Drip Coffee In Columbia, SC, Needs To Be A Go-To For Locals

Anybody who knows me knows that I am an avid coffee drinker. More specifically, I am a local coffee shop enthusiast.

Since moving to Columbia, SC, there aren't many coffee shops that I haven't tried. Honestly, I haven't found many coffee shops in Columbia that I haven't been pleased with; however, that doesn't mean that I wouldn't find the one local coffee shop that would become my go-to.

With two locations, one in Five-Points and one down Main Street, Drip has hands down become my favorite local coffee shop in Columbia, SC.

You can usually find me at the location in Five-Points, but I have tried both shops and they are both equally great. Drip just has this whole good vibe thing going. The rustic feel and moody lighting are perfect for relaxing. Not only can you find the best coffee in town at Drip, but you can also buy records and to me there just isn't a better combination.

The staff at Drip are some of the most friendly baristas that I have ever met.

They are so edgy and outgoing. Within a week of going, the usual barista that worked around the time I would show up knew my name and drink order, and there is no better feeling than knowing that you are known. They are so fun to just have conversations with and they genuinely seem happy to have conversations with you. Nothing feels forced, and that is a wonderful feeling.

The coffee at Drip is phenomenal.

I always order a Dirty Vanilla Chai Tea Latte and let me tell you, I've yet to find a coffee shop that can make it to the perfection that the Drip baristas make it. Just trust me, you need to try it. I have never been disappointed by the outcome of my drink.

And if you didn't think it could get any better, you can almost always find a dog hanging out in Drip. That's right, they let you bring dogs! I mean that was enough to win me over.

Drip stays open until 10 o'clock p.m. making it a perfect study location.

They are open late enough for you to get work done without the midnight crowd of Five-Points party-goers. Parking can be a little hectic at times, but the struggle to find a parking space is well worth it.

I am almost always at this coffee shop. I mean literally, ask anybody. If you can't find me, just check Drip. I go there for morning coffee, late night study sessions and even just for meet-ups with friends. The warm and friendly environment constantly makes me want to come back.

Drip coffee is a wonderful coffee shop. It is so close to The University of South Carolina; you can actually walk to it.

If you love coffee and if you love supporting local businesses, check this place out.

You may even run into me there!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
