When you can’t stop cracking yourself up before 8 in the morning one of two things is going on.. you are either delusional or you’ve had too much coffee already.. I’m afraid this morning it was probably a combination of both! Haha! 😀
That is probably a good segway into the most exciting thing in my recent life: discovering regular ‘ol coffee! This might sound strange to most people but up until this point in my life (well I’m not THAT old, but you know) I had never drank regular coffee. I have always had a serious sweet tooth and regular coffee was always WAY too bitter for me, so I got by on sugary concoctions from Starbucks, or the instant flavored stuff you dump in milk. In the past year my tastes have been changing a little bit, and while I still love some sweet stuff, some stuff now seems too sweet.
Recently I was so tired one morning and at a friend’s house who was making regular coffee I decided to give it another go, with nearly a fourth of the mug with milk in it no less, but still regular coffee. And I loved it!! Immediately I knew it was time to buy my first coffee pot, which would save me both money and time! This all happened just last week, and I have been making my coffee and mixing it with a bit of milk. Well today I discovered another thing that is now enhancing my coffee experience even more; SUGAR! Haha! I know what you are thinking, “I thought she just said she hasn’t been liking things too sweet,” well you’re totally right but just a half a teaspoon of sugar helps cut down the bitterness a bit and makes it nearly perfect! Now equipped with my coffee pot, and new travel thermos, mornings at work have felt TOTALLY different, in a good way!
I only work Tuesday thru Thursday, and have grad classes on top of that – so by the time I get to Thursday it definitely feels like, and is, essentially, my Friday! This week I worked some extra hours on Monday as well and have been spending tons of extra time on a Statistics project – so I am especially thankful it is Thursday this week!
