Whatever you're doing right now, you'd rather be doing TaeKwonDo. You'd certainly prefer to be working on your high block than talking to one more person about whatever boring life situation they keep droning on about. It's too bad you can't shut them up with a solid axe kick. You're just trying to make it to the end of the day and planning your next workout. Keep calm and keep kicking. Soon enough you'll be back on the mats where you belong.
