over that proverbial rainbow
March 24, 2004

I was in the shittiest mood during the past couple of days. Faux-pas included:

Bawling out my v. good B. who so didn’t deserve it.
Being v. v. irritable and huffing and puffing around work (includes stomping).
Being a general bitch to pretty much everybody.
Near-crying at work many times.
Crying at home for no apparent reason.
Wanting to kick someone. Anyone.
I really have nothing to attribute any of this to, and I think that that may be the thing that made me so v. annoyed with everything.

So I’m feeling much better now, which I think actually has to do with exercise. I went to my first gung fu lesson last night to discover that not only am I not a badass, but I’m horrible with coordination. If you’ve ever tried to learn dancing from someone by just watching, you might be able to feel my pain when I say that I looked like a dumbass. I’m okay with it, though, as I’m assuming that that’s what one is going to look like when trying to pick up a bodily art form like martial arts after a 12 year hiatus.

Thankfully, I remember most of the stuff I learned last night, and I will be going back tomorrow night for the next lesson. Tonight at the gym, I hope to practice a bit on the movement and the different steps taught to me while trying to look less like an idiot.

Since the lesson seemed to go well, and I liked the instructors, I’m thinking that I am indeed going to sign up for this dojo. I haven’t even seen the cost, which could be devastating, but I’m thinking it’s going to be rather inexpensive, if they’re going by the prices other places are fronting when accepting new recruits. Will let you know when that happens as well.

Life on the home front could be less boring, if I was actually into trying. The trip for Australia has been planned, and I have gotten the vacation time to go at the end of August. The unfortunate thing is that I have 3 really really good friends leaving for lands abroad at the same time, just days before I return to the states. This could very well be a problem. Most likely, once they leave this summer, I will rarely see them again, as when they return to the states, they’re all planning on moving to New England. I haven’t a clue where I’ll be at that time, but I just hope we don’t all lose each other in life and whatnot. I know that sometimes communication just breaks up, and that isn’t necessarily bad, it’s just that these 3 people have been such huge parts of my life for the past 4 + years. They’re the center on which friendships with other people stand.

I guess we’ll just have to have a kickass party before I leave for OZ. *Sigh*
Anyone? Bueller?
