If you haven’t been paying attention, today is National Coffee Day. A slew of local establishments are offering free coffee because they love us.
A little over 8 years ago, I said goodbye to the world of travel and hello to my current office. I also took a pretty significant pay cut to do so, but it was the right decision in so many ways, it doesn’t even matter anymore.
Even though I took a sizable pay cut, I ended up having more money handy because I spent less on shopping to cheer me up, wine to mellow me out after super stressful long days, and coffee to keep me going.
There are a lot of perks to my office now. One of those perks is unlimited elixir of consciousness being available for our consumption. We have something like 14 different kinds to choose from and tea or hot chocolate if you prefer them.
Sure, sometimes I pick up a box of Kahlua (my preferred Friday flavor) or some other flavor if it strikes my fancy. I also bring in my own creamer because I prefer coconut over half and half, but I don’t have to do such things. The dark ambrosia of the gods is here ready, waiting, and willing to pick me up courtesy of work.
