Starting up AIKIDO studies again in Fairfield Aikido Dojo in Stamford, Connecticut. It's been a while since I've been there, kinda dropped out because of contracting Mono and then getting a boyfriend, but such is life. Now that I'm working Freelance for Elizabeth Arden in Stamford, I'm close enough, and Storm works nights again, so... back I go.

Inertia is weighing in heavily in my mind, though. I'm overweight, back where I was before I lost the weight from Mono, and it's been over a year since I studied. I didn't even make it to my first Kyu test. It was getting closer, though. I'll have to see about making this a regular occurrence for myself.

So, 7pm, time to head off to Aikido-land and hope I get over my shyness quickly. I know I will -- the class is structured well and it forces participation. Soon enough it's just hard enough to figure out the moves.

At least since studying Japanese on my own I can count to 10 now in Japanese and I know what Onegaishimasu really means. :-)

Off to dojo. Why? Because Aikido is cool. Just starting over again is hard.
