day 2103 – escape room

slept until 1pm because saturday night shenanigans didn’t end until 5am. continuing my crazy birthday weekend with flightclub family that started with earl’s happy hour, then escape room puzzle solving and ended with an open gym session. it was great both the groups solved the mystery and escape our respective rooms. the giant birthday back tuck circle during open gym was definitely a bonus that capped it all off. i’m grateful so many people in my life wanted to hangout and celebrate my birthday with me

day 2026 – open practice

squirtle and fishsticks merge to hold an open practice so both teams can get ready for their respective game twos. also a good time to run through defensive drills to since i’m put on defense next friday. for some odd reason, my shin pad and skate tongue was causing a havoc for my left foot. lots of ice this weekend so i’m glad there’s no powerskating during this long weekend

day 2003 – disney days

on the theme of throwbacks, i go back to my university graduation trip with highschool friends to los angeles disneyland. even though i traveled with the team to basketball tournaments, this would be my first real trip with friends that included taking a flight. the six of us had a lot of fun at at theme parks of disneyland and hollywood, and beaches of california. so  much fun we narrowly caught our flight back home from seatac airport. i consider this a treat for myself after having gone through two intensive years in ends program

day 1994 – apex the gym

for my first semi private session, i revisited everything that i did from my first session, checked on front squats, then jumped into some power cleans. since it looked fairly good after a few minor adjustments, i got the green light to go heavier. made it all the way from the fake whites to the yellow plates. the coach was very happy with the progress given the amount of time and instruction i had today. my first official olympic lifting session since my days with jae and i had forgotten how much fun this stuff is; the only type of cleaning i like to do

day 1987 – hotpotting

had a bunch of friends crash my house for hotpot because they heard i have the whole house all to myself this week. i don’t normally get a chance to host any parties simply cause i don’t have my own place. it’s my first hotpot of the cold wintery days. i’m so full from stuffing down all the food including beef, pork, assorted meat balls, fish tofu, mushrooms, daikon, and veggies. there’s a lot of cleaning up to do after stuffing our faces but fortunately there was a dishwasher within the group

day 1983 – fools on ice

the zamboni usually swoops in immediately and leaves no time for players to get off the ice after the game. being a late game, and the last game of the night, there wasn’t anyone ushering us out. the girls took our sweet time getting off the ice; decided to stay on ice and take an bunch of photos and videos. we had the whole sheet of ice to ourselvees so naturally we wanted to capture all the weird things we wouldn’t normally get to do. we had so much fun fooling around post game that we almost forgot we the boys were waiting for us

day 1967 – yankee swap

another year pass by and it comes time for our design christmas lunch and yankee swap in the boardroom. lunch was served with a combination of pasta, salad, cake and sparkling juice. we work hard all year round so it’s good to end the year off by getting the whole department together where we don’t talk about work issues. i got to know a few design people a little better over the last little while. i took home a gift very suitable for me – an organic back wrap microwaveable for both cold and heat aromatherapy. now this is a ticket to continue to go wild with my sports and activities
