Earl Grey Experiment

Wow, it's been a while since I've updated but the list of usual excuses come up; exams and work. Although my exams finished on April 28th (day after my birthday, that's right, I had to study on my birthday!), work started the following Monday and so did my kickboxing classes. In addition to my full-time job (for the summer), I have a part-time job tutoring and the kid's exams were coming up so after my first job, I'd head to my second job and on Mondays and Wednesdays, I'd head off to kickboxing after and get home at around 10 PM. When I don't have kickboxing, I finish work at 8 PM and 7 PM on Fridays, arriving home between 8 PM to 9 PM.

My schedule is still like this but tutoring is going to finish next week since his last exam is on Friday, which gives me more free time after my first job, even if I do have kickboxing after. I love kickboxing! It's amazing and it's so challenging. I love that our coach makes out really work out and that he's still a nice guy. I'm definitely going to sign up again during the fall and even in the winter. Plus, it toning up my flab is a nice bonus ;)

So the weather is finally nice. It's only been raining for the past month, with a random sunny day before reverting back to rain. This is the second day in a row where it's been nice and sunny! Just looking outside makes me happy, never mind feeling the sunshine on my skin.


As I was saying, before blogger MESSED EVERYTHING UP! I love drinking Earl Grey tea because it's the best tea around, obviously. But for some reason, whenever I drink it at work, or at home, it never tastes nearly as good as when I drink it at my boss' house (tutoring). It was at his house that I was introduced to my tea soul mate. Strangely enough, whenever I drink it at work, it tastes like crap, at home, it's alright but at tutoring, it's soooooooo delicious. I wonder why, I add milk and sugar to the tea whether I'm at work or tutoring (milk and honey at home)and the brand is the same (Twinnings). Does anyone know why this happens? I highly doubt that china tea cups and sugar cubes make all the difference. I'll do an experiment tonight at tutoring and I'll post the results some other time.
