2. I Love Drinking Water

It's a good thing my parents got me into the habit of drinking water at a young age. When I was younger, my parents made sure I drank fluoridated water. I believe it was to strengthen my teeth, but I was too young to understand why.

In my teen years, I recall being depressed about a girl liked in college, and because I don't drink alcohol, I pulled out a 2 liter jug of water, which served as my beer. I certainly didn't get drunk, but my bladder felt the effects of that drinking spree.

Even when it comes to colored drinks and juices, I prefer water. And it's my definite preference over any carbonated beverage. I'm convincing my father to follow in my footsteps. That battle continues.

Currently, I would say I consume somewhere around 3 liters of water daily. I don't leave home without it and I have a bottle handy anywhere I go, even if it's just at home.

It really comes in useful, especially with the extreme heat, so staying hydrated isn't an issue for me. I did came across an advice that said not to drink too much in such a short period of time and to stretch it out. I guess I won't brag anymore about being able to drink half a liter of water in under 15 seconds.

On May 5, 2024, I started a list of things for which I am grateful. It could be a talent, an event, or a memory that helped shape who I am or had an impact on my life. One blog entry, one item, one day. The items will be in random order but they will all be things that have influenced me in a small or huge manner.
