My life has suddenly become very hectic, as i’m preparing for a stupid exam I have to write towards the end of November. I’m consumed by preparing for it, and so have been drinking a lot of tea—both as a coping mechanism and as a reward for having read a given number of pages and such. It does feel odd, though, pairing tea with such an arduous task. I feel as though I never want to associate tea with stressful times in my life, even though I know i’m actually using the tea to de-stress.
So needless to say, these times are calling for the big guns. A few days ago it was cantaloupe and cream (always my first love, and shines as it cools), yesterday it was caramel vanilla assam, and this morning it was this one. I sipped my tea while I read ‘Night Film’ which is an incredibly well-written and suspenseful novel, and I relished the fact that at such an intensely stressful time, I can still enjoy some of my favourite things. I have a tendency to allow some worries to become larger than life in my head, so this test has sort of taken on a life of its own, but I need to remember that it’s all relative: it’s a test. Nothing more and nothing less. Just a test.
aaaahhhhhh..but a very important test!
