1. I need new yoga clothes.
  2. Ugh.. has this outfit always been THIS tight?

  3. Fuck it, I’m at yoga!  It’s all about getting fit and relaxing and accepting yourself FOR WHO YOU ARE.
  4. Wow, that girl has a really nice back. How does someone even get a back that nice?
  5. She is such a yogi.
  6. I wish I could be a yogi.
  7. Not the lululemon wearing yogi but like the colorful headband, moon-phase tattoo, hair to your knees type of yogi.
  8. I could wear colorful headbands and grow my hair out! …and get a zen tattoo…

  9. Okay, maybe I’ll aim for lululemon type of yogi for now.  It’s like a stepping stone. A gateway into yogi-dom.
  10. I should go after class to get a new outfit.
  11. Shit but I don’t get paid until next week.  I’ll charge it. Duh.
  12. Oh!  Class is starting.

  18. This is supposed to be a resting pose?
  19. FOR WHO?!
  20. Oh, probably for nice back girl…
  21. But I mean seriously, who’s ever seen a dog even do this?
  22. I definitely haven’t.

  23. If I took a survey of everyone in the room, I bet no one has ever seen a dog do this.
  24. Just looked and there’s 18 people in the room, and I bet none of them have seen a dog in this position.
  25. Oops.  Yoga instructor said to “relax your body and clear your mind.”  I think she was talking to me.

  36. Ow, nope.  My leg definitely can not face in that direction while my hips face this way.
  37. That’s literally impossible.
  38. Okay clearly it’s not impossible because nice back girl isn’t seeming to have a problem.
  39. Screw her and her stupid perfect back.
  40. Balance poses.
  41. Balance I can do.
  42. I did dance for like two years when I was younger.
  43. Why did I ever quit dance? I was like, a really good dancer.  I could have been famous.
  44. Mental note to self: ask mom why I stopped dance.
  45. Fuck.
  46. Balancing is hard.
