Since I've been back on night shifts I sleep roughly 4 hours, get up, have a full day and then work another night, repeat.
I wouldn't be able to stay awake if it weren't for energy drinks. I start at midnight, so it's an awkward shift, you can't sleep beforehand so it's a stay up, sleep in the morning jobby which I can't do, I'm an early bird and I never nap.
Still can't do coffee even though I love it, bloody migraines.
I have 2 caffeinated drinks per day on average. About 80% of my caffeine intake comes from coffee and the rest from Red Bull. I don't drink Coke.
I crave a coffee when I have lectures early in the morning, and I feel like I can focus better on things such as essay writing and revising after I've had a cup of coffee. Most of the time I buy a take-away coffee from Costa/Nero/Starbucks, but I have a cafetiere in my student accommodation which I sometimes use to make fresh coffee. It tastes quite watery though though, no idea what I'm doing wrong. We have a Nespresso machine at my parents' house, which I really like. I usually use 2 capsules per cup which makes the taste even more intense and rich. As soon as I get my own flat (probably in September) I will invest in a proper DeLonghi coffee bean grinding espresso machine.
My friend POURS sugar from the bag, like 6 spoons worth in one cup...what the ACTUAL f? He thinks it tastes boring without Its a bitter drink thats the point! If you can't handle the bitterness your tastebuds aren't mature enough to drink tea/coffee.
I can't even watch people putting sugar in their drinks.
I forgot how much I love it. I went to starbucks for their free coffee the other day and really really really enjoyed it. So much that I bought a coffee machine today and a big bag of ground coffee. Hell yeah!
