Saturday fight

Fought on saturday with Duke Davin, sir timm, Sir villius, Richenza and Constantine.  Honestly, did not want to fight, I am on new antibiotics, I'm tired and itchy with hives from whatever infection my body is fighting.

Glad I armored up though, because fighting Davin is always super fun.  He and Sven are probably my very favorite people to fight.  The day was all about focusing on my hand position in guard, lower center of gravity in stance and widening the stance and throwing thrusts as second or third blows.  I actually had a very pretty flat snap on vilius, so yay.

The practice for the most part had a no ego vibe and I love that.  Duke Thorin was there watching and giving feedback and he told Villius a drill that he Thorin thinks will help me fix my timing problems on the snap and thrust.  I look forward to trying it out.  Villius and I have also been talking about going up to thorin's house once a month or so and working with him individually -- Thorin said he's open to that, so now it is just a matter of getting it on the calendar. 

On another note, I'm still pretty pissed about the new sentence the BoD has proposed for the IE language.  I wrote them an email and sent it today, so at least I made sure my voice was heard.

Also, went to the ENT last Thursday, so I can cross that off my November to-do list.
