day 1583 – daniel thousandth

daniel sedin joining his brother and making the canuck millenium point list. pretty sure this is henrik but either way they look the same any way. an honor to have met one of them in person and watched him make one thousand happen all in a canucks jersey. a great accomplishment and a treat to have watched seventeen years of sedinery. i watched the twins being drafted into nhl as raw hockey players, to leading the team to stanley cup finals

day 1582 – kurios 

cirque du soleil once again proves it’s entertainment at its best. a little under the weather but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to good seats for kurios. it was a display of amazing acrobatic skills that took me through time warp and challenged my perceptions. this would be one of the better cirque shows i’ve seen so far. kooza, zarkana, totem, ka, toruk, and now kurios, i have never been disappointed walking out of their shows. each time i witness something different that is mind blowing

day 1581 – outfit of the day

img_20200203_1452257240786511345466629.jpgperhaps wearing my new oxford look-alike today gave me a special bounce in my step. today marks one year, how time flies and how things have changed since my start at hd. i’m grateful for how things have shaped up and how much i’ve grown and improved. i’ve doubted myself in so many ways and lost myself far too many times, but i somehow i carried forward even at the toughest crossroad. i look forward to all the opportunities that lie ahead knowing i’m paving my own path

day 1580 – massage

a stop at the massage therapist after trucking along the many nonstop days and nights. there isn’t really a good time or spare time to release the built up stress from my driven lifestyle. when i look at it again, tasks will forever be never-ending because one task’s end is another task’s beginning. i can’t let myself break down, then i’ll only be less fulfilled. from the looks of the swelling, still makes me worried something has gone awry and think it’s best to make time to get it checked

 

day 1579 – sunday workday

it started off having a laid back sunday morning before getting into work. good that i don’t have a 7:30am start on sunday as well so i could sleep in a little after a late night of partying. had no urgency to sleep after a night like this, but once in a while is okay. worked another blackbelt test and the rest of my time spent completing a bunch of modules. banking these extra hours hopefully to pay off and gets accredited for in the future

day 1578 – wild wild west 

the atmosphere and theme at this pubnight was way better than last week’s. the food was at boston pizza was mediocre at most serving only pizza and fries, neither made me feel good after eating. the photobooth was a hit as it should be. although i was running around most of the night, i had a much better time running into and mingling with many. i got a chance to catch up with some old mates, talking and laughing at some of the old times. it’s great to see so many familiar faces at events like this

day 1577 – gambler

what a coincidence to be walking around the autowest showroom during black friday. must be a joke trying to sell this limited edition gunmental matte grey sniper on a black friday. it definitely got my full attention and drooling as a made a few circles. i took a big gamble today that i probably shouldn’t have. i’ll have to keep a close tab on it and hope that i’ll find signs that it’s just a false alarm. chances are i’ll have to make a pit stop at hand surgeon clinic if that isn’t falsified

day 1576 – pre black friday 

getting in early on the pre black friday sale which is pretty high on my shopping list. the first of many items i bought is a pillow that’s big enough i can comfortably with miumiu. a pillow i should have bought long ago that will serve me better and rid some of my sleeping woes and neck pain. i can’t wait until the rest of my stuff comes in to complete my makeover

day 1575 – long talks

being filled in the world of politics over some sushi to get the latest news. i have a better picture of what’s going on the the political world but that doesn’t change the position i’m in. after this talk, it reassures me the approach i’ve been taking is the correct one. it helps to know these things; i take these advice with a grain of salt and will give it some careful thoughts in the next little while

day 1574 – surgeon visit 

img_20200203_1446209065037156033478985.jpgfifth time into the clinic and fifth set of xrays, the radiologist has gotten to know me too well. hand specialist handed me some good news today that gave me a reason to smile and it wasn’t that my bone has grown back together cause the xrays are still ugly. in fact, he reiterates my bone will never be straight again, it will never appear as one piece, it may always have clicking inside, but he intends on making my thumb work again. my splint is trimmed down a little and i’m given the go ahead on certain things. it just means i now have less restrictions as to how often i need to wear it. the road is a little more clear now
