Ok ok I’m useless and keeping up with this blog, but I’m well intentioned. Now I shall begin a super update of everything that has gone on.
FIRST, the World Championships. This was one of the best things I’ve ever done, I had such a fantastic time and loved every second. The plane was ace, it had films and tv and and outside camera (very cool on takeoff and landing), try as I might I couldn’t sleep on the way back because there was soooo much to watch, so I made it up in a French airport while we waited 7 hours for our flight back (not so amasing). Anyway, the tournament itself was ace, so many people who love martial arts, and nobody was rude or anything, sure a few fights broke out (that weren’t intended) but usually it was coaches arguing with judges which is just them supporting their fighters. Do you want to know about me? I came second, yes second in the World! it’s a pretty awesome title….not a huge amount of competition but nevermind, I was happy with my performance. My good friend Izzy did great as well and only missed out because of slippery mats and biased Canadian judges (boo) - speaking of which Izzy has just taken her Second degree Black Belt, no results yet but she’ll have done it easy :) Canada itself was cool, although I would rather of been in a less French part lol still the food was heavenly, ate at a proper American diner every morning! Did I mention that we got taken to and from the hotel in yellow schoolbuses!!!!
Hmm this was meant to be a quick super update…not going that way….nevermind, CONTINUE, SECOND, my birthday :) well being 22 it wasn’t the biggest birthday ever, but I insist that every birthday should be great and it was. Samantha suprised the hell out of me by turning up out of the blue when I thought she was in Manchester, best, birthday present, ever! I don’t think she’ll ever forget the look on my face, she’s amasing :) she also got me tickets to see Michael McIntyre! (think I mentioned that?) He was truly amasing and we both laughed our heads off, I highly recommend his new dvd Showtime. Also my Dad got me a really nice pair of headphones and the sound quality is superb :) hmm too many smiley faces…… :)
THIRD, Special Constable application. This is slightly more complicated, I now have a timetable for my training in the new year and at least one of my references has been accepted, but I haven’t passed my medical :/ (remind me someone to tell you what happened on the morning I went for my medical), anyway, apparently I have a hearing problem?!?! I’ve miss heard plenty of people but thought I just wasn’t paying attention…perhaps not. At least I know now, I’m going to see a specialist on the 6th, *fingers crossed*. I’m hoping this doesn’t cause a problem with my application as I’m so looking forward to it *toes crossed*.
Anyway that’s me done for now, hopefully do some more updates soon. I’m going to go watch the rest of Les Miserable 25th Anniversary then go to bed, night!
