The graduate advisor emailed me a while ago, asking that I give her my CV in less than two days so she can send it off so I could be considered for some fellowship. Seeing that I haven’t had the particular outlay of CV the committee would like, and I just moved here so my stuff still isn’t organized, I started ripping through my suitcases to find transcripts and what not, and in the process, came across this teabag I got from a hotel. Sweet! Something to drink while I try to come up with a relatively decent CV.

I added milk to this, because actually, I had this while I was staying at the hotel, and I remember it tasted really burnt. It tastes a little better this time. The bergamot isn’t overwhelming but it’s distinctly bergamot. It’s not as burnt as before too. It’s not all that well-rounded though. A little astringent but it’s full-bodied. Eh, I’ve had better Earl Greys, but I’ve had worse too.

I “discovered” a bunch of tea while I was packing for my move 4 months ago. Isn’t it great? It’s like a little reminder to calm down amidst all the madness. Good luck with the CV and the fellowship application!

It IS a great feeling! Like a mini-Christmas.

Thanks, I need all the luck I can get. I’ve been running around like a headless chicken haha. :)
