Java and I have been in a long-term relationship ever since I could talk. Ok. Maybe you haven’t noticed, but I have an obsession with coffee. Yes. I admit it. Coffee shops are my kryptonite. I try to evade the sweet scent of intoxication, but I can’t resist – I can’t pass by the foaming
As I clicked “Send,” I said a quick prayer and waited for their response. I need this meeting. I need this client. I need this opportunity. I REALLY need a nap. It seemed like hours and THEN, I heard it –  the beautiful sound of victory – “You’ve got mail.” I know what you all
