Drinking Coffee is Not a Personality Trait
Start writing a post

I don't drink coffee and I probably never will. Don't get me wrong, it always smells amazing and looks appetizing but it's not going to be a part of my life, ever. It's not like I haven't tried it before because I have, but no, I can't and I will not get used to the taste.

I often get criticized, or sometimes get appalled looks from people because they simply cannot think of their lives without coffee. I have actually thought about starting to drink it during tough and long nights studying during midterms and finals, and I might have had a slight craving for it during my binge watching of Gilmore Girls, but I don't think it'll be a purchase I make in the future.

Even though the ratio of coffee drinkers is more than non-coffee drinkers, there are still people who "lack" a taste bud for coffee and I'm sure they've suffered from answering people's questions and judgments as I have. Questions like "How do you survive?" and "Have you even tried coffee?" and comments like "You just have to get used to the taste" or "I wouldn't even be awake if I were you" have been made countless times, and frankly I'm sick of it.

There are plenty of people who do not drink coffee in their daily lives and are perfectly fine. Frankly, I think it's a bit pathetic that people are so reliant on their two to three cups of coffee, sometimes even more per day and are judgmental of people who don't spend their money on a caffeine addiction.

I'm not trying to sound condescending or rude, but it most definitely is not a personality trait, which according to a lot of people I follow or come across on Twitter, it is. It's become such a large part of pop culture, that it is considered weird if you don't drink coffee just like it's considered weird if you don't look or think like most of the population or culture.

There are actually a lot of pros of not drinking coffee, definitely a lot more than drinking it, in my opinion, such as: You save a lot of time and money in the mornings; You don't have coffee breath; You may be tired in the morning but you're not addicted to caffeine; You don't sound like an idiot saying a mouthful of gibberish at Starbucks; And you have more money for food-or alcohol (a drink that's worth spending money on).

This isn't really an opportunity for me to rant, but then again it kind of is, but I think people are more than their coffee order, or their coffee addiction. Have more depth than that, people, and don't rely on coffee to alter your mood, or maybe go a day or two without coffee so you're not relying on it so much. The first step of addiction is admitting to it, okay?

What I'm saying in summary is to each their own with the things they like or dislike, just don't belittle people for not liking something that is a hugely a part of your life and don't let a liquid plant become a part of your personality. Okay thanks, bye.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

17346

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
