Ok, there are a couple things I am behind on talking about. My Valentines day post will likely be tardy. Anyway, I'll get on with it.
First off... I finally quit salsa. I tried. It wasn't for me. Not this team anyway, I don't want to get into details and complain about it here. But it just hasn't been a fun experience. It could get better and just might this time, but I've had to make a decision. We're kind of on a team break. We're all taking individual lessons right now. This means that we're out of contract. I've been trying to decide for a while, actually. I've been holding on to how cool it COULD be. But it's been more drama and stress than anything else so far. When I started kickboxing I found this group of people who just amaze me. Everyone is like one big family and truly care about each other. I have never experience a group of people that really care about me as an individual outside of the given activity through which i met them. I realized that in a few months when salsa goes back to full time I wouldn't have time for both and I would have to make a choice. I think this new found group could be really good for me, especially when it comes deployment time and I really need support and not to just be occupied. So, rather than just waiting until i had to sign the contract, I figured I would just cut the ties now and leave my salsa group. I will miss it, I do already. But I will also like having a little more free time, a little extra cash, and a whole lot less stress.
On a funner (yes, I said 'funner') note, yesterday Monkey, his little bro, and I went to a rock climbing gym. It was a lot of fun and I think we're all excited to go back some time. Our forearms are soooo sore, though! The hardest part was keeping a grip on the rocks.
