Hi everybody! Wow, what a week. It was filled with history tests, sorority initiation and thanksgiving anticipation.
The best part was surely Delta Gamma initiation. It. Was. Awesome.
I sure wish I could tell you more but the rituals and ceremonies of initiation are secret to anyone not in DG…it is SO hard for me not to blab about everything I do but the secrets of the night make it more special.
I can tell you that we eat a lot of ice cream, oh… yes we do. If you think sorority girls are “those girls” that pass on dessert every time…think again.
After a wonderful night of love and ice cream and secretive stuff, I went to bed feeling all excited for my morning plans to do yoga on my own and eat oatmeal. You think I’m lying when I tell you that I go to bed just counting down the hours until the next morning bowl of oats…no friends, it happens. Well, my excitement always simmers down a good amount by the time I wake up before already early alarm but somehow I always manage to drag myself out of bed!!
In yoga class on Thursday, my teacher (who is probably one of the most awesome people I know because she does headstands and back bends and crazy balancing postures with the attitude of: Oh? You mean to tell me everyone can’t jump their legs over their elbows and balance for an hour? That’s fine…for one day you will) she told us about how people practicing yoga in India often begin their practice at 4 am…sometimes they do hit the snooze button and start at 6 am though.
So today, I did as the yogis in India do…got up before the sun and practiced my yoga. After 45 minutes on the mat I felt refreshed, energized and limber…and ready for some breakfast!
