day 2257 – monday off

compressed work week saving me by letting me sleep in like no other. also blessed to have the day off to take my mom out for birthday lunch. basically woke up at 11am, then met up with my parents near both their offices to enjoy some beef noodles. stopped by the gym to stretch, roll and use the sauna before heading out to flightclub. had a lot of fun after hours training, getting more back handspring reps in. hopefully all these reps will pay off sooner rather than later. i opted not to join the crew for dinner because i had some cake errands to run before the stores closed

day 1724 Рsunrun package 

being handed my green bib and corporate team tech shirts today made it apparent that the sunrun is only days away. this will be my third time doing the biggest run in vancouver and first time in the green division. i had pretty high expectations for this run but i’m not sure what to expect after taking an ill-advised dive earlier this week. all i can do is tape up my knee and hope that i can finish like i had set out to do. all i’m asking for is to keep pushing as long as my tape job holds up my knee together 

day 1577 – gambler

what a coincidence to be walking around the autowest showroom during black friday. must be a joke trying to sell this limited edition gunmental matte grey sniper on a black friday. it definitely got my full attention and drooling as a made a few circles. i took a big gamble today that i probably shouldn’t have. i’ll have to keep a close tab on it and hope that i’ll find signs that it’s just a false alarm. chances are i’ll have to make a pit stop at hand surgeon clinic if that isn’t falsified

day 1495 – september stroll

whenever labour day weekend rolls around, i feel the need to get some the last of vitamin d before rain hits. good thing it’s still a hot day so i spent it with a stroll at fisherman’s wharf. the heat wave was strong today as with this summer season, but i’m not complaining. a change up was welcomed, maybe there’s hope that things will get better. illusion or not, my heart will soon tell it’s genuine. i’ll let it be the judge to see if it can be mended

day 1428 Рrender frenzy 

speed testing coworker’s crazy ten thousand dollar computer towers with some sketchup vray renders while he’s on vacation. this forty eight cpu tower is a monster compared to my eight cpu. i’ll be mulling around his workstation and putting those extra cpus to good use before he’s back. with this, there’s hope i’ll be able to finish the renders stacy garcia wanted

day 1379 – icbc rehab

the bad just got worse and now i’m put on a long chiro rehab program through icbc. the quality of life is just not there at the moment and i really want to give up. there’s no comfortable position between sitting, standing and laying down; basic mobility is compromised to the point where the pain keeps me from sleeping. it’s been a horrid week sleep deprived, not being able to go to gym, not playing sports like normal, not able to be myself. it’s asking for too much from me when i have reduce some of my physical activities and even hold off in some cases. i try not appear in pain but even staying strong has its limits and i’ve reached it. i don’t know if restricting all my sports is easier or death

day 1256 – new term

not having put on a taekwondo uniform for several weeks is eerily long but the fact that it didn’t bother me which might not be a good sign. hopefully it’s just the long break and not lost passion for taekwondo or competition itself. i am back on the mat and had a decent first day of killarney winter term. bringing in another new instructor will put more load on me, but at least i’ve finally let go of sunday because working seven days a week is brutal
