day 2201 – picture wall

i learned some new today, that my twinning photo from last halloween hangs outside the human resources office. i don’t visit downstairs often, but i was bored after lunch and decided to take a trip down. the wall features past office culture events like halloween, christmas party, summer barbecue, and other hd community events. things have changed a lot since that picture, some good and some bad

day 2113 – catchup time

it’s probably my fault that some hangouts happen less frequently than it should. finally catching up with a long time highschool friend over some food. it was good to just chat and download all the things that’s gone by. i realize all she wanted to do was to treat me to a meal for my birthday. i really do cherish that so much of our lives has changed, but our friendship hasn’t. maybe next time we can get a few of the core people out all at once

day 1978 – taekwondo clan

so happy to have another one of our meet ups while he comes back for a visit. i miss training, traveling and hanging out together with this gang. the good old days when we were altogether self training for every upcoming competition, getting through promotion tests and winging demostrations. we’ve all grown up and so much as changed, but it’s always going to be the same group that went through thick and thin. taekwondo would never have been the same without this gang. i hope next time we meet up, everyone’s back in town for good. i also hope one day we’ll be able to run a studio of our own, taekwondo family

day 1479 – quartz top

new quartz counter top and sink unit to show for as my parents continues to make changes and upgrades to the house. i wonder how much money my parents dished out to revamp the house this summer. the new layout is looking pretty rad but they don’t seem like they’re going to stop there since they mentioned about ordering new cabinet door fronts and new dining table top. there’s also talks about re-doing some of the living quarters on the top floor

day 889 – not a chance

this went out the door as fast as it came into my mailbox. in the past i would’ve left it on the counter waiting for someone else to claim it. today i threw it right out with no hesitation cause i want no part of this overpriced junk. i am confident to say turning down fastfood is something i would do in a heartbeat. making healthy choices simply because i want a well maintained system that won’t break down prematurely

welcoming 2016

2015 was a good year in the grand scheme of things. through the past year, i have learned a lot about myself and have a better grasp of what i want to attain and where i want to go. i realized my true ambitious self of not wanting to remain at the same level time after time, year after year. there was definitely not as much action as i would like in terms of taekwondo competitions, but sometimes fate and timing has a lot to do with it. continuing to be involved in the dodgeball community not only in vancouver, but expanded my team to richmond. there’s no surprise i remain injury-proned; but the frequency as well as the ability to heal myself has gotten progressively better. i cannot express how blessed i am to have met so many supportive people in my life that always lends a hand or provides motivational words so i can stay on track even when times get tough

here’s to welcoming 2016 with open arms with set goals and big ambitions to take everything to the next level. let’s write the next 365 days and make it a year to remember.

  • stay as injury-free as possible
  • eat clean, sleep earlier, train regularly
  • take on big challenges even if i am scared, that’s the only way to get to the next level
  • be more confident and less self-doubting
  • love myself, my family and my friends just the way we are
  • learn a new sport
  • pick up snowboarding
  • learn to code, write my website
  • complete obstacle courses
  • travel the world

i am ready to take on all these challenges. find my strong. it’s now or never
