Felt like shit all day yesterday. THat, "oh fuck I'm getting sick and have to get up on stage in twenty minutes" feeling. Coughing, walking into things,incipient sore throat. Lots of chicken soop and ossilococcinum. Relax.Its just a test and you aren't training for rank anyway.
Finally called Sensei at 9 to say I *might* hafta bail & i'm so embarrassed. He told me i wouldn't have to wait for the next test cycle, we would "work something out" which was all anyone could hope for, it was really OK with me to just let it go.
I'm better this morning, aiting for the coffee to go through.Not 100%, just enough to knock the confidence down to a reasonable level, I feel like I was starting to get a little cocky- I believe this is known as Brown Belt Syndrome, which can't be healthy!
And I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do katatedori iriminage...

So I'm not as ready as I could be but i"m as ready as I am...gotta trust the System...
