Hey, Guys!

Day 2 of 365 Challenge:

In my earlier post, I wrote about getting accepted into Penn State and all of that good stuff like every other high school senior. What I didn’t tell you was for me to attend PSU, I had to go in undeclared because I could not get into the business program. My grades were the cause of the holdback but I have one goal next fall which is getting the best grades as possible with a shit-ton of help. I don’t care if I have to spend all my days in the library with a tutor or someone helping me organize an outline for a paper; somebody helping me understand the text I just read about in a book. I want to get myself to the point where I can achieve greatness on my own merit. I know, I write about this everytime but It really bothers me, I want to change my ways and this is the only way I know how to. I am not going to enjoy my first two years but If I can somehow get myself through and be able to transfer into Monmouth University. That would be the day I scream “FUCK YES,” I really want to attend there in the fall but I decided since my grades were not well then I would only get a declined letter.


My addiction with Netflix grew in the past few months when I was binging on 13 Reason’s why; that show was sad and gruesome but it portrayed lots of parts of high school, that a lot of seniors see on the daily basis. The show hit home on me very quickly because of the substance in the show. I would wake up 7 am for school but when I am on a Netflix binge, I would wake up at 6 am just to binge on one or two episodes before having to get ready for school.

An Addiction That Cost Alot.  Quitting Nearly impossible 

While traveling abroad last summer to Rome, I got addicted to coffee and espresso. When I tried espresso for the first time; I thought it tasted like shit hated it and said I will never drink this again. Then I tried the latte macchiato the following day and I loved that drink, I got that every day during my three week excursion! Before I left for Rome, I was already addicted to iced coffee my favorite is “Caramel Iced Coffee”. The espresso that I tried first was just straight up in a tiny mug filled with a shot.

The one day that I forgot to pick up coffee before my shift was completely a mistake on my part. Withdrawal effects happened within a couple hours after missing my daily fix for caffeine; when I tell you it was horrible experience, I am personally not lying to anyone it was complete shit.  I did not have any focus, I had one of the worst headaches, I was so moody, socializing with anyone at work was a very hard task. After my shift ended I head straight home and took an advil and slept for two hours, woke up and felt a shit ton better than where I was before. 

This summer one of my goals is to lose my coffee habit before school starts in the fall because not only is it addicting but the amount of money, I spend a month it’s a bit obscene. The one reason why it’s a hinder is because I love the atmosphere of Starbucks and coffee houses and the smell it’s intoxicating. The second reason is because what other drink can I have caramel or hazelnut in it? Without it tasting like complete shit. Third, For me to drop this habit I would have to endure some psychological problems such as headaches and the feeling of needing caffeine to operate during the morning and the afternoon, without having to worry about being tired. 

Sorry about forgetting to upload a new article yesterday, I was helping my sister move into her new apartment. I got home late and I was barely able to drive home last night before switching off with one of my parents at a rest stop. Until next time!
