musings, rantings, and what-have-you, about my own small part of the world, and my 'sometimes' not so-ordinary life...something to read and reflect on, and which hopefully will bring a smile to your face... :)

Team Marshmallow

In our kickboxing class, there are 3 girls. Mhel, Grace and myself. Our class is growing to include more guys who are into MMA (mixed martial arts) and BJJ (brazilian jiu jitsu) who are cross-enrolling, and so, we're greatly outnumbered. There are times (especially during Saturday classes) when I'm the only girl in the gym. And some smart alecks would ask, "hey, sheila, how does it feel being the only girl? Di ka nako-conscious?" Grrrr... as if i need to explain why i'm there in the first place.

Anyway, going back to us girls in the class. We've been baptized "Team Marshmallow" but don't let that "girly/sissy" name fool you. We may look soft, but we can endure as much suffering, errr... training, as the boys. As our instructor would himself say, he trains us the same way as he trains the guys. And personally, i'm okay with that. Hey, i specifically remember someone saying before, i'm just 'one of the boys'.
