The scents and sounds of coffee have always been comfortable constants in my life. My kitchen's tiny coffee pot is always overworking itself to fuel my household's four busybodies. The local Starbucks is the only comfortable hangout spot in my one-square-mile hometown.

I'm very passionate about all of the topics in my college essays-- poetry, feminism, LGBT rights, music, writing, et cetera. The worst thing to do is write about something you aren't really passionate about just to look better for the college.
