Yes. Had two really good cups of java this morning and I'm already deep into lightroom!

Ditto!

Also, I hate Lightroom.  Especially when I'm sped up on coffee.  lol

Have you tried good coffee? Nearly all brands, and especially Starbucks, severely over-roast their beans so that all you taste is roast/burn/char. REAL coffee has actual delicate flavors and notes.

Caffeine does not like me it seems. I've had quality Italian coffee in the past, which was slightly better. I've only ever been able to handle decaf.

After being so stressed out for the past 6 months, and living on like 8 shots of espresso per day since last January, then having getting some weird hormone problems - really weird shit, that I'm way too young and healthy to be dealing with at this age  - as a result of working too much, not sleeping, no time to plan meals or eat well, caffeine overload, and general life stress (for which I apparently have a very low tolerance), I decided to take better care of myself. That's involved cutting back the hours at my day job, shooting again, and switching from coffee to green tea.

I can't say it's been pleasant, but after the first three days, I still hadn't killed anyone yet, so I guess everything's going to be okay.

I actually never liked tea much. It just tastes like water to me, but I'm getting used to it. I still brew it way too strong.

I can go for weeks without coffee, so I'm evidently not addicted.  I just like it.

I do like my tea strong.  I mean, coffee is like tea, technically.  A plant brewed in water.

Less caffeine. I can tolerate the stuff much better.

Although I much prefer green tea to black tea.

I love the Starbucks Very Berry Refreshers. It's got green coffee beans extract. It's kinda like an energy drink except it doesn't fuck me up as much.

Strong green tea is the only way I like it. I prefer loose leaf, the bagged stuff is usually a cheap imitation of what I consider green tea.

Green tea that is steeped for too long tastes bitter because of the tannins. sad

I like loose leaf too, and I like those tea stores that let you make your own blends.

I really like mint teas. They're delicious. All I can say is that I'm glad I never tried smoking cigarettes, because as much as I love caffeine, I'd probably be smoking three packs a day by now.
