day 1622 – nucks and sens 

pushing through the crowded rogers arena during intermission taking photos with my all time fave canuck. the canucks off to a good start getting points in the both games played. specifically chose to attend this all canadian matchup against senators because of burrows. although the canucks didn’t take the win, it was a good game getting our value of overtime and shootout

day 1621 – stat work

not much of a thanksgiving to celebrate since my parents are back in hong kong and my hand is in much agony. instead of spending time alone in my four walled bedroom, i opted to go to the office to get some work done. there was so much work on my plate to get done but none of my coworkers wanted to see me at the office knowing i’m in a bad state. my hand was so discoloured and swollen i couldn’t even recognize my own hand. the driving is slightly dangerous when i have to for go signaling when my off hand can’t reach

day 1620 – one for mom

celebrated mom’s birthday before parents head to the airport for yet another trip to hong kong. in front of them, i act like there’s no pain and everything is okay even though deep down it’s a completely different story. upon seeing them off, i closed the front door and tears immediately began to roll down my eyes. i couldn’t stop the down pour; the only to dull my heart break way was to lay in bed. it hurts in every way and hard to accept that my life has changed drastically. i’m tired from all this i don’t know how i will handle this change

day 1619 – shattered thumb 

a blocked shot did all the damage. took it directly off my thumb and immediately confident it was broken but kept playing since there’s no confirmation. i couldn’t put my bottom hand on the stick, but i continued onward to put one into the net. although netting the goal should not be my main focus now, it was definitely the saving grace of the game ending injury. two hospitals and four hours later, the hand specialist decided i can have a splint without surgery. i’m more disappointed of the length i’ll be out and not the pain or discomfort that comes with

day 1618 – more student

more work coming my way, taking on another student. she approached me for help and i’m a willing helper, though the obstacle is also time. i’ll have to figure out my already crammed schedule to see how i can accommodate the both of them; at least i know i’m wanted somewhere. somehow, somewhere i think i was born to teach something since i find teaching all the time

day 1617 – ice knee


bounced off the floor hard when i dropped too quickly to the floor. my chiro was on site but there was nothing he could have done for me there. there’s no taking it easy and i hate sitting out.  the damage is already done so i might as well continue playing through it; finished the night and immediately slapped an ice pack on it to stop the swelling. despite bruising up bad, it’s always a fun night playing with the girls. i am a little doubtful to be healthy for saturday night’s rivalry

day 1616 – double yolk


mom cooked lots of food for dinner and bought mooncake for dessert to celebrate mid autumn festival with the family. it gets harder and harder to have a family dinner because my schedule is just so packed. i’m glad they understand that i am working hard and grinding every single day. they know i’m hardworking to establish a better future but they’re always concerned i don’t eat. i’ll just make the most of the special dinners we get together. i guess i can allow myself to have this once in a while. i hate being called fat, but maybe i’ll just have to accept it’s the truth and that i’m getting fat
