All Quiet on the Western Front
So it’s been a wee bit quiet here of late. Life has been moving on pretty fast and recently I’ve tried to stary away(ish) from the net away from work as much as possible. Aside from playing Football Manager Live I’ve pretty much been off the grid. I think this may have a lot to do with work but not overly so, I just have the feeling of late I should be doing something more after work. Speaking of which I went to my first Wing Chun class last night. It’s been something I’ve been meaning to do for a while after learning that a friend went to those classes. I’d completely forgot about it till Wednesday night, at this friends birthday, the topic came up again and I decided I’d go along. The class was friendly, fun and I’d like to think I did pretty well for my first lesson. I’ll certainly be going back and seeing how things progress.
It’s not the first time I’ve been to a martial arts class though. When I was younger, I think around 11 or 12, a couple friends of mine were talking about their Aikido class. Being young and thinking anything martial arts like was cool really wanted to attend. So I went along, borrowed an outfit (I think), and did so for a few weeks. I don’t really remember why I stopped going, I either go bored, as kids do, or something else which I fail to remember. I do remember some of the classes and two students in particular who seemed intent on doing the moves but then pointing out ways to defend it and showing us that rather than letting us practice as we were told. It was fun though, what I remember, and last night at Wing Chun was no different. It will hopefully mean a more active me, Lindy Hop on Monday and Wing Chun on Thursday with running and cricket in-between.
Anyway, I should really get some sleep, I have a friend visiting this weekend. I’m kinda anxious in so much as I’ve not spent time one on one with this friend. Most of our meetings have been at social engagements and although I get on very well with him I just hope I’m not too boring or whatever. Yet another of my silly worries that I tend to have these days but there are good reasons for it, especially related to friends which is a far too in-depth conversation topic for tonight. All I know for sure is it will involve a Casino this weekend, possibly a cinema visit and some good food.
