    I will be happy to supply your cookie fix anytime. ;)

    I probably shouldn't eat all 9 dozen cookies by myself anyways.....

    We're only 20ish pages off 2020's page count. We'll have to surpass them by the beginning of Christmas break.

    I am totally up for a cookie swap! I make cookies in waaay to large a batches due to my Grandpa's recipes being for an actual bakery. Then again, I'm sure I could find people closer to me to eat all my extra cookies... ;)

    Oh my. :laugh: I haven't seen that one, but it's been a few years since I've been further west than Manhattan on I-70.

    Whaaaat?? Someone needs to teach this Egg to bake.

    The idea of a baked goods swap was actually how the Facebook message group started, back in December... maybe it'll actually happen this semester!

    I've been doing this all summer with the recipes they have available. It all started with the technical challenge dacquoise I made for my mom for her birthday back in March. It's a ton of fun even though I manage to screw something or another up most of the time. Currently have a large version of Martha's lemon thyme drizzle cakes in the fridge!

    Have you watched any of the master class episodes? Those are useful, too.

    Also - shout out to cake box mixes. I like making cake from scratch, but box mixes can be super convenient and pretty freaking good. I just follow my father-in-law's tips: mix wet ingredients separately and get them frothy. Then sift the dry cake mix into the wet ingredients. Works like a charm. Nice and fluffy cake. :)

    Nope, I just found out about the master class, so I haven't watched it at all yet. I will though! I want to try puff pastry, but I'm sure it'll take a lot of trial and error. I tend to overbake everything.

    Those sound amazing.

    Hey @PrincessButterCup lets do some baking while you're here! I'm not sure I'll be 100% healthy by then so I might not be up to adventuring all day every day so baking would be a fun slightly less taxing adventure. :)

    Fire is just a normal part of cooking! It happens! I'm pretty sure I was drunk then too, so I'm not too surprised.

    If you're not on the executive board, they are basically 0 time commitment other than attending lunch lectures and occasional wet labs. So join as many as you're willing to pay for!

    Join ALL the clubs. Never pack lunch :p Ours were smart and accepted club dues at family day during orientation so my parents paid for several of them. I think dues ranged from $5 to $30. Only joined the few I ended up liking for 2nd year.

    I agree too. I joined like eight clubs first year. Have one or two meals/meetings from each and you've made your money back. Second year I narrowed down to things I was more interested in, and third year I was really only in a couple things.

    Edit: also woah, did I miss something? Why are you class of 2021? Were you always, or did something change? (Sorry if this is a sore subject for whatever reason; don't feel like you have to respond by any means- I've just been gone for a while so I feel like I'm out of the loop)

    Anatomy kicked my butt, so I get to try again. Lol. No longer a sore spot; accepted a while ago with some support. And no point in hiding it! Going to be pretty obvious when I'm at orientation in two weeks. Lol

    Snuggling with VMH
    I'm so frustrated guys. I can't order a parking permit online--at least not yet--because I'm apparently listed as an on call employee right now and I'm also still fighting with my doctor to get proof of my first rabies vaccine--waiting to hear back from the university physician's office to find out if the three I do have proof of might be sufficient. Blah.

    Watching facebook friends of mine start classes is weird.

    You getting the student insurance? That will cover rabies if you've got to get it done at school.

    And don't sweat too much about that vaccination stuff. I still haven't provided proof of tetanus and nothing has happened to me
