I went to see Atlantis with Randi this afternoon. It was great! I love it! We noted some interesting connections about the use of a star and that a few theories say the Atlantians were the "Star People" mentioned in other cultures. Aliens, who brought all kinds of technology to this world. Also, the use of spirals and circles was so predominant in the city. Have you noticed how every culture builds a lot of things around circles or circular cycles? Almost every religious symbol involves a circle: Celtic knots, the pentagram, circle of life, the list goes on... I had really already thought of the entire circles and cycles thing years ago, but it was great seeing it hit Randi for the first time. Was I that happy when I made the connection? I dunno. Hmmm... Connections are fun...

On the drive back we enjoyed the thunderstorm moving in and talked about the puzzles life presents. Randi commented that you're always getting little pieces to the the big puzzle, and by the time you can put it all together, it's too late. She continued to say that it was so great that everything was coming together so ewell the last couple of days. I had to agree with her a lot of stuff seems to be coming together recently. Don't you think so? Jenni, Dusty? I added, "Makes you wonder if it's really too late and we just don't know it yet."

Anyhow, I continued on to dojo after that. I was 30 minutes late. ^^;; We worked on the basic nine and 1st dragon as well as panther claw. ^_^ Elm says i'm getting good. *happiness* When we were going into a katta set after working on panther, Elm decided to do a random test by moving an arm towards me in a crane attack. I caught it with a panther claw block and brought my other hand in a punch at his chest/face area without really thinking about it. He fell back against "Mr. Bag" hard enough to slam it into the wall. I turned and started katta without really realizing what I had done. Strange for me who would usually spend five minutes apologizing for something like that. The phone rang, and Elm went to get it.

As I did katta, it felt as though I had broken my pinky on the punching hand, it felt like a splinter of bone was on the outside of the pinky and had been pushed up one knuckle length. Very painful. I went over to the green mat, panicked saying something was wrong with my hand even as Elm was telling me it was Randi on the phone for me. I think I scared Elm. Hell, I was scared, and trying to determine for sure whether or not it was broken. Elm told Randi he'd call her back and got me to describe the pain and told me it wasn't broken, it was a reaction to the attack on him a moment earlier. Apparently one of my nerves, one connected to the heart chakra, was freaking out because I had just launched a chi blast at Elm, and it had come out through my pinky. It's happened to him before. The pain went away with his prescribed reaction, so my thought now is, "I gotta learn to control that!" Heh, I'm excited at the prospect.

But it kind of explains my reaction and thoughts, or lack there of. I'm used to random attacks astrally... Doing a quick energy blast to get rid of the attacker and continuing without much thought or reaction to what I've done is a conditioned reaction. I guess it hurts to do that on fellow humans without being properly prepared. Not to mention I had just charged a ton of energy from the thunderstorm outside. So it was a lot to be releasing all of a sudden, since I wasn't being terribly careful.

Oh. And no, no Shadow Walker today. Since the local wind spirit has been a good friend for so long, and my fav thing to do has been creating storms, 'Walkers tend to avoid me during storms around here.

Well. Jen is banned from dojo for a month for kicking her little brother... oops. She still hasn't been fully updated on the "situation", but we'll talk tomorrow. I hope.

With 'Walkers monitoring the dojo, I wonder just what's going though It's mind... Why watch there? What is the importance? What will I do if the attack comes there, and no one else is there who can sense them? It is probably best that way though, fewer in danger...

That's how I feel. Crummy.

Today I have to:
Go to my bullshit excuse for a calculus course, where I am one of about 5 people who didn't fail the midterm, and the only one who got an A on it. And I had to show the teacher where he messed up a problem on the board and was trying to declare the textbook wrong. Of course, he was only working the problem because some people in that class can't be bothered to do the homework since they don't have to turn it in, and then they freak when he doesn't hand out a practice test prior to the 3rd of 4 quizes in the class. They screwed themselves on that. If they would just read the chapter they'd be fine. So encouraging... Why am I going again?

Study for a quiz in my bullshit Calculus class tomorrow.

Study for a test in my history class tomorrow.

Finish my Engineering Physics problems that are due tomorrow.

And... Pack for that 4.5 hour drive home tomorrow afternoon.

I'm so fucking drained. On top of that, there are currently three spirits that have taken residence in my dorm. One I never hear from, but another girl I know does. She's more prone to picking up on ghosts than I am, so I guessing it's a ghost. One of the others, I'm not sure if it's a ghost or something else, has really bothered me much, it just sings at random intervals, like when i'm trying to go to sleep. I've tried the theory that its music from other people in my dorm, but no one in the dorm listens to celtic music, save me. And the third and final one showed up about three weeks ago. I'm pretty sure it's some form of Shadow Walker. Don't worry if that term doesn't ring a bell with you, it's a type of spirit i've come across in the last couple of years, they are dangerous pains in the ass to deal with in most cases. It has taken to making several minor attacks on me, resulting in some rather nice bruises. It has also taken to basically following me around the building on one or two evenings, but seems to be particularly attached to the laundry room. It drives me up a wall when it follows me, because my first instinct is to attack it, and I really can't deal with that right now. Yay... I technically could dispatch it, permanently, but it's weaker than what I have dealt with previously, and I don't want to hurt destroy it if I don't have to.

So that's how things are going, between classes, club, and my two buddies in the dorm, i'm drained as hell energy-wise and i've had no time in which to replenish that energy. Thank the gods next week is spring break. The first half i'm going to New Orleans with my family, the second, i'm staying home. Rest. Re-cooperation. I'm desperately in need.
