6 Problems For People Who Don't Drink Coffee

6 Problems For People Who Don't Like Coffee

It tastes like sadness and it's time to admit it.



1. Starbucks is basically the only place you’ll get coffee.

Because let's face it, the milkshake you order has maybe one teaspoon of actual coffee in it and you can't even taste it through the caramel. At least the pink drink will never let you down.

2. Your first date with someone is a hassle.

Typically, your first date with someone is usually the cliche of "let's get a coffee sometime!", but hearing the cute guy ask you to go to some indie coffee shop with him after class honestly just kind of makes you feel bad.

3. You haven’t really found a good way to wake yourself up in the morning.

Most people start off their day with a hot cup of coffee, giving them enough caffeine to power through their monotonous schedule. However, you can't quite drag yourself out of bed.

4. You can’t keep yourself awake late at night.

College students have those typical all-night study sessions, most of which will put them through an entire pot in one night. For those of us who hate the taste of sadness, we still haven't really found a way to power through that, either.

5. Your room will never smell as good as your friend's does.

Honestly, coffee is one of the best smells in the world, it's really just the taste that's off-putting.

6. When you DO drink coffee, it's not coffee. 

It's white as printer paper and has eight teaspoons of sugar in it. Gotta mask that coffee flavor somehow.

To The Girl Who Doesn't Party In College

They are rare, I know.

I know what you all are thinking, she is just writing the article to brag on herself or to show the world the kind of person she is. No, I am writing this article to the girl out there who feels as if she is alone.

Not being a part of the party season is not the most popular thing to do on a college campus.

Most people spend their days thinking about what they will do at night. Life pretty much revolves around the next party. But for people like me, it isn't spent thinking about alcohol or the next party I'm going to attend. And that can get pretty lonely.

It is not like I sit and wallow in my sadness or ever feel like my friends leave me out because I don't drink. I have great friends that support every decision I make.

But, some are not that lucky.

Some girls don't have the support system like me and I am here to tell you to never compromise the person you want to be just because you don't fit in. If you don't want to party, don't give in just because your friends are pressuring you into. Not to sound cliche, but find new friends because they are not your real ones.

Choosing to stay true to you will pay off in the end, and you won't regret it. I promise.

I don't know why you choose to not attend the party scene, but I would be hindering my calling if I didn't tell you why I don't. I know this guy, and his name is Jesus. He is my best friend and the person I talk to about everything. It is because of Him that I decided to not party, to set an example for the people around me.

But, I am also not 21. So I don't think, by any means, that me having a margarita when I turn 21 is hurting my reputation or my testimony.

I firmly believe that alcohol isn't a sin when consumed in the right ways. I also don't ever see myself as a partier, 21 or not. Partying is a way of conforming and a way of becoming what this fallen world deems acceptable.

So to the girl who fails to be the typical college partier, I commend you. I look up to you. I respect you. I want you to know how rare you are. You choosing to not party and rise above the college standard is something you will never regret. I don't believe that my college years are boring because of the way I decide to live my life. I wish that I could befriend each and every girl relating to this article.

So, when those Friday nights get boring, remember that you are not alone. You are rising above the standard.

5 Of The Best Spots To Get A Tasty Drink In The Boston Area

Your guide to all things tasty Boston drinks!


In my opinion, places that are worth going to when you need a cool beverage that tastes delicious. I also make a point to go to these spots when I am home during the break!

1. Teado

This is a bubble tea place that resides in Chinatown in Boston. They have an amazing and authentic treat that is so good, and if you have never had bubble tea before you should definitely try it. But if bubble tea isn't your thing they also offer coffee, smoothies, and shakes that are just as good. It is worth the trip into Chinatown even if you can't find parking because it is just that good!

2. P.S. Gourmet

This is a coffee shop in the south of Boston that is a complete game changer if you are a coffee addict. PS Gourmet offers an endless amount of flavored brewed coffees like actually ANY flavor you can imagine they have it. They are also popular for being "Home of the Bucket", the Bucket is the largest size coffee that is easily bigger than anyone's head.

It is always so fun going there and trying a new flavor every time, though I think I have found my favorite, "Turtle Turtle" which tastes exactly like the turtle candies. Again super hard to find parking but it is 100% worth it.

3. Walnut St. Cafe

This is a small coffee shop that is in Lynn, MA. They also have so many different flavors of brewed coffee that are all so good and makes it impossible to choose your favorite. Walnut St. Café is also really fun because they have a really cozy sitting area where you can just chill with your friends. And they also a beautiful outdoor seating area that makes for a great photoshoot spot! This is also my friends and I go to spot when we are on our way home from the beach in the summer because of its right on the way.

4. Monkey King Tea

This is another bubble tea place but it is actually located in my hometown of Malden, MA, so it is very near and dear to my heart. Monkey King Tea has the most creative drinks and all of their staff members even have a signature one that they make and they are all so good.

Monkey King Tea is also known for their "Puffle Cones" which are amazing deserts that that a waffle-like pastry in a cup with ice cream and different topping depending on the one that you order. Monkey King is somewhere where my friends and I spend hours at because it is just such a great environment to chill and to also battle it out in a Jenga match with your friends.

5. MA Dunkin Donuts

I hate to be an obnoxious Bostonian and everything, but I'm going to be. If you are not from the Boston area I guarantee your Dunks ice coffee does not taste the same as ours. There is something about our ice coffee that just makes all the difference in the world. Please if you are ever in Boston but you claim that you are not the biggest Dunks fan just drink one while you're there I promise it will change your life.
