Explorations on Danish soil and the joys of swordplay

Gods, it's nice to be home again. I hade a long and splendidly fun and cozy vacation, mind you, but it feels so overwhelmingly good to be at my own place, alone (save for the cat), again. I can feel the sanity coming back to me.

Today has been a good, if busy day. Started out with skipping a seminar in favour of going to explore the city of Copenhagen together with a friend. It was really nice; we had lots of fun and the weather was terrific. Between minus five and minus ten degrees, snow covering the ground, and the sun shining down from a clear sky. Combine that with good company and interesting places and you get a happy me.

Also, tonight I after much mental struggling managed to overcome the social phobias and the angst that my brain insists on throwing upon me at inconvenient times, and went longsword fencing! Gods, how I've missed using my sword. It's been a long time since I've practised martial arts on a regular basis, but I still have a lot of it programmed into my muscles and the back of my head, I realised. I'm so looking forward to going there again next week. As long as I manage not to freak out until then I will go back, and stay, for sure. I do so hope that I will make it, I have missed it so terribly much. Bloody stupid angst and phobias! Get the hell out of my head, please.

Oh happy day!
