my typical saturday...
dorian just got back from a hatha teacher training in india. he was very energetic! we did a lot of things i've never done in his- or any other- yoga class before; several partner adjustments and things against the wall. it was... challenging! lots of hip openers. i can tell it was good practice, though, because i have never been able to do a very good mandukasana (frog pose). but in that class, i was able to get a nice spider pose against the wall, and a pretty nice center split against the wall. i forsee a better mandukasana in my future. :) also, i am not really into partner yoga (i'm so embarrassed people have to touch me when i'm sweating buckets) but the lady who partnered with me cracked my upper/mid back and it was AMAZINGGGGGG. now i can see why people like getting massages! i've never had a massage, myself, but one day i'd like to try.
walked across the street and had lunch at nijiya market after that.
$6 chirashi bowl, so goooood! usually, i get tea (at taste tea) after yoga but i was... hungry. this was so tasty, i might make nijiya part of my regular saturday routine. :9 kani, ikura, ahi, shiso, ginger, rice. can a gal ask for more?! also, you can eat inside the grocery store where it's air conditioned! super like the air conditioning after yoga. ;)
went to catch the bus at ala moana but first, stopped at the post office to pick up the new peanuts stamps for my mom. the ice skating one is my favorite.
eating sakura mochi at the bus stop.
i'm like fat fuu, can't help it! love to eat!
i like to hang out outside when i get home. absorb some sunlight and enjoy the breeze.
hello hamstrings! since i'm all stretched out from the morning yoga, i can do all kinds of amazing things in the afternoon. it's that perfect hour when you've recovered enough from the morning but are still bendy. by sunday morning i'm too achy to do crazy cool yoga poses!
after that i rinse all the sweat out of my mat. because i am a microbiologist. and i know what normal flora is.
and then i shower myself off.
and then laundry.
and then homework. and guava toast (with spreadcheese). and coffee.
this is why i need to exercise #alwayseating
and then bed time! i know... only 7:30pm. but it's late for me!
off to work at 11pm.
i'm a hematologist, and this is my new baby, sysmex xn!
i'm also in charge of blood banking when there's only two techs on
yeah, i'm ballin, keeping an AB platelet in stock.
when i'm at work, i'm all about the socks.
i get off work at 7am.
then i get home at shower off the hospital germs. because i'm a microbiologist. ;)
(if i had a home incinerator and could burn my clothes like in gattaca...)
on sundays i hide out in my room after work... (#fuckyeahblackoutcurtains)
i drink coffee and play records while i take my computer down and back up all my hard drives.
and then finally another short and blissful nap until the sun crawls out and even my dark curtains can't stop me from seizing the day.
and that's what my weekends are like.
