vegan challenge: day 13?

it appears that i have vanquished all twelve days of my vegan challenge. the first few days were pretty awful with lots of shaking, jitters, sluggish brain, etc. i have gradually adapted, however, and i'm feeling lots better than before. my migraine count is way down and i don't feel as tired in my afternoon classes (i am usually tempted to fall asleep). a strange downside, however, is that i feel really drained when i go out in the sunshine for any period of time at all. it's very strange.

now i'm getting ready to catch up on laundry, dishes, and make some large batches of chocolate chip energy bars and mac & "cheese" for the upcoming 10 days AKA the most hellish part of the academic year. last year i stayed awake for over 67 hours straight in order to finish my final project. i feel a little bit better this quarter, but there are still going to be plenty of late nights and over consumption of coffee.

now, however, i am off to eat sandwiches with my lovely boyfriend. enjoy your long weekend!
