      Ok guys, so now it's time for an update.

      So on Monday I will be travelling to the other side of the world for a week and a bit to study karate with some of the worlds top instructors. I've been preparing for about a month to get ready and it's been going well. I've spent the better part of the last month studying Japanese, which is going really well, but I don't know that much yet. As far as I can say, I'm ready for it!

      Hopefully while over there I will be able to get some more writing done. I've finished one of my stories, which has allowed me to look back at the zombie one I wrote a couple of years ago. So far, the works been quite difficult. The basic story line was simple and the writing style easy and descriptive, however, the whole thing was just unrealistic. So with some major re-works and plot twists for the characters, I'm starting to get a half decent story out of it. However, to correctly asses a soldiers reaction to and during a situation, their mentality and their mannerisms (something which is necessary to make it realistic) I need my military advisor (my brother) to return from Afghanistan. Unfortunately, it's going to take a while longer before I can present it to you all again, but it will be worth the wait!

      And one final point, why the hell are there so many damn good American shows right now?!? I wouldn't mind too much, but we don't really get them over here!

    • WTF, Americans?

      7 years ago

      Coleor

      So I was in this old-style sweet shop (candy shop) and I noticed that it sold all these American things like Reeses, Herseys, Babyruth, etc. So I had a look around. We dont really get any of those over here, but it was interesting to see all the different names I had heard over the years. But then I noticed something....

      Peanutbutter! It was in the chocolate bars! Like WTF?? It was in nearly ALL the chocolate bars!

      I like peanutbutter, but not with chocolate. WTF Americans???

    • Bleh.

      Probably long overdue...but hey...get bent.

      Firstly, I'll start by catching you all up on the national championships.....I sucked. In Kata, first round, first Heian Kata (Heian Shodan), I forgot a move. A simple move. Something that I've done a hundred times! I wasn't nervous, I just plain forgot it. So, I lost.
      Anyway, the Kumite....also sucked....although this one wasn't my fault. In my category were some serious fighters. The pricks even had their own personal trainers who would rub their shoulders and shit like in professional boxing!
      Anyway, first fight, the guy just beat his way through my defences. No skill or tactics, or trying the goad me into an attack/counter...but no, just punch so hard that it breaks an arm, them hit them again...

      Next year I'll be in the category above....with the black belts....who sent three guys to the hospital! So I think I'm just going to stick to the local stuff.

      Work still sucks, but the small glimmer of hope now seems to be the trip to Japan in April. But more of that next time ;)

      Oh, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    • Immortals and other stuff.

      7 years ago

      Coleor

      So I just watched Immortals....and well....it was shit. Thats the only PRAISE I can give it. It was shit. If I was 10 years old, I may have liked it.
      I found the storyline tedious and dull, lots of plot line just ebbed out into nothing (possible cutting of story due to time constraints?). The characters (especially the gods) were hardly recognisable from each other. and the costumes were just comical! I couldn't take the film seriously, but I also couldn't laugh at it.
      And for all directors everywhere; slow-motion is cool, but does not MAKE something cool! If done, it needs to be done right.

      But onto better stuff. Our hotel was recently awarded its 5 star status. This is a big deal for us. It means we are the first and ONLY 5 star hotel in Yorkshire!.....but where that means that we will get pay-rises or bonuses to match those of management is probably a question we will discover after we find out is 2012 is the end of the world or not....

      And finally! I've been selected to represent my club in the JKS Karate National Championships next weekend!
      Ok, so I know I'm not going to win many medals, but I'll be competing in Kumite, Kata and Team Kumite events, so who knows? I may get lucky ;)

      Wish me luck!

    • I passed!

      7 years ago

      Coleor

      Yep, I passed the grading. I'm now 4th Kyu, which means Im a purple and white belt (one step away from brown - which is only two more away from black).
      It means that I can now go to Japan next year!

      :D

    • Oh look a new journal!

      7 years ago

      Coleor

      Ok, so I need to write more journals.....

      I mean, seriously, 8 in 7 months? And 0 in the last 2?

      Well, my excuse is that nothing has really happened. I'm still working the breakfast shift at the hotel. Still hate every bit of it. Still cannot find a job in childcare. Girlfriend is still great. Karate is still going good.....

      Well, karate is the only thing I can really talk about (well I could talk more about my girlfriend...but she says I'm not allowed to tell people about that kind of stuff ;) ). So on Sunday we have another grading. It's been 4 months since the last one, but it still seems like only yesterday! Anyway, if I pass this grading then I'm of a high enough level to join the group travelling to Japan in April. It's something I've always wanted to do, and the chance to travel with a large group of friends and spend a week learning karate in the JKS head dojo near Mt. Fuji is something I just cannot miss!
      I have the £2,000 I need to go. Just need the grade now....
      Judging by the other people at my level (and those above), I should do fine. I'm strong, confident and controlled enough to pass easily. But its just the little imperfections that cause me problems.

      I will probably post an update later in the week (after I've rested a little) and let you all know how it's going.

      Well, long story short, Ive been really busy lately.

      Work still sucks, and Im now searching for new jobs. The new flat is great and the girlfriend is still amazing (if a little messy).

      Finally, karate. Ive been putting a lot of effort in lately, mainly so that I am of a high enough grade to go on the Japan trip next year. Im now a purple belt, so I only need to grade once more :)

      Anyway, heres some pictures for you. Thats all for now.

      I did notice that about Courtyard. That is really the only defensible position on the map, aside from the main spawn which gets AI camped so bad that it's almost pointless to spawn there.

      Corvette is nice because your DMR can hit every enemy on the map without them being out of range. Grunts also have only one way of reaching you, so they just line up and soon you hear the cries of happy children...
