Ode to Unsweetened Tea (and why it is the devil...)

Hi friends!

As you can probably tell, I'm having somewhat of a difficult time giving up my sweet tea addiction. Don't panic! It's only until Easter, but I'm actually getting headaches from the lack of sugar in my system...

No, I'm totally kidding.

But, in all sincerity, trying to chug unsweetened tea is like trying to drink lukewarm water. No bueno. I'm definitely getting used to the taste (and it has made me realize that the addictive taste of sweet tea is basically just an addiction to sugar), but it will never take the place of the "amber-colored tonic [that] sets my heart at ease".

Plus, I can't really say that giving up soda and sweet tea for Lent has been that much of a sacrifice (though it has been difficult) because I've replaced them with iced caramel coffees. I suck at life!

My brain hurts right now (first week of the spring quarter at work+ last week of the spring semester for my graduate classes= lots of stress) and all I want is to go home, put on my pjs, curl up on the couch, and spend some time with Jesus.

Until next time!
