College Majors As Coffee

College Majors As Coffee

The world is your coffee bean, so why not espresso yourself?

Coffee is part of our daily grind for that extra boost we all rely on. Few say that they don’t like coffee, but the truth is, due to the variety the coffee world provides, there is a coffee for everyone. We each can either order the comforting and delicious drink straight up, or we can make it our own by adding flavors or brewing it differently. Just like our college majors. We all are here to learn and get ready for the real world, but we each get to make our experiences and learning opportunities our own, or should I say, we get to espresso ourselves. That was so easy, it was brewtiful. Okay, sorry. Here are the college majors as coffees if you need a little wake up call. Enjoy!

Agriculture - Iced Caramel Macchiato

Y’all are the ones who truly need the morning perk, but you must want it cold because you’re about to spend your day in the hot sun. This is where the “iced” part comes from. The caramel is an important added flavor as it is the cream of the crop in the coffee world. The pairing just harvests our taste buds since it is quite pleasing, and seriously the perfect way to start the day.

Athletic Training and Physical Therapy - Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans

Although these may seem to be candy, dark chocolate is good for your heart, yet the beans still give you that extra boost to get through your day. Be careful of their tastiness though! You may not want toooooo much caffeine.

Business - Freshly Brewed Black Coffee

Nothing says you are professional and mature like a good cup of plain black coffee. You don’t need or put up with any of the added flavors, yet there is little room for discussion and negotiation on which brand of coffee is the best.

Communications and Journalism - Latte

To curl up in your jammies with a cozy drink is a good way to avoid writer’s block. It puts the mind at ease, and brings out creativity. However, if you are about to give a speech, a latte also has the ability to give you that extra zing of energy.

Computer Science - Frozen Mocha

Who do we call up when we all have issues with our computers? Especially when they freeze? Because they are code blooded? That’s exactly right, a computer science major. We all need one of these in our lives, similar to the fact that a mocha can be appealing to anyone since it tastes like hot chocolate (but in this case, it’d be frozen chocolate).

Criminal Justice and Pre-Law - Caffè Americano

Just like the coffee, you’re professional, American, and you’re able to sneak in a shot undercover (espresso or hard liquor?).

Education - Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh, the famous pumpkin spice latte. We all know the start of the school year is when you need the most coffee since adjusting from the summer sleep schedule can be difficult. This popular flavor of coffee has many ways of imitating the famous title, so there is creativity needed. All that goes into the school year with lesson plans and decorating the classroom, you all are crowned for your creativity just like this drink.

Engineering and Math - Frappucino

This coffee delight is engineered by using the right formula of coffee, milk, and sugar. The proportions must be precise just like you all must do every day in your future career.

English and Literature - Flat White Coffee

The ingredients of this coffee classic are simple, and the appearance is artsy. This is the one exception to the rule “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” because it is pleasing to our eyes and our taste buds cry out for it.

Fine Arts - Black Coffee (with added ingredients)

You start with a blank canvas and create it into your very own. With black coffee, you are able to make a known drink or be innovative and use your abstract skills to put your drink in the spotlight.

Foreign Language - Cappuccino

The double shot of espresso is an important factor to understand this pairing. Just like the two shots, foreign language majors are bilingual (at least!!!). For those of you who know more than two languages, I applaud you.

History - Iced Coffee

The past can be cold and bitter just like iced coffee. Many people become very passionate about this type. The struggle with it though is if you chug it, it’s gone. And you immediately regret that it’s gone because it becomes history. It is a love-hate relationship.

Nursing - Espresso

Shots shots shots shots shots shots!!! These are the second best kind of shots there are (and they go down much smoother too)…. The ones you give to your patients are the absolute worst because you must deal with their fear and tears, so you need your own shot to get you through your day.

Psychology - Decaf

All psychologists know that caffeine is the most abused and addictive drug out there. It also messes with our sleep schedule. Although you all are disapproving of the caffeine that is involved with the idea of coffee, the flavor can be quite pleasing to the taste buds. I know you still want some!!!

Science - Kahlua

Science involves a mixture of experiments just like this drink is a coffee flavored liqueur… add it to your favorite type of drink for the perfect mixture.

Undecided - Coffee Beans

Just like the beans sitting there on the counter, you have potential to sprout into any coffee of your choice. The future is all yours. The world is your coffee bean.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

Sweet Potatoes Are The Most Underrated Vegetable Of All Time

Everything you need to know about the pieces of edible gold we call "sweet potatoes" and why they will always perish over any plain old potato.


The potato. The heart of the American food industry. A versatile vegetable crop soaked in grease that brings us some of our favorite appetizers and sides. From french fries, to curly fries, to tater tots, to baked potatoes, to hash browns, this hallowed vegetable has become the Johnny Depp of the vegetable family. Now, we are all aware that the configurations of potatoes are limitless, but we commonly disregard the potato's delicious and neglected brother: the sweet potato. I, a credible food connoisseur and highly experienced eater, am here to tell you why you are missing out on a world of flavor if you choose to dismiss the beloved sweet potato and its many entities.

Let me first start this tirade by proving to you my credibility...I, too, once believed that regular french fries were better than sweet potato fries. I scoffed at the idea of choosing those ridiculous orange sticks over my tried-and-true plain boys. I could not be convinced that any sweetness should impede on my savory snacks.

These were dark times.

It was not until a mere month ago that my mind was changed forever.

It was a sunny (scary) Sunday morning, and my pounding head led me on a mission to indulge myself in the finest breakfast foods. I entered my favorite breakfast diner, Angelo's, and waited anxiously for my waiter to stroll over. She filled our water cups and asked if we wanted to start with any appetizers. Before my stingy self could even decline the offer, my best friend ordered a round of sweet potato fries for the table and the waiter scurried away. I stared blankly at her for a solid minute. I could not wrap my head around the concept of munching on sweet potato fries at 8 in the morning. She just stared back and said, "Trust me." Suddenly, a tray of blood orange sticks and a mysterious tan sauce appeared in front of my face. As much as I wanted to ponder the morality of this decision, the hunger began to take over, and I shoved one of the fries into my mouth.

In an instant, it was as if time and space had lost all meaning. When my teeth hit the fry, the perfectly crusted outer shell crunched softly making a sound much like your foot crushing a dried leaf. The now exposed inside of the fry was the perfect blend of mush and warmth that felt like your mouth was receiving a hug. The flavor...unbelievable. It didn't take me long to realize that this wasn't a fry — this was a culinary experience. This fry single-handedly blew the roof off of any predisposed ideas I had about American cuisine.

I am well aware that my fry experience cannot be simulated again by any average food-goer, but I challenge you, the reader of this article, to get out there and enjoy a sweet potato in any form. Stray from your basic fries or tater tots and dabble in a sweet treat which will undoubtedly bring you flavorful satisfaction.
