The Evening Report...

Well the sketchbooks were a smash hit with my friends at life drawing. I knew they would like them but they just kept raving and raving. This is a fun little hobby that could seriously be getting out of hand but I really enjoy making them. I'd like to take a real book binding class. Kamille had a book that showed bunches of really neat binding and my jaw just dropped. I wouldn't even know how to break those down to begin, but darn if I wouldn't like to attempt to learn.

Kickboxing tonight was GREAT. We did a bunch of crazy lunges with rather heavy weights so I know my legs and butt are really going to be feeling it tomorrow. For upper body I went with the 5 pound weights again and though they really felt heavy (and duh, I'm used to 3 lbs,) it wasn't as bad as last time. I wonder how long before I graduate to 8 lbs. Maybe I should give myself at least until March, eh?

We also practiced doing spinning back kicks and WOW will I be feeling that but it's nice that everything is starting to feel more fluid. They're also a lot easier when you have a target to aim at.

We went through basic forms 1 and 2 again (sigh.) I really want to get up to 5 and 6 but every time we have somebody new we seem to drop back to 1 and 2 again. It's going to take FOREVER to get all the way to 18. I think Sabina knows I am getting antsy about it. I guess we are setting up those neural patterns so I will be able to do them the rest of my life, the same way I can sit down at a piano (with my bad form,) and still play old recital pieces.

I really want to practice 3 and 4 since I need to get those passed off soon. New belt coming up. No, I don't have anything nearly as intensive as my nephew with his karate but I do take this seriously.

RRARR and all that.

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.

    In no particular order: 10. So?!! Well, the very short version is, I didn't get the job from Pixar. 9. Longer version? The slightly longer…
