Today the weather was really nice... outside at least, at school every single classroom felt like a sauna and honestly the school day couldn't end fast enough. But afterwards I got to enjoy the nice drive outside and had lunch with my mom outside as well. I really enjoyed spending time with her as there isn't much more time for the two of us to get lunch together.

Warm Days

As the days get warmer and warmer I feel even better as I can actually enjoy being outside and walking to classes around campus. Nothing makes me feel happier than driving around town with my windows rolled down, listening to music, and wearing my sunglasses. I really enjoy this time of year for that feeling.

As my requirements start to wind to the finish I am feeling a great sense of pride and relief to know that I have almost finished. I am feeling great as I am almost finishing this cycle and have 49 days of school left. But once after the cycle is over I have my AP Exams. Looking on the horizon and seeing the finish to so many things makes me step back and really think about all of the things that I have experienced over the past year.

Doctor Visit

Went to the orthopedic doctor today, unfortunately got semi bad news I have a contusion in my left knee and am suffering from a problem when my knees are having trouble supporting itself. So I have to take anti-inflammatory for a month and do physical therapy for a month. But the good news is that I can still train and test just another little thing to overcome but I am ready to handle it.

It snowed today unfortunately it came and went very quickly, but that is okay. I will take that as a sign that things can change very quickly and that you need to slow down and enjoy what is happening right now.

Thursday

At the dojang today I worked with kids who are a little more troublesome and it was very tough but I enjoyed it as really stretched my skills on an instructor. I am ready to start working on helping those kids improve and make their class time more successful for them.

Last day of February

I tested for kids for their new belts today at the dojang and I enjoy it every time but I feel like I could improve more on my testing lay out to make it more fun for the student and the parent watching. Makes me feel great whenever a student breaks their board and earn their belt.

Sunday

Today was a pretty relaxing day I just stayed home and worked on a little homework and hooked up my PS2 and played that for a while. After that my family and I watched the season seven premier of The Walking Dead and with no spoilers said it was a good but sad episode for sure. If you watch the show and haven't seen the episode yet, please hurry this will be a huge topic of conversation until next weekend.

Good Day

Today was a pretty good day I went to the ear doctor and my ear health has been improving drastically and after almost eighteen years of ear problems it is a relief to hear that I am outgrowing this. Afterwards I presented an economics and I got an A and everyone loves As. After that I got home and relaxed before work. Then I got dinner with a friend of mine who is back in town from college for fall break. Overall a great day!

Half Days

Man I love half days I get to get home even earlier than usual! I have enough credits so I get to leave a whole hour and a half early most days which is amazing. So today I got home at 10:30 so I worked on my college application some more and worked on a project and it was lovely. I wish all days could be this nice and short but then I wouldn't appreciate it as much. I'll take it whenever I can though!

Wednesday

Today I had to take a psychology test and I was frustrated for even though I studied for hours to prepare for this test I still didn't feel confident going in. I was nervous and I wish that I studied even more as it would have made me feel better and not as nervous. After that though it was a very calm day and that's what I wanted after that frustration.

Bad Days

As I write this journal I am watching the coverage of the riots in Uptown Charlotte and I am very sad while watching this its tough to watch a city you care about spiral into violence, anger, and hate. I hope everyone will be okay this is heartbreaking and I hope no one else gets hurt. My thoughts go with the families of the people who have passed. I don't want anyone else to get hurt. My day was okay but my mind  and heart is with my city and the people in it.

Today

Today was a fun day it was fun because it was uneventful everything was the same as usual and that is never a bad thing to me. School went by without a hitch and I am glad that it did as sometimes it takes a while. Work went by super fast and I was sad that it did. But I am glad today was normal as Monday was a little more crazy.

Last two days

Yesterday I didn't write a journal entry I got a little caught up with the panthers game and I actually didn't get to go to bed until around 12:05 and with a 5:20 wake up time I wouldn't recommend it as I am exhausted at the moment. But today I worked with both Master Moon and Instructor Hsin for over an hour today and I was aloud to count those sessions for multiple times. After that I went to my high school foot ball game with some friends and I had a great time! Unfortunately I am having to miss the PMAA seminar tomorrow due to having to take the ACT tmorrow morning into the afternoon and I can;t make the sessions which is bums me out. But this is for my education future and when it is done I will be glad.

