day 1647 – karaoke party

the start of saturday morning shifts has begun so i’ll be working nine straight hours on saturdays between two jobs. i wonder how long i will last with sixty four hour work weeks before i burn out. i was tired after the two shifts but doesn’t change my plans for an impromptu karaoke and board games night. i had a good night chilling with peeps. it was the fun i used to have; the good company kept from thinking why i’m still feeling solo all the time. i miss the times when i could be out way past midnight and actually have a night life

day 1637 – lorraine replicas 

i came out to complete team lorraine as part of the dress up halloween wednesday. all i had to do with show up and my teammates brought the props to me. i know that i’ll always have my obyf teammates cheering me on, even when i’m the one on the sideline. their support for me and the team spirit they bring has been a difference maker during my coping time. i can’t wait to be back on the court with these neon guys, but i fear my chances of returning before this season ends is slim

day 1583 – conquered war


game three of civil war playoffs settled everything tonight and my jade rabbits prevailed. my team took home the cup and i scored a beauty driving to the net to roof is short side. a goal that i am proud of because i did everything right with no hesitation. i played one of my better games but not the best because i had a glorious one timer that was robbed and missed on a tap in. my legs were feeling so sore and giving in; i find myself one step slower than my norm. i certainly enjoyed a fun summer drop in season where i started on the so called noob line, but realistically i can hang in and confidently play with the second liners. i’m excited and ready to rock for the upcoming winter season

day 1535 – supreme skating

first runs on ice with my new supremes and they felt immensely better. hockey is much better when the skates don’t hurt me to the point where i can’t even lace them up and choose to resort to old skates. all signs points the right direction after having played two games,  but will evaluate after a few more. even with a chiro visit in the morning, that wrist is still seriously bothering me. taping it up gives it support and helps restrict movement, but without a wrist mobility, my pass and shot game is compromised

day 1527 – slopitch team

aside from chasing a pitch first at bat, i settled down and had myself a very strong game. played a good hard game and ran the bases hard. my offense went three for four, made solid contact, got a rbis, and beat out some throws. there was lots of action at first base this game and even i surprised myself with all the catches and shags. i quite like it at first base, but also like using my speed to track down balls. i’m rounding out to be a good utility player that can fit multiple positions. i hope to try my hand at shortstop one day 

day 1508 – dodgeballers unite


tournament of champions is not just any dodgeball tournament. of course there’s vdl, rdl, cdl, sdl, but it’s super cool to see teams from calgary, edmonton, toronto, victoria, seattle. through the round robin, my team was in the middle of the pack of the open division. we played well in the playoffs and went further than expected. we fell behind two games in two series, only to come back and win it. i made some good catches and snipes but my best came with the clutch kill to avoid a fifth game showdown and push the team into next round

day 1478 – obyf social

another casual but always entertaining obyf end of season party. play as a team on the court, every one for themselves when playing exploding kittens. before we know it, the eight of us have been together for eight seasons going on nine. it’s amazing how obyf has developed into an iconic wednesday team. playing with this bunch has been so rewarding because we’ve never had a bad season no matter where the standings put us. we’ll be taking another run for another title
