Talking Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

you may be an aikido addict if you spend the whole day looking up pictures (to try and get others to join you at aikido) and info on dojos near your uni, signing up to aikiweb (and checking every 5 mins for the confirmation e-mail) and correcting people on other sites on their view of aikido. To the extent of forgetting to eat or drink (and forgetting to tidy your room even though the parentals keep asking you to do it around every half hour)

ou may be addicted if when having run out of books to read you consider knitting some little aikidoku and putting pipe cleaners in them or something so you can pose them doing various techniques

Cool Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

...after a drunken night out with friends you start rolling up and down the hallways in your flat, to prove you aren't drunk

...your alarm goes off in the morning and before you've even opened your eyes you've rolled out of bed and are waiting to be attacked (i think i was dreaming about aikido again)

... you see a license plate with "UKE" in the number and wonder if it's another Aikido addict.

... you started this thread, and are still glad to see it's added to!

Don't want to steal your thunder, but it goes along with it.

If your most recent call history is the dojo, your fellow aikidokan and then your mom.. you might be addicted.

Oh, come on! Surely you can get by with only five or six seconds of sleep a day; stay on a little longer!

When on a airplane, you laugh when the flight attendant says information about the exit slides because you can just front roll out the exit.

I can hear it now, when your dad finds out what you did: "What is it with these kids today? Skipping class to do Aikido? When I was a boy, we went out to do drugs and get hammered. Kids today skipping class to do something GOOD for them .... what's the world coming to?"

Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

If you walk around the halls of your dormitory in the dead of night spreading Aikido through witty dry erase board comments, you might be an Aikido addict (and at such a young age, there may not be much hope of recovery).

This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
Embrace this moment. Remember, we are eternal.
All this pain is an illusion.
