day 2390 – donnie yen

family day statutory holiday started with a strong session at apex, coupled with a family lunch and drama time, and finished with a laid back enter the fat dragon movie starring donny yen. no misses on my clean wave and topped out at fifty nine kilos, which is only two kilos shy of my personal best. i got a taste of what seventy five kilo front rack feels like from jerk dips. though it sounds like a big jump, i handled it well and think i could go up next time i do the same workout. seventh week without snatches; i do worry i won’t remember how to snatch when my shoulder is ready to return

day 2376 – not deserving

i felt like crap after training because i simply couldn’t replicate and connect my cartwheel with anything going backwards. i wanted help but no chance because he’s too focused helping one person. left the gym disappointed beating myself up. i didn’t deserve to eat so i went straight home so i wouldn’t tear up in front of people. whenever i don’t do what i need to, i would punish myself with no food because eating needs to be earned

day 2369 – federer comeback

it was pretty hard to watch this match as it wore on; probably one of the hardest federer matches i’ve ever watch him play. i could see federer’s movements are compromised and i know he was feeling lots of discomfort but still playing relentlessly until the end. his amazing efforts coming back to win a five setter. i would sacrifice my sleep any day to watch his play. it was the first time i went live on instagram so a friend without cable could watch the end of the match

day 2341 – multi screen

this is my holiday season, the break i’m entitled to just be a sloth. however, there are some unfinished business at work that needs to be done. ever since i came across this edition of prince of tennis, i have been crazily addicted. i’m binging this series day and night, and staying up until 3am hoping to finish it before my holidays are over. meanwhile, though my work is visibly there on the other screen, i’m doing nothing to it

day 2315 – christmas tree top

once last week of november hits, everyone was putting up their christmas trees. i was a little behind but my christmas tree is finally up in my living room piled with decorations and lights. my family typically decorates all over the interior of the house, but the past two years we’ve lessened because taking it down is not as fun. this month’s electric bills will be higher than other months

day 2302 – pajama shift

the luxury of working from home is i can wake up five minutes before and work in my pajamas. it’s a bit challenging working with one laptop-sized scree as opposed to two large monitors, but i’ve kept up. it’s been kind of good working remotely because i find my productivity level actually goes up. i also didn’t feel detached because i could use microsoft team to chat with friends within the office. the only drawback is having technical difficulties trying to connect my laptop to a conference call

day 2299 – home working

too sick and contagious to be going into the office so i finally got approval for a remote laptop. i could very well not be working and resting would do me good, but there’s just way too many rushed deadlines. it’s a smarter and safer option for the company because who knows how many people i could infect if i went in. with the amount of coughing fits i have, i was not in the condition to even be outside. all the monitors on my desk kind of makes it look like a security office
