day 2413 – millie

this week didnt start off well and has felt off. i didn’t feel like going to work any day this week and been procrastinating on all my projects. also been consuming a lot more coffee than usually, sometimes more in the afternoon just to stay awake. i don’t like any interaction with millie, but i’d rather walk over and bug her while she sleeps instead of doing my work. maybe it’s a clear a sign i need a day off soon just to recoup

day 2335 – fondway cafe

didn’t want to work at all on christmas eve, but good thing it was only half day. i rushed off to apex for a full session only focusing on snatches. all makes in my snatch wave; it really helps that i’m practicing more frequently the past two weeks. after a quick lunch, i hit up fondway cafe to catch up with old coworkers. it’s always fun hanging out with the two girls because the best stories come out. we had a lot of good laughs all the way to cafe’s closing

day 2320 – low life

sleepless on a sunday night does not bode well for monday morning. i needed a coffee first thing when i got into work. i couldn’t help but stay awake thinking and overthinking of all the things i may have to give up. i can’t stop myself from crying thinking my life as an athlete could come to an abrupt end. i hadn’t done all that i wanted to accomplish and i clearly hadn’t expected it to approach so soon. i can’t stand to open up and tell many of my injury status so keeping it to myself was my next best option

day 2313 – cafe artisans

long talks and coffee kind of day on a cold sunday december afternoon. i can’t believe it’s already the start of december. i just couldn’t wait to turn the page past a horrendous november and move forward to a better december and an even brighter 2020 year ahead. by the time holiday rolls around, i hope to put the finger woes behind me and figure out much of the uncertainties surrounding my ankle

day 2265 – bad millie

the most difficult thing after a three day weekend is waking up for work the tuesday back. 6am rolled around way too soon and the sky was still pitch black. just trying to eat my lunch and millie got way too close to my liking. she knows i dislike her, yet she tries to pounce on my leg. i feel like the more i she knows i dislike her, the more she tries to get close to me and get my attention. maybe i’m the only one i the office that has yet to hold, feed or pet her

day 2250 – morning struggles

i’ve never been a morning person and i don’t know if i’ll ever be converted. waking up at 6am is always so hard, especially if i don’t climb into bed before 1am. trying to stay afloat with coffee and egg bites this morning morning. i won’t even get a chance to take a power nap before flipping tonight but i’ll do whatever i can. it’s crazy how september has flown by and we’re on the thirtieth of the month

day 2228 – self care sundays

img_20200124_1549582392730685212064989.jpghardly ever spend time on my skin care, but figured my lazy sunday is the perfect time to do it. the secret of staying twenty four is not doing anything for it and then treating it with the once in a blue moon face mask. i also got around to washing my car and washing my hockey gear, both of which was in dire need of cleaning. it’s cloudy and drizzly, hope it air dries in time before my next game
