8 Thoughts Every Philadelphian Has In Their Local Yuppie Coffee Shop

If you live in the City of Brotherly Love like me, then you're well aware of the "yuppie" coffee shops that are popping up on every corner. If you haven't noticed? Then, well, you're probably a yuppie. Here are some things that every Philadelphian has experienced in their local yuppie coffee shop:

Ordering a drink you can't pronounce and don't really know what it is. 


“Hi, can I get the mochacchino with foam, whip, and coffee?”

Overpaying for. . .everything.


$7.00 for a PSL that tastes like cardboard? I've had it five times this week and it's only Monday!

"We can't make that iced."


When you randomly pick something on the menu because you don't know what any of it is and ask for it iced, but they can't do it because then it would just be "watered down." Okay, can I just get a damn coffee then?

Would you like the Dark, Light, or Mixed Roast?


I would like the coffee roast with the normal bean.

Watching the barista make a drink is like watching an artistic performance. 


I have no idea what's happening but it's beautiful.

"We actually don't have straws." 


True story, one time I went to a coffee shop, a lady asked for straws and got judged for it because she didn't use the sippy cup top.

Or they have paper straws. 


Paper straws are the absolute worst. They immediately become soft and the liquid doesn't even come through. Just pour the drink in my mouth at that point.

Want whip with that? Will never be heard. 


Every drink is artisanal and must not be destroyed with creamer or whipped cream.

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.
