Hello again. Most people have forgotten about me or never knew me in the first place. That's fine. Whatever.
What made me want to visit every now and then . . . well, a lot of my taekwondo memories are posted here. I like to go through my old posts and remember those days . . .
The good old days.
-leans on bamboo cane- BACK IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS, GRASSHOPPA . . .
Anyway, those of you who know me may have heard that my life wasn't going so great. It's better now, though. High school still sucks, but it's high school and it will always suck. (I look forward to college, though, when what you learn is actually USEFUL and you can focus on a specific topic. I want a computer science degree or maybe a degree in astrophysics or astonomy.) My teachers insist I need counseling (???) and treat me like I'm super fragile. I'm not. There have been so many times where I've been broken inside, and it felt like the world was over, but I've always stood up again. I just want my teachers to leave me alone and stop concerning themselves with my personal problems. Majority of the people at my high school despise me or bully me, but I have some very good friends, so it's not completely terrible.
Taekwondo has been going a lot better. I fell down a lot, but I got back up (I mean that both figuratively and literally - I fell quite a bit in sparring). I started training as an instructor again, and that being said, don't expect to see me a whole lot. I said "visiting" for a reason. I have to know everyone's requirements, not just my own, so that means I'm going to be practicing a lot. In addition to that, guess what, less than a year left until my black belt test. I'm not nervous, though. :D
. . . I'M FREAKING OUT.
Also, my next poomsae is Koryo and I can't do a double side kick to save my life. The quality of your double side kick determines the quality of the rest of the form, so it's vital that you can at least do it well, if not perfectly.
I'm not sure how to wrap this up, so I'm just going to call this sentence my conclusion.
