I spontaneously changed the Paper Breathers theme (again). Hopefully this is The One, at least for this year! The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of lab work, classwork, and half marathon training. (Wait, have I told you that I’m running a half marathon? If not, I AM. AHHHHH!) But it’s been infinitely less stressful than a few months ago, and I’m happy with my academic and physical progress. 🙂 I’m still keeping my new year’s resolutions in mind, especially thinking more efficiently because I’m just not an efficient person… procrastination is the enemy!
