C is for coffee

Long ago, before graduate school, I used to be a morning person. Not only that, I used to avoid caffeine. Since I’ve rearranged my schedule to have my mornings free for writing, I’m trying to cut caffeine out of my diet so I can get the most out of my time without scheduling my life around Starbucks runs.

The results have not been pretty.

I’m not sure how much is the lack of coffee, how much is my week-long schedule of classes and work from afternoon into the late evening, how much is the ridiculous amount of homework we MFAs have due this semester and how much is just an unrelated emotional crisis, but I’ve been sleeping late, suffering headaches, snarling at people, and, oh yeah, struggling with total writer’s block.

Something’s gotta break soon, and it better not be me.
