Us? Stressed?


Today, my critical theory professor announced that he has arranged for our class to have a private yoga and meditation session to "Calm us the !@#% down."

He said that. No joke.


He told us that we are wound too tight, we need to relax because we, his students, are way too stressed out.For such a smart guy with all his Phd's and credentials, it doesn't seem like it has occurred to him that our stress is his fault. Our burning, bloodshot eyes from hours and hours of reading teeny tiny print, our highlighter ink stained fingers, our severe mental confusion of the incomprehensible material is all his fault. I don't think he gets it. Ces't la vie. A free yoga session from the top instructor in the state instead of 6 hours of dense reading?

Sounds good to me.

Julie that picture is a little scary. It stresses me out I think. just kidding I hope you can relax. School is so stressful I still need to do more schooling to get my masters, not excited. What are you going to school for? Oh By the way I don't think our blog is working our your blog. Our address is threesmiths-smith.blogspot.com. I hope everything will get a little better soon. wish you both the best during this tough time.

That is the sickest picture I have ever seen... and confession... I have done yoga before and it is freaking hard! I am not limber, but it all is okay when you get to sleep for the last 10 minutes of class, now that is my kind of working out!

Where do I even start with your kick ass qualities?! :) I would have to say your innate intuition, sensitivity, love & acceptance of others, outlandish talent and creativity, drop dead gorgeous looks, ability to always be grounded, you're wise beyond your years and your dependability as a fabulous friend! And, hello! I'm your favorite, which makes that a kick ass quality right there!
