I'm A Starbucks Girl Who Loves Dunkin' Coffee, And I'm Not Ashamed

Let me first start off by saying, I usually need any type of caffeine to get me through the day, no matter where it comes from.

I'm A Starbucks Girl Who Loves Dunkin' Coffee, And I'm Not Ashamed
Taylor Dean

Let me first start off by saying, I usually need any type of caffeine to get me through the day, no matter where it comes from. Most days you will see me with my venti berry hibiscus refresher or my venti strawberry açai refresher. Anyone who knows me knows that I cannot get through my day at school without one of these drinks in my hand when the mid-afternoon slump hits. I like coffee, occasionally.

I will be sent into these kicks where I can drink four cups of coffee a day and be fine and then I have those times where I cannot even smell coffee because it sends me into a downward spiral. But I need some sort of caffeine to get me through most days. I also have to say that I like my coffee a specific way, very light and very sweet and I will only occasionally branch out and try other flavorings or drinks.

I am a sucker for the seasonal Starbucks drinks. You will see me with a pumpkin spiced latte in my hand every day from when Starbucks brings them back to when they stop serving them. I also love their peppermint mocha in the winter. I know that sounds so cliché, and it 100% is, but I can't help it. I love my pumpkin spice.

I do like the taste of Dunkin's regular coffee better. It just has a better taste to me than Starbuck's non-flavored drinks. That being said, I like their lattes and other coffee-based drinks. Occasionally I will add vanilla flavoring to a latte or just a regular iced coffee. In both places, I do not like their hot coffee, and I will explain that.

I love my Keurig. I think they are genius and I love that I can make myself coffee without having to make a whole pot, or waste a coffee filter or a lot of coffee. Starbucks and Dunkin' both produce the pods for the Keurig, called k-cups. I love the Dunkin' k-cups. The flavor is just so good and I can make my coffee how I want. For Starbucks, I only like their flavored k-cups. That is not the case with the Dunkin' k-cups though. I own and have owned several of the Starbucks pumpkin spice latte k-cups with the flavor packets. I have tried the french vanilla Dunkin' k-cups but I did not like them.

I am not ashamed of my decision. My taste buds have spoken and I know what I like. Even though I love my fancy Starbucks drinks, I will occasionally have a Dunkin' coffee every now and then. I also can't help it because for holidays and birthdays I will get gift cards for both, so I might as well use them. If I had to settle the debate and pick my absolute favorite, Starbucks would have my heart forever. Yes, I am cliché, and I am not ashamed.

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.
