Why Cheap Isn't Always Great

This summer while preparing for college, my mom decided to get me a coffee maker. There was one at Target by Mr. Coffee that looked alright and was a very reasonable 8 dollars. I still don't see why mom didn't give me one of her old coffee makers, but that's besides the point.
So a few months later, I find myself in my dorm with coffee supplies. All is dandy. So I made a pot of coffee for me and Michael. Yummmm.... Coffee!
That coffee maker made coffee for all of two times before it suddenly died. For no reason. Everything LOOKED fine, but it obviously wasn't.
So last week I had to go to Walmart and buy myself a new coffee pot. Because I can not live without my coffee. The day coffee disappears the world will end for me.

On a happier note I got my 15 nail polishes in the mail :D I know I promised pictures, but I'm short of good cameras and I'm about to get one when I get the money (in less than a week). I'd rather start with high quality pictures than have crappy ones that I'll have to fix later on anyway.

NOS And Why You Should Never Chug It

Before Michael came into my life four years ago, I had never had a single energy drink. I barely even had soda or chocolate milk; those drinks were considered a treat, only to be had whenever we went out as a family.
Thanks to Michael, I was introduced to Monster. It was love at first sip. I've never chugged Monster; I could only enjoy that lovely, sugary taste in sips. That didn't keep me from buying BFCs, though ;)
Anyway, I decided to try some grape NOS last Sunday. Being the reckless college student I now am, I took Michael up on his declaration that I should chug it. So... I did.
NOT a good idea. Not only could I not get to sleep until well after two in the morning (having chugged the drink around 9 that night), over the next two days I experienced the worst headache EVER. So THAT is what's known as a caffeine headache...
Yeah, I never want to experience that again.
