A Week of Change

This week… things change.

For one, classes are starting back up. I’m taking Conduction on Wednesdays, International Operations of Fridays, and Service Operations Management every other Saturday.

There’s nothing entirely unusual about this class schedule… but now I have an added commitment.

On Saturday, I am proud to report that I was promoted to blue belt in kung fu.
Looking at the following Kung Fu Belt Progress chart, you’ll see that I’m inching closer and closer towards the coveted black belt.


What does this have to do with added commitment? Well, blue belt and up is considered ‘advanced.’ This means that the class times will increase from one to two hours. This doubled time commitment will increase my weekly training from 3-4 hours to 6-8 hours. I also suspect the classes will get a bit more vigorous and I will be expected to reach new levels of fury.

It’ll be interesting to see how all this plays out.

In other news, keep your eyes open in the features section for a follow up on last night’s amazing roller derby bout.

    I am very curious as to why the blue belt falls between purple and red. Why don’t they do it like a spectrum, and put purple in between blue and red? Oh, S. McQuaid, where are you in these troubled times?

    So when you get promoted is there an audible *ding* noise and floating “LEVEL UP” text above your head? That’s how I imagine it, anyway.

    Either way, congrats!
