Back to 100%

Woke up Monday morning and actually felt GOOD. I could breathe just fine without sniffling, I could sing along with the radio on the way to work, I wasn't worn out halfway through one class. It's soooo nice to be back to normal.

We started a new schedule at the dojahng this week. Two classes on Monday, one Tuesday, two Wednesday, two Thursday, one Friday now. The only problem I have with it is that it combines the adults and younger teens (12-15 year olds) again on Wednesdays and Fridays. Tonight was our first combined class and it was so crowded. It felt like there was barely room to move, and I'm not particularly excited about standing in lines to do drills instead of just hitting partners with pads. That might have been just a today thing, though. I understand the instructors wanting to get done a little earlier at night and making sure class sizes are decent, but it was soooo nice to not have to worry about kids in the class. They're just so breakable.

Got almost my whole package put together for my swap buddy. Just waiting on one more thing to get here and then I can send it off. Still working on the Twizzle scarf (almost done) and the afghan (almost have the second strip done). Haven't had a whole lot of motivation to knit lately, though.

Oh, and there seem to be a good chance that my temporary civ job at the 216th might turn into a semi-permanent one, at least until I go to whatever training I end up going to. Not sure yet, but at least Recruiter's back and I don't have to pretend to know anything anymore. Apparently I didn't let too many things go wrong while he was gone, though, which is nice to know. I also finally got all my finances organized (yay for paychecks that come on a regular basis!), I think, which is a huge relief.

Anyway, out for the night. Class this weekend, yay! (Although not looking forward to being on base at 9:00a or earlier for two weeks straight, but oh well.)

How to kill two birds with one stone - you say something like:"hey, I know that you're working on such and such and I'm really interested in it. I would really like to meet with you and ask you some questions. Would it be possible to meet you sometime for lunch or after work and talk about it? You can bring your wife or girlfriend too, if that would make it easier for you." If he makes NO reference to the wife/girlfriend comment WARNING! Stick with the just friends/business attitude until he tells you directly and succinctly whether he's unattached or not.

I just told him that I'd really like to pick his brain about his job sometime, and suggested lunch as an opportune time. He agreed, but we haven't set a time or day yet. Might try for sometime next week, but gotta figure out how work schedules mesh first. We'll see.
