Sumo

Example

Well a schedule finally seems to be falling into place, although it is a difficult schedule. I've gone from 9 hour days in the cushy corporate world to 12+ hour days in the student world. Which explains why I haven't had much time to write here. I'm just too tired.

This isn't meant to sound like I am complaining. I LOVE my classes! They are so much fun and I feel way more alive than I have in a long time. I knew that going to school and working part time would not be easy and I knew I would have to make sacrifices. So far it is all worth it.

The worst part of my schedule is the impact on Andrew..... He never sees me! And when I do finally get home I'm ususally so exhausted I'm not much fun to be around. He is a trooper though and is as supportive as ever. Thanks sweetie!

Today was the first day we have had all to ourselves since I started school.
Example

We decided to go to the Missouri Botanical Garden Japanese Festival. This year's speciality was Sumo wrestling. I was worried it might be boring but it was really fun to watch. The two men are from Hawaii, Fats and Tyler. Tyler is the larger one...550lbs. I didn't know anything about Sumo wrestling so it was really interesting. I hope they come back again next year.
Example

And of course we went to see the Taiko drummers which is my favorite every year. LOVE it!
Example
When I get a regular job again and have some free time I would love to find a way to join the local Taiko group. If you ever have the chance to see a group perform I highly recommend it.

Time to read about the history of Greek decorative arts. Hope you are all well.

Hey! I just realized that since you quit your job, I don't know your email address. Can you email me your mailing address please?

Bottom line: You're doing it! Lots and lots of people talk about it, but few of us actually take the risk to follow our dreams. I really am impressed (Andrew, you're a sweetheart to be there for her). Just super!!
