Wow, I guess I've sort of neglected this internet journal thing for awhile, eh? I've never been the most reflective person. It's not that I don't think the "big think" questions, it's just that sometimes I have trouble, you know, expressing myself in words. I'm more of a in-your-face, show-not-tell kind of chick, you know? Maybe I can work on that.
Willow's been really busy lately. I've been trying to offer her as much distraction as I can so that she doesn't get swallowed by all her magick books. Even though I've know Willow for over a year now, I still haven't gotten used to the whole magick thing. I guess it's because my power are so different. The Slayer power is rooted in your body and Willow's power doesn't really require the strength of her body, it's more rooted in her mind. It's the whole world she's a part of that I'm never going to completely understand. Sometimes I wish I understood that side of her more though... Oh well.
Work's been pretty uneventful. Some pretty strange characters wind their into the YWCA, but it keeps things interesting. Interesting in that non demon-y way that I'm so fond of. I guess I kind of wish that people would understand that self defense classes aren't Tae Bo for Fitness classes. Sometimes I wonder if the reason these girls show up in my class is to learn how to defend themselves against the things that lurk in the night, or if they just want to prance around to work on their figure.
Whatever, they learn really fast if they belong in my class. I treat every girl who I teach as if she were a Potential in the Buffy's back yard. I've seen too much in this past year to take a solid martial arts education for granted. Knowing how to cripple someone's solar plexus can be the difference between living and dying, and hopefully, by the time these girls leave my room, they appreciate their lives a little more.
I think I'll go and see if my download of The L Word has finished yet. We don't get Showtime, because, hello, lots of people on a budget. The show rocks, though some of the girls are kind of boring, or...insane. Totally love Dana, though. She's all like, the lesbian sporty girl of the pack. I wonder why I can relate... Anyway...yay for gay girls on television. Maybe I'll drag Willow away and make her watch some gay girly goodness with me. Yes, let's do that.
