drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA
757 tasting notes

Sorry for the rant, but I’m 99% sure my prof wants me to have a stroke. Every paragraph of this final paper, it’s why this and how so that, expecting me to elaborate on stuff that not a single source even does. Like uh ok, if already a bunch of articles published in scientific journals don’t say why or how, then how am I expected to.

So I need a ray of sunshine in my life, and Pink Passionfruit is just it. Cold-brewed as usual. So bright and fruity, a little tart, and there’s a yummy sparkly note in there too. This kind of flavour profile would make an excellent wine cooler.

this was me yesterday. i’m so sorry. can i send you something to sip the frustration away?

if i don’t get a certain mark then i’m fighting. that;s it. politely, but i’ll challenge it.

OMGsrsly

That is so frustrating! I’m heading home to pack up the Victoria teas, so I’ll be sure to add some stuff in for you. :)

Fjellrev

Aww James, thanks for the concern. How is everything going for you with final papers this term?

So you’ve actually then appealed a grade? If so, did it ever work in your favour? That sounds too scary!

At least I know I’m not crazy or delusional since my brother has a degree in this field and is ridiculously well-read on this stuff, and he thinks she’s being unreasonable and just flat out unrealistic.

Fjellrev

OMGsrsly, you’re too kind. :) Remember if there is anything in my cupboard that catches your fancy, give me a shout and I’ll make sure to leave some aside for you. I need to just say SCREW YOU to academia one of these days and finally get together with the West Coast group for some tea. :)

Incendiare it was a GONG show. 2 months of my life. sincerely committed to this project….. circumstances/timing cut me off 1/4 of the way through my presentation. done. gone. no other chance. it was the last class.

i am the only person that provided data. i debunked HUGE corporation with measurable EMPIRICAL evidence because they refsed to return my phone calls….. so i took them apart from the perspective of my other major: psychology.

i haven’t challenged yet. when i got cut off i followed my poor prof back to his office and did the whole presentation for him. um, i didn’t really ask….. lol.

his feedback? to be more focussed. ???? i was focused. sigh.

if i get a mark that lowers my average in that class (which is 89%) i will challenge.

BAH!

Sil

you know you want to send me your address…. cough

That’s horrible, James. That’s what I hate about time limits on presentations, especially when the project you’re presenting on has 4938203 things to discuss. It’s a paradox because you’re clearly going to have to cut SOME stuff out, and no matter what you choose to cut out you get criticized for it. I’m crossing my fingers for you that you will get the grade you deserve since it sounds like you put a monstrously huge amount of time and effort into this.

I’m crossing my fingers for an A in this course, especially since it’s my last one and I’ve gotten all A’s and A+’s, so I’m hoping to achieve that 4.0 (although grades don’t really matter). Just that this prof admitted to being one of the toughest markers in the department (and takes pride in it), plus told me straight up that she marks me even harder because she’s my thesis supervisor. Lucky me. I have a low A+ going into the final paper but it’s worth 45%, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I get slaughtered and end up with an A-.

And Sil, damnit, YOU WIN. :p

JustJames

you know, sometimes sil just has to win. did she tell you i grabbed a quote from her to finish up my stupid project? when sil wins nice smelling stuff surprises you in the mail… and if she’s nagging it means she’s probably been planning.

i have faith in you incendiare. i’ve been reading your reviews, comments, stories for months. you don’t give up easily. and it’s a compliment if she grades you harder, albeit pesky, lol. oof. let sil spoil you with her magic sil-ometric directional device…. something magical and A producing will arrive. i refuse to drink mine, lol. not until that stupid project mark is confirmed!!!

i think it’s time for christmas break. i feel like i’m about to crack, and tonight i’m feeling tremendously sad which is very unlike me. stress, exams, the passing of an icon (nelson mandela)…. heavy night.

cross your fingers incendiare, BUT…. recognize that it’s only superstition… that the magic comes from you and aaaaaaaaaaaaaall of YOUR hard work. but if crossing your fingers is the fast way to remind yourself of that, cross away….

Sil

James..im glad you’re saving it to spoil yourself just don’t save it too long haha.

OMGsrsly

(I also sent Incendiare tasty and magical A producing treats in the mail, C/O ShayneBear. :) )

Shelley_Lorraine

Can I join the obnoxious paper-comments and end-of-semester stress club too?

JustJames

@Shelley_Lorraine… the more the merrier! lol. what tea are you drinking to recover?

JustJames

okay…. a thought….. i think a new discussion thread needs to start….. one sec.

Fjellrev

Sil is indeed mightily good at spoiling people. That Sil!

Haha James, I don’t actually believe in crossing fingers anyway. I hope you’ll be able to hang in there by the time the holiday break commences. We all need a virtual party once we’re all done with exams and papers.

And please do join in, Shelley! Sorry you’re also a victim to the obnoxiousness. I hope you’ll be done soon! Virtual party is muchly needed, and James’ new thread I think will be a great place for that. :D

David’s has pink passion fruit on web specials right now, in case you wanted 250 grams of it. I am tempted. Summer will be here before you know it! Goji pop is king for me but when there’s no goji pop, this is a pretty close second.

Fjellrev

Thanks for the heads up, Nxtdoor! I almost never check the web specials. That is indeed tempting, and Goji Pop is my other favourite David’s tea for cold brewing.
