LOL cute^^ n well.. cz i as usual.. wanted sum1 2 suffer *chee wei, x jarissa* so i told chee wei 2 teach jarissa maths bt well.. jarissa was pokin me.. signallin she wants me 2 teach so instead i got chee wei 2 write maths q 4 jarissa... gud enuf.. she got all correct.. i hv x idea whether tat is hw she was taught in school bt then.. she is doin reli well ^^ she is such a bright kid.. n as usual.. i make lee ways 4 her when it comes 2 play.. jz 4 brief moments between learning... at least she wont feel stressed up... ^^

so we did english first.. spellin n all.. n then maths.. ^^ n then she started insistin 2 play games.. LOL as usual.. bt well... we waited til 4.. i managed 2 drag d time til 4 b4 we went down 2 play.. ^^ n we played monopoly :D which is in a way a lesson as well.. on money.. :D *very important, indeed...*

so, tatz tutorin nw bck 2 kendo... wat we did was a few things.. kurikaeshi n hiki men is one of d main stuf.. d reason is 2 train our feet movement n swing.. hiki is d toughest waza n true enuf.. LOL howeva, d biggest prob i hv was my right hand was shakin.. sdnly.. it kept on shakin x reli throughout bt it was shakin n it was reli obvi esp durin hiki... noemy gotta hold my hand 2 get it stop shaking... n i was like.. sorry... n it kept on shakin bt slowly it got better... esp when we did our men n kote hits... it was better bt i cn stil feel it shakin.. n durin d one-breath-several-hits it was shaking too bt not tat bad.. x like hiki, at least.. cz my shinai wasnt shaking... it was so obvi during hiki men cz my shinai was reli shaky.. d top part... cz my left was pretty stable.. hohoho

6th Lesson and 12th Practice

okokok yesterday was d 6th lesson wif jarissa.. though initially there was another kid wif me.. bt well, they din reli get along tat well.. so it was pretty tough 4 me 2 handle both at d same time.. neverthless, then another tutor came in and took d other young kid wif him.. i wouldnt say tat it is neither kids fault bt mayb it is within me.. bein a tutor n a teacher in a 20 - 40 students per class is pretty diff.. tutor u gotta get 2 d roots of ur stdnt probs.. a teacher gets d general idea n try 2 work on it... in a way tat benefits evry1.. tatz hw i would put it in words i guess... n teachin grade 2 stdnts who r 7 years old is rrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllliiiiii diff frm teaching those who are 13 and 14.. HOHOHO a great degree of maturity diff.. HUHUHU bt nevertheless, i njoy my volunteering job...

alas jarissa is more clear on place value!! n she could add big numbers now!!! im soo glad she has made it :D i thought her my way n hv no idea if tat is hw it is bein taught in class.. i jz hope im x confusing her.. HOHOHO if tat were 2 happen it is pretty bad i tink.... then i gotta ask her 2 choose which method is she most comfortable with and i will comply 2 it ^^ tat sounds better i guess.. :) so she gave me a biscuit and she wanted 2 play.. bt then xixi wasnt free n tis game needs more than 2 peepz so yeah.. perhaps next week thurs ^^

so d practice... my feet was sposed 2 get better n well.. it did 4 a day.. LOL 2day i had a new blister on d healin one n d skin came off.. i jz cut it n well.. as discussed wif lan.. it is gonna turn into a callus... LOL id rather my feet 2 b a lil bit hard rather than makin squaky noises during surizashi and well... gettin 2 much blisters 2 often... this wil def help 2 make my feet tougher.. bt i wonder y others dun reli hv tis big of a blister.. HOHOHO mayb my feet skin is 2 soft XD i am used 2 wearin sometin on my feet at all times.. *takin care of d skin* bt well, it donest work tat way now....

so 2day we did kurikaeshi, shoumen, and i tink put an immense amount of concentration on footwork as well and about d swing... 2 make our wrist more flex and it will help on wif our swinging... well.. d main thing we did 2day was 2 focus on synch feet work n swingin.. i guess i had my footwork n swingin pretty mixed up when both r done at d same time.. esp when moving frm 1 spot 2 another.. if its stagnant its x tat bad.. bt well... if its moving.. tatz when d prob starts.. HOHOHO practice will help me a lot *i reli hope it will* at least it shud make my blisters worth it if i were able 2 improve myself...

gosh.. its late.. time 2 go 2 bed... i pray 4 d best for all those involved in kent taikai ^^

so 2day's practice... we did kata in d beginnin n i was wif noelle... we did kata 1, 2 and she taught me 5 though i was lost.. LOL i guess i gotta think of it.. n well.. try 2 get it done next wed ^^ it was marsten-sensei's idea 2 pair d beginners wif d seniors.. so yeah... it was pretty intimidating bt well.. i thought.. x tat im gettin hit 4 real *yet.. tat gotta wait til armor comes in* so yeah.. tat set d mood.. n we did it 4 quite some time... after kata was some surizashi.. *i tink* n well... we did it while d seniors were dressing up *x reli dressing up bt puttin their armor* n well... after tat we watchd them have a match... it was reli interesting.. i was tryin 2 use my eyes 2 kinda predict when is d hit a point bt din manage 2 do tat.. LOL trainin!! gotta train my tiny *x exactly tiny, perhaps blurry* eyes 2 b more sharp.. as usual in d beginning my hands were as cold as ice. bt tis time it took a longer time 2 warm up.. pretty much bugged me bt i managed 2 catch on angela 2 get her warm pair of hands.. n i drained it out of her :D *bad meee XD* after d match, then we went down 4 our practice... it was reli short *or so i felt* n well.. i was like.. owh its time 2 go? XD nevertheless, i was feelin a lil bit sick n stil a lil bit.. so paracetamol b4 goin 2 bed.. i felt as if im gonna get a fever... bt it was under control n checkd as i kept on checkin my forehead.. mayb its my back n neck which were releasing 2 much heat... it hurt my head a lil.. but well.. x a biggie ^^
