Always Have Gum, Coffee Drinkers!
I confess that I am an incredibly heavy coffee drinker. What used to be a tiny little habit I do in the morning has now turned into an obsession. I have turned into one of those college students that needs coffee every single morning.
I wake up at 6 am. Then I travel by train from my Bronx apartment to the TriBeCa area of Manhattan, where my classes are being held at. I do my best to be on time at 8:30 in the morning. I need something to give me the boost I need, especially when I'm not eating breakfast. That's how coffee came into the picture. That's not where my obsession with coffee originated. It just accepted a new role in my life now that I'm in college.
Plus, I've always wanted to fulfill this dream of mine when it came to coffee. I used to be jealous of random peoplewho would walk past me with a cup of coffee in their hands. When they're on the way to work, they would always have coffee in their hands.
When I see that, I'm thinking of the scene and dialogue from a random romantic comedy film:
"Oh my gosh! What a day! On the way to work. Good thing I have coffee. Makes me feel confident and important."
Not in a cocky way. In a comedic way.
One of the things I've learned from drinking coffee on a daily basis is the after effects of drinking two to four on a daily basis. Coffee breath. It comes out of nowhere at unexpected times after the first cup of coffee. You might be able to catch it yourself, but often times, people will have to tell you about your breath, which is embarrassing itself.
In order to make sure that something like this ever happens again, always have a stick of gum or mint with you. Have a small pack at all times. You never know when it is time to purify from a heavenly good cup of coffee. Too much of a good thing is never good. Even if it is coffee.
I always have a pack of gum on me. It has truly help during desperate times in class.
