I’m a second-year communications student majoring in public relations from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

I have a big problem with over-committing myself that’s resulted in me working two part-time jobs and doing a part-time internship while being in school full-time. So, naturally, I have become a full-blown coffee addict to avoid falling asleep during any of my given commitments.shaylyn-mcmahon-head-shot

Everything was going swell and dandy until I found myself chugging back an energy drink one day – something I loathe. There aren’t many things I hate in this world, but energy drinks are one of them. Anyways, I’m now dedicating this blog to exploring the different methods and myths of energizing yourself. Whether it be debunking a current myth about eating apples each morning or gathering different data on the best ways to stay awake, I will explore it, because there is no way I will fall into the deep, dark pit of Red Bull again.

So, if you also have a problem with saying no – to commitments or caffeine – follow me as I find better ways to keep my eyes open!
