day 2006 – scrim gone wrong

clearly someone taking scrimmage a little too seriously. the aftermath of a collision during powerskating scrimmage because a try-hard hit me not once, but twice. i took no exception to his second offense and decided to go straight for the bodycheck to knock him on his ass. i’m not sure what he’s trying to prove standing up against someone half his size, but its not welcome here. if i could, i would have knocked him over again because once just wasn’t enough to satisfied the rage inside

day 1685 – board cuts

the aftermath of a blackbelt test i didn’t want to work. it didn’t bode well from the beginning and only got worse when i’m told by the grandmaster to hold a board when he knows very well my hand isn’t healed for it. it really has become a hostile environment i’m tired of bearing his unreasonable and unethical ways. it has caused me too much grief and too much sleep and i’m no longer willing to go the distance to suit his needs while i sacrifice my happiness. either his attitude has to change and respect has to be there, or that’s the end of an era

day 1275 – library maintenance 

this is what cleaning house looks like with our library samples. hired temps to get this stuff done once and for all; if it was left up to the design department, we would never get around to it. all old and unwanted carpet sample must go and up for grab before it gets donated. it was first come first serve basis and within fifteen minutes it looked like the aftermath of a war

day 1127 – post rolling

image

wrapping up august with a satisfying workout and some intense rolling. the month has flown by so fast and today’s weather tells me summer season won’t last. reflecting on the month, i have made plenty of progress both physically and mentally, and in turn grown as a person. i have a lot to be thankful for, those who didn’t give up on me. i found that if i put my mind to something, i surprise myself and don’t always lose to my own expectations. the self realizations doesn’t end here, it’s only the beginning. stay tuned for the months to come on my journey to finding myself

day 604 – bashed legs

image

my legs are bashed with countless bruises from everything as of late. i didn’t even realize how much damage was caused and what i did that may have caused it but it may or may not be a harmful thing. i guess its just another sign my pain receptors no longer feel its something that requires my attention. it’s probably preferable my legs don’t take any additional beating until the current ones subsides. i think my physio’s going to have a thing or two to say when he sees this

day 468 – slow day

image

waking up and expecting to see chaos like the aftermath of a battlefield. a slow day with comfort food to recover after an eventful day. did some clean up to make sure my house was presentable before my brother returns home. decided to take a rare nap that was intended to be half an hour but became two and a half hours since i completely didn’t hear my alarm and ended up missing my evening meeting

day 370 – sunburnt

image

third time in my entire life have i gotten sunburnt instead of sun tanned. after a full day out in the sun at tennis, barbecue and sports day, my arms are red, burnt and bruised. this is what i get for being lazy and neglecting to put on sunscreen, although i am sure my sunscreen is long past its expiration date. i was also assuming that me being asian and the asian blood in me would already decrease my chances of sunburns
