Well, May has been pretty busy.
I started back at Langara to finish up my first year science stuff. I can’t say I’m totally in love with the material, having gotten a taste of how nice specific courses are. But I figure if I can power my way through first year bio, psychology and English, I’m golden. I’m also studying my ass off for my Chem final, which falls on my birthday. Another reason for me to drink a lot that night, heh.
I’m also working more the research project I mentioned last post. I’m learning a programming language for MatLab, and reading up on some BioMechanics stuff. It’s really neat. Baby steps!
And I’ve been going to a lot of… classes. For martial arts. I’ve been going to open mats on the weeknds for BJJ, which is awesome! I got a new gi in the mail this week and it fits me like a dream. I love it so much. I also did some boxing at my college, which was cool. I need to figure out how to fit it into my open mat schedule. And I did an MMA class last Sunday, which was also really fun. It was strange to have to worry about punching while grappling, and it totally threw me into the mindset I had when I first started BJJ.
Things are going really well. I’m happy.
And I’m planning my trip to Italy still. I have all the places I’m gonna stay, and the traveling within Europe figured out. Now I just have to decide what I’m going to do at each city. Much excitement!
