Name and explain the one guilty pleasure you can't live without. ie: that cupcake shop you visit weekly, a book you repeatedly read to find solace in, etc). Then explore the idea of how you would feel if you gave that thing up for a year.
Hmm....well, I guess the idea of this is that it should be something I feel guilty about or, at the very least, embarrassed to admit to people...and I am kind of known for owning up to my quirks proudly and loudly.
This is tough!
I suppose if I had to choose, it'd be coffee/caffeine. I love coffee so much that it's bordering on obsession. When I was in Seattle and Portland last week, I felt like I had arrived on the MOTHER SHIP of coffee obsession. The original Starbucks. Stumptown. Tully's. Home-brewed and ground coffee that my friends made. COFFEE COFFEE EVERYWHERE.
So. Many. Profile pictures of me drinking coffee.
So...yeah. I know that it's not good to have too much caffeine. It'll stunt my growth (at 5'3" I'm not too fussed about that). It'll stain my teeth. Blah blah blah. But I love it. I love the comfort of the warm mug. I love the way it smells. I love the different ways it can be brewed and flavored. I love the conversation that happens across the tops of two steaming cups between friends.
If I had to give it up for a WHOLE YEAR? I'd be very very very sad, and I'd try to find a loophole. Can I have decaf? Can I have TEA? It would be a very sad year, indeed.
