Exactly! Personally, I think it would be a great help, and now I've thought on it more, I'd buy it. Just as long as you include your sources and how you came to your conclusions on certain things, it's good.
Trike as a pedal- foot- powered bike, or trike as a motorcycle?
Hmm... I rode the human powered trike a month ago. Nice! I'd take that over the average 2- wheeled bike. Of course, if you mean motorcylce with 3- wheels, I'd take a motorcycle any day!
Turkey or ham?
Like it has been said before. I'd stick with TKD. However, you have a lot of options... You (or someone else for the holidays) can invest in free weights, and build on from there. You're in college- chances are they have their own gym. If it isn't free, it's discounted, and also- you...

I haven't had to go to the doc's for ma- related injuries, but have had problems with feet, and also had to explain a slightly lower blood pressure (but not dangerous). I've either stated before the exam that I'm in martial arts, or just as I got a slightly puzzled look from them.
With me being a goofball on occasion? Yes!! Once at work, I was on a small step stool and started to topple over. Ended up doing a very nice back break fall, and not even slightly sore. Last night, I was goofing around where I was stretching my back as I was laying across something...
I did this form in TKD, and found the balance after I land to be a bit hard. I just started kind of easing my way down slow at first, until I got the feel, and then pretty soon I didn't have a problem in the landing.
Sometimes it varies from a good chunk of class being conditioning, to just the usual warm ups- sit ups, jumping jacks, push ups, and 3 laps. I'd definitely keep the conditioning in the class, even if you vary the regimine some.
