Opener testing! I did each opener for two singles, then a lighter triple. My first squat and my second bench were on the slow side, but I’m going to stick with my planned openers (148.5# squat, 93.5# bench and 187# DL) because…
- I’m always slow
- There was no grinding; everything felt good
- I’ll be well-rested and pumped up on meet adrenaline next Saturday
- These are actually a tiny bit heavier than what my openers will be in kg
I’m still scared about the meet but I know I’ve done the best that I can and whatever mistakes I make I’ll try to learn from to do better next time.
Two clinics in underserved areas of Texasâone an abortion providerâclosed their doors this week, as the effects of the omnibus anti-abortion access bill passed last summer with the support of conservative lawmakers continue to unfold across the state.
The Rio Grande Valley no longer has an abortion clinic. All but six clinics in the entire state are slated to close as the rest of HB2’s restrictions to into effect.
This is the part where Texas women start dying. All so Republican lawmakers can help “keep us safe.”

Look, I’m glad ‘12 Years [A Slave]’ got made and it’s wonderful that people are seeing it and there is another view of what happened in America. But I’m not real sure why Steve McQueen wanted to tackle that particular sort of thing.
[‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.

Last bits of meet prep
I haven’t put my last ~3 meet prep logs here so I’ll write an overview of how it has been going and what my plans are for opener testing this Saturday.

Today I got a parking ticket because I didn’t check when the meter expired
I parked because I had to drove because I missed the bus, and I was still 5 minutes late
I turned in a homework assignment that had an entire page of stuff I just basically made up
I got a call from my renter’s insurance agent letting me know that my policy expired and I have to make the last payment. Just completely forgot about all of that.
I apparently unplugged my macbook and just left the cable somewhere, somewhere out in the ether
