day 2610 – afternoon walks

taking an quick afternoon break and getting some fresh air while there’s a glimpse of sunlight between during this rainy week. walking around the neighborhood and came across this laneway house that was under construction. i stopped by briefly to peek inside and get some inspirations. maybe i can get started at designing mine in case my parents offer goes through

day 2589 – storage solutions

continuing with my productive thursday routine by waking up early to model garage gym weight storage solutions, buy lumber, supervise a workout and shop for groceries all before noon. i’m really excited and can’t wait to pick up the bumper plates i ordered back in july. expecting that the worst of covid has yet to hit since so many things are resuming after labor day weekend

day 2485 – rogue sponsored

one of my quarantine project was to build a squat rack that stands out from the rest of the diy’s. though it’s only about ninety percent complete, i’m really happy with how it’s turning out. it looks sick and everything i had imagined in my head. the only downfall of the rack is certain parts of the wood can chip easily simply because it’s exposed to heavy contact. it’s been a fun experience full of learning, from designing to modeling to woodworking to constructing to spray painting. along the topic of fitness, i made a decision to start my bubble tea ban today because i’m starting a sixty day cut. during this time i’ll eat clean and be disciplined with my intake

day 2433 – home project

it’s been over a week since i last touched sketchup so thought it would good to take on a new personal project. not only will it satisfy my simulation craving, it’ll also allow me to keep up with my sketchup skills while passing time. after modeling my house, i would like to remodel it to make belief that i could renovate it the way i like it to be. if this turns out well, it could also be portfolio worthy

day 2323 – gingerbread house

the gumball mansion we tried to build at the office contest didn’t work so it ended up being a regular gingerbread house. it was too messy and dirty for my liking, definitely not something i would like to do often. nonetheless it was a fun short-lived hour that let me relive some of the childhood moments. i hope to find more of these joyous moments over the holiday season

day 2277 – girl can dream

a design concept i’ve stayed up many late nights thinking and working on this model. i’ve really taken this concept to heart hoping one day i could own a space like this and run my own business. i imagined a space reasonably sized, but with all the necessary equipment arranged in what i deem as the most ideal layout. a space i own could never go without a personal gym space. i wonder if and when this could become a reality. i understand for this to happen, a lot of steps and obstacles must be taken, but i’ll keep dreaming in the meantime

day 2260 – girls catchup

long overdue catchup for the girls. even though we’re all in different companies now, we’re still able to maintain connection. i think not being in the same departments made it more fun when sharing the information we know. sometimes when i hear what they say about their new job, it makes me wonder why i’m still at this company. i don’t necessary care for the spotlight, but it’s having my production goes unnoticed and often taken for granted

day 2236 – interiors

tired monday still trying to recover from the sleepless night at harrison. i got to work a little tardy but i didn’t really care. brother and sister in law has been sending pictures back to keep us posted on their vacation. this particular headboard interested me because it’s quite different than what i usually see. i believe him and his wife are currently in barcelona. they seem like they’re having lots of fun overseas

day 2160 – hawaii tradeshow

back to work the day after a long weekend didn’t have me jumping out of bed for joy. i almost overslept because i had forgotten to turn on the recurring the alarm clock. good thing my fitbit alarm woke me up quarter past six. the day could have been even worse; at least i’m doing something fun like rendering for the hawaii tradeshow. no olympic lifting today like my regular tuesday because i had gone yesterday

day 2145 – department change

going to work on monday morning with mixed emotions because the switch in position and department is considered a promotion. the fact i’m removed from the department i’ve grown with leaves a sour feeling. also having work with someone i need time and space from is rather uncomfortable. still, work must go on and i’ll be professional about it and keep the interaction at a business level. at the end of the day i just need to get my stuff done
