Alright guys it’s time for me to go on a mini break. My finals begin next week! If all goes well, I shall return once the nightmare is over in two weeks! Remember don’t worry, drink lots of chai, tea, coffee, hot cocoa, whatever you need to get through all your projects, papers, exams, final thesis, or life in the next few weeks in general. I leave you guys with some of my favorite musical compositions that you can listen to while you study or just take a break.
There’s a whole album on concentration! Here’s one with beautiful pictures of Venice.
Good Luck guys! See Ya soon 🙂
My tea for the moment: Okay so besides going through the whole finals stress bit, I got sick this week as well. The nasty cold finally caught me! I’ve been coughing up a storm and the three teas that seemed to work on my throat were STASH’s Chamomile caffeine free herbal tea, Lemon Ginger caffeine free herbal tea and Chai White Tea. All with a couple spoons of honey. Of course I didn’t drink all three at once but yes, I did drink them in all in a day. I was basically just trying to fix my self as much as possible before my class and they each seem to have some key ingredient like Chamomile, Lemon, Ginger, Cinnamon etc so I thought hey why not!

I don’t know if you guys heard but today was all about the balloon boy! When I first saw the title I was like oooh a real life “UP” maybe? Ahh that would be so cool! Finally, I would be able to travel around the globe in the cheapest way possible. Okay so it might be a little risky, scary, and perhaps a little too adventurous, hmm…yeah I can see being attacked by birds especially Hitchcock’s “Birds” they were all so creepy, and there is the whole thing with coming into a plane’s way but hey let’s not go there, yikes and what if all the balloons popped!? I mean are helium balloons really durable? And of course am I really qualified as a grumpy old person yet? But then does it really matter? At least they take you up, up and away and you don’t have to worry about checking in or paying fees for your luggage, see what I’m saying (taking a sip of my hot beverage) Ahhh…lovely! Ok so how did I get here, YES! The balloon boy!
So after all that serious thinking I actually read the article and saw the picture of the runaway balloon. Two things, one the balloon boy is really not a balloon boy because guess what? He never even got on the balloon! Whaaat!? Yeah, that’s what I said! He was actually just hiding in the attic because his father had yelled at him earlier. It was his older brother who told the dad that “Falcon” that’s the kids name might have taken a flight! And you can imagine the rest of the horror! But fortunately little Falcon is just fine. And second, this is no “UP” kind of balloon ride! I was so disappointed to see a gray flying saucer looking balloon instead. Really? What is this? Man, I was really hoping to see thousands of colorful balloons with an attached house floating around.
Anyways the good news is little Falcon is out of hiding and his father will try never to yell at him again. Unfortunately on the other hand people are now debating whether or not this whole thing was real or a hoax? I don’t know and I don’t care! But in case you want to hear the whole interview, check out not the balloon boy and his family in an interview in the following link.
My tea for the moment: Lipton‘s Decaffeinated Black Tea. Try it with some milk and sugar or without with a touch of mint. Either way it’s a great black tea for such a brrrr…cold weather!

If you’re one of the cool people who were secretly following the pattern on my calendar and hoping for a blog post on Tuesday and Friday, I really apologize! I had four papers along with two presentations due this week and after lots of overnighters my brain became all mushy and I looked like that zombie dude from my previous post. However, after a day rest, I am back with an awesome zombie question that a friend asked me and now I will ask you!
So here’s the deal friends, what if you and I are together in the zombie world, when I suddenly get bit by a zombie and we both know that I will eventually turn and come after you! So to protect you, I ask you, I WANT YOU TO KILL ME at once! What will you do? Will you kill me before I turn? Say NO and let me bite your head off? Or say YES and finish me off!?
I’m hoping for some fun answers and discussions so don’t be a party pooper and respond!
My original response to my friend was that it doesn’t matter – If I ask you to kill me, I know you will say no, and then we would argue and waste so much time over it that I would turn into a zombie in the process and will eventually come after you! Perhaps the lesson here is that we should all wear a helmet in zombie land to protect our heads from getting chomped off? 🙂
Or we could all take the following quiz to determine the time it would take us to turn into a zombie and go from there!
My tea for the moment: Egyptian Chamomile from Harney & Sons, one of my favorite brands. I went for this particular one because the zombie #2 face above reminded me of all the evil dead in the movie Mummy which then made me look at the word “Egyptian” and go ahhh with all these connections I must drink this! Try it, it doesn’t taste like zombies at all but rather has this fine scent of green apples. 🙂

I know it has been kind of gloomy and raining all weekend long and on top of that today was a Monday! Who likes Monday’s anyways jeez. Well the bad news is that we had to go through it, but the good news is, that it’s over. So just relax, don’t worry! Drink some chai or any beverage of your choice. I’m really looking forward to a Tuesday because they’re always better. They sound more hopeful, less ugly, plus I was born on a Tuesday (I think) so obviously it is a day to celebrate!
Oh great now this is gloomy, according to the wikipedia, there is a Spanish proverb “En martes, ni te cases ni te embarques,” which means “On Tuesday, neither get married nor begin a journey.” Ok that’s just great because it’s too late! I’ve been on this life journey for a very long time and I didn’t even ask for it. My mom says, I was reluctant and resisted this planet but there was only one way and that was out! And as for the topic of marriage, well that’s a whole another ordeal so we’ll just tackle it another day! But hey It’s a lucky day according to Judaism! Yay because according to the first chapter of Genesis “it was good” twice. Not once but twice people! so booyah!
Ah I feel so much better ☺
My tea for the moment: STASH Organic Premium White Tea. It’s really light like a Tuesday and full of antioxidants. Ahh so frefeshing 🙂
