My Birthstone Is A Coffee Bean
Bella Decourcy

Do you daydream about the next cup of coffee you're going to have? Do you become a psycho when you don't have your morning cup? Is your Instagram only pictures of coffee? Well, if you answered those questions with "yes" then you just might have a coffee addiction. If you agree with these 10 signs, then you're in trouble; you definitely have a coffee problem.

1. You reek!

You always smell like you just walked right out of a coffee shop, which is probably true. The smell of your morning cup lingers on you for the rest of the day and you don't necessarily mind it. Don't even get me started on if you actually spent more time than your wait in line in Starbucks, because then you will for sure have to go home and change. You are basically a walking coffee shop.

2. Pictures, pictures, pictures

Your Instagram is FULL of pictures of your coffee. Who are we kidding? Your Instagram is just pictures of coffee. You practically post a picture of your coffee every day on Snapchat and you're pretty sure your followers are sick of seeing the same "Starbucks in hand/scenery in the background" photo that is posted at least once a week. But, you're not going to stop, you'll just keep saying it's "your thing."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F26%2F635998334167101333-1604619293_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=929&h=ffac81bdf06965b7c5a9210a142402cfbb7ff74b9513e8b3c71703352e2464a5&size=980x&c=3908735646 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F26%252F635998334167101333-1604619293_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D929%26h%3Dffac81bdf06965b7c5a9210a142402cfbb7ff74b9513e8b3c71703352e2464a5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3908735646%22%7D" expand=1]

3. Bank account

All of your money is spent on coffee. You basically only have a job to support your coffee addiction, who has time to pay for bills anyways?! And it doesn't even bother you anymore when the bank has to go over your recent purchases to verify it was you. Oh, the last four purchases were at Starbucks? Yep, that was me.

4. Are you sure?

You don't trust people who don't drink coffee. Seriously, who doesn't like coffee?! That's your number one question when first meeting people, do you like coffee? If the answer is no, then you don't need them in your life anyways.

5. Coffee dates

You are having coffee dates practically every day, because c'mon, where else are you and your BFF going to go? The baristas would think something is wrong if you didn't show up to Starbucks at 10:00am like you do every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F26%2F635998334171320111-1415972529_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=223&h=6cfc43f46446f7e13e58cf5cc212235524fb41cac5d2cfdf98d804b697c17ebe&size=980x&c=92404798 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F26%252F635998334171320111-1415972529_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D223%26h%3D6cfc43f46446f7e13e58cf5cc212235524fb41cac5d2cfdf98d804b697c17ebe%26size%3D980x%26c%3D92404798%22%7D" expand=1]

6. The baristas know you

At your usual coffee shop, the baristas know exactly who you are. You don't even have to give them your name anymore; in fact, all of baristas know your name. Most of them even know your order. So, when you go and order your white mocha, you're not even surprised when the girl behind the counter says, "Did you want to add raspberry to that?" Since, that is your typical winter drink.

7. Iced coffee with half&half, two splendas and caramel drizzle

You don't think any orders are crazy anymore. Someone could literally order the whole coffee shop into one cup and you would think, "Hm, I might have to try that next time." Which, of course, you won't because you'll stick with your usual summer drink: iced coffee with half&half, two splendas and caramel drizzle.

8. Exploring!

You are forever exploring different places to find new coffee shops. You plan adventures with your friends and included in those plans, is finding a cute coffee shop. Duh, you have to find the perfect place to take a perfect picture for Instagram, just to add to your collection.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fstatic%2F543d9264e4b04bbe6d9afb1f%2F545fa749e4b01984f2a27c48%2F545fa769e4b01984f2a29720%2F1374525041000%2FGIF-adventure.gif%3Fformat%3Doriginal&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic.squarespace.com&s=503&h=677a9cf21abc408e035478b3973da08f8386aba9c71daa264cd2ab8b610da31e&size=980x&c=255719486 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fstatic%252F543d9264e4b04bbe6d9afb1f%252F545fa749e4b01984f2a27c48%252F545fa769e4b01984f2a29720%252F1374525041000%252FGIF-adventure.gif%253Fformat%253Doriginal%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fstatic.squarespace.com%26s%3D503%26h%3D677a9cf21abc408e035478b3973da08f8386aba9c71daa264cd2ab8b610da31e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D255719486%22%7D" expand=1]

9. Withdrawals

If you don't have coffee in at least two days, you begin having withdrawals. Your coffee in the morning is exactly what you need to get you through the day, so if you don't have your caffeine intake, things might get a little fiery. Remember that time you didn't have your coffee in the morning and you were out and about the whole day and by the time you finally were able to sit down at 5:00, you were a raging b*tch? Oh, that wasn't you? That was me? Yeah... we won't talk about it...

10. What are your hobbies?

You know the dreadful question, what are your hobbies? I'm pretty sure no one has hobbies anymore. Whenever anyone asks, you cringe, especially because the only thing that comes to mind is coffee. Seriously? The only thing that goes through your brain is that your hobbies consist of coffee dates? If that's the case, then you definitely have a coffee addiction. But, you're okay with it, you wouldn't want to be living your life any other way.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13423

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
