Sunday was the final day of 2016 Ottawa Comiccon. I particularly enjoyed the Q&A with John Rhys-Davies and Sean Astin. The only trouble for me was that I periodically wondered why my brother was on stage. You see, his nickname is Rudy because of his striking resemblance to Sean Astin.
Me: “Why is my brother on stage?”
Myself: “That’s not Dana.”
I: “Oh, right…”
I visited a weapons booth and the Japanese man there complimented me on my sword grip. I should hope I can hold the handle by now… They were the black plastic weapons. I so wanted to do a real test with them.
This weekend was the first time in a long time that I wasn’t just smiling because it was expected of me. I was smiling because I was truly happy. The past few years have been really hard. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I am on the path and getting a little closer each day, so yay!
It was a great weekend, but also an exhausting one. Recovery time was needed. The introvert in me is screaming for a cave to hide away in, but I have no time for that.
This coming weekend is the annual iaido and jodo Sei Do Kai Spring Seminar in Guelph. This is the most enjoyable of the seminars. We stay in the dorms and have 2.5 days of training mixed with nights of socializing. I’m super excited for this. Hopefully, I catch up on my sleep before then.
The last practice before the big seminar is tonight. Then it’s all cooking and packing for the trip. I think I’m almost done the music, though I’m not quite at 200 songs yet 😉
Well, I have tons to get done before the weekend.
