day 2360 – deadlift knowledge

morning gym session to get my leg day in as well as help a friend out with hers. having a gym partner can be motivating and fun at the same time. i certainly did not mind teaching and sharing my fitness knowledge with whose who are eager and willing to learn. we hit it hard with the squats, deadlifts and leg press before moving onto back exercises and then finished with some superset core exercises. i have plenty of fitness goals i want to hit this year, and at the same time i hope i can also help her reach hers

day 2263 – photography walk

caught up with a friend and went outside to enjoy what may be the last sunshine of this year. it was a productive yet adventurous photography walk through olympic village and mount pleasant. we stopped to take pictures of many art structures and murals. a little disappointed we didn’t get any beta5 puffs before they sold out, but earnest is nothing to be disappointed about either. taking advantage of open gym because i can afford to have a late night

day 2185 – hydrocortisone

the mosquito bite from yesterday got so out of hand that i couldn’t concentrate on anything. nurse friend said i may have cellulitis and should see a doctor at emergency, but instead i rushed to walmart and settled for some topical cream with hydrocortisone. i even pulled out of hockey last minute because it was burning hot. i felt horrible for staying in on such short notice especially when it’s the start of playoffs for civil war

day 1502 – goalie gear

it’s so exciting i got my hands on some old goalie gear. i’ve got half the gear and hopefully another friend can lend me the other half to complete the set. there’s no secret i’ve always wanted to try playing goal sever since i was a kid growing up and watching hockey. in the end my lack of size is a disadvantage to goaltending, but i think i’ll still be a good one despite being small. it never hurts to try it and make it a dream come true

day 1499 – worked up

img_20200203_1330436077560553835479663.jpgsorting out my feelings got me more down. such a downer i had no appetite despite being hungry, loss of words despite wanting to converse, no interest in working out despite it being my happy place. because a dear friend reminded me that i must treat myself well and do what makes me happy – that got me to the gym today. always reiterated and reminded that should i be undervalued, i have no obligations to be taken for granted. i made it to the gym today which made me happier, but not a good one when failing on my routine stuff

day 97 – korean name

so┬ámy korean friend told me this is how my name is sounded out in alphabet and written in korean characters. i don’t know how to read it nor do i know what it means exactly, but its still good to know in case i ever need to introduce myself in korean. i learn something new everyday

day 44 – my friend

think i had overdone it yesterday doing something odd or not realizing what i had done that made it more sore than it needs to be. in search of my good friend ben to solve all my problems and allow my body to continue to work. where’s my magical ben when i need him very so badly
