In bed by 12:00 a.m. and up again at 6:45 a.m. to start another day. The first thing that I do when I get out of bed is go to the kitchen and start my coffee pot. The truth is that I am worthless without my morning cup o’ joe. I feel sluggish and exhausted, but the moment I take that first sip I know that I can get through the rest of the day. Luckily one of the perks of living on campus is that there is coffee everywhere, in the dining halls, in the library (best idea ever) and everywhere in between.
The stuff is honestly a mild form of crack for those like me who can not seem to function without it.
When studying I find coffee to be an absolute necessity if I am truly hoping to get anything done. None of that sweet stuff either, nope, give me a strong cup of black coffee. Monsters and Amps claim to have the same affect as coffee but as an experienced caffeine enthusiast, (a.k.a a college student) I have to argue that they are nothing like coffee. These products give half of the caffeine buzz and contain a ton of sugar.
Now that the seasons are changing and Starbucks has a pumpkin spice or peppermint mocha advertisement on tv every five seconds I have found myself giving in and trying some of the sweet treats. I have to say that the Gingerbread concoction is very good and gives you that nice fall feeling. The point that I am trying to make is that coffee is by far my favorite, and most loyal friend. It has never let me down and has always been there for me when I have needed a boost.
After that morning cup I am invincible, nothing can stop me, and I am a whole new, more kind, person. Coffee gives me wings. Sorry Marilyn you can keep your diamonds, this girl just wants her coffee beans.
