vdl baker retreat 

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 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 480 – what happened??

image

waking up next morning to find photos on our phones of all the weird things we actually did and awkward messages we sent. all evidence shows that we must have had the time of our lives. all i remembered was we enjoyed ourselves last night with a little act of violence and some of us went to the washroom too many times. the last thing i recalled was playing drunken twister and falling to the ground my head getting sat on. it’s one of those times you wished social media wasn’t so accessible. not sure at which point i fell asleep but we woke up in the morning seeing the chaos and feeling like zombies, but nothing will stop us from going for some recovery dimsum

day 479 – round two

and so round two begins this time with a bigger crowd, more drinks, more food, with the same idea but a change of location. there’s so much on the table and so much at stake, i can foresee it will be an epic night that will go well beyond and into dawn. i don’t ever recall having this many drinking stints in a row, but i know my liver will not thank me for what i am about to consume tonight

day 467 – house party

glimpse of what i remember from last night before i lost all recollection of events that took place after. there was a large lineup of booze that had us gaming and drinking well into the morning and only passed out after the sun rose. it was a good night and good bonding time before we started losing ourselves. an epic night full of crazy things and lots of uncalled for events that we probably will never know about. waking up next day could hold many surprises, good and bad. haven’t drank so much in a night for quite a long time, i have not become an alcoholic. couldn’t have asked for a better time, taking advantage of the personal space and house all to myself while family is away
