Journal for Wednesday

  Hello King Tiger! Today was weird day because I had to stay in Advisory(aka Homeroom) for the WHOLE DAY because all the juniors were taking the ACT and so they changed the schedule so that the juniors could do the ACT without any distractions. After school, I did some homework, did some requirements, and went to taekwondo. Taekwondo was fun and I am catching up on other stuff like mentee/mentor sessions, and my leadership/class assistance credits. I hope i am prepared for the physical, written, and final test.

Listening

My dog had a grooming appointment at different Bandfield hospital than the one in Northlake. It was just a general check, but while I was waiting, I started to have a panic that I'm not doing enough to give him a consistent schedule and discipline due to my lack of knowledge and school. The vet tech came in and she listen to concerns. And we talked for a while, I was concern that I was taking too much of her time, but she didn't make me feel that way. She re-affirmed that he looks well and gave some advice. I really appreciate that little time she took to listen to my concerns. When I went to pick up Kodi, the vet came out and spoke to me to address my concern about anxiety and training, and tips about brushing his teeth. Being heard and listening well is so important. I've especially...

2/28 "homework, requirements. It never ends.."

Today I went to school and reviewed for a science CFA we have tomorrow. But I just finished my requirements and went to class, and then I got the worst headache I've ever had. I ate food and went home after class. Then at school I turned in my poster and a lot of people liked it! (I think). I am now going to bed at 10pm.. I'm tired. I should do my last journal about how tired I just am. I think I need to go to bed more early than this but I can't bring myself to do it. I hope everyone had a great day and stay safe.

Blaze Pizza is doing a sale on 3/14, where any 11in pizza is $3.14. Is there a secret catch to this? Probably. As an early college I will proudly admit we are a bunch of nerds, especially my friend group. I got tired of Physics work so I went on my phone, where I saw the glorious $3.14 pizzas ad! I showed it to my friends, and since we're all nerds and just finished the trigonometry unit (which included the unit circle and... pi) we all got very excited over it. We're planning to geek out to our Precalculus teacher. She's either going to be excited with us or be concerned. I'll find out tomorrow!

Today I woke up and got ready for school.  Mom and I walked to school, and it was really warm out this morning.  I got to school and we did blocks and had recess.  Then I went to King Tiger and did class and did my black belt stuff.  I also worked on 2 essays (My Role model and How I can apply Taekwondo to my life).  I also ran mile, it started to drizzle so I ran pretty fast because I didn't know if it would start raining harder and really want to get that wet! I am pretty sure it was my fastest mile so far 9:40, its definitely faster than my pretest time which was 12:15.  Finally we got to go home and I practiced my recorder some its pretty hard mom was trying to help me but I was still having a hard time.  Then we had...

Hi King Tiger Family. It is Wednesday night and all is well!!! Pretty good day at work, normal crazy farm, but not terrible. I came home, ran between the rain drops :-) and did some requirements. I did eat in there somewhere and now I am writing this. Plan now is to finish a few things around the house and walk the dogs. Try to get the bed at a decent hour, but that is what I say every night. Have a great one. Take care.

today I woke up early for school and got homework. Then I went to the and got my miles done and then we played dodgeball. In social studies we got to sit with who we wanted and we had a very fun class. We played Butterfingers at the end of class and social studies. In ELA we did a social media project that was kind of fun. In science, we did a thermatrope and it was pretty cool. then in math, we did a activity on slopes. When I got home, I just chilled all day. For dinner I ate sausage and pasta. Then my mom came home and I watched a show with her.

Happy Wednesday! Today was a really busy day. Took Jovi on a tour of Bradford Prep. He has a spot there for 5th grade and we need to make a decision whether to make the move. We love Grand Oak, but moving to Bradford Prep would allow him to stay in a smaller school feel through high school. It's a long haul from our place though! After I got Jovi to school, I got my black belt requirements done. Then I had to take Jovi for a checkup with his doctor who is all the way in uptown. We also went to taekwondo tonight and I got in a class assistance credit. Hope everyone had a great day!

