Sick again for the first time.

Lately it seems like I've been getting sick, getting well and getting sick again. So after much persuasion from Dan and a dear friend who kept mentioning I might have pneumonia, I take myself to the doctor thinking what I have is some pesky cold. Two hours later I'm leaving with four prescriptions, a shot in the ass, an appointment to return next week and a lecture on going to the doctor when I feel bad.  The worst part is the appointment next week is to make sure I don't have pneumonia. HA. I feel a round of I told you so's  is coming, but at least I have an reason for my poor performance in TKD last night. 

So today holds for me a lot of sleeping and maybe some working from home. I have some documentation I need to finish for Icarus that I think I can do from home and a script to finish tonight.  I hope i can do it, typing this has sort of work me out.

Got my @$& Kicked.

I had Taekwondo last night, most of it was practice for the test on Sat. If i haven't mentioned it, I'm testing for 9th Gup Saturday afternoon. I've got my forms, blocks and kicks down, so I think I'll be okay That part was a lot of fun even. 

Then we did target sparing. I was not ready. 

I was training with Master Kim. He is amazing, always happy and helpful but I really think he just felt sorry for me last night.  There were only two of us in the line, ever other line had three or four people. so we had to keep going. It was so intense and I am so out of shape. Master Kim even asked me if I was okay. I felt so out of place - everyone else looked like they were doing just fine.  Dan told me later that one of the other student had to stop while sparing to take a break.  I know I'm supposed to be going at my own pace and not paying attention to other students but that made me feel so much better. 

Tomorrow night is another hard class, Tues and Thurs are the Adult classes. They're pretty serious, the all ages classes focus more on technical style.  I actually really enjoy both classes. 

I was really scared when we first signed up for White Tiger. I didn't know what we were getting into, if my knees were going to take it, but I'm starting to feel like I can't live without it.

Day of Nothing

I had big plans for today - get up, go to the Duke Lemur Center, write all day,  play Rock Band with friends all night. 

What I actually did is get up, go to Lemur Center, play Fallout 3 and sleep. Ugh. I hate wasting time. So now to make up some lost time I have a fabulous cup of tea (Teavana's Sour Cherry Serenade) and Bizarre Foods on the TV (for future reference I call my TV Big Pretty. It's big and goes very well with the PS3) so I should be able to settle in with ease. 

I've discovered that to do my best writing I need the distraction of comforting TV. Law and Order works best for me second only to a food network special or trashy VH1 reality shows. I've tried to work to Sci-Fi Original movies but I get way too sucked in. 

Well, that's enough procrastinating.

I'm a horrible blogger

I sort of forgot I had this blog. Oops. Well I guess it'll be ok, since I'll ive done this week is work and work out. Taekwondo  on Sun Tues Thurs and Tonight, Gym Thurs and Sat for lifting.  I really hope this gets me in shape. I'm tired of being fat.

I'm working on a new freelance project thats taking up all my reserve brain power. It's not my normal genre - about as removed as you can get actually.  So i think my nerves are getting the better of me. I know I can do this...but...I'm writing a sequel for a beloved award winning family movie - If i get the dialogue wrong i might not recover.
