20 Signs You Love Iced Coffee More Than Your Last Relationship

20 Signs You Love Iced Coffee More Than Your Last Relationship

Just sippin' on my iced coffee and pretending everything's okay.

Iced coffee is really all I need in life. Okay, that's a lie, but if it's not on the top of your list of "one true loves," then you're definitely lying. All it takes is a medium iced caramel mocha with almond milk to get me going. Let all the coffee lovers rejoice!

1. You're willing to wake up early to see them.

It may take setting five alarms with the word, "COFFEEEEEE" in all caps and a dozen coffee emoji's, but it's worth it.

2. You know the dangers of drinking it hot, juggling it with fifty other things, and having it spill and burn a hole in your heart.

We've all been there. Let's save ourselves the trouble and not sue McDonald's or Starbucks.

3. You're probably sitting in the drive thru right now instead of by the coffeemaker in your significant other's kitchen.

I'd prefer to sit in my car. Alone. I've given the saying, "Good things come to those who wait," a whole new meaning.

4. You remember the exact dates Dunkin's happy hour starts and ends but you couldn't get your ex to remember your birthday.

So is happy hour, but I'm sure he couldn't even remember that.

5. You've posted a million iced coffee pictures on your Instagram feed to make up for the ex-boyfriend photos you deleted.

And that is how we flirt, ladies and gentlemen.

6. ...And Snapchats, too.

I mean, until your iced coffee betrays you, that is...

7. You're willing to pay $5 just so you can get your quick fix.

Too bad it takes an eternity to actually get your coffee, but I'd rather not complain.

8. You don't have to worry about where they are all the time because you can usually find them on every street corner.

No more countless texts, all you need is the notification that your mobile order is ready.

9. You've coined the term, "The colder the better," in reference to your cold heart.

More ice, please.

10. You're not afraid to try exotic things anymore, bring on the almond and coconut milk!

It was about time we ditched the same-old-same-old. Apparently, they're better for you, anyway.

11. You get even more excited about getting a free drink on your Starbucks Gold Member anniversary because at least the damn app remembered it was your freaking anniversary.

I guess you could say that coffee isn't as forgetful.

12. You drink twice as much iced coffee than you probably should to make up for all those coffee dates where they were "too busy" to meet you.

Yeah, I drink coffee like it's water, no big deal.

13. You're closer to your barista than you ever were to them.

I'm forever thankful for cute guys that work at coffee shops.

14. Your cold brew smells better than they did most of the time.

Even after you bought them that expensive cologne.

15. You dream of the day your future bf will show up to your work with your iced vanilla coffee.

<span id="selection-marker-1" class="redactor-selection-marker"> </span><span id="selection-marker-1" class="redactor-selection-marker"></span>

Please watch this. That is all.

16. You believe in taking everything in full doses (aka larger coffees), whereas your ex claimed he could only take you in small doses.

Am I talking too much? Oh sorry, it's the coffee. At least I think it is, but it probably has no effect on me anymore. I should stop talking.

17. You get more attention from your Instagram followers who ask what your iced coffee order is every time you post it on your story.

I dunno if I can remember all of that.

18. You don't settle for mediocre sugar-filled nonsense.

Black coffee ain't that bad, especially when it matches your soul.

19. You like your men like you like your coffee: smooth and strong.

Sorry, just had to include this one.

20. That's right, none of that five extra pumps of caramel bullshit that screams, "Come over tonight." Bring on the damn espresso.

If you order something with that much extra sugar, then we all know what you really want...and it ain't coffee, if you know what I mean.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Sweet Potatoes Are The Most Underrated Vegetable Of All Time

Everything you need to know about the pieces of edible gold we call "sweet potatoes" and why they will always perish over any plain old potato.


The potato. The heart of the American food industry. A versatile vegetable crop soaked in grease that brings us some of our favorite appetizers and sides. From french fries, to curly fries, to tater tots, to baked potatoes, to hash browns, this hallowed vegetable has become the Johnny Depp of the vegetable family. Now, we are all aware that the configurations of potatoes are limitless, but we commonly disregard the potato's delicious and neglected brother: the sweet potato. I, a credible food connoisseur and highly experienced eater, am here to tell you why you are missing out on a world of flavor if you choose to dismiss the beloved sweet potato and its many entities.

Let me first start this tirade by proving to you my credibility...I, too, once believed that regular french fries were better than sweet potato fries. I scoffed at the idea of choosing those ridiculous orange sticks over my tried-and-true plain boys. I could not be convinced that any sweetness should impede on my savory snacks.

These were dark times.

It was not until a mere month ago that my mind was changed forever.

It was a sunny (scary) Sunday morning, and my pounding head led me on a mission to indulge myself in the finest breakfast foods. I entered my favorite breakfast diner, Angelo's, and waited anxiously for my waiter to stroll over. She filled our water cups and asked if we wanted to start with any appetizers. Before my stingy self could even decline the offer, my best friend ordered a round of sweet potato fries for the table and the waiter scurried away. I stared blankly at her for a solid minute. I could not wrap my head around the concept of munching on sweet potato fries at 8 in the morning. She just stared back and said, "Trust me." Suddenly, a tray of blood orange sticks and a mysterious tan sauce appeared in front of my face. As much as I wanted to ponder the morality of this decision, the hunger began to take over, and I shoved one of the fries into my mouth.

In an instant, it was as if time and space had lost all meaning. When my teeth hit the fry, the perfectly crusted outer shell crunched softly making a sound much like your foot crushing a dried leaf. The now exposed inside of the fry was the perfect blend of mush and warmth that felt like your mouth was receiving a hug. The flavor...unbelievable. It didn't take me long to realize that this wasn't a fry — this was a culinary experience. This fry single-handedly blew the roof off of any predisposed ideas I had about American cuisine.

I am well aware that my fry experience cannot be simulated again by any average food-goer, but I challenge you, the reader of this article, to get out there and enjoy a sweet potato in any form. Stray from your basic fries or tater tots and dabble in a sweet treat which will undoubtedly bring you flavorful satisfaction.