Weapons given to a ten year old

Hello guys. Today, as you might have guessed from the title, I will be talking about weapons and my full thoughts on them. To start things off, I'm going to talk about sticks. I like the stick forms because of the strikes and, for the stick forms I know, they're repetitive and fun to do. Sinuales on the other hand, while they're still fun, everything starts to blend in. My hands get tired and my mind wonders. They're just not one of my strong skills. The staff forms are a whole new level of complicated and fun. Staff form one is a sweet spot - think of it as gum inside a jaw breaker. It's a short form and it introduces you to a lot of basics. And then staff form 2 is like you're in 2nd grade and then the teacher moves you up to 7th grade - not knowing...

I had the first part of my math midterm today, and I don't think I did too bad!! I have the second part of the midterm tomorrow, so after I helped out with the senior tiger class I went home to review. I'm also planning on waking up earlier tomorrow to do a final review.  Working with the high white belts was fun! I noticed that their sidekicks were looking like round houses because they didn't really grasp bringing their legs in, so i had them balance small square targets while in the sidekick chamber position! They were laughing and enjoying it the whole time, and it was rewarding to see them having fun (because I've always found it harder to engage with senior tigers than it is with junior tigers) and especially rewarding to see them connect the dots! Once they realized all the had to do was tuck their...

Today I woke up, however, I woke up around 10:00. I was lucky and got to sleep in today since the juniors had to take the ACT test and I did not. I was able to get some requirements and personal projects done. I then went to school for the last 2 hours where we had 25 minute classes. I then came home and worked some more on the personal projects. Following that I went to run club. A lot of my friends were there and we had a killer workout. Afterwards I came home, ate, dinner, and did some requirements. I then took an Epson salt bath and showered; now I am here.

Hello! Today at school again I had benchmark testing again for math. I did pretty good and the rest of the day at school was pretty calmed. when I came home I ate apples and peanut butter and it was delicious. I relaxed a little bit and  Then I did 2 miles in treadmills. I worked on my requirements and surprisingly fell asleep in the sofa and took a long deserved nap. Now I’m relaxing playing some video games. And soon to go to bed. Bye!

Today my teacher had to leave our campus and go to the other one because she had to sub for another teacher who's dad passed away. So we were stuck with this sexist teacher for a week! We had her for last period which means that all the other kids before us made her mad so she decided to take all of her anger out on just the boys. While we were getting yelled at the girls were telling the teacher gossip like a cute little tea party. What I learned from today is that don't take people for granted.

Hello King Tiger Family. It was a pretty good day. Very busy at work. Pretty much back to back meetings and I think tomorrow will be similar. I have a few key things to work on this week, but all good. I got home a little later than expected, so I did not run. I will have to do extra the rest of the week. Tuesdays are usually a good run day for me. I did do other requirements with Nate, and now onto getting ready for bed. I already walked our dogs. We have two pups... Jax (~100 lb German Shepherd) and Koda (~60 lbs Beagle/Pitt mix). Both are good dogs and they get along pretty well. Well onto doing some stretching and heading to bed. Take care.

Today I finished my school project and it's going to be a good grade! (Hopefully) I did requirements this morning and finished my mile just a few minuets ago so I'm very tired. While running I got one of my best times so that's cool I guess. Anyways I'm just really tired and my hand hurts so goodnight king tiger. I also just realized that there is only a week left before physical testing! YAY! I hope everyone had a great day and stay safe.

Hello, today I went to school, and had Spanish, and we learned about Spain again.  After school I came home, and did some of my homework, and did my requirements.  After that I went to King Tiger, and had a mentor session, then I took the 6:00 class.  After that I came home, and did the rest of my homework.       The reason that it says #50pt. 1 is because I counted wrong, and that is 2 journals ahead so I still have 2 more.   Good night!

Happy Tuesday! Got in 2 miles this morning before the rain set in. It somehow took me exactly the same time down to the second which is pretty funny. Hopefully I'll be faster next time. Got in my black belt requirements. I started the bb cycle on 1/1 so I am on week 9. My exercise went back down to 4 minutes, but I am keeping it at 5 for the first 4 days this week since I am going to have a hard time getting in exercise on Saturday with the instructor's camp. At least, I am going to try and have that day taken care of by then so I don't have to think about it. Had to miss class tonight as I had to take Jovi to his band's practice. Hope everyone had a great day! Feels like we are in the home stretch!

