For the past week and a half I have been fighting a rather persistent cold that has caused me to miss two days of school and a week of black belt training. I have to say I'm getting very impatient waiting to get back to my regular incredibly busy, fully packed with a million things to get done, schedule. Despite how frustrating it has been, I have been using the experience to practice managing my stress, one of my goals for my 3rd degree testing. I have a feeling that the main reasons I caught this cold was because I was constantly over exerting myself. Anyway, with any luck I'll be back in class tomorrow and healthy enough to make up the special training I missed later this week with plenty of time to prepare for Phase 1 testing. Go Team Ethos!
