I don't think I'll cry when I lose. I think I understand why the other girls cry. they get used to winning and then they don't.
I'm sure I won't. I can learn from winning.
but I am afraid of failing.
of not giving it my all because I think I'll lose.
I have expectations to meet that I don't think I'll be able to meet and in my mind the stakes are high. if I win then God gets glory, my dojo gets another meddle and I get personal respect from the other fighters and the audience as will as my friend.
it's not that I need that but If I win I prove myself to myself.
If I come in second or third or don't place at all. then glory to God it's his plan, I learn, and I'm just another fighter without enough experience.
I was worrying alot over it.
So I was convicted that with God all things are possible. I just have to go out and do my best and hope for the best and trust god and let come what may.

Good, better, best.
Never let it rest.
Until your good is better,
And your better best.
If God takes you to it, He'll lead you through it.
If you always do what you've always done you'll always get what you've always gotten

that begs the Question, am I a good role model? If a older person is told to be like me. how many little kids in that class are watching what I do and how I ask?what do the see?
they said I was elite. is that all they see? a good competitor? or do they also watch how I act? how do I act?
Am I setting a good example that younger ones can learn from?
I pray to God that I will become one, if I'm not already.
I know I've already corrected one girl for not cleaning up after herself. Bio hazard.
I've been used as an example as to how to do things properly. is that the only reason I'm here?
at this time in my life, why am i here? what is my purpose here?

as a matter of conscience I try never to read star wars on Sundays but once in a while I fail and give into temptation. bummer.
I am not sure wither or not I like the rogue planet. the take a mission to a planet that I think has a lot of nature worship going on. blah but I haven't gotten far enough to know. there is a distinct lack of God in it.but then what did I expect??
I don't like the whole force thing very much but I like science fiction and the master apprentice thing always have always will.
I like the Day star voyages they were Christian science fiction but I read them all. oh, well.....
most star wars books though I can have the fallacy easaly picked out, at least in the jedi aprentice ones. and so far in the rogue planet. I just have to be carefull and read carefully. and skip parts.
I dont' like how Anakin is so powerfull ether. he's BAD!!!

see when I was 12 I was excited and could put the book down so after my parents went to be I came out of my bedroom down the hall and into the spar room closet where I sat and read till about 1:oo in the morning. at which piont I decided to put the book down and go to bed unfortunately I stoped reading at the battle of wether top leaving poor aragorn against those nasty ringwraiths. and I had to WALK DOWN THAT LONG DARKJ HALL A MILE LONG WITH NO LIGHTS ON AND THOSE WRAITHS READY TO COME OUT OF THIN AIR AND GET ME!!!
i didn't even want to come out of the closet!
but that was two years ago and those raiths are still happily stuck between those pages where Ican enjoy reading about them over and over but I will NOT read in that closet till one in the morning again. lol. that is why mom says it served me right to be scared I shouldn't have been reading.
my friend is going to get a snow board and he says he will learn to snowboard if it is the last thing he does. I think he does pretty well. not every body can make the mile in seven minutes their first trip up there.

but what if Im one of the 6% sitting in the shower armed with the fire extinguisher? that means Im a loser correct? but what if Im sitting there with said fire extinguisher logged into blogger/gmail on an Itouch and posted this as my status? does that mean Im awesome yet careful person or does the fact that Im barricaded in the shower with the extinguisher negate the fact that I reposted?
hmm...perhaps then you are an awesome loser? personally, I think a extinguisher isn't actually all that bad of a defense against dragons...if they open their mouths to breathe fire on you then you can shoot it into their mouths and they'll ...choke...at least buying you enough time to run like the wind or grab the nearest sword and chop their head off.
Although...if there is a (non-friendly) dragon in your home and you're on facebook/blogger/gmail...you're pretty much an idiot ;)

