Whiskey Tea

Two of my favorite things in the world are tea and whiskey.  Especially since I just finished a horrendous four hour Criminal Law final, I might need a little bit of both to get me through the rest of the day.

Here’s a perfect recipe for those useless hours between “coffee” and “wine.”


Ingredients

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tea bag (best with a black tea)
  • 2 shots of whiskey (or more, if you feel like it. No judgment here!)
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

Directions

  1. Boil some water. Pour it in a fancy pants mug.
  2. Throw in the tea bag to steep for as long as the tea needs. Usually around 3-5 minutes. Remove and discard.
  3. Put one shot of whiskey in the tea.  Take the other one because you deserve it.
  4. Add milk and sugar to your pleasing.
  5. Stir, drink, forget your problems.

An Open Letter to Barbri Prep

Dear Barbri Prep,

As finals approach, I wanted to write a quick note (as I procrastinate for finals) about the services you provide and how they have helped me throughout my first year in law school.  While I am still prone to heart palpitations when the professor looks for a student to call upon, I am the basest level of prepared for any ridiculous question they might have due to those wonderful videos you have on your site.  It brings me immense joy when I am able to adequately answer a question that some other idiot student in the class was asked, but was unable to answer.  The extra five minutes I save from reading your outlines and watching your videos allows me to have the mental breakdown I deserve.  That being said, I understand that your company forsaking me in my time of need is a definite foreseeable risk.  Please be aware of your duty of care to me, as breaching this duty of care in the next two weeks constitutes adequate provocation.  All I want is an estoppel from failure, and a good night’s sleep.

Have the best day legally allowed,

Shelby
