day 1887 – envisioning

maybe it’s not a bad idea to take up presale condo shopping as a new hobby. making myself comfortable and envisioning my soon to be new home. i’ve been eyeing multiple developments and wanting to invest in one for quite some time, but i have some more saving to do before i can hold down a unit. definitely made some progress over the last little while, but better sit down and strategize how it can be sped up to make my dream become a reality

day 1886 – sophistication

i’ve joined the club of sophistication now that i’ve successfully bought some special matcha tea and become a member of david’s tea. becoming a matcha addict is quite the unique taste because matcha powder is so pricey and so hard to find. hopefully i can brew the perfect cup of matcha latte with proper frothing machine. if this goes well, i’ll be back for more

day 1885 – ultrasound

a very delayed ultrasound for the shoulder that’s not healing nicely. something must be wrong with it if in two months i’ve made no progress. as told by my chiropractor and kinesiologist, the chance of my tendon being torn is very high. based on my knowledge plus reading up on symptoms, my initial instinct from day one was correct when i said something was damaged. now the investigation is on to find out what’s the severity and what’s the recover

day 1884 – bed base revisions

finally a sample was made on what must be the fifth revision. i’ve had it with the millennial bed base revisions and no longer care how everyone wants the design to be. they keep changing my initial design and every time someone has something to say. i personally don’t like the recessed kick, but i’m not going to add my input. i just want this done with so i can turn my attention to next year’s collection.

day 1883 – terrarium building

monthly culture event got the office together doing terrarium building workshop. the strategy going into this was only to fill my fishbowl. in the end, i walked away with a plant, some moss, shells, sand and a mini cat inside a fishbowl. it turned out quite nice so worthy of keeping it at my workstation. it was a really fun and engaging activity despite its simplicity. i guess now the harder part is figuring out how to keep the plant alive not knowing if i need to water it and how often

day 1882 – blurried

my goal got a little blurried last two days so needed a reminder for myself. i’m not happy with how i went off track the last two days. all i know is it’s time to pull myself back into it. i need to find ways to hold myself accountable for the things i set out to do. recognizing i faltered and knowing i’m the only one who can fix the problem and move onwards to get it right again

day 1881 – detention club

stayed after class for another two hours until they decided to lock up the garage doors. i worked at front tucks during the extra time, something i never enjoyed working on. i made progress and started to get the hang of it just by going through the motions. i sense my front tuck might be getting close and the extra time and hard work will pay off soon. the gang wanted to go grab a bite afterwards. i haven’t hung out with them outside before. i couldn’t turn it down; i guess i will have to use up my weekly cheat meal quota for this

day 1880 – test drives

did some expensive window shopping this afternoon browsing around the audi showroom. though i didn’t get a chance to test drive the r8, i did get the opportunity to sit inside and imagine the thrill. i then took a a4 out for a short spin and that’s more along the line of what i can afford. looking at new cars made me realize that shadow is already nine years old and getting up there in age. as much as i want to get a new car, the timing may not be right yet

day 1879 – teaching shifts

two teaching shifts after lots of jamming isn’t ideal. not the best day of teaching at taekwondo having to deal with a number of difficult students. the first hour had a handful of uncooperative students while managing a class of thirty two very beginner class. one kid wouldn’t follow instructions, one wouldn’t stop complaining, and one wouldn’t move and kept crying. i couldn’t attend to at the same time, but i did the best i could out of the gongshow situation. survived the day on two peanut butter toasts and a sore throat

day 1878 – karaoke night

team outing to millenium after playing our usual friday night hockey. it was a hard fought loss while being short on girls; we survived with three girls in the rotation. i was having so much fun at karaoke but had to leave early for work next day’s work. sang a bunch of retro jay chou, beyond, hacken, 98 degrees, backstreet boys and nsync certainly brings back a lot of good old memories. my throat was pretty dry by the end of the night, but it was an awesome night
