Cup of Joe, Brew, Liquid Energy…COFFEE

Drinking coffee every day has become a way of life for millions of people. Many of us wake up in the morning wishing we could already smell fresh brew floating up from the kitchen. I know I sure do. The brilliant marketing slogan by Dunkin Donuts said it best:

I mean seriously, who thought of this? Give that person an expensive glass of champagne (and a gold medal) because wow…it is perfection.

But what do we really know about this drug, caffeine, that we are putting into our bodies once, twice, or even three times a day? Prior to taking a science course called Drugs, Plants and Hallucinogens, I simply knew that it kept me awake and that was all that mattered. But the class taught me so much about this drug:


Caffeine can help to reduce headache pain because it constricts the blood vessels leading to the brain

Cool, huh? Here’s more information about coffee, caffeine, and the history of both:

True women’s logic right there. Women are an interesting sex, don’t you think? We think we know what we want, but we have no idea. And therefore, it is someone else’s fault.

I’m not backing up my own sex, here. I am fully aware that this is ridiculous and I’m not going to apologize for being honest. At least I can defend myself for being honest.

The “rules” and “etiquette” that exist (in many young girls’ minds) between a man and a woman who may be interested in one another is a dark abyss of wrong moves and awkward silences. So instead of communicating, many girls get upset and assume the worst. “He doesn’t like me!” or “He never says the right thing” are great examples of responses.

I found this meme on knowyourmeme. This site lists the origin of this strand of memes called Women’s Logic and says “Women Logic (also known as “Female Logic”) is a term primarily used by men to describe a range of behaviors and thought processes that would be seen as distinctly feminine.” …which is basically just saying “women are freaking crazy, let’s make fun of them.” I guess I don’t hate it. I can laugh at myself.

In Taylor Swift’s song “22” she sings “We’re happy free confused and lonely at the same time
It’s miserable and magical oh yeah.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.

So you like my 22-year-old existence, do ya? That’s awesome! I’m glad that my shenanigans can provide you with some sort of entertainment. Cool beans. Maybe these shenanigans can benefit other people you know who might take comfort in knowing that their struggles are similar to mine or to people who are trying to understand their peers or maybe to a guy who wants to understand women better.
