Another rainy day!  I wish it would snow!!!  Not much new today.  I have school, soccer practice, and black belt class.  If it keeps raining I will probably not have soccer practice.  All my essays are done, and I only have 10 Miles to go.  Feeling pretty good!

I was not feeling well again today so I didn’t do as many requirements.  I did get another essay done - Yay!  I am meeting with my mentor today and we are working on my staff form.  I made flash cards for the test and I have been trying to look at them every day.  Hopefully tomorrow my stomach will stop hurting.

Last night we went to the Whitewater Center.  We went ice skating and saw the lights.  The ice skating rink was big!  We skated for a while.  The path the lights were on was super muddy!  After we left we stopped for hot chocolate.  Today we don’t have much planned so I’m going to relax and work on my requirements.

I’m glad I can talk today.  It is going to be a lot easier to communicate with my family.  I’m sad it’s raining today.  I went to Master Hartle’s studio last night for class.  It was fun to be back where I started Tae Kwon Do!

Today I will be doing a no talking challenge.  It is the empathy training for one of my essays.  I am going to sparring class tonight.  That should be interesting because I cannot talk.  I am going to try and get my requirements done early today.

Yesterday during black belt class I felt unsure of a few forms.  Today I watched the videos of those forms and practiced them a lot.  I feel a lot more confident of my forms.  I am trying to get a little ahead on my physical fitness so I’m feeling a little bit sore tonight.
