Eternal Spring (Relax, Ladies and Gentlemen)

I came back from school quite late today. 7-ish, because I was lazy to leave school after 5 (that's when the Citra Warna practice ends). I'm not complaining. I had a nice B-Ball game while waiting. Tho going home was a pain, I managed to get a taxi and arrive home before my mom skinned-- I mean, scolded me.

Naturally, I was exhausted. Walking for 30 minutes, then waiting for another 30 minutes while I fruitlessly try to flag down a taxi. And in the middle of it, some bugger on a bike passed me on the road with his middle finger sticking up.

WTF, man. I think I know you, but c'mon, wouldn't a simple 'Hi' or 'Hello' be fine? You had to flip me off. Does your dad own the road? Or is it somehow listed in your grandmother's last will? I mean, a 'Hey, asshole' would've just been fine too. But no, it had to be your middle finger. What I would do to snap it off.

Oh well, at least I didn't see your hell-spawned face, so that was good. I mean, you were obeying road rules by wearing a helmet (despite having no manners at all) and I'm happy for you (drop dead, man, everyone will be happy).

Okay, out of topic there. What I wanted to say is that as soon as I got home, I did a quick change of clothes and flopped on the bed. It was seven at that time. When I woke up... it was already 12.30pm. I know, wicked, right? I was lucky because I haven't prepared my school stuff yet.

After all stuff was done and done, I checked the Net. And boy, I found out some people out there are not having a good week. Take deep breaths, people. You won't like that negative energy accumulating in your body.

Do it the way Ip Man does it. Spiritually, like his Wing Chun fighting style.

Yeah, Ip Man rules. Oh, and as I was saying...

Quoted from Wikipedia, everyone's favourite online encyclopedia;

Wing Chun (Chinese: 詠春; pinyin: Yǒng chūn; literally "Eternal Spring"), also romanized as Ving Tsun or "Wing Tsun" (and sometimes substituted with the characters for "eternal springtime") is a concept-based Chinese martial art and form of self-defense utilizing both striking and grappling while specializing in close-range combat.

So think of it as like this quote, ''When life gives you lemons... you make lemonade.'' Yeah, the Eternal Spring martial art of fighting is similar. You take an attack, but instead of taking it to the gut, you grapple onto the attack, divert it from yourself and use that opening to counter attack. Smart, eh?

So when something bad happens, you do an Ip Man. Take it, block it, divert it, and strike back. All logic and timing. Girls should know this, since Wing Chun (from what I heard) is used mostly by female martial artists... and some feminists I know. Few men like Ip Man use this style and when you do... well, you get Bruce Lee's grandmaster of kung fu.

Okay, I'm getting off topic again. But you readers know what I mean. Take it slow and everything will turn out right. You just have to suck it up and bear with it. When the time's right, you seize that golden opportunity and show everyone that you can be the frickin' best.

Thanks for reading!
