embracing 2015

image

2014 had a lot of ups and downs, crazy adventures and awesome experiences but all in all, its a mediocre year. a breakthrough year from dodgeball, not only became a league executive and marcom graphics designer, but also became a tier 3 champ, tier 6 champ and came ever so close to tier 2 champ. took a step further into taekwondo competition, traveling out of town for nationals and governor’s cup, putting our school on the american radar and even bringing home some hardware. traveling experiences brought the team together, giving us teambonding experiences and adventures. at times, i got a little carried away with drinking and partying but it was part of letting a little loose. fortunate to have the opportunity to get closer with some people in my life that’s given me a new perspective in life. the downfall came with the countless injuries i suffered with nonstop and uncontrollable knee dislodges, sport threatening knee injury, unstable hip alignment, ankle sprains, concussions, blackouts, undisclosed wrist injury soon to have a mri confirmation of severity

embracing 2015 with many ambitions, new goals,  and hoping to create a lot more amazing memories with the people in my life

  • stay healthy, refrain from injuries, train well and get stronger
  • eat better, work at my weaknesses and stick with the game plan
  • taekwondo competition trek
  • spend more quality time with family
  • be more open minded and step out of my comfort zone to try new things
  • meet more people and develop a well rounded network
  • reconnect with and make time for old friends that tends to be neglected
  • pick up photography
  • continue blogging and bettering my site
  • travel to explore the world
  • stop being a workaholic and appreciate the little things in life

ready to make this the best year yet!!

twenties series: [one] travel

image

the world is very big with many fascinating places full of opportunities to explore and see the big picture so to speak. traveling will not only broaden our horizon but also increase our knowledge on what is out there beyond our naked eye. these adventures allow us to distant ourselves from our regular everyday life and infinite stress at hand. traveling also creates meaningful and lifelong memories that no one else can strip us of. the time away from all the norm is a test and a telling story of what you have taken granted for all along; afterall, there is no place like home. traveling is not by all means easy on the bank account as it is a big commitment that requires plenty of planning but there is no reward without hard work. i for one haven’t gotten the opportunity to make the most out of my travels. there’s a whole list of cities and places i would love to visit and i will be making a conscious effort to traveling to wherever my heart desires. regardless of small trips, big trips and road trips ranging from europe, asia or even a simple drive to seattle, its an investment i want to make. remember life stops at nothing so travel while you can, go out and see the world

day 184 – happy chinese new year!!

receiving red pocket is pretty standard. making phone calls back to hong kong and regurgitating dozens chinese proverbs is pretty standard. but it never gets old just seeing their faces or hearing their voices on chinese new year. chinese new year is not about receiving the money inside red pockets, it’s about cherishing each and every special moment spent with the ones you love and can’t live without. embracing the year of the horse, i look forward to everything you have in store for me
