Cup of Joe, Brew, Liquid Energy…COFFEE

Drinking coffee every day has become a way of life for millions of people. Many of us wake up in the morning wishing we could already smell fresh brew floating up from the kitchen. I know I sure do. The brilliant marketing slogan by Dunkin Donuts said it best:

I mean seriously, who thought of this? Give that person an expensive glass of champagne (and a gold medal) because wow…it is perfection.

But what do we really know about this drug, caffeine, that we are putting into our bodies once, twice, or even three times a day? Prior to taking a science course called Drugs, Plants and Hallucinogens, I simply knew that it kept me awake and that was all that mattered. But the class taught me so much about this drug:


Caffeine can help to reduce headache pain because it constricts the blood vessels leading to the brain

Cool, huh? Here’s more information about coffee, caffeine, and the history of both: http://bit.ly/4mmcIu

8:57 a.m. alarm goes off. Since my day conveniently begins at 10 every morning, I make an attempt to wake up at 8:30 and actually put myself together.

We all know that never happens, right? I mean let’s be serious. Who ACTUALLY cares whether I look put together. You got it… no one. My supervisors at work only need us to “dress comfortably” whatever that means. I suppose pajamas would be comfortable but obviously that can’t happen. Regardless, my usual outfit this time of year consists of jeans, a sweater/hoodie, and some sperry’s.

Since I’m super involved on campus, I always have somewhere to go, a meeting to attend, a call to make, or an email to respond to. My life is always on the go. I’m always thinking ahead. But it’s that kind of pressure and adrenaline that I absolutely love. It feeds me and keeps me going. Well that and caffeine.



Luckily, this semester I’m only taking 3 classes, all of which only meet once a week. And since I’m far along in my college career, I had the luxury of taking classes I WANTED to take, not requirements. The other 6 credits are my internship which is paid, pretty well I might add.

Spare time? What is spare time? Kidding. I do have some spare time and unlike most 22-year-old females, I watch a lot of GSN or Game Show Network. Family Feud and The Newlywed Game are my shows. Don’t judge. But I also go to bars, shop (obviously at Forever 21 even though that isn’t true), and cook in my free time.

…Since I’m basically an old, saggy fart, I’m usually asleep on weekdays by 12:30 a.m.


This is much more difficult than I thought it would be. How does one explain who they are in just one blog post?

I suppose it will come over time. Feel free to ask questions of all kinds! I’m pretty much an open book.