latest new: judo tournament on Saturday. i took first place in my division. I"m a yellow belt and I fought girls who out ranked me and had had allot more practice and experience I've had less than a year of fighting under my belt.
all my siblings also took first or second.
it was good though I did come away hurt and tired. the past two days I've had to take naps in the afternoon which is very unusual... I heal slowly.
one of the girls that was a blue belt I fought three times and beat her twice. she beat me once. she was the most difficult. she only did like one throw but she was quick. she was really irritating though she kept screeching at me "SIKE" every time she tried to throw and most of the time she didn't get it. the sike is supposed to disorient the opponent or something it didn't work very well except for the first two or three times she did it then it was just irritating
I don't understand why people leave the mat crying.. it's poor sportsmanship. why can't they lose gracefully?
why do people fight mad? don't they understand that when your mad you leave yourself open in a fight because you can't make very clear decisions?
oh, the first time I fought this girl I won the second time I lost and since it was double elimination I knew i would fight her again and so the sensie was telling me what I should do but when I got to the other side of the mat she wasn't ready so david told me what throw I should do to get her I got out there and I think my sensie was reffinf that one but my four friends/coaches were all sitting in a row Jeramy, Brett, Tyler and David. all rooting for me and coachig me. Tyler said they were all like great big kids "GO! go!" though I happen to notice in the video that David was the only one who clapped for me in that line when they announced the ippon.
we tape our matches so that we can watch how we did when we get home and learn what to do better.
it also irritates me when one of the sensies know that one dojo is really good at a particular throw and will beat every one with it and so he banns it from the fight.

Priscilla of "priscilla's odyssey"

However, despite the beauty of the weather, the forest was completely devoid of sound or movement.
young elf waling throught the woods wondered at this strange silence.
Suddenly the silence was broken as a rope whirled over the elf's head and settled around his waist, trapping his arms. A tiny voice shouted "In the name of the Hundred Acre Wood, I capture you!"
the elf spun around,What was Christopher Robin doing in the world between the worlds anyway?
The boy grinned impishly at the elf. "Hello," he said.
Umm.. "Hello" replied the elf; what are you doing here?
"I am capturing elves!" the boy answered. "Elves are evil!"
what do you meen we are evil? what have we ever done to you?
"Well," Christopher hesitated. "I dunno." He took the rope off. "Let's go capture the Wizard of Oz instead!" He grabbed the elf's hand and began to run.
The elf only had to walk swiflty to keep up with the boy.
Very soon the duo ran smack dab into a very large man with an eye patch. "Ahoy, mates!" he bellowed "My name is Patch the Pirate!"
Suddlenly out of nowhere jumpen a ver larg wold right n to patch the pirate on the other side.
yelping becaus chris had stpped on her tail she howled what is going on?!
Christopher shrieked in terror and hid behind the nameless elf.
The elf was oblivious to the commotion. Glaring at the nararrator he demanded "Give me a name!"
Narrator: ok, lets see, thalion?
elf: this is scary when you paople start talking to you.
Sarady: Oh dear! Not Thalion?!
Haley: this is going to be a pain to put on the story page. Eol?
elf: not quite?
alright not eol. eagorwian?
please please please. continue with the story and write the next part in a comment. my friends and I don't know what comes next!!!

Have you ever stopped to wonder whether cactus was here before the fall? I highly doubt they were. In Genesis 3, when God is cursing Satan and condemning Adam and Eve. He says, "And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field."
I think that God made thorns and cactus after sin came into the world. Thorns and brier seem to represent sin throughout the whole bible. Look at this verse, "And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!" The thorns are a sort of representation of the wickedness that Man brought into this world and that Christ later bore and triumphed over in his death.
This was just a thought that I had on a trail ride a few weeks ago.

