In General suddenly senior Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Watching my most immediate sempai working through her variations for her 1st kyu test tonite, I suddenly realised that soon there won't be anyone senior to me training for a test the same time as me.Nancy will be our only first kyu just as I will be our only second kyu. Since we all train for the highest level test, we are all training for the 1st kyu test, but I still have someone "ahead" of me to emulate.Someone else who is under the greatest pressure owing to a harder,longer test.
Soon enough , she will test for shodan and I will test for 1st kyu and then there won't be anyone ahead of me in the test cycle; except for one sandan test that ought to be coming up in the next year or so.
I don't like the idea of being senior test candidate.At least its two tests away, maybe I should just slow down and let a couple of the soon-to-be fourth kyus catch up...its lonely at the top.
Not to mention we are running out of Dan test quality ukes....

LOL I actually know that, the re-enactment bit. I have been doing the SCA re-enactment for a number of years and have been out of participation in that for a few more now.... I actually meant a fascetious comment. When it comes down to looking up and you are the most senior (or close to it) student on the mat, it is a jolt. and what is, exactly, a metaphot? hee hee Lan

Wrong metaphot, Lan, I've been leading an actual parade for far longer than I've been training!
