Joey "Deez" Blog "National Coffee Day"

September 29, 2016

Today is national coffee day which means you have an extra reason to wake up and enjoy the best part of the morning, a piping hot cup of Joe. And if you’re as lucky as I am today, you’ll also get to enjoy a tasty treat in the form of a delicious donut. I normally have a pretty hard time waking up in the morning, seeing as it usually around 4am, but that eye opening aroma of a fresh pot of coffee definitely helps me get the legs moving towards the shower early in the day. I’m sure I’m not the only one who likes to wake up this way, but everyone is different and has their own unique way of willing themselves awake in the morning.

 

When I was a kid I used to have 3 different alarms set in the morning to make it to school. The first would wake me up so I could take a shower. The second was to wake me up after I fell asleep from taking the shower. Yes I would literally go back to sleep for about 20 minutes after I showered in the morning; it was the only way I could convince myself to get up during a cold, brisk morning. The third was the longest and loudest alarm, reminding me that if I didn’t leave my house in the next 5 minutes then I would miss my bus, and have to walk miles to school, uphill, and most likely in the rain. This is one of those lessons I wish I hadn’t learned the hard way. But the one thing that kept me going was the promise of an extra-chocolatey chocolate milk when I got to school. Seriously, that stuff can solve any problem. This is definitely one the weirder routines I’ve had, but at the end of the day, it always worked.
