day 2222 – fourth bound

after a full day at the dojo, i walked away with a fourth dan certificate. though i was satisfied with most, i was unhappy about one thing. i was bitter my x-out didn’t get the three attempts that all breakings get because he was worried i’d hurt myself. if held firmly, i was confident in breaking it. i’m still pretty proud i went for it considering the roller coaster i had been on the past few weeks. it was a good attempt and maybe the best attempt i had with boards. i’ll keep practicing and do it better one of these days for redemption. i’m just relieved this is all over. my beaten body full of gashes and bruises deserves the break after two long days at the dojo and of course all the work i’ve put into my x-out. definitely a smart decision to take tuesday as a flex day

day 1795 – seven tissues deepĀ 

crappy does it when showing up to hockey with the last of my fuel to do everything i could do and still get shat on for one thing i didn’t do. it also doesn’t help that the cherry picking linemate told me i had stopped skating. thanks but no thanks; at least i’m the one up doing forechecks and the one to rush back to finish my backchecks while you wait at the red line for that perfect pass. i got home really bitter and that one thought alone kept me up late at night. it’s one thing to have high expectations, it’s another to be shatting on me for one thing i couldn’t do without gas left in my tank. i’m beyond upset and didn’t feel the need to even react to anymore comments

day 1767 – dbag

i felt bitter as i came out from civil war to see this happen. i don’t know which douche bag would park like this and expect me to not scratch their car while loading my hockey stick. this douche is definitely asking for it since this wasn’t the only parking stall left in the lot. i really wanted to leave a note or leave a mark for the douchebag, but figured it’s late and all i wanted to do was get home to rest up for an early morning game. i hope the owner of this car doesn’t score a single goal a all season long

day 1039 – spartan sprint

today i did something i never thought i would do in my lifetime which was completing my first ever spartan sprint obstacle race. it was a grueling course that had me wondering why i had signed myself up. upon completion, i am thankful for having experienced this and grateful to be working our butts off together. i am tired and sore everywhere and i know my body will be sorry tomorrow. heading into the race with next to no training, i’m satisfied with how well i completed the obstacles, especially anything related to jumping, climbing and swinging. however, that does stop me from being bitter of the spear station that handed me burpees

day 550 – should be there

a friend sent me this gorgeous view today. i should be there with her enjoying the snow on big white this weekend, but sadly i am not. instead, screw ups and lack of communication made me drop my plans and left me stuck in vancouver doing my usual routine plus another standard instructor seminar. i am not content to let winter season pass by without having gone up the mountain for some skiing
