Another fascinating post
Yesterday was a good day. I trained with the usual suspects and then hightailed it down to Garden Grove to watch the second day of the Copa Pacifica. A couple New Breed guys competed, and I got to see Wen, Brad, Jimmy (who didn't train yesterday), and Felicia. Stayed till the bitter end of the tournament (what is it about them that's so dang fun??), had some dinner with Sean, Johnny, and Jason, and then farted around with Johnny and Henry, who were doing a private with me as the training dummy. The private started around midnight and lasted till about 2:30. Holy crap. I'm getting too old for this kind of schedule.
Woke up in time to call about the studio in Whittier. Turns out it's not quite ready for viewing yet, so they're going to call me when it is. And the lady said that if this one doesn't work out for some reason, they have other units coming available in the same building, and the layout is completely the same--murphy bed, dressers, stools, garage space, etc. So as irresponsible as it might sound, I have stopped looking for places. I am going to move into this particular building. I don't know exactly when or for how long, but I am. So now I'm going to focus on just having a good time and taking care of other kinds of business, like my taxes, finding some consulting work, and establishing a training routine.
This morning I taught class because Johnny's out of town. It was fun, and easier than it has been in the past, probably because 1) I am better at BJJ now, and 2) New Breed's curriculum is pretty well articulated, so everything that needed to be taught was on the clipboard. The clipboard also contains the warm-ups, which range from easy to tear-inducing. We're doing a fair amount of crying these days because we're trying to get into shape for the PanAms. Today was some random errands, and tonight was two BJJ classes.
Trying to think about what's going on. Tired. Tomorrow will be training at Newport Top Team (aka Eric's garage), maybe some laundry and some research about teaching online, and knocking other stuff off my to-do list. Falling asleep right now. Gonna do something about it. Probably sleep.
Oh, no pictures from when Eben was in town. I'm lazy and forgetful.
One last thing: had an okay day today re: dieting. Not stellar, but not terrible. I'll weigh myself in the morning. Although Jason says he has an uncanny ability to tell how much people weigh just by picking them up. He picked me up and said I weigh 146.
I hate him.
