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

day 1867 – underconstruction reunion

first vacation day of this year is when an underconstruction crew comes for a visit. this group has been through and abundance together and apart. no matter how far apart we may live, we always got each other. on our day off. we went though the native land of tsawwassen to shop at mills outlet, ate dinner on reserve land of marpole, and tried the famous japanese matcha dessert at nana’s. we had a blast talking about the past, but also excited planning for the future

day 1817 – furniture shopping

i lost track of how many times i pressed the snooze button, but i slept in until my poor body was ready to make any type of movement. my lazy day off was mostly spent with my parents shopping for both furniture and groceries. we came to a decision and laid down three and a half grand for a set of leather sofa. i really could have played another hockey game, but realistically i need to be a sloth so my legs could rest. it’s nice to be able to help my parents out; something i miss doing for my parents

day 1468 – me menu

called everything off and put myself and only myself on today’s menu cause i need time alone to set my priorities straight. absolutely no work related tasks today – no work for the first time in sixteen days. i was going down the wrong path of cramming work in to avoid idle time which in turn has even more negative effect on my mental health. can’t say i’m not a workaholic but then realized i was more burnt out than ever. so first time sleeping in until eight, helped my parents moved furniture, went for a workout and cleaned my room. that is not to say i don’t see the relationship struggles, but we’ll both be working on it together. i do feel better thinking i’ve reset my priorities and reorganized my life for the upcoming week

day 1353 – work is work 

it’s good friday so i don’t have to be at the office; why not work some more in my home office on a day that i’m off. at home is the time to relax, but cranking up the productivity cleaning my room, looking at spreadsheets, crunching numbers, finishing my graphics, and even getting most of my taxes done. it’s a good thing i finish these tasks before heading out of town

day 1333 – saturday off

so this is what a saturday off feels like – no 7am alarm, doing my research, getting myself caught up with planning before an active stretching session. moving was difficult since i’m ultra sore from whatever i pushed my body to do yesterday, but i’ll take the soreness. hitting the spot with some ramen and some quality time with mo. i’m going to enjoy all twenty four hours of this because it’ll be a while before i can say that again
