Coffee, coffee. Gotta have my coffee. OMG for the love of coffee. Do you take coffee to be your husband, to have and to hold, for as long as you both shall live? I do.
I'm a coffee lover along with 75% of the population (unreal statistic) and can't express it enough. The taste is not the only thing that keeps me coming back for me, but the amazing ingredient of caffeine helps me get through the days. Without the components within coffee, I don't know how surviving would go. It'd be a pretty rough world out there full of zombies. Possibly a zombie apocalypse starts because coffee goes extinct?! No, let's not think like that.
With my love for coffee and lack of knowing exactly what I want to do in this life, I have the best job that would just make my life complete; opening a coffee shop/cafe.
How awesome would it be to own your own cafe? There are so many things that go into opening your very own coffee shop, they all sound fine to me.
Finding/building the cutest little place.
To find the perfect place may not be the easiest, but you could always just build what you want. A cute little, two story place would be ideal. Nothing big, but room for some tables for people to enjoy their coffee and food, while conversing or doing whatever they may please.
I love finding the perfect interior designs so decorating the place up would be awesome and it would be my own. Comfortable little seating areas to relax, so that definitely means some couches and chairs along with tables. The tones with be earthy with a hint of pastel colors to bring a nice, relaxing mood to the place. As the counter will be downstairs, there will be stairs leading up to a loft with additional seating.
I will make sure to provide some magazines for the readers and free WiFi, well for everyone. There will be music playing throughout, but there will be a way for customers to choose what is playing if they'd like. Upstairs will be a television for customers who would like that for their entertainment. I would also want to eventually have an app for my cafe. I love my Dunkin app and all the awesome deals it includes and would want my customers to experience the same.
Food and drink.
I would serve all coffee based products, brand and such I have no idea, or maybe I'd make my own? We would also serve tea, hot and cold for the tea heads. As for food, pastries of types will be served. I also want to have a few options such as sandwiches for a variety throughout the day.
These are just a few of my ideas for Chelsea's Cafe. Cafe a la Chelsea. Chelsea's coffee and such. The name need's some work. This is my dream and would love it to come true some day.
I was in high school once, and believe me, I remember what it was like. It was always a constant battle between trying to find yourself and trying to find yourself a spot in an "it" crowd so you wouldn't be forgotten. Doing both of these simultaneously is not so easy.
You see, for whatever the reason; whether it was just me being a teenage girl or being insecure, part of me cared whether I was popular or not. Homecoming court, I would have loved that 15 minutes of fame to wear a pretty dress. Now, I have no idea why I gave a shit at all, other than I love getting dolled up.
Back then, something as stupid as being recognized on a court and feeling popular meant more to me than it ever should have. To this day, I still see high school kids making a big deal out of it. Friends and family congratulate them and express how "proud" they are of them. Uhm, for what? For being categorized as popular and getting some votes? Good fucking job on nothing.
Nothing against anyone who has ever been placed on a court or even won something like queen. I know good people who have been categorized as popular and this is not to bring any of them down.
My point is, why are we still holding these contests? Are we just continuing a long on going tradition and see no reason to stop? These contests don't teach young kids a thing about what their adult life will be like in my opinion. Sure, you should be nice to others and social to everybody, but if you aren't, you shouldn't be punished.
This goes hand in hand with some happenings of teenage suicide. How many times do you hear that a child didn't fit in, they felt bullied or alone, which led to such horrifying consequences. I don't think these contests really help in that.
I think we should just forget the whole thing and celebrate ourselves and everyone else. Homecoming is meant to bring alumni back and reunite for the school, not to elect kings and queens. I think we could do without all this extra hassle and stress that is brought onto others because of these events.
so if you're reading, don't sweat not being popular. Love yourself and celebrate who you are and that you've made it this far in this crazy life.
