7 Things Your Go-To Coffee Shop Order Says About You, As Told By My Favorite Barista

If you are a regular at your local coffee shop, this is definitely what your barista is thinking when you order your regular.

7 Things Your Go-To Coffee Shop Order Says About You, As Told By My Favorite Barista

Coffee lovers of the world know this feeling all too well... you get up to the counter, you order your daily coffee, your favorite barista whips it up for you, and you indulge in that first sip. It hits your veins like electricity and if your barista hits it on the ball, you can feel the caffeinated goodness running through your veins.

After you walk away from the counter, ready to tackle your day with your drink, your barista obviously has his or her thoughts about your order and what that says about you. With the help of my favorite barista, I am here to make you aware of some stereotypes you carry based on your coffee order.

1. Black coffee

You're probably a male, probably over the age of 30, and probably have at least one child, if not more. That, or you're heavily counting your calories.

2. Double shot


You're a very on-the-go kinda person. You need your coffee and you need it now.

You probably drink a double shot because you care more about the amount of caffeine you are consuming and how quickly you can consume it than the taste itself.

3. Caramel macchiatos 

This drink is a glorified iced caramel latte. Therefore, if you drink this, you drink it because it's pretty and sounds fancy.

Any real coffee drinker knows not to pay the extra money for the word 'macchiato' and just sticks to the iced caramel lattes.

4. Iced coffee with cream and sugar


With this one, odds are you're either a new coffee drinker, or you couldn't make a decision. Bonus points if you add a flavor, that just makes you a basic B.

5. Sweet cream cold brew

9/10 times, the people who drink this beverage are doing it for the trendy story post they can make once they get into their car.

6. Americano​​

If you drink Americanos, your barista knows you just want a good 'ole bitter caffeinated beverage. This drink is strong, just like the person that drinks it.

These are the kind of people that take no B.S.

7. Anything blended


You actually hate coffee, but you want to pretend that you like it. You also think it's cute when drinks are blended and can tolerate them because they don't really taste like coffee.

Truth be told, my favorite barista is Tasha R. At Coffee Factory in Orlando! She is the brain behind all of these thoughts and makes the best-iced coffee! If you're ever in the Central Florida area, I highly recommend it!

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.
