13 Signs You're Totally Addicted To Coffee

At one point or another, each person will come across the magical gift of coffee. Some love it, some hate it, and some become completely and utterly obsessed with it. If you're like me, you probably fall into the last category. Whether you're a Starbucks fanatic, a Dunkin' Donuts regular, or a good ol' home brewer, coffee has become a daytime staple and a loyal companion. Here are some signs that your coffee craze has transformed into full-blown addiction. After all, there are far worse things to be addicted to, right?

1. You can drink it at any time of day and feel totally fine.

A morning cup of joe is practically a requirement. But, drinking cups of coffee throughout the day is completely normal and also expected of you. Drink it before bed while studying or unwinding? No biggie. You'll be able to sleep in no time, anyway.

2. Because it's not about energy, it's more about functioning.

What better way to transform into a pleasant person who can tolerate all of the annoying people around you? Exactly. There isn't one.

3. Bulk K-Cups are the best kind of K-Cups.

They're not only cheaper in the long run, but you'll probably go through all 120 of those in about a month tops. Sorry not sorry.

4. The words "turbo shot" give you butterflies.

Sometimes (a.k.a. most times) a regular amount of caffeine just isn't enough. Turbo shots give you that extra zing: they're like your little cheerleader who gets you through the toughest all-nighters, work days, and basic human functions.

5. You have your order down to a literal science.

You know how you like your coffee, so why not be a little demanding? Your super specific medium iced coffee with however many pumps of creamer, liquid sugar, and flavor combos may sound shocking to your friends, but your barista totally gets it. Unless you like black coffee...more power to you, brave one.

6. You could brew a cup/pot of coffee with your eyes closed (and you usually do).

You've pretty much mastered the art of stumbling into your kitchen, pressing the correct amount of buttons, and letting the coffee pot or Keurig brewer do its thing. If you're a particularly wise wizard, you even set up your pot for brewing the night before. Bless your soul.

7. All of the closest Dunkin'/Starbucks locations are committed to memory (and autopilot).

You may even find yourself mindlessly driving to these places when you don't intend to. Don't kid yourself, you totally intended to.

8. Your friends and family know that mugs are a go-to gift.

Your kitchen cabinets are filled with so many assorted mugs that you might as well start a full-blown collection...or maybe you should call the Guinness Book of World Records.

9. After a long day, coffee is your favorite way to "treat yo self."

Because coffee isn't only great with breakfast (and lunch...and dinner), it also makes an AWESOME dessert! Plus, adulting is hard, so you deserve it.

10. Your friends are disgusted with how much coffee you can actually consume.

They ask you how you fall asleep at night, if you get super jittery, and criticize your addiction. Or, if they're good friends, they're just as addicted as you are and are your willing coffee date companions. Those ones are the keepers.

11. Finding a cool new coffee shop is like hitting the Powerball jackpot.

Sure Starbucks, Dunkin, and your other favorite chains are cool, but let's not forget to mention those hidden gems: the small, hipster, local coffee shops that smell kind of funny but have the best coffee EVER. Hometown pride at its finest.

12. Your bank statement is littered with tons of little $2 to $5 charges.

And when I say tons, I literally mean tons. You're a valuable coffee shop customer (and probably a rewards member.

13. No coffee? Bring on the headaches.

Last, and most definitely worst, are the withdrawal headaches. If you can't grab a cup of coffee at some point throughout the day, you'll definitely be reaching for the Tylenol...or you'll be super grumpy, so watch out, world.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
