a cautionary tale

Having not been blogging regularly all summer, I find myself paralyzed when I actually make an attempt to post. I've started this entry half a dozen different ways, and everytime I've deleted it because it's almost as if I've forgotten that people don't actually care about the words I write, just the pictures. On the bright side, that means I've given myself license to ramble!

I wore this outfit to see The Hobbit one evening with a couple of friends, right before my very first overnight shift at work. I'm clearly amazing at prioritizing. The prospect of being up all night terrified me a little, and I downed an ungodly amount of coffee in an effort to steel myself against inevitably sleepiness. I found out later from a coworker that this is a very very bad idea as the caffeine will prevent you from being able to sleep afterwards, which is even worse if you're working two or three or four overnights in a row. Needless to say, staying up for the next 24 hours taught me my lesson, and since then I've never used caffeine to help me stay awake at work.
