So the title is a little misleading. I didn't fail my purple belt test. I failed to ARRIVE at my purple belt test. There was some mis-communication as to when Jacare wanted us there for the test. He had to leave at 2:30, and we thought we were supposed to get there at 2. Had everything gone perfectly this might still have worked out, but I hit some kind of interdimensional time sink trying to get on 285 in Atlanta and spent an hour and fifteen minutes travelling four miles. So of course Jacare was long gone by the time I got there.
My next opportunity will be probably be in August, and I plan on going up for the full Saturday class just to make sure I get there in time.
