    [–] Lonely in a Crowded Campus Vent MiS_Schuey 5 points ago in ucla

    I’m in the same boat. I’m a first-year Transfer and I love my roommates and we’re friends, but I feel like I haven’t really been able to connect with anyone else, even within my social organization and classes/discussions. It seems like all the friendships I have at UCLA are the type where you are friends because you are in the same class or whatever, but that’s it. Luckily, I live close to home where I have an amazing boyfriend and good friends, so I go home every weekend. But during the week, I also get extremely lonely. It’s hard.

    [–] Chai latte procedure MiS_Schuey 5 points ago in starbucks

    It’s still standard. My store told me the same thing (Tarbucks). I made them wrong for six months before I learned that the reason we don’t do it anymore was because the Team Lead that was there over a year ago told all the team members that it tastes better without water (which, of course, is completely subjective). Needless to stay, I now add water and encourage everyone else to also.

    [–] Did you like this? (Iced Cherry mocha) MiS_Schuey 3 points ago in starbucks

    It’s alright. I would never order it on its own. Several of my coworkers think the cherry syrup tastes like cough syrup

    [–] What was the best piece of career advice you got, why was it great, and who said it to you? MiS_Schuey 3 points ago in AskReddit

    My dad likes to tell a story about a guy he knew who only ever wanted to work as a broker at the stock exchange. When he was eighteen, he got hired as a runner, thinking he would constantly be running back and forth and helping the brokers out. Instead, he was fetching coffee almost all the time. Six months later, he told his dad he was going to quit because the job wasn’t going anywhere for him, and his dad told him not to quit. He said that if they were going to make him fetch coffee all day, then to be the best g-damn coffee-runner they’d ever seen. So he went back and threw himself 100% into fetching coffee. For three years. And after those three years, he was promoted to stock broker where he made his career and became rich. All because he decided to be the best at his job that he could possibly be, even though it was only fetching coffee. I’m 21, and I heard that story again last year. Since then, I’ve followed that advice and thrown myself 100% into everything I’ve done. It’s exhausting, but it’s paying off and I can already notice a difference. I’m happier and I’m more successful both in school and at work

    [–] What is the creepiest thing someone you don't know randomly said to you? MiS_Schuey 10 points ago in AskReddit

    If you want, I can marry you to my grandson who is in the oil industry up in Alaska

    [–] Which food did you stubbornly refuse to try for years, only to finally discover that you actually really like it? MiS_Schuey 16 points ago in AskReddit

    This was the same for me! It took me 20 years to try it since most of my family is super anti-fish! Then 6 months later I got food poisoning from a Mexican Hand Roll. It’s been a year and I haven’t been able to go back since. Sushi was a short-lived experience in my life

    [–] Reddit, what are your ridiculous pet peeves? MiS_Schuey 3 points ago in AskReddit

    I’m a barista, and I HATE when customers reach over the counter to grab something. Please just ask. It’s rude, it’s a health violation, and I will literally be more than happy to grab it for you. We don’t want other people sticking their hands in the container full of stoppers, moving it around, and contaminating the whole container before grabbing one. We don’t know where your hands have been, and we have to throw out every single one you touch even if your hands are clean (although I’ve seen many customers do this with visibly dirty hands). ONCE someone did this while we had a health inspector over. She was shocked and we got marked up for it. IT IS BEHIND THE COUNTER FOR A REASON. GO TO THE CONDIMENT BAR FOR EVERYTHING WE WANT YOU TO TOUCH. Sorry for the rant, it is just extremely frustrating. Trying to get my manager to install a glass plane there now, hopefully something comes of it.

    [–] In Europe no one cares about the Super Bowl. Why do Americans have to shove it in our faces? MiS_Schuey 13 points ago in AskReddit

    Are you talking about the World Cup? Soccer is the most watched sport in the world. The Super Bowl/football is watched mostly by Americans. As an American, I believe that it is not only Europeans who talk about the World Cup, and there is definitely a difference between it and the Super Bowl.

    [–] Taken people of Reddit, what are some new things/activities to try when you’re bored while with your significant other? MiS_Schuey 2 points ago in AskReddit

    We saw a show at Red Rocks in Colorado, which was very cool! Nashville is great for the music history if you’re into that! New Orleans was also really cool, we got to see a jazz band play in a historic theater! Also saw a show at the Ryman and went zip lining at Lake Travis in Texas!

    [–] When do you find out if you get a university apartment? MiS_Schuey 1 points ago in ucla

    How do you know if you got a room sign up time, and if you didn’t then does that mean you didn’t get on-campus housing?

