I know all I did was install a simple DVD rack that took 4 screws each but something about using a power drill made me feel "manly" and accomplished lol

This whole growing up thing... I don't know if I like it.

On the other hand, my dad and I are going to be flying to Toronto sometime in the next month for a campus tour. He is going down for business so I will be flying over (by myself!) and we will then tour the campus as well as all seven residences.

I have become too emotionally invested in this university already!

I love tea. Lurve it. However, it always gives me a dry mouth feeling. Anyone know why this is?

What kind of tea is it? Do you put anything in it?

Many teas have an "astringent" mouthfeel, so the dry mouth is intentional, at least to some degree. If it bothers you, trying another kind of tea may help.

So lately when my friends ask how I'm doing and I tell them "fine" or "good" or "okay" it's apparently obvious I'm lying.
Reportedly I look perpetually stressed.

I mean obviously I AM perpetually stressed. But I thought I was still convincingly faking it.

Maybe as I've gotten older I've become worse at faking it.

It's cheap stuff.

Sleepytime I think? A few different flavors, some worse than others with the dry mouth. Chamomile being one of the worst, which sucks because I was using that for quite a while to help me get to sleep. I was putting a little bit of honey in the Chamomile, but nothing in the other flavors.

You're welcome

Seriously, though. Order a few sample sizes and see what you've been missing!

I just ordered 5 samples. I've never used loose tea before.. should be interesting.

I also realized I've been doing it ALL wrong. I need to go find myself a decent quality tea kettle now.. Any recommendations on that? I can't really afford an electronic one (though some of these teas have very specific water temps )..

Ever randomly tired for no good reason? I feel asleep by 1:30 last night& slept until 8:30.. that's better than I normally do. Yet, here I am at 4:14 in the afternoon trying to shake myself into waking up. I should make an energy drink exception and go get one..
