The journals seem like a neat idea, so I'll give one a try.
We are gearing up for a test soon, maybe next month. I and another student will likely be tested for two kyu ranks: 5th to 3rd. Overall, I'm feeling pretty good about it, but I'm a little nervous.
Part of my nervousness is due to the fact that for a couple of months, I didn't train at all as I was recovering from an injury. Sometime in late January, I started training regularly again and things seem to be going well.
I won't, however, be training tonight. I've come down with a case of tonsilitis and I simply don't feel up to class. I have to go down to the dojo (a 40 minute drive) anyway because I told everyone I'd be there early to open up for an open mat session. I think I'll open up, get some of the beginners started on some exercises, wait for sensei to show up, and then head back home to bed. :-(
I'll miss Saturday's class too 'cause a friend is coming up from Florida to visit. Geez, I hope next week is better.
