You know that feeling when you’re finally ready to buy something after much consideration?

Yeah, me too. I just spent at least two weeks trying to pick out a bathing suit (and of course other articles of clothing that I don’t want to live without) and I was ready to purchase them. As I was going through my shopping cart one last time I thought that I was making a wonderful choice; two bathing suits, a romper and a new sweatshirt that was too cute to pass up (it was also on sale).

I press the “purchase” button and it takes me to a site maintenance page and I cried inside a little bit. I reloaded the page (thus emptying my cart) and still nothing. Now I’m going to sit here until the page loads and I can buy these items without hesitation.

I want/ need new clothes and I will get them.

Cheers to the ones who sit in silence during website page maintenance.


Five study spaces at Oklahoma State University you don’t know about

Finals Week is upon us, and cramming for exams is at the forefront of our minds. Here are five quiet study spaces on campus for those last night study sessions:

1. The Alumni Center not only has a designated area for students to study in but also an enormous amount of space and comfortable chairs. Just make sure you don’t fall sleep while studying, and you can get a lot done.

2. Willard Library is located, you guessed it, in the basement of Willard Hall. It’s quiet and unknown to the majority of students.

3. The second floor of the Kerr Agriculture and Food building is located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Farm Road and Monroe. It’s historical, bright and essentially uninhabited.

4. Linguetti’s Dining Room, during lunch time, is connected by a half-wall and is fairly empty and roomy. It has tons of tables and chairs for you to spread out your books and notes.

5. If you live in Bennett Hall or have access to it, there is a large dining room by Fast Break that I have never seen anyone in. It didn’t look ideal for studying necessarily, because the lighting was dark. But if that doesn’t bother you, it’s a great space to occupy.

10 highly caffeinated coffee drinks in Stillwater

Coffee is the perfect caffeine drive that gets us going. It helps us concentrate, gives us motivation and relieves migraines.

Here are 10 coffee drinks with caffeine kicks you can find in Stillwater, OK to help you make it through finals week.

10. The glass jars of Starbucks coffee-flavored Frappuccino’s are a great migraine reducer. It contains 9.47 mgs of caffeine per fluid ounce. These are sold in most of the convenience stores on campus and around Stillwater.

9. The Granita from The Coffeehouse (519 W. 3rd St.) is another great coffee. Think of it as a coffee-flavored slushy.

8. A White Mocha Frappuccino from Starbucks contains 90mg of caffeine and tastes fantastic. Add vanilla and you can barely taste the coffee, but it still gives you a kick.

7. Try a can of Starbucks DoubleShot. It contains 145mg of caffeine in a single can.

6. A 16oz Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks containss 150mg of caffeine. Steamed milk, vanilla syrup, espresso and dash of caramel is all you need to study for finals.

5. Cinnamon coffee in Café Libro is a great choice; it’s on campus and in the center of the building, where hundreds of students study.

4. The Coffeehouse also has a Caramel Latte that’s tasty and caffeine-packed.

3. Aspen Coffee Downtown (there’s three locations in Stillwater) has a terrific vanilla latte. It sells about 16,000 a year.

2. The Chainana from Aspen Coffee is a frozen chai latte with banana. It’s essentially a banana smoothie with coffee.

1. The Cortado from Aspen Coffee is just espresso and warmed milk, so you know that will keep you awake.

Lemonade. That’s it.

“I was served lemons and I made lemonade,” Hattie White (Rob Bertholf/ Flickr)

We know what lemonade is and what it implies. But what about the real implications? Is Queen Bey singing from the heart and past events or is she creating her own trials and misdeeds for the sake of a good album? She wouldn’t be lying to us at all if she was making this up, she would be an artist telling a story through the medium she likes best and we, as the audience, are could be taking it out of proportion.

The album and visual album are beautiful works of art. The songs tell a story that people, normal people, can relate to. The filmography is incredible, anyone that’s seen it must have watched it multiple times because it’s beautiful and the poetry separating scenes will never get old.

Cheers to Queen Bey slaying us again.
