BELLY DANCING!

So my roommates and I were inspired by Shakira's Hips Don't Lie music video to look into belly dancing a few months back. We found an instructor who does lessons in her basement in Spanish Fork and tonight was my first lesson. OH MY GOODNESS!!! It was definitely the coolest thing I've ever done at BYU. (Maybe that's sad...but oh well!) My hip flexors are sore, my shoulders are tight, I got a charliehorse in my foot - and I had a BLAST!! Why have I never done this before?! We are learning a routine and everything. It is fabulous!! I'm fairly certain that I was born to belly dance!!!! Can't wait for our next lesson!

Yawning...


It's pretty contagious...


No matter how much you may try not to...


You just can't help yawning when you see someone else do it!


So I work in the behavioral coding lab on campus. We spend all of our time watching videos of families interacting with each other. We watch these videos 5 or 6 times each depending on if we're coding the mom and dad, or one of the parents with the kid. Every once in a while, I get a task...with a yawn. And no matter how hard I try, I can't help but yawn each time I see the task! I know it's coming...I mentally prepare myself not to...wait for it...and...YAWN. Guh! It's frustrating! And kind of weird when you think about it. Right now, we are coding wave 2 data. That means the tasks we are watching were made in 2008. That means that a yawn that happened almost three years ago, is making me yawn now, in 2011. Weird? I think so...

And yes, finding the pictures for this post, and writing it, definitely resulted in many yawns...as I'm sure it did for you as you were reading... I did that on purpose. :)