I am so happy.
well i would have placed any way there were only two other girls in my devision but I could have placed alst and I placed second.
the first time I fought I fought a girl from my own dojo. she's a pretty good friend so I didn't mind losing to her.
oh, I lost to her and she fought a green belt and beet her. she told me to be more agressive than her because that scared her. so I went out and began to fight her (my brother laughs at the fact that the first thing I did was try to go for a submission choke) so I choked her and the ref called matte and asked how old she was.
turns out that I had been shoking and under age girl. but the error was on them so I was not disqualified.
anyway I beat her and had to fight my friend again and lost so I took silver. my friend said she knew I could beat the green belt. I had to. she did not know what she would do if I hadn't. and I did.
it was good. my older bro also got silver and my sis took gold and lil bro go bronze.

yesterday, I was doing dishes and putting dishes in the dishwasher. normal right? right. going on, I was putting dishwasher detergent in the dishwasher when I realized that if you put the lid on the detergent bottle and shook it it makes the most awesome noise. so any way I thought this weird noise was pretty cool. I wanted to share this noise with my brother and mom and any one else who was unfortunate enough to be around at the moment. so tyler and my mom were talking in the hallway about her thyriod I think. so I came up with the detergent bottle and mom asked "yes?"
"listen to this it makes and awesome noise!"
"omg, I'm going to get some Tylenol." is what my mom said.
tyler just kinda does a little sigh thing and said I was strange.
Mom came into the kitchen a few minutes later and said. "Your a sad strange little woman. you have my pitty."
My reply? I think it's the random people who get the most out of life. they're always amzed at things we never noticed as being wonderful before and that most people never notice. I see most of lifes little joys.
that may have soemthing to do with the fact that I have very few past regrets and very few major desires. (unlike some one I know who's list is about 5,277 feet long(including big guns, trck,etc,))
I'm a relatively contented person.
not to say that I'm perfectly happy to stay home all my life and never move on. not at all.
I think sequential things are very hard on random people. theology kills us all.

faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
Your eyes can deceive you, don't trust them. Also from Star Wars,
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins- but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back.
Love is more than a candle.
Love can ignite the stars.-

I don't like twilight. well I should not say that. te movies look kinda cool from the previews but I don't want to read the books.
what I don't like is the fact that there were those twilight posters every were and that vampire edward Cullen or what ever whoishe whatishe looks like he's looking at you no matter were you go and looks like he wants to come out and eat you. and that werewolf whatshisface jacob black just looks mad and that he is looking out at you as well.
did I mention that I happen to want to put a stake through the heart of that vampire every time I see one of those he's-looking-at-me posters?

ok, not the kind your thinking of...
I'm in love with a house. we went to look at a house today because we may move. it was three bedroom, barn, seperate apartment. round pen sandy jumping areana it looked like. and private trails. I"M IN LOVE!!
it would be a good house for us in case our grand parents have to come and live with us and it would be down sizing. oh and did I mention an inclosed trun out!? two?
Mom says she's afraid about getting that house because it may be a LONG time before we could get horses and the desire and stuff for horses when when had the stuff and space for them would consume and become and obsession for my brother and I.
woe is me I'm in love and I can't do any thing about it.

"Some things are so worthy of the effort that is is glorious to make the attempt!"
Do you Really believe that what you believe is Really Real?
I am where I am, and go to where I go. And once I have arrived, I am there.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
"The greater the struggle, the greater the glory in the end"
-The Butterfly Circus
Both the children were looking up into Aslan's face as he spoke these words. And all at once [...] such a sweetness and power rolled over them [...]that they felt they felt they had never really been happy, or wise or good or even alive and awake, before. And the memory of that moment stayed with them always...

1)put ice and water in bowl (enough ice to last about five minutes) and place lidless bottle in water.(five min.)
2)put balloon over mouth of bottle & make sure it is sealed.
3)set bottle on counter table what ever and refill bowl with HOT water &place bottle back in water.
what do you think will happen?
go do it and tell me.
conclusion (what I learned):
to pay attention to how much water you stick in the bowl becauseif you don't you may just spill the water all over your science book when you put the bottle in it.
hah! and I was supposed to learn something about molecules. well think again science teacher! I learned something but I forgott it. oh well. no JK
I got a bloody lip last night. that's the first time any body has ever drrawn bllod out of me! my brother kept splitting his fingures when he first started but that was the first time I have ever blen in judo. lol.
it was in sharks& minnows. the way we play in judo the sharks are trying to get the minnows (no kidding!(sarcasm) but when they get the minnow they have to flip them over on their backs which can be very easy or very dificult. so I ended up with a split lip and both arms hurt from getting trapped under my brother and one of our buddies.
One of my buddies was getting ready to fight the sensie and he was on his stummack and calling set (ready, set. hajimi) and she climbed on his back and started bouncing so it cam out. se-e-et. it was really funny.
yeah, oh, one of the girls I was ighting was trying to flip me over and pin me without succes and she looked down and said. you have a goofy grin on your face. I said I always have a goofy grin on my face. which most of the time is true. at judo I will sometimes get a goofy grin on my face because I'm haveing a good time.

