I hated my retail job at the time so my friend hooked me up with a barista job. I also hated coffee at the time. I tried drinking it but always with a lot of cream & sugar.

You’re just going to different cities - the vibes of different spaces were so cool and then you start drinking good coffee and then you try to come back to and just go to your normal Quickie Mart on the corner and you’re like - Oh Wow! I can taste the difference

I have this thing where sometimes there’s a gap between where things happen in my life and when I write about them. And I’m trying to close that gap so that I write more quickly after something happens
