Yep, from now on, you can expect me to be a bit obsessed not only with drawing and ornithology, but also with karate. I've started with it a few months ago, so I'm pretty much a beginner, but I enjoy it so much! I've just returned from a weekend spent in the mountains with our teachers and fellow students and had a lot of fun - although with some "byproducts" like inability to walk properly due to hurt instep after playing football without shoes, (but on the other hand using hands, grabbing and bumping into other players and shortly: scoring a goal whichever way possible). After hurting my foot, I failed to pay attention and got hit hard with a ball to my head - specifically ear, which hole for an earring is a little bit larger now - though that doesn't help me wearing it at all, since the earring is kind of flat now... Apart from that I have more bruises on my arms and somehow even back and I can still feel the punches on my stomach after being forbidden to use blocks as a way to strenghten our muscles and getting used to pain...
Though I only think positively about it, because I was able to make new friends and the "karatekas" turn out to be nice people
. We played fun games I haven't played in a while or never before and we had a singing evening with a guitar, which was awesome, too
And of course, the trainings were the best
Good thing is at least my hands don't hurt at all so I can draw without any problem
And you can expect me to post a new birdie painting veeery soon! Due to karate trainings I have thrice a week, though, I have less time for drawing now and will have even less in a few weeks when I'll have to do field research for my diploma thesis. But my friend urges me to draw stuff for our wader study group's bulletin we'll be releasing in March and I have some more pictures to draw asap, so I'll keep spending most of my free time with my tablet and will try to be as productive as possible.
Hehe, I guess that's all my pointless rambling for today
I was just bored and was in a mood to write it all down
Oh no, one more thing! I suppose the chance is slim, but isn't there any Goju-ryu Karate-Do practitioner who is thinking about visiting the Spring Gasshuku in Prague in May? (Three masters are coming and it's expected to be rather a big event.) If so, I'd be happy to meet you there!
