I met a blog reader for dinner last night at one of my Chapel Hill favorites — Butternut Squash vegetarian/vegan restaurant.
Brenna is a freshman here at UNC and emailed me last week to see if I wanted to meet up. It’s always fun meeting readers. Isn’t her red hair pretty? I always secretly wanted to be a red head.
Brenna and I had fun chatting away — it made me nostalgic for undergrad days! I miss college — I went to Dickinson College in PA, which I loved. Grad school is fun and all… but not quite the same.
Anyway, it was nice to have a break from biochem studying — and I ordered my usual, the black bean hemp nut burger. Plus sweet potato fries, obvi. Delish!
I saved half of everything for lunch today. Win. Thanks for the fun dinner date, Brenna!
I’m off to go finish studying for and take my biochem exam (my 9 a.m. class before biochem was just cancelled — perfect!), so I will simply leave you all with some happy exercise-related motivation today.

And my favorite:
Hehe. That always makes me smile. I love looking at motivational signs like these, especially now that the mornings have gotten so dark and cold! I find it a million times harder to get out of bed when it’s still pitch black outside.
And now, let’s all complete the following, because it’s always to remind yourself: “I exercise because…” My answer? That’s simple — because it makes me happy.
Happy Wednesday, friends!
