I didn't choose this life it chose me.

10 Things Only Coffee Addicts Will Understand
Anna Talcott

Coffee isn't just a drink, it is a lifestyle. Once you are in, there is no way out. There are some people who "like" coffee, some who "love" it, and then you have those who literally can not function without it (me). At some point you have probably considered joining a form of AA which would probably be called something like, "Coffee Addiction Anonymous (CAA)" for your addiction. Then you most likely laughed out loud at that idea because there is no possible way you could eliminate coffee from your daily routine (Not from personal experience at all). Below are some factors explaining why a life without coffee has become unimaginable, unfathomable, and completely IMPOSSIBLE for you and I.

1. It is the best part of waking up A.K.A the only reason you wake up.

2. You do not consider Decaf to be coffee.

That’s like saying, “Can I have orange free orange juice?” Like, NO.

3. There is no such thing as too much coffee.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F18%2F636044760706966279-2025280719_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=861&h=c54ad2eb2d3972a549a17ef1abb4f95a5ec49601d60de2ce425517343afe697b&size=980x&c=108888201 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F18%252F636044760706966279-2025280719_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D861%26h%3Dc54ad2eb2d3972a549a17ef1abb4f95a5ec49601d60de2ce425517343afe697b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D108888201%22%7D" expand=1]

Espresso limits are more like suggestions.

4. You NEVER say no to coffee no matter the time of day.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F18%2F6360447743266317692095576656_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=441&h=c755cffe58752a4c6450c653402468bdfb33950ae323fd6556635aea0c38ff3d&size=980x&c=2859209909 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F18%252F6360447743266317692095576656_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D441%26h%3Dc755cffe58752a4c6450c653402468bdfb33950ae323fd6556635aea0c38ff3d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2859209909%22%7D" expand=1]

5. Bad coffee puts you in a bad mood, plain and simple.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F18%2F6360447627200950831998663485_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=483&h=a70902f8013ee8d23a8652c66cccb7d6fb08f433b558bb2ce2b3d41ccf8105fe&size=980x&c=2071099675 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F18%252F6360447627200950831998663485_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D483%26h%3Da70902f8013ee8d23a8652c66cccb7d6fb08f433b558bb2ce2b3d41ccf8105fe%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2071099675%22%7D" expand=1]

6. You laugh at the idea of quitting coffee.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F18%2F636044771078808481-1475906794_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=646&h=de2013740504363f9bda7e80ebd647fc8116f51445d25555a718fc0b7ef784de&size=980x&c=4184493156 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F18%252F636044771078808481-1475906794_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D646%26h%3Dde2013740504363f9bda7e80ebd647fc8116f51445d25555a718fc0b7ef784de%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4184493156%22%7D" expand=1]

In fact, you have decided if it became a life or death situation you might even hesitate. (If this applies to you, then you should probably consider getting help. I have already contacted my sponsor.)

7. You’ve been late to work because you HAD to have your coffee.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F18%2F6360447595570716661054283419_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1001&h=97b37731585b681883fcda10ab45f84799bb6a6b06979029344c19a945ccffb4&size=980x&c=2612869987 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F18%252F6360447595570716661054283419_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1001%26h%3D97b37731585b681883fcda10ab45f84799bb6a6b06979029344c19a945ccffb4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2612869987%22%7D" expand=1]

I mean, to be completely honest, you are being considerate of everyone else's feelings. Because talking to you before coffee is a no go! Someone might even loose a limb.

8. Having to go to the restroom every 20 minutes is completely normal for you.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F18%2F6360447590208932421356065583_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=825&h=8aa21e7ecc8e3ec8505e9da4631b6765d64b076502ec7428c09f3e7900259d68&size=980x&c=493684847 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F18%252F6360447590208932421356065583_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D825%26h%3D8aa21e7ecc8e3ec8505e9da4631b6765d64b076502ec7428c09f3e7900259d68%26size%3D980x%26c%3D493684847%22%7D" expand=1]

9. Ordering a small coffee does not seem realistic for you.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F18%2F6360447568026551781040027409_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=424&h=41ac9ea082766fc7abb85abc569f0d0508b4388b9eec3e1350deadcde8f062b8&size=980x&c=2107430068 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F18%252F6360447568026551781040027409_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D424%26h%3D41ac9ea082766fc7abb85abc569f0d0508b4388b9eec3e1350deadcde8f062b8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2107430068%22%7D" expand=1]

Go big or go home. (No seriously, just go home. Don't doing anything rash and call your sponsor.)

10. That moment you meet someone as equally obsessed as you are about coffee.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F18%2F636044765235290272998148404_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=370&h=facfb0ce29b07059deea6087a305f023c4a1f6167ef0e41c865e7cf2d0886d7d&size=980x&c=3407361156 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F18%252F636044765235290272998148404_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D370%26h%3Dfacfb0ce29b07059deea6087a305f023c4a1f6167ef0e41c865e7cf2d0886d7d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3407361156%22%7D" expand=1]

It makes life so much easier because they understand and support everything about this lifestyle.

These are 10 things that I have learned throughout all my years of addiction to coffee (eight years strong). With these simple things you are able to diagnosis yourself and others without a trip to the doctors or therapist (You're welcome). Now, for those anti-coffee (tea) drinkers, if you find yourself in a situation with a coffee addict running on "E" for that day; run away and do it fast! (whispers quietly) I'll pray for you.

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.


By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?

    The Basics Of The United Nations

    As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101


    For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.