I bet my britches (JK I don't bet) that if he does get in the only place you'll see him is in mirkwood (of course, he's the prince (son of thranduil)) and at the battle of five armies.
just a side note on legolas here. I've always wondered how old legolas is. my theory is that he could have been born during the "watchful peace" which would put him at a reasonably old age explaining what he said in the book about feeling young again when he went into fangorn.

jedi mind tricks. I pulled one on tyler last night.
I've got to try it on my judo friends.
ooh, i went dancing on saturday.
it was fun. unfortunatly I don't have a ......nevermind.
a dress. I don't have a squaredancing dress ether who needs on?
my brother bought me a shirt that says
"Cowboys, if at first you don't succed do it the way your cowgirl told you."
I love it.
tonight is judo night. hmmmm. I think it's been quite a while since I wrote anything about judo.lets see.
hmmm. we'r back in the school for the winter. when schoold gets out I think we may get back in the fun center but maybe not. who cares. judo is judo were ever you are.
what else? oh yea, a tree fell down on the jumping areana.
ummm. I am like my mom so much that I scare her because I don't quite understand how much I"m like her. which is strange to me. I'm the silent one. watch out for me. tyler says that I could be an ax murderer. I said I couldn't I don't like axws as my chiose of weapon.
I have a wide streak of rebelion and and even wider stread of stubornness.
I'm like my dad in that i leave coffee cups all over the house. and they sometimes collect in one place.
am looking forward to my friends birthday party. I have to ether make some sort of shoulder covering for my dress because it doesn't have sleeves. just straps or make a whole new dress. the dress I have is gold. and it does look good on my but my personal colours (like the midevil standered crest thing typ coours) are blue, silver and black. though green is what I wear most. lol.
we had a humungis windstom come through. knocked down quite a couple of trees.
oh, and i read this book called "superhuman" that was cool. it's science fisction sort of I think. anyway.
super human is about well super humans. they tecknickally aren't humans they are. anyway the'reok. I got t the're like the increadibles. they have really cool powers. like...
Max is the mind read and he can also control some minds.
ros is his sister she's telekenI-don't-remember-how-to-spell-this

you can ether take it two ways.
you could etherstop loving altogether and become a mean cruel thing(beleive me it doesn't work very well.)
or, oh, wait. I forgot what I was going to say.
you could take the pain and just keep going with life. realizing that he has a plan. and it can be very painful.
some times he lets sertan people come into our live but find the need to take them out again because we have let them become more emportant thanour families or even God. and we have to learn it again and again sometimes.
thats just the way life goes.
by the second year my good friend merideth was gone she had moved. by this time I was *calculates* I think I was seven.. I was *slightly* sad to say the least.by the end of the third year there. I didn't even want to make friends. I knew I was leaving in a year. I didn't want to become close to any one right now. I didn't want to have to go through saying goodbye again. it was hard. very hard for me.
God had other plans for me reader,(and there is a moral for my tale I do not tell things with out purpose) He brought for my last year, one of two girls who I will forever call my best friends.
A man once said "if you have five good friends in a life time you do well."
Rebekah was one of them. is one og them. in just a year. we werethe best of friends.
but yet again for some reason unknown to me the Lord saw fit to uproot me from my *peacefull* life.
we traveled across the U.S. visiting friends and family. that was fun and hard. and ended up were i am today.
I was ten.
soon I had made friends again. I met Priscilla who is the other aother of this blog, my other best friend. and others. like, to me, so many times before. a year later on of my friends had to move. I think there in italy now.and a year later Priscilla moved. she is in AZ now.another year later and my third frind moved..
that third frind moving happened a year ago.
I am now fourteen years old. I know that is not very old to many of you out there. but the moral of my story is this.

