Just in case you were wondering: yes, I am still practising soroban. I am not going to the usual evening classes any longer, but nevertheless, I practise six days every week. I have been trying to pass the test for 1st kyu for more than half a year now, and there is always a little something that does not work out. However, I am not willing to give up.
The next test for 1st kyu will be on Sunday morning. Once again, I will go there and do my best, and I am feeling as prepared as I can possibly be. Let’s hope there is nothing out of the ordinary that will throw me off my track yet again… Wish me luck!
