I think my body is confused. I was tired around 4pm so I made some caffeinated coffee because, even though I’m on holiday break, I didn’t want to take a nap. I think it woke me up for a little while. I drank it slowly and three hours later was just finishing up my 16 ounces when I went to my mom’s work with her to pick up the tips she had forgotten. She’s the assistant store manager at a coffee shop so I got my mug refilled and am still drinking it three hours on. I feel jittery and my body feels on the verge of collapse, but my brain is awake and I do not want to sleep.
I’m confused. Caffeine is a strange thing. My body reacts differently to it every time.
I’m not that confused. And here I am still drinking my coffee. I love this stuff. I take it as strong as possible and I even drink decaf when I don’t want the caffeine because I love the flavor. I’m not trying to be some badass, but well…
I have so much Christmas spirit this year it’s ridiculous. Especially considering I’m Jewish and all. Maybe it’s because Chanukah is already over and done for the year, but I just want to celebrate and spread the cheer.
Yesterday while I was running, someone opened their front door, waved, and yelled “Merry Christmas!” to me across the street. I responded in kind and it made me happy to be alive and to be in a place where such friendly people existed. I’m staying at my mom’s apartment for the holidays and there aren’t the best running routes around, but I think I can live with it. 🙂
I am so going to buy a Santa hat and go for a run wearing it on Christmas Day. Hopefully some people will see me and get some joy from it, but I will have a blast no matter what.
Hats are fun, okay? Last week while writing one of my several final papers, I was feeling demotivated so I put on my super-fun Tokidoki baseball cap and everything was better. My birthday is 21 January, you know… 😉
And I will be 20. Finally I will be an adult age. People are always shocked to find out I am only 19 and I feel so young to say it. Most of my friends have complained about turning 20 because they’re “getting old” or it’s “scary” or whatever, but I honestly can’t wait.
One month from today and the world ain’t over!
