Hello human beings and aliens! Welcome or welcome back to my blog and thank you for reading! Last night was my Tae Kwon Do graduation – I graduated to the last belt before black. And OF COURSE I have an update on it – why? Because that’s the job of this blog.
The format of a graduation is basically, everyone graduating to all different belts performs their form, which is a set of moves designed to be an imaginary fight, or their combinations, another set of moves designed to be an imaginary fight, but in a different way. At my old belt, the one that I left behind at graduation last night, we got a musical form, which is like an imaginary fight set to music. At this belt, I actually know some of the curriculum because of a thing I do on Sundays with black belts! At least I have a heads up going into the hardest belt there is…
But anyway, after all the belts have performed, we have a potluck. My family always brings pizza because it’s the easiest, but no one knows who brings it. It’s actually hilarious to see certain people whom I don’t like and happen to be graduating with me eating pizza they don’t know is from me. And after the potluck, which usually goes extremely late, we head back home and secretly get more food as a family. It’s really awesome.
This graduation, I decided to make a statement, and I went with a green and silver stripe in my hair. It was amazing. Pics should be up soon.
Unfortunately, the brown belts didn’t get to perform Exodus because of a mistake in scheduling. I’m kinda disappointed, but all it means is at the next test I get to, because I’ll be graduating to black belt.
But for now, I’ll enjoy the new belt I have – it’s amazing.
This graduation was really sad for me, for one because it was the last graduation before black belt. Where did the carefree gold belt days go? 😭
It was also really sad because the 1st Brown classes (my new belt) are way different from my old belt’s classes. And two of my absolute best friends at Tae Kwon Do graduated to that belt tonight, as well as another one of my best friends at Tae Kwon Do, who was already at that belt. I’m really sad because I’m not going to be able to talk to them as much.
Luckily, I have my friend Anah going to 1st Brown with me – we’re equally nervous. I can’t wait to see everyone that I knew at 2nd Brown – a bunch of people I know are already there, so that’s awesome!
It’s strange – I should be happy, but I miss being the 7 year old white belt who couldn’t do a sidekick. I miss when one of my BFFs Eleanor started Tae Kwon Do but had to quit when she moved. I miss when I fought with someone I knew over something so unimportant, I don’t even remember what it was.
I guess it’s time for new beginnings, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday at Tae Kwon Do. Hopefully I don’t mess up TOO badly.
Thanks for reading! Got to do yet more spelling! Bye!! ❤ ❤ ❤ 😀 😀 😀
