Another year?

Posted 04-17-2013 at 12:41 AM by Hippiechick

I guess now its tradition for me to write here on my birthday.. So here goes: it's my birthday today!! I'm 35 years old!?!?! How did this happen? Those who said time flies after you hit 30 weren't lying!! Career is going great- love my job. Got a promotion, Dumped 2 friends this year who were sucking the positive life out of me.. Started to take my Heath more seriously and take more vitamins than I probably should.. Yet still no love in my life- the one thing I've craved all these years! Maybe this...

20 years on

Posted 04-12-2013 at 08:06 AM by m_miles

It's been twenty years since I first joined my first martial art classes and typically, I started doing two at the same time.

Two decades and four styles later, I find myself still cataloging my bruises (eight of them) and gauging the familiar grinding sounds from my knees, but you know, I'm still grinning.

Well, it's been quite a while since my last post... On any of the forums.

Life has kept me busy, and I guess it always will. I've also switched to self-employment in the last few years, which has been crazy in this day and age, but that's never stopped me before. I've been making changes elsewhere too, switching over to Krav Maga for a bit, which is all good fun.

It's good to see a few familiar names, and also sad to hear about Ivor. Nothing inspires me to...

A rant on a cashier guy

Posted 03-15-2013 at 06:27 PM by goldenmyst

Well I got a clue as to why the cashier guy at the convenience store across the street isn't very friendly to me but is to other customers. I was standing in line behind a well dressed young couple. The cashier guy was ranting on about how the store was like a mental institution with so many mentally ill around.

Apparently the couple didn't get it at first so the guy exclaimed, "Just look around you!" And there I was the only other person in the store wearing my over size...
