The Comment Awards Will Eat You Up

What’s up, coconuts? Did your Girl Scout cookies come yet? My personal record is eating a sleeve of peanut butter sandwiches and half a box of samoas in one sitting. It’s called goals, people.

Speaking of delicious things, our resident foodies cooked up some decadent dishes like lobster and scallopsgrilled cheese and cookie butter bars this week. Kate ate a heart shaped pizza and talked about her V-day feelings and Vanessa introduced us to Straddler on the Street, Sam. (She’s been to both A-Camps and has some really great tattoos!) Hansen showed us how to make simple and beautiful watercolor art and Gabrielle thinks you can rock a wooden bow tie. Meanwhile,  Illinois is getting really close to legalizing gay marriage and the College Lesbianage Class of 2016 is growing up fast. Oh, and did you hear about about Quintana? It sort of made my brain explode. Kinda like these Ted talks, but in a different way. Now for some head-exploding comments from you…
