College student or not, most of us adore our caffeinated beverages. You know, those liquids that keep our eyes peeled like potatoes at night reminding us that we "have to stay awake whether we like it or not" because we chose to drink a ton of caffeine. Every day is the constant debate on if we should drink another cup of that caffeinated drink or not. Tea or coffee though, right? There are characteristics that distinguish a tea drinker from a coffee drinker. It isn't only the places they go to drink the caffeinated beverages like a local coffee shop like Peets (because you can essentially get a variety of coffee and tea products), but it also stems down to the personality characters of that person. In that case, if you are curious if you are a coffee drinker or a tea drinker, or if you are on the borderline of loving both coffee and tea, here is how you can find out which one suits you best.

You are a coffee drinker if...

a. You become caffeine deficient without it.

You crave your next taste of its richness.

b. You get headaches without it.

You have an addiction. I empathize with you.

b. You drink your drink solely for the caffeine.

There are many people who drink coffee aware that they intentionally want some caffeine in their system. Tea drinkers on the other hand, may drink tea knowing they just want a tasty beverage without caffeine.

c. You are considered the on-the-go type of person.


I always think of the classical New Yorker when I think coffee. There are many people who go into a coffee shop or to a coffee stand on the go needing their morning fix to keep their day functional.

d. You drink your coffee with creamer.

You enjoy your coffee for the aesthetic purposes and you can't really take the full force of a dark coffee yet.

e. Or you prefer enjoy your coffee without creamer.

Then you go hard core.

f. You think out loud!

You have so much caffeine in your body you just have to blurt out your every thought.

g. You know the names of fancy coffee machines.

h. You know the difference between a dark and light roast.

i. You smell like coffee.



You are a tea drinker if...

a. You like your high tea time.

British style.

b. You just don't like coffee.

That's okay too.

c. You had fake tea parties as a child and you can now have an excuse to have them as an adult.

d. You like Verba Mates too much to not have them.

e. You don't like caffeine, but you still want a hot beverage to suffice you on a chilly day.

f. You enjoy sipping your warm beverage and listening to someone talk.


You don't have as much caffeine in your system so you have more patience to listen.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

My Strange Obsession: Bibibop Addition

I am obsessed with Bibibop.

I am obsessed with Bibibop.

Sounds strange, right? But it's true.

For those of you who have never had the opportunity to experience Bibibop, Bibibop is an Asian Grill set up similar to Chipotle. You're able to go down the line of food, choosing a base (always go with the purple rice), hot toppings (they all slap), protein (the tofu is to die for), some cold toppings (a great way to try kale for the first time), and a sauce (if you don't get the Yum Yum sauce, you're weird.)

And, let me tell you, the final product is always delicious.

I hadn't been introduced to Bibibop until this past year, but once I tried it for the first time, I never looked back. Now I am constantly craving the taste of the Yum Yum sauce. I usually hit up Bibibop once every two weeks, but if I was rich, I would probably eat it every other day.

Though, admittedly, the prices are pretty good. And they celebrate meatless Mondays with 20% off to anyone who doesn't get meat in their bowl.

Plus, it's pretty healthy. Unlike most restaurants, like Chipotle, where your somewhat healthy meal can instantly become bad for you with the addition of something on the menu, Bibibop's entire menu provides nutritional value and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Basically, Bibibop is the most underrated and most delicious restaurant in the world, which is why my obsession with it runs so deep. Although I would usually admit that obsessions are unhealthy, I think this one might be okay.
