Every Student's Best Friend.

I have some exciting news... I’m going to be a student again. (eee!) The University of Georgia has kindly accepted me as a transfer student, so come January I can head back and get my degree. This is something I’ve wanted to accomplish for a long time (as some of you may already know). I can’t wait. At night I dream of ballpoint pens, Five-Star notebooks and highlighters. The front row seat in each of my classes is being mentally reserved for me come January. DON’T TOUCH IT!

I realized today that - in homage to my new plight as a student - I ought to dedicate something to the glorious world and lifestyle that is college. And what more perfect necessary accoutrement to books, papers and studying could there be than every student's best friend, coffee.

Coincidentally, our coffee machine broke down the other day. It started sputtering and billowing puffs of steam that lingered about the kitchen like faint clouds. We decided it was time to get a French press.

It was a good decision. I love this thing. It takes coffee to a better-tasting, downright inspiring level. All you have to do is wake up, boil water, pour water in grounds, wait four minutes, press and drink. I'm no coffee sommelier, but I swear I can taste all the rich, roasted flavors... although I may need to give credit to Jittery Joe's as well. Anyway, it gives me a happier morning. It makes me like waking up. Armed with this lovely, fresh cup of coffee I think I could ace any exam that is coming my way...

The moral of the story here is to go get a french press. You won't regret it, and they are selling them right now for half price on Amazon. If you love coffee and already know this, then the second moral of the story is that I'm going back to school. Hooray!

I love that you're going back to school! And I second that emotion with the french press! Ever since Precept started charging $1 PER CUP (of crappy coffee), I've brought my french press along with BETTER coffee. I am the envy of Precept, I must say ;) Love you and your blog and your french press and your going back to school!

Congratulations on 2 counts: I 2nd that school emotion, applying for post-grad once I realized I missed the Masters Studies . . . and a French Press is definitely the way to go: I've been a Press Convert for years now--and that's good to know about the Amazon deal, as my current Press is on its last legs :-)
