about having a blog that no-one reads is that you can rant about anything. Aikido and Iaido, both the arts themselves and the people involved, are the only things keeping me sane.
I'm just not that good at keeping everything going all at once. I am about to be fined £1000 due to a severe screw up in the car department. No insurance papers means no tax renewal possibility which means severe likelihood of being fined.
It's amazing that things like The Village (great film, take a look if you haven't already) don't happen more often. Getting away from all the paper work and the regulations and the money drains and you need a pass for this and a password for that and I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY MORE. **tears hair out**
To go back to something closer to nature. Wake up, practise Aikido, eat, cook, fix the building, raise kids, read philosophy, grow your own vegetables, all that stuff. I would work. I'm not someone who just wants to lie down and do naff all, I just get confused by all the paperwork sometimes...
I will definately be getting a Bushido tattoo... my Iaido instructor has one on the inside of his arm.
