Real talk: Why invest time and money in a significant other when you could invest time and money in Starbucks? Let’s face it, Starbucks is bae and bae is Starbucks. Here’s why…

1. It not only understands when you’re on a diet, but it helps you through it. Can’t have a White Mocha with whipped cream because you’re trying to be in shape for summer? Starbucks created Skinny White Mocha’s, just for YOU.


2. Starbucks speaks Italian and who doesn’t love a good accent? Grande, Venti, Trenta? Italian is the language of love. Or is it French…


4. It doesn’t judge you. Feeling like calling in a cheat day and having that cheese danish with your latte? You go for it. No judgement, just lives to please.


4. It has your back during ALL seasons. Who needs a fall boyfriend? Or a winter boyfriend? Starbucks got you covered during winter, spring, summer, AND fall.


5. If heats things up whenever you want to heat things up. No need to worry about things getting dull. Starbucks can hit you with a cold shaken tea to mix things up, or bring a little heat with a extra foam cappuccino. In the words of T.I., you can get whatever you like.


6. Starbucks is always there for you. Need a buzz at 3:00 AM? It’s got you covered, heck it’ll even do drive-thru so you don’t even have to dress up to meet up.


7. Your friends like Starbucks too. The whole squad is down to catch up with Starbs’ and don’t mind when you stop there first on your way to meet up.

8. Taylor Swift wrote a love song above Starbucks. Or not, but we can pretend… #STARBUCKSLOVERS


9. It always photographs, like, really well. I think it’s time we introduce a new hashtag, #SCS (Starbucks Crush Saturday). Selfies automatically improve when Starbs’ joins the picture.


10. Most importantly It NEVER FORGETS YOUR BIRTHDAY. Every year, you get a gift and a reminder that you are loved. Nothing says love like free coffee.



Peter Gonzalez is 21 years young and is a firm believer that the successful adult is the kid that never fully grew up. He lives on the Central Coast where the only complaint is that he doesn’t get to hit up the beach as often as he’d like. Peter is currently working on getting from his Liberal Arts degree to his Journalism degree so that he can fulfil his dream of becoming the next Ryan Seacrest/Oprah Winfrey media icon. Until then he is balancing academics while working as Barista, which gives him the opportunity to interact with a variety of people and misspelling a great many names along the way. Peter is fascinated with movies from the 1940’s to the present day, with his top 2 being All about Eve and Rear Window. He also fills up his free time with writing, creating soundtracks, taking photos of everything, Taylor Swift, binge watching and learning to cook like the FoodNetwork, but like everything it’s all a work in progress.
