day 1572 – playoff pump

was super pumped for my playoff game and ready to play hard as i took my freshly retaped stick and sharpened skates to the rink. i played the strongest game i possibly could and had the firepower from the very beginning with a goal and an assist to show for. i skated on the top line, earned myself powerplay time and also awarded player of the game. even though the loss tonight ended the chick’s season, there’s still tons to take away from this season. i have taken great strides this past season and it’s really an accomplishment when the guys in the locker room nominated me as most improved player. better yet, even guys i play against are acknowledging my the progress i’ve shown

day 1571 – pitch and play

after a full day of round robin, back on the diamond pumped for softball playoffs. no one expected us to last long in the playoffs, but we made a case for ourselves making it deep into the playoffs. playing five games in nine hours one break in between was tiring, but i played some of my best games as the day wore on and so did my teammates. we played our way up to semi finals and potentially could have been finalists. props to everyone who came out to play. win or lose, i’m proud of the team for finishing the season strong after such a fun season. that tan just got a whole lot darker after being on the field all day

day 1570 – riverway round robin 


rounds robin day for softball at the nicely groomed fields of riverway sports complex. going to be camping out in these eight diamonds for the next two days to finish up slopitch summer season. it’s an activity filled saturday full of slopitch, teaching and then hockey. i’m very disappointed that drop in did not happen as i was looking to play a serious game two of playoffs. no one would suspect there’s a mix up of rink bookings after playing at the same time slot since may

day 1569 – quartz top

new quartz counter top and sink unit to show for as my parents continues to make changes and upgrades to the house. i wonder how much money my parents dished out to revamp the house this summer. the new layout is looking pretty rad but they don’t seem like they’re going to stop there since they mentioned about ordering new cabinet door fronts and new dining table top. there’s also talks about re-doing some of the living quarters on the top floor

day 1568 – buckle down

it’s inexcusable that so many times i lose my self discipline and stray off from what i need to be doing. there’s been a lot of pressure from different sources of life and i’m struggling trying to stand my ground. i didn’t sign up for this, maybe i was meant to be alone in the dark, forever. i’m so stressed out; it’s been disappointing the stress has so much impact on my willpower and the lack of it. there is no excuse to not have a better habit and stick with what i want

day 1567 – new salary

received my first pay stub with my new remuneration; means a lot to me to finally have my hardwork reflected in my salary. though that’s the only bright spot of the day as i woke up feeling really shitty about myself. a stomachache made matters worse and i didn’t feel like eating. i regret having dragged myself into the office but had so much work that missing any time wasn’t feasible. just as i thought my evening was getting better, a phone call from sifu changed everything and i all i could do was lay in bed feeling majorly overwhelmed but no one there to receive

day 1566 – nomadic tempest


camping under the cambie bridge with my beach chair for the free nomadic tempest outdoor show.  it was more cultural and less acrobatic than advertised but it’s still neat to have checked it out. i like checking out the various summer events vancity has to offer; it gives me a reason to be outdoors and away from the things i routinely go through day after day. i’ll be back for more summer events around the city, especially the free ones
