So for the past two semesters I’ve been using neither coffee nor soda to stay awake during some of the more boring law school classes (I’m looking at you Constitutional Law). No, it’s not cocaine, although 1/3 attorneys does have a substance abuse problem. Rather it’s those Mio energy things. You simply add some to your water and it’s full of caffeine and vitamins. Granted, I don’t buy the actual Mio brand. I like to save a few bucks and buy the store-brand. You kind find them at Walmart or your local grocery store where they keep the gatorade powders and other energy drinks.
Keep in mind that they don’t all contain caffeine. Some of them are just “flavor enhancers” so make sure you grab one that says caffeine. They’re great because you can add as much or as little as you need at the time and taste halfway decent too. Just be sure to follow the label on it, as it’s some strong stuff since it’s mostly caffeine.
