Yesterday I…

Slept for 9 hours. I can finally breathe again so I think it was the first night in a while that i got a deep, good sleep. Felt great.

Ran 3 miles on the treadmill. Slowly. Being grateful the whole time, watching a Boston Marathon Bombings special on ESPN.

Ate gluten free cookies! A birthday treat for a celiac friend. They were divine.

Told myself to start taking pictures of things again so I actually have some to put in blog posts. (oops!)

Learned how to make sugar alcohols in organic chemistry. Asked nerdy nutrition questions.

Attempted to learn quantum physics. Crazy stuff.

Got lots of good studying done. 3 more days until I’m off to the beach for a quick break!
