Well that about sums it up right?
So as the title says, yes it is true.
Every day when I drink my first sip, I feel guilty. It’s pleasurable though.
(I’m also a vampire addict so this hit the nail on the head!)
Sad? Yeah I know.
Oh it’s not any type of coffee either.
It’s iced coffee.
But not THAT type of ice coffee! Iced coffee alone even with added sugar and milk is gross.
Nope! I’m talking about the sugary, sweetened with syrup coffee you get from none other than Starbucks!
Lately, I’ve been pretty convincing to get people to try the Caramel Macchiato because that’s all I drink!
That and the Caramel Frappuccino or the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frapp.
Yes, you can say it already….I’m a caramel lover! I know, I do. I also love Vanilla….But you can pretty much guess the drinks I get with Vanilla right? 😀
Am I making you want one now? Oops…..
Every time I order one, I think “Why am I doing this to myself? By the time I hit 30, will all of this come slap me in the face? Or rather the gut? But it’s soooooooo good!”
Then this happens and it makes me want more!
Ladies and gentleman, this addiction started in college. I was in my junior year, first semester when I had my first cup.
It was necessary. I didn’t know what I was getting into.
Why didn’t anyone stop me?
Adults drink coffee all the time. I used to see adults in my little adolescent life sipping while reading the paper.
I don’t read the paper, but I sip. Yes I do!
Now I can’t seem to function without it. When I don’t drink coffee, I am super tired. If I have a drink or two, I am buzzing around…..wired for days and then I crash at 4 a.m. Then I complain about my lack of sleep. Then do it all over again.
A vicious cycle that I allow myself to continue because I need coffee to manage my days!
Am I drinking coffee while writing this post?
I wish. Seriously. I have Willow Blonde from Starbucks ready to be brewed right in my room.
But that’s not happening today. Simply because I have the early stages of a cold so I’m drinking Lemon Lift tea!
Stick around for a tea post soon….but let’s give coffee back it’s selfish post now…..
I usually double up my coffee. I don’t get a single shot which is a “tall” (small) because it feels like a steal. You ripping me out of my money for a couple sips at $3-5 a cup. I would rather do a “grande” (medium) or a “venti” (large) to have more for my money.
I usually get iced grandes because they work me up for the day. If it’s been a long night and I know it’s going to be an even longer day, I add a shot to the grande. Which makes it a triple. Yikes!
When I’m feeling happy or just want to treat myself because it’s been a long week or I just choose to have more coffee in a bigger cup, I’ll get a venti.
I add whip cream all the time guys. It’s FREE! 😀 With caramel drizzle too….how could you not love a perfectly prepped flavorful drink? It makes me happy when I receive my Caramel Macchiato with the whip and a lot of caramel drizzle. Then I get the stares. But I don’t care if I am judged because my drink doesn’t judge me.
So coffee has helped me survive many many late nights at the university. It also helped me after those late nights stay up from the 2-3 hours of no sleep that I needed to maintain for classes then a full late night of 5 hours of working at the dining center not getting home til 1:30 a.m. Blahhhhhhhhh!
It was worth it.
In fact, the university is the reason for my addiction to not only coffee itself, but my addiction to the CM! I abbreviated it because it is such a long word to say and I said it like 10 times already haha.
Everyone knows campus coffee is much different from the branded coffee. While it was good, I can’t help but be addicted to the only one thing everyone else is addicted to. *Sigh*
Oh I can also say that the only time you’ll see me in DD is if I need a french vanilla iced coffee and Starbucks is too far.
I can also stay awake from just the coffee smell, with no coffee in my system yet. Is that weird?
Probably. *Head nod*
Can you imagine me on the days when I do not drink coffee?
Sleep. Sleep all day. Lol Just playing!
However, excuse me as that is what I will be doing with my Mother’s Day as I don’t feel well and I am not a mother (not until the long future) so I have no responsibilities! 😛
