day 2418 – social distance

coronavirus emergency took another step suspending all non essential services until further notice. that means my chiropractor appointment this morning is cancelled. my lifting gyms are still open but that may also change any minute. even i don’t think i’ll risk going to steve nash or apex for the time being. good thing my tricking gym is still in operation or else i’ll have nothing to do. i really hope that doesn’t get too out of hand because i don’t think i can get used to this concept of social distancing

day 2391 – shopping with mom

my extended long weekend is reserved to hangout with mom. it’s been far too long since the two of us had any extended quality time together. she wanted to go shopping so we went for a brunch before queensborough outlet. i took her to cora’s, shared a smoked salmon benedict and still couldn’t manage to finish. it was a good day off just being out with my mom. unfortunately my foot started hurting from the heavy tape job done by physio

day 2377 – stay home

didn’t feel like going into work at all and the snow helped me make that call. really have been down in the dumps and needed a break from everything. there’s just so much to think about and lots to plan for if i indeed want to make all my dreams come true. my body and brain needs more than this one day to reset, but i’m getting started on it and foresee i’ll take some time off soon. i stayed home, slept in, and did absolutely nothing. i did once think about going to the gym but i had no car for that

day 2257 – monday off

compressed work week saving me by letting me sleep in like no other. also blessed to have the day off to take my mom out for birthday lunch. basically woke up at 11am, then met up with my parents near both their offices to enjoy some beef noodles. stopped by the gym to stretch, roll and use the sauna before heading out to flightclub. had a lot of fun after hours training, getting more back handspring reps in. hopefully all these reps will pay off sooner rather than later. i opted not to join the crew for dinner because i had some cake errands to run before the stores closed

day 2243 – new ubc

its my first day off for the compressed work schedule. i haven’t been back to ubc in years; the campus seemed so familiar yet unfamiliar. lots changed since my graduation but memories will stay forever. the appointment i waited to get with the sports medicine doctor since march was a disappointment and a total waste of my time. he delivered the worst news i could possibly get by telling there’s nothing he could do if now. he followed that up by saying had he seen me right after the injury, he would have suggested putting it in a boot to help the recovery. i was outraged when i heard that because i had been on the stupid waitlist for six months

day 2223 – sloth day

my flex day consisted of no alarm clock, no schedule and barely any moving. desperately needed this day off after spending many hours working blackbelt test, training for blackbelt test and taking the blackbelt test. the boards i held and the boards i kicked left so many cuts and gashes. basically spent the morning watching a netflix movie and another movie at the theatres in the afternoon. no part of me wants to go back to work tomorrow

day 2116 – minoru park

i took full advantage of a saturday off taekwondo by doing things i wouldn’t otherwise have the time for. i first took a trek out to a spa and had an acupressure massage. on my way home, i stopped at the supermarket to grab some vacation snacks and a quick bite. then, i met up with a few flightclubers for the highly anticipated maiko matcha float and that didn’t disappoint. after that, we camped out at minoru park where i was suppose to study for tomorrow’s pretest and flip or play only during my breaks, but it turns out i didn’t get through a single page in my study guide. instead, we spent a couple hours filming tricks as well as teaching them how to toss a frisbee disc. i’m pretty happy with the footage i got from the back flip and feel like it’s improved a little
