    you will enjoy this.
    I'm looking forward to it. I sort of have some training, sparsely collected over the past year or so, but I've never had an instructor. I figure after the 6 months I'll be good with the classes and can look into private lessons or something like that. The instructor at the school charges $100 an hour though. Fuck that.
    Pretty cool when you get to know someone, or think you do, and then they show you a whole 'nother side that just blows you away. People are never predictable. We focus a lot on here about bros or wominz having crazy-sizes or whatnot, but it's cool when it goes the other way - some people have hidden talents that, for whatever reason, they don't share too much.
    Previously undiscovered sexual talent from the lady love?

    here's what I would suggest - do what you can with the group lessons and then see if you can get a boxing private coach, they are usually a lot cheaper, and one critisism I have of US krav schools is that they neglect technique to work on agression in the early levels. so you will want to improve your striking technique in about 6 months. good luck

    I plan to seriously go through this process over the next few years. When we move into our next house I want to have things stripped down to essentials.
    It's a pretty awesome feeling. On another happy note, I found a good amp! I've decided to keep the old futons and opt for it instead.

    Loving my summer classes, loving my major.

    Also this is the first time that I haven't worked while going to school; it's really nice to study and have a shit ton of free time.

    Wait, no. Last I heard, Jon is employed. He's just..rather passionate when it comes to the job market.
    I'm hardly the only one. And I had a great shoulder workout today. [​IMG]

    i watched "despicable me" last night with the family. if that movie does not make you happy you seriously need to reevaluate your life.

    I had a great weekend with the family. girls had a ballet recietal on saturday, then spent the afternoon at a playground. sunday my son had a piano receital then spent the afternoon at an amusment park. for the first time, bought season tickets to an amusement park, with season parking. the idea is to try to go 4-5 times over the season. the season tickets are 1.5 entries, so after the second time it has paid for itself, if we can avoid spending too much on shit in the park. we'll see how it goes. also, going this early in the season was great, the park was empty.

    GF and I are really considering sailing classes this summer. I haven't been in a very long time and she never has. Would be great.
