Why Drinking Coffee Is An Experience

Try to think of a better smell to wake you up in the morning.

Like most kids I know I grew up hating coffee – the thought of it was repulsing. How could anyone like something that tasted that bitter? But what really blew my mind was the fact that my grandparents didn’t put any sugar in their coffee. Gross. I now feel guilty for telling them how disgusting that was because it is how I enjoy my daily cup of happiness, but that’s beside the point. These days I might as well have an IV injecting the substance straight into my bloodstream. It’s that bad.

When I first started drinking coffee, I was into all of the fancy drinks, the drinks that don’t really taste like coffee, but imposters. I was already a coffee drinker before I became a Barista at Starbucks, but working around coffee all the time quickly changed my mentality. It took no time for me to be downing espresso shots like they were nothing. I now realize how bad that must have been for me, but I’m just going to ignore that part.

This all leads to the conclusion that I’ve come to - drinking coffee is an experience in itself. Try to think of a better smell to wake you up in the morning. I guarantee you can’t. I like to think of coffee as my reward for getting out of bed in the morning, but maybe that’s just me.

While I am enjoying my cup of coffee, I like to think of it as my time to myself. It is my precious time to wake up and relax before the craziness of the day sets in. I take advantage of that time – even if it’s just the walk to class, at least I have my coffee tumbler by my side. If I don’t have my coffee, I’m useless. I say that jokingly but it’s the sad truth.

Once I’ve finished my cup of joy I feel like a new woman. I feel like I can take on the world and anything is possible, but that’s most likely the caffeine talking.

One thing that really gets to me is when someone tries to speed up my coffee drinking process or better yet, when someone tries to criticize my cup of coffee. I like to take my time and really enjoy my coffee. I didn’t slave over my coffee machine just for you to be rude and interrupt my routine. Better yet, I didn’t just spend $6 for you to not even let me enjoy this wonderful beverage.

Coffee has become such a big part of our culture that it’s almost weird if you don’t drink it. It’s definitely a taste that you acquire over time, but once you’re hooked, there’s no going back. I really don’t understand how one cannot love it, there’s literally so much to love.

So fellow coffee lovers – keep enjoying your cup of Joe and never let anyone tell you to stop drinking so much coffee, because there’s no such thing.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.
