Anyways, we would have to participate in these study sessions - my classmates and I, sometimes all night long, and so I baked, so no one would go hungry while we worked. Sometimes I would bake all afternoon in the kitchen in the dorm, and then I’d bring my little treats to the study groups and people loved them. I made Oatmeal Cookies, Peanut Butter Bars, Dark Chocolate Macadamia Nut Wedges, and everyone would eat and stay happy and study harder and do better in the tests - and then more and more people started coming to the study groups and I’d bring more of snacks and I was always looking for better and better recipes until soon it was Ricotta Cheese and Apricot Croissants, and Mocha Bars with an Almond Glaze, and Lemon Chiffon Cake with Zesty Peach Icing. At the end of the semester, I had 27 study partners, 8 Mead journals filled with recipes, and a D average. So I dropped out. I just figured if I was going to make the world a better place, I would do it with cookies.
