“Every new beginning, comes from some other beginnings’ end” – Semisonic: “Closing Time”
So this morning I woke up to this message on my phone..
… No I did not wake up at 10:00, it was merely the time I thought “hey, maybe I should get a screen caption”…
I can’t believe this chapter in my life is over.. Wow, how cliché did that sound… Seriously though, it’s over! I somehow (idiotically) managed to condense 3 years of college into 2 years. Of course, I could not have done it without a shit ton of help!
I owe a whole lot to green monsters. Mostly for the last year and a half. I never liked energy drinks, I never understood them. Then one day as I was falling asleep in a microeconomics lecture, I look around and I swear, at least 3/4 of the class had an energy drink, then it hit me. I NEED ONE. The next day I went to the convenience store and was overwhelmed with all my options. One of my best friends drinks green monsters, so why not give that a try… Addicted ever since.
Of course green monsters are absolutely wonderful… But early in the morning – say 8:00am classes, or cold days, you just need a Starbucks to wake you up, or to warm you up.
The monsters and the Starbucks are really just a filler until you can get home and drink your sorrows, stress, and everything else away…. And a few shots of tequila never killed anyone.. Although following the Canadian food and drug standard, do not mix alcohol with an energy drink.
I also had some friends which really helped get through all this craziness.
Really though, complaining about going to school with someone who is there with you day after day is definitely a perk. Each of you have the same frustration, stress, and anger towards the same thing… And honestly, how amazing is it to have a friend who will document themselves eating their cheese and crackers on your behalf as your stomach can not handle dairy?…… and for the record. It was not me going on the stripper pole.
Somewhere between all of these addictions and shenanigans, this happened.
