Spring has definitely came in Shanghai. The weather is sunny and windy, flowers are blooming blah blah blah. Overall, its great. With this change in seasons it seems there is a change for my little life as now I'm packing to head back to the United States. Three suitcases and a book bag are able to fill most of my things. I am leaving some of my things like winter clothes, some books, paints, and drawing supplies.
Since I am leaving I've been doing some last minute things but I realized there isn't much last minute things that I want to do. The real last minute thing that I wanted to do was the Tai Chi and Kung Fu classes. I'm happy that I got that in as I've been able to learn one form called ”十步拳“ (shibuquan). The translation is "Ten Step Fist/Punch". I will continue to practice this and this form has actually inspired me to do something with other martial arts that I practice.
I don't really remember any of the karate forms being enjoyable to me but I have forgotten those. Maybe if I get a chance to go to a karate place again I can see what one I really want to learn. But, that is my idea; to learn and remember one form from each art then, continue to practice it on my own forever and ever maybe one day working to create my own set of forms/katas to help others learn.
What kind of progress have you guys been making in life, work or school?
