It's been a while. Come to think of it's been more than two weeks since I last posted anything here, and its not like I was planning on being away for so long nor did I suspect it. Oh well sorry for such an absence, and it won't happen again, I promise (fingers crossed :p).
The first two and a half of weeks of this trimester, and things have been going fine. I've already had two tests so far believe it or not! Almost two weeks off for christmas and new years, but they shouldn't call it a break or a holiday. They should call it something along the lines of study leave. Tests, assigments and projects are all due right after the so called "christamas break". I suppose it's the same with everyone else too. Studies have kept me occupied with so much more than I can handle, and I've never actually felt free enough to come online to post in my blog or on the english sabla. I haven't even been on msn messenger for ages. Oh well I guess that all comes with the package that I wish I'd never taken.
The biggest thing that has happened (in my lil stagnant life) since I last posted was with no doubt the kickboxing training camp I went on. It was a good opportunity to do some hard intensive training in a focun environment. It was held over a weekend (2 nights, 3 days) at a recreational camp in a terrific location. Some of the topics that were covered throughout the 9 intensive training sessions included:
* Self-Defense / Street-Fighting
* Filipino Single and Double Stick Fighting
* Advanced Muay Thai
* Filipino Knife Defense
* Trapping & Grappling
* Multiple Attacker Drills
* Filipino Kickboxing
* Advanced Kicking
Obviously there were other activities packed in as well. The place was great, and by the beach. The weather was wonderful. The sessions were packed with so much knowledge and information that they somehow manage to keep you yearning for more. It was a fantastic, extremely beneficial and unforgettable experience and I'm already looking forward to the next camp.
Enough about that. Christmas is just around the corner, and people have been in the holiday spirit for quite a while now. There couldn't be a better time for shopping than this time of year, with irresistible sales and offers all over the place. It's pretty much their version of eid and boy do they make the most out of it! I must admit it's quite entertaining to even lay back and watch all the festivities as they take place.
No, I don't have any plans for New Years eve yet. I don't know when I'll have any plans, if I do make any that is. And yes, it's not rocket science.. it's quite obvious its a leeetle sad in my life right now. But since I'm on holidays now, I'll be posting much more often.
