I need to stop drinking Mountain Dew.

I’ve drank soda since the earliest days of my memory. It’s just something everyone in my family has done. I think it’s time for me to stop. For my friends – you’ll all laugh because there’s probably never been a moment you have seen me that I didn’t have a bottle of my trusty drink of choice in hand, Mountain Dew. Why do I now think I should stop?

Probably the biggest thing is that as I get older I can feel the come down more and more. I’m only in my early twenties and already I find myself sitting at night time completely drained because I don’t have a Mountain Dew. Coffee for me has never been an option and maybe it should be. Or at least maybe I need to be more frugal on the choice of drinks I make. Last night a downed half a two liter of Pepsi and I couldn’t sleep until the caffine wore off.

Perhaps I’m not just a kid anymore. When I was growing up I was a multi-sport athlete who worked out twice a day. I definitely don’t do that anymore but my consumption has stayed the same. I think to look at my lifestyle choices and make better choices as I get older so that I can life a long and happy life. I don’t wa t to be addicted to Mountain Dew my entire life.

My name is Brandon, and I like to make things. I'm a Full Stack Software Engineer and Linux Administrator from Ann Arbor, Michigan. I started programming when some childhood friends and I decided to make a private Ragnarok Online server and host it in my parents basement. I got designated "code guy", fell in love, and never looked back. I started teaching myself as much as I could, and started my first online entity, a non-profit, with a high school classmate. Eventually I took this love to the University of Michigan where I studied Computer Science Engineering and Mathematics. During my time there I was lucky enough to work for two iconic tech companies, Automattic and Google. Currently, I am the Technology Director of Argo Labs, an Ann Arbor based digital engineering, design, videography, and content marketing company aiming to build a more unique web that I cofounded in July 2015 with two of my best friends.

Stop drinking all sugar based drinks. You’ll feel better for it.
