karate has been mostly it.
i went to an aikido class. in the small rolls at the beginning, i managed to catch my toes and pull them up very badly. this hurt quite a lot, but i went through the class nonetheless. it hurt more the next day. talking to my mom that day, i found out i still had health insurance, so i went to the hospital and spent 2 hours and whatnot getting xrays taken. fortunately, nothing broken.
but i have some nice bruising, which is always such a joy when you know it is all due to internal bleeding.
but karate is good. *sigh* just one more on the long list of things i will miss (even if i keep up with it, it won’t be the same – one more reason i should have applied to berkeley, eh? to work out there….. ah, the “important” reasons)
steve from our karate club just moved to miami. a bunch of us went to lunch in a somewhat-more-chinese-than-normal place in chinatown where they all knew him. while i couldn’t say i knew him well, i certainly knew him, i don’t know, personally.
