day 1311 – i love duffels

img_20200204_1903346077129904961109899.jpgpart of the packing process is making a list of what i need to bring, part of it is choosing which duffel to take along. i have a go to duffel for different occasions and activities; competition travels is the adidas with mooto backpack. practicing packing with urgency because i’m procrastinating. it’s only a weekend portland trip, but i still end up running out of space to put everything i think i’ll need

day 1219 – gaming laptop

image
picked up my new toy from msi and i’m bringing it home to my dad who’s my personal technician. i’m no gamer, but bought another gaming laptop because i need the graphic cards capabilities. i argue this is a necessity for what i do and what i study. i vouch to work extra hard at school and for work purpose to prove that i do indeed need a new laptop and it’s crazy rendering speeds

day 1111 – my nano

image

the arrival of my order with my new nano got me super excited. my shoe racks are getting very full and soon i will need an expansion, but i felt like it was the right time to treat myself to another pair of crossfit training shoes. i can never get tired of shopping for sports stuff, and i can never have too much training gear. i am feeling amped up and ready to take these into the gym and do more aggressive lifts

day 1098 – two series

dsc_9738.jpgwelcoming my brother’s two series to the family. after saying goodbye to his mazda rx8 more than a month ago, i finally got a good close up view of his new car since he brought it home. the blue exterior is alright, but the spanking new five spoke rims look really nice. looking at it reminds me that i need to change my car tires and rims after the summer season

day 1087 – uniform frenzy

image

tidying up my closet and realized my uniforms take up a chunk of my closet space. over the years, i have amassed nine uniforms: seven black collared, one poomsae competition, one blue demo and one colour belt white collared. if i hadn’t placed them all side by side, i would have never known there could be so many shades of white. some are more commonly used and some are more significant than others, but they all i like them all

day 1065 – second closet

image

my car trunk has assumed the role of my second closet. not only do i spend a lot of time on the road running from one event to the next, but my gear and equipment has clearly outgrown the allowable space i have in my room. currently, five pairs of shoes, a pair of skates, tennis rackets, pvc pipe and hoodies are some of the things that reside in the back of my car. sooner or later i maybe be looking for an extension to a third closet

day 1006 – mi beats

image

small mi headphones for my beats came in today. it came through my mailbox well protected in a very sleek looking box, packaged so neatly and delicately. i have never bought a small mi product before but reviews show this is a popular item for consumers. being made in china, it’s one of those hit or miss things. if it works as well as it looks, it will be a replacement for my existing headphones. i can’t wait to test them out in the gym

day 1005 – korean belt

image

received my all korean mooto belt that i have been eyeing as my birthday present. the only condition is i have to keep up with the training up to and including nationals. i admit i have more belts than i need, but they’re all different and special in their own ways. this one will be highly prized and maintained mainly for competition purposes. it’s one of those things that needs to be kept in pristine condition and only worn at special events. i wonder how many i have left in me

day 977 – woodburn

image

stopped by woodburn for a quick shopping spree before heading back north. shopping can be a dangerous thing for my poor wallet. i went ahead and bought yet another pair of nike frees to add to my collection. it was a very enjoyable and fulfilling trip here in portland; i found myself preserving for what i wanted to accomplish. i can’t wait to get through that six hour drive and be back in vancity

day 967 – reebok crossfitters

image

so excited my new reebok crossfits arrived in the mail today. i tried them on immediately after getting home and they fit and feel amazing on my feet. i have a strong feeling i am going to fall in love with this once i get this into the gym. this is the first reebok shoes i bought since my early 2000s basketball shoes. now i can fully retire my first generation free run that served me so well day in day out. impulsive purchases got the better of me as with many other occasions; i definitely need to hold back for a while
