7 Reasons Local Coffee Shops Are Better Then Starbucks

Local coffee shops will always be better than big chain coffee shops. With local coffee shops, you get the aroma and vibe you want in a coffee shop, along with better prices and more drink options.

Here are seven reasons why local coffee shops are better than big chain coffee shops:

1. White coffee

Most local coffee shops I've been to have this amazing thing called white coffee. If you haven't tried white coffee you really need to. White espresso has more caffeine and a nuttier flavor. It also has less of the bitterness of regular coffee for you anti-coffee drinkers out there.

2. Interesting people

Local coffee shops always have a story. The workers, the owners, and the customers. Some people go to the same coffee shop every day and have for years, you'll never know what kind of people you'll meet there.

3. Shop local

If you support local coffee shops, you're supporting your city. Supporting local business is key to a great community.

4. More drink options

Local coffee shops are always known to have so many drink options, the menu is endless. Even if it's not on the menu baristas always have recommendations on the best drink concoctions.

5. Daily specials

Many local coffee shops have daily specials throughout the week. It could be 50 cents off your drink or even a happy hour on Red Bulls, there's always some sort of special that you can get a deal on.

6. Punch cards

Local coffee shops are known for having punch cards. Usually, buy 10 drinks get one drink any size free. These are the best because you can save them up and use them on a yummy drink when you are having a rough Monday.

7. Atmosphere

In local coffee shops, there's always a different atmosphere than big name coffee shops. There's usually more spots to study and chit-chat as well as interesting art to look at. The atmosphere is just better local.

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.

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.

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.
