ABC News

There are so many things that people want in life; happiness, joy, energy, lots and lots of smiles daily. Perhaps this is actually just the description of how you feel every time you get that perfect drink from Starbucks, whether it's a tea, latte or coffee, it warms your heart. This my friends is the beginning of an obsession.

So how do you know you are obsessed with Starbucks?

1. You get up extra early in the morning just so you can make it to Starbucks before your morning class or work.

It might mean setting the alarm 15 minutes earlier, but boy, is it worth it.

2. You crave it almost every morning as well.

It is a necessity and without it, functioning just doesn't seem likely.

3. You have your "normal" drink already on your mind when you walk in the doors.

(No matter how complicated it may be.)

4. The workers may even start to recognize you.

Or even better, remember your name!

5. You reward yourself with that latte that you've been dying to try.

Because hey, you studied a solid five minutes! That deserves something!

6. You're a Starbucks Gold member.

And if you aren't yet, you definitely could have been if you had actually been keeping track of your purchases.

7. Other coffee shops are nice and all, but they just can't seem to compare to Starbucks for you.

Nice try, Dunkin'.

8. You sometimes get strange looks of disapproval upon arrival.

People may start to look at you weird because they feel like you were just there an hour ago; and then they realize that you actually were there an hour ago.

9. Starbucks is your go-to homework/study spot, it's just something about the atmosphere.

Who needs libraries?

10. You might even know a couple of the drinks on the "Secret Menu."

But you also may be too scared to order them because you don't want to piss the baristas off.

11. If you haven't had coffee in a couple of days, you have withdrawal.

Paired with a disinterest in anything else.

12. Your drink has probably been on your Instagram or Snapchat more than once.

Who doesn't love to brag?

13. You've come to enjoy the random spellings of your name that you've received.

At least they tried.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