Today when I got to school, I got my miles done in PE. After that I played basketball with my friends. Two minutes before the bell rang for our next class. The PE teacher had an announcement. He told all of the kids to drop everything and make their way to the high school gym, which is not far away. While we were in the gym, the whole middle school was there and we sat there for 30 minutes to an hour. The principal told us we can make our way back to the middle school we all did silently. We then got our stuff and moved to the next class. After that, the rest of the day had very short periods, so I can’t share much. When I got home, there was banana bread which was amazing. And then did homework and tae kwon do requirements. Have a good day.

Why do we wear different colored belts?

Wow, what a beautiful day today!  The flowers in my yard bloomed like crazy.  We walked what I thought was surely 2 1/2 miles, but it was only 1.6 miles.  FYI: Why do we wear different colored belts?  To symbolize an increase in knowledge with the darkness of color.

Today I failed a math test. I know I failed because I did not know half the questions on there. However, I am glad I failed. I usually stick to exactly what the teacher has given us to study, and not study on my own. That became a problem because there were things on the test I learned but did not study as intensely as everything else. I've learned I should be in depth about everything I study, as it'll benefit me.  Failure is important. Without failure, I couldn't learn the difference between doing something the right or wrong way. It'd be difficult to have morals if nothing ever goes wrong. I learn from failure, and it makes me better as a whole. Also, in English 111, we somehow got onto the topic of Fortnite and how we can form an argument essay. My idea was videogames how it has had...

Good evening king tiger family. Today was a great day. I got up and went to school and while i was in after school the step team came in the cafeteria and practiced and everyone was watching them even my friends mom who originally was ready  to leave but spent ten extra minutes watching the step team. After school I  went to taekwondo and after class i did a mentor session with master night and then I went home and finished requirements. These requirements are really hard to do. I cannot wait until next week where most requirements go down. That is all for today. Have a awesome night and a great day tomorrow.

Hey guys, Matthew here. Today's temperature was 62 degrees in Charlotte but then there was a storm filled with hurricane back kicks, reverse tornados and turning sides. Here are some tips on staying safe in this weather. TAE to stay indoors, only go outside when you KWON and if you get hungry I recommend dunking DO-nuts. If you can't tell, Master Chelley's class tonight was really cool. We did kicks on the bags and then we did brain cell killing kick combos after that.  Caleb and I were falling down, falling down, falling down from all of the spinning. It was the most treacherous storm of the year so far. To end this journal, i want everyone to think about what they learned today and how they can grow on it. I hope you guys have a lovely two hours left in this day and I'll see you all tomorrow. Good night! PS...

I feel good about today. I got some cleaning done; my calendar is up to date (hopefully). I set up health appointments for me and dog/grooming appointments for Kodi. He's a healthy dog, but I have to brush his teeth more consistently. The weather been warming up, and he has a ton of energy, maybe after work tomorrow, we'll go for a brisk walk/jog.  My boyfriend and I had a serious conversation about selling his motorcycle. He said he doesn't know if he'll ever feel comfortable riding in charlotte. It was a big concern for me when he moved down, but I trusted that 12yrs of riding would make him more prepare.   CrossFit was a difficult aerobic workout, assault bike and wall balls. my legs were jelly afterwards, but that just means it was easy to stretch afterwards. I also did some extra requirements, so I don't have to do as...

Today I did my requirements and went to school. When I got back home I realized I had to do a poster for class that I had a three weeks to do but I just started and it's due on Wednesday... And I learned when my mom got home I was officially going to Korea in November! I'm so excited to go! Is anyone else going? Anyways after two hours of working on the poster I finally finished the sketch of it and I'm very proud of it, I also got my mom and dad's approval too! I can't wait to finish it.

Then took a nap in the car. We got home and ran. After that, I just played video games. After that, I ate dinner, took a shower, then read more of Atomic Habits.

Cadens Journal

Hello Everyone! Today School was so boring so there isnt much to share. There was a bomb threat though during recess so kids ran all over the place to hide because we were outside. Once I got home I ate and printed flyers. After taekwondo my mom randomly said we should go to Andy's and it was so good.

