Switching From Coffee To Lattes - Worth It?

My unexpected realization.

Brent Gorwin

Before entering my regular Saturday morning homework abyss at the nearby coffee shop I always find myself at, I stood up after placing my items down at my favorite spot. Upon standing and walking toward the counter to grab my per-usual caffeine fix, I looked up towards the menu and somehow the words "mocha latte" came from my mouth while ordering.

After hearing myself ask for a latte rather than my nearly-daily iced coffee, I was quick to almost take back what I had said and ask for something else, but I bit my tongue and let it slide this one time. Although, little did I know the order of a mocha latte would become a staple of mine.

As I sat back down at my table with my extremely unexpected order in my hand, I quickly had to taste-test. Especially since I have never really been a latte person at all, I expected my first sip to make me miss my per-usual iced caramel coffee, and wish more than anything I had just ordered my usual.

As I tasted the mixture of mocha, milk, and espresso, I knew that my order at this coffee shop would never ever change, and the mocha latte would forever be on the tip of my tongue as I walk into those doors. I have had an iced latte before, but it has been awhile, and my iced-coffee habits had definitely increased to the point where I hadn't even considered ordering anything different until this day.

As I finished my homework and exited this coffee shop, I knew for a fact my life was changed. When I say my life revolves around my morning coffee to pair with my study habits, I mean it. With this new integration of iced lattes that I never thought would ever happen, I was shocked but happily shocked—I must say. They're just so good!

So, moral of this lovely story is: try switching it up! I know many people who only stick to their exact coffee every single day, like myself prior to this, and I have found myself being completely shocked with my new-found love for iced lattes. And, as an avid coffee connoisseur, it's definitely nice to now have something to switch up the routine every once in a while!

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.
