"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it." - Attributed to GoetheFor once, I am genuinely excited about the new year. Mainly for selfish reasons. I think this might just be the best year ever.
I'm "checking out" from grad school on Monday, and I suppose I will get a diploma in the mail at some point, or something. I can put an M.S. behind my name if I want to. And then I am free, to do whatever I can dream up... and I have some pretty big plans, just wait!
I'm finally, finally going to teacher training in April, come hell or high water! I'm getting more excited about this every day (as if I weren't excited enough), because certain beloved teachers of mine are talking about being more involved in this next training and spending more time with us... I'm not gonna start any rumors, but my fingers are crossed...
And of course, the 101 day Bikram challenge launched today! I dragged my slightly hung-over self into the 4:30pm class and did a respectable job at getting the postures done, all things considered. I got a couple really good (and crucial) corrections in triangle last month, and now I feel like I'm doing the pose for the first time. (So THAT'S why everyone says it is a hip opener! Aha!!) We're seeing a huge influx of newbies at my studio already; half of the back row had never done Bikram before. I love having the newbies around!
Anyway, this here is kind of a placeholder blog entry, because I already did my "serious" writing for today at the Bikram 101 blog. I will be writing there on Tuesdays and Fridays from now until April 11th. (We are being all organized. We'll see how long that lasts.) Today's entry is here: DAY ONE: Just "kill your self." Enjoy!
And of course... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
