Death before decaf? My year without caffeine

My first and all-time favorite job was working as a barista at a local coffee shop. However this job included two stipulations- 1. I was destined to be a coffee snob forever and 2. I would become addicted to coffee. I could drink two shots of espresso at 9...

The Side Hustle- A love, hate relationship

Our generation is full of entrepreneurs, creators and fellow “side hustlers.” It is encouraging to know this way of life is possible, but it can also be frustrating for those who haven’t hit their big break. If you’re like me, you crave immediate satisfaction and when you don’t see...

Vegetarian Shame
