Thanks for never letting me down.

Dear Starbucks,

To my home away from home, the place that provides me with a beverage with energy when I need it most. It’s truly amazing that you can automatically boost my mood when I step right through your doors.

From your comfy chairs, to the inspiring music that plays in the background to the aroma, you’re the perfect place. I can spend time working on homework or catching up with friends. I don’t know what it is about you, but I find myself in complete focus when I’m there. My favorite time of year is during the holiday season when my venti red cups are filled with Peppermint Mochas. However, you never fail to amaze me with your Passion Iced Tea Lemonade or your Caramel Macchiatos during the other times of the year.

Some may call it an obsession, I call it love. Where would I be without you? My parents sometimes are concerned that I have had gold status for this long. But where would I be if I didn’t have you, the caffeine and warmth you provide me? It’s hard to forget something as amazing as you, Starbucks.

Sometimes, Starbucks, you do get on my nerves. Every once in a while, you spell my name wrong – Alex, Alexis, Alexia. The wait sometimes is ridiculous, but I do it anyways.

Thanks for always being there,

Me, your number one fan

10 Reasons Moe's Will Always And Forever Be Superior To Chipotle

Welcome to Moe's!

With the great debate between which burrito place is the best, here are 10 reasons why Moe's is clearly the better option than Chipotle. *Side note, I do like Chipotle, but Moe's will always be No. 1 in my heart.

1. WELCOME TO MOE'S!

You don't get this kind of hospitality from Chipotle.

2. Their menu is much larger.

Moe's offers burritos, quesadillas, nachos, burrito bowls, tacos, salads, and they all have cool names! Chipotle just has burritos, bowls, tacos, and salads. BORING.

3. They offer a variety of toppings.


Moe's offers over 20 fresh ingredients while Chipotle has...barely anything. :/

4. Moe Monday.

$5 BURRITOS!!!!! Seriously no one can beat that.

5. Their prices in general.


At Chipotle it's $6.50 just for a for a burrito alone. Add on chips, guac and a drink and that's roughly $13. At Moe's you can get a burrito, chips, unlimited salsa, and a drink for $8.80. Add on queso and that's only $1.25 more. (But totally worth it!!!) Which brings me to my next case...

6. QUESO!!!!!!!!!!

Queso is bae. That is all.

7. Free chips and a salsa bar!

We don't pay extra here.

8. The atmosphere at Moe's just feels better.

Chipotle's are usually tiny little restaurants that barely have any tables. Every time I go to Chipotle I feel rushed to eat my food because people are usually hovering over you looking for a seat. Moe's is like five times it size and they play good music.

9. Moe's is made with FRESH ingredients.


I'm not even gonna get into the whole Chipotle situation...

10. Overall, Moe's just tastes better than Chipotle.


Sorry 'bout it.

7 Things Every Commuter College Student Needs

Trust me, this will make your life so much easier.

The commuting struggle is real. But throughout my last two weeks commuting on the bus, I have compiled a list of items that will surely make your commute to and from school a hundred times easier.

1. A portage charger 

Giphy

My phone has died almost every single day. My gaps are so short that I have to choose between eating lunch or finding an outlet so I decided to buy a portable charger, it's sooo worth it !!!

2. A sweater 

Giphy

ALWAYS. BRING. A. SWEATER!

Make sure to layer in order to be comfortable throughout the day. And always carry an extra sweater because there are some classrooms that have no mercy and literally feel like a fridge.

3. A tote bag 

Giphy

Girl, I know. You are already carrying a backpack so why would I add a tote bag? But hear me out. You have to carry your lunch or your extra sweater or your computer and phone charger somewhere. This makes it easier to keep this stuff separated from your notebooks, laptop, etc. Plus if you get a cute tote bag it'll make your outfit perfect!

4. Hydroflask 

Ok, it doesn't need to be a hydroflask but I feel like these water bottles are literally indestructible. Last year I dropped mine from the top of my bunk bed and it only got the smallest dent. It also keeps your water at the same temperature the whole day. No joke, I put ice cold water on my hydro flask one morning and came back to my dorm at 10 pm and it was still freezing cold.

5. A pair of good headphones

Giphy

This is another thing learned from my experience. I'm very used to working in noisy environments because I just plug in my earphones and drown out the world. Noise-canceling earphones work best. And trust me a good pair of earphones go a long way because they're going to provide you with entertainment during your downtime.

6. Comfortable shoes 

Giphy

To be quite honest with you, I feel like I walk less now than when I lived on campus (shoutout to the UCLA hills). My bus drops me off on campus daily and I stay there for all of my class. Nonetheless, a pair of good shoes is definitely necessary. You are going to be out on campus for many hours and you want to make sure to be comfortable. My go to's are my pair of slip on vans.

7. A reliable weather app

Giphy

This is one I'm still struggling with. In the morning I heck the iPhone weather app but it has failed me multiple times. And honestly this is the key to having a good day, well at least for me. I want to dress accordingly to the weather but when it keeps failing me I end up being a sweaty mess because I came dressed ready for winter.
