So, today was a pretty good day. I started out with a quick breakfast at Starbucks before heading up north for some No-Gi jiu jitsu training, thus the snazzy title of the blog post you’re currently reading. Well, things went well. Learned a very snazzy arm bar / sweep set up from closed guard. Really hot stuff. From there, we did some sparring, which was good. It’s great to be back on the mats. I can’t say that enough. I freaking love it.
So, from there, I went to look at yet another apartment. Yes! I am persistent if nothing else. This one is the place of two guys. I only met one. The other was out of town. I didn’t hear from the place yesterday, so hopefully I will hear something from someone soon. I’m out here, doesn’t someone wanna give me a North Side home???
So, after all of that, I headed downtown. The first time in 9 months. It was freaking fabulous. I am so made to be in the city. Since there is no evening jiu jitsu classes on fridays, I decided to head to the River East theater to catch “X-Men: First Class”. I enjoyed the film. I mean, it’s X-men! The best scene of the movie was the one with Wolverine however. Fabulous!!!
From there, I headed back to the train. It was wonderful weather today, and that just added to my enjoyment of the day. I took a few pics to begin a Summer 2011 photo album on Facebook. Check it out if you get a chance. Well, tomorrow is Q101 Jamboree. That should be an interesting experience.
