After tonight, I will never complain about San Francisco being cold again (well, that’s probably not true, but…). I went to Bikram Yoga for the first time with Nicole. For those unfamiliar with Bikram Yoga, it is a set series of postures done over 1 1/2 hours in 100 plus degree temperatures. It may be one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. But I feel great now and I think I’m going to go back tomorrow. I went to a ballet class in the city on Saturday (which was absolutely insane compared to my normal proper ballet classes), but this was so much more of a workout. I think I’m going to try to do a little of both while I’m out here to make up for the fact that I sit a desk for 8 hours a day.
In other news, Ben got his placement for next year. He will be teaching at Tarpon Springs High School in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Apparently known for it’s Greek culture, TS was also a big sponging community back in the day. Hence, Ben’s mascot –> a sponger. I can’t decide how that compares to our high school mascot – The Dreadnaughts (it’s a war ship). He’s very excited to know where he will be and is already busy apartment hunting. He knows that he will have Level 4 (Senior) Lit, but he isn’t sure what the rest of his schedule will be yet.
