Your time will come, relax and enjoy where you are at the moment.
To a 5th Kyu you are a higher grade, they want to practice with you, so that you can impart what you know to them.
We all look to those who have gone before to gain more from them.
Sometimes there is more to be gained by giving to those wo follow.
I found that I only really understood an exercise when I tried to teach the principles to a beginner.

Life happens, gradings come and go, at the end of it all it's not what colour belt you have in the casket, it's how well you lived.

just a few thoughts,

totally ... training with higher grades rocks .....
right up until they hurt you! lmao

Dance your cares away .... worry for another day ... let the music play .... down in fraggle rock!

when bored ... do as I do. Poke a patient!
