I need to go to Starbucks and not just because I am under the influence of the latte effect. I need to go to Starbucks and not because I suddenly won the lottery.

I need to go because I won some gift cards a few months ago and I have not been using them. I love coffee and while I do not want to spend my own money on the very expensive coffee at Starbucks I can certainly spend the gift cards that I won.


I feel like I need some coffee especially at this time since it has been getting really cold lately and I am also not sleeping as well with the demands of work and school. I do not want to let that  money go to waste because it was free to me and it would be a shame.

I think one of the biggest issues is simply finding the time to go to Starbucks to actually use the card. There is a Starbucks on campus in the food court, but they do not accept the gift cards so I have to go to a stand alone store to use it. There is a Starbucks a few blocks away from campus but it is on the opposite side of the road on my way to campus. It is on the right side when I am heading home, but at that time I am not thinking about anything but getting home.

I will try to make some time this week to get a couple of ‘free’ cups of coffee so I can use up those gift cards and get something that I really enjoy at the same time!
