I think I’ve discovered the secret to productivity. It’s all the Latte! More on that later though…
Mocha and I walked about 2 1/2 miles through brush and cactus and then headed back home for our respective dinners. Green beans and chow for the dog (yeah, my dog eats her veggies) . . . bean burger and kale chips for the human
Oh. My. Goodness! Those kale chips rocked! 🙂 No really, they did. They were seasoned with fresh grated parmesan, coarse salt, and my new favorite spice, Smoked Paprika. Mmmmm, you really don’t know what you just missed. Anywho, I ended up back at the park to give Mocha walk number 2 and ended up staying a little too long to warrant driving to the coffee shop for my homework. This meant working at home <ominous music plays> This really ended up being a great plan though.
Two Christmases ago I bought myself an espresso machine ($30 on sale at Kohls!). I was so ecstatic about the purchase and the two months after I bought it I used it almost everyday. Then the novelty wore off and I remembered how much less effort pressing the coffeemaker’s “on” button is. My little espresso machine soon turned into a decoration that made it look like I was a thrifty hipster that never goes to Starbucks (yeah right!). Staying at home for homework meant I needed to set up an environment that would allow me to stay focused on my paper. I rearranged the desk a little bit, set up my laptop and computer, and put Mocha’s bed next to the desk so she’d sleep while I work. Then I made me a latte
This one was made with Almond milk and was absolutely delicious. It was made even better in my vintage Donald Duck cup of course 🙂
I finished my paper. Hoorah! This was the perfect end to my day.
Actually stay tuned in the next couple of weeks for a three part post on increasing personal productivity. I need to write a research paper on learning and figured why not? I already started it anyway.
Hope you all had a great day!
