Oops, I seem to have left this garden untended. It’s become overgrown with… well, nothing actually. Apologies blogland, I’ve had busy times, my new job is hugely intense and the internet access there is so watered down it’s ridiculous. The person opposite me also has this cat ‘helper’ thing (like clippy) on her computer, it keeps miaowing all the time – I have kitty overload!
In short I’m trying to learn the things the previous guy has built up over 8 years, in two weeks. My brain is completely full of stuff - it’s just a good job I have my various outlets for relieving stress and pent-up tension. Training’s been good, very technical and very hard work. My new dobok is finally starting to resemble 100% cotton and not cast iron, and I’ve replaced the trousers with a smaller size, these ones actually stay up!
I’ve started taking care of myself a bit better too now (much to the amusement of some!), there’s no point dropping loads of weight and looking like a tramp. I’m really looking forward to going to Seni (2 weeks now!) and seeing what catches my eye. It’ll be nice to pick out some good looking clothes from some of the stands and not have to worry about the size! My sense of fashion is woeful though, and I often need guidance so I don’t pick something horrible .
It’s still way too early for my liking, so I’ll wrap up until my brain works again. First thing isn’t so good for me, I need someone with some kind of magic wand to zap me two or three times in a row to get some umph in me. But lots more updates from now on! I have limitless inspiration!
I’ll leave you with the Snake River Consipracy cover of The Cure’s “Love Song”. It’s quite different from the original but she gives it good feeling, and the lyrics are great (Yeah, it’s one of those AMVs)
