day 2226 – squirtle girls

friday night squirtle squad games are back in session. since i’m just part timing this season, i get to be a forward. my line was in the attacking zone for the most part but we lack some chemistry. we didn’t win today but it’s really good to see the squirtle faces again because we always have a good time in the change room. i even did a back flip inside after the game. i’m starting to not be too selective with my surfaces which i’m assuming is a good sign

day 2224 – nacho season opener

we had a rough start with some jersey cafluffle, but nacho friends season opener turned out to be really fun. because we’re a brand new team still trying figure so much out, it took us two periods to get on the scoreboard. i had a rough first period trying to get my legs underneath me and it didn’t help that i dove to block a puck and ended up feeling like my airway was obstructed. you’d think i learned my lesson, but i dove again in the third period to keep the puck on side which ended up to be the first assist of two. we lost 3-2 but it was a fun and tame game

day 2156 – shower squad

homemade wings, pizza and charcuteries board to go with tnt bought matcha popiscles for the shower squad. we had lots of catching up to do after not having hung out for over four weeks. we ate and talked, ate some more and talked some more before playing several rounds of taboo. the night didn’t end until 1:30am because we had so much to do talk about. this was a good night and wish it would happen more often

day 2153 – nintendo switch

a cozy night staying in playing nintendo switch and eating sushi. just a small get together to celebrate an ex-coworker’s birthday. also a good time to catch up and digress a little on the things that’s been happening around. after i got a few things off my chest, we changed the mood with some games. i rarely get to play video games, but it’s no surprise i got creamed in every game we played. we had good laughs all around and that’s all it matters

day 2087 – sechelt home

the squirtle squad has arrived at sechelt, the place we’ll call home for the next three days. the twelve of us have this beautiful place all to ourselves thanks to a hookup. we only have enough beds for half of us, but i think sleeping arrangement will be the least of our worries. i’ve never been to sechelt despite it only being a forty minute ferry ride away. consider this a season end team bonder on top of our championship celebration. the weekend ahead will be full of eating, drinking, gaming and a lot of laziness. we brought so much food and alcohol in anticipation of a weekend of hotpot and barbecue

day 2085 – quote board

i need to find some way to keep myself motivated at work. too many things are happening around the office, all that doesn’t make any sense from a business standpoint. i can’t wait for the long weekend so i don’t have to deal with the changes that just keeps getting worse one after another. on the bright side, i’m just two days away from the squirtle team getaway to vancouver island. we don’t have much planned, but whatever it is will be better than what it is now

day 1969 – change room fun

this is the last game for squirtle before the holiday. my legs are really feeling it being the second game in two nights. it doesn’t help that someone fell onto my already bad leg on the very first shift. we have fun on and off the ice – post game fun in the girls change room before the boys joined in. we played some target trust games and i got the bottle challenge on the second try. going to rest up overnight and see if my legs will be apt to go back on ice tomorrow morning
