Are these unicorns free range?

Questions I Have For Starbucks After The Unicorn Frappuccino

The unicorn frappuccino was an eruption of popularity. As soon as I knew it existed it was suddenly everywhere. Including my hand. Now these drinks are gone, and it's left us all with a bitter sweet, no mostly sour mango, taste in our mouths. Now the whip cream mountains and bright blue zig zags are slowly disappearing from our Facebook and Instagram feeds. But you know what isn't disappearing, Starbucks? I still have some burning questions for you.

1. How and what parts of these unicorns were we actually consuming? Their Magic? Ground up unicorn horns from the poachers' black market? Has any part of the process even been FDA approved?

2. Is this "white mocha" really unicorn milk? Do you own secret unicorn farms? Are these unicorns free range?

3. Did the frappuccino have such a short window because you literally ran out of unicorns to use? Thank you, Starbucks, as if unicorns weren't already rare enough. You could have just sold unicorn babies or tickets to see unicorns, and you would have made more money and the world's purest creature would still be alive.

4. Are you planning on making more of these pretty Instagram drinks? What's next? Mermaid Lemonade? Centaur Apple Cider? Kappa Cappuccinos??!

5. Were the unicorns at least being compensated for their labor? Did whatever horrible process you used drain them of energy as well as magic? Were the baristas at least getting extra praise or bonuses from managers? They deserve it.

6. Why were they sour mango flavor? To be honest, a berry flavor that matched the colors would have a-okay by me. I see what you were trying to with the old switcheroo color not matching the fruit, but "magic" doesn't taste like mango. Magic wouldn't taste like anything we recognize. Next time step it up and invent a new flavor.

7. How did you think of such a good idea? I mean from a marketing standpoint, you capitalized on a preexisting social media trend, created a specific new piece for that trend, and then consumers gave you tons of free advertising. Smart move, Starbucks.

8. Was is it hard to extract the unicorn magic, when those who don't believe in unicorns can't even see them? Was is it even harder because, and I'm just guessing here, those who do believe didn't want to extort the unicorns?

9. Please tell me they weren't made with unicorn blood and we're all going to live cursed half lives? Does this rule apply to anyone who didn't know it was an actual unicorn coming up through that green straw?

10. No hate for my barista (see number 5), but if these drinks are so darn magical, why did you still notoriously spell my name wrong?

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
