day 2178 – flightclub birthday

a night at the facilities to celebrate flightclub coachs birthday. in the short span i’ve spent tricking, i’ve met a lot of new people within the community. i arrived late to the party due to another long teaching shift. we spent the night playing board games, karaoke, eating, chatting and of course flipping. there was no shortage of food and cake from the potluck. i stayed past midnight but not until the very end since i need to be up early for walk with the dragon the next morning

day 2115 – housewarmers

a house warmer that started off normal with takeout chinese food for dinner, usual cup games, and board games; my team lost in flip cup but we were undefeated champs in beer pong. as everyone started getting tipsy, the party shifted to pullup challenges and arm wrestling matches. i’m surprised i faired well taking some by surprise and putting up a fight for ones i didn’t think i’d stand a chance. i can be confident in my right, but the same cannot be said for my left arm because of what my thumb had to go through

day 2087 – sechelt home

the squirtle squad has arrived at sechelt, the place we’ll call home for the next three days. the twelve of us have this beautiful place all to ourselves thanks to a hookup. we only have enough beds for half of us, but i think sleeping arrangement will be the least of our worries. i’ve never been to sechelt despite it only being a forty minute ferry ride away. consider this a season end team bonder on top of our championship celebration. the weekend ahead will be full of eating, drinking, gaming and a lot of laziness. we brought so much food and alcohol in anticipation of a weekend of hotpot and barbecue

day 1557 – karaoke party

the start of saturday morning shifts has begun so i’ll be working nine straight hours on saturdays between two jobs. i wonder how long i will last with sixty four hour work weeks before i burn out. i was tired after the two shifts but doesn’t change my plans for an impromptu karaoke and board games night. i had a good night chilling with peeps. it was the fun i used to have; the good company kept from thinking why i’m still feeling solo all the time. it’s not a good feeling to always never have the support of the closest ones. i miss the times when i could be out way past midnight and actually have a night life

day 1388 – obyf social

another casual but always entertaining obyf end of season party. play as a team on the court, every one for themselves when playing exploding kittens. before we know it, the eight of us have been together for eight seasons going on nine. it’s amazing how obyf has developed into an iconic wednesday team. playing with this bunch has been so rewarding because we’ve never had a bad season no matter where the standings put us. we’ll be taking another run for another title

day 1306 – exec socialĀ 

a vdl event that gathers execs so those who don’t do league ops nor play every night gets a chance to hangout. i am usually unable to make it out to these events, but i had a gap before working at blackbelt test. taking over most of steamworks eating and socializing while getting good laughs playing board games. the company was good but the food was horrible; i ended up eating my first hotdog since korean festival two summers ago. a laid back afternoon that momentarily got my mind off taekwondo where i was low key stressing out for my competition

day 1241 – christmas underconstruction

once again doing our annual underconstruction crew christmas party with secret santa gift exchange. it’s not a complete crew until we get chu back and hopefully that happens next year. it’s never a dull moment with playing board games while listening to carols. i wasn’t keen on the penalties chosen but never want to be the party pooper. an awesome evening updating each other, chilling. the friendly fire and competition heated up once the games started, especially exploding kittens
