Living La Vida Mocha

Greetings fellow coffee lovers! Anyone who knows and loves coffee would have known that yesterday was national coffee day. Yes, I know I’m a day late but let’s just go with it, please?

Whether you’re an Americano admirer or a Latte lover, coffee posses the charming quality to make us nicer people. It transforms us from grumpy procrastinators into energetic and decent contributing members of society. Being a recent coffee convert myself, I’m only just beginning to be exposed to the world of infinite possibility. Here is why think coffee is so damn amazing.

  1. It’s my new alternative to Red Bull
    As a student, energy and sleep is hard to come by. How did I tackle my sleep deprivation and lack of motivation? Red Bull!! I have for years been an avid supporter of the small cans of energy. Yet, I figured drinking more than three a day was a little more than unhealthy. I don’t feel as bad for guzzling a few coffees before a lecture instead of the fizziness of Red Bull.
  2. I can actually go out for Coffee
    The clichè phrase of going out for coffee actually applies to me now! I’m no longer that person who orders a tea or a diet coke. I’m now a part of the coffee club, being offered chocolate sprinkles and marshmallows. It does not get much better than that!
  3. It gets me through late shifts and long reading sessions
    Working evenings and late nights does get a little tense. Thankfully a mocha and a 5 minute sit down usually gives me the energy I need to get through an 8-hour night shift. I rely on coffee for reading too. When words start to become a blur on the page I know it’s time for a coffee. After that I can whiz through the whole book in a day!

4. It gives me an excuse to buy and use more mugs
          I’m a sucker for cute mugs.
Coffee is life. For those who haven’t been exposed to that caffeine lifestyle, coffee probably isn’t a necessity. For me, and many others, it’s the difference between being a happy human and an unsociable mess.

So if you’ll excuse me, I need to have my next dose…
