Let me just start this rant by saying that I'm totally a morning person when I need to be, and when early morning activity is part of my normal schedule (like when I regularly go to morning classes, or work morning shifts). I'm ok with getting up at 6 am, especially if I got to bed early the night before.

My Monday/Tuesday clinicals start this next week. I registered for evening clinicals (starting at 2pm) because at this time I normally work evenings . Yesterday I found out that my clinical instructor just up and quit, less than a week before clinicals start. All her students have to find new clinical instructors willing to take them in. And guess what! No openings in any evening clinicals! I get to wake up at 4am on Monday and Tuesday mornings, even though every other Sunday night I don't get home from work until 11:30pm.

This will suck. I'm a morning person when morning means 6am-8am, NOT 4am, especially when I've only gotten between 3 and 4 hours of sleep the night before. Sure, I can do it once and a while but not two days a week for months.

I'm peeved because I registed for my evening clinical in MAY, and I lose it because my teacher quits in AUGUST. I'm sure she had a good reason, and I'm trying really hard to not be mad at her personally but it's not working all that well. I'm trying to be mad at the situation itself, but it's just so frustrating and unfair. Its not fair to her students who have to scramble around at the last minute, and it's not fair to the other instructors who have to take in a bunch of extra students who they really didn't have room for in the first place. [Mad]

I hate coffee, but by Monday I think I'm going to have to learn to love it. Any tips?

Poor you. I've worked shifts and I hate coffee, but I could handle a latte, tastes a bit like a warm coffee-flavoured milkshake and you can buy instant ones to drink at your desk.

Alternatively you could go for Red Bull or some such, but that doesn't have the same "comfort drink" things about it. I keep Red Bull in my car, it's part of my emergency kit.

Oh yes to sugar in coffee. Without it I really can't get very far down a cup, however knackered I'm feeling.

Thanks for the tips guys! My boyfriend will love this- he's been trying to get me to drink coffee for over a year and I've told him that I won't drink it as long as I live.

I guess he wins this one! [lol]

Well for one thing, you need a good coffee. Don't buy the store brand instant stuff...you'll hate it. Buy something good, and get a decent coffee maker. Use fresh, cold water to brew with.

I don't like my coffee black, personally, but I find that flavored creamers make it taste very nice. I would suggest finding a flavor you like and adding it to the coffee, then you can forgo the sugar if you'd like. At least that's what I do. YMMV.

Good luck. And if you find you just can take coffee, soda's are always a good alternative, as well as tea. Tea can have as much caffiene as coffee, so maybe you could drinnk that instead.

My boyfriend is another coffee freak, and he's been trying to help me love coffee too! I know how you feel!!

What I've found is that I can tolerate flavored coffees. There's a Kahlua and cream flavored one that is just GREAT. I just use a lot of sugar and milk in it, and I actually enjoy my flavored coffee on the weekend mornings!


Good luck!

ETA: Lizzy mentioned tea...that's what I prefer WAY over coffee. Get some tasy Chai tea, that has lots of caffeine [Smile] Or if you can find it, Yerba Matte is similar to a green tea and very tasty. It gives you the caffeine high without the crash.

I never liked coffee until I was in my thirties and finally had a good cup. Then it was "Oh, momma, where ya BEEN all my life?"

For me the key was learning what kind of roast I like--mild, light, for my taste--and that was it. Maxwell House, Folger's, none of them hit the spot, but a nice mild Colombian Supremo, or even better, a light-roast Kona--delicious. And I like the smell of the beans even better than the coffee.

So buy a few of those little samples and try different roasts and different beans. I'm somewhat of a coffee snob now (though I drink only one cup a day, generally) because we buy whole beans and grind them as needed and we invested in a fairly expensive but small four-pot coffee maker. But doggone it, that morning cup is great!

I also agree with using a good coffee. I also suggest avoiding dark roasts to start, go with medium roast coffee instead.

Flavored coffee is what I like. I found this really good chocolate raspberry truffle from Gloria Jeans. Now everytime SO and I go to the mall, I have to stop in and buy a pound.

Maybe there's a flavor you might like. Gloria Jeans Coffee Beans Flavored Coffees

I will teach you no such thing. If you like coffee, then you'll buy coffee, thus creating more demand and rising prices. So you stick to soda or tea and leave the coffee to me. In fact, leave all of the coffee to me. I can drink enough for a small battalion.

Yup.. to echo what others have said, start with a quality light/medium roast. The darker the roast, the stronger (and, in my opinion) more bitter tasting the brew is. Me hates bitter coffee! In fact, I hated coffee period until I got out on my own and started experimenting with different types. My parent's coffee was always deathly strong and black as tar... ew!!

