I'll take advantage of the fact that no one reads blogs on the weekend to ramble.
I used to be a caffeine addict. I used to buy 2 large iced coffees or energy drinks and bring them to work everyday. At one point, I brought a thermos full of coffee everyday. Then about a year or 2 ago, I found caffeine started doing terrible things to me... chest tightness, heart palpitations, inability to slow my heart rate when trying to sleep. I was also a pack a day smoker back then, and the Dr said I have some anxiety issues. Once I cut those things out, and realized I wasn't going to die everytime I had a panic attack, the situation resolved itself. Panic attacks that I never talk about for some reason.
Cut to modern day. I've been noticing recently my tolerance for caffeine has been increasing. Not that I'm dying to *need* coffee again, but it's nice have a latte once in a while and not be kept up all night.
I can't think of anything witty to transition to the next paragraph.
Has anyone had anyone from their past contact you from long ago, and you get excited to interact with the adult version of them only to find they are *exactly* the same person as they were before, as if wrapped in plastic wrapped and stuck in the freezer for a decade? Yeah. Personal growth, it's a good thing.
