My Love Letter To Coffee

My Love Letter To Coffee

With much love, The Coffee Addict

Dear Coffee,

Let me start out by saying that yes, I started drinking you out of necessity. In high school it was hard to be awake at 7am. But through my early morning coffee runs I found a new appreciation for you. You were always there for me, you brightened my day when no one else could. Now, I don’t just drink you when I need to wake up or when I need to get a paper done that I saved until the last minute. No, I drink you because I love you.

Starting with the obvious, your taste. You are so black and bitter yet you can be transformed into something so sweet. Just a touch of milk and a squirt of pumpkin syrup can transform you into something so extraordinary that it should be illegal. You can be anything anybody wants you to be. Caramel, mocha, vanilla, hazelnut, and every flavor in between. You are great because you are so versatile.

Your taste isn’t the only thing I love about you though. I love how you can be a year-round treat! You can be served hot or cold, decaf or house blend, tall or Venti… the options are endless. For every occasion there is a different temperature, taste, or size to match.

The true coffee lover that I am also knows that you aren’t just for those dreadful mornings but you are for any time of day. As the saying goes, “Its 7am somewhere!” In the afternoons you help me through my long classes so that I don’t fall asleep. At night you help me get the motivation to finish my work, you keep me alert and focused. Any time of day you are a treat.

If you still don’t believe my love for you is true then know that you aren’t just good to me, but you are good for me. You have so many health benefits for example, you lower the risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s, reduces risk of suicide and depression, and even helps increase my fiber intake! You improve my energy levels, boost my metabolism, and provide me with all your nutrients. Without you I don’t know where I would be.

Coffee, you are the tangible form of liquid joy. You are amazing in every way. You don’t just help me but you help everyone around me because without you I would be lost. If it weren’t for you I don’t know if I would still even be in school. You keep me grounded. You keep me sane. I love you.

With much love,

The Coffee Addict

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

4 Reasons Hydroflask Is The Superior Water Bottle, This Is Not Up For Debate

We all know the risk of dropping a Hydro Flask.


I am currently on my second Hydro Flask, third lid, and I have entered the sticker phase of owning a defense weapon that holds your water at pleasantly cool temperatures. Since getting my first Hydro Flask I feel as if I have a little companion. I never get thirsty, my pee is a color that my doctor would be proud of, and I get to leave class a lot because I pee so much. I think Hydro Flask is the best reusable water bottle to exist. Heck, of course, it is better than a plastic water bottle, making a Hydro Flask the best water bottle in the world.

1. Picking the correct size and color

Okay, when picking out a Hydro Flask on the company's website, you can customize your own vacuumed insulated stainless steel water bottle. There are 11 different sizes, 3 different lid options, and over 16 different colors. So the options are almost endless.

2. Your water is always fresh, always, I don't even want to argue

Yes, that was me on the floor in fetal position featuring my best friend, Hydro Flask.

We all know that melting moment in the semester. Water is always strapped to my backpack and ready to support me through my struggles. I simply pull out my water bottle drink a little bit of water to replenish from crying over a missed assignment while I email my professor to apologize.

3. Opening a Hydro Flask or dropping it in public brings a lot of attention your way

Opening/closing your hydro flask be like. People turn their heads in class. God forbid you to drop it and make everyone jump and get real quiet. But it sounds a heck of a lot better than the crackling of a plastic water bottle and my water is not cold like Nalgene water bottles.

4. Will get dents but they are just decorations like your stickers

You are going to drop your water bottle and it will dent. But the dent will not prevent your Hydro Flask from keeping your water fresh. It adds character and identity to your water bottle like the stickers you will eventually cover it with.
