My kung fu school just moved to the fourth floor of 883 Boylston St., but we've taken to practicing out on Commonwealth Ave. in the park that runs down the middle. I believe this was the first time they tried it, so we got all kinds of interesting looks as we paraded a block carrying swords and staffs with us. Did I mention our school uniform is all black?
Today also marked the first time I got to train with weapons. Woohoo! I now know the very rudiments of using a staff. I guess it's time to look into investing in long, large, polished wooden sticks. I should avoid getting overexcited though, I managed to smack my right shin in the same place three times trying different techniques.
Speaking of investing, does anybody who reads this living in Boston play with the stock market? New hobby, looking for other people with similar interests.
I just found out two of my cousins in Toronto (older sister and younger sister) have blogs. The web is so great. I can get a glimpse into the lives of people I don't have the opportunity to see on a regular basis. Then again, that could be detrimental to consistent personal communication. Interesting social question to examine later.
