why do we have exams anyway??
I have been informed of something crap. I won’t be able to compete for England at the Europeans this coming Easter because I have an exam. Oh, yay!! Granted, I was a bit unsure whether I actually wanted to put the time in that would have been required of me, but at least I could consider it. But now I know that there is no way that I can actually compete. So it looks like I won’t become European champion this year either then… ;)
I think that I have been cursed when it comes to me competing in Taekwon-Do. Honestly!!! My first European Championship I tore a few ligaments and tendons in my ankle (I've got proof…this is me just after it happened) during a warm-up the day before the competition started. Last year, chronic severe (yay!!) tonsillitis meant that i couldn't train at all, so even though I was well when the competition took place after Easter, the selection for the team takes place just before Christmas… Obviously this also meant that I couldn't compete at the World's that took place during the summer this year, as I wasn't in the team. Next one is not for another two years. And then this time around, I have a lovely exam to look forward to instead!! I'm cursed I tell you, cursed!! :p
Now all I have to do is to figure out how to tell the England coach, who practically begged me to come to squad training last time I saw him, that I won't be competing next year either…tusan också!!
