The most effective form of stress relief? Baking!
Blogger: Ava Martinez
The heightened workload that comes with sophomore year is certainly impossible to ignore. This semester, I'm taking 18 units, 10 of which are 300-levels. Although it could be easy to become burnt out after studying for tests, writing research papers, and hundreds of pages of reading a week, my friends and I have been keeping the stress of sophomore year in check with various baking projects. The proximity of Target, Trader Joe's, and Fresh and Easy has made it that much easier to keep a constant supply of cookie dough and other mixes, and my friends and I find ourselves taking over the Norris kitchen at least once a week. Cookie cups to put ice cream in was one of the better ideas we've had.
