I had an early shift at work yesterday, so I knew I needed an unhealthy amount of coffee to help me get through the day. There are some days that I can get through a morning caffeine free. There are other days where I turn into Lorelai Gilmore and I need several cups right after another. This was supposed to be one of those days. I started it off with a 6am wakeup, and made a caramel cappuccino with my Keurig (I like it because it's convenient). After that, I made my breakfast and my lunch and then got ready for the day. Before I left I made a giant cup that I poured into my M&M travel mug. As I got to work I realized I had left it on the porch. Bah humbug! It got up to 101 degrees outside today. There were no surprises when I made it home and grabbed my cup and it was just as hot as it was when I left eight hours earlier. Don't judge me, but I'm currently drinking the same giant cup as I type this up before bed. When I have coffee at night it has the adverse affect on me, it relaxes me and helps me sleep. My mother is the same way, oddly enough.
I made it into work an hour early so I could have some distraction free writing time with my laptop. I'm currently writing the paranormal story that I've had tucked away in my brain for the last few years. The problem here is that I'm really superstitious, and I believe that if you even dabble in the dark stuff you're opening yourself up to all sorts of bad karma. Also, I'm trying to just write it in the day time, since I've scared myself twice trying to write it at night.
Yesterday was my weekly "catch up on podcasts" day. I usually listen to one on the way to work, but lately, since my schedule has been all over the place, and I had a family emergency that took up an entire week to sort out, I put them aside for the most part. The podcast with my highest priority are as follows:
What podcasts are in your rotation? I might go into town and see a movie today. I'll give my critique on it tomorrow.
