day 1823 – team barbecue

there’s a few flakes but the team barbecue turnout wasn’t too shabby. there was a lot of drinking involved considering the rest of the guys are playing a game afterwards. i wouldn’t be in on any of the drinking games if i was healthy enough to play. i’m very disappointed i have to sit out, especially when i was ramping up my hot goals streak. the duration is indefinite until i get another assessment. i’m on a short leash so i could be off to the emergency barring any symptoms. i’m praying it’s nothing serious, but i’m also starting to worry more and more

day 1306 – exec socialĀ 

a vdl event that gathers execs so those who don’t do league ops nor play every night gets a chance to hangout. i am usually unable to make it out to these events, but i had a gap before working at blackbelt test. taking over most of steamworks eating and socializing while getting good laughs playing board games. the company was good but the food was horrible; i ended up eating my first hotdog since korean festival two summers ago. a laid back afternoon that momentarily got my mind off taekwondo where i was low key stressing out for my competition

day 843 – formal outfit

my outfit of the day going to the all important vdl 10 years celebration. this is a night i will remember because i am sober for the duration of the social. getting to see all the old faces who came before my time and helped guide this league into what it is ten years later. the growth of this league is amazing and it was only made possible because this committed group of people came together to build a community. i am truly happy to be a part of the building team because vdl has given me so much in return

day 576 – baby shower

everyone chipped in for a big baby shower present and an early farewell party. so much food to be had during the potluck party i consumed too much and feel way too bloated to stay awake. i am sure i am not the only one that feels sluggish and unproductive for the rest of afternoon. the decoration balls are impressively made from raw tissue paper through following some tutorials. the power of youtube videos are amazing
