SHODAN!

Hi there!

Sorry I haven't been able to email you in the last few days - I've been busy and unable to get into the city to use the internet. Howevere, I have good news! I passed my grading! The people here were very nice to me, and I am going to try to keep in contact with as many as I can. I gave my card to lots of people, and told them to look me up if they ever came to Melbourne, and I'd see what I could do about organising some training together at my dojo.

There were some minor dramas, mostly to do with organisation, but all in all it went well. We are staying in a nice hotel tonight, and I am happy to be out of a bunk bed. :)

Today we are going to Stockholm, and tomorrow we will be heading into Paris. It's all very exciting, and I am so glad that I don't have to mind my Ps and Qs the whole time.

Everyone is still mistaking me for being Swedish and asking me directions. :)

I'll try to write again soon. :)

PS - I got a SHINBASH photo for nuwishas_tail. :)

Yay! Go you! Definite celebrations and major ticker-tape parade on your return!

Happy to report that by major lack of doing anything we've all managed to keep bishi_wannabe alive. Aren't you proud of us? ;)

Congratulations!

I had a friend who got mistaken for being a local when he was in France. However, luckily for him it was because he spoke French so fluently and without an accent that they thought he was French!

Enjoy Paris.

Well done! Not, of course, that I ever doubted your ability to stab people with a pointy stick, but it's good to see you getting the international recognition you deserve ;)

I didn't, but I gave him mine and he promised to email me. The swedish boys were all ace, and I told them all to come down and visit some time. :)

OMEDETOU GOZAIMASU! Congrats, Sempai! There was no doubt in my mind that you'd be fine, but it's great to hear the news all the same. Looking forward to seeing you when you get back to Melbourne and can mock me at training once more with your mighty Shodan Skillz. =P

In the meantime, enjoy Europe and take care. Shinbashi!! :D

So how are we meant to address you now? Do you have a fancy title? Sueden no go-usagi-sakana-sama?

Well done and congratulations!

Now you are the same grade as me at long last, though I have absolutely no doubt that you must be better trained. I have not practiced for years.

Kinda do miss it..
