Learning names can be SO HARD when you're meeting a million people. Luckily, you're never too old to play games. Even as a junior in college, two of my teachers have already had us play games to learn everyone's name in the classes.
Game number one: Each student has to think of an adjective that describes them and starts with the first letter of their first name. Then everyone says their name and adjective out loud (Kind Katie) and the names and adjectives of all of the people who went before them. Pretty effective.
Game number two: Everyone gets a miniature dry erase board and marker. They have to write their name at the top and then below draw something that everyone can remember them by. Then everyone holds up their board to the class and describes what they drew. My drawing sucked but I tried to draw my blog. Also effective.
My first week of classes has been consumed by learning names and way too many syllabus' (syllabi?). I haven't been able to sleep very well so if anyone has any tips on sleeping they'd be greatly appreciated!!
I also had my first baking experience at school! I prepared everything in the room (everything but the actual baking part). My roomies weren't really phased by that because they already know about my blog, but when I went down to the commons area to put the cookies in the oven, it got a lil' awkward. The kitchen was packed with people hanging out so they were all grilling me about what I was doing. But I kept on bakin' on and made these yummmyy cookie sandwiches with packaged frosting and a box mix. (My roommate brought them for me because she knew I had a blog :))
What do you guys think about box mixes and packaged frosting?
I hate them both. Buuuttt... they're cheap and easy. And I'm a college student now, ya know. Let's be cliche here and go with it.
These were so good. They reminded me of oatmeal cream pies. The texture was exactly the same... that soft and chewy cookie with the whipped, creamy filling, but the flavor was even better than oatmeal cream pies! They're really decadent, but so worth it and so cheap. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I highly recommend these, processed chemicals and all.

Do you use boxed mixes?
