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 2478 – carcassonne

finishing the week off strong with two good back to back lifting sessions today. unlike last friday’s apex session where i missed more than half my lifts, i had all makes today using the green plates. got home and did a second lift with my flightclub fam. hitting the four big lifts and then some accessories. i was able to attempt sprints on the last two laps which feels like a win for me and my healing knee. chilled on my computer with friends for the rest of the afternoon learning how to play a new board game

day 2473 – mother’s day meal

normally my brother and i would take the family out for a mother’s day dinner, this year was slightly compromised. this is the quarantine mother’s day edition where we were only able to order takeout. eating a decent meal together and playing having some quality time together playing board games is the least i could do for all the things she’s ever done for us. she’s the reason why i am me today. i hope one day i can make her proud and be the daughter she hoped for

day 2361 – board games night

took what was basically a road trip out to get to an hd board games afternoon. it was a forty five minutes drive out to white rock from my house. we played many games of telestration before switching onto sushi go party. i wasn’t expecting to play past 8pm so i had to skip my originally planned open gym. i was okay with it because time flew by as we were having too much fun

day 2349 – sushi go party

picked up my first game from the christmas shopping tonight but still waiting on cranium. a number of friends group have been on a board games tear recently. i’m ready to whip out my sushi go party in the next board game night this month. i also want to teach my parents how to play this game because i think they’ll enjoy it. i’ll gradually add a few more to my board games collection

day 2347 – exposure bubbles

six days into the new year is earlier than i’d like to break the bubble tea streak. since i was having the first of the year, i might as well go for their top pick – exposure supreme milk tea. it was premium milk tea loaded with pearls and pudding. at least i can justify it by having burned some calories prior to the enjoyment. hopefully i’ll last much longer without breaking the fast food streak

day 2345 – hockey rust

making my first squirtle appearance since the many damages that started in october. the rust on the ice was real and it didn’t help that we’ve been tiered up. the score was very lopsided even though my team got many shots of goal. my line had plenty of good chances, but couldn’t bury any. after gearing off, i rushed back to flightclub for board games night. i didn’t stay until the end, but even then it was already past 2am and i’ve been up for close to twenty one hours

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
