Month: January 2013

Hot

So I’ve taken the plunge and signed up for a 30 day Bikram Yoga challenge. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you probably would have noticed that I’m a Bikram fan. I’ve been practicing on and off for about 4 years now, always flirting with the idea of committing to the hot room for a solid month. But social life and other commitments got in the way (aka excuses) but this year I’m in. And to make matters worse, I’ve boasted to pretty much everyone I know that I’ve signed up for 3o classes in 30 days so if I fail, everyone is going to know about it. Motivation? Yes!

Because of this huge commitment The Kids Are In Trouble may be a little quiet over the next 30 days. I suspect when I’m not in class I’ll be huddled up in a corner weeping… or some other kind of dramatic overreaction. I will check in weekly to keep you updated on my progress though, and you can hit me up on Twitter or Instagram for more frequent updates.

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”  – Martha Graham

Wildfox nails it again with their AW13 collection, We’re The Kids in America. All I can say is…

“Cher’s saving herself for Luke Perry” 
“My plastic surgeon doesn’t want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose.” “Well there goes your social life.”
“You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.”

I could keep going all day!

2013

Hello world, hello 2013. I’ve been a little bit absent lately but with good reason. I’ve given this blog a makeover – a new name and a new look and I couldn’t be happier with the result (Thank you J, for all your help and for listening to my constant whinging!)

The new name, The Kids Are In Trouble, is taken from the opening line of The National’s Conversation 16, from the album High Violet. An album that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with. I won’t go into the reasons behind the change too much except to say that the new name and minimalist look resonate with me much more than The Perfect Symmetry ever did.

So here’s to a new year and a new start.
