I am a lover of caffeine and all things sweet. I believe there is no such thing as 'too much chai' or 'too many cafes'. And that music is the best part of any commute. I spend my time binge watching shows, jamming to new tunes, reading a few odd articles and books when not in pursuit of the next new thing.
