I'm Pissed Off At Starbucks New Cups, Because I'm Making A Difference

They hate Jesus. Plain and simple.

I'm Pissed Off At Starbucks New Cups, Because I'm Making A Difference

wStarbucks clearly hates Christmas. And Jesus. And fun. And probably freedom. Have you seen their new cups? They're GREEN! What is that? Where's the pictures of Christmas trees, or presents, or I don't know, Jesus? Starbucks clearly needs to be a Christian company since obviously Christianity is the only way. Their cups are green too! Where did the red go?

Starbucks says this design is a "mosaic of more than a hundred people drawn in one continuous stroke."

Apparently Howard Shultz, the CEO of Starbucks, wants to "celebrate community." Apparently he said, “During a divisive time in our country, Starbucks wanted to create a symbol of unity as a reminder of our shared values, and the need to be good to each other."

Why are we celebrating community? Shouldn't we be celebrating Jesus? That's what the holiday season is all about, right? We don't like giving, or coming together for the holidays, we simply celebrate Jesus, and that's all we're allowed to celebrate.

And look at the outrage on Twitter!

Like, what the heck Starbucks? This isn't cool.

Oh wait. These cups were meant for the Presidential election, since we seem to be more divided than ever, and these are actually the new holiday cups? I was getting upset at a cup that was meant to promote unity?

Well, ok. The green cups are fine, but I'm still going to mad about these cups instead of being mad about any real issue in the world, because obviously that's going to make a real change in the world.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
