Grab your coffee and get comfy!
How’s your morning going? It may not be morning by you, but it is 8 a.m. as I write this in a Starbucks. Yes, I am being a hipster and having a green tea while working on my new laptop. So… no. This is technically not a coffee date. Let’s call it Tea Time with Alison. 😉
I am currently waiting for Rachel while she is taking finals at school. Poor girl. I am so happy I didn’t have to take finals. As seniors, we get off early so we don’t have to take finals. Win? Win, indeed. I am definitely taking advantage of this time. I know when I get to college that I won’t be able to lounge at a coffee shop while others are taking finals.
If we were at Starbucks together I would ask you… how your day was going. Tell me all about it! How have you been? What can I pray about for you?
I would vent to you about the weather. I am terribly upset with the weather right now. It is the beginning of summer and it is a high of 50º F outside. Yesterday it was freezing rain. I mean, what the heck?
I would tell you that I ordered a green tea. Instead, I got a Jade Citrus Mint tea. I was told that it is a green tea blend. What happened to regular green tea? It is tasty, though.
It has a strong mint flavor while having subtle undertones of citrus. I cannot detect any jade. The tea is smooth and light. I wouldn’t necessarily consider this a green tea, rather it tastes more like a mint tea than anything.
I would tell you that Gus’ birthday was yesterday! He is seven years old. My family and I think that he is going through a midlife crisis because he has been naughty lately. Oh, Gus.
He is a handsome puppy. I am so thankful to have Mr. Gus in my life. He brings me, as well as my mom and sister, so much joy. He gives the best puppy hugs and I look forward to snuggling with him when I get home from school. I am going to miss him when I go off to college.
I would show you my new laptop! It is a graduation present that I got last week. It is a 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I am beyond blessed. I have a hard time fathoming that I have my own personal laptop. It feels surreal and I feel almost guilty. I know that I need it for college, but it feels like a huge luxury.
Rachel’s graduation gift to me was a hard covering for the laptop and a sleeve. Gotta protect the baby, am I right? The color is tiffany blue… as always! I really do feel like a college girl sitting in Starbucks typing away on my laptop.
I would tell you that I am so proud of my students that I am tutoring. They seem to be doing really well during finals. Go them!
Finally, I would give you a hug and tell you to take care and to have a great day.
