Well since spring break is over I definitely feel like school has done an excellent job of taking away any type of normal behavior in my life and replaced it with work so that's good. I haven't been able to write in this bad boy but I've still been working baby! Suck it UMDNJ!

Strength has been gaining steady. Lots of new bests recently. I'm competing at battle of the bad ass May 28th. Going to be the start of another great strongman season and God Willing another national championship. (Big guy is on my side, I'm feeling good)

Well, lets see whats new in Dan's curious house of not so tempting treats. I made some saurkraut tonight. Adds some great beneficial bacteria in your diet. Also brewing up some bone broth right now. Gotta get that natural glucosamine and chondroitin! I also ate a pteradactyl eye, just for fun.
