Because Tuesday nights are jodo, and while it makes sense to get home after midnight during the Fall and Winter semesters (when class goes from 10PM till 12AM), during the summer it ends at 9:30PM. But then we go to second dojo (usually some pub where others drink and I eat fries). It's a tradition, and it's a valuable part of our education. Kim is a bastion of fascinating knowledge in budo and life, and it's hard to pass up.
But then there's so much to life, and I've let my other favourite hobby, computing, fall by the way side. That more started due to a rejection of my fundamental self three years ago, where I felt like my own poison, but now I think is a good time to reinvest myself in perhaps my best skill. So, priorities must be re-set, and learning to say "no more" to fun helps.
I won't say no to fun, of course. I'll still hang out with friends late in the evening, but perhaps I can get to bed before 3AM on a work night. :) It's worthwhile. Today alone I managed to:
- meet a friend for lunch
- make a real supper
- ride my bike
- make zucchini bread
- go to the bike center and do maintenance (my left pedal was threatening to fall off)
- go to jodo
- teach someone double my age how to hurt me with a stick
- go for beverages and hear heart-wrenching stories of life and death
- home before 11PM?
