day 2032 – post game hyack

post game team dinner after a game we lost with minutes left in the game. the team played sound defensively, and i felt i had a solid game as a defense. first time having a penalty called against me, an interference penalty when i laid a hip check on one of the wingers. i had a lot of fun playing this game, much of it had to do with the quality of hockey instead of fending ourselves from fighters. it’s must win games from here on or our season will be over

day 1690 – squirtle bonder

bonder for squirtle squad at the fancy chop steakhouse. i went all out because i knew they were well known for steak and the prime rib i ordered was absolutely delicious. it’s one of the odd times i order medium rare and i actually get it done with a good amount of red in my meat. left with a pretty hefty bill but treating myself once in a while is not so bad. the squirtle jerseys are in and done; we’re ready for the spring season. it sounds like we have a good team and i’m really looking forward to it

day 1689 – bowlers alley

it was a shame i missed the last company bowling event, but i got in on the fun this time. competition started getting serious and there was no shortage of trash talking. i only put up a hundred and eleven points on the board; sad to say i used to be a better bowler reaching the one fifties. in the end it’s all relative to the other teams and i think my team did well overall. hopefully once the scores are tallied, my team would come out as winners. by the end of two hours, my ring finger was aching quite badly

vdl baker retreatĀ 

rumour has it that the annual vdl baker retreat is described as one of a kind. rumour was bang on as the retreat didn’t disappoint and was nothing short of crazy. the three days spent with these lovely people certainly left many unforgettable memories. lots of stories took place over the weekend, but will be left untold because whatever happens at baker stays at baker. the kardashian cabin was cozy and only made cozier with twelve people in a cabin that regularly sleeps ten. i thought i’d rather go ski at mount baker because i didn’t want so much down time, but i’m glad i didnt. there’s several first moments, like sitting in the outdoor hot tub in the rain, drinking vodka via free pour, eating filipino spaghetti, seeing mountainous plates of bacon, kicking a six foot two guy in the face and walking into a green shop even knowing i’ll absolutely dislike it. i also learned more about myself and those around me. i would never survive in the wilderness because i am incapable of starting a fire, nor would i be able to go three straight days without being connected in some form. i found that some of the biggest hearts are found within the dodgeball exec body cause no matter the situation, we all care and look out for each other like family. i found out that the darker side of people’s past as i’m glad they felt at ease letting me into their inner self. after all, elected to devote my time for eight seasons to be one of these awesome people. to sum it up, it was a weekend of an unhealthy amount of booze and food everywhere, but it was one of the best weekends i’ve had in a long while. this was one of the rare times in the past year where i laughed genuinely; let’s keep the smiles up for the rest of the year

day 1618 – apex adventures

jumping around with the marcom execs at apex adventures plex before grabbing a bite. the ninja course was my main attraction that brought out the competitiveness out of me. the bubble soccer and trampolines brought the kid out of me. had to pick and choose what i could do with caution; the last thing i need is to put my hand at unnecessary risks. this could be considered cardio, the stuff i avoid but should make an effort to do more of. the soreness keeps piling on after all the workouts,  wods and activities, but adamant to continue as planned

day 1604 – obyf party

potluck bonder for yet another obyf season, eight to be exact. bring your own drinks parties really get out of hand when everyone brings their stash and ends up with a ridiculous amount on the table. enjoyed my night chilling with this gang over food and drinks. even when out of dodgeball setting, dodgeball ends up to be a part our party; what a bunch of dodgeball addicts. we laid out how our season went and savored the winning moment

day 1600 – vdl season enderĀ 

bonding with the execs that i’ve been a part of for eight seasons and counting. it’s rare to have the full exec body together so there was a lot of mingling and eating involved. it takes a good crowd to run a dodgeball league with success. this year’s ender theme was christmasy but hardly did anyone muster anything. i for one have a very dark wardrobe so finding a pink and gray top was all i could mystery unless i go with another black dress. the menu was almost preset almost like a dineout, but i somehow had a menu of my own that was both lactose and onion-free
