August 24. Which is a Thursday, which I think is stupid. School shouldn't start on a Thursday. And they changed the start and end times, so I can't make it to my make-up graduation for taekwondo (I can't make it to the regular graduations). -sigh- Oh well. We scheduled an in-class graduation on the 29th, so I just have to wait two week longer than I normally would. But that's okay. My next belt is a brown belt with a black stripe, and I have a really dark brown belt (people think it's a black belt), so people really won't be able to tell that easily if I have my new belt yet or not in the week until my graduation.
I'm kind of excited for school to start, though, because I might be doing more instructor stuff during the school year - my master is going to ask the owner if they need anyone to help out. And I'd like to work on Saturdays, if we bring back Saturday classes, which I hope we do. Honestly, I think we should keep the open gym on Fridays that we were trying out for the summer and still have Saturday classes. I think that would be better for our students. And we need to have more Ninja Nights. I love helping out with them! Besides, being at TKD super late at night is awesome!
Also, this is my last school year before my black belt test! It's coming up next August (unless I need more training or less training, then the time will change. If less training, then I'll test in May, if more training, I'll test in November or even later, if I need even more training)! I can't wait! THERE'S A REALLY LONG WARM-UP AND AN HOUR AND A HALF OF SPARRING! :D
. . . I must sound insane . . . But I really am looking forward to it.
