The school looked exactly, how I remembered it. It felt weird, like deja vu. On the way up to Daniel’s room we met Jacob – an old student. Immediately after Kevin appeared – my “brother” from the last year, an important member of Master Du group. Than come Stefan, who I remembered from the autumn 2016. The new students appeared as well. They started to introduce themselves. More old students came. We talked about the school gossips.
- Master Du (Shaolin Master) was not anymore at school 🙁
- Also Master Miao (Tai Chi Master) left the school.
- There were 2 new Masters: Wing Chun Master and Tai Chi Master. I heard different opinions about them, but all were very positive. I was curious.
Daniel’s room was a big mess. We spend the next few hours trying to organize ourselves. At the end we went sleep around 3 am In the “morning” Daniel hugged me and asked to guess what time it was. I said 1 pm. He estimated 11 am. It was 4 pm !!! Again, we were unpacking and cleaning the room.
On Monday morning I went to pick up the bread from the boy, who always arrives in a small car and sells food to the kitchen ladies. After, I went to see Tai Chi class. The new Master movement looked impressive. ( I wasn’t training, because I decided to start training on Wednesday, to have good rest and organize everything).
I felt happy to be again at school. I was motivated. A bit scared about how my body will adapt to the intense training, but motivated.
