day 1734 – triceratops

so much driving back and forth from vancouver and richmond just because i’m part timing in dinotown. after a play where the ball grazed my thumb the wrong way, it started not feeling right. knowing it’ll never be back to normal, i thought it was at least in a borderline functional state. just as i thought my thumb was back as good as it’ll ever be, i start getting doubts. i had to lay off immediately and make sure it doesn’t get worse. if it doesn’t get better, i’ll have to wear my splint again just to play

day 1733 – double double headersĀ 


never have i played four games in one day, two double headers on the menu today. first double header is 9am softball in this rainy condition. it was so nice to have a hot shower after being soaked from the rain and mucky gravel fields. by the time i made it to the fourth and final game of the day, my brain has already shut down and my legs no longer want to function. at the end of all the games, hung out with the guys to chow down on wings. i’ll have to reconsider another four game day

day 1732 – grippy socks

sporting the new free socks won from the nash challenge. came with two high quality grippy socks that feels really comfortable for running. this comes timely since it seems i’ve lost some socks lately and need to restock some socks. played another game on second line but no other word to describe than just plain awkward seeing the ex i don’t want to see. chilling with friends after civil war was enticing, but opting to go home was probably the better option so i can wake up for the sunday morning game

day 1731 – project overload

it’s design reshuffle day and coordinated much of the move, but i was also the culprit who stalled the whole process. essentially everyone was waiting for me to move out of my workstation before they can move in, but i was adamant of replying four nasty emails. the bombardment of emails overnight came from someone who had no business in minding my projects; she’s not my manager and i need not report to her. she’s been slowly working at some leads and managed to break two. she’s turned her attention to me but has yet to find a way to unravel me. some say i’m really good with keeping my poker face and not getting to me has quite frustrated her. i felt the need to reply all four of them in a way to show she’s got nothing on me. i stand up for not only myself, but for the rest of my design team 

day 1730 – ramen fuel

chomping down ramen for fuel and fire after taekwondo do and before a night of dodgeball. there’s all the reason for my teammates to bet on me tonight, but i didn’t disappoint. i needed some dodgeball fix, not to mention i didn’t want to miss two weeks in a row. the showdown that i won today is quite the battle; one that i can stand tall with. i played relatively well tonight considering the circumstances i had to face. i just need to rectify that very little stands between me and sports. one thing to figure out how in the world i can better grip the ball; my grip will have to adapt to something else 

day 1729 – tape-less tape job


replacing new tape on top of old tape all week long. it appears i have tape on even when i don’t actually have any on. it’s been that kind of life since last week and i’m surviving off tape job after tape job until i can go into physio. as it stands, my workload is so insane there’s no way i can take time off for an appointment. this doesn’t stop me from going to dodgeball, and won’t stop me from going to taekwondo 

day 1728 – penta social

went expecting to social with other penta players, but it wasn’t what i expected. there wasn’t much mingling involved, just eating, listening and drawing prizes. the social in this league is very different than the ones i’m used to going to; maybe the demographics is very different. the food was sub-par and disappointing, but at least we walked across the street to have a scoop of earnest. i’m surprised to see so many familiar faces within penta, many of which i met playing dodgeball
