I was hoping some of you would be able to help me with time and stress management recommendations. I've posted in the past about how stressful my job is - lots of competing deadlines, complex/multifaceted objectives, lots of meetings cutting into my working hours, lots of traffic on the way to work ...
Hi again everyone, I'm going to use this thread to occasionally talk about my progress. I have been doing karate for about two months now. This evening I took my yellow and orange belt tests and passed with a B-. I had to put in a lot of extra work to do it, and it still wasn't anywhere near perfect...
i'm going to university for medical laboratory technology this fall. i chose this major instead of regular biology/biomedical science because the employment prospects are much better. the course is very practical with a lot of focus on labs. many of the labs are timed. we are also expected to learn...
So i went to see the disability advisory service who said that some arrangements could be made to help organise my self in the future. she also said that the person marking this piece of work will be notified about my condition so that i hopefully wont be penalised for it. Great news! How are you d...
Hi Poodle, I won't address the maturity part as Ram already gave a good reply. I'll address the student loan and job part if you are interested in my input. (Source, I'm 29, have a "useful degree," "good job," and $22k USD student loan debt). Student Loans: If they are federal st...
I took my first class today! The owner of the studio said one of the most uncoordinated people he'd ever seen is now a fifth degree black belt! It took him a very long time to get there and he had to work very hard. All I really learned today were some very basic punches and blocks. You know what? I...
Tom and Ram, thanks for the replies! I will definitely choose my instructors carefully! I want someone who will push me to do better but understand that I may take longer to master things.
Hi All, I've been feeling down and unmotivated recently. I think getting out of the house and trying something new would be good for me. I have been researching karate dojos near my home. I think taking martial arts lessons would help me get out of my slump by getting exercise, meeting new people, a...

I think the Life Expectancy for Dyspraxics is below average, given the problems dyspraxics have including mental health problems. I have suspected that for a long time. It is unlikely that it's caused by the dyspraxia itself but more by the side effects that you hint at such as stress. This is perh...
I've been playing pokemon since about 1998. Currently I am not playing the video game much (Moon) - although my team had Laurantis, Incineroar, and Mimikyu. I've been playing the card game a lot more recently.

I have a few guitars, every so often I sort of pick them up and strum a few chords. For me the hardest part is rhythm. The next hardest part is that my wrists get very sore very quickly. May be holding it super awkwardly?

Hi poodlelover81, congratulations on graduating from university! Have you thought about joining a writer's group? I have all sorts of hobbies - playing video games, making music, and practicing Japanese. I even played on the company soft ball team last summer! I'm really bad at a lot of my hobbies b...
Hi Roxy, hi Tim I'd echo what has been said. I'm a fit guy, spend 10 years as a rower and now go to crossfit which I've done for about 2 years. Hi Clumsy! I was a rower for 6 years! (3 in high school and 3 in college). I found I was good at erging but very bad at technique (probably from the dyspra...
