    I am super proud of myself. I set an alarm for 8am and was front and center for the Saturday 9am kickboxing class. I don't always manage it, but I do like having that accomplished early in the day. Workouts: 4/3 I just found out that there is a bar in town where you can THROW AXES. If any of you visit Atlanta, we will go THROW AXES .

    Okay, afternoon karate practice done (that's actually workout 3/3, so this is going to be an over and above week). I hadn't meditated yet today, so I sat down in the martial arts room and did a meditation after my workout like some kind of Shaolin master, aw yeah

    I'll say it again, most gyms are WAY TOO UPTIGHT about requiring clothes for workouts. This week's episode of Reading Glasses podcast is all about book recommendations for gifts, btw.

    Wow, your exams aren't for two weeks? Ours are finishing up. It's a ghost town around campus this morning (few/no exams on Friday). Oh god, this phrase causes me pain and guilt

    We've made it to Friday, assassins. I've got time blocked off for a gym workout/practice session. Brought my karate uniform since they advised us noobs to wear it during practice to get used to it before the test. Tomorrow is kickboxing class, and Sunday afternoon is a test prep clinic; my understanding is they'll focus on the self-defense moves ("one-steps") that I'm still slightly shaky on. Looking through the martial arts related NFA quests, because I'm all about the XP. Any inspiration for this Monk quest? "Choose a motto or saying to focus on during training for the next week. To complete this quest, choose a motto to focus on during training for the next week. Take notes about any changes/ideas this focused training gives you!" Favorite training mottos, anyone?

    IT SO DOES. It's so hard to have patience and faith that it'll pass. <3

    Karate class done. Got the nod on my run-through of my forms for my belt test, but there are some self-defense moves on the test that I didn't get the word about until tonight. There is a special class to drill those on Sunday afternoon, though, and I at least got a picture of the written notes so I can try to practice them or at least commit them a little bit better to memory before then. Got my karate uniform. IT'S BLACK. I'm very happy about that.

    Update: Wrote a *little* bit over lunch break. Like, a few lines of outlining, identified some scenes and plot points that need to appear. But I did say that small steps counted on this goal, so I'm counting it.

    It was just for like a day and a half -- some kind of system failure? Very unusual. I mean, you *do* know that my country is sort of on the verge of collapse, though, so this sort of infrastructure catastrophe is going to become pretty common.

    Monday update! Went to the martial arts room for a workout, heavy bag and practicing my belt test. This is likely to be my routine for the next two weeks (test is a week from Friday). There were several macho beefy dudes doing boxing practice in the martial arts room, but I staked out a small corner with my bag. I enjoyed seeing them hug it out after sparring. (I had been thinking of setting a numerical goal for "practice for belt test," but I'm nervous enough about it that I feel pretty motivated, so I think I'm good there.) There has been a boil water advisory in effect for the last couple of days, and I didn't think about the impact on my workout; even the filtered water fountains were taped over. Toughed it out and got a canned club soda after getting back to my desk. omg so thirsty Presently brainstorming something healthy to throw into the slow cooker when I get home. Workouts 1/3

    For your post-finals entertainment, it occurs to me that I should make sure you know there's DLC for AC Black Flag where you play as Adewale and go to Haiti to fuck up the slave trade with a machete.

    I wrapped up Big Mouth and season 3 of Peaky Blinders. Truly a productive day!
