I’ll take my coffee black please

This year is rapidly coming to a close. Its a time of reflection and anticipation. People reflect on everything they did or didn’t do all year. Swear they will  accomplish those new year’s resolutions next year. I however, do not make new year’s resolutions. Making outlandish goals I will not achieve leaving me to feel crappy. Gee, that sounds fun. No thanks. I only make life goals. I only allow myself three at a time. With only three allowed it keeps me from putting something fair weather on my list. I also do not put any time frame on  my list. I always feel so bad for people who have lists of things they want to do by the time they turn forty and when they miss something on the list they are so depressed they run out and get a hot car and a fast woman. As much fun as a hot car and fast woman sounds. I refuse to regret anything in my life. Thus the three goals. My first three goals in life were to have a child, buy a house, and become a teacher. As you can see I have completed those goals. So I had to make a new list. I wanted this one to be more challenging. I love a good challenge. My new list is to get my Phd, publish a book, learn to drink my coffee black. You are probably thinking the coffee is awfully random. But it is the most important. How can I continue to pull of my super cool hipster image if I continue to drink sugar coated pretend coffee drinks?

  1. An admirable goal, learning to drink your coffee black, once you do you will wonder how you ever stomached it any other way. My advise is to go for good quality coffee when you try this as it is much better.

  2. The idea of endless bucket lists turn me off. I like your micromanagement approach.

    Drinking coffee black is easier than you’d think. When I lived in Korea, no place offers cream or milk so you have to do away with it unless you want to just order a latte. And once milk is out of the way, it’s only a matter of time until you just throw in the towel and get rid of sugar too.