    [–] According to you, who is the most badass historical character? MiS_Schuey 6 points ago in AskReddit

    Interesting interpretation! Also want to add that the war for the iron throne was inspired by England’s war of the roses (:

    [–] What has still not been explained by science? MiS_Schuey 3336 points ago in AskReddit

    Why we cry. As far as I know there is no scientific explanation for why droplets of water come out of our eyes when we get sad

    [–] anyone else cringe when they hear “frappe”? MiS_Schuey 9 points ago in starbucks

    This is correct, but this IS Starbucks after all, and it’s called a Frappuccino on our menu. Also it’s true that McDonald’s has mostly taken over frappé as their own. I’d bet that 99% of the people who order a frappé at Starbucks are doing so because they are used to the term from McDonald’s, not because they are trying to use the original term for the drink

    [–] Drink Recommendations? (no caffiene!) MiS_Schuey 2 points ago in starbucks

    Definitely taper down! When I went cold turkey, I found that Advil was useless and not only did I have massive headaches, I was also fatigued all the time and even got chills and shaking at the end. Tapering down is the way to go.

    [–] Mechanics of reddit, what car should people avoid like the plague? MiS_Schuey 10 points ago in AskReddit

    Honda is the best. I have a ‘13 Civic that I’ve had ZERO issues with. Didn’t even have to replace the battery until year 5

    [–] What's the most reliable brand you know? MiS_Schuey 45 points ago * (lasted edited 23 days ago) in AskReddit

    Herschel. I’ve used the same backpack for three years now and had banana guts in there and you can’t even tell; there are no signs of wear. I will have this backpack for the rest of my life

    [–] does it freak anyone else out when a customer calls you by name, even tho you’re wearing a name tag? 😂 MiS_Schuey 7 points ago * (lasted edited 24 days ago) in starbucks

    Why did this get downvoted? I don’t see anything wrong with this):

    EDIT: yay for upvotes

    [–] What's the embarrassing memory you torture yourself with when you can't fall asleep at night? MiS_Schuey 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Yeah, looking back I probably should’ve been concerned but I was more pissed that I had to go out and buy stuff!

    [–] Is there a database with notes for classes? MiS_Schuey 1 points ago in ucla

    I rewrite my notes to look nice and to color-code them anyway so I thought, “Why not?”

    [–] Is there a database with notes for classes? MiS_Schuey 0 points ago in ucla

    They stopped paying us. Now we get a letter of recommendation and a whole lotta crap about being a true bruin🙃🙃🙃

    [–] What's the embarrassing memory you torture yourself with when you can't fall asleep at night? MiS_Schuey 1 points ago in AskReddit

    A couple period stories:

    (Just for reference, I used to have VERY heavy and irregular periods before my doctor put me on birth control. I also rarely got PMS before the pill)

    1. When I was in high school, I had a friend that I would go on hikes with. She once picked me up in the Jeep that she had bought and paid for herself and drove us 40 minutes to this very well-known hike in the canyons near where we live. During the hike, I felt really tired but didn’t equate that with my period coming on. Anyway, we finish the hike and she drives me back, I get out of the car, wave and go inside the house, and I go to the bathroom to pee and notice that the back of my shorts are absolutely soaked in blood. I felt so bad knowing that her passenger seat was also probably soaked in my disgusting period blood! I was so embarrassed that I’ve never reached out to her since then. It’s a shame too, she was a good friend and a good person.

    2. When I was in community college, I worked in a bakery in a grocery store. My boss sent me and a coworker about an hour away for a new training for the weekend and put us up in a hotel. Since my periods were so irregular, I never had any idea when they would come and so didn’t pack any pads or tampons because I wasn’t expecting it. However, flash forward to the second night and I get woken up when my period comes on BAD. I’m talking “sitting on the toilet for hours because the blood won’t stop coming, try to rinse off in the shower and color the whole shower floor red” bad. After about 4 hours of this (it’s now about 3:30 in the morning), I say “Screw it” and go to bed anyway with a towel underneath me, figuring I’ll just dirty the towel and wash myself off in the morning. Bad idea. I wake up in the morning and not only is the towel completely soaked in blood, but so is 3/4 of the bed sheet. It literally looked like someone had been murdered in the bed. I felt awful for the person who had to change my sheets, but when I came back at night (this time with lots of pads and tampons), the sheets were clean and someone had folded clean towels were on the bed. I was really embarrassed when this happened but now I mostly use it to explain to people why doctors need to be able to prescribe birth control/hormone pills to their patients.

    [–] What’s the shittiest city you’ve ever been to? MiS_Schuey 3 points ago in AskReddit

    I went here two summers ago and didn’t notice any of this. The river didn’t smell great but that’s was it. Maybe they’ve cleaned up recently?
