I love Aaron Sorkin. Seriously. The guy is brilliant.
The West Wing? Yes, I’m a huge fan. My family owns all of the seasons on DVD. What an incredibly smart and witty show.
The Social Network? Duh. That movie blows my mind. I own it, and watch it regularly. Very clever.
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip? I LOVED THAT SHOW. It got cancelled. It was still brilliant. I don’t care what people (ahem, critics) say.
And now, Sorkin has done it again. This time, it’s The Newsroom on HBO. After just two episodes, it has been picked up for a second season. I think that’s a pretty good indication that it’s dang good.
I work in television. I know what they’re talking about on this show. I thrive on the rushed nature of it all. It’s amazing. The terminology, the stories, the people … I. Can’t. Get. Enough.
Have you seen it?! I know many of you don’t have HBO (I learned that through my passionate Girls rants every week), but you should really find a way to watch it online or something. Trust me
Now for a complete change in direction. From television … to caffeine. I’m thinking about cutting coffee out of my life. Considering breaking up. Ending our relationship.
I really love caffeine. I lurve coffee. I find it necessary on
some most days. But I think it’s toying with me. My anxiety skyrockets when I’ve been knocking back that stuff. The butterflies in my stomach zoom around ten times faster. My hands shake more (not good when you need to operate a videocamera!). I like tea, and I’ve tried it as a replacement for coffee since it has less caffeine. But I’m really only a recreational tea user. It doesn’t work to wake me up. I’d rather savour the flavour than rely on it for a caffeine fix. I don’t have coffee every day. But I have been experiencing some discomfort when I do indulge.
I usually get 8 hours of sleep. I don’t know if I can squeeze anymore into my life!
So, I’d like your suggestions! Does anyone else experience increased anxiety after having coffee? Maybe I should give tea another shot? Or cut it all out completely (but I love it so muchhhhhhhhh)? Tell me what you think!