I don't remember much about that place. in fact I don't remember any thing at all. my younger brother was also born there. he is two years younger than me. I believe that soon after he was born we left and moved overseas. my first goodbye even though I don't remember it. we moved onto a little island that we all disliked very much. That was were I first started remembering things.my earliest memories are sitting in front of a fire reading. (I always loved books I guess, they have my companions through alot of troubles.)
I also started making friends. or not. I remember three girls. two of them were friendly for the most part. I got along with them relatively well. we fought sometimes but that was ok because we stayed friends in the long run. (I am still in contact with one of the girls today) the other girl.... I don't think I even remember her name... I don't know we quarreled about something. we split. we both openly acknowledged that we were no longer friends. I don't even know why. anyway I forgave her along time ago and would seek her forgivness about it but I don't even remember her name. anyway I think it was in the second year there that the two girls that i got along with moved. I was very sad I beleive. but I did not stay sad. God provided another friend for me. right next door. her name was Laney ( I also like to hang out with my brother and his friend as far as I know I've always like to hang out with the guys and my brother). we got along like two peasee in a pod. we saw each other every day. for a year. we even did sleepovers. but then the year was up. it was our turn to move again we had tosay good bye again. bummer.
from that Island we moven to the mainland of Europe. were dosn't matter we were military is all I need to tell you.
Soon we made friends lets see. their was Merideth. who for a wile we saw about every week. we got to be good friends.
and their was some other girls from a large family.
Ihave to go.
to be conitued.
Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Sunday i got to see the lovely other authoress of this blog Priscilla. after a couple of years. it was fun. while it lasted but it hurt too. I have a history in saying goodbye. it never gets easier. even if you only spent a day with them after a two year separation. blah...................my emotions are raw right now.

He shouts to scare the monster who will often turn aside.
But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail,
For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.
When Nag, the wayside cobra, hears the careless foot of man,
He will sometimes wriggle sideways and avoid it if he can,
But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail -
For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.
When the early Jesuit fathers preached to Hurons and Choctaws,
They prayed to be delivered from the vengeance of the squaws -
'Twas the women, not the warriors, turned those stark enthusiasts pale -
For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.
Man's timid heart is bursting with the things he must not say,
For the Woman that God gave him isn't his to give away;
But when hunter meets with husband, each confirms the others tale -
The female of the species is more deadly than the male.
Man, a bear in most relations, worm and savage otherwise,
Man propounds negotiations, Man accepts the compromise;
Very rarely will he squarely push the logic of a fact
To its ultimate conclusion in unmitigated act.
Fear, or foolishness, impels him, ere he lay the wicked low,
To concede some form of trial even to his fiercest foe.
Mirth obscene diverts his anger; Doubt and Pity oft perplex
Him in dealing with an issue - to the scandal of the Sex!
But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frame
Proves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same,
And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail,
The female of the species must be deadlier than the male.
She who faces Death by torture for each life beneath her breast
May not deal in doubt or pity - must not swerve for fact or jest.
these be purely male diversions - not in these her honor dwells -
She, the Other Law we live by, is that Law and nothing else!
She can bring no more to living than the powers that make her great
As the Mother of the Infant and the Mistress of the Mate;
And when Babe and Man are lacking and she strides unclaimed to claim
Her right as femme (and baron), her equipment is the same.
She is wedded to convictions - in default of grosser ties;
Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him, who denies!
He will meet no cool discussion, but the instant, white-hot wild
Wakened female of the species warring as for spouse and child.
Unprovoked and awful charges - even so the she-bear fights;
Speech that drips, corrodes and poisons - even so the cobra bites;
Scientific vivisection of one nerve till it is raw,
And the victim writhes with anguish - like the Jesuit with the squaw!
So it comes that Man, the coward, when he gathers to confer
With his fellow-braves in council, dare not leave a place for her
Where, at war with Life and Conscience, he uplifts his erring hands
To some God of abstract justice - which no woman understands.
And Man knows it! Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him
Must command but may not govern; shall enthrall but not enslave him.
And She knows, because She warns him and Her instincts never fail,
That the female of Her species is more deadly than the male!

