A Mango Tart to Brighten Up My Day

Work has been crazy. It’s that time of the year where everyone in the office is stressed out. I decided to buy a few of my co-workers coffee from Starbucks, and when I gave it to them they had the biggest smile on their faces. It made them feel a bit more motivated and happy to continue their work.

Today, I got my vanilla latte with soy. But that mood was suddenly ruined because I had to clean up after another co-workers’ mess in the break-room. What was ironic about this situation was that we recently signed an acknowledgement form to keep our break-room clean – basically clean-up after ourselves. I sent out an email to the company (hoping to find the culprit haha), and my moody self literally gave an aura stating, “do not talk to me.” It was amusing hearing some of my co-workers yell out “it wasn’t me!”

About 10 minutes after I sent out that email, my mood suddenly changed after a co-worker walked into the office and handed me a mango tart from 85 Degrees Bakery (my co-workers really likes to spoil me with food). It’s amazing how food can really brighten up your day, and make you feel more positive. So for breakfast, I had a vanilla latte and a mango tart which made me very hyper from all the sugar haha.
