day 1963 – gr8 party

rushed out of work to attend my second company christmas party at harrison. one of the few occasions i will dress up plus wear heels and accessories. same as last year, there it was buffet style with open bar, dance floor, speeches, photo booth and door prizes. i wad happy with my door prize and a gift card from the trivia. what i least expected was an award for receiving the most teamwork star performers of 2018. all i was worried about was tripping as i go up on stage to retrieve it. went back up to my hotel room and laid on my bed expecting to be called to the party room

day 1918 – venom pumpkin

my team’s jack-o-lantern submission, the venom, came second in pumpkin carving contest. dressing up to work today is obligatory because this office takes halloween very seriously. i didn’t put a lot of thought into planning my costume but pulled out a last minute burglar outfit. a whole afternoon of halloween extravaganza with food, contests, games and pumpkins. it was actually quite tiring and maybe more tiring than actually working

day 1858 – wally gets married

partying it up at a special wedding with friends from both dodgeball family and softball family. it’s an occasion i would temporarily put my dietary needs on hold since one of my long time teammate, friend and brother is getting married. the dinner reception had wonderful speeches and capped off perfectly with gelato served. i have to rethink my eating tactic prior to consuming alcohol; what i had eaten tonight left my unprepared. i drank a few more than i intended to, but it i guess i should have expected it with an open bar.at least i drank responsibly since i was walking distance from home

day 1054 – fancy feast

#justimage

a rare fancy occurrence on the island for a belated celebration of our significant day. we chowed down on the many fresh seafood dockside had to offer including squid, halibut, salmon, scallop and mussels. i couldn’t have asked for more than celebrating with great company in a great atmosphere. time really flew us by; we’ve been keeping it steady and strong. three months ago, i couldn’t imagine what i was getting myself into; today, i can’t imagine what it would have been without

my outfit of the day going to the all important vdl 10 years celebration. this is a night i will remember because i am sober for the duration of the social. getting to see all the old faces who came before my time and helped guide this league into what it is ten years later. the growth of this league is amazing and it was only made possible because this committed group of people came together to build a community. i am truly happy to be a part of the building team because vdl has given me so much in return

day 455 – vdl halloween week

image

it is a vdl tradition of halloween dress up week. halloween enthusiasts came dressed up with some cool costumes ideas  for vdl contest to win some unknown prizes. i don’t traditionally dress up and i had totally neglected to brainstorm of any costume ideas. i was high in spirit but low in energy and mobility as i was still mightily sore from previous gym session, someone must have forgotten the importance of protein

day 91 – not just any dodgeball night

on halloween week of dodgeball, much of the focus of my teammate is on not getting hit by the genies spout during games, avoiding getting swept by crazy tier 1 teams…while playing with caution and minimal talking because i still don’t have my voice back and competition is right around the corner
