day 1813 – first base lady

off softball for two weeks and my timing is a bit off at both the batter’s box and at first base. i’m either a little early or late getting my bat around, but i’m sure it won’t be long until i make solid contact again. this season i’ve earned the trust of my teammates and proved that i can be the go-to first base woman. playing first base has it’s challenges. not only do i have to contend with the sun, protect myself, avoid the runner but also catch the ball. today was one of those days where i had to contend with the setting sun for the first four innings

day 1780 – father’s dinner

end of the week finally came and the eye bag represents how much the work week has really exhausted me. the evening was spent celebrating father’s day with the man that taught me much of what i know. the family is a whole unit and it would be incomplete without any one of the members. we’re all busy in our own ways, but we make sure that never changes. the whole family gets together during special times like this

day 1457 – sushiuomo

i quite like the new place we found and the temakis that was served. it was a feel good kind of day because i felt encouraged at work when my manager told me he praised me during the management meeting for how well i’ve been developing the new collection and the rhythm the technical team is in. makes me understand that my hard work isn’t transparent and good managers will always be there to let you know that

day 1456 – dugout view

playing softball with this back drop is quite the pleasure. i’m still thinking about the ump’s strike zone that made me strikeout. how can a pitch be called strike when i have to step back to avoid getting hit by the pitch?? playing first base is always fun and it always makes it better after making a few good plays. our opponent may be a tier above, but it turns out they’re a bunch of douchebags with poor sportsmanship

day 1399 – slopitch

the rain was coming down hard in richmond so i thought surely the rain would be even worse in burnaby. the league said games run as schedule and good call for them. the field was mucky, but the weather didn’t turn out too bad. i layered up to anticipate a chilly evening and it was. it was important to stay warm through the game so i had to keep moving in the dugout. i actually ran a lot of bases and had a good line at the plate too. thinking if it will be wise to play tomorrow because my hip is in a great deal of pain

day 1203 – world juniors

the best of the juniors started pouring into burnaby a few days ago and will be here this week for the biggest event in vancouver since olympic 2010. the rink i usually play hockey in is now converted into four hexagonal rings. the accreditation centre and training centre was full of big shots and young stars. never knew i could shake hands with or talk to so many masters in one day

day 984 – water walks

walking along the water just after sunset to wind down a great weekend full of activities. looking out into the water into the distant buildings and city lights gives us time to appreciate each other and recognize all that we have in our lives. never underestimate how a little time and the little things could add up to make a huge difference. cherish all the moments because time passes us by so much quicker than we expect it. so don’t let the chances slip away; express your thoughts, feelings with the deepest sincerity
