throwback to london time and the europe trip i had earlier this spring. used up all my spendings and vacation time in one go so i’ll have to wait and start planning for next year’s. i can’t wait until my next extended vacation and hope that there’ll be more fun times to come. for now, i’ll have to keep saving up for some big upcoming expenses and investments

day 1880 – test drives

did some expensive window shopping this afternoon browsing around the audi showroom. though i didn’t get a chance to test drive the r8, i did get the opportunity to sit inside and imagine the thrill. i then took a a4 out for a short spin and that’s more along the line of what i can afford. looking at new cars made me realize that shadow is already nine years old and getting up there in age. as much as i want to get a new car, the timing may not be right yet

day 1579 – sunday workday

it started off having a laid back sunday morning before getting into work. good that i don’t have a 7:30am start on sunday as well so i could sleep in a little after a late night of partying. had no urgency to sleep after a night like this, but once in a while is okay. worked another blackbelt test and the rest of my time spent completing a bunch of modules. banking these extra hours hopefully to pay off and gets accredited for in the future

day 1526 – double yolk

mom cooked lots of food for dinner and bought mooncake for dessert to celebrate mid autumn festival with the family. it gets harder and harder to have a full family dinner because my schedule is just so packed. i’m glad they understand that i am working hard and grinding every single day. they know i’m hardworking trying to establish a better future but they’re always concerned i don’t eat. i’ll just make the most of the special dinners we get together. i guess i can allow myself to have meals and desserts this once in a while. i hate being called fat, but maybe i’ll just have to accept it’s the truth and that i’m getting fat

day 1415 Рventuresome 

hustling hard everyday just to fulfill vancouver’s living standards. trying to hustle harder to hunt down my future unit in the rising economy. at the end of each long work intensive day, i tell myself i’m going to get rewarded in the end – somehow, someway. in the meantime, the little periodic getaways are the highlights i look forward to; well earned time off to relax. i will be back for more adventures after visiting places i’ve always wanted to visit. one day, i’ll get the hawaiian or beachy trip that i’ve always wanted

day 1150 – megalopolis

the turnover rate at metropolis is so high, i don’t recognize a handful of the stores anymore. intended on doing some window shopping but ended up taking some goods home with me. i’m glad i found something i liked and was able to buy without feeling too guilty. i was feeling crummy so i spent the evening deep in thought about many things both current and for the future. after some thought, i feel like better and brighter days are ahead, i just have to keep my head up and keep going

day 849 – big decisions

image

i think i made one of the biggest decision since my existence but i also think it’s a necessary one. i’ve been in limbo for quite some time but i kept quiet and tried to hide everything inside. today, i took a huge leap of faith and let go of something i really should have let go long ago, but was afraid to do so. i sat at starbucks to recollect myself because i wasn’t sure if i was aware what just happened. now it’s time to collect my thoughts and think about the steps i need to take moving forward. this was an all important decision and i believe it’s the right one because without it, i would continue to be a robot assuming my regular routine. this really forces me to focus on what i really needed to do – think about what’s best for me
