I’m slowly becoming a coffee drinker. VERY SLLLOOOOOWWLLY. I’ve been trying for years. I’m pretty sensitive to caffeine, so I’ve had to build up a tolerance. Just a couple of years ago, if I drank a cup of coffee in the beginning of the day, I’d STILL be up till 5 or 6 am and I’d feel like I was on speed all day/night. Or crack. Or whatever drug makes you feel like everything is happening fast and slow at the same time while you’re brain has turned upside down and your eyeballs are stuck open.
Anyways, I’ve finally found a way to drink a bit of coffee while I work in my studio that is more helpful than hurtful towards my workday.
It’s excruciatingly hot outside right now, so I’m all about iced drinks. Since I get distracted by my work and I’m a sipper, not a gulper, it often takes me awhile to finish a cup. The decaf ice cubes are great because when I start drinking my coffee, it will be fully caffeinated. When I finish my cup, some of the ice has melted and I get more of a halfsies sort of level, which is good because by then I’m probably already slightly jittery.
I told you…..it’s been a slllllow process becoming a coffee drinker.
