day 2038 – design brunch

we’re overdue for a group activity so we’re treated to a design brunch at comina. we took advantage of the nice day out and walked around steveston area and fisherman’s wharf before heading back to work. some bought plants, a few grabbed mini donuts, and many grabbed coffee during our ‘free’ time. sometimes a breath of fresh air relieves some stress and pulls us out of a things we shouldn’t be caught up with

day 2037 – pink shirt day

wearing pink pants to the office to support anti-bullying day. this is one of the few times i will voluntarily wear something so bright because it’s a movement closer to my heart. i’ve been bullied in parts of my childhood because i was small and timid. as a result, i would not look like i can defend or stand up for myself. i guess that explains why i keep things inside my heart and my mind, and that’s developed a shell designed to protect my myself from danger

day 2036 – physio visit

my ankle was obviously not in good working form so getting it checked up because i can’t afford to have any time off. the faster i fix it, the faster i’m on the roundoff back tucks again. the reason i love my physio is he’s good at what he does – fixing my injuries since highschool. he knows me so well that every time i visit, he would work his magic on my many failing body parts and get me back to my sports in a jiffy. this was time no different. it’s amazing how much better my ankle felt after he did some adjustments

day 2035 – coaching duties

i went to flipping after work because i have nothing better to do before poomsae training. coaching was a must even on a bad ankle when i could barely walk when untaped. no question i work tirelessly for my students and just want them to improve and be all that they can. though i enjoy teaching and helping the students, these long days are very taxing both physically and mentally. i basically worked seventy thirty to nine with a two hour break. i ended up eating dinner at almost 10pm and was beyond starvation at that point

day 2034 – delta floor

i shouldn’t be here but i am. joing the flightclub crew for an open gym session at delta gymnastic facilities. it doesn’t seem like too much has changed to the gym since i was last here years ago. i really shouldn’t be doing anything on my feet the day after jamming my ankle attempting roundhouse back tucks on the floor. the purpose of this session is defeated because of that, but i showed up as promised. the falls i had sure dampened the mood, but doesn’t change the fact that the move i’ve been urning for is within reach. i will have to heal up and go hard at it again

day 2033 – lumber

cut some lumber with my dad to get ready for my next do it yourself project. my dad has the basic tools but not a woodworking workshop at home. it made cutting wood slightly more tedious and difficult, but still got the job done nonetheless. i still need to gather more material and go through this same process again. i’m hope this will all turn out as well as i drew it up on sketchup and cad

day 2032 – post game hyack

post game team dinner after a game we lost with minutes left in the game. the team played sound defensively, and i felt i had a solid game as a defense. first time having a penalty called against me, an interference penalty when i laid a hip check on one of the wingers. i had a lot of fun playing this game, much of it had to do with the quality of hockey instead of fending ourselves from fighters. it’s must win games from here on or our season will be over
