10 Thoughts Alabama Students Have While Waiting In The Tut Starbucks Drive-Through Line

"Dear God, I hope I have enough Dining Dollars..."

10 Thoughts Alabama Students Have While Waiting In The Tut Starbucks Drive-Through Line

As if anxiety while being in college isn't enough, everyone knows the anxiety of waiting in the drive-through line for the Tut Starbucks.

With drive-through lines crowding the intersection, students are always lined up, impatient, hungry, and waiting to indulge in their favorite caffeinated drink. While we wait in line, we begin to ponder on millions of things. From what we’re going to order to college things, and even life decisions.

Here are 10 thoughts every student has while waiting in line at the Tut Starbucks.

1. "Is this moving traffic or is this the ACTUAL line for Starbucks?"

That moment when you can't decide whether there is actual moving traffic or you're waiting in line for Starbucks. The confusion gets REAL! The roads are so narrow, who can tell the difference half the time?!

2. "Do I want a hot or iced drink?"

It's a tough decision when you're not sure whether you're feeling warm and cozy or nice an refreshing.

3. "Dear God, I hope I have enough Dining Dollars..."

That moment when you say a little prayer in hopes of having enough Dining Dollars for your favorite drink...

4. "YES!!! My card went through!!!"

Borderline broke girl status...need I say more???

5. "OK, it's 8:30 and class starts at 9:00, I think I have enough time to make it through this line...it's Starbucks for crying out loud."

When you're looking forward to your morning pick-me-up, you will MAKE time to get it... OKURRRR... even if that means being five minutes late... or 10 minutes... 15 minutes???

6. "Please sweet baby Jesus, don't let them be out of Almond/Soy/Coconut Milk."

Nothing hurts worse than when you order your signature drink and they're out of your favorite milk alternative. Literally, nothing hurts worse... not even a Brazilian wax...


*Pulls up to the drive-through speaker with the biggest smile in the world*

8. "I know my order was slightly complicated, but I hope they get it right..."

Additions, substitutions, things you want to take out... it's all a part of the ordering process. We just have to cross our fingers and hope they get the order right.

9. "Is that my drink?? Ooooo it looks so goooooood."

A little bit of whipped cream here, maybe a little caramel drizzle there. Whatever your toppings may be, nothing warms your heart more than seeing your drink near completion.

10. "Crap... I'm late for class, but you know what... waiting in the Tut Starbucks line was worth it."

Can you relate to some of these thoughts? What are some additional thoughts that you have while waiting for your Starbucks?? Comment below!

Sip on, Sis!!!

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.
