And then there was DECAF…

Last year, I was on caffeine overdrive.  It took me 7 days to get my Starbucks planner, but I was so hyper I wonder if my classes were able to keep up with me.

This year, it took me 10 days.  I was on caffeine overdrive for three days and it was noticeable because one of Ms. Haya’s students (I was substituting for her last Tuesday) told me that I was dancing and using myself as a mouse pointer.  Two days later, I treated my colleagues to coffee and it was only when Barbs told the barista to make hers decaf that I realized that I didn’t have to suffer sleepless nights for that planner.  Believe me, my eyes were wide as saucers for three days and I was visibly exhausted!

I’ve been to Starbucks Vito Cruz…and whenever that’s full, I’d be in Harbor Square. Then Glorietta 4. Then I discovered another Starbucks in Glorietta (courtesy of Elena’s friend), wherein I got a “free drink” receipt (which I haven’t claimed yet). I redeemed my planner in Starbucks BF International. 11 of those stickers came from paneling for Leosantos31’s and Daniel’s portfolio classes.

Anyhoo, I like this 2008 planner better than last year’s.  2007 planner was bulky (I literally felt like I was carrying the world on my shoulders) and had annoying springs that kept getting detached. This one’s thin, encased in authentic-looking leather and has a sturdy metal spring binder that you can unclasp if you need to.  The only thing I don’t like about it is the pencil…I do prefer a ballpoint pen.

Can’t use it yet…December is the first month on it.

that’s still cheaper than Starbucks’…can you imagine how much coffee you’ve consumed and how much all that cost? 12 christmas drinks + 12 regular drinks. it almost amounts to 3K. XD

I feel sick whenever I drink a Starbucks concoction, there’s this bloated unpleasant feeling every time
