"Stress, when properly applied, is what forces the organism to adapt to a higher level of fitness. Take, for example, the hands. If you were to rub your hand on a rough surface in just the right way and for just the right amount of time, a callus would appear. This callus allows the hand to withstand the stresses you have imposed upon it. If, however, you were to rub your hands on a rough surface very rapidly too long a period, blisters would form, and the adaptive process would never be given a chance. The same kind of physiological adaptation occurs in many other organs of the body, including muscle, tendon, and ligament tissues."

Day 15. 100 Happy Days: I fucking love lifting. First ever bench press competition. Hit 250lbs pause press. Missed 265. It’s ok because I got my two attempts. Honestly I’ve never felt so happy doing this. Something about getting in the zone and unracking heavy ass weight and pressing it. Next semester, deads and squats. I swear I will rip it. 😁😍😍😁 indescribable.

Day 14.2. Exercise Physiology & Biomechanics Lab. We do gait analysis, body composition, skinfolds, determine BMR, BMI, RER, vertical reach, ROM, force vectors, blood pressure, VO2 max, myofascial release, functional corrective exercises, etc. (:

I think my favorite one is measuring someone’s RER. But that’s tied with force vectors and gait analysis. RER respiratory exchange ratio, is the measuring of air exchange 😒 but it determines what primary substrate is fueling your body 😍

That moment in your childhood when you realize that Diagon Alley is just the word diagonally….


And the Mirror of Erised is just the word desire backwards.

Didn’t even realize. Does that mean Knockturn Alley is nocturnally (dark/night)?

Yes, and Grimmauld Place is a play on grim old place.

Day 13. 100 Happy Days: Told my friend it $5.99 for a large pizza… He gives me $20 and tells me to get it. Lol. This made me so happy. I love pizza. I probably get pizza 1-2 times a week. I always asked for garlic herb sprinkled all over. The best.

Day 11. 100 Happy Days: My supplies case (: I keep all my favorite pens and pencils here. Won this at a physical therapy month event thing. This is kind of motivating. I also use this to make people think that I’m a PT student 😛, I always study in the Health Professions Building.

Day 10. 100 Happy Days: Real Love shared unto me and my brother. This kind of love gave and continues to give me an illustration of what real love is… How to treat someone you care about, how to treat your children, how to treat other people.
