In one of my stories I wrote:
A student at Nankai changed this to:
Question: What's the difference between 我去厨房找了饮料喝 and 我去了厨房找饮料喝?
I just want to say something like "I go to the kitchen and get a drink."
As usual, I'm perplexed as to what's going on with 了. I understand they are both the completion 了, so I'd guess that 去了 would imply I've completed going to the kitchen, while 找了 implies my search for a drink is complete. I'm uncertain, so hopefully I can get a clearer mental picture here.
