day 2033 – lumber

cut some lumber with my dad to get ready for my next do it yourself project. my dad has the basic tools but not a woodworking workshop at home. it made cutting wood slightly more tedious and difficult, but still got the job done nonetheless. i still need to gather more material and go through this same process again. i’m hope this will all turn out as well as i drew it up on sketchup and cad

day 1965 – star performer

i must say getting a star performer plaque for the year was the pleasant surprise. it has been a crazy stressful year. many days i just go about my business and work my butt to make all the deadlines. it’s good to know that the hardwork and dedication to hold this fort down didn’t go unnoticed. and this year i showed up to harrison to represent the design tech team

day 1957 – seasons gifts

tis the season where christmas gifts and chocolates from students and parents start to flow in. this is the time where students and parents show their appreciation of the hard work we put in throughout the whole year. today’s surprises were a box of godiva chocolate and a starbucks gift card. the chocolates are dangerous because i have a soft spot for certain types of chocolates and will end up eating all of them by myself

day 1909 – webbing drills

stayed well after class to practice because i want my websters. it was the perfect time to drill them because i was able to receive some valuable pointers. i was drilling and drilling them into the foam pit; long enough past dinner and in time for late night matsuyama with the gang. i keep wanting to hit the open gym times, but it’s always difficult on weekdays with my early morning starts

day 1868 – vignette casegoods

checking out the crops of all the hardwork my team and i put into the best western vignette. very pleased with how everything turned out; a big sigh of relief not only because it’s completed, but completed correctly as i shoulder most of the responsibility. a little side tantrum i must release. sometimes when things turn out well, there’s no credit given. sometimes when things turn out well, there’s still complaints coming out of people

day 1841 – small gestures

i do a very thankless job where i’m always expected to do things right. it’s one that does all the work in the back end and allows others to shine. usually i don’t get called out unless something isn’t done perfectly or when something goes wrong. this is one of the rare times i do get noticed on a personal level. this card i received on my desk definitely put a smile on my face. the gift is a small gesture, but one that makes me believe i do my best to service others

day 1753 Рkorean consulate 

if i didn’t give some random reason, my shift would have been way longer than the eight to six i had. the competition was unorganized from the beginning when they failed to setup the ticket table. it was so draining, i mainly had pockys and chocopies for lunch. nonetheless, it went well for most of my students. i’m very pleased with the hard work they put into this competition and making the improvements they did. stepping out onto the mats for the first time is daunting, i know far too well. seeing all my students improve makes itch to get back into competition myself, but somehow i held my ground
