day 2334 – little human

this little human came into work with her mom today but didn’t want to be with her. instead, she spent much of her time at my desk. she kept my busy by asking me to keep her busy. she wasn’t into drawing or colouring, so i gave her a bunch of fun homework. she wanted to take a selfie with me on her mini camera, but ended up cutting off half my forehead and half her face. i’m glad she had fun day at office, and as much as i didn’t want to come to work when nobody else was working, she made my day by go a lot faster

day 2278 – back handspring

i’m very happy to have ended my dry spell by landing my back handspring on floor after class. this is a move i wanted a while back but was told to hold off until my back tuck was consistent. drilling it the past weeks while staying patient with my bounding moves has really paid off. although it’s been feeling good the past week and getting spotted floor attempts, i couldn’t get myself to floor it by myself. good thing i was pushed to just do it today and landed a decent one on my first attempt. aside from my back handspring, i’ve been feeling pretty good with a few other moves

day 2259 – film set

a couple men came into the office carrying a whole bunch of equipment. apparently, we hired a filming company to record some footages for our new company website video. i don’t know what it’s all about, but they conveniently set their equipment at my desk and i was too shy to go back to my desk to work. i was then forced to take lunch because i couldn’t do anything productive

day 1453 – hamberite brunching

we rarely get to meet up but it’s good that we still keep in touch through the years. didn’t get much sleep last night but up for a precious get together when one flies over to visit. this is such a cool camera lens add on, i want one too. had a great day at hockey where i had a lot of fun and gave me some positivity. i played a great all around chicks game scoring a goal, knocking down a guy and good forechecking. a very satisfying performance to make up for yesterday’s terrible performance

day 895 – koala attack

the camerawoman dropped me a mail this morning to showcase what was captured at last night’s rdl drop in. some crazy people started pouncing on me the moment i entered the gym as a way to show their love, or the love for my koalas. all i wanted was to be at peace with my koalas, but that wish was not granted. i do spend a fair share of time with the dodgeball community, and this is the kind of bond we have

resolution series: [seventeen] communicate

the advancement in the technological world has brought us wonders, many of which we never thought possible a decade ago. technology is great when it comes to connectivity and communication. getting up to date has never been easier and getting news out through the ever growing number of social media platforms has never been so convenient. but sometimes it just doesn’t get the message across the right way. its because of all these devices that we get a little too caught up in our own world and forget the big picture of direct contact and interaction. i must admit i am a culprit myself, always staring down at my phone swiping away and checking my newsfeed for updates on things that could probably be put on hold. there are times when it shouldn’t become top priority because there’s someone nearby that may benefit from a little conversation. while it doesn’t mean that we must hide our phones away at dinner tables, it’s a good idea not to be staring at it every waking second. good communication is the key to success; often, the good old fashioned face to face interaction is the most trustworthy one that always gets the message across the proper way. never underestimate the power of eye contact, facial expression and body language. i love my technology for what it brings me and i wouldn’t give it up, but i will always use it with care so technology doesn’t become the downfall of my communication skill

day 523 – dslr

my dslr camera from boxing day shopping came in a week ago, yet i have not had little time for myself let alone time to play around with my new toy and put it to good use. can’t wait until i can relax to have some leisure time and personal time to do the many other things that also lies within my interest. so much to do so little time, i worry with each ticking second
