Anyone who knows me, knows I drink way too much coffee. Any chance I get, I will make my own or drive to go get some. Where am I before class? Getting coffee. Where am I after class? Getting coffee. How am I going to motivate myself to do my homework? With some coffee. My friends will see me at school and say, "Of course you have coffee".

I will admit, I am probably a caffeine addict by this point. There. I have taken the first step and have admitted that I have a problem. I love coffee way too much to stop drinking it and it has come to my realization that I may drink coffee more than I drink water. Crazy, right? I'll drink coffee so fast that you would think I was drinking water.

Coffee is just so tasty. I have my moods with it; sometimes I'll be daring and just go with straight black coffee and add a few packets of sugar. Most times, I'll add syrup and some milk and just go to town. I'm not really picky about my coffee. Even if the coffee tastes bitter or burnt, I am not going to have it be wasted, so you best believe I will still drink it and make the most out of it.

Have you ever seen those memes on Twitter where the body asks for water but it gets iced coffee instead? Yeah, I feel like that meme could have been made for me. Iced coffee is what runs through my veins and arteries. I am that girl that asks herself: "I've already had two large coffees; do I need another one?" as I am already waiting in line to get my third.

I run on caffeine; I work at two different coffee shops for crying out loud! I am a barista at GCBC on the campus of Grand Canyon University as well as a barista at Dutch Bros Coffee, so coffee really is my life. Besides my two jobs, I am a full-time student and spend a lot of my time doing extracurricular activities such as Pep Band so I definitely drink coffee to keep moving.

It has come to the point where I have a high tolerance for caffeine and I can drink a large coffee at 11:00 PM and be asleep by 11:45 PM. Caffeine doesn't keep me up at night anymore; I can sleep after consuming it. When I drink water, I literally hear my body singing and jumping for joy.

Now, let's talk prices. Last year while during the school year, my meal plan was $1,350 for both semesters giving me a total of $2,700 for the entire year. Each semester, I spent about $500 on coffee. So, out of $2,700, I spent approximately $1,000 on coffee alone. #Obsessed. Now, I spend a lot less but only because I get employee discounts! God bless those discounts.

My boyfriend asks me every day if I have had any water; he keeps track of me. He makes sure that I have water every day so thank God for him. He is the type of person who isn't really into drinking coffee or anything with caffeine except soda, so he tries to keep me balanced.

I am the girl who drinks a lot of coffee. I am the girl who tries to fit so many things into a little time frame of the day. I am the girl that likes to get hyped up and have fun. Most importantly, I am the girl who will always take care of her body no matter how bad her coffee addiction gets.

*Disclaimer: I actually drink a lot of water. I keep myself very hydrated so, for anyone who was worried about me from this article, there is nothing to worry about!

Have you tried them all?

As a waitress at Buffalo Wild Wings, one could say that I have a lot of experience will all of the different sauces. To be specific, there are 16 sauces and 5 dry seasonings. During training, employees have a chance to taste all of them. I am asked all of the time while working which sauces are the best or what certain sauces taste like, so after talking about them so much at work, I decided to write a review article. I've rated them from my least favorite to my ultimate go-to favorite sauce.


21. Teriyaki

I'm biased because this is one of the least spicy sauces, and I definitely prefer spicy wings. When tasting this sauce I was expecting it to taste like a teriyaki stick from a Chinese Restaurant, and while it sort of did, it also had a different sort of flavor to it that I didn't really like as a flavor for chicken wings.

20. Lemon Pepper

I'm also biased for this one because it is a dry seasoning and I prefer sauces. The taste of the seasoning isn't bad, I just feel like it would taste better on something like a chip.

19. Asian Zing

This sauce is really popular at B-dubs. Someone at almost all of my tables will order it, however, it just isn't one of my favorites.

18. Mango Habanero

This is one of the spiciest sauces. Even though I love spicy, I prefer some of the other sauces over this one.

17. Salt and Vinegar

This is another one of the dry seasonings. It is really good, but again, I think it would be better for a chip.

16. Thai Curry

This sauce taste like chili. It's not bad, just not one of my favorites for wings. It is really good on fries though!

15. Caribbean Jerk

This sauce is also really good on fries, but not a favorite of mine for chicken.

14. Dessert Heat

This dry seasoning is yummy, but very spicy.

13. Wild

This is the second spiciest sauce on the menu. I do like spicy sauces, but this one is just way to spicy to eat too much of it.

12. Buffalo

This is a good option if you are looking for a dry seasoning that is spicy. It is really good, but lower on my list because it is a dry seasoning, and I definitely prefer the texture of the sauces.

11. Parmesan Garlic

This is another one of the most commonly ordered flavors at B-dubs. While it is tasty, it is also one of the flavors that I feel tastes better on fries than on wings.

10. Honey BBQ

I love almost any bbq sauce and the B-dubs sweet bbq is no exception.

9. Mild

This is a great sauce when you're feeling spicy, but don't want something too harsh.

