11 Things Non-Coffee Addicts Agree Will Wake You Up As Well As A Cup Of Coffee
Stephanie Keck

If there’s one thing I knew before coming into college, it was that I needed to be prepared for late nights in the library and thus, find the nearest coffee shop that would be open as long as possible.

I’m from Seattle and MAN, I love Starbucks. I have an order for every season, some with espresso and some without. That being said, I’m not a coffee addict. I tried to be because TBH, I thought it was cool. I tried different varieties of coffee. It didn’t really do anything for me — it was just a few extra calories each day.

I’m not really sure why I’m not a coffee addict considering the amount of campus Dining Dollars I really do spend at Starbucks. I just don’t wake up needing it every day. I don’t ever feel like it wakes me up enough that it’s worth me waking up early to make a cup.

Don’t get me wrong — I’m not hating on the coffee addicts. Everyone needs a little something every day. I guess I really just don’t understand. Coffee is so tasty, but when you crash, it's not that worthwhile is it? When it moves everything straight through your system, is that worth waking up?

Most of the time, I’m not even awake when it’s still early in the day. For the most part, by the time I wake up, it’s time for lunch. I don’t have time to have coffee — I’ve got to get going!

Here are 11 things that wake you up in the morning just as well as a cup of joe:

1. A cold shower

2. Washing your face

3. A nice workout

4. A dank brunch

5. The sun

6. Your fave hype music playlist

7. The smell of bacon and/or pancakes

8. A cup of tea

9. Watching a funny video

10. Your friends

11. Opening your eyes

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.

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.

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.
