Right now, I am in the middle of another intense period. I just started my new work assignment and have a huge file of reading to catch up on (467 items to be more exact), and at the same time I have a Romanian exam tomorrow and my first food policy assignment for the semester is due in little over two weeks. Fortunately, I got a new coffee maker for regular coffee a while ago, and it has proven to be my best friend in this period. Well, almost anyway. But it has certainly increase my productivity in critical situations in addition to me lately having people over for Sunday afternoon coffee. A very good investment indeed!
