i think i'm the only southerner that hates sweet tea.
but god damn, that shit is vile. it's like melted candy and weak piss mixed together. i'd almost rather drink beer, and everyone knows that beer is the most digusting thing in the world.
i actually have hated every kind of tea i've ever drank, ever. if anyone wants to try and break me of this, feel free. i remember when i first started drinking coffee that i hated it until i found sumatra, and i've learned to love it. i think i might learn to love tea if i just find one that i don't think takes like warmed over ass.
i managed to take a break from my fucking off and actually got half of my work done, i'm proud of myself. this 5 day weekend shit, while sweet on paper, is doing nothing but making me a complete lazy fuck. i have got to take advantage of this schedule and go to the beach a few times this summer or i'll forever hate myself.
i've been listening to motorcade of generosity over and over today. actually, i've been listening to every cake song i have over and over for the past.... week. it puts me where i need to be to design what i'm designing. and i'm finally learning all the words that have eluded me all this time. i'm fuckign in love with jolene, it's become my new favorite cake song. i have no idea what it is about it... it's just ear love.
i've been doing a lot of thinking lately about what's going to happen when i graduate, since that's going to be happening really soon. i feel so helpless because i have no idea what it is that i'm going to do when i do graduate because i've put off thinking about it for so long, and it's coming up pretty fast. i have like, 3 quarters left (yes yes... i know... i was supposed to graduate this quarter... whatever). that's less than a year to get my shit straight and figure out where my life is going to go.
that's an awful lot of pressure. there are a few things i want to do, that i want to do equally badly, and i have to choose between them, and pretty much whatever i choose is going to vastly effect my life.
i'm not ready to have a real life. i love being in college, but to get into the grad school i want, i have to have work experience in my field. stupid being an adult.
i keep dating boys that want me to love beer like they do... and you know, i've really tried... but, buh. it's so fucking disgusting.
i've been forced into drinking tea for the past few days and it seriously makes me want to kill myself. i think i'm going to starbucks as soon as i get some cash to rectify this situation.
I remember that feeling when I was close to graduating from college. No idea what I was going to do, awareness of my lack of experience, self-doubt as to my abilities, wondering if (and why) anybody would hire me. Someone will, though. Just remember that you'll probably have to start small and gain experience and populate your resume. A lot of people (especially the ones that went into IT during the dot com boom) were of the impression that they'd land an $80k job first thing. Unless there's a huge demand in your field that probably won't happen, but eventually you'll get there. Maybe not 80k, but good pay and insurance anyway.
Ok Fuzz... Knowing where I'm from, you should appreciate my knowledge of sweet tea.
Try this: Go to Zaxby's (yes, Zaxby's). When they give you your cup with ice in it, squeeze a couple of lemon wedges into the bottom of it. Then, pour half sweet tea in and half unsweet tea. Stir it up a little with a straw. See what you think.
Most southerners put WAY too much sugar in their tea and/or brew it way too weak. Zaxby's corrects the latter, brewing it long enough for my tastes, but they still fail on my sugar content criterion. By mixing sweet and unsweet, I can usually get it about right. It's the best sweet tea I can find aside from making it at home.
Oh, and for the record, I hated beer all through college. Much like your Sumatra revelation, I found out only in the last couple of years that my hatred was fueled by the fact that I was drinking shitty beer. Try a good pale ale. Flying Dog, Sweetwater (they're Atlanta-based!), and Sierra Nevada all have decent offerings. Avoid any beer you ever see at a frat party or sporting event. Don't take libation advice from people wering ties *and* baseball caps at the same time, nor from those who paint their faces and dance shirtless in their seats. Trust me, neither cares what their alcohol vehicle tastes like, as long as the alcohol gets to its destination.
Urgggh sweet tea! I drink a lot of tea but only as an infusion, or as my mother calls it "a quick dip" - usually its earl grey, onces in the water, around and out so I can still see the bottom of the cup. I hate it when its too strong as I end up with a mouth full of tannin. And as for off-loading a shitload of sugar. *blech*
Anyway... Jolene! YESH! Someone else who fucking loves that song. The live version owns my soul and the twangy awkward studio version is just as good. It seriously makes me want to rock out with my cock out, in fact, I think I'm going to go do that right now.
Oh and yeah, don't worry about post graduation. I was sat in a geography exam once writing something sexy about alluvial planes when the clue stick hit me and I realised the was my final exam. In 30 mins school was over and I had no fucking plan what I was going to do. 15 years later I still don't have a clue but I've got money, an apartment and I'm the sexiest geek in the whole of Scandinavia so I guess live just has a way of working itself out.
Now if you'll excuse me I have some cock rocking to attend to...
I don't know what the water is lfike where you are, but that makes a world of difference in tea. I like a strongly brewed lipton,maybe 1/3rd cup of sugar to the half gallon, mixed with lemonaid, again about a third cup to the half gallorn, mixed together. I drink that whole gallon before the day is up morst times, tho not generally more than twice a week.
Too much caffine turns my kidneys into rocks making sleeping uncomfortable.
you think you're under a lot of stress?
i gradute this quarter,
need money to do that,
job only lets me work 1 or 2 times weeks,
vet bills (ferrets need to go to the vet),
plan a wedding,
pay off my credit cards,
get my credit back up to where it used to be,
and move out of my rents house because as soon as i graduate i no longer have insurance.
agh, i need a coffe IV to get everything done...
