Inoculatte-ing You

I've moved. Again. If this annoys you, I'm sorry. (Well, I'm not really, but I'm saying it hyped up on caffeine knowing that I'm doing the right thing for myself.) I go through phases like this, and I'm pretty sure it's how I lose people in my life. I'm good at losing people, things up, moving things around, backing off and pushing forward, just to give myself some solace. It's probably not the most healthy way of doing things, but sometimes you just need a little kick-start to recharge yourself and move ahead.

It's not that I'm ashamed of who I am, at all, but it's that sometimes a fresh start is the best way to make a big change and it's time to realign, rework and renew who I used to be, who I want to be, who I am.

Welcome to Inoculatted. [ih-nok-yuh-lah-teyd] Inoculatte is defined (by the oh-so-lovely Urban Dictionary) as the process of taking "coffee intravenously" (when you are running late). I rarely run late, but I love the idea of being inoculatted and OMG coffee coffee coffee. I metabolize coffee slowly (thank you genetic testing) and so any sort of coffee in the morning keeps me going all day long. Coffee in the afternoon, well, that's probably part of the reason I take a sleeping pill at night.

To me, being inoculatted can also happen when there isn't any caffeine in my system. Feeling refreshed, energized and ready to go are things I constantly strive for, but oftentimes fail to reach. I am rethinking my life choices at this point in time to create a continually (but not caffeine-based) inocullated state. I hope you'll pour yourself a cup and skip beside me.


  1. If you do this again you should pick something easier to pronounce. :P

  2. @Crystal - bwahahaha ... it's like inculated ... but with the word latte in it. It's easy peasy! :P
