I got my orange belt in gumdo!

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

What else is there to say? I passed. I did my duelling techniques, patterns, and candle snuffing. Well, there’s also a terminology test too. Phew. I got some of the easier questions.

Though I was not over-anxious about the test (I knew I would pass), I was a little nervous. After all those years of doing taekwondo tests, this is more nerve wracking for some reason. I think it’s probably because there’s less people testing compared to the taekwondo tests I’ve had before. Or maybe I just don’t recall being so nervous as a beginner in taekwondo. It probably wasn’t until I was an intermediate belt that I began to be more relaxed during those tests. Hopefully, I’ll relax more once I get to the higher levels in gumdo too.

I did manage to snuff out the candle again. Yay! This time in considerably less tries. It seems I’m improving on my cuts – getting more control over the power of the strike. The next challenge is snuffing out two candles at once, so that’s something to look forward to along with new forms to learn.

For now though, I guess I should just be happy with doing well on the test (and getting to learn more new stuff). Nathan said I did very well, so I’ll take his word for it. 😀

Training update – taekwondo

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

Okay, I’ve been a little lax the last two days. I did go to taekwondo on Thursday at least. I skipped the gumdo class since I was running late anyway. Taekwondo was good. I got a good workout.

I was going to go to the gym after, but I was working on the self-defence demo – mostly teaching other people what to do for it as I was the one who came up with it (I’m using a variety of stuff I was taught before). The demo is in December so I have lots of time to practice. Right now, it’s just getting people together and letting them know what to do for the demo. Overall, I’m hoping to have a good demo and trying to not get too stressed getting this together. *sigh* I keep telling myself I’ll feel good afterwards for a job well done. 🙂

Song lyrics for Look at Us Now by Sarina Paris

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

Don’t you just hate when those lyrics websites mess up the lyrics? I do and since I couldn’t find the right lyrics for Look at Us Now by Sarina Paris, I thought I should post it here, just because…

Look at Us Now – Sarina Paris

Verse 1:

For all the times that we, we ever were to be
Look at us, baby, look at us now
For everyday that I should have you by my side
We’ll make it, baby, look at us now

For every night I pray, I know that you will say (stay – first time only)
Look at us, baby, look at us now
Remembering the time our love was not so fine
We made it, baby, look at us now

Baby, look at us

Bridge:

Everybody believed we would never be
Look at us, up above, we are so in love
Everyday, in your arms, baby, can’t go wrong
We are strong, look at us now

(Repeat Verse 1)

Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us

(Bridge)

Verse 2:

For every night I dream, together you and me
Look at us, baby, look at us now
And like a flower blooms, the glowing of the moon
We’ll make it, baby, look at us now

Though everyone believed that we could never be
Look at us, baby, look at us now
Now all the hurt is gone, I knew it all along
We’d make it, baby, look at us now

Baby, look at us

Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us

Bridge 2:

For every night I dream, baby, look at us
For every night I dream, baby, look at us
For every night I dream, baby, look at us
For every night I –

Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream,
Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream,
Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream,
Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream,
dream, dream, dream, dream, dream (fade)

Verse 3:

For every night I dream, the more I do believe
Look at us, baby, look at us now
A bird up in the sky, our love we’ll not deny
We’ll make it, baby, look at us now

In all you ever do, I know you will be true
Look at us, baby, look at us now
A story of our kind is one to never die
We’ll make it, baby, look at us now

Baby, look at us

(Repeat Verse 1)

Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us
Baby, look at us

BB,