I was only five when I happened but I remember seeing it on the news over seas. I will never forget it. I remember it, and I hope you do as well.
I pledge alligiance to the flag, of the united states of America. and to the republic for which it stands.
One nation, under God, indevisable with liberty and justice for all.

26)"To whom then will you liken Me
Or to whom shall I be equal?"
Says the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes on high.
And see sho has created these things,
who brings out their host by number;
He calls them all by name
By the greatness of his might and the strength of his pwer; not one is missing.
28)Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The creator of the ends of the earth,
neither Faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.

I find some interesting things in my math book. A few days ago I found a drawing that I had done. And today I just found a printed copy of the jabberwocky.a poem from Alice in wonderland. I find that… odd.

okay my most recent interesting topic of conversation is this oh, wait it's not my most recent but the funnier topic. I find it highly interesting that many people want to say the, oh, boys and girls are equal they can do the same things. girls can do everything boys can... so on and so on. you get the point. I find it funny because all you have to do is walk into the judo class and you can see that we are not equal. I see that the boys tend to fight other boys and us girls prefer to fight other girls about our size and weight. don't get me wrong I have nothing against fighting the boys I am perfectly okay with doing that (okay, so it can be awkward at times; so what...) I fought the boys last night. oh and there is the fact that the boys (or young men rather) tend to shy away from ighting the girls. anyway. so it's perfectly clear to me that we arenot created equalwhy can't others see it as plainly as I do?
O speaking of judo last night I dislocated on of the girls hips (we think)...on accident but she was fine and able to continue fighting. I on the other hand alost got my rib broken!!!! they say a bone doesn't hurt as it's being broken oly after wards but boy does it hurt when it's almost broken and it feels wierd!! i mean my rib was bending in and I was like hey stop that's weird. oww. that hurts now.
oh, it's also funny when your partner and you are doing a throw well and then the helper tells the little guys watch them and then you screw up like crazy. and had my partner on my back /shoulder in ipon sinogi (sp?) and I lost my palance and started walking backwards to keep my balance... it was funny.

I believe that there is no cathedral so beautiful as the one that is grown by God’s hand, no pillars so lovely as thee trees, no vaulted ceiling so magnificent as the sky, no choir so sweet as the voice that is raised in worship to Christ and no song so perfect as the one he places in your heart to be sung at that moment.
“in every spring there is a different green.” In all weather there is a different glory. Whether it is the sun drawing patterns on the ground or rain drops clinging to the pine trees green needles. Nothing quite like standing with your face to the sky with the rain pouring down and the breeze blowing gently through your hair.
Ok guys, I need you to pray for my sister. She’s sick and vomiting like crazy. Poor girl. I’m not feeling to well ether.

I was tired. I wasnot feeling well this afternoon but I decided to go anyway. I almost had to do the five minute drill with the sensei. it's a good thing he found me a partner. I thought I was going to die because I was tired. he wanted us to do speed what'it;s in about 1 in less than 1 sec. I could not do that in any sane streach of the imagination. I don't know what happened but during the five minute drill my partner and I bumped heads.
later my partner (from last week and friend) were called up to do uki otosh in front of the entire class because we had done it so well last week(not that i do judo very well or anything). after the class my friend told me that i was a good fighter.
near the end there was an excersize were we split up into groups of three (there is a story behind that number that I will get to). any way it was top bottome out. meaning you got to take turns being on the top, on the floor and watching. my other friend got hurt and could only watch. so rineigh and I took turns. we didnot get to rest it was just go, go go. and painfull. that last round I just let her squish me because i was to tired to do anything. then the sensei called line it up and we were done. thank God. I was sweating to bad my shirt was wet. my leggings were wet.everything else was wet.

