thank you, Starbucks, for paying me for 5.5 years to hang out with all my friends, meet cool people, & listen to my favorite music.
also for the last two years of free Spotify premium. also for the caffeine addiction.
for my first love.
for my first heartbreak.
for my first best friend.
for my first college degree.
for the first person who told me "I believe in you". for my favorite window seat.
for the doctor I met in the drive thru that gave me my first job in the medical field.
for the parking lot naps between classes.
for the caffeine that got me through my longest days in scrubs.
but I don't know, mostly, thank you for the years I stumbled along feeling so lost; & I found, in you... no matter where I am in the world, Starbucks will always feel like home.
thanks for being my floatation device.
thanks; for being my Lighthouse.
