Tim just posted this on my wall: Bikram Choudhury is the founder of the Yoga College of India. He was born in Calcutta in 1946. Bikram began his yoga journey at age four. He practiced yoga 4-6 hours every day. At the age of thirteen, he won the National India Yoga Championship. He was undefeated for the following three years and retired as the undisputed All-India National Yoga Champion.
"Began his yoga journey at the age of four" … ummm what? You know what I was doing at four? Hammering off my fingernails at kinder (true story).
Tim then responded with “He sounds like a dick”.
Also, no one noticed that I typed Bikram yogo before. Now I’m thinking about Yogo. And the ones that come with m n m’s so you can dip them. Delicious yogo.
So as another futile attempt to spend time in the suburbs with my best friend we decided we should try Bikram Yoga.
Well actually, I just suggested normal yoga but she was super keen to try Bikram for some unknown fucking reason. I really need to work on re-gaining my flexibility for Sam and I’s pole and aerial hoop classes so the idea of yoga excited me, the idea of exercising in a 40 degree room however did not.
Andddd it was probably the worst fucking thing ever. All of the girls were fucking bitches, I’ve never sweated so much in my life and thanks to doing it not once but TWICE in 24 hours I’ve really fucked my shoulder.
And also, all this “may you always speak your truth, know your truth, see your truth” shit is irritating as fuck. And are you supposed to feel as if you’re going to pass out and vomit? I looked at Em at one point and she looked as if she was dying a slow and horrible death.. is that normal?!!?!
Does anyone actually do Bikram? Have they stuck with it? Should we? Because I fucking hatedddddddd it.
“The other reason is that I think that our band is best served in shorter doses, and I don’t think people want a 70 minute Japandroids record. They might think that they do, but I’m telling you from someone that plays in the band, they don’t want that. They really don’t. You listen to the last Fucked Up record – I like Fucked Up and have nothing against those guys – but it’s like their record, where they filled up their entire CD with music…as much as I like Fucked Up, I don’t want to listen to it for 80 minutes straight. It’s a very intense kind of music, and it has its time and place.”—Don’t make me choose between you and Fucked Up, Brian King. (via jakec)
I kind of agree with him, though. You really have to be in the right head space for it and as much as I love Japandroids I could barely handle listening to Post-Nothing in its entirety. Same with Fucked Up. They’ve both written some of my all time favourite songs but even sometimes I catch myself wishing Crazy/Forever was like a minute shorter.
You feel confident that you are making headway in a difficult and trying time. You feel that the course of action you have chosen is the correct one and therefore the troubles that you encounter will, with effort, be overcome. However there is an ongoing uncertainty which causes you distress, and consequently any criticism whether intentional or not can lead to a sudden and unexpected emotional response. Anger is often quick and abrupt, especially if you happen to be self-centred, which is likely.
Stress and difficulty are building up in you at the moment and they are wearing down your considerable reserves of strength. The current situation feels insurmountable and so you are close to changing course and avoiding the situation all together, which is not typical behaviour. You desire a trusting a peaceful relationship and are not finding it.
