|I'm slowly filling you in again...

I like the person I've become over the past year. As screwed up as I still am, I've worked out so many things and added so much promise to this life of mine. |
A lot has been happening, so much of which I've forgotten to write of. This journal is a sort of time capsule for me: I write it down here and have a record of how things got to be the way they are, or the way they will be. Years from now, though, this summer will be a blur because this journal was a blur. Others' lives have been like this and now it's my turn to experience the whirl.
I've written scarcely a thing about martial arts. I've been going to Gene's Sunday morning classes with Ari, trying very hard to learn Kata I. Last week it finally clicked and I was able to do it all the way through without screwing up. It felt so wonderful! Now I'm on my way to improving the moves (as Gene said, martial arts is a wonderful opportunity to be obsessive-compulsive). So yeah, I've been looking forward to that every week and Gene seems very impressed at how well the Kata looked yesterday. That's always good to know :)
I (and sometimes Ari) have been cooking dinner for the family for quite a few nights. This is so relaxing and it feels good to know that I/we are capable of making such yummy food.
I'm still re-learning how to write good entries and make them flow. It's been so long since I've done it regularly enough. But those were two things that have gone un-told for a very long time so I guess it's a start.
