"Hi, I'm Lisa and that's exactly what I look like when I type. I'm the author behind Damsel in a Dress, which is a personal blog about being in your twenties with a chronic illness, a terrible chocolate addiction, and a desire to be best friends with Mindy Kaling. When I'm not working on embarrassing personal essays for my blog I can be found curled up on the couch with my heating pad writing Brooklyn Nine-Nine fan-fiction."

IS IT POSSIBLE TO SWEAT TO DEATH? (LISA TRIES MOKSHA YOGA)
Women were changing in front of me, so naturally I bundled up my yoga clothes and went to a back corner to hide while changing. Then I followed Pam into the studio. It felt like I went from St. John’s to the hottest day in Africa when I stepped in the room. “I might die,” I thought to myself. I couldn’t say it out loud because silence is a blessing and speaking is frowned upon in hot yoga. Which I found very difficult, because there’s nothing I love more than making sarcastic remarks about something that other people are passionate about.