Nate went to work out and I did some requirements. Just finished and getting ready to eat something and prep food for my wife and Nate when the get home. Then probably some more requirements, walk dogs, and get ready for bed. We will see. Have a great night. Take care.

2/25/24 Journal #50 FINAL JOURNAL!!

This is my LAST required journal!!!  When I woke up I played my switch for a little bit then had breakfast and got ready for church.  I went to Sunday school and then to the service.  I beat mom into the sanctuary, and she said she looked all over for me (haha) 🤣  Mom had to go down to the Boy scout hut to get Anthony's stuff in the car (I stayed in the church with LaLa at the sound board).  When Anthony sat down on the the bench beside mom all I could smell was campfire!  When we got home we had lunch and I did my black belt stuff and relaxed and watched some you tube and played the switch.  Then later on I got a shower and went to bed.

Today was awesome. I had my grad party and I had a lot of family and friends over. Had great food, good convos and listened to music. All in all a great time and I wish I could do it again. But you only graduate High school once.

Origin of the poomsae

Once upon a time there was a village called poom and in poom village lived various blocks and preps. In another village called Sae lived various kicks and punches. One day the two villages met and accused each other of stealing each others apples so they started a war. After a very long war, both villages ended up battered and bruised and they decided to become one big city called Poomsae. The kicks, blocks, preps and punches lived happily for a time along with their mayor Kukkiwon. After a while, a tiger entered the city wearing a paper crown. The tiger so loved the city of Poomsae that it decided to share the knowledge with all of its children, the little tigers. The King tiger gave colored belts to the little tigers to see who knew what. The little tigers grew up to be big tigers with black belts, which was the highest color. This...

I needed to take the night off from the gym, but I started my day and finished my day trying to learn my staff forms #1 and 2.  I have the movements down on form #1, but am only about halfway through #2.  King Tiger has way more curriculum than other schools and I am happy to have so much support from students and instructors who have all been helpful in teaching me.  I hope to be able to pay it back to new students in the future.

I somehow tweaked my knee over the weekend and had to dial back my normal Sunday activity.  No running today as a normally do, but I still walked over 2 miles.  No jump rope either today, but I still did my pushups, sit ups, burpees and slower kicks.  I need to stay healthy so I can keep practicing.

Great class on Saturday!  I was just reading about how to change an approach to training can move you beyond a plateau.  Grandmaster Evins had us do forms with one stick in our hands.  It totally changed the way I think about the movements in the forms - not always for the best.  I blanked on a few of the moves when I was thinking about the stick hand.  It definitely was a change from our normal training routine.   I owe a special thank you to Master Cavazos for his continued patience working with me after class.  Some of the color belt self-defense had left my memory over the last few months.  Thank you for going over it (and over it) with me.

Today my dad told me that my grandma was visiting us to drop off some money for bags of hope. I looked at my room and realized there was LEGO every where so I had to clean all that up because she was going to scold me for that if I don't. After she left I watched the clone wars and had burgers for dinner.

Challenge Yourself

I'm so ready for a day off, but I'll be excited to go back. I been working hard on improving at work. It's important to challenge yourself, sometimes I don't do things because I don't know how or don't feel confident. But stopping myself won't help me growth and develop. I should know my limits realistically, but I should also seek out opportunities to learn things I'm unfamiliar with, or work on things my own.  Also trying not to multi-task. Sometimes I need to focus on one thing at a time.

Today I woke up really early because we had to drive back home. It took 6 and 1/2 hours to get there. I was half way bored the whole entire time but I got over it. I played mine craft and watched movies. I came home and ran 2 miles and did requirements. I cleaned my bedroom changed my bunny’s litter box unpacked and took a shower before my mom got home from my brother’s baseball practice. When she came home she picked up pizza and wings for dinner. I had mild wings and I started packing for Disney and went to bed.

Hi King Tiger Family. Went to church this morning. It is important for us to understand that God wants us to bring things to him and his love is so great that we cannot understand it. It was a good way to start the day. I did a bunch of things around the house. I have requirements to do and I need to get to it tonight. Have a great night. Take care.
