From September on: 4th KYU!

Guess what! I finally took the chance and took the 4th kyu exam. It was not easy, but I felt like I did my best. Sensei's comment was that I did not do my best at all, that I did way better on trainings. Probably the anxiety in the exam situation brought this about. There were parts I liked, and parts I was struggling with, but in the end I made it. After the exam I felt a huge rush of endorphins through my whole body and a huge happiness that I had the guts to do it. I had to...two years passed by since my last exam. Sensei commented on that, too. He also said that I got the 4th kyu, with his indulgence, but he is giving it to me only from September on. Until then I have to correct the mistakes he pointed out and do better and better. He also said that I should be taking the exams more regularly. From now on, I have promised to myself to persevere and never abandon this path. 

Reina's Transformation

As you may already know, I was on a training camp for a whole week. Lots of training, kyu exam but also lots of fun with nice people, grilling, swimming in lake Balaton and last but not least, some styling. Our lovely Reina has been transformed from a cute little girl into an even cuter young lady. I think she really liked the end result. However she found that it took a bit too long and that she could not incorporate the whole makeup and hair session into her daily routine.

Special thanks to Mesu and Jazmin who have collaborated and actually taken the initiative of this quick transformation.
