Well, another day, and another hour of getting my neck, and arms handed to me. It’s all good though. I wasn’t breathing like a dragon and half dead like yesterday, which I think is due to the less humid day. However, I had a great time. It was great rolling, and watching other people roll, and just feeling the camaraderie of a good training session.
Afterwards, I went and looked at an apartment a mile away from the academy. The person looking to rent out a room seemed really nice. It’s been interesting, the people I’ve met in this quest for a summer home. I actually spoke with one today. I didn’t get the place (another person simply offered more money), but he said that his roommate thought I was very cool, and would love to hang out if time permits. He himself is leaving town for a while. I was flattered. I’m not such a bad dude after all I suppose.
So, in lieu of heading back to jiu jitsu this evening, I had dinner with one of my oldest and dearest friends, and her daughter. It was uber cool. The daughter, whom I have affectionately referred to as “Blondie” since the age of about 6, due to the gorgeous blond hair she was endowed with, just completed her sophomore year of high school. I remember when she was so little, and I used to tickle her and bounce her around the room, and strap her into her car seat…and now she has a boyfriend, and going out and texting, and all that kind of cool stuff. It just reminds you how quickly life passes.
Well, tomorrow will be my first No-Gi class in who knows how long. My no-gi is worse than my gi, so I’m looking forward to learning….a lot!
