The Remarkable Paradox: Ashamed About Being Called “Brave”

I posted a picture for Throwback Thursday a couple of weeks ago, and found myself confused by my negative reactions to some of the comments it received. (Even though they were universally positive.) “You are so brave and such an inspiration” “awesome! so brave to open yourself up and such a great release to know you’re…

It’s All About the Shoes

I live in Oakland and usually take the bus across to San Francisco to train. That means my in city commuting options are usually limited to public transportation, taxis, or walking. I walk a LOT. I kill my daily shoes (running shoes, because they fit and support my feet the best) within three months. Shoes,…

In the Shadow of Back Pain

This isn’t what I was intending on putting up. (Getting into Good Routines is partially written and apparently will go up next week.) Instead, let me tell you a story. In 1984, a very little girl didn’t understand that something very big, very scary had just happened. Her family was in a car accident, where…

Balancing strength and flexibility

Oh, writers’ block, how I loathe thee. Correction: internal block, kiss my *BEEP*. I’ve been fighting many blocks lately while finding new ways to grow and throw up self-resistance. To put it in Buddhist terms, I’ve been making friends with my demons. There’s been a fair bit of crying involved in the past week thanks…

It seems that my life is developing to the point where I’m only capable of updating once a month. I’ll try to tell myself that at least there’s some sort of regularity. When we last left off, it was on the verge of doing something monumental in my life in its current state. I left…

The Winds of Change

My life has been changing in a myriad of ways. I’m finally comfortable with all the material changes from the last month, but now the changes are becoming personal. After three seasons with the chorus, I’m still adjusting to not having my Sunday nights taken over by rehearsal. It’s bittersweet- there are people I really…

There and back again

How time flies when you’re having questionable fun. I started the month of February frantically preparing to go on the trip to Costa Rica and perform in the showcase for the Tuesday pole class. I found a fantastic shade to start dying my hair. I discovered that I’m hovering within ten (yes, 10) pounds of…

Looking inside, moving further

Life is pretty funny sometimes. Funny in the “life just kicked me in the stomach, then laughed,” sort of way. The last week threw curve balls my way. Speedbumps, as an ex used to say. From the buying of bootie shorts to revelations of people (past and present) in my life, from complete chaos at…

Thoughts on food

Dear Food, It’s safe to say that I adore you. I know you feel the same way about me. Sometimes, I’m afraid our relationship is a little unhealthy. Can we work on things? You’re an important part of my life, so it would be fantastic if we could reach an understanding, All my love,Jeri —–…

Stuck in my head: inspiration and breaking through labels

My mind has been racing with the formulations of a post since 6 am, when my dear roomie’s moving around woke me up. I can’t begin to describe what a monumental weekend this was. A couple of forays into the dating realm (one more enjoyable than the other, though my dating failures deserve a post…
