I'll Always Choose Starbucks For Coffee Over The Other Coffee Shops

Just call me a basic white girl.


As a college student, I've reached the point in my life where everyone around me is drinking coffee. My classmates, my friends, my professors and even some of my family members.

I've never really been one to drink coffee. I never understood everyone's love for coffee, but I did always have a love for the sugary, chocolatey frapps at Starbucks.

So when I got my first job, at a restaurant right next door to a Starbucks, someone was constantly going on Starbucks runs for the employees. And that's where my love of Starbucks really began.

I began getting Starbucks gift cards for Christmas and birthdays. At first, I still didn't really go a lot. I'd just ask my mom to stop if we went by there or I'd go when I was with my friends that were avid coffee drinkers.

And then, in my senior year of college, I started trying other drinks from Starbucks and I. Was. Hooked.

Now, every time I'm close to a Starbucks, I have to stop. I have the Starbucks app, and every Monday, I get an email about the new deal for the week to earn bonus stars.

One of my old bosses once told me that Starbucks national sales were slowly dropping due to the amount of sugar in their drinks. Yeah all that sugar is bad, but is that going to stop me. Nope.

I'm from a small town that has several little "mom and pop" coffee shops. They're good and I'd order from them, but I just can't seem to stray away from Starbucks.

I also know people who prefer Dunkin Donuts for coffee. I never understood the love for Dunkin. I don't even really like their food...because I mean Krispy Kreme has WAY better donuts, but that's beside the point.

As basic as it makes me, I'll always choose Starbucks when it comes to coffee.

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.
