My brothers started school, and a lot of my friends have already begun college, but I go to a school that’s on the quarter system--which means I move in until September seventeenth. Because I have nothing to do, I decided to challenge myself to write and publish a blog post every single day, as well as come out with new videos every other day. It’s an avalanche of content that is most significant, for me, in the fact that I’m just trying to do it. I don’t really expect people to read it every single day or watch all the videos (although it’d be great if they do); I just want to work hard.
I would also love to finish the first draft of my current work-in-progress, which I’ve been brainstorming/plotting/planning all summer, as well as brainstorm for my next one. That may or may not happen, but I’m trying to push myself to do more, so here goes!

This is The Countdown.

My friend Kaylee and I have almost nothing in common. She’s extroverted; I’m an introvert. She likes giant concerts; I like small, intimate ones. It’s the kind of friendship that’s based on the general assumption that we’re going to disagree on almost everything. Despite this, somehow we’ve managed to stay friends throughout high school, probably because we both enjoy the long, really loud disagreements that we have in the car. (They’re the kind of arguments that leave both parties simultaneously content with having argued and dissatisfied with the outcome of the argument, which is to say, neither of us changes her opinion--mostly due to pride.)

A certain, very specific point of contest for us is over an extremely important matter: pizza. The fact that pizza is one of the most glorious things to exist on this planet is an uncontested--but still controversial--truth. The question isn’t if you like pizza or not; it’s which pizza you prefer. Some people like Domino’s or Costco. Some people like Pizza Hut or Papa Johns. We live near two DIY pizza places. She thinks Pizza Press is better than Pieology. I beg to differ.

So, one hot afternoon, we decided to settle the score.

We went to Pieology and ordered a pizza, then went to Pizza Press and ordered the same exact one. Then we had a blind taste test.

I’ll let you watch the video to see whose opinion reigned supreme.
