Column: Hi! Welcome to Starbucks

By Megan Powell

Hi welcome to Starbucks. What can I get started for you today?

These are the words that can turn a bad day into a somewhat better day in a matter of a few sips.

Even though I probably drink too much coffee, about two to three cups a day, coffee gets me up and ready for the day. What could be better than a pot of coffee? A pot of Starbucks coffee.

From the fall famous Pumpkin Spice Latte to the Red cup favorite of mine filled with Peppermint Mocha, the coffee company is not only there when I need coffee, but also for a quite place to study.

In high school, whenever it was finals week I transformed any Starbucks location into my studious home the week leading up to finals.

The calming music provided an escape for my mind for a minute or two before cramming away again. Already, I have found myself sitting in there for five hours straight working on a paper enjoying a frappé or two.

The one thing that annoys me is when I have a gift card to use and I need to go a bookstore, that’s serves Starbucks drinks keep in mind, but then they say they can not accept my card because they are not a “Starbucks” location. What? It literally says Starbucks on the cups, coffee sleeves and menus. But, okay.

Yes, I have a Starbucks addiction.

As long as I have papers to write and test to study for, I will be at Starbucks once or twice a month.

Yes they are expensive, but they offer a nice place to study, write papers, and enjoy a cup of coffee at the same time. Problem? No.

Thanks a latte for reading.
