day 1549 – surgery reversed

i was prepared to spend my day here and walk out with metal inserts. did all sorts of tests, hooked up to machines, confirmed anesthetics, then the surgeon came and said he didn’t believe he could make it any better with a metal plate. i’m more than slightly confused with the turn of events; i don’t have a choice but to follow his plan of action of treatments at his clinic. after four or five hours of checkups and a few holes, i was discharged without being operated on. hospital aside, the transparency at one of my major life event is unacceptable and more than a red flag. i think i’ll forever remember this day as the day my heart broke

day 143 – belt is revived

my belt at its worst condition where a line of thread completely ripped off and there’s a huge gap causing fillings to be exposed and at one point decided its life was at its end. thanks to my moms superior sewing skills, she revived my belt and it’s now better than the original condition. will continue to use this belt for the now and i am so ready for more training!!

day 94 – silver is not good enough

so much complications and turn of events at this year’s master cup, threw me off completely. i did all that i could under such circumstance with last minute changes that forced me to compete with a different poomsae but no excuse, silver is just not good enough and not eager to add to my collection. the most important lesson i learned today from my grandmaster is i must be ready to perform anything top notch at any point in time
