Latte Schmatte.

I have been awake for an hour now. Andy has been helping me in my quest for a 4.0 this semester, and with that is waking me up at 9 every morning to start my mornings well. I woke up with some constant comment tea and cheerios. While I was drinking my tea, I congratulated myself for making it almost an entire week without cafe drinks. I honestly didn't think it was going to be this hard. I am fighting myself every day, probably two or three times a day, to not run down to The Spot, or drive to my beloved Caroline's Coffee for a delicious latte. Coffee is in no way an addiction, it is simply something that warms my body and eases my soul. It's a great way to pause during the day, just to enjoy being where you are. When I'm spending a significant amount of money on a pick-me-up that slowly becomes routine, that's when I know I need a little break.
I'm working on it, and getting better. So far so good.
Today is a day for reviewing pages and pages for Human Sexuality and Abnormal Psychology. It is a day for strumming my guitar, and singing whether or not my voice is super raspy from this cold. I'll eat healthy, I will observe the fasts that I am working on this Lenten season.
...But man would I love a 16oz whole milk latte extra foam right now.

Question of the blog:
Do you have a morning routine? I remember when I was in Chamber choir and woke up at 5:30 in the morning, I would complete half of my routine and then all of a sudden realize I'm awake. Does that ever happen to you?

I envy that you wake up at 9. I wake up at 5.30 every morning and have just enough time to get ready, eat breakfast, and leave for school. Its exhausting. But I'm trying for a 4.0 this semester too so I continually drag myself out of bed to try and get to school on time.
