Shot in the Dark

Patricia Schiotis on Thursday, 08 October 2009. Posted in Dining, Student Life

Waking up for an 8am class seems impossible.  I roll out of bed, and grab my books and take off to a day full of class and homework.  I shuffle into class, just before the lecture begins.  Time ticks by slowly.  Every second is a painful moment, waiting to be dismissed.  Once I leave my 8am, I hustle to the coffee shop within the Library.  Java Wallys is heaven for the tired college student.  I wait in line, ready to order my normal drink before my 10am class.  A shot in the dark, iced, with no whipped cream.


Once my drink is in hand, I rush to get to my class.  Although I am a few minutes late, it was well worth it.  I will soon consume my entire drink and slowly gain the energy to make it though my 5 hours of class, and the countless hours spent in the library.

    I like your style. Shot in the Dark is my beverage of choice. It sooooo good and gives you that kick that you need, especially in the morning. When it's warmer outside I like to change things up though and order me a Chaplain. But Java's is one of my favorite places on campus.

    I used to get a double shot in the dark with whipped cream before my imaging science class after lunch. Good choice. I now prefer their flavored coffees, all of them are great.
