I didn’t think I’d ever need to baby proof my house, what with me not having kids and all. However, a few weeks ago, my four legged babies proved me wrong! Well, the little one to be more precise. After having kept him in the room for quite a period of time because I had guests, he started scratching through the window screens and before I knew it, he not only cut a hole threw it but he ate some of the pieces by accident. The little thumbscrews had fallen and luckily, I caught it before he put it in his mouth and swallowed it. Oh gosh, I tell ya! So yeah, this weekend I’m baby proofing the house!
Yep, this is me packing for an overnight trip! Finally figuring out how to pack light. Hahaha. My colleagues laughed because they’re so used to seeing me with ginormous baggage and lots of other stuff!
I was reading through my old blog posts about yoga and I realized how truly deeply yoga has changed me. I do miss writing that way, I must say. Reading through those posts showed me so many sides of me and it made me appreciate even more what yoga does. One great thing yoga has done for me is that it changed my manner of responding to the world. Correction, it taught me how to respond better to the world. There was a time in my life when I would respond to challenges by spiraling down into a deep depression, even using food and alcohol to numb my feelings. If I had gone down that path even more, I wouldn’t be surprised if I would be needing alcohol treatment and intervention. Seriously. I probably would have been doped up on antidepressants as well. However, yoga showed me I was stronger than that. And in time, I found my ground.
Yoga is amazing. Read more about my experiences of yoga at www.archetypesandasanas.com.
OMG. Just recently the once elusive (because it was so far and inaccessible to me!) yoga store, Certified Calm, opened up just a block away from the studio I practice and occasionally teach in. GAAAAAH! On my first trip there, I walked out with a Manduka Travel Mat. My excuse, my Jade mat (which I got from them too to replace my cheap yoga mat that I loved but had frayed to death already!) was slippery already and it was too heavy to lug around when I teach. On my second trip, I had to stop myself from taking home another sticky mat! I’m afraid to even go back because they have this meditation pillow that I want to get! The store needs a better review than this, but since I blog about yoga at www.archetypesandasanas.com, I think I’ll review it better there Here, however, I react! Har
Okay….so I finally got myself an iPhone recently and it comes with a pair of earphones. I kinda like that it’s shaped to fit the contour of your ears, but it’s kinda weird. I like the sound though. So here’s my random question to the music listeners out here: what’s the best partner for your music? Headphones or earphones? Also, what would be better, Head Candy or Sennheiser Headphones???
Yes, it is one of those days when I am SO DARNED EXHAUSTED. I’ve been so busy these past few months I’ve barely had time for my boys, let alone my blogs. It’s so sad when these things happen. Yes, I know it is a part of life but OMGGGGGGGGG…I need a break.
Nope, I’m not selling business cards (although I do remember doing that back in high school when I had all these cuteypatootey Disney print art programs!), but I’m asking if anyone can refer a good place to get some done? And when I say good, I mean reliable and affordable. Preferably one that I can just coordinate with online and have orders shipped and all. Maybe if they offered an online business card template or program for editing, that would be much better. I need yoga business cards soon, and I already have a perfect design but I’m still waiting to print it! Let me know, okay?
I was cleaning up my room over the holidays and finally decided to give up on some of my collections. I realized that this would be a good way to practice that art of non-attachment that my yoga teachers keep talking about. In my lifetime, I’ve gone through phases of collecting stickers (Lisa Frank was the best!), stationary (specially the pretty, pretty ones!), bookmarks, Happy Meal toys(I did get almost 90 of the 101 Dalmatians), stamps, coins (I never did find that eisenhower dollar that we used to joke about), and so on and so forth. But yeah, I have overgrown them now. I keep thinking that if I hold on to it, it will eventually cost a lot on ebay or something. In the meantime, however, it continues to collect dust. Not right. And so I’m giving them up.
What about you? Any collections you keep? Do share.
