5 Reasons To Love Coffee
Circle Tour Adventures

The beginning of this week brings us into the wake of International Coffee Day, which was last Thursday. While I'm not one to down talk a holiday for something so close to my heart, I also believe it should be noted that, in all honesty, every day should be "International Coffee Day". Where would we all be without that extra kick in the morning to get us out of bed? Or warm us up on a chilly fall morning?

1. It wakes you up.

One of the best reasons to love coffee is that it gets you out of bed, and that's not something your everyday brew of tea leaves can provide. There's nothing like that first sip of good, strong coffee. With good coffee, you can feel it working instantly. For my fellow students that also have a lot of early classes, I think we all owe it to coffee for not yet violating our attendance policies.

2. You can change the flavor according to the season.

Coffee shops are notorious for adding new seasonal flavors when certain times of the year come along, and like many other coffee connoisseurs, this is my favorite part to the coffee industry. Who doesn't love to have the first taste of pumpkin spice latte when the leaves start changing colors. Who doesn't want to enjoy a peppermint mocha while knocking out your Christmas shopping list?

3. Often times, the associates of coffee shops are genuinely nice.

I don't think I've ever been in a coffee shop before ten o' clock in the morning where the clerks weren't happy to serve me. I can't think of a reason why someone might embody the pep of a middle school cheerleader before seven in the morning, but somehow these people make that possible. Throughout my coffee consuming years, I don't think I've ever so much as gotten a hint of shade thrown at me for my coffee order, and that's something that makes the coffee experience that much more enjoyable. Did you really expect me to enjoy my beverage if you'd handed it to me with an obvious want to be back in your bed?

4. It gives you a chance to relax before you start your day.

Enjoy the last few minutes you have to be in your pajamas, take in that wonderful smell of bacon grease frying up on the stove, and take another second to appreciate the fact that you haven't yet had to start your day. Enjoying a cup of coffee before venturing out into whatever you have on your plate for the day is good for the soul, and hey-who are you to complain about not having to get ready for an extra few minutes?

5. Coffee helps you present yourself more positively.

What happens when you try to approach morning rush traffic on South College before your cup of coffee? People die. Okay, so they don't actually die, but let's just say the concept of road rage becomes more conceivable without that first cup of coffee. Many of us may be familiar with the tribulations Wilmington traffic brings us all, and I wouldn't wish for any soul to be on those streets if I haven't had any coffee in my system.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
