Morning without coffee is a waste

I don’t like tea. I like coffee. A morning without it is a waste. If I don’t drink something with caffeine I feel tired all day. Now when I have to wake up early twice a month to go to school, I don’t drink coffee at home. Those days I only drink coffee from a machine. It’s not the best though. That’s better than nothing. Drinking coffee without milk and sugar taste like poison in my mouth. I once had to drink it straight up because I didn’t have milk and it’s the worst taste ever. If there isn’t coffee I drink Finnish energy drink called Battery. I hate Red Bull and any other I tasted. Nothing beats coffee though.

I only drink two cups per day. Sometimes three if someone offers. Other times not. Since I stopped drinking soda, water, milk, chocolate milk and juices are the only drinks I drink. The best coffee it’s the one you make yourself. I’m quite good at it I might add. You get it the way you what it. I also have instant coffee but that’s not as good as the one you make in a coffee maker. I only drink instant if I live in a dorm like I did when I studied web design or it’s too late to make coffee. Those are days when I sleep too long. That’s not that often though. Most of the time I drink coffee after I wake up.

I don’t go to coffee houses. I’m not one of those people who sit in a café and sit there for hours. I like my coffee at home. Sometimes I can go to one but that’s really rare. Last time I went was with my dad was when we went to a shopping centre. I don’t really remember when exactly. Coffee is nothing if you don’t eat anything with it. It’s usually something sweet. The sweet tooth that I am. Except if it’s morning it’s a sandwich. I don’t drink coffee just the hell of it. I do it for a reason. If I don’t drink coffee I get a headache. Tea is the last drink I would drink so don’t offer me one. If it’s coffee then I’m all, got milk? I wouldn’t say no to a cup of great coffee.

Rain is gold

The rain finally came after a long heatwave period. Rain is gold when it’s been hot for so long. It’s really refreshing. I was out in the rain when it came pouring down, twice. Of course, I had an umbrella and wellies on but I still got wet. I went out when it started raining so I was well prepared. I loved it. It’s better getting wet by water and not sweat. Now it’s about 21 celsius which is nice. This is what normal summer tempature is like in Finland. Even people who like heat must admit rain is needed sometime. Weather is something you can’t change. We just have to live with it.

I love rain and I don’t mind going out. But sometimes I’m just too lazy to do so. I found this old post about “What to do when it’s raining but you don’t feel like going out” It’s from July 8, 2015. I never get bored if the weather is bad because I find things to do. The rain is coming down again so I better go and have a look. I’m always happy when it rains and that’s gold.

If you can’t find a story to read, write your own

What indulgence means to me is making up stories for my own pleasure. I love writing fan fiction. In English only. I have a lot of ideas but they all don’t become stories. I used to read other people’s stories but sometimes I didn’t find any interesting enough. So I began writing them myself. If you can’t find a story to read, write your own. I guess the same goes for blogging. I wanted to write things I like. It’s just a bonus someone else likes them too.

Most of my fiction is about people who exist. But I don’t write about them. It’s a made-up story. It’s just the names that are the same. Maybe some fact too but it’s nothing personal. I’ve written fanfiction about movie characters but my main interest is real person fiction. If someone finds them offensive it’s not really my problem. It’s just harmless fun. You should do things that make you happy and writing fanfiction is mine. I haven’t had any complains so far. I only write them for fun and I won’t make a profit of them. Sometimes you just need an escape from the real world.

I also write fiction because they have improved my English. I’m not a book reader so reading other people’s fan fiction is my thing. Writing is something I enjoy so why stop? I have quite a vivid imagination. I’ve noticed I don’t really know how to write nice characters. They always have some kind of anger issue, if you can call it that. Or telling others what to do. But that’s because my muses usually give me thoughts like that. Oops, revealed too much 😀 You know a writer never tells their secrets to others. At least not me. If I don’t write fanfiction, I write poems. Ideas just come naturally to me when it comes to imagination. I wish I could use that skill in other things in life.

I can find inspiration from anywhere or anything. Like yesterday I saw a title on a forum and it gave me ideas for a story. An idea only though. I got so much inspiration so it feels like there is no time to write them all down. I have to think about the real life too, you know. I hardly end the stories I write because I get bored and then I make up new stories. There needs to be a special feeling when I write and when there isn’t I get writer’s block. I guess it’s the same with blogging. If I don’t have the feeling to write something then I don’t write at all. Or then I’m just tired and I don’t want to think. That’s why writing will remain a hobby for me. And what a fun hobby it is.
