Seriously. Waste your time with all the stand-up training you want. The fight’s going to the ground anyway. Every MMA fight degenerates into a boring hugging contest. You know it, the ref knows it, the fans know it.

Let’s not spill hot tea on my white cashmere sweater two hours before my first performance review at Office Job, shall we?
I’m going to have to miss Kung Fu tonight (again) to practice karate moves with some sensei friends. Turns out I’m being evaluated at Karate Job too, in two weeks. I need to work on my self-defense and grappling. Everything else should be pretty solid. My form has always been excellent, but they’re also making sure I know how to teach all the moves, not just do them (an important distinction). I’m feeling pretty good about it. Except for the grappling. Yikes.
The good news is that I remember something about a raise if my performance review at Office Job goes well. And if I pass my evaluation at Karate Job, I definitely get a raise. So this is all good stuff, it’s just stressful. Plus the car, and Boyfriend, and Russian Neighbor, and I’m sure I could think of something else that was bothering me if I wasted time to complain some more. But I’m gonna pass on that. Doesn’t seem worth it.
