In General Test Prep: Done Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Well, Lan, Brandon, Madrid, Jason and I worked on my test requirements last night... and I think it's safe to say: I'm done. Dunno if I'm ready, but I'm tired of thinking about it, worrying about it, analyzing it, etc. That's it! I'm done! Either I'm ready or I'm not!

I wish things were better, however. Koshis just plain suck. Don't know that I'll ever like them or get used to them, but they suck and that's putting it nicely. Everything else, I'll probably be able to get by with, but that damn technique is the bane of my aiki-existence. Period.

Tonight is the test. I think I'll use the first thirty minutes of class to warm up and run through a few techniques. After that, I plan to sit off to the side and chill. Meditate. Contemplate nothing until the second half of class which will be designated for test time. I need to show up early to set up the video camera. I'm anxious to see me on film again and compare it to my last test. I know there will be world of difference, but man... I dunno.

Chalk up another two hours!

PS: I've received a lot of words of encouragement over the last several days. It's nice and appreciated... but only time will tell. Less than 10 hours to test time. I'm not worried. I just want it over with.
