I'm still alive

Highlights from this past week:

1) Passed that exam, as you know. Realized, after struggling the rest of the week, that I will NEVER finish one particular class in time, so I'm going to skip that class for now, start working full-tilt on the next one, and then pick up that first class next semester.

2) I haven't said much recently, but my first promotion ceremoney for karate is this weekend. I'm (hopefully) getting a stripe on my white belt on Saturday afternoon (which, in other types of karate, would be like a yellow belt). It's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things--my promotion in February, when I actually progress to a new belt color (green), is much more significant--but this one is significant to ME, simply because it reflects that I've stuck with it. You'd be surprised how many white belts never even make it this far.

3) Um....I'm a dumbass in love with a dumbass. (Does that make me a dumbass squared?) Let's just leave it at that.

4) We have a site visit on Wednesday, when corporate comes to observe and rate us. They come several times a year but it's always pretty stressful and there's a lot of prep work involved.

That's about all. What's up with youse? ;)

Congrats on earning your first stripe!! That's exciting; don't downplay it!

Good luck with your corporate visit tomorrow! Weren't you, like, uber-impressive last time? I'm sure you will be again, but I don't doubt that it's a really stressful time.

Yeah, what Nee said. That stripe is what I like to call an insiginificant significant! Be proud of it and take your due credit woman!

Hope the corporate visit goes well for you. I'm sure you'll do fine.

As for dumbass squared, if you ever have children, you're not really giving them much of a chance, ya know!

I wouldnt say "uber impressive," LOL. I did fine, yes. But I'm also working with a whooolllleeeee different group of kids this year. Anything could happen. Cross your fingers.

Way to go on your promotion! I'm really excited for you to get a whole belt of another color, but a stripe is a great milestone. It really IS awesome that you've stuck with this karate thing that's really good for YOU!

Good luck with the site visit, the classes and with the love thing ;)
