Hump Day Ramblings

Today was one of those days...


...Where you just want five more minutes of sleep.
...Where your bed is so much warmer then the rest of the house.
...When your alarm goes off you want to throw your phone across the room. 
...When you absolutely positively desperately NEED coffee.


I had early work today at 8 a.m. I know for most people this isn't early, and I am not one to complain, but I usually don't have work until the afternoons everyday. I am usually fine with working more hours, but like I said, today was just one of those days. So I willed myself to get ready (hello, messy bun), and started my walk to work. Oh yeah, I lived down the street from my work so I walk everyday...take that carbon footprint!
But, amongst the drab and dreariness of the morning, there was shining light. You know those things, that can make you smile no matter what? This is one of them...
Starbucks Christmas cup!!!!!
It is Christmas Cup time at Starbucks!! I have been trying to make coffee at home to save some money, but unfortunately my coffee maker decided to kick the bucket a few weeks ago. And, I cannot go to work at 8 a.m. and be perky and peppy without at LEAST one cup of coffee...anyways, I digress. This is why I happened to go into Starbucks today and saw Christmas joy everywhere...

Dear Starbucks,

I know you are the equivalent of "The Man", keepin everyone down int he coffee world, but I still love you. And, nothing makes me happier then a Pumpkin Spice Late and a Christmas cup. It is amazing how a red and white decorated cup can make my day 2727839874 times better. Thank you!

Love,
Caffeine Addict

As if the Christmas joy oozing out of Starbucks wasn't enough. They even had a little inspirational message on their sleeve, and it happened to ring home for me. 
Thank you Starbucks, I think i will share my stories! Blogging has really become a passion of mine, and I seem to have found my niche. My friends and family support me, and really do make me feel that the stories I have to share are "gifts" to them. But, at the end of the day it isn't about having 1 or 100000 followers. It is about sharing your stories, and putting your voice out there because there are people that want to hear it!

Minor Complications with Christmas-y redemption! :)

I agree. Today was one of those days where I just wanted 5 more minutes of sleep. I was running late and by the time I got on my way to school there was a huge traffic jam. So I just turned around and went home and slept until it was time for work. No point in going to class for the last half hour!

I agree, at the end of the day it isn't about how many followers you have, it just matters that you love what you are doing! I came to realize that a while back and have been blogging for myself, not for others anymore :)
