An Open Letter To Starbucks' Drinks

If loving pretty much every drink on the menu is wrong then I don't want to be right.


Dear every drink that has graced the menu of Starbucks,

There's one of you for every mood I'm in -- good or bad, and there's WAY too many of you that I love equally. It's impossible to acknowledge you all individually.

You come in all shapes and sizes and beautiful mixes of colors. You can teach us all that our differences don't take away from our beauty (or deliciousness).

Some of you are pink and some of you are berry-licious. Some of you have a caramel drizzle and some of you are piled high with whipped cream. Some of you even taste just as great with almond milk.

You all never fail to keep me warm on the coldest days and to cool me off on the hottest. Whether it's a little something chocolatey that I'm craving, an immediate shot of caffeine in order to get through the rest of the day or a yummy and refreshing summertime drink that's so snapchattable it hurts, you guys always come through.

If coffee isn't what I'm craving then there's a tea for all my moods that will probably help keep my skin clear, too. Green tea, you have helped me through many breakouts and Medicine Balls might just be the cure to the common cold.

You've kept me awake through every 8 AM lecture and gotten me through all-night study sessions that otherwise wouldn't have happened without you. I've bonded and laughed over you with some of my best friends and quietly sipped you by myself some mornings when I needed alone time.

You've given me something to hold on to in pictures when I otherwise wouldn't know what to do with my hands and given me something to sip so when I'm angry I won't accidentally let anything I'd regret come out of my mouth. You've each been there for me like an old friend, and for that I thank you.

Even if you are sometimes a teeny bit overpriced, you're worth it. To all the drinks at Starbucks, thank you for being YOU, because you rock.

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.
