Tea Makes the Heart Happy

I find out new things about myself all the time. One of the things I've recently discovered is that I'm more creative at night. I can write better papers at night. I have more motivation to blog at night. I edit pictures at night. I pick out my outfits at night. It's strange, but I guess whatever works, works. Haha.

I've been drinking a lot of caffeinated tea in the morning lately, so maybe that's why. Caffeine seems to have a long-lasting effect on my body so although this post is being published during the day, I really wrote it at 1 a.m. and am wide awake. There are other teas that I drink a lot, though, and those aren't caffeinated. You'll see my favorites in a picture below. :D I definitely recommend them. Many thanks to my friend Hampton for introducing me to the one on the right. 

And although I do hate when caffeine keeps me up at night, I LOVE TEA and I can't stop drinking it. Hot tea is my thing lately, for two reasons. One: It tastes good. Two: I made a mug in Crafts (see the unfinished product here) and I can't help but use it every day. I worked incredibly hard, spending about three hours on it, spread across a few days. I wish I had used two colors and accented a different one in the middle, but I still love it. :D

These pictures define what I just wrote. They define my life right now.
