So that gives me a plan for when I want to finish things. That's kind of nice.
And, completely out of PS order, I now have a bright orange belt. (AR, you should appreciate that!) The test was pretty easy and I didn't make any mistakes. It was just me testing for my belt and two Tiny Tigers (kids 4-9) doing midterm tests for their second dan black belt, so it went really quickly. I was mostly worried about my board break, actually, since I had seriously bruised up my elbow and forearm with a mishit Wednesday during pickup, and knew that if I did the same thing again it would REALLY hurt, but it went fine and I broke it first try. Now, come Monday, I'll have a new form, new 1-steps, and new self defense moves to learn! Yay! And, I don't have to double wrap my belt anymore - at least not until black belt which is WAYY far in the future! Double yay!
I was going to post this last night, but we opened Barrymore last night as well. While I'm not a heavy drinker anyway, when you barely eat anything all day, what you did eat was burned off by a physical test, and then drink two rather heavy handed cocktails (a vanilla lemonade and a blue hawaiian), you end up very sleepy and more than a little drunk rather quickly. Gotta love that bartender. The show is good, really short, and I'm working on the heel flap for the second of Mom's socks because of it.
