07/24/2002 Archived Entry: "Aikido or Karate...?"

I did some weight lifting today. Yah, I have to appease the parental figure. I think I'll be OK. I hope so. I've been thinking about what martial art I want to take and I think I'll look into taking karate at the Aikido of San Jose dojo. They started teaching it more recently, so I don't know anything about it. You see, I've been thinking about taking aikido again, but at this age and with the amount of time I would have to take it, I don't think I can make up for my last... what was it... five years absence. ^_^; Aikido is extremely hard to learn, so I don't think I'll have time to get really good at it. Karate, like any martial art, isn't exactly easy to learn, but it's far easier than aikido. Hm... I'll have to go to the dojo sometime. I'll take a little time to decide which one I want to take. The dad should be satisfied.

Yesterday, on a whim, I picked up the first volume of Real Bout High School. It's pretty interesting. I want the second volume! =( I know it's out there... I just need to go out and buy it. Azumi's pretty cool. ^_^ Must... buy... more....

You know what? I have a friend... and he's no longer a gamer... and... and... he gave me his old SNES! Woo! ^_^ It was in some pretty bad shape cause it was in storage for many, many years. You know... the classic dirty and kinda discolored NES/SNES? Yah... it's one of those. =( Oh well... I cleaned it up quite a bit, so it's looking a lot nicer. I just need to clean up a little more and I'm having trouble thinking of something to clean it with. I've already used hand soap, dishwashing detergent, and even rubbing alcohol, but it's just not enough. Anyone have any suggestions on a fairly strong cleaning agent?

Now this is just cool. Yah, Hikaru no Go rulez! ^_^

what's your inner flower?

Don't be so freaked out about the permit test. It's actually really easy. I "studied" (more like skimmed) the driving booklet the night before and I passed, missing I think it was three questions. It's extremely easy. Just hope you don't get those "you have to be -- feet from..." or "you have to be -- inches from...." Bah! Those questions suck. They don't even have a use! Ask any driver and they won't know the answers! Stupid permit tests.... Anyway, it's easy. Really. Trust me.

So we're in the same boat, eh? I feel you pain....

I suppose sports in general aren't bad... but... well... I never got good at any sport. I was never exactly not fit, but in PE class I was generally the worst player on the team each and every time we played a team sport. I was the most disposable member of the team. Yes, I was sad. That's why I despise PE to this day. I ruled at individual stuff like running or swimming, but when it came to basketball, baseball, hockey, etc. I sucked royally. Aside from running and swimming, the only other sports I've excelled at are martial arts. That's one of the reasons why I love them so much (they also look so~ cool! ^_^).

Thanks for the advice you posted earlier, I'll think about that when I make my next layouts =D~ Anyways, SNES's are happy fun! XD, I'd give you my games since no one touches the SNES anymore @_@; But have fun and good luck cleaning! Sorry I can't give any recommendations on cleaning supplies since you already used rubbing alcohol ^^;; .. Karate is fun, it's like ballet, except there's no choreography and the dancers hit each other XD;

*laughs* I have an old beat-up SNES too, although it's been ages since I've used. Ah, good ol' days, and whatnot. As for a cleaner, try a bleach kind like Comet, or one of those kitchen cleaners like 409.

Yep, Hikago's great. ^^ My Japanese sucks, so I read the scanlations from TW. Hikago inspired me to learn Go too, although I can't say I'm any good at it. XD
