day 1746 – ripped off


being a saturday, i hadn’t had much to eat all day – a peanut butter toast and almond milk. hence i was really looking forward to some good food at the exec season ender. that was not the case. when our 7:30pm reservation time came around, only eleven people were on time. as a result, everything was delayed and we didn’t get our first dish until quarter past eight. by then i had to stop eating because i had hockey to play. i stayed as long as i could, i mingled and chatted, but that doesn’t change i only had one gyoza down my stomach. needless to say, i left for hockey hungry and feeling ripped off. i played and scored, and left the rink for food so my stomach can stop eating itself

vdl baker retreat 

rumour has it that the annual vdl baker retreat is described as one of a kind. rumour was bang on as the retreat didn’t disappoint and was nothing short of crazy. the three days spent with these lovely people certainly left many unforgettable memories. lots of stories took place over the weekend, but will be left untold because whatever happens at baker stays at baker. the kardashian cabin was cozy and only made cozier with twelve people in a cabin that regularly sleeps ten. i thought i’d rather go ski at mount baker because i didn’t want so much down time, but i’m glad i didnt. there’s several first moments, like sitting in the outdoor hot tub in the rain, drinking vodka via free pour, eating filipino spaghetti, seeing mountainous plates of bacon, kicking a six foot two guy in the face and walking into a green shop even knowing i’ll absolutely dislike it. i also learned more about myself and those around me. i would never survive in the wilderness because i am incapable of starting a fire, nor would i be able to go three straight days without being connected in some form. i found that some of the biggest hearts are found within the dodgeball exec body cause no matter the situation, we all care and look out for each other like family. i found out that the darker side of people’s past as i’m glad they felt at ease letting me into their inner self. after all, elected to devote my time for eight seasons to be one of these awesome people. to sum it up, it was a weekend of an unhealthy amount of booze and food everywhere, but it was one of the best weekends i’ve had in a long while. this was one of the rare times in the past year where i laughed genuinely; let’s keep the smiles up for the rest of the year
