Coffee is essentially the way of life.

4 Fabulous Coffee Hacks You Didn't Know You Needed

Coffee is a blessing in this world for me! I love the taste, smell and energy it gives. Yet, I always wonder what other things coffee can be used for. Here are four fabulous coffee hacks for the coffee lovers out there like me.

1. Create Your Own DIY Latte

Ingredients: coffee and milk


  1. Brew up your favorite coffee
  2. As the coffee is brewing, heat 1 to 1½ cups of milk in a saucepan. If you are looking for a rich, creamy latte, use 2% milk. If you’re looking for skinny coffee, give skim or 1% a try (and remember—you can always try something new like almond milk, rice milk or soy milk!).
  3. Whisk the heating milk into froth (WARNING: you will get a bit of an arm workout!).
  4. Pour the coffee into your favorite mug, leaving a bit of room at the top for some milk.
  5. Drizzle the milk over the coffee, holding some froth back with a spoon.
  6. Finish up the pour by layering froth on the tippy top of the beverage.
  7. If you like it sweet, add some sugar, vanilla extract, a dusting of cinnamon or honey.

3. Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks

This one is a personal favorite for myself. Starbucks has this entire menu of secret drinks that you can order. They are not found on the regular menu you see. Instead, they can be found online with special names. Carina Hsieh and Danielle Tullo published a listicle on Cosmopolitan.com with just a few of these secret treats.

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.
