About the Coffee Addict

Hello there!

My name is Stacey. I’m a professional student or at least that’s what I’m usually called when I describe what seems like my never ending life in grad school. Graduate school definitely keeps my life interesting and crazy as I never can expect exactly what’s next. Based on the title of this blog the next statement is thus not all that surprising.

Coffee. is. amazing. 😉

I obviously love coffee and am even a bit of a coffee snob as much as my very small bank account will allow anyway. Despite the impression I give, I do not drink coffee every hour of the day, but it is something I enjoy. I can think of so many sweet moments in life which have involved conversations over a cup of coffee. I also just love the café atmosphere with the smell of coffee in the air, the sounds of the machines grinding coffee beans, the fun music in the background, and the groups of people sitting around chatting and laughing while enjoying coffee and cake. I want to somewhat recreate that experience here on this blog. I can’t obviously make you a cup of coffee, but I want my posts to be similar to chatting with a friend over a cup of coffee. I wish to bring warmth and light to a dark world.

Blogging in my opinion is a great way to find perspective and express thoughts, feelings, and humor about life experiences. My purpose is to hopefully share some of the adventures of life, but to always have a point to what I’m saying. I serve a great God, the King of all kings, and it is my desire to always magnify and reflect Him in all that I say and do. Serving and glorifying Him with my life is the true quest of this coffee addict.

I salute you with a nice overflowing cup of coffee and look forward to discussing life’s adventures with you!

The Coffee Addict

Update: From August 26, 2015 to July 8, 2016, my adventures took me to France to teach English in a university for the school year. Many of my posts thus include some of my adventures among the French. I returned and started up my studies again, but as you will see, life has brought along some changes which will lead me in a little different direction than I had originally expected. 🙂

  1. I. Hate. Coffee. But I do like the look of what you’re chatting about! I’m not quite the bilingual sensation you are, I’m taking my level one in continuing education but I love the language and can totally understand wanting to pursue something like that. I also understand the life of a graduate student, having just graduated last December from my M.Ed. I also LOVE travelling and you are so right, who gets the opportunity to just say goodbye to life for weeks at a time. Education is great!
    Oh….and Texas is amazing. I was just there at the end of May, fell in love. Can’t wait to go back 🙂

    • Thank you so much for the kind comment. It’s okay if you don’t care for coffee really. Some of my closest friends and family won’t touch it. The poor dears! I find that there are so many adventures to share and find blogging to often be a good break from the stress of graduate school. So glad you’re reading my blog! 🙂
