As you may have noticed by the presence of people with ashes on their foreheads walking around, today is the first day of lent. This seems as good a time as any to announce that I have the intention of giving up caffeine. I’m just switching to tea until Saturday, where I’m planning on going to decaf.
That was a very disconcerting sentence to write.
But yes, I realized I was actually using Coffee as a mood-altering substance to make myself chatty at work. This is something that freaks me out rather a lot, especially when my interactions with people is something I’m working so very hard on. And well, all my advancing of levels in humanity aren’t worth much if they’re dependent on myself imbibing first, eh?
Also, I’ve realized that i fight hard enough to get over the highs and lows that my own brain throws at me, there’s no need to add artificial lows to the mix.
So I’ve only had one tea today, which is probably why it’s 10:43 and I’m almost falling asleep on my computer.
