...FINALLY i got sleep. like real, honest to god sleep where i had dreams and everything. it was the first time i'd had a dream since arriving in hawaii. i dont even remember what it was about, but i'm sure it was weird.
they still haven't quite ironed out all the kinks yet. in hawaii, no one has ever really needed a powerful heater, and the contractors didn't really understand 120 degrees. so the first week wasn't hot at all, and last week they wired an elaborate system of 50 little space heaters with extension cords, then the contractors finally installed 18 heaters in the ceiling, but we only have enough power to use 4 at a time. it takes a while to get your biz sent to hawaii. they had the 4 running today and it wasn't that hot, but there is NO air circculation, so the bottom quarter of the mirrors are foggy and it's impossible to breathe while on the floor. it's amazing how just sitting up brings so much fresh air.
things are defintely coming in ebbs and flows. last week was pretty weak sauce, and this week is off to a strong start. my back still hurts all the time, but i was able to grab my feet in camel pose for the first time this morning. and i didn't fall out of a few postures that i usually fall out of. lately we've been having a lot of emmy and Jim from San Diego (i really like him), and bikram has had some potential investors in the back of class for the last week so he's been all chummy and funny while he teaches. i feel like they are just waiting to unleash craig on us to break our fragile selves.
i am still really liking it here. i am even coming to love Mr. Las Vegas, because he is just so ridiculously lame. i will have to snag a picture of him to load on here, because i could never fully capture the full skeezy letcherousness that he embodies with words.
