day 2254 – chunyang

friday finally came and i couldn’t be more happier the work week is over and i have the following monday off. trying out a new bubble tea spot on alderbridge because they have buy one get one fifty off. i had their brown sugar pearls milk tea and their pearls are really soft and chewy. it’s a pity they don’t have much seating for guests. we were basically standing by the bay doors freezing my butt off because i was wearing shorts

day 2033 – lumber

cut some lumber with my dad to get ready for my next do it yourself project. my dad has the basic tools but not a woodworking workshop at home. it made cutting wood slightly more tedious and difficult, but still got the job done nonetheless. i still need to gather more material and go through this same process again. i’m hope this will all turn out as well as i drew it up on sketchup and cad

day 2029 – sick day

instead of going into work, i stayed at home all day because i woke up with a headache, sore throat and the feeling that i’m fending off an oncoming cold. after calling in sick at 7am, i managed to sleep until past 1pm. sleeping fourteen hours is a really, really rare occasion since i usually get six or less. i logged a total of less than two thousand steps so my fitbit probably thought i was dying

day 2028 – snatch techniques

it’s a jam packed statutory holiday that started with olympic lifting session, followed by work, then tutor and finished off coaching poomsae training. snatching with lower weights to focus on technique. i must say my snatches felt real good today, as did my shoulder. as for front squats, upped the weight for the fourth consecutive week and it felt super heavy. still felt good to have moved up and closer to bodyweight. lifting session was fun, however, when i was at work and tutor i started to feel something was coming on. towards the end of the day, i feel as if i had caught a cold

day 2021 – car scrapes

it was cold and snowy morning, but made it into the office with my mom’s rav4. i was surprised management let us off early since i’m at a company that forced me to risk going into the office to work even with a broken hand. i didn’t leave early since i had every intention to go flip. the conditions going home from richmond was not good at all. there up a bus and truck stuck on the off ramp of knight bridge which caused traffic to be backed up i’ll have to make a judgment call for work when i wake up tomorrow morning. winter has official arrived in vancouver

day 2013 – frozen pipes

shadow desperately needed a bath, but the outdoor pipes are frozen. i attempted to do a quick rinse anyway. i found filled a bucket with water, but that clearly didn’t work as planned every time i put water on to the car, it would immediately freeze and turn into ice. i’m afraid i won’t be able to give it a good wash until the weather warms up, which hopefully wouldn’t be too long of a wait

day 1981 – icebox

waking up at 6am was utterly difficult after sleeping in for so many. greeted by the ice cold office on the first day back at work. the heating system was doing the exact opposite of what it should be doing – bringing the outside cold air into the office. i was so cold my extremities were frozen and my brain refused to function. all i wanted to do was hover over my heater to stay sane. i felt utterly unproductive, but i guess a lot of others were on the same boat. i was told winter is coming
