Today is my 4th day of yoga class. Didn't imagine I would sweat so much or that I'd be so sore the following day. It's a good compliment to the sort of hard and singular movements of weightlifting. However, I'm faced with my life long challenge of stretching. Those toes are going to be touched before I graduate. Mark my words. Speaking of which, still haven't found a job and I'm racing against my July 31st visa expiration to get a work visa. It's an arduous process where I'm constantly changing my resume and thinking "I mean, I could do that job". Entering the workforce remains priority number one as Spring unfolds in Beijing
