My Assignment I Gave Myself

The Assignment: 100 Words About Yoga

Title: I’ve Started Yoga

The Words: 

Specifically hot yoga, and now that I’ve experienced it I can’t imagine doing it cold.  I go here: Moksha Yoga Downtown.  I think it’ll be good for my head, plus I can’t argue with something 5000+ years old.  

You shouldn’t talk during the hour long class and I’m terrible at relaxing, there’s nothing to focus on except your breath, so your world gets small and really, I’ve never thought about breathing before even though it’s always happening.  I’m a shallow breather.  

I’m also crooked.  Not like, “I wanna swindle ya” crooked, but physically, from always being bent over my laptop.  You’re probably reading this online so don’t be like me, sit up straight!

This morning I told my teacher she’s the most bendy person I know, because she is.

 

TOTAL WORD COUNT: 128

(watch Jan. 20 – “Live at 5” for why I’m doing this)

January 20 – Live at Five

At Cherry Beach talking about things I have to do, about yoga, and some babbling.

This is a very simple episode, hardly any editing because I’m taking it back to scratch to figure out a more efficient system of doing this.

The 100-word-assignments are in preparation for when I go to the Olympics and have to write 100-word article each day for the paper Vancouver 24hrs.

Thanks for tuning in today, TTYT!

Lunch and Blog Plotting with Iain

It’s thanks to him my blog functions as well as it does.  We’re beefing up my blog, click here to kinda see the design.

He’s helped me since last summer, click here for the time we finally met IRL back in October.  If you need web help, IA or UX you need Iain.

Tomorrow I’ll Be Looking Official

With my new intro logo, thanks Greg!  

151 Front Street

I’ve got a thing for this place:

Built in 1954 for telegraph equipment (I’m so glad I wasn’t born back then) and today is one of North America’s most connected buildings, called a “carrier hotel“.

Over 150 telecommunications companies are in here including the big guys Bell, Rogers and Telus, and there’s very high level of security; you need an escort to go to the Meet-Me-room, so cool.  

Anyone wanna take me on a tour please? 

Here’s their website.
