I came to Starbucks to do some writing about ASMR, but I have hit a wall. I decided it better to write this than nothing. It is raining outside, and so here I am. I could go back to my house, but what does that have in store for me? Nada. I have no desk! lol.
I just took my last sip of espresso. The time is 17:32 on December 5th, 2019. To think that I was going to stay here until like 20:00 or 21:00 is a little crazy. Seriously though! I want to get way ahead on these asmr articles. Once I have a body of work, not only in my archives but also on the site, then I can move on to bigger things. I will have something to show folks, even if it isn’t popular. I wish Starbucks had more food options, but I am still satisfied enough to keep coming back.
Yeah. I am feeling really useless writing this. I just need to move forward and write some v.o.t.d. articles. How many can I write tonight? [spoiler alert! it was zero] I still reread each one right before I post it, and give everything one last edit. Even since I started votd 6 days ago, I have done some serious butchering [on an article I had already finished over the weekend]. It is good for the long term to have quality stuff, but I’d like to get to the point where I am just posting them day-of, not editing them as well. Even if I have the urge…lol.

The time is 09:14 on December 7th, 2019 and I am writing to you from Starbucks Reserve on Chestnut street. There was a lady in front of me in line, and we walked the same path here all the way from FIllmore and Union. When it was her turn to order, she ordered a ‘grande green tea oat milk matcha latte,’ and the way she presented this information to the [obviously new] cashier was with prose. I mean seriously, there should be a book of Starbucks poetry. I could write it, but it would be a finickey thing to read, because it would be read differently by everyone. The live readings would be some of the best in the world though. Within the last six years my view on Starbucks has turned around to be enormously favorable. If you would have told me in 2013 that I would end up frequenting Starbucks as much as I do…I suppose I might believe you lol. I’d kick your ass if you told me I was still working a 9-5 though. The truth is that I came here not to write this article [which will be the first of many named after the order in front of me]. I came with the purpose of writing asmr articles! and so I must, begrudgingly, move onto that. It was nice that I have a passion I can split two ways though. I don’t think writing this blog will ever get too boring, and I don’t think writing for my own business will ever get too stressful.
