day 1325 Рpunctured 

i looked down at my foot because i felt some pain, only to see red. i spent two hours hiding in the washroom trying to stop the bleeding because i didn’t want my parents to know. as i want for the bleeding to stop, doctor friends told me to go emergency room plus get my tetanus shot done soon. my mom later told me i had left a trail of bloodied footprints from the kitchen and up the stairs to my room. so i still need to play queen’s tomorrow and hoping that an insurmountable of gauze will cushion the wound and let me play

day 1300 – less sensation

it was a bad ending to a monday night aggravating my hip at dodgeball shortly after having pulled it at taekwondo. i went home the whole way not having sensation in my right leg from my hip down; not a feeling i’ve ever felt. my night has been rounds of ice, heat and patch repeat. i can’t get my mind off two things: what happens with my competition and can i play my games this week. i’m doing lots to make it go away

day 653 – point roberts

image

rushing off to point roberts to pick my ordered goods but bad timing to go past parallel 49 just when it’s a start to a long weekend. but i am glad i made it to friday, thought it would never come. and when i need something really bad, i make every possible arrangements to get it. good thing it wasn’t a 25 minute delay like the website said it was or else i wouldn’t make it back to richmond in time for class

day 196 – reacquainted

i do not miss these at all, but i have no choice in my current stage. such an intense game of dodgeball i don’t even remember what exactly happened. somehow i threw, jumped, dodged, hit the wall and landed terribly wrong on my ankle and before i know it, i was carried off the court and my night was over. yet another untimely injury

day 90 – me, myself and i

image

since i have lost my voice completely, i will be in a quiet world of my own. seeing my family doctor didn’t help at all, she said i should not talk for next three to four days, not even whisper. made teaching a challenge not to mention teaching a group of students a¬†new technique an entirely unique experience

day 89 – feel like crap

image

when the bad comes, it seems to come all at once. on top of compensating for my ailing knee, i am now mute and sick, all occurred and fallen apart in consecutive days. drinking some nasty benylin, calling it a night and hoping things will feel a lot better when i open my eyes tomorrow morning

day 87 – knee crapped out

image

of all days, my knee just had to crap out a week before my master cup competition. swollen and dislodged out of place and my only concern is if it will allow me to participate because there’s very little that’s going to prevent me from doing it. when it comes to timing, i think i am pretty bad at it
