So once upon a time, I learned about how soda was bad for you and the environment for a multitude of reasons. There was the high fructose corn syrup, there was the manufacturing of the soda, there are lots and lots of reasons.
So I quit soda. Mind you, at the time, I was working in an office where there was abundant soda located in a fridge next to my desk. But I quit fairly successfully, only occasionally resorting to a Jones soda. Mmmm Jones.
Then I came to school.
I now drink soda every day.
It's funny how bad habits are hard to break, and easy to fall back into.
As my exams approach, I feel like I am breaking down, physically and mentally. My brain is over-taxed. I have tendinitis in my wrist. My room looks like it's been hit by an 8.0 earthquake.
And somehow, the only way I've managed to cope is through copious amounts of chocolate and caffeine administered at regular intervals.
I know there's got to be a healthier and better way. But is there a healthier way that also involves no time preparation?
What do you do when you're jammed to the wall, stressed, and literally cannot take 20 minutes out of your day without feeling guilty? How do you cope?
