Mike, George, Edwin, Gerd, TI,whatever you call me
Thursday was a fun day. I got home from class to find my power out; a delayed casualty of the recent ice storm. I finished reading Journey to the West (woo!) and then promptly departed for Erin's for more watching of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, from 1989. I find myself wanting to put some sort of witty observation here about it, but I got nothin'. Sorry.
I also noticed that, since I have Thursday evenings free now, I could start going to judo again. I've been feeling myself get more and more out of shape recently, and it was wonderful to go move around and hit the mat and get very, very out of breath. I'm still sore now from actually having to use my muscles. In addition to that, I decided to stick around and see what the aikido class later in the night was like. I was rewarded with a class of 5 people including myself (going on at the same time as the MMA class on the other side of the mat), with the average age being probably 20 years older than me. I think I found what I'm going to be doing with my Thursday nights for a long time. Despite being utterly exhausted when I got back my brain felt like it was working a lot more like I expect it to; it's amazing what some vigorous exercise can do. And the exhaustion should get less, as my body remembers the meaning of "aerobic exercise".
Peace, love, and ohgodmyshouldermuscles
