day 2525 – statutory lift

rarely do i have anything special on canada day. this year it’s even more boring than any other because of covid and the rainy weather. the highlight of my day was going into apex for a lift. i’m really happy to be trying snatches again and even happier that everything felt manageable. my knee does hurt when i stomp too hard or at lockout, but didn’t hinder me from getting into catching position. june was a really rough month for all things including injuries, lifting, tricking, family and people. i hope to put june behind me and start off july on the right foot

day 2341 – multi screen

this is my holiday season, the break i’m entitled to just be a sloth. however, there are some unfinished business at work that needs to be done. ever since i came across this edition of prince of tennis, i have been crazily addicted. i’m binging this series day and night, and staying up until 3am hoping to finish it before my holidays are over. meanwhile, though my work is visibly there on the other screen, i’m doing nothing to it

2093 – bored

the journey has been quite rough the last little while, mainly referring to the work aspect. sometimes i just feel so unfulfilled at work these days because the waiting game continues. my kits collection rendering is delayed because the sketchup vray license is having issues. as a result, i’m killing time just doing floor plan conversions until the korean brothers can get it working again. i’m just trying to get through the week in one piece

day 2071 – 3d prints

work lately has been a total drag, i don’t look forward to going into the office at all. many mornings i hear the sound of my alarm and have no urgency to get up for work. i think the change in my scope of work and responsibility no longer makes me interested and satisfied. helping test out the 3d printer today was a way to pull me out of the boring tasks i’m currently working on

day 1758 – cad conversions

img_20200130_2158243154786680661968357.jpgit’s quite the feeling holding onto these sets of drawings knowing i’m over sixty percent through. cad conversion is almost a project on its own that i started managing last year. it’s tedious and mundane work but it must be done for the greater good. i’ve utilized much manpower to get to this point – one full time, one part time and two intern students. hoping that my new summer intern can get what’s left done and we can put this project behind us once and for all

day 1516 – level b certified 

nine hours of my sunday spent at st john’s to take my recertification course and now i’m back to saving lives. good old timmy’s to help me get through and stay awake through the boring stuff, just like those university days. the test at the end of the course was easy peasy. i have a feeling there’s more to come in order to complete my nccp, but hopefully the next one won’t be nine hours long

day 1152 – paperwork

img_20200130_2245387066162134431817214.jpgso much papers handed in to me today and paperwork to be done for my killarney classes. i am not made for this tedious stuff and certainly under appreciated for the amount of time it takes to manage all these administrative tasks. it really bores me to look at this pile of paper but i chose to stay up late to deal with it because i just want to get it over with

day 946 – nothingness

image

did absolutely nothing besides sleep, eat and more sleep. i don’t recall what i ate today but even if i did, it probably had no flavour to it. life is outright boring when i can’t be myself and function like always. time passes by a lot slower when i am not having any fun. i know it’s only been three days, but my body truly believes it’s been rotting for three weeks. i think i am going to try to hit the gym tomorrow regardless, unless i collapse before i make it there

day 917 – cleaning

image

i hate paperwork, and truly believe i am not meant to for this type of task. these were due for year end, but still have not yet figured out the boss’ ever changing standards. to further delay the task, i did some mild cleaning of my room and trunk today and finally cleared out some bags out of my closet. any kind of distraction is good distraction so i can continue to avoid the neverending paperwork. i guess i still found a way to be productive, but those paperwork will have to wait another day

day 683 – big teddy

image

poor big teddy’s arms and legs all tangled up and doesn’t look one bit comfortable. i would rather be sitting where big teddy is, away from the deafening chinese oldies karaoke. it’s another one of those richmond community dinners where we get dragged into listening to endless speeches which doesn’t even apply to us. the most difficult part being we also had to compete with the loud speakers and singing to carry out our meeting, which ended up to be more of a yelling match
