I am wide awake and it's 2am.
That sounds like the beginning of a love song... or the opposite I suppose. But my alert mind, at this late hour, is not due to some broken heart. Rather, it is the result of homework left undone. I haven't pulled an all-nighter since the beginning of the year and I forgot how much I really enjoy them. Now before you think I am out of my mind, (since that wouldn't be such a crazy assumption, considering the situation) let me explain. I love coffee. Yes, it's true. I am addicted to the Christian's alcohol. (I know, bad joke.) I drink coffee on a very regular basis, but my absolute favorite time to drink it is late at night, when no one is awake and things need to be done. I could be completely tired, but the moment that coffee runs down my throat, the caffeine rushes to my brain, and I am given an extra boost of creative energy. Yes, I said creative. Here is the thing. For some crazy reason, whenever I consume coffee after mid-night, I seem to be in a very happy mood and when I am in a happy mood, I am confident and when I am confident, I get creative. It's a silly process, but it's just grand! I once wrote an entire essay in 10 minutes, 3 pages long and got 100% on it. CRAZY? I think not. Coffee is amazing. I credit all of my good work to it.
Thank you coffee for your addictive and energetic nature! Without it, I would not have finished the majority of the homework I have been given over the past years of my life.
