10 Reasons To Enjoy Writing In A Coffee Shop

10 Reasons To Enjoy Writing In A Coffee Shop

Who doesn't like a nice cup of Joe?

I've been visiting a lot of coffee shops this year and have discovered things that I like and dislike about each. I've also come to realize that being in one of these familiar/unfamiliar places allows me to finish what I want to do all while drinking a coffee. Here are some reasons to look into finding the local shop that`s right for you.

1. Coffee

Maybe one of the most important parts of the trip in the first place.

2. Atmosphere

The soft music and white noise of the espresso machines keeps you distracted enough to stay focused and interested in the task at hand.

3. Friends

Going with a pal or two when you both want somewhere to go and need something to motivate you allows you to socialize and accomplish something all at once.

4. Location

The kind of shop you go to makes a difference. Choosing one that feels comfortable but not too comfortable is key (as you still want to get a latte done).

5. Relaxing

Find a shop that allows you to sit and sip for a moment, where you don't feel rushed to pack up and leave.

6. Cute tables/chairs

Looks make a difference in this case and if the chair isn't comfy enough to sit in you're not going to be comfortable enough to focus on what you`re there to do.

7. Baristas

Make friends with your barista! They`ll know the best drinks and maybe even see if you'd like to try something off the secret menu.

8. People

Taking a break to people watch lets you take in the culture around you and gives more insight on others.

9. 'Get It Done' mood

Coffee shops close and much like a deadline motivates some, the threat of the doors closing in 30 minutes can up the interest in finishing the task at hand.

10. More coffee

Because sometimes one cup is just not enough.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts?
