day 2117 – vacation swap

picking up my parents from the airport this afternoon while getting ready to pack and swap places with them. right after dropping them off at home, i had to head out to another taekwondo blackbelt test. the only difference is this time i’ll also be taking my own pretest. i never once thought i would be going for another degree. this was a very late decision that he ambushed with so i didn’t receive the study guide until friday night

day 1310 Рmatcha koala 

thank you for bringing me koalas when i needed a spark in my day. getting the special delivery eases the tears because it made me feel special. it’s not easy to swallow the heartless things i received, but with time, open ears and tender loving care, i will be okay. it wasn’t the best of days, but i’ll hold my head up and continue to trek. in the meantime, i’ve got a competition to get to and lots of last minute packing to do
