day 1685 – millwork sample 

in the icon building inspecting the quality of vietnam millwork. overcapacity at work since everyone wants to get things in before the christmas closure. somehow i will need to wrap up all these jobs before i go on break. there’s a first for everything and today, i sat in my first ever interview. i was very nervous being part of the interview panel because what i say could make or break the interviewee

day 1605 – vachl debut

my legs hates me for pushing it so hard so often but here i am excited to be playing my first game with new vachl teammates. the bench was short but it was a lot fun and i made some good plays plus shots of goal. the game was fun and the pace is similar to what i’m used to so no big adjustments needed. i’m expecting myself to make great improvements this season and take my game to the next level. next game mental note to self i need to bring hockey socks, replenish hockey bag with tape supply, and find time to sharpen skates. it’s inexcusable i failed to have those necessities done for today

day 1593 – evaluation

vachl evaluation day for us new league players to be placed on teams. we skated through a number of skating and stick handling drills before a scrimmage. it was all pretty standard; was hoping my pregame workout didn’t tire out my legs as much. slightly shaken after a goalie poke check inadvertently speared me in the ribs but two breakaway goals to be happy about. it’s the first time mo decided show up to any of my hockey action; i thought i did fairly well for the most part. a subtle elated feeling to see that he can be there sometimes, even if he was only there for the hockey

day 1548 – choice words


an angry parent came screaming in both mando and canto gave me all i could handle while sifu is away in asia. the more he raised his voice, the less i heard; he thought he could intimidate me, but even if i was, i couldn’t show any of it since i had to protect those below me. given the circumstances, i remained very calm and made sure he didn’t cross my line. i was startled being my first time dealing with such situation, but the fact that i held my ground made him back off. in the end i got some choice words for the angry parent that disrupted my class. one more step forward, and i probably would have called the police

day 1461 – all business 

landed in vegas new york new york for my first ever business trip. travelling with my manager is a scary thought, but after having lunch and an afternoon with him, he’s actually a pretty cool guy. tonight is the only free time i will have. i didn’t expect the fitness centre hours to be so lame, so i explored and chilled around the hotel. i had mixed feelings all the way here because i didn’t want to leave my comfort zone and feel so alone, but i’m going to make the best of it and get ready to work

day 1317 – quadruple star

second playoff game in four days is ample of hockey for me this week. i was very reserved going into this game but that was all erased when i got my fourth star on this hat. i skated hard, scored my first career playoff goal and my nicest goal by far – a one timer without hesitation. took two bodychecks from my own teammate that knocked me to the ice; i’m sure i’ll feel them tomorrow. that’s enough late night for the week, i really need the sleep to heal up

day 1245 – disc pistol

i rolled my eyes when i was first introduced to pistols three years ago because i didn’t think i could. i was in for a big surprise today  when i found out i mastered the weighted disc pistol. i’m very happy this was unlocked at my morning appointment today. i have no idea how many times i watched and rewatched this clip. of course, this all happened prior to being treated by the physio when he forcefully adjusted my knees and rearranged my back and ribs that’s still preventing me from cleans
