day 1685 – millwork sample 

in the icon building inspecting the quality of vietnam millwork. overcapacity at work since everyone wants to get things in before the christmas closure. somehow i will need to wrap up all these jobs before i go on break. there’s a first for everything and today, i sat in my first ever interview. i was very nervous being part of the interview panel because what i say could make or break the interviewee

day 1684 – new bar

i forgot to set my alarm but my body clock works well enough to wake me up at half past six so i was minimally late for work. there are days i just need to keep going and going; hopping from work on top of work. start off the week strong with lifting and be the first to use this brand new olympic bar. getting back into my routines has sure left me sore for days and i can’t wait do it all over again to be sore for days again

day 1683 – hootie

back to back season winning the spirit owl with gstrings. we uphold to being a highly spirited team in regular season and that’s no different at playoffs. an early exit wasn’t what we expected but we came out of our zone and my team knows it. the hardest part of being on the sideline while my team was on the brink of elimination is knowing i could step in to help but at the same time couldn’t. if doctors gave me the nod, i would have in a heartbeat, played in a splint and found any way to have it taped so all surrounding joints are immobilized. at some point i just realized people are right and i need to take it easy at the right moment. regardless, i still wanted to be there for my team

day 1682 – gramercy 

i never questioned whether my heart is in the right place cause i know it myself. the holiday card and notes written says it all. this reminds me of why i continue to push through my hectic life to be teaching year after year. i don’t want to give up these kids i’ve trained, some for several months and some seven years. i forget what it’s like to be appreciated for what i do and what i do well. i thought it didn’t bug me, but it actually does and i’m told i should never tolerate or take it from anyone

day 1681 – omega 

craved sushi and that’s exactly what i got tonight. it’s my ultimate go to eats that i can never get sick of. as usual, i skip the fillers and go straight for the sashimi, a party size sashimi to share. getting some quality food in me and loaded up on omega after a good session. a pricey bill came with it but fulfilling meal that leaves my tummy satiated and satisfied. also feeling pretty good that the push aspect is still there, and working up on the pull

day 1680 – grip and pinch

another vgh rehab visit, first whirlpool therapy, then some wax therapy, then physical therapy. also did some functional testing and found out some interesting info. i found out i remain deviations above the standard with most of my strength, that is anything that doesn’t require my thumb. i think hand therapist was trying to tell me there’s progress but i really was only interested in knowing one thing. she left me with plenty of homework, all of which is fifty repetitions of things to do with balls and with bands

day 1679 – ornamentation 

holiday season immediately bolstered when i came home to a decorated christmas tree and lots of lights. annual house decorations are up in keeping in line with the family tradition. keep in mind there’s less than twenty sleeps before christmas day. got to get started on the christmas gift shopping. started planning a little late this year, but december parties are beginning to roll in
