5 Secret Menu Starbucks Drinks From My Roommate, Arguably Starbucks' Biggest Fan

5 off-the-menu Starbucks drinks any inexperienced coffee customer will love

I've never been a coffee girl. Every once in a while I'll indulge in a Dunkin' caramel swirl, or Starbucks cloud macchiato, but it's not every day that you'll find me with a coffee in my hand.

However, I live with Starbucks' number one fan. Yes, I know that is a bold statement. Yes, I'm standing by it.

My roommate Sam goes to Starbucks once a day, sometimes twice if she's in need of more caffeine after work. By now it's safe to say she's tried most of the Starbucks drink menu — so much so that she no longer uses the menu to order.

In our house, it's become routine that if one of my other roommates needs a coffee, and can't figure out what to order, Sam will create a drink for them that never fails to be incredible.

Here's a list of some of her secret concoctions.

1. Venti Iced Coffee with extra ice, no classic syrup, almond milk, sugar-free cinnamon dolce syrup, and caramel drizzle.

This creation is my absolute favorite. It is sweet, but not too sweet, milky but not so much that you feel like you're just drinking coffee milk, and my favorite part - relatively low calorie. So often the best drinks at Starbucks are not worth their overly sugared contents. This drink is the perfect compromise.

2. Triple shot of espresso over ice in a grande cup with pumpkin cream

This drink is a nice alternative to your regular pumpkin spice latte. It'll still provide you with that pumpkin flavor, except this time it'll be accompanied by a big punch of caffeine.

3. Iced Coffee with extra ice and white chocolate mocha sauce

This one is pretty self-explanatory but still extremely good.

If you're really not into drinking coffee but are looking for a new drink:

4. Honey Citrus Mint Tea with light lemonade

For our non-coffee drinkers, this tea/lemonade mix will both quench your thirst, satisfy your sweet tooth, and provide some caffeine.

5. Iced Chai with milk of your choice, and 3 pumps of pumpkin syrup

This drink absolutely screams fall, in the best way possible. Though the chai will provide caffeine, if you're feeling like you need an extra kick, try adding a shot of espresso.

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.

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.
