Red Bull Binge

I’m not sure what to attribute this to, but seeing how my week has gone far I would say I blame it on the alch— don’t get it twisted. Actually I’ve been working hard (and smart) on this mix I’m doing for my label, Sounds Good Records. Just a disclaimer: I’m not a DJ. But I do love how Ableton Live has a DJ-esque template for live performances and mixes. I’ve never done a official mix on the program, so I’m learning a lot in the process, and 1:00am bedtimes are starting to become a norm. With having to be at my job at 8:30am, that leaves little room for a full night a rest. In today’s age, we have solutions for these type of situations: Red Bull.

This little 8.4oz bundle of jolt has gotten me co-dependent on it. I even know that this week Food4Less has them on sale for $1.49… yeah, it’s a craving now. Being on my 3rd can this week (hey Red Bull addicts, this is a huge number to me) I’ve realize that A) It does give you wings, B) It’s taste does leave you fiending for more (hence, 3 cans this week), C) I think I was low-key rooting for New York Red Bulls this week, and D) I need to stop drinking this. I even went as far as trying the Total Zero and Sugar-Free options. Just FYI: Total Zero was terrible, it’s honestly made for Red Bull “enthusiasts” who want to lose weight without kicking their addiction.

In conclusion, after documenting this experience, I have to say: it was fun Red Bull, you brought delight to my under slept days. I’m sorry but I will admit, I was on a binge, it’s an expensive one too (unless there’s a Food4Less nearby). If I continue this route who knows, it’ll be like one-a-day, 5 times a week, and I just don’t see myself dropping $597.60 (+CRV) a year. It’s time to kick the habit… right after I get my hands on the Summer Edition this weekend.
