Fall 2022 Black Belt Cycle

3/27

Today I filled everything in so that I am up to date. I am scared that testing is around 10 days away, but I think I am doing pretty well with everything. Tomorrow I will be finishing up my Leadership 1's and I wanted to do  at least one more sparring class (even though I have met the expectations)

Today we had our Black Belt Physical and Written Test. I wasn't there for the Physical pre-test so I didn't know exactly what we were supposed to do. Yesterday I had no clue how they were going to keep track of around 20 peoples time, especially considering the times were so exact.

So on Saturday we have our written test and physical test. I'm glad I am actually going to be there, because for the physical pre-test I wasn't there so I had to do it another day. It has been raining a lot so I haven't had to do much with my shrub lately and its pretty hard to keep track o when its a good time to water it.

Today I did a mentee session, my normal class, and a sparring class. My mentee is doing a great job of memorizing the 10 articles of student commitment and right now we are learning 2 new articles per session. When we had off yesterday I got to read 60 pages of the book I'm reading for my essay and Im planning to be finished by tomorrow so I can write my essay this week or over the weekend.

Today is kind of like a no school weekend except I have to be awake by 8:00 am. Today I finished my mentor session, but still have around 5 mentee sessions left. My mentee is a little and right now we are trying to learn/memorize the 10 articles of Student Commitment (she is a high white belt).

Wednesday

Today was a pretty chill day. At my school (Lake Norman Charter) we have an E-Learning day on Friday and no school on Monday so its kind of like a 3 1/2 day week, but we don't have to go to school. I did my requirements and it was a little harder to do thee ones I do in the morning because I forgot to set my alarm clock and slept in 40 minutes later than usual.

I found out today we got a lot of credits for Camp. I went and it was pretty fun and I think one of the reasons I liked it so much was because it was organized.

Today was a pretty boring day. I didn't feel well like I had a cold and allergies and I was stiff in my neck and didn't feel like walking around, but luckily I didn't have any TKD classes tonight. I'm feeling way better and got all of my requirements in for the day.

Today I read a lot of my book for TKD. On Friday I went to Kick-boxing and a black belt class. I think that having the same routine of the classes is getting easier with each week.

My shrub (Camie) is  doing well and I only have to water her two times per week. I'm usually not the best with plants whether I forget to give them water or I don't give them enough sun light or too much sunlight. Today I helped out with two classes because my mentee wasn't at Tae Kwon Do today and I got a mentor session in at the end of my regular class.

Today I worked on a new running schedule because my old one wasn't working out well. Today I didn't do much so it was easy getting all my requirements in. I just went to church with my dad (my brother has a fever), went to Trader Joes and Ikea, went home and did not much of anything for the rest of the day.

Today I worked with my mentee, helped a class, took my regular class and later took sparring class. Whenever we have short weeks they always feel longer then regular weeks tome and today went by slowly . I usually take sparring class on Saturdays, but because I was in Hilton Head last weekend I had to make up for it today.

Today when I did my mile because of my knee I only jogged a little and mostly walked. You would never really think it would be hard to bend your knee until it is. My family and I are going to Hilton Head Island on the weekend so I have to make up my Black Belt pre-physical test on, Tuesday January 22.

Today I didn't run because my knee was tense from being buckled yesterday. When I did my kicks I could only do them with my left leg so it got tired easily.

I started my White Belt Challenge and I wouldn't call it hard. The only thing that was confusing was since I was the only white belt in my class I forgot what I know and don't know.
