Inside The Head Of A Coffee Addict

Inside The Head Of A Coffee Addict

Give me coffee and I'll love you forever.

As an individual who loves a good cup of joe, it's hard for me to imagine a day without my one true love. Now, there are many people who may critique my coffee intake, but like everyone says, you can’t help who you fall in love with. It seems like the more you drink coffee, the more you get addicted and, before long, you turn into that jittery girl who drinks more than eight cups a day (whoops)! There are haters out there and many names will be thrown your way (I for one get compared to Lorelai Gilmore on the regular).

However, you always know deep down that you couldn’t make it through the day without that dear friend, coffee. It is your crutch, it is your daydream and, most importantly, it is your true love. There may be debate over whether your intake of coffee is borderline lethal, but truth be told, if you’re like me, you probably don’t give a damn. So if you are addicted to that sweet coffee bean like I am, here are some daily occurrences you probably run into.

1. *Wakes up* First thought is always “I need coffee!”

2. Your roommate says "good morning," but you are dead to the world until that sweet elixir is running through you.

3. You plan your day around when you will fit in your cups of coffee.

4. While most people stock up on food in their room you stock up on K-Cups and coffee beans.

5. You have two cups before you go to class.

6. And pour a third for your walk there.

7. You silently cry tears when you finish the end of the cup in class.

8. But its all OK once you refill at your local coffee shop.

9. You don’t waste your time with sugar and cream because you drink so much of it that you have come to appreciate the rich taste.

10. You don’t ever experience caffeine headaches because you are anal about drinking your coffee every day.

11. The world actually looks prettier after your body is fueled with your blessed coffee.

12. You get told on a daily basis that you drink too much coffee.

13. And that too much caffeine is bad for you.

14. But you take advice from Taylor Swift and “shake it off” because your hand feels empty without your cup.

15. You sometimes just sit and smell your coffee beans because they are just so intoxicating.

16. When someone suggests getting coffee they become your new best friend.

17. You can drink a cup of coffee before bed and still pass out within five minutes. Coffee is your b---h.

18. You realize that you don't need a person anymore. Coffee is your true love.

Let’s face it, some people need fancy gifts and lots of money to make them happy. But for you, all you need is a good hot cup of coffee. So to all you critics, instead of judging us, you should perhaps thank us for being so easy to please.

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Not the horror story kind of roommate, but the one that was truly awesome.

Nostalgic feelings have recently caused me to reflect back on my freshman year of college. No other year of my life has been filled with more ups and downs, and highs and lows, than freshman year. Throughout all of the madness, one factor remained constant: my roommate. It is time to thank her for everything. These are only a few of the many reasons to do so, and this goes for roommates everywhere.

You have been through all the college "firsts" together.

If you think about it, your roommate was there through all of your first college experiences. The first day of orientation, wishing you luck on the first days of classes, the first night out, etc. That is something that can never be changed. You will always look back and think, "I remember my first day of college with ____."

You were even each other's first real college friend.

You were even each other's first real college friend.

Months before move-in day, you were already planning out what freshman year would be like. Whether you previously knew each other, met on Facebook, or arranged to meet in person before making any decisions, you made your first real college friend during that process.

The transition from high school to college is not easy, but somehow you made it out on the other side.

It is no secret that transitioning from high school to college is difficult. No matter how excited you were to get away from home, reality hit at some point. Although some people are better at adjusting than others, at the times when you were not, your roommate was there to listen. You helped each other out, and made it through together.

Late night talks were never more real.

Remember the first week when we stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m. every night? Late night talks will never be more real than they were freshman year. There was so much to plan for, figure out, and hope for. Your roommate talked, listened, laughed, and cried right there with you until one of you stopped responding because sleep took over.

You saw each other at your absolute lowest.

It was difficult being away from home. It hurt watching relationships end and losing touch with your hometown friends. It was stressful trying to get in the swing of college level classes. Despite all of the above, your roommate saw, listened, and strengthened you.

...but you also saw each other during your highest highs.

After seeing each other during the lows, seeing each other during the highs was such a great feeling. Getting involved on campus, making new friends, and succeeding in classes are only a few of the many ways you have watched each other grow.

There was so much time to bond before the stresses of college would later take over.

Freshman year was not "easy," but looking back on it, it was more manageable than you thought at the time. College only gets busier the more the years go on, which means less free time. Freshman year you went to lunch, dinner, the gym, class, events, and everything else possible together. You had the chance to be each other's go-to before it got tough.

No matter what, you always bounced back to being inseparable.

Phases of not talking or seeing each other because of business and stress would come and go. Even though you physically grew apart, you did not grow apart as friends. When one of you was in a funk, as soon as it was over, you bounced right back. You and your freshman roommate were inseparable.

The "remember that one time, freshman year..." stories never end.

Looking back on freshman year together is one of my favorite times. There are so many stories you have made, which at the time seemed so small, that bring the biggest laughs today. You will always have those stories to share together.

The unspoken rule that no matter how far apart you grow, you are always there for each other.

It is sad to look back and realize everything that has changed since your freshman year days. You started college with a clean slate, and all you really had was each other. Even though you went separate ways, there is an unspoken rule that you are still always there for each other.

Your old dorm room is now filled with two freshmen trying to make it through their first year. They will never know all the memories that you made in that room, and how it used to be your home. You can only hope that they will have the relationship you had together to reflect on in the years to come.

Poetry On The Odyssey: Chasing Daffodils

My Vision Is Clear


In the day we chase daffodils

cradling their petals oh so delicately

as they fan their beauty in the sunlight

we hold white knuckled hands

ambling through the meadow

care free

but as the sky grows dark

and our vision blurs

that hand grows claws

painful to the touch, we release each other

and take off,

running so swiftly from the bears and the wolves and the vultures

that we forget to open our eyes

and find strength in each other

To combat these demons

with the force of a thousand warriors,

instead of silhouettes dancing in the night
