The Relapse

It’s no secret that I love Starbucks (particularly their caramel macchiatos), just take a look at my blog name, ha! I get a lot of work done there as well, so if you want to rationalize my addiction, it technically pays for itself. Starbucks– however– is not the reason for this post. I have darker, more predatory addiction that I’ve relapsed from. Continue reading “The Relapse”

The Coffee Snob Pt. 2

Good morning! I am happy to report that I finally exchanged my beloved Bella Dots for a new one! While I appreciated the stand in, Mr. Coffee does not hold a candle to my precious. Now that I’ve sipped and savored my caffeinated nectar, I am off to conquer the literary world! I’ll be updating you guys on my 100DayProject today. Happy Thursday!

Why I Love Coffee

Good Morning!

I’m having a slow start and feel exhausted, which is weird because the mornings are generally my time to shine. Have you ever had one of the mornings where you are just so tired that you feel like you can’t comprehend much? That’s me today. Well fortunately I’ve made myself a big ol’ cup of java and hopefully that will get me a kick in the pants to start writing. You know the kind that actually pays the bills, lol. I hope everyone has a great caffeinated morning and a fantastic day! Happy Hump Day!

Treat Receipt Heaven

I make no excuses for my Starbucks addiction. I’m a junkie, and I have no problem admitting that. At least it’s not drugs right? (Though darn near as expensive!) My rationale is that until I’m hitting the corner for my habit, I’m alright. This past month has been the treat receipt promo. It’s where you buy a drink before 2pm and get a grande drink for $2 after 2pm. It’s quite genius because not only are you buying one drink, but you’re going back a second time because you’re getting a deal! I’m aware that I’m spending more money, but as I’ve said about my “sale” habits, they get the best of me. Plus I’m fortunate enough to have some of the coolest baristas around. I suppose it’s common sense to be nice to the person who’s buying a $5 coffee beverage, but they do it so well! I did start brewing coffee at home to try and manage my addiction, but with this promotion going on, all bets are off. Anyway, I’m off to get my morning java so I can get my treat receipt! If this is wrong, then I don’t want to be right! Stay caffeinated, my friends!

Morning Coffee

I am not a morning person, but I am trying to change my ways. So recently I’ve started getting up very early to walk my dog because I live in a place that’s ¬†temperature is comparable to Satan’s butt crack. Even at 4:30am it’s already 80 degrees. Being the caffeinated junkie that I am, brewing coffee in the morning has lessened my Starbucks dependence. Well, only slightly because it’s treat receipt time and I’m a sucker for a deal. Anyway, I take that time to reflect; to get away from all electronic distractions and focus on my deeds for the day. Aside from getting my work duties done, I am really excited to start on my “25 things list”. I’ll admit I haven’t been the most social on my personal time because I’m always around people work-wise. A lot of the time I like to hole up in my apartment with my pup and catch up on IQ-dropping television. But not today! I shall conquer the world and take no prisoners! I’m aiming to have a funny story to share by the end of the day. On that note, I hope everyone has a beautiful Monday and that your day is full of laughter and joy!
