Bats 2 Janae 0

More days of bats and me screaming. I cannot live this way. They love the dark corners of roof and good lord they keep pooping! I’m going to pray loud and hard for an answer because these squeals of pure terror is annoying and ruins my street cred among my students. Here’s some more bad news. I’m two seconds from going to the barbershop in town and telling him to shave my head. I took out my crotchet braids and tomorrow am getting my hair braided by a fellow chocolate volunteer. God bless her. But even with her blessed fingers, I know she won’t always be here. What am I going to do when she leaves in a year? The humidity and dust here are breeding grounds for me to grow some dreads. My hair is super curly and knotty. I feel like every inch I grow I lose in knots I’m pulling out. I can say I’m so grateful my new family didn’t interrogate me about my head. I’m simply not in the mood. My mother would lose her mind if I climbed off the plane with a low fade. Sigh… Decisions decisions. 

Anyways yoga class went well! I love tag teaming with my sitemate in Spanish directions. Plus more people came! First class was five people including me. This class had six! Which was wonderful even with our last minute location change. The women are remembering the pose names and how to get into them. One woman in particular gets so happy when I tell her she’s doing a great job. I can’t wait to see her progress. I brought her pictures of bigger yogis to encourage her the best yogis aren’t skinny. Yoga is for everyone.
