Or perhaps I should say bzzt bzzt. In any case, this is such a momentous occasion that it warrants a blog post.
I woke up this morning and realized that I had a package waiting for me in the front office. It actually arrived the other day but the office was closed due to the holiday, curse you holiday! I threw on my clothes and braved the blistering cold wind, and let me tell you, it was worth it. I now have in my possession 6 boxes of Morning Thunder, the bane of fatigue. Here it is in all of its cardboard boxness glory, quite exciting I know.
Why 6 boxes of Morning Thunder you ask? Wegmans has been sold out of this tea for about two months now. I actually had to resort to drinking wheatgrass! Wheatgrass! Yes wheatgrass is healthy, but the taste is a little lacking…unless you like drinking freshly mowed lawn. I am still not convinced of the energy inducing powers that wheatgrass is supposed to have, although I was able to work until 6:00am yesterday after drinking a shot of wheatgrass. I am not sure if that was due to the wheatgrass or my stubbornness to finish my video tutorial…I chalk it up to stubbornness.
The reason I started drinking Morning Thunder in the first place was because I was addicted to energy drinks. I used to drink 1-2 energy drinks per day. I’ve heard of people drinking 8+ in one day, but that is just crazy. Drinking energy drinks made me extremely tired when I wasn’t drinking them, cue zombie mode. Usually the next day I would completely crash, so to remedy that I would drink more energy drinks, thus feeding the vicious cycle. I actually got to the point where I would fall asleep while drinking an energy drink. Call me crazy, but that didn’t seem good. After a few posts on Facebook, Tyler Walpole, a fellow illustrator, told me to use Morning Thunder as a replacement for energy drinks. Morning Thunder is a zero calorie black tea that contains caffeine. How much caffeine does it have? It has less caffeine than Cola. I can drink one cup of Morning Thunder in the morning (:O) and feel awake and refreshed for the entire day. Thank you Morning Thunder, you have saved my life.
