    CAREER CHOICES - Follow your passion or follow your ability?
    (the topic was once discussed on SEPTEMBER 22, 2016)

    Making a career choice is more than just landing a job. It is a decision that has a huge impact on our lifestyle and the way we achieve our lifetime goals. But how can we decide on a career path when our academic performance suggests an option but we desire otherwise?
    Imagine you make it through four years of college and get your degree; you graduate and get a job in a related field. But years later, you realize it was actually a mistake. What you are doing is not what you actually want to do. You feel bad having to get up each day and go to a job you do not like.
    That scenario is not rare. For many people, it may take years or more to find out what they are good at, and sometimes, their skills and abilities may not equal their interests and passions. That is one reason why many college students change their major halfway through college, and many never do the jobs related to their majors after graduation.
    The fact is that you cannot be successful at something you are not interested in, but if you have no special skill in something you are passionate about, you can be discouraged; your passion can be drained, and it can be another dilemma.

    Coffee

    (07:11:30 AM 16/04/2014)

     Are you coffee drinker?

    How do you take your coffee? Do you take it black, or do you like to add milk or sugarto it? Do you prefer skim milk (milk with no fat), whole milkcream, or half-and-half (half milk, half cream)?

    Drip coffee is popular in the U.S. You brew drip coffee in a coffee machine that uses paper filters (or sometimes wire mesh filters). In other countries, espresso (a stronger drink made with a special machine) is more popular.

    coffee afficionado is someone who's really into finding the best coffee possible. If you're an afficionado, you might do things like buying whole beans and  grinding the beans yourself. You might only buy fair trade beans, which means that the farmers who grew them were treated fairly. You'll also want to pay attention to when the beans wereroasted and how light or dark the roast is.

    When you drink coffee every day, you develop a caffeine habit. You drink it to get your caffeine fix. A lot of people say that they can't function until they've had their morning coffee. If you want the tast of coffee, but don't want to get wired up (the feeling that you get from drinking a lot of caffeine), you can drink decaf instead of regular caffeinatedcoffee.

    For a lot of people, going out to a coffee shop is part of the fun of drinking coffee. Thebarista (a coffee-making specialist) can make you an iced coffee or espresso-based drinks like a cappuccino, which uses foamed milk, or a latté, which uses regular heatedmilk.
