Being a college student, I live off coffee most days. After class, I go to the coffee shop on campus and get my usual order, and then I feel like I can actually survive the mountain of homework and studying I have to do. It’s turned into a daily activity although that probably isn’t a good idea. Like I said, I am a poor college student. I can’t really afford daily $5 latte’s, but for some reason I still want one every single day.
I think I can blame my parents for this unfortunate need for coffee. Growing up, it was strange if each of my parents didn’t have a coffee cup within a couple feet of them. Then, my older sisters began drinking coffee and then my brothers did, too. Needless to say I was going to end up drinking coffee at some point in my life. It’s gotten to the point where my friends even comment on how addicted I am to coffee. If I don’t go broke from the online shopping that I do, I am definitely going to go broke because of the coffee I drink.Finals are this week, and I know I am going to use that as an excuse to get coffee everyday. It makes studying just a little bit better to have coffee with me. I’ve been trying to limit myself to the amount of coffee I get a week, but I always end up finding an excuse for why I deserve a cup of coffee. If coffee is what gets me through the day, I’m okay with that. It’s a lot better than some of the addictions I could have. So thank you, Mom and Dad, for getting me hooked on coffee. I’m not sure how I can ever repay you.
