Lizzie983's Journal, 14 April 2013

What a wonderful day! Just back home from a grill party with Italian friends, the first BBQ of the season! The baby boy of some friends of mine was there as well, my DP, my good friends met here in Germany. 
This morning I skyped with my Dutch friend and my granny in Italy. 
I have eaten lots of meat, maybe a bit too much, but have avoided bread and sauces. I made bread on the grill, it turned out delicious this time! We had lamb, chicken, pork, steak, sausages... I relaxed so much, and have been really in need for that after the stressful week I had. I have been so nervous and anxious for the job interview!! I really hope I got that job, speaking with the research group there made me so enthusiastic about the project I might end up working on. 
It's springtime here in Germany! It's possible to wear on only a tshirt without freezing, and there's no more snow around. Flowers are blooming, plenty of people at the park and eating icecream. It's my favourite season since I live here. 
I am feeling so positive and more self confident that in the past few months. Yesterday we went climbing, and I was not scared at all! It's such a nice feeling!! Other times I have been frustrated cause I was not able to overcome that temporary fear... just fear of not being qble to climb. Yesterday it was better, and I have been able to enjoy those hours at the climbing gym very much. Muscles are only a  little bit sore today, it's a nice feeling as well! 
I met a yoga teacher on Friday, she's a friend of a friend. She's teaching yoga in a place close to where I live (4 min walking) and I am considering starting again to practise yoga next autumn. I had to stop, when my mom died, cause every time I ended up crying so much that it became embarassing going to yoga class. I am also considering attending a "real" yoga school in order to be able to teach yoga in the future. I would love to do that, and in case I get the job, I am sure I live here in Germany for at least the next 4 years, enough to attend a school, I think. 
Maybe it's better to start with a school to teach aerobics or dancing, that might take a shorter time and it might help me to understand if I really like teaching sports. I love teaching physics and mathematics, don't know yet about yoga or aerobics. 
Time to take a shower and watch some tv serieses (we have been watching "The Nanny" the past few days). 

Life is good!

Glad to hear all is well. I like to watch Criminal Minds and Chopped.

Don't know both series! I'll try to watch them! Thanks for your suggestion! "The Nanny" is a 20 years old series, I used to watch it as a child and was my favorite! :)

I used to watch it too. As far as old series I love The Wonder Years or Quantum Leap. Have watched those?

When my dad died, i was balling all the time. That was in 2005, every year was better, now all good, just good to remember him. Don't know about teaching yoga. I love taking it, wouldn't want to teach it LOL. I did enjoy teaching aerobics and step aerobics because I could get a great workout in at the same time. It was fun. If I taught Yoga, you have to teach yoga and can't be "in the Yoga moment" so much when teaching... make sense. Just depends on what your motivatin for teaching is. Very different from teaching school. Try it, you might LOVE IT! I took on substitute teaching and do science and absolutely LOVED it.

Lizzy, good point! while teaching yoga it's not possible to practise... Didn't consider that! And you're right, trying to understand the motivation why I feel like teaching sports, might help me to understand which one is the best to teach. And also replacing a teacher might be a good idea. Maybe I could volunteer to be a yoga and aerobics teacher for friends of mine, to see from which one I get the best! Thanks a lot!

iamachris, no, I don't know also the latter ones you mentioned (ormaybe in Italy they changed the names of the shows, it's pretty common!).