(to myself in thought)"if it's so easy why does it hurt?"
I learned a knew throw last night. ouch it's dificult. I did not say I had learnded it very well....
uki othoshe or somehtingh to that effect of spelling. I'm going to need to practice the 5minute drill at home. my left sided stff is not very good. I need to work on that. not that anything i do in judo is very good.
did I mention that the sensei is leaving to go to the olympic training center?
well he is. and I admit that i will miss him.
I also admit that i don't know him that wll. Ill miss him because He's on of the best teacher's i've had. the best teachers for me are the ones that are really tough.
and he's really tough. No I do't have a crush if your gigling while reading this. I just happen to like the way he teaches.
he pushes us all to our limits I think. the say (the older guys apparently) that three minutes fighting josh is three minutes in ---

A few days ago when I was working (I was alone as usual) in my sandy arena (it’s mine when it’s full of weeds it belongs to Mrs. S when it’s full of weeds) pulling weeds when I happened to glance and the horses in the pasture next to me.
They had all stopped that were all looking and listening to some thing in one direction.
They were looking beyond me I could tell that. And listening intently. I looked were they were looking but couldn’t really see anything amiss.
A little while later when I was riding in the sandy arena the pony I was riding, cowboy, stopped and looked in the same direction. His ears were turned and his whole body felt like it was just listening and he really did not want to go over towards that side of the arena.
Was I right to feel nervous and slightly frightened?

I got in "trouble with the brown belt for bashing my wrist against hers in judo. she told me not to strike and that If I did the judges would disqualify me. it's judo, the "gentle way." your not supposed to do that.
what I'm thinking is that yeah, I'm here to learn to fight in a certain style but if I got in a fight with some one for real would I really be expected to use only one style? or would I do everything in my power to defeat my opponent or get away. such as flipping, tripping, kicking punching, smashing bashing baring choking and all that stuff. any way I say I should take ti kwon do or something that incorporates all those move that are not in judo but I can use against my brothers.
I did learn a throw in judo that is "ridiculously effective." you grap the lapel of you uki's gi and the sleeve on the other side (fake and entrance to make room) and drop down onto your back after doing a very strange pivote thing. stick your foot at the hip and roll back. that tosses them or you get tossed funny. when you get it done on you it's wierd becuase once the persone throw ing ou is one his back with his foot on you belt there's not much I could do. :(
I don't like it much when that happens. ugg.
but it's funnto do. I can't for the life of me remember it's name.
I went trail riding today. and got hit with a checkbook when I told my boss that she was out of vitemin e for her horses. and again when ai said we were low on msm.
Tyler took over and just slapped me acouple of times when I tolde her we were also almost out of malinium gold suplaments. I was expecting it so I wasn't surprised. hhehehe.

every time I watch the two towers I watch Haldir get killed. it always sparks thought in me. I mean here is this elf and he is dieing in Aragorn's arms. It's just so sad. I mean I look at him and think, I wonder what is he feeling? I mean elves are not supposed to die and here is this elf, dieing. I wonder what he thought. what were his thoughts upon tasting the bitterness of the gift of the one to men? death was so foreign to the elves. they were never meant to die.
but then again...
neither were we.
when adam was placed in the garden he was not going to die; he was, in the sense of the word, "immortal."
But he had to eat the fruit and sin entered and men died. We bacame "mortal." We were, as humans, never meant to die.
I suppose that is why throughout history discoverers have tried to find the "fountan of youth"
It has always been a desire of man to return to that state in which adam was first formed in the garden of eden and why so many peaple are afraid of death. It is not what was meant to be.
we were never meant to die.
On the other hand our souls do not die with our bodies. they go to heaven or hell.
do you agre with me?

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought
And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.
"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
I now admit to being an alice in wonderland admirer. When the can take a nonsense book and make sense of it….this is so cool!! ok I’m weird. I’m done.
