What It's Really Like Being A Non-Coffee Drinker

Coffee is not my go-to solution for mornings or any time.

What It's Really Like Being A Non-Coffee Drinker
Work From

"Let's meet at Starbucks!" Is the common phrase spoken whenever meeting with classmates or friends. It seems to always end up being at Starbucks or some similar coffee shop within campus's reach that everyone thinks is a great idea to meet up at.

Luckily they have much more than just coffee, but it's a little awkward when everyone has a powerful cup of caffeine and you're just low key stirring your herbal tea and have your own cake pop (yes, adults can enjoy cake pops with no shame.)

It's also that one time you thought that it was a great idea to try slamming coffee down before your final the night and morning of, only to find out you're about to lose your cool. No one wants to be missing finals, so you suffer through the pain and hope for the best. Hopefully for next time, you'll skip the coffee and rethink a better habit.

The people who swear they can NOT survive without coffee because it's their golden serum are always surprised when you explain that you don't drink coffee in the morning or really, ever. It's like still believing that you can function just fine without coffee, but no matter if you have caffeine or not, you'll will never function 100%. Late night studying and other activities take up most of your precious beauty sleep anyways so just adding coffee into the mix won't fit.

As for when the group brings some Dunkin', it's totally cool to bring big 'ol boxes of joe for everyone. But you can't help but just kind of skip the offer and head straight to the donuts and other snacks provided. Sprinkles, curlers? Heck yes. Dunkin' Donuts has donuts in the name, so who just needs the coffee?!

There's totally no shame if you enjoy your coffee, but for us non-coffee drinkers, we'll have something else to motivate us and find our ways to pull all-nighters.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
