Can I just be honest and say I am DREADING grocery shopping tonight? Dreading it. But I'll give it a whirl and hopefully the shelves won't be completely wiped out by the time I hit the store somewhere around 5 p.m.
In other news, I tested for my green belt in Muay Thai last night. My official photographer, Mr. Helen, couldn't have done a worse job. Honestly, the man has many abilities but taking pictures is not one of them. At all. Pretty much every photo he took of me, my back was to him, I was down on the floor on an up and down move, or not punching or kicking, and most of them are super blurry. Siiiiigh! Here is one of me lined up listening to the instructions from the Sensei as we are about to begin. You will notice he had a clear shot at me because I was the only student in the entire test who did not have a partner.
I'm not sure why people don't like partnering up with me but they don't. Being the odd man out is a problem I have constantly, even in classes, but in a class you're not being watched like a hawk by every Sensei in the dojo. So, pretty much my test sucked big time because we had to do quite a few partner drills. One of the Sensei's finally stepped in to partner up with me because, really, they had no choice. But it sucked and it also dragged up a bunch of emotions in me that I am going to spend the day working through.
In any case, in the end, I still got my green belt, partner or no. The one time I wish Mr. Helen would have attempted a photo, he chose to shoot a video lol! So here I am getting my green belt.
Have a great weekend and if you're on the east coast of the USA, stay safe!