8. Blazin'

The first time I ever tried this sauce was on a dare. It is definitely the spiciest thing I have ever tasted, and it made my eyes water the first time I tried it. However, once you get passed the intense burning, the flavor is actually pretty good. This sauce is in my top ten becauselcrf5 how many people can say they've tried the hottest sauce on the menu?

7. Hot

This sauce is a perfect amount of spicy for those days that you really want to feel the burn. Goes perfect with a side of ranch.

6. Sweet BBQ

Once again, I love bbq sauce.

5. Chipotle BBQ

Even though I am not a huge fan of the dry seasonings, this one is amazing.

4. Hot BBQ

I love BBQ and I love spicy, and this sauce is the perfect combination of both!

3. Bourbon Honey Mustard

I am not usually a fan of honey mustard, but the B-dubs version is amazing. Definitely one of my go to sauces.

2. Medium

This sauce is the perfect spicy sauce for wings because it is hot, but doesn't require you to down three glasses of water after every bite. It also tastes great in the mac and cheese!

1. Spicy Garlic 

This is my all time favorite sauce. If I'm getting wings, I am getting this sauce on at least half of them.

8 Taco Recipes That Go Way Beyond The Basic Tortillas And Salsa

There's no denying tacos are awesome. That's probably why an entire day of the week is dedicated to them. If you're looking for a new way to spice up your Tuesday night, or you just want to try a new twist on an old recipe, you are definitely in the right place.

1. The Bacon Weave Taco

It's a scientific fact that bacon makes everything better. If you're looking for a way to amp up your tacos, what better way than with a bacon-weave shell?

Don't worry, making the shells is super easy and only takes minutes. Once baked, they will hold shape and are ready to be filled to the brim. Stuffed with eggs, chives, cheese, avocado and a touch of salsa, these bacon tacos are sure to satisfy your cravings for everything savory.

2. The Sushi Taco

If you love sushi, why not try it in taco form? These sushi tacos are super easy to make and can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes. The recipe recommends using salmon and tuna but you can always swap them out for your personal favorites.

You'll need a few specialty ingredients, like nori seaweed, which is fried into a shell and sriracha sauce for the spicy mayonnaise. You'll also need sushi rice, which is cooked in a mixture of rice wine vinegar, sugar and salt. The result is a delicious dish you'll want to recreate again and again.

3. The Greek Taco

Yes, it's a gyro, but it's also a taco. If you want a taste of the Mediterranian but can't afford a flight, bring Greece to you with these delicious Greek tacos with lamb and tzatziki sauce.

The sauce, a combination of plain yogurt, lemon juice, garlic and grated cucumber, is simple to put together and can be premade. Once the lamb is cooked, you can assemble your tacos with toppings like spinach, tomatoes and avocado. Don't forget that tzatziki, though, it's literally the best.

4. The Sweet Potato Taco

If you're looking for a tasty new vegetarian recipe or just don't feel like a trip to the grocery store, consider trying these sweet potato and black bean tacos.

The "meat" of these tacos is a mixture of sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, corn and black beans. To get the flavors mingling, honey, lime and spices like cumin and paprika are then tossed in. Once the potatoes are soft, serve the mixture warm over heated corn tortillas.

5. The Cheese Lover’s Taco

Do you call yourself a cheese connoisseur? Are you always looking for the best pairings? If you can't get enough of the orange stuff, then check out these tacos with shells made entirely from cheese.

The shells are simple to make, best done by laying a pile of shredded cheese on a silicone mat and baking for five to seven minutes. Then, the cheese is hung to dry, forming a taco shell shape. Afterwards, you can fill it with your favorite toppings, like ground beef, avocado, sour cream and salsa.

6. The Lettuce Wrap Taco

Choosing between delicious tacos and a swimsuit-ready body can be hard. That's why many of us are looking for ways to cut calories without having to give up our favorite foods. Now, with lettuce wrap tacos, you can enjoy a tasty treat without feeling guilty afterward.

Once you have your romaine lettuce shells, fill the insides with chicken breast cooked with garlic and taco seasoning. Then, top it off with sour cream or Greek yogurt, jalapenos and avocado. You can also substitute your own toppings, like diced tomatoes and feta cheese.

7. The Curry Taco

If you're looking for a taco that can pack a punch, consider trying out these coconut curry chicken tacos. While you'll need the classic grilled corn tortilla to get started, the rest of the recipe is unique.

The chicken curry filling is made with coconut milk, red curry paste and chicken breast. Once cooked, it's topped with Granny Smith apple salsa and mango sauce, which is a combination of mangos, jalapeno chiles and curry paste.

8. The Ice Cream Taco

Tacos aren't limited to the main course. With the right ingredients, like flour tortillas, sugar, chocolate chips and more, they're also a great way to enjoy dessert.

This ice cream taco starts with a regular flour tortilla, fried with butter in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Once cooked, you dip the edges of the shell in melted chocolate and allow it to harden. Afterward, fill with your favorite ice cream flavor and cover with toppings like sprinkles and whipped cream.
