It seems that I have become a tad bit of a coffee addict since starting at university.
Why this is strange? See, I really did not drink coffee or many hot drinks before university. When I did actually drink a hot drink; it was 9 times out of 10, a nice cup of tea.
But I have decided that my newly formed addiction for coffee, is one habit that I need to correct. I have decided since this is my last semester of university life (well cross fingers and toes that it is); that this is also the semester that I break my coffee habit! Now, don’t get me wrong – I am not saying that the stress of study or university life has pushed me into a reliance of caffeine or caffeinated drinks. Its more likely that I have been hooked into the loyalty card drive. The competitive lust to reach the end of the line to be rewarded with the prize…
When I look in my wallet, at a glance I can see at least 8 – yes you read that correctly EIGHT different cafe coffee loyalty cards! All of which are nearly at the point of another free coffee. For some unknown crazy reason – TEA is not considered “worthy” enough to gain a hole punch towards my reward?
I have decided that one by one – those cards – once they have reached the end (of course LOL) will NOT be replaced with a new one. Slowly I will be down to my last hole punch and last reward. Once that happens – my last reward will pretty much be my last coffee. Well not LAST LAST. But last in my addictive cycle of only purchasing a coffee for the pleasure of working towards a reward. I will still have a coffee out every now and then – but I am sure that I will slowly return to having that nice cup of relaxing tea.
Til tomorrow my friends – I have just enough time to grab a coffee before my next class 😉
