A Satirical Take On The Unicorn Frappucino

Oh God, not another article about the Unicorn Frappucino!

A Satirical Take On The Unicorn Frappucino
Starbucks Melody

By now, you're probably tired of the hundreds of articles written about the short-lived Unicorn Frappucino from Starbucks - especially the taste-test opinion-pieces, so instead of reading a drawn out explanation of the "three Snickers bars' worth" of sugar a literal sugary treat drink has, here are some pros and cons of the now extinct blue-pink drink.

Pro: You get to share stylish, insta-worthy pics of your frap.

Pink, blue, purple, whipped cream, and "magic sugar dust" on top? #Aesthetic, am I right?

Con: You and literally thousands of other people have the same "hot shot" pic on your timeline.

No, no - I'm sure your angled shot of the Unicorn frap looks way better than your friend's. Definitely.

Pro: You'll get a jolt of sugar-fueled energy with just a few sips.

A few seconds after the cool rush of a mild brain freeze wears off, you'll start to feel that wonderful sugar high. Love them sugar highs!

Con: That sugar crash is a cold-hearted b.

"What do you mean you didn't want a pounding headache? I totally thought you did." - your frap

Pro: You have some in-the-know knowledge about a hot-topic conversation item.

"Oh the Unicorn frap? Yeah I've heard of it!" *gets ready to gush about your love of it* "Oh you hated it? Yeah...so did I...totally!" Whoops.

Con: Nobody wants to hear about the Unicorn frap anymore.

Oh, you had the Unicorn frap? So did l i t e r a l l y everyone else.

Pro: You get to indulge in something that's only around for a limited time.

Four years from now when Facebook reminds you of a post On This Day, you'll get to look back fondly on your time with the Unicorn Frappucino and think: "wow, in the past four years, I've really never done anything as incredible as drink that magical drink!"

Con: If you really did enjoy the drink, you won't be able to get it again because it was a limited time offer.

You will have nightmares every time you go to Starbucks, watching your world crash before you as the "Unicorn Frappucino" sign on the menu with a big X over it saying "sorry, no more left" comes down. And then, you'll think of better days, like April 19th, 2017, when the Unicorn frap existed and all was right in the world.

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.
