If College Majors Were Teas

If College Majors Were Teas

Get ready for some quali-tea comparisons!

Over the last couple of days, I’ve been recovering from a little bug that has left my throat feeling all sorts of achey. Naturally, I’ve turned to the miraculously soothing qualities tea has to offer. I’ve made so many glasses of hot water with lemon and honey that I started noticing the similarities between different kinds of tea and different kinds of college majors. I looked up some of the health benefits for different kinds of tea online.

Based off of those and what may or may not be some of my past experiences with people in these majors, here are the ones that stood out the most.

1. Loose leaf = History majors

They can be a little all over the place, make sense with all of the things they need to know about. But also, much like the extra bit of preparation required for this tea, these majors put in all the extra effort in their school work and friendships.

2. Tea bags = Business/Econ majors

They can be kinda basic. I mean there are always plenty of people majoring in these wherever you might be going to university. The quickest and easiest of the tea prep. This way they can… you know… get back to business as usual.

3. Home remedy teas = Gender Studies majors

Because they’re always finding new and exciting ways to combine things. Much like lemon wedges and cinnamon sticks—intersectionality I'm looking at you.

4. Matcha powder = Psychology majors

They can be a little bitter at first, but once you get used to them you’ll be surprised you ever felt differently.

5. Black tea = Basically any of the science-y majors.

They need the caffeine to get up stay up and stay focused on studying since that's all they talk about doing anyway.

6. Mint tea = Communication majors

In addition to being caffeine free, peppermint, spearmint, and other kinds of mint tea are good for digestion and alleviate headaches. This makes sense because people who are good communicators don't leave you feeling as if you have a headache and mild indigestion.

7. Oolong tea = English majors

Mostly because this is the most common tea I've seen referenced to puns, and we all know that any English major worth their salt loves those.

I’m only tea-sing. Feel free to pass this on to anyone you know that fits this to a TEA.

11 of the Most Annoying Starbucks Orders

I know we all have our own opinions, but come on.

When people find out I work at Starbucks, the first thing they say is, "is it hard memorizing all the drinks?" In all honesty, it really isn't all that bad. Until these people come along. There's being high maintenance and then there's being unnecessarily annoying. These people are the latter. Some of these drinks are extremely time consuming to make, and some are just plain weird.

1. A Frappuccino with no ice

Excuse me, what?

2. A “nonfat, iced skinny mocha with light ice, whipped cream, and chocolate drizzle”

Okay, a.) nonfat comes in the ‘skinny’ description, and b.) this definitely isn’t skinny anymore. But you do you.

3. A Berry Hibiscus Refresher “shaken with berries, but no berries in the drink itself”

So you just want the drink to turn pink?

4. A “half caramel, half vanilla latte, decaf espresso heated only to 100° with nonfat milk and caramel drizzle on top”

This one is just a mouthful…

5. Upside down Macchiato

So a latte? You’re asking for a latte…?

6. Black Iced Tea *steamed* with 10 sweeteners that are not Splenda

Seriously? Just get hot black tea!

7. A “vanilla coconut milk cappuccino with no foam and whipped cream”

A cappuccino is just espresso and foam! What do you mean ‘no foam’?!

8. Layers of whipped cream with caramel and mocha drizzle between each layer

This is a coffee shop…at least get a drink.

9. A skinny vanilla latte steamed to exactly 137°

Can you honestly tell the difference between 137 and 140°?

10. A Java Chip Frappuccino with no chips

So... a mocha frapp?

11. A “venti matcha green tea Frappuccino made with soy milk, chips, and peppermint”

I’m sure this drink is actually really good, but it sure is annoying to make.

Customizing your order at Starbucks is not a big deal. Make it your own. Just don't be the a**hole that wants their milk steamed to 137 degrees.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
