This Monday was my first time back at karate after summer, and as some of you might remember from my previous post, I haven’t been training much before that for the last year. I was so nervous I thought I was gonna be sick.

To cope with my nerves I doodled this little comic of how I get ready! Also, class went really well and I enjoyed myself so much I laughed several times.

Hope you all have great classes! <3
