It's amazing...

what a bit of exercise and achievement will do for you.

Lately I've been up and down a bit but right now I feel like I'm on the top of the world. The reason? Well, today was the grading for karate. J, Chickie and I have been going for a while now and probably should have gone to grading months ago - but tournaments, New Zealand trips and various other things got in the way. So, today was it.

I was so nervous yesterday and today (well ok I've been a little nervous about it for ages). I was positive I wasn't going to make it - but guess what? I DID!! J and I officially have our yellow belts in GKR Karate.

Chickie didn't want to do the grading so we didn't push him, but we'd still like him to go to the classes. I don't really blame him to be honest, it was quite tough. Usually we'd have a lesson for about an hour but grading was for two hours. Talk about exhausting too! At one stage I thought I'd have to excuse myself to go throw up! Luckily I got that under control though.

So, right now I'm tired and my feet are a bit sore but I'm over the moon!

You know those times when all you want to do is crawl back into bed and pull the blanket over your head - and then stay there a few years? Yeah, that's me at the moment.

I don't know why exactly, there's no real reason for it. I've had some interesting experiences I could have written about (meeting up with a couple of friends from World of Warcraft, attending a wedding of a friend where one of the groom's family tried to sabotage things, completely forgetting daylight saving started on the weekend when I start at 7am on a Sunday etc) but I don't know... I just don't feel inspired to write about them.

I feel... deflated (?) I guess. Flat and uninspired. Sorry...
