day 2522 – catan-ing

it was important i pushed out some work today because all the scheduling needed to be set for next weekend. after hashing out the major components, i was in my backyard getting two tans going – catan and suntan. i felt bad that i was multitasking during the game early parts of the game, but it was not fun for me at the beginning. i trailed right from the get go, but somehow waited it out and caught up at fourteen points. too bad everyone gave up on the game because i feel like i could’ve pulled out the victory

day 2472 – minion celly

my little hospitality design minion invited me over to her place for my belated birthday celebration. we had our long overdue catch up chat while enjoying our steak salad and roasted veggies. after our delicious dinner, we went out for an evening stroll while the sun set behind us. the perks of living in olympic village is the seawall is literally her backyard. i’m very thankful i was out today to take my mind off things that’s causing my stress level to rise

day 2441 – patio lounging

finished the cardio training early so i could have the rest of the day. i had to sacrifice the sprint for a ten lap jog because my shin was bothering me. the run was followed by a hundred wall kicks and some bonus pushups. it was such a nice day out so i ate my lunch out on the patio lounge chair. it was the perfect excuse to lounge around, soak in some vitamin d and sun tan while watching my latest drama episode

day 2437 – bucket snatch

i was challenged to do the trending bucket snatch or clean and jerk and decided to give it a go because i’m utterly bored and feel the need to entertain myself. i filled the each bucket with about six litres of water. the hardest part was not the weight itself, but dealing with the wobbly pvc pipe. the handle of the bucket also came off as i caught it above my head. i must admit it was a pretty fun challenge. i’m sure my neighbor got a good kick out of watching me from their porch

day 2041 – woodwork

doing some wordwork in my backyard with the help of my dad while it’s sunny outside. it’s a rare occurrence to have spare time, but i made use of the moment and did a bunch of things that’s usually not a top priority. i started off the morning with power skating, did a thorough car wash and vacuum inside and out, and built some plyo boxes. i can’t wait to show them off once i have all the material to finish off the big boxes, but so far it’s turned out well

day 1496 – summer cleaning

collecting all my hockey gear that i used to take over the porch this weekend. people say their water turns murky black after soaking their gear; mine didn’t change colour so i’m not sure if i did it right. regardless, it was the small window of offseason; i now have clean gear to use in anticipation of a busy season of hockey. i find labour day weekend is all about cleaning and catch up work, as if i was getting ready to go back to school

day 202 – bubble selfie

times like this when i am not being productive fooling around in my backyard when the sun was shining momentarily. just killing time looking at myself through a bubble and trying to take a selfie. missing the sunshine a lot and really needing a tan, i hate to be so pale even though i am asian
