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.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

5 Things You Need To Know About Thinx Underwear

Those of you with a uterus, listen up.


I first heard about Thinx underwear two years ago while on a subway in Washington DC. I thought the whole idea of leakproof underwear sounded a bit too much like diapers and brushed the product aside. Fast forward two years, my mom states that she is going to buy a pair to try and offered to get me one too. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did!

If you're not familiar with Thinx allow me to explain. It's a company that prides themselves on creating underwear specifically designed for individuals to wear during their periods. Looking at the reviews, everyone seemed to love them, and after trying them out for myself, I must say I like them quite a lot. Here are a few important things to know about Thinx underwear.

1. It doesn’t always replace your pads/tampons

Thinx may not replace tampons, but it can help cut back the amount you use.

I learned this the hard way that if you have a heavy flow, you can't wear Thinx on its own. If you have a light flow, you could get away with only wearing these, but for us poor souls with heavy flows, I recommend making these your new period underwear. You never have to worry about any leaks, even at night!

2. They don't stain

Behold! No bloodstains!

If you leak onto this underwear, fear not. Merely rinse them in the sink and then throw them in the wash like normal and boom! Clean underwear. No more ugly stained underwear to keep in the corner of your drawer.

3. There’s a bunch of cute designs/colors

There's something for everyone!

One thing I must say about Thinx is that they have a wide variety of options. There are several different cuts, and almost all of them come in different colors options as well. They seem to be introducing new colors all the time, so keep an eye out for one you like.

4. They are super comfy!

These feel just like normal underwear.

When I got my pair, I was worried that this underwear would feel like wearing a diaper or something else uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all! This underwear when you're wearing it feels like normal underwear, and while you're washing it, it feels like a swimsuit.

5. They donate to a good cause

Everyone should have access to period products. Period.

For every pair of underwear that you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need. It seems like most are sent to developing countries where women do not have access to proper menstruation hygiene products. In addition to this, Thinx was designed to help cut back the number of disposable pads entering landfills. They designed this underwear to be a more sustainable alternative for people with periods!
