day 2115 – housewarmers

a house warmer that started off normal with takeout chinese dinner, usual cup games, and board games; my team lost in flip cup but we whooped butts as undefeated champs in beer pong. then ended with pullup and arm wrestling challenges. i’m surprised i faired well taking some by surprise and putting up a fight for ones i didn’t think i’d stand a chance. i can be confident in my right, but the same cannot be said for my left arm as there’s a big discrepancy over the years

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 1451 – sandlot sub

a light drizzly day isn’t going to stop a softball game so here i am playing another game with the sandlots. it was a close game each inning, but taking a win from a tier b team is pretty cool. rotated between second base and back catching. it’s fun behind the plate when there’s good pitching; the ump also kept things interesting. i consider getting on base twice quite am accomplishment playing against above our tier

day 1239 – mail bundle

came home to this bundle delivered to my front door which could only mean it came from the lone member that currently lives in hong kong. this is our fourth year of secret santa with the long standing underconstruction. i’m very excited but i’m threatened i mustn’t open it until i have witnesses in attendance. i can’t wait to open my gift during our christmas party and only wish next year the whole crew can be together in vancouver

day 1215 – obwf playoff

we weren’t expecting to make it into tier 1 playoffs, but i guess we’ve proven ourselves enough this season to hang with the top teams. the outcome was the least of our worries; more importantly, we played as a team and gave them a run for their money. i have played with this team for seven seasons now and i have enjoyed every single one. i never want to leave this team but i might have to take a leave of absence from this team for season 23 as priorities for school come first

day 963 – arcade style

image

day off with some arcade games and cue fun to take my mind off the many stresses i am dealing with. life has been far from easy as of late, but all the times we spent together has made up for it. i can’t express how much it has meant to me to have someone stand by me and be so supportive no matter what. i had a great time just gaming away and putting my reflexes, power and hand eye coordination to the test. i must admit setting a highscore for power punching was pretty cool too

day 832 – power grid

image

playing some power grid after accomplishing a tough workout is the way to go. it’s a great bonding activity where we chilled a little, chatted a little and played a little. i haven’t played board games in ages so i haven’t heard of any of the games they had to offer but i am willing to learn all. my first crack at playing this game so just learning the games and strategies as we go. it’s funny my arms are so tired that i could barely control my hands to hold my chips and maneuver my pieces
