atarashii kata o narau!
Today I had, to quote Lymond, a damned carking afternoon — but then I went to karate and instead of doing sparring (which I was very much not in a state of mind for), I got to learn pinan nidan, which is the next kata in the sequence.
It’s amazing how easily something like that can improve my mood.
And then I went and had tasty tasty fried rice with crab. So my day is looking fair to have a much better ending than it did a start.
