day 2524 – courtesy car

my car’s exhaust pipe has been really loud and rattly the last week. i had to make an appointment with autowest to get that looked at before the statutory holiday. luckily sonic is still under warranty so the loaner car and diagnostic check is covered. unfortunately, i have to pay for the overpriced gas fuel the dealership charges. i get to keep this x2 until after canada day

day 2479 – squamish drive

i was pretty bummed out the weather cancelled my tennis plans. instead of sitting around wasting my saturday, my friend and i decided to take a road trip up to squamish to pick up the plates another friend offered to lend me. it was a long drizzly drive, but it was nice to take shadow out for what might possibly be my last road trip with him. we got home and couldn’t wait to put the weights to good use – a one rep max kind of session. from the get go, i said i would be satisfied being able to deadlift one hundred and eighty five but i went on to attempt a twenty hundred and five which was a no go

day 2402 – onezo rose

i taught through the whole taekwondo shift plus poomsae training and didn’t once get to sit down. i was so tired i honestly didn’t even care for dinner. all i wanted to do was make it out to onezo on their last day of rose tapioca. first time trying onezo, first time trying rose pearls and first time making a special trip just to get a bubble tea. the rose with the grapefruit pulp gave it a unique sweet and sour taste. i drank that and passed out before eleven o’clock hit

day 2361 – board games night

took what was basically a road trip out to get to an hd board games afternoon. it was a forty five minutes drive out to white rock from my house. we played many games of telestration before switching onto sushi go party. i wasn’t expecting to play past 8pm so i had to skip my originally planned open gym. i was okay with it because time flew by as we were having too much fun

day 2111 – sleep day

i woke up feeling fine somehow started to lose track of what was going on around me at work at 10am. i was feeling all flu-like symptoms including drowsiness, dizziness, fatigue, chills, and aches. i pushed through until the end of the day which i really shouldn’t have. it was an iffy drive home, but i did my best to stay alert on the road. i immediately crashed on my bed the second i got into my room and didn’t give a crap about anything else

30 share it [four]

good to have a sunny december sunday, although i hear the snow will start to fall overnight. i can call it a laid back sunday; morning spent cramming away to meet deadlines, afternoon watching and hanging out, finished off with an evening of more cramming. once i get this term over with, i can enjoy my break and christmas season, not to mention catch up on the many episodes i’ve missed

day 982 – squeaky clean

i had the intention of washing my car many weeks ago, but i always found a reason to postpone it. it’s always been a top priority, but as busy as i was, i never had time to give my car a bath until today. i forget how much hard work is involved in car washing, but my aching legs were putting up a fight. after almost two hours, shadow is finally nice and clean inside out. no more chrome wheels excuse needed because my ride is squeaky clean once again

day 904 – parking skills

i know real estate in vancouver is expensive and tough to come by, but that’s one tight spot there. no wonder it’s one of the last spots left vacant and the amount of paint left on the columns says it all. i guess i could use this to my advantage because i trust my parking skills enough to take that spot. i never come here at this time of the day, but i also never expected this parkade to be so full at this hour

day 707 – spin to delta

image

felt like taking a long drive out to the delta district tonight with one purpose in mind. i drive lots and i go all around the cities, but rarely do i get a chance to or have a reason to go so south past richmond. the atmosphere feels so different here where everything seems so sparse and mild. this is my new cool hangout place in delta, i guess there’s more reason to venture out here than before.

胡鴻鈞 – 幸福

really like a handful of his songs to complement a very good voice, this one especially sticks for some reason. it’s on the mellow side, a bit of a change from the other upbeat tunes i like to listen to when at the gym. i never mind seeing his song pop up in my playlist during my drives, kind of like what the song suggests – happiness
