True Life: I'm Addicted To Coffee

Coffee is my blood type.

True Life: I'm Addicted To Coffee

Before I started college, I never really drank much coffee. Now, I wake up and think about where I am going to get my first cup from. Its like a drug! My day simply has not started until I either brew my first cup of coffee or make a pit stop to buy one. Some people call it a problem, but I just like to think of it as a lifestyle. If you are someone who loves coffee and your days basically revolve around your next cup like mine do, then I'm sure you have experienced one if not all of the following.

1. I have gone out of my way to make sure I get a cup of coffee.

No, actually this isn't my exit at all, but I need coffee first, so I will figure out my real exit later.

2. I have been late to class or an event because coffee.

Hey listen, at least I am here.

3. I have gone out the store to buy milk at 11 p.m. to make a cup.

Because I was craving it, and all the coffee shops were closed.

4. Coffee is my best friend while cramming for exams.

It's OK, Mom—this is only my fifth cup of the day—I'll be fine.

5. It's my lifesaver on that three-hour night drive back to Orlando.

You can guarantee that there is a coffee sitting in my cup holder.

6. Any event that requires me to be up before 9 a.m., I will be walking in with a cup of coffee.

Especially if it's an event that I have to be social. Trust me, you don't want to talk to me before my coffee.

7. On those extra rough days, my coffee calls for a shot of espresso...or five.

This can't be good for my heart.

8. The people at both Dunkin' and Starbucks know my order.

"Actually mama, there is no such thing as a Venti coffee here."

9. There are about 10 empty coffee cups in the back of my car, and even some glass mugs back there.

I'm starting a collection— you never know when you will need one.

10. Mom, all I want for Christmas is new mugs.

Because you can simply never have enough.

11. I have had weeks where I had to choose between my morning coffee or dinner that night because I was so poor.

Coffee won, of course.

12. Oh, it's cold out? That's OK. I still want an iced coffee.

You don't have to understand, sir, just give me my coffee please.

They say you can't buy happiness—but you can buy coffee—and that's close enough for me!

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.
