I'm starting to understand my caffeine limits a lot better, trying to figure out how much coffee is too much for me. It's 4.40am, I had a cup of coffee at lunch, and an espresso after dinner (cos Cambridge formal, that's just the way things go after dinner) and I just can't sleep. Wasn't really minding much earlier, cos I was trying to finish an essay for tomorrow morning. But I've been trying to sleep for about an hour now, to no avail. Mind is just thinking about all the work I need to do and when I need to do them by and what I should pack to bring home and all that stuff.
From friday to saturday, the Catholic chaplaincy had a 24 hour adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and hoped to have people present through the night. I signed up for a slot at 330am, cos I figured I could prob just stay up and do my work till then. Which I did, a cup of coffee at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I didn't yawn even at 4am. Slept at 5am, and woke up at 9am still. Made up for the lost sleep a bit the next day.
I also found out recently that there is such a thing as caffeine pills. So like, instead of drinking coffee, you just take those pills. Sounds a bit scary to me, I don't like pills, and anyway I like the smell and taste of coffee, so I doubt I'll ever try those caffeine pills.
One of my friends has an awesome blog on coffee, should check it out: https://beforethebean.wordpress.com/
Also, feeling a lot more optimistic about meeting deadlines and possibly even being able to enjoy the last week in Cambridge! Depending on how project goes...
I'm a Nature-lover, aspiring conservationist, and wannabe traveller in search of outdoor adventure.
My interests vary from conservation to education to heritage to Nature (biodiversity & wildlife) to outdoor activities to life in general.
They occupy most of my waking moment.
