Hello From Southern Illinois

Hey everybody. I just got into Aikido through my college, SIUC, and stumbled... I mean rolled gracfully onto Aikiweb. Love it, and I after wanting to make a reply about knitting competitions (see "Master and Aprentice" or something like that somewhere), I signed up. So I've been in Aikido for the past 2 months with a two week break when I sprained my ankle, pretty nasty looking for awhile too. So anyway, I've been wanting to do Aikido for awhile and just this semester had openings on the nights my club meets, so yeah. I really like Aikido and look forward to doing it for awhile. I took Judo for a little back when I was like 12, and like two months of Tae Kwon Do when I was younger than that. And that's been about the extent of my MA experiences, except for action movies. Not sure what else to say, so I'll end with this little face that reminds me of how I feel after my third lap of forward rolls around the mats. (and a little like )
PS I'm an idealist and have been reading up on Aikido since I started and feel that it matches a lot of thoughts that I had before I knew about them, like wanting to make the other person not hurt me w/o hurting them. So yeah. Good times all around.
