There are so many options for higher education out there these days. Some kids got overwhelmed in the fall of Senior Year when they knew colleges were setting deadlines for applications, but not me. When I was considering what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go with my scholarship money from High School I knew I had to pick an academic path that would provide me with a long term career, and I knew it better be a career I could grow in and have options for different work places. After countless late night conversations and research I finally confirmed my choice to go into psychology, it seemed to be destiny to help others and get a better understanding of my own humanity while doing it, not to mention I was wasn’t going to be the starving artist my parents feared!
These days I am thrilled with my career in Psychology, I teach private school and I love it. My professional and personal relationships with other psychologists are deep and always full of wit and satisfaction. Not to mention you can’t pull any psychology tricks over on a Psychologist!
For my family Holiday photo card this year, our matching Christmas t-shirts will be saying something psychology related on them as my daughters are considering this path in their academic futures as well and we want to share it with our loved ones. With the holidays in just a few short weeks and plenty of people still on the gift list, I know I will also be getting a new set of psychology mugs for us and maybe some classic personalized mugs for the extended family. You can’t stop this personalize-everything trend, and I love representing my passions on as much of our stuff as I can.

What could be just as important as a great cup of coffee? It has a handle, makes a great penholder, and comes in an infinity of styles and sizes. It’s the coffee mug, of course, and it can make a delicious cup of coffee taste that much better.
I don’t know about you, but I love coming across a great coffee mug. Maybe it’s the size or color or simplicity of the cup. Sometimes I go for the quirky cup, with an odd slogan or an unusual design.
We all have our favorites. Maybe you found it on a vacation, or at a garage sale, or it was a hand me down from one of your parents. It’s not unusual to have more than one either. I have an entire shelf in my cabinet full of mugs; some have retired while others are just getting broken in.
Coffee mugs also make fantastic gifts for friends/family, teammates, and clients. They’re also a great way to promote your business or organization, by creating a Custom Mug. At Idakoos.com, we have a large variety of mugs with great designs to choose from, and we can also help you create the perfect mug for your company, team, or any occasion.
Coffee. The smell of a freshly brewed cup in your favorite coffee mug swirling in front of you, the jolt of energy you receive after sipping on it. You either love it or you hate it. But no one can argue that it’s a huge thriving industry that keeps expanding.
Coffee has been making its way from cup to mouth for generations. From the campfire to the breakfast table, it has been a tried and true staple that’s not leaving anytime soon.
The Italians love their espresso and have specific times in which they enjoy it. It’s poured to perfection and enjoyed slowly.
In the United States the coffee house environment thrived in the Pacific Northwest 20 yrs before it started spreading like wildfire across the rest of the country. In cities like Portland and Seattle, they have been enjoying espresso beverages from their coffee carts, Victorian Coffee houses and the more modern coffee shops, before trendy became the norm.
One large coffee company has taken the country and world by storm. They are the fast food of coffee. One of the reasons why their business thrived was because they created a comfortable, welcoming environment where their patrons knew they could enjoy a cup of coffee, or an espresso beverage while relaxing and socializing or enjoying free WiFi. They also created an iced blended beverage that was so popular, that many customers were going back every day or twice a day to get their fix. Many locations even have a drive-thru, for those of us who don’t have the time to relax.
Today, specialty coffee shops are on the rise. They offer single brew coffees along with simple espresso beverages. It’s all about the bean and the pour. Some shops offer coffee tastings and classes, kind of looks like we’ve gone full circle.
Maybe you love coffee. Maybe you hate it. Why not express it? Idakoos.com
