There doesn't seem to be much energy around here today. I try and keep my negative energy to myself and don't comment on how I'm feeling about things so its been interesting to hear other people's comments about how they are feeling and where they are at.

My roommate wrote an email titled, "Breaking up with Bikram" over the weekend, which was very funny and pretty much says it all.

Sigh....... I have such a love / hate relationship with this whole experience.
Anyway, today (Tuesday) is a whole 'nother day :-)
