That’s a very good question.

Firstly, I apologize for not being around much. I haven’t had anything of much importance to say, really, and I’m sure you guys wouldn’t appreciate junky posts just for the sake of posts.

I’ve been drinking tea, of course. I haven’t really been enjoying it, though. I think I’m bored of the whole routine, rather than the tea being bad.

I’ve been enjoying green tea, mostly, occasionally Taiwan oolong or Iron Goddess for the sake of variety. Green tea tends to make me feel very meditative, so maybe that’s why I’ve wanted to drink it more: all this sitting around doing nothing makes me want to spend that free time thinking.

I’m definitely bored, and the job market is anemic to put it nicely. I am probably going back to school, in Prince Edward Island. I hope I hear from them soon, because then I could make a definite plan for the next four months, whatever they decide. Being stuck in neutral isn’t fun.

Here are my tea goals:

-Write a tea column for a newspaper-Get more Korean tea
-More yellow tea, too
-Start a new tea club wherever I end up

I might have a lead on that first item, which is why I won’t have any reviews until the deal is done, either for rejection or actually being able to write reviews and columns for my local paper. We shall see.

Anyways, I hope to be here more often and write about tea instead of everything else but tea which has been my MO lately, both here and on the Twitter.


Talk to y’all soon,


-Happy G

PS: Send me a private message if you want one of my drawings on a letter or a postcard. I like mailing things!

    You don’t just have to write about tea Chris. I mean, there’s only so much you can say every day about the stuff : P I love tea, but there are many other things to talk about. While this is a tea blog, on a tea blogging site, I like the personal stories too. Just add a mention of whatever tea you were drinking while writing your post. Keep us updated. I really hope that good things happen soon. The article writing and the college both sound pretty interesting. Teacups crossed.

    Now I feel I should also write a blog to report “where have i been and what have i been doing” :-p

    Good luck for work, or school! You know, sometimes, what you are is not as important as how you sell yourself. But ultimately, what you are is always important :-)
