day 212 – life lessons

image

i take my wallpapers seriously because i stare at it every single day. what was once on my desktop wallpaper has strong and important reminders written on how to carry myself no matter what life throws at me. this is one of those times i need to remind myself not to lose what i love and continue to love with no regrets. need to take a moment just to do some reflections of the past, present and future

day 211 – blended

image

blended myself a healthy blueberry smoothie in a starbucks cup to go along with working on my stuff and making my deadlines. so much left undone, looks like tonight is going to be a late night. just leave me alone and let me be. i am most productive at night since i can’t seem to get anything done early on

day 210 – dodging once again

image

my life is decent and back to normal as long as i can have my dosage of tkd, gym, dodgeball and all that’s within my passion, today was one of those days.  feeling awesome being back on the court playing like the only way i know, only this time sporting a heavy duty ankle brace and being cautious i still have my duties this weekend

day 209 – an attempt to be productive

image

at waves working away trying to get many things done and catch up with my many works, most of which are due this week but i have delayed it until the very end. why does situation look so familiar, it is like a sin to finish things in advance because that’s not how i roll. sometimes i find procrastination brings the best out of me, aside from the stress

day 208 – tape job

image

that’s more than half a roll of tape used in one go. this is the amount of tape required to tape my ankle and knee to provide stabilization and continue to train for this weekend. no time to sit, rest, wait or waste time because the competition is only days away and i still feel super unprepared

up at 4am watching team canada defend it’s title and win the last gold medal of sochi 2014. great to see sweden take silver and finland take bronze, leaving america’s hockey team medal-less. canada was well represented at this year’s olympic games and a good finish to the olympics

day 206 – snowy days

wake up to a vancouver of snow covered streets and rooftops. glad that there’s finally fresh new snow on the mountains. a few days of sunshine just as you think spring is almost here, coupled with a few days of snow. that’s not unusual and that’s kind of sums up vancouver’s weather pattern

day 205 – sugar crush

image

feeling accomplished today and now can rest easy because it’s finally my turn to be at the top of the candy crush scoreboard, and the lead is by a mile. its makes me proud and gives me bragging power, don’t judge just cause you can’t top it. but even if you judge, doesn’t change anything

day 204 – special moments

image

in midst of the hype at canada open and us open back to back weeks, here’s a throwback to our first experience of national stage at the canadian nationals 2013. a journey filled with hard work, setbacks, injuries, sweat, hate but most importantly the memories, love and team bonding time we shared. an experience so fulfilling we are set on training towards representing the pride of team bc one more time

day 203 – power cleaning

judging by the filthy exterior of the car, it was long overdue for some power cleaning. been meaning to do it for a while but kept postponing cause of cold weather and physical circumstances. consider this the semi annual car wash, lets hope i’ll stop putting it off and the next car wash isn’t another six months from now. those dirty rims are not attractive at all
