I was supposed to meet my best friend & her husband this morning — would have missed class — but hadn’t heard anything by almost 10, so I sent her a final text saying I was going to class and headed over.

Small group. Rolled with Guillaume to warm up, maybe 20-30 minutes. He had a question about trying to go to X-guard from open guard, then said he figured the best way was for me to just stop moving around. Lol. Yeah, no… Showed him the drill from Emily’s DVD, and then showed how I would set it up from there (get both hooks behind the knees, reach behind one ankle, then pull/pivot. He had been trying to dive in from having almost zero contact, and it was just too easy to step away.).

By the end of the round, I had a text back about meeting for lunch. (They had slept in, as I figured) I had time for one more round, so rolled with Sara until 11, then left to get ready and meet up with them. Really long lunch; I just got back a short while ago.

Something that came up during lunch was obsessions with hobbies. I’ve realized recently that I’m not very stressed out now when I miss a class. I no longer feel as if I’ll lose all my jiu-jitsu knowledge if I skip a class or as if I’ll miss TheOneCrucialDetail! that makes it all work. I’ve decided that I like having a life, even if some nights that just means sitting on my couch.
