Exams...and GRADUATING!

The second half of the course flew by! Lots of fun, and then some revision :-/ We also did a session on thinking of your life mission. I kinda stole Ghandi's quote, but it fitted well to describe wanting to save the world and have as big of a positive impact as possible; to BE it and DO it!

Well even the ones of us that thought we wouldn’t get nervous about the exam, may have been a little bit. It was fine though and demonstrated that we knew our stuff. I was chuffed to be one of two who got 100%, well 99.5% due to one of the questions being written wrong so we all made the same mistake, so technically doesn’t count (she says with a big cheesey grin). We had a day of celebration and thanks, including our awesome public class, which was a yoga tapestry; all of us taught a part of it. It went brilliantly well and everyone was chuffed and relieved. I had been more nervous about this than the exam. Teaching and using the right cues and less filler words is actually quite hard! We all got on fine though and the feedback from the public was great.

We all had our last snack time together and parted ways until the evening plans of pizza and songs. Lisa and I scooted off to the tattoo parlour we had been recommended by a girl at SamadiToo. We had in mind what we wanted, we had seen pictures and I drew out what I had in mind. We waited for almost 2 hours for the apprentice artist to turn up, it was like the wait before you do a presentation and you just want to get started and finish! She eventually turned up and after deciding on size, I was up first! It surprised me that it didn’t actually hurt anywhere near as much as I thought it would. After my turn Lisa had hers done, and we drove off very pleased with the results!

Due to being so long at the tattoo parlour, we missed the pizza gathering at SamadiToo to say goodbye to people that were leaving the enxt day L Lisa and I said our goodbyes when she dropped me off, and she headed home the next day. I met a few others at Crate the next morning to say goodbye, it was really sad to see these amazing people who I had just spent nearly a month with, going back to all their homes dotted all over the world; I knew it was only a temporary goodbye before we all caught up again sometime in the future and we all now have homestays all over the world to travel too!
