6 Reasons Why Coffee Is The Best Beverage

As college students, many of us rely on coffee on a daily basis. We enjoy coffee for different reasons but there are definitely a few common ones that are shared.

1. It Wakes You Up

This one is a given. Most people drink coffee right away in the morning because of the high caffeine levels. It's a great way to wake yourself up in the morning and it accompanies any breakfast food wonderfully.

2. It Tastes Awesome

Coffee is the best way to get me up in the morning, no doubt. However, I love the taste of the stuff too. I like regular coffee with a little cream and sugar or, when I want to treat myself, a vanilla latte from Starbucks.

3. It's Versatile

Coffee comes in so many different shapes, sizes, and flavors, it's almost impossible to keep track of all the different beverage options unless you work at a coffee shop. Not only are there like, a million types of brewed coffee, but there's a whole list of espresso, iced and blended drinks to remember.

4. It's Cheap

While there are cheaper options out there (yes, a can of soda may only be a dollar but it has way more sugar than coffee), coffee is definitely an affordable beverage for you daily pick-me-up.

5. It's Better for You Than Other Caffeinated Beverages

It's no secret that plain old coffee has way less sugar in it than regular soda (approximately 25g less than a can of Coca Cola) but did you know it also has way more caffeine? While a regular 12 oz. brewed coffee can have anywhere between 95-200mg of caffeine in it, a can of Coca Cola only has between 25-35mg (via Mayo Clinic).

6. It Comes Hot or Cold

I personally like my coffee hot most of the time but having the option on a scorching summer day to enjoy a cup of your favorite beverage in cold form sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

So however you may enjoy your coffee, keep it up. You deserve a cup of this caffeinated wonderful cup of joy.

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.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
