My 6 Go-To Starbucks Orders

Because, sometimes, ordering at Starbucks can be a little intimidating.


Have you ever gone to Starbucks and stared at the menu without a clue as to what sounds good or what you would like? When I first started frequenting the local Starbucks, I had to just experiment with drinks to discover what I liked best. After trying all kinds of coffees and refreshers, here is a list of my 6 go-to orders.

Strawberry Acai Refresher

As cheesy as it sounds, this drink is so gosh-darn refreshing. It's perfect in the summer...or the spring, fall, and winter if I'm being honest. It has an amazing strawberry flavor and can be a good choice if you aren't a coffee lover but still want to be a part of the Starbucks world. I personally like to order mine "made with lemonade", but it's delicious in its traditional form as well.

Iced Caramel Macchiato

For the longest time, my best friend always ordered these, and I refused to ever try it. One day when I was feeling adventurous, I went for it and instantly fell in love. Not only is an iced caramel macchiato very aesthetically pleasing, it also happens to taste phenomenal. If you aren't a huge fan of a strong coffee flavor, try ordering it with a few extra pumps of vanilla. Also (fun fact), caramel macchiatos are actually made with vanilla syrup but just have caramel drizzle on top.

Passion Tea Lemonade

This actually happens to be what I'm drinking as I type this article. The passion tea alone is good, but I like to mix lemonade into the drinks that I can. I typically get my drink sweetened with the classic syrup as well. It doesn't have any caffeine, but sometimes I'm just in the mood for a cold, fruity drink.

Iced Coffee

If I need something fairly simple, a little less pricey and will wake me up, iced coffee is a great choice. I like to order mine with caramel or vanilla syrup and whole milk. I wish I could drink my coffee black, but I'm just not at that level yet. Honestly, though, you just can't go wrong with iced coffee.

White Chocolate Mocha

This is one of the few hot drinks that I order. The white chocolate mocha is perfect if you want something sweet that also has espresso to wake you up a little bit. I drink this year-round but more-so in the winter. If you happen to be someone who doesn't enjoy a lot of espresso, try ordering it with just one shot instead of two.

Caramel Frappuccino

The caramel frappuccino should more-so be considered dessert that an actual drink. I don't order it too often, but it always feels like a treat when I do. It is so sweet with just a hint of espresso. If you have never had a frappuccino, its a blended drink and reminds me of a milkshake, in a way. If you've had a rough day and need to treat yourself, try this one out.

There are still plenty of Starbucks drinks that I haven't tried, and I'm sure that I would like, but these were just to name a few. Although it might seem intimidating, head to Starbucks and try something that you haven't before.

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.

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.
