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

day 1918 – venom pumpkin

my team’s jack-o-lantern submission, the venom, came second in pumpkin carving contest. dressing up to work today is obligatory because this office takes halloween very seriously. i didn’t put a lot of thought into planning my costume but pulled out a last minute burglar outfit. a whole afternoon of halloween extravaganza with food, contests, games and pumpkins. it was actually quite tiring and maybe more tiring than actually working

day 1712 – most improved


wrapped up vachl season with a loss, a game which we could have taken with the team’s build. regardless of the scoreboard, it was made fun by the good bunch i’m surrounded by. won myself a drawstring bag being handed the most improved player award. it’s been a a weird season for me having spent much time on the disabled list after a broken thumb, but came back strong to finish the season. hung out with some teammates to catch part of daniel and henrik’s final canucks game ever and then back on the ice for civil war opener. my legs are dead tired from too much action

day 1604 – obyf party

potluck bonder for yet another obyf season, eight to be exact. bring your own drinks parties really get out of hand when everyone brings their stash and ends up with a ridiculous amount on the table. enjoyed my night chilling with this gang over food and drinks. even when out of dodgeball setting, dodgeball ends up to be a part our party; what a bunch of dodgeball addicts. we laid out how our season went and savored the winning moment

day 1557 – 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. it’s not a good feeling to always never have the support of the closest ones. i miss the times when i could be out way past midnight and actually have a night life

day 1547 Рlorraine 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 1493 – 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
