Thanks for checking in!
Oh man… Coffee, huh?
I remember when I started actually working full time in an office. I remember how I attended meeting and client visits. I remember how I did not like that brown-ish water that they served. I did not like it at all!
I was kind of the laughingstock in office because I didn’t like coffee. I drank a lot of water instead but surely I had to drink coffee when working in an office, right? At least that was what everybody told me.
Any who, I made it through 2 years in that office without drinking coffee.
Then I went back to school and survived another 2 years without coffee. Again, the other students thought I was crazy because I didn’t drink caffeine – you can’t stay awake in school without it apparently.
Years later I moved to Dublin, Ireland and started working for Microsoft. I still didn’t really like coffee but I had started to drink it a little bit – you know, for the social part of it.
But it didn’t take long for me to start drinking it every day. Every morning and also several times during every day. I would simple start of each morning but hitting that on button on the computer followed by one or two cups of coffee to catch up with my colleagues.
Now! Now, I’m drinking it like crazy. Now I can drink it for breakfast, dinner and lunch – and anywhere in between.
I’ve been on a few coffee “dates” with one of my best friends. Simply going to a coffee bar to talk and drink coffee. Paying 5 Euros for a cup of coffee, which I’d never done before. I guess I’m growing up, finally. If you’d asked me 2 years ago if I would ever spent money on coffee and not beer, I would’ve called you crazy!
Coffee < beer.
Yesterday, I even caught myself making a cup of coffee and actually pick up a book instead of turning on Netflix.
Wow, I really have turned 26, haven’t I? Boy’s getting old!
Haha, I think my priorities have just changed a lot the last few years. Even the small things like coffee is something I think about now – I don’t remember the last time I went out to drink with the sole purpose of not being able to walk home.
I did it a few times in Dublin, but I just don’t see the point anymore. Now, cracking a few cold ones with my mates while watching a football game or have a games night is what’s on the agenda. And I actually love it.
We’re all growing up after all.
