day 2315 – christmas tree top

once last week of november hits, everyone was putting up their christmas trees. i was a little behind but my christmas tree is finally up in my living room piled with decorations and lights. my family typically decorates all over the interior of the house, but the past two years we’ve lessened because taking it down is not as fun. this month’s electric bills will be higher than other months

day 2299 – home working

too sick and contagious to be going into the office so i finally got approval for a remote laptop. i could very well not be working and resting would do me good, but there’s just way too many rushed deadlines. it’s a smarter and safer option for the company because who knows how many people i could infect if i went in. with the amount of coughing fits i have, i was not in the condition to even be outside. all the monitors on my desk kind of makes it look like a security office

day 2282 – allan mcgavin

starting off november with some good news. four days, five clinics and seven physicians later, i finally have my name on the long mri waitlist. back at the ubc allan mcgavin sports clinic again, this time the sports medicine doctor deems that mri is now a necessity. i’ve been needing this referral for eight months. the two doctors did a bunch of assessements on my foot and deduced the idea of a bone breakage. although a liagment issue isn’t easier to deal with, it’s a relief to know i can ditch the aircast

day 2278 – back handspring

i’m very happy to have ended my dry spell by landing my back handspring on floor after class. this is a move i wanted a while back but was told to hold off until my back tuck was consistent. drilling it the past weeks while staying patient with my bounding moves has really paid off. although it’s been feeling good the past week and getting spotted floor attempts, i couldn’t get myself to floor it by myself. good thing i was pushed to just do it today and landed a decent one on my first attempt. aside from my back handspring, i’ve been feeling pretty good with a few other moves

day 2247 – kip up

i was forced to re-train aerials because my ankle was feeling wonky after a landing. big surprise came as my long lost aerial, that wasn’t even close to landing for weeks, felt super solid on blue mat today. the bonus of the session came at the end when thought i’d get a few reps of kip ups in to close the night. somehow it just started to click today; i fluked the first one and fluked another half a dozen. i’m reminded that sometimes reward comes simply from being stubborn and persistent about training and getting reps in. i’m hoping that’s the case for some of the other moves i’m chasing

say 2162 – spiderman costume

my spiderman suit took a while to get to me, but at least the long wait is finally over. at first glance, i didn’t think it would fit, but after trying it on, i think it’s made unisex. i’ll need to make several adjustments and upgrades before i can wear it out. rest assure it will be ready and look amazing come halloween. the whole flightclub crew is really going with the all out spiderman theme

day 2070 – tsujiri extravaganza

i said i’d treat myself to tsujiri once i land my roundoff backtuck which i did. it’s finally my turn to try out the hyped tsujiri matcha dessert. the rumoured lineup is real and if you don’t go in the middle of the day for the opening rush, there’s no chance of getting their cakes. can’t believe there’s so much hype for this place even after a month of its grand opening. the foodies i went with got multiple cakes and drinks, but i settled with a double fromage matcha cake
