A direct result of me getting to muck around with weapons is an improved mood. It's just fun, and you can't stay mad when you're having fun.
Side note: if ever I gain enough funds to buy a house (HAH!), there will need to be a basement with a roof high enough that I can throw my staff around while training. Of course, it would take some kind of miracle in order to get a house at this stage, but still. I will need a basement with high ceilings. For weapons.
Today also marks day two of Screw you, Failure. Yesterday was day one. It was weight-training day, which I did. Sunday should have been day one, but I was wallowing in a stew of my own self-pity. It was not as bad as it sounds. There was chocolate. Anyway, day two of Screw you, Failure is running day. I won't be running long or far. I have only the time between work and training to run, and taking into account travel time (over an hour thanks to public transit), I will only be running for a maximum of half an hour, if that. Then I'm off to training. It's the first week back with the regular crew, and I'm really excited to go back; as much for the friends as for the punching and kicking of things.
I'm going to be wiped tonight.
Speaking of martial arts, Saturday (yes, the same day as the stupid run which made me angry), I taught my women's only classes. It's four hours of teaching epic things, and I love it a great deal. My women's kickboxing class is full up. I'm a little saddened to see that the kung fu class is not so full. That's the class we get to play with weapons in, and I do wish more people would sign up.
Oh, while I think of it, if you're a woman in the Ottawa area and feel like taking a martial arts class that's less intense than kickboxing, give kung fu a go. I teach out of Carleton U, but you don't have to be a student to take the class. Here's the registration link if you're interested:
THIS IS THE REGISTRATION LINK.
If you're interested in joining our coed class, I highly recommend coming to our Tuesday and Thursday classes. We're at St. Gregory at the moment, and we're doing a free week. Contact my Sifu, Sifu John Hum for more information, and drop by to see what it's all about. Also, you get to see just how terrible a student I am.
THIS IS HOW YOU CONTACT MY SIFU.
Honestly, signing up is one of the best things I ever did.
Alright, I'm fast running out of brain power, and must preserve at least some for writing today, so I'll sign off here. Have a lovely day,
