I always thought coffee had no effect on me, cuz there were times when I drank it before going to bed and I still managed to dive into my pseudo-reality. But of late, because of the mid-semester tests and assignments, I had no choice but to drink lots of it hoping that it will keep me sufficiently alert. Amazingly it kept me up for long hours and even when I went to bed, it’s a struggle to actually get to sleep. Now, the white in my eyes (“sclera” for the biologically challenged) has turned dark and I look like some undead from a B-grade movie. I think I will stick to milk from now on.
