It's national espresso day, folks, and that means that here is where I confess my undying love for coffee. Ever since I was little, I just wanted to drink coffee, since I saw all my grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles drinking it; also the fact that I wasn't allowed to drink it made me crave it even more.
I didn't start drinking coffee 'til I was a freshman in high school. I used to drink it with my grandmother and we would talk about life after I came home from school everyday. Some people watch TV shows with someone as a way of bonding, but mine was sharing that cup of coffee with my grandmother. So, everyday, until the end of my senior year, I had a cup of coffee.
On my college campus, there's a Starbucks, and we can use our money from our meal plan. So I just want to say thank you:
Thank you for helping me get up for those 8:30's and for helping me pay attention when I thought I couldn't carry on through the day.
Thank you for helping me recover from the weekend filled with "studying."
Thank you for giving me the burst of energy where it felt like I could conquer anything in the world.
Thank you for being the perfect combination of sweet and bitter.
Thank you for giving a variety of drinks to choose from to and always fulfilling my needs.
But most of all, thank you so much for bringing friends and family together.
