day 1692 – indian wells

the amount of output yesterday got me and my body good so i decided it was a sunday worth letting my body recover a little. so many body parts are currently quite shattered so taking time off for one or maybe two days isn’t too much to ask for. even if i forced it, i would only be half assing my designated heavy leg day. instead, i spent like how most people treat sundays, relaxing and watching indian wells finals. i’m very disappointed federer lost the match, but he just wasn’t on his game from the beginning


day 1687 – book assignment 

feels like school all over again when a book was assigned for home reading. this is a suppose to be a highly recommended book by the boss who bought a few copies to circulate within the office. this is meant to be an educational piece so i’ll need to arrange for reading outside of the sixty hours i already spend working. i haven’t read books like this in years but always willing to allot some time out of my crazy schedule to make myself more successful and i’ll be doing so one page at a time 

day 1589 – ornamentation 

holiday season feels immediately bolstered when i came home to a decorated christmas tree and lots of lighting. annual house decorations are up in keeping in line with the family prerequisites. keep in mind there’s less than twenty sleeps before christmas day. it got busy all around the same time almost lost track of time passing. got to get started on the christmas gift shopping. started planning a little late this year, but december parties are beginning to roll in

day 1472 – corridor floor

third day of the contractor laying down hardwood floor. it’s coming along nicely; he’s working slowly but diligently as those curved steps on the stairs is complicated. i hope he can get more done over the weekend so i don’t have to deal with the sawdust. it’s looking quite nice but i still don’t like how the random creaking noises comes with. no matter what, i think i’ll always prefer carpet in my bedroom

day 1469 – flooring 

together with my parents, we moved all the living room furniture over the long weekend to prepare for more home renovation. came home from work and the construction guy ripped out the public area carpet on the main floor and started laying out hardwood floor at the stairway. it will very be dusty and loud over the next couple days. i’ll miss the warm fuzzy feeling of the carpet, but i’ll have to adapt to the grainy feeling

day 1464 – melting away

trying to sleep in my room is like sleeping in a sauna. i’m sweating even when sitting still with two small fans blowing beside me. sleep quality and quantity has dropped because my top floor is suffocating heat. the air quality is at its worst all summer, so bad it’s making me have constant headache for two straight days. i hope the smoke and smog gets blown away quicker so i can carry out some outdoor activities

day 1315 – roost

the morning wasn’t so bad as i worked through the fatigue to get my conference call done. it only hit me when the caffeine wore off and i clearly suffered from the afternoon crash. i went straight home and took a nap to make up some sleep. woke up but couldn’t work so i took some medicine, mulled around and went to sleep again. that’s what four hours of sleep will do. things just doesn’t slow down even after competition travels
