Twelve days to go.
Tezcatlipoca is the patron god of warriors and princes; god of the cold represented by the nocturnal sky. He is a providential god who has the gift of ubiquity. His main attribute is a smoking mirror; his costume is a tiger skin and his emblem the obsidian blade, which represents the cold, black, biting winds of the north.
And I am gonna pray to him today. I still feel weak and cough sometimes. Woke up at 5 am anxious and nervous, thinking about the exam.
I worried that my training partner and I won't work together very well. I'm worried that my nerves will betray me. I'm worried I won't be fit enough. Not a good spirit today. Went to my morning running and t'ai chi in the park. Felt good after that. I won't train three hours tonight.
In the meantime I'll try to concentrate in my big lino and hopefully I will finish it today.
