizza. Pure genius.

I knew two things on Tuesday night:

1. BJ's was having a special on pizookies for only $3.

2. I needed to try this famous dessert.

My close friends and I sent out a mass text announcing we were taking a study break to try BJ's monstrous pizookies.

A few hours later, we sat in BJ's lobby and debated waiting fifteen minutes and splitting our party of ten in half, or waiting thirty minutes to be seated together. Our appetite was too strong to wait, so we were quickly seated at two separate booths.

I have to admit if given the choice between chocolate and vanilla, I will always choose vanilla. It seemed as though ALL of the pizookie flavors were for chocolate lovers, so I ordered the monkey bread pizookie.

IT WAS SO DELICIOUS! My pizookie tasted like a combination of a cinnamon roll and a glazed doughnut. Plus, it was even topped with two giant scoops of french vanilla ice cream!

After making my friends try the best pizookie ever invented, they agreed it tasted heavenly, too. My friend Jordan, however, disagreed. "The ice cream makes the bread wet and gross. A pizookie is supposed to be melty and warm," she insisted.

I assure you, she did not know what she was talking about. ;)

I should also mention a few of the mini fiascos that occurred during our pizookie study break.

First, BJ's ran out of Peanut Butter S'mores pizookies and Coleman threw a fit. (Was he seeking a free pizookie? Absolutely.) Please notice in every single picture taken that night, Coleman is frowning. He sighed when the waiter told him he had to choose a different flavor. He replied, "I guess I'll have to order a triple chocolate" in a pouty tone. He made it especially obvious he was bummed when our waitress kindly took a picture of us because he refused to smile! I think the funniest of all was when Coleman apathetically replied "Eh," when our waitress asked our table if we'd enjoyed our dessert. Coleman never fails to keep things lively!

The disaster/fun of the night didn't stop there.

Trey's spoon broke while eating his pizookie because he was "too swoll" (in his own words).

Kylee finally admitted she would've shared my pizookie with me if she had known that monkey bread wasn't banana flavored.

Chris glanced down during the middle of one of our conversations and yelled, "OMG where did it all go?!"

Aaron wore his Santa help and photobombed each picture.

At one time during the night, I was laughing so hard that my head slammed back into the counter behind me!

Who knew pizookies could have such an effect on all of us? We were sugared up the rest of the night and that is a story only my Snapchat can tell, but BJ's is definitely the move for anyone looking for adventure on a random Tuesday night!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
