Favorite Things About Starbucks

A Love Letter To Starbucks

That mermaid is such a third wheel.


My Dearest Starbucks,

You and I have been lovers for a good while now. You've been loyal from semester to semester, and I've stuck around through seasons of red cups and PSLs, too.

I'm smitten with the drinks you make me. It's almost as if I'm addicted to them... as if my day doesn't truly start until you give me one. You know when I'm in a hurry and hook me up with the quick dark roast, but you're also all too good at sensing when I've had a rough day and come rolling out with the venti vanilla latte. Every now and then, you get flirty and send an iced coffee my way, too.

I love the way you smell. I mean, you're so rich and earthy, some might even say dark and brooding. I breathe you in and I can't get enough of your recognizable scent.

You have a good taste in music. The songs you play me are just what I need. You know exactly what to play for the mood that I'm in. You know when I need to be calmed, when I need to be focused, when I need to be rejuvenated. I've found some of my favorite artists and songs because of you.

You've got the looks. You're aesthetic is on point. Everything from that perfect shade of green you always wear to your sleek walls, chocolatey floors, and gorgeous bar. You're cute and comfortable.

I love the way you make me feel. Whether catching up with friends or by myself, I always feel so at home with you. I am relaxed and at peace, alone and with others all at once.

You're really good at motivating me. When I need to do work, I can convince myself that with that drink you brought me, I now have the incentive to read that drab textbook. With your singing, I can make it through another problem set. With your support, I can do whatever the heck I need to. You help me succeed.

You've got some really funny stories. When work gets to be too much, sometimes I sit back and let your stories unfold. Some are about things similar to that blonde girl to my right who has a really pathetic boyfriend that she's contemplating dumping (and yes, Anna, if Kyle did forget your one-year-anniversary date night, then you should probably reevaluate your relationship). Some stories of the stories about bad decisions, more bad decisions, and a few more yet. Really, if I sit back long enough, I'm always amazed at what you come up with.

You really care about me. You make sure I'm energized and happy. If I'm ever feeling off, I come to you because I know that I can count on you.

The joy I get from being around you is so easy and free, and I truly can't imagine my life without you (although that mermaid is such a third wheel).


Your girl <3

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
