day 2308 – ambidextrous

while i can’t use my right hand for a lot of things, i’m in the process of building up my skills to be ambidextrous. just a fun little comparison of my penmanship with the right and the left. i’m surprised it doesn’t look half bad with my left hand, but only it looks like an elementary school handwriting which probably took five times as long to complete. maybe i should also pick up how to use chopsticks with my left hand while i’m at it

day 2205 – sync x-out

i wasn’t pressing to regain confidence in my back tuck after necking it, but i’m happy to say i got it back only nine days since. thinking it’s time to ease myself into the x-out, i pleasantly progressed back onto the floor in just one day. i’m even happier i actually have some moves i can now sync with others. it really does help when i get to do it alongside one of the best. not only does it push me to go for it, it also allows me to study and compare what he’s doing batter and what i can do to get mine better. this is by far the best x-out i’ve ever done on floor and feeling grateful for all the support he’s given me

day 743 – small boat big boat

walking along side the waterfront in the afternoon and couldn’t help but notice the size differential of the two boats. when a cruise ship and a speed boat is put side by side, it makes the reference of a fish and a shark. reminds me of the time i went on an alaskan cruise where i was trapped on the ship with insurmountable food which almost made me sick. yes, so much food every day, every hour, every waking second, i thought i’d get seriously ill from seeing food
