I hate that word CHILLAXING. But I continue to use it coz it makes me laugh at its ridiculousness.
I think I'm gonna kill myself on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I was just super exhausted by the end of my day yesterday, and my schedule looked like this:
5.30am: Wake Up
6.00am: Rickshaw pick up (it's only a 10min walk to the shala, but I'm chicken shit when it's dark out, especially walking alone as a single female. So I'll just pay the 20 Rupees, or €0.33 for the worry-free 2-minute morning rickshaw ride)
6.15am-ish (that's 6.30am-ish shala time): Start Practice
8.15am-ish (that's 8.00am-ish shala time): Have a coconut at Guru's (or two)
9.00am: Shower and do laundry
11.00am (shala time): Chanting class
12.00pm: Rest, Email, Skype, Tweet, Facebook
3pm: Rest, Email, Skype, Tweet, Facebook
4.30pm (shala time): Sanskrit class
5.15pm (shala time): Bhagavad Gita + Hatha Yoga Pradipika class
6.30pm: Rest, Email, Skype, Tweet, Facebook, Blog
10pm: Sleep (I should really be sleeping earlier...)
Hence, I will have ZERO interest in socialising on these days, I'm sure.
Now that today is completely free after practice, I'm looking forward to having a nap, then going through some of my Sanskrit notes. Yes, I am going to be the geeky student who will be practicing my Sanskrit writing. (Did I mention a couple months ago that I started some beginners' Dutch classes in Amsterdam too? Now I'm aiming for beginners' Sanskrit here. By the end of this life, I'm gonna become a master linguist of beginner's level languages.) (No, not a cunning one. BAHAHAHA!)
I had zero interest in socialising again today, but then (OvO) tweeted and asked if I had met my daily coconut quota yet. COCONUT WITH OWL?!? HELL YEAH!!! (I forgot to mention, we were sat right next to each other during Sanskrit class yesterday). :) ...So that will be my one and only mission later today. :)
SUPER HUNGRY post-practice today, so I got a Paper Masala Dosai. Don't mess with this big boy. The masala in it refers to a scoop of potato masala they put right in the middle. Authana's masala is THE BOMB. That's my requisite "black coffee, no sugar" with breakfast. The waiter looked at me like I was hardcore mad with my coffee order. "Black Coffee means NO MILK?! ...And NO SUGAR?!?? Sugar on the side, no? ...NO?!?"
