Tea – Hot or Cold?

Tea is a very popular drink in the world, that is made different ways in different places. It’s even called different things! I happen to be a huge tea drinker, and to be honest, I love mine hot rather than cold.Tea (like coffee) is a wonderful thing to drink while writing. I love sitting at the table, with a glass of tea next to me as I write. Coffee may do wonders as well, but it is mainly used for those writers who wish to stay up all night.

Tea Around the World

I happened to visit teaaroundtheworld.com and I gathered some interesting information. I found out that in 1901, each person was drinking approx. six pounds of tea every year and Britain was consuming 60% of the world’s tea supply. It’s quite amazing, don’t you think? Well, I happen to know for a fact that tea is very popular in Britain. Which is one of the reasons I will fit perfectly there when I travel to London one day.

Have you ever heard the term “Afternoon Tea”? Well, this event is rather popular amongst the middle and upper classes in Britain. They would drink their tea, as well as nibble on scones, sandwiches and other snacks.

Enough with Britain though, tea is very popular amongst the Asian societies. Such as: Japan, Korea, Tibet and China. Green tea is enjoyed in Japan. I happen to be a fan of green tea as well, and this beverage does wonders medical wise. Trust me, I know.

A lot of places choose to drink their tea hot, rather than cold – as you see mostly in America. In America, you will see a lot of people throwing several cubes of ice into their glass of tea before sitting out poolside as the suns rays shine down upon them. It seems as though tea had suddenly replaced the need of lemonade – and I’m definitely not a fan of this tangy and sour beverage. Though, you may see more teenagers and adults turning to tea, while the little ones stick to the sourness of lemonade. Now-a-days, you’ll also notice the merge in lemonade and tea. Here lately, you see tea makers, such as Lipton, mixing the taste of both. I’ve tried this refreshing drink, and it reminded me of how some restaurants will place a lemon slice on the side of your glass of tea and the lemony taste will find its way to the tea. I’m not a big fan of the mixture, but I definitely think it’s better than drinking lemonade on it’s own.

Tea is very popular around the world. People drink it different ways, put different things in it, and have different moments of the day to drink it. It’s quite funny how other countries are more proper and organized about their tea, while the Americans over here are drinking it left and right. We don’t need a special time!

A Gamer With One Game – Too Much?

 Okay, so I have a confession to make. I am a huge gamer that plays one game way too much.

I’m a huge Resident Evil fan (or, known in other places as Biohazard). I’ve been a fan since I began playing games back in the early 2000’s. My first Resident Evil game was, in fact, Resident Evil for the Playstation. Though, as a young child, I never actually beat the game. I always used to watch my father (the one who got me hooked on Resident Evil) play the game.

As I grew older, I began to play Resident Evil 2 on the Nintendo 64 console. My favorite character to play was Claire Redfield, a young girl who arrived in Raccoon City in search for her brother Chris Redfield, that had gone missing. There, she meets and partners up with Leon Scott Kennedy, a rookie in the Raccoon City Police Department. I have beat this game in the past.

Throughout my life, I also gave Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Resident Evil: Survivor, and Resident Evil Zero a try. Though, I never beat any of those either. (I totally would if the games would keep out of reach of careless handlers).

Then, the fantastic game, Resident Evil 4 came along. I’ve had the game for several years, but I just here recently been playing it numerous times as well as beating it. Let’s just say, I’ve played this game so many times, I have the cut scenes memorized, the locations of the majority of the items memorized, as well as the possession of the Infinite Rocket Launcher and Chicago Typewriter – two powerful weapons that NEVER run out of ammunition. Which is every gamers favorite weapons. Well, the gamers that enjoy doing walkthroughs for other players. Trust me, having the Chicago Typewriter and the Infinite Launcher allows the users to fly through the game while showing others how to play during different scenarios.

Well, as for me, I don’t have the equipment to create walkthroughs, but I have a habit of beating this game multiple times and turning around and playing it all over again.

I believe it’s time for – Resident Evil 5!!!

Friends, Success, and Graduation

I remember the intense feeling of relief and sadness that filled that gymnasium. Everyone screamed and cheered as the hats came off our heads and into the air. We did it, we really did it! We all made it to the end of high school. College, jobs and a life stands before us as we step off the path of youth and onto the path of adulthood.

“Education is key to the golden door of freedom.” -George Washington Carver

Friends. While in high school, there is only one way you can truly survive, and that is to – make a friend. I would’ve never made it in school if I hadn’t had those friends that I shared such memorable moments with that is completely unforgettable. Friends are such a wonderful thing to have and share.

Success. After high school is over, there is only one thing left to do. You must look forward and find that path to success. Many may go to college while others may find a job, either way – they are all successful in my eyes. 

Following these steps in life will only get you a better life ahead. Follow your dreams and your heart and you will be sure to get there fast.
