Alternate title: Things to consider the next time you’re in a coffee shop.

I have now been some form of barista for over a year, and have been a full time one for nearly four months. It’s not all fun and foamy leaf art, however.

“The Problem with False Feminism”- A Response.

So there’s an article circulating around Tumblr right now. It’s this one, about Disney’s new animated film “Frozen.” I will state for the record I have seen this film twice and have already pre-ordered it on iTunes for when it’s released in March.
