Appetite

hej hej, darling!

This is timely because I recently started listening to Beyonce's new album, Lemonade. 

FYI, I listened to it here:

Recently I have been having a lot of open conversations with people, including myself. It has been about a year and a half since I closed off the word for my hermitage. Being out of it feels strange and nice. 

I have been speaking to a lot of people about my wanting to be a social worker, and my difficulty with finding a program that is right for me (or that will accept me). Through speaking to them and practicing being vulnerable, I have been given a lot of support in exploring alternative paths and getting informational interviews with professionals. 

I have been taking vinyasa yoga classes which has really helped me maintain my resilience against crumbling inward. Unlike bikram (the hot one) that I have been familiar with since I was 18, vinyasa presents a different series of poses every time. I haven't quite gotten the hang of it yet, which is actually very liberating, especially in a non-competitive studio. It's important to actively learn things! I know that sounds like a -duh- statement, but I think I have to mention it because I have had a hard time measuring how much I am actively learning at my job. In the physical realm, it's easier for me to see how I'm developing skills (holding poses for longer breaths, the flow of your poses). Maybe I'm a kinesthetic learner, after all.

How are you?
