Why Drinking Coffee Is An Experience

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.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.

I used to regard loneliness as this misshapen emptiness — one that existed for the sole purpose of being temporarily filled by other human beings, ones who we convince ourselves to make some curious, broken, part of us a bit more normal. A bit more whole. As simple as A + B, to evade loneliness, be incessantly social.

Everyone says pumpkin spice is the superior fall flavor, and I mean, I get it. It is a VERY seasonal flavoring (like pumpkin spice in March? I'll pass). However, personally, I like apple more. It's cozy and it reminds me of being a kid again.
