Woe! I have been selected to test for my yellow belt in kung fu, but I can't make the test date because it's opening night of The Glass Menagerie :( :(
I love theater a great deal. The only advantage regular jobs have over theater is that you can usually miss a day of drudgery at the office without feeling like you're cheating yourself, ruining the work of at least a dozen other people, and possibly letting down the entire world. Of course, the fact that boring and meaningless office jobs DESTROY MY SOUL kind of balances that out, so theater it is.
Oh well - I guess I'm doing kung fu for the the sake of doing kung fu, not so I can wear pretty colored belts. I don't know if there are any alternatives to the test date yet because I didn't have a chance today to tell the teacher I couldn't make it. We'll see what happens.
In good kung fu news, a beginners' weapons class is starting soon, so I will have a chance to start learning some really cool-looking moves. In bad news, it will cost an extra $25 a month. Time to start searching the house for more eBayable goods.
Today's lesson really kicked my arse. In fact, my buttocks are right sore from all the kicking. I thought I was going to pass out several times.
I have updated my links page ...
