Mr. Brown and I...

It's been another day... nothing more to say than that - not good, not bad... not really fun at all, but not terrible. I stayed up too late last night chatting on MSN, and ended up paying for it by oversleeping... I just started my new schedule and I am already oversleeping!! :(

It's OK - no time to feel bad... just get back to the schedule - this is life, no?

I've noticed that I'm drinking an unhealthy level of coffee since coming to Taiwan - this is either due to the fact that I don't sleep much or that it's so cheap here... or maybe both... certainly it is not due to the taste - most of the coffee is canned, and tastes terrible. The one I can tolerate is a certain style of "Mr. Brown" brand coffee, which shows a jolly-looking man endorsing a fine cup of coffee... to bad it's on a tin can, eh?

Still, it's a convienant little jolt during the day or in the morning. And you can get it cold or warm - they have it in a cooler and a warmer... convienance and service overcomes taste and quality!! Starbucks beware!

Well, in an effort to end such habits (we're talking a six pack a day here!), I've taken to putting a green tea bag in my coffee cup each day, so that during class breaks and meals I just fill up the travel mug with hot water at one of the many hot/cold water stations they have all throughout NTU. I hate green tea, but it's healthy, right? We'll see how long this lasts...

Here we go again... I will go to read for my finance class now - I'm a bit scared of that class, so all the better to prepare for it as much as possible... then on to read the Alibaba business case...
