Shemot, which means names in Hebrew, is Exodus in English. I am reading Shemot in two classes, so I hope I will be an expert soon! The greatest thing is that I can actually understand a lot of the text in Hebrew. It's a really incredible feeling. I like to read it in English first, and then read it in the Hebrew. It may sound like cheating, but it's not. Since I haven't actually taken a biblical grammar class yet, I think it's a good way for me to start.

Today I had a doctor's appointment to get a physical for the gym. It was at 6:45, but I didn't see the doctor until after 7:30. Which meant I didn't get home until 9 after the bus ride. So I'm really exhausted, and I want to go to the gym in the morning. So I will have to be in bed soon if I want to make it there! Also, my blood pressure was 100/70. I think? They said that's good. But I have never really known what that meant.

Hopefully tomorrow will calm down a little. It's been run run run!!

100/70 is good!
The standard/normal for women is about 120/80
Athletes and people who do a lot of cardio tend to have lower blood pressures (mine's around 110/70) so you're good. I think once the top number dips below 90 it's considered having low blood pressure, causing you to get dizzy/lethargic. :)
