white cup, green circle, queen in the middle

i wrote in my who am i post that i related myself to coffee in a writing class.
here are a few excerpts from that paper, because in reality coffee and me are essentially the same thing.

"A friend of mine has said, "Once a cheerleader, always a cheerleader" and I feel like it holds true in my life.  Coffee is a lot like a cheerleader too.  Coffee wakes people up, makes them happy, and can always surprise you.  I have been told many times that I have a tendency to make people happy and help them get through their day."

"Like coffee, I am dependable.  I feel good knowing that I can be dependable, but like most people I can slip up.  Coffee can slip up on occasion too.  If you accidentally put too much sugar in it, it tastes bad.  Sometimes, even though I do consider myself loyal and dependable, I make mistakes and am not dependable."

"I feel my life has been filled with excitement just by being myself.  Coffee is coffee, but it definitely keeps life exciting."

"I hope that my life never gets boring, and I sure hope my coffee does not either.  If my coffee was boring, I do not think that I would be able to function in the morning and I think my life would become rather lame as well."

"To make one last statement about who I am:  I compared myself to my favorite drink, coffee--that probably ways something about me as well."

anways i hope you enjoyed that (:

I am sitting at my computer attempting to read a diary for preston to help out with his excessively stressful exam schedule.
it is raining out, typical. since it feels like it should snow
and i am sipping coffee-- a venti white chocolate mocha from Starbucks. duh.

i will also add a dear so-and-so... to my temporary retreat on days like this.

Dear Starbucks,

dependable sipper.
