…you know you’re alive

In middle school, I read The Bread Sister of Sinking Creek and a phrase stuck with me. The girls had almost been frozen to death, and when they thawed out, it hurt them so much, they were screaming. Their savior said, “Be grateful for the pain, girls. It’s how you know you’re alive.”

Yesterday morning, I think I passed my test. Bimyou. Borderline. I don’t know if that’s good or not.

At training…it was awesome.

It’s just…I’m in a lot of pain right now. I wanted to go to evening training so bad, but couldn’t move. 🙁

I finished watching Bedknobs and Broomsticks. It was the re-released 1996 version, and they actually ADDED scenes! That’s why I hadn’t seen some stuff, not because they were cut from the TV version, but because they hadn’t been in it in the first place~! New dance scenes, songs, etc! So cool.

I woke up feeling a little better, thank GOODness. ;o; A little, meaning I can move my neck again, slightly.
Time to go to work. Kids outservice, and then meeting in Tokyo. I’m annoyed at my schedule. I didn’t get my prep periods. -__-;;; But I’ve been looking forward to the meeting. Hopefully my headache won’t be too bad, and I’ll be able to look to the left, after warming up, jumping around with my kids class all morning.

I love these guys. XD Too bad more people weren’t there. I really really appreciate them going hard with me. So many Japanese men won’t. As I was telling a friend yesterday, I understand that it’s hard for a guy to train with a female most of the time. I get it.