School

Today I was able to see my schedule for my final year of high school and like the past four years the schedule was all messed up. I was honestly not surprised that they messed it up... The problem is I asked for early release which is when you get to leave after third block and I did not get it so I am trying to fix it I have emailed my counselor and am waiting from a response. Besides the bad schedule I hung out with friends and we played cards against humanity tonight and I worked on requirements.

Grandma's Funeral

Today was my Grandma's funeral and while it was very emotional for me and my family it was beautiful at the same time. Every person at the funeral had such nice things to say about her and when I say every person there was at least 200 people attending the service. I will miss her dearly but I am glad to know that so many people love her and will keep her in their thoughts and hearts for the rest of their lives.

Today was a fantastic day I started another dog sitting job today and will continue it until late tomorrow evening I always enjoy these jobs as it is relaxing and fun to be around dogs besides my own. Besides that I got to hang out with a group of friends late today and we had a blast like usual. You would think after ten plus years of friendship you may get sick of each other or move apart but not for us. These four guys (while the three are actual family(they are triplets)) are the brothers I never had.

Not a fun couple of days

I have been silent for a few days as I am still mentally recovering... My grandmother passed away on Sunday, she was always a positive force in my life she always supported me no matter what and she came to almost all of my testings throughout my taekwondo career she always came to black belt testings. I will never forget watching her slip away right in front of me, as one of the only times she was lucid she pointed at me and brought me in closer and she tried to say something but I couldn't understand what it was. I will always love her... I hereby dedicate my cycle to not just myself but to my grandma as I know she wanted to be there to see me test.

Busy Days

Over the last few days since I got back my life has really picked up for the better. Besides just doing my daily requirements which I am finding to become part of my daily routine just like brushing my teeth and getting out of bed. I have been reading my assigned summer reading books for school one is a really fun and interesting read which is "Cat's Cradle" by Kurt Vonnegut. The other one "How To Read Literature Like A Professor" by Thomas C. Foster is one of the most dry books I have ever read and I have to read this for AP English 2. Also last night my friends surprised me after work and we hung out all night I didn't get home until midnight! Here is to another good day.

Coming back home

I just came back home from vacation on the beach and this vacation truly felt like a vacation as we had no internet signal over the last week I was not able to log in my requirements but I had a great time none the less. On my first day of running I actually got lost and had to run into a nearby hotel and ask for directions back to my condo but I will say I had a great time on my vacation besides that little hitch and I am ready to dive fully back into my audit cycle. I am happy to back and ready to go back to work at the dojang tomorrow!

Summer Camp Day 2

Today was the second day of Olympic week and it was another great day. The kids got to see the instructors do some "entertainment" and the kids were howling with laughter made my day just to hear them. The first half of the day the little tigers and I had our own separate space and the kids were super focused and very strong which made me happy, seeing them work so hard is a feeling that indescribable. But towards the end when two groups came into the same room the kids lost focus and I don't blame them it was very loud and there was a lot of people in there. Tomorrow I am hoping to have my own space once again!

First Summer Camp Day

Today was our first day of Summer Camp and the theme is Olympic Sparring. Since we are in the temporary space before we get to move into our new dojang, so there was some issues that wasn't as much fun as some of the summer camps before. It was a little loud during camp but I could get louder than everyone else. I had the youngest kids the little tigers in my group and I really enjoyed those kids they were cracking me up all day! I can't wait for another day of camp for tomorrow.

Interesting Run

While I was on my run today I ran into a man walking a full sized pig on a leash like a dog and of course I had to go pet the pig so my run took me a little longer today but it was worth it. I can honestly say that I have never seen a pig on a leash until today the best run I've had in a while.

First of Many

Today was my first day of going to North Charlotte for Saturday Black Belt class and I had a great time I really loved it. I drove up there and the drive was my first time going on the highway by myself and although it was a tad stressful I loved having all of that freedom. I had a great time during sparring class and during black belt class and I learned a bunch of new stuff and learning new things makes me feel the best. During sparring class I did roll my ankle a little bit but it won't stop me from doing all of my requirements.
