Underground

Fun Friday - MK Episode 9

Today is more of a "play-all-you-want" day. Nothing's really set in stone except for the fact that many students (myself included) are recovering from finals burnout. Even if you're years away from the game or recovering from some kind of craziness, here's to all of those getting through it.

Cheers!

Fun Friday - Mahou Kunoichi Episode 8

Hello Magicians,
It's reached that time again - finals. By the time I get to the next show, it'll be over so expect some more relaxed programming.
If you're getting through those books, these songs will pep you up for summer. If you're graduating or you've graduated already, congratulations. Let's celebrate together. If you've been out in the world for a while, take some time to enjoy yourself. You've earned it.
I had fun doing this and I'm excited to continue this summer. Keep tuning in and I'll see you next time! :)

"Training" Thursday - Yoga Routine

Hello Magicians!
So I promised that I'd post my routines on Wednesdays. Thanks to my mismanagement of exam week (combined with writing burnout), I'm doing it today. Sorry for the delay!

As I've said in my last post, I've switched my training from Zhan Zhuang to "warrior mind training" until classes are over. Simple mindfulness exercises and nighttime yoga are all of the things I can handle at the moment since I'm super exhausted. Next week, I may experiment with more intense routines.

Training Reset Button

Hello Magicians,

As you probably know, Mahou Kunoichi started off as a site to reflect on my martial arts training as well as connections to modern pop culture and personal interests. However, upon closer examination of my recent content, I've realized that the martial arts section of the site has minimized and I do feel some shame about that since it was originally the main theme of the site.

But that doesn't mean I'm giving up on it! On the contrary - I'm revising and rethinking my training from here.

I haven't been able to afford proper martial arts training for a long time and - as I'm doing an exchange program at the moment - I'm not able to get involved in the university's sports (and even if I could, commuting...). So rather than doing the warrior's art, I'm first going to train to have the mind and body of one via yoga and mindfulness.

So far that routine's doing wonders for me and I've been able to withstand the stress of the final weeks of work. The majority of the site's content will still be pop-culture related but on Wednesdays, I'll describe my observations and programs I've tried out.

I also put content on Mondays and Fridays so keep a lookout!

Thank you for being so patient with me. See you next post!

I'm having so much fun in the studio every Friday morning. This show gives me every reason to wake up in the morning. I know eventually I'll have to do an independent platform but I'm enjoying every minute of what I have now. I hope you enjoy it too, my fellow Magicians. :)

To next week and more themes. 'Til next time!
