Reality Check: I May Be Addicted to Coffee Part 2

Welcome back to this mini-series. First off, I’d like to apologize for not posting this sequel sooner. Here’s a brief recap on the events of March 1, 2009 leading up to this post. I was planning on writing about the crazy weather we had going on that day, since Mother Nature dumped about eight inches of snow on us the previous night and by mid-afternoon on the 10th, it was virtually all gone. However, Sara had already posted on such events before I was able to, so I needed to come up with a different idea. Chris gave me the “brilliant” idea to write about my so-called addiction to Starbucks. Later that afternoon I had a brief conversation with my friend Lindsay about Dancing with the Stars, and decided that I now had to watch the season, being as The Bachelor’s ex-fiancé, Melissa, was now on the show. Then it was off to Starbucks to write my blog entry.

Well, it’s almost two months later that I’m continuing this here series, but I’m again at Starbucks, and again enjoying my favorite drink: a Grande, non-fat, Caramel Macchiato, for here. And yes, they do typically look that delicious and taste just as wonderful.

If you haven’t been keeping up with Dancing with the Stars, you’ll be happy to hear that Melissa is still in the competition and now it the final five, despite having very little time to rehearse her first two dances and not actually being able to perform in this week’s show because of a cracked rib.

Now, on to the moment you have all been waiting for: how did the random events of Jenna’s day inspire her blog topic of choice? During the day, three specific topics came up that I could potentially write about: weather, Starbucks, and reality TV. The topic of weather obviously wasn’t going to happen, so I decided to try to find a way to combine Starbucks and Reality TV into one topic.

“How do these relate?” you ask. Well, when I was younger I made a vow to myself that I would never take part in two things: drinking coffee and watching reality television. It seems as though they have won me over. What happened that I would go back on my word and now enjoy both things so much? Let me assure you that it was not an overnight transformation, but came with some time and convincing.
