8 Reasons I Drink Black Coffee

1.     I am a college student

Studying is hard. I have lots to do, late nights to stay awake for, and early mornings to jump to.

2.    I am a poor college student.

Cream gets expensive, ya'll.

3.    I am a college student in Ohio.

It's cold.

4.    I like tasting coffee.

Sometimes the rich flavor gets hidden with all the extra stuff you can add to coffee, and I just enjoy coffee on it's own.

5.    It's faster.

Ordering "just a cup of coffee" saves a lot of time in lines at coffee shops. I don't have to wait in the line of specialty drinks. Not that I visit coffee shops much. (see number 2)

6.    It's more filling.

I don't like lattes because I feel like I’m spending money on air, and I’m not big on that. (Also, see number 2 : )

7.    It simplifies my life.

Right now, the fewer extra things I have to think about, the better. In this case, I don't have to think about buying stuff to go in my coffee. (This one is kind of also related to number 2)

8.    The scent of coffee is not very strong to me.

Weird fact about Aly: I have an impaired sense of smell. That being said, strong coffee to someone probably isn't as strong to me.

So, that's my lighter blog post for today. The truth is, I just really love coffee. I hope you had a laugh. How do you take your coffee? Or tea? I thought about blogging about tea, but it would only be three words, "Earl Grey, hot."

  1. I'm a coffee addict and there is just something wonderful about black coffee. The smell is the best, I think.

How to Create a Fact Manual for a Book Series {Peek into My Next Story}

I started my current story, Ideal Lies, last year, and this time, I decided to make it a trilogy. This story is a mix between dystopian and utopian.

I Missed the Only Year of My Life When I Could Sing, "I am sixteen going on seventeen."

Sound of Music has been my favorite movie since I was in kindergarten. My second favorite scenes was the invasion of the Nazi's. Don't ask why? I guess it was foreshadowing to my future history major. My favorite scene is when Liesl sings, "I am sixteen going on seventeen." 
     For years, I waited until I turned sixteen so I could sing that song. I didn't care that the two characters were falling in love. I just wanted to sing the lines, "I am sixteen," with accuracy. 
     Well, today I am seventeen. In the past year, I never got the chance to watch Sound of Music and sing along. This kind of made me sad . . . 
     Until I think back to all the times my sister, MK, sang the songs from The Sound of Music with beauty and grace. She fell in love with the movie just like had, and she doesn't care that she's not sixteen. She just loves music and singing. Listening to her was better than fulfilling a childhood dream.
