    Angry Reality Bites...

    You know, sometimes life really sucks...
    I have been studying at Mr. Ronemus's studio for the past few months, and I have really been enjoying myself...
    The other day, the family and I hit a major setback...a major monetary setback...So much so that it's going to be impossible for me to continue on at Mr. R's studio, at least for the next few months...
    I've spoken to the studio manager, and she is going to freeze my account until I find out what's going on in more detail, but that doesn't ease my mind very much...
    I guess that it's on to solo workouts for me...for a while, at least...
    Dammit!
    Well, anyway...rant off...
    Misery abounds...
    Take Care, All...

    BUMMER!

    I got two speeding tickets in two months (hadn't had one in YEARS) and my bank account suffered terribly.

    Then I had some medical stuff come up, so again, my bank account suffered.

    But hey, isn't it great we're not dead or in prison?

    That "life" thing can really screw with one's training.

    I feel ya' bro. Hang in there.

    YES!

    One thing we can always count on, is that no matter how bad we have it, there's someone out there who has it worse.

    Can you imagine that there are people in this world who don't even know what Kenpo is??

    Anyway, I've been in that same situation as well... hang in there and things will get better.

    I have been there. I know it's rough. Hang in there. Solo workouts are sometimes the best learning experiance.

    It's all gonna workout. It's the ups and downs that keep life interesting.

    There are two ways to look at this and one of them is to try to make as much positive out of it as you can. For instance, take everything you know so far and work on it everyday so that when you return, everythign you do will be better. With this the only thing that will suffer will be your timing in sparring, but if you improve everything you know, when your timing comes back, you will be better for it.
