day 1313 – border crossing 

it’s been a good but tiring oregon trip with long drives to and from portland. on my way home after many hours spent in the car, long day of competition and irregular and malnutritioned meals. i’m content with the results and my personal performance and hope that this will get myself back on track. this might be what i needed to reinstate my mind and body to get the grind going again. now that the competition is behind me, i must gear down and focus because march will be a crazy month

day 1052 – bellingham

image

fun times driving south of the border to shop for some closing out deals. many of the shelves were swept clean, but luckily we were still able to find some equipment that we were looking for. this day trip allowed me to back away from recent matters and just let my day naturally roll out. the drive down wasn’t too bad, but we hit friday rush hour traffic on the way back which made me really close to having a road rage outburst

day 975 – portland highways

image

driving south of the border on our way to portland hotel. started our drive so early just to beat out rush hour traffic. the border wait was minimal and the drive was smooth until we hit the affernoon traffic at downtown portland. when i see weaving stacked highways, i always think of portland and los angeles. getting to portland was half the battle, preparing myself for the big day tomorrow is the other half. sleeping earlier tonight would definitely do me good

day 714 – automated locker

image

going south of the border to pick up one of the many packages i ordered. one of the easiest border crossing i ever had, the officer let me by without really much question. what could a little asian girl do down in point roberts anyway?? it’s been a crazy stretch of online shopping and proved that spending online is way too easy. wonder why i am not able to save up at all lately, or ever

day 653 – point roberts

image

rushing off to point roberts to pick my ordered goods but bad timing to go past parallel 49 just when it’s a start to a long weekend. but i am glad i made it to friday, thought it would never come. and when i need something really bad, i make every possible arrangements to get it. good thing it wasn’t a 25 minute delay like the website said it was or else i wouldn’t make it back to richmond in time for class

day 446 – heading home

image

wrapping up my washington roadtrip with overall team success. can’t get home without paying the peace arch a little visit and of course getting through the long border wait. look forward heading farther down for the next one plus the rest on the list we are eyeing and it may be sooner than i know it. a lot of work and practice to be done if we are aiming for those bigger opens, don’t let it stop

day 226 – long wait

image

absolute worst thing about going down to the states is the border wait was so unpleasantly long and time consuming. times you want to slam the wheel when eight cars cross in the other lane while your lane hasn’t moved a single car, that’s when you know you picked the wrong lane
