Coffee & Chill

Sometimes you wake up, it’s freezing and raining outside and all you want to do is sit in bed with a warm cup of coffee and lounge all day. However, that’s not the case majority of the time. More often than not, as the days get warmer, you find yourself hustling to get through the day and don’t have time to sit down and let your coffee cool before you begin slowly sipping on it. It’s times like these when you throw some flex and reach for that cup of barista-made iced coffee goodness.

As you take your first sip, you wonder why you never thought about getting coffee on campus before. The convenience and efficiency of getting coffee this quickly is astonishing. Moreover, you question how life can be this good and slowly begin to weigh the pros and the cons.

Pros: You don’t have to get up as early to make coffee, you don’t have to clean your coffee pot, you can get breakfast while you’re on campus

Cons: None!
