The temperature is getting so cold over here.
That my tea consumption is sky rocketing dangerously.
A cold winters morning can only be tolerated with a nice cup of tasty tea, or "artsy tea" as I like to call it. Normally I don't go for the more favorable teas that come about during the holiday seasons, meaning that I am a plain Jane when it comes to choosing tea. But not this year! This year I have finally tried Trader Joe's vanilla & cinnamon black tea along with harvest blend herbal tea. Both very yummy and slightly sweet (I don't add any sweetener or cream to my teas), due to the apple/ orange flavor that the herbal tea has. Black tea, in my opinion tastes like black coffee with a hint of vanilla, or course it is less bitter, when I sampled it for the first time, I seriously thought I had drank coffee by accident.
Problem is, that being a person who is obsessed with TEMPORARY tea flavors, means that I will have to wait a year till they put it back on the shelves. Course, I'm not doing that, so instead, every time I take a trip to Trader Joe's, I fling a couple of tea boxes into the basket and then stash them like a squirrel in our pantry.
Call it obsessive behavior of tea, but I like to think of the beverage as an inspirational artist fuel. Whether it's playing music, reading, painting or writing, a warm yummy tea is always at my side.
Ok so with college over for a short while. I have had time to think about another important requirement in a young adults life. And that's a job, yep I still don't have a job other than selling a couple pieces of jewelry here and there, but that's barely covering anything. It's not that I'm lazy or anything (which some say that I am), because I have applied to almost every shop, store, cafe and grocery store in my area, and nobody wants to hire me. I'm beginning to think that maybe the issue isn't about them not wanting my help, but more like they just don't want somebody that looks like me working behind their counters. I don't know, could be my hair, face, style of clothing or maybe they just don't like my personality. Whatever it is, I'm getting pretty discouraged.I have looked into working at home kind of jobs, and so far the only thing that I qualify and know a lot about, is artists work (There's also music, but I need more help with that). So I'm thinking about selling some of my paintings online in addition to selling jewelry. Hopefully....hopefully that will help some.
