In General shodan application Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #124 New 03-20-2007 01:50 AM
I've finally sent in my application for a shodan grading. Yes it would be easier to wait till I'm further along the curve and my grading would be easier than having to struggle through it at this time, but I figure I have good company as some of the very good 1st kyu guys are grading with me so we'll all be on the mat together. It's somehow reassuring. That plus one of the guys at my level very readily and happily agreed to uke for me, so with all that support it's hard not to. And of course the biggest incentive is not having to grade for a very long time after that, if ever.

That being said, i've been experiencing mild pain in my knees and think it's because I'm getting more inflamed than usual or else I'm getting osteoarthritis in both knees now instead of just one. I think it's partly exacerbated because I stopped taking primrose oil supplements a month back and wasn't regular with the glucosamine either. Now is about when that should start to show up. Sigh. I guess I shall have to go back to taking supplements. I've been trying to eat more nuts and seeds as a way of ingesting anti inflammatory good fat but maybe I need even higher doses.
