Goal met early!

So earlier I’d mentioned that my goal was to get my BJJ blue belt in the next year. Well, that goal has unceremoniously come and gone. I haven’t had a belt since I’ve gone back to class, as I couldn’t find my old ones. Well yesterday morning, my teacher flung a blue belt my way: “Murphy, you need your belt”. I was like, uh, I was a blue belt ten years ago, but don’t feel like one now. Well, once one always one I guess. Now I’m the blue belt who gets beat on by the white belts. There’s only shame in it if I let it bug me, though.

So now my new goal is to actually roll like a blue belt!