I either grind my own at home, or grind it myself at the store. Like Brad, I've become a coffee snob, and refuse to buy pre-ground Folgers etc, they just taste stale to me now.

I use flavored powdered creamers... Irish Creme and Cinnamon Vanilla are my favorites... and a packet of Sweet 'N Low. A caution about the sweetener however... ONE packet of artificial sweetener is as sweet as TWO packets of sugar, so tread lightly until you figure out what works best for you!

Enjoy! [Smile]

That is similar to how I started on coffee. I was in nursing school and clinicals started for us before 7 am. We had to be on the floor by seven. Very had after being up with the books all night. *yawn* I fell asleep right in front of the instructor! I went down to the cafeteria on break and loaded up a cup with lots of cream and sugar.

Now I am hooked on it. Not just regular coffe though, I jones for FLAVORED coffe. [Big Grin] I have have my co-workers hooked on it too.

But there are other beverages for a caffiene high. My daughter prefers MDX. That's mountain dew with extra caffiene. How about sports drinks? TEA?

I don't have that problem. My recent favorite is to get a Vault Zero in the morning if I'm not going to be in a cool place.

Otherwise, I like to frequent the gas stations that stock flavored syrups and creamers along with various coffees. Around here, it's usually the stations that serve Best Bean brands of coffee. I prefer the dark roast coffees (especially Kenyan and Colombian) with caramel syrup, though!

ETA: I started on coffee real young. Who's foolish enough to give coffee to a three year old? My mother! [lol]

If you're making it yourself, try making the coffee about half as strong as the directions say. Also, if you can't get your hands on flavored, try sprinklin some cinnamon on the grounds. It adds a nice hint of flavor.

In my experience a laydown duing the day for around 30 minutes is a better long term solution than amping up the caffeine intake. But I am very sensitive to caffeine and not getting enough sleep so caffeine + not enough sleep = heart palpitaions, tremors, nausea, double vision, cold sweats. So in general a bad thing. If you have any free 45 minute block on Sunday, I would highly reccomend a nap. Not lie down with a book or TV, a real nap.

Yeah, every other Sunday, when I don't work, I'll have plently of time for a nap. But the Sundays I do work, I won't have any time for a nap between 11am-11pm. I was planning on sleeping in on those days.

Might I second the nap idea? A caffeine addiction can be very hard to break, and any kind of addiction gets expensive.

But this is from the girl who can't have caffeine at all or she's up half the night. Heck, I'm up half the night anyway, sometimes. But anxiety and caffeine don't mix, and I have anxiety. Not saying you do, but still.

Enough babbling, back to work for me.

My Mom likes the cappuccino you can get from a machine at gas stations (at least around here). But the cappuccino is too sweet and heavy by itself, so she cuts it about half and half with plain coffee. That's usually a pretty cheap alternative, with a couple of different flavors available. Maybe that would help.

Naps are great if you have time for them. If you don't have time, and MeliKoritsi doesn't seem like she does, caffeine is your only ally.
Given your schedule MeliKoritsi, I suggest you skip the drinking part and just go with free-basing the grounds. [Wink]

I'm not understanding the suggestions of naps to someone who has said that she does not have time for them in her schedule. If she had time to fit in a nap, she probably would not have posted the rant. Why suggest something that has been ruled out as an option?

MeliKoritsi, it was 'European' coffee drinks that got me into coffee. Cappuccino, mochas, cafe lattes, etc. They tend to be milder and thus were good gateway beverages to regular brewed coffee.

Same here. I cannot drink coffie unless It has about four scoops of sugar and a ton of cream. If there is no sugar or cream for the coffie I just suffer of find a can of moutain dew. However, I've noticed that if I have to drink a can of pop as a substitute for my morning coffie, It does not have the same effect.

I will add that if you're out of creamer, nestlies quick chocolite mix is a good substiture. yum yum.

Where does she say she doesn't have time for a nap? I only see that she doesn't have time every other Sunday. That doesn't mean she couldn't nap Monday, Tuesday, or any other day the rest of the week. As fatigue can be somewhat cumulative, a nap another day might help.

Besides, just because she asked for solutions geared towards one approach for solving a problem (coffee in this case for fatigue) doesn't mean that she wouldn't be open to other perspectives she hadn't thought of before. Maybe she had thought of naps, but heck, maybe she hadn't.

Not trying to be snarky or put words in anyone's mouths.

I envy the person for whom a nap on Tuesday helps them feel less tired the following Sunday. Honestly, I've never met such a person.

Yes. I agree.

For an extra kick- if I'm driving for a long period of time- Mountain Dew. But only for that extra kick. Normal days get Diet Pepsi.
