In life, there is such a thing as a “non-sexual crush,” which is essentially an umbrella. Under this umbrella is the all-important “intellectual crush”. And today I’d like to add a new category. I think I’ll call it a “divine crush.” What’s this all about?
I have a divine crush on my Wednesday night flow yoga teacher. He’s tall, lanky (very bendy, you can imagine), a hippie. He’s cute enough, I suppose. You can tell he’s full of tranquility and calmness. Very endearing. These are all good qualities, sure. But where it’s really at is in the spirituality of it all. Not only do I leave feeling absolutely amazing, tall, and physically fit… but I leave feeling so mentally sound. Now I realize that I generally leave um… EVERY yoga class feeling this way but he’s the only guy teacher so he’s an easy target. Any guy that spends an hour and a half making me feel that way is definitely going to find himself as the apple of Jenny’s eye, that’s for sure. Mmmmyogateachergurummmmmm.
In other news. Plans are pretty much official now, so, some of you know and some of you are hearing it here first: I’m moving back to St. Louis in January 2009. A whole new chapter of my life is going to be opening up and I really couldn’t be more excited about it. I’m not ready to reveal all the plans just yet, but I’ve figured out what it is I actually WANT to do for the rest of my life and St. Louis is where I’m going to start.
In the wake of this great place of stability in which I’ve found myself, I’ve also found that my attitude towards St. Louis has changed too. It doesn’t represent the younger, more naive, more dependent Jenny anymore. Now, it’s the new horizon. The Gateway to the Rest of My Life. It’s going to be good. I have to thank Evansville for what it’s done for me. I’ve changed for the better, and I wouldn’t have gotten here if it hadn’t been for this city. I’ve learned so much about myself. But in January, I have to go. Evansville, I discovered, was just here to serve a purpose in my life. It fulfilled it’s duty and it’s time to move on.
Again I remember the quote about preferring the journey to the destination, and I think that this just might be the most anticipated journey for me yet.
