day 2234 – harrison weekend

booked it out to harrison hot springs after killarney. this the largest hotel suite i’ve ever seen and the place the shower squad is staying at for jax’s stag part one. this place was chosen for its full kitchenette so we could have a taco night. we stayed up plenty late playing tons of drinking card games. i never expected that we’ll get much sleep tonight, but i just don’t want a hangover tomorrow

day 2233 – flip talks

during the late night dinner with the crew, had a bit of a truth moment when the topic of competition came up. deep down i know i want to compete, but being removed from the competition field for quite some time is a big obstacle. i know for me to make a comeback, i put a lot of pressure on myself to only compete when i’m confident i can do well; i just want to ensure i’m at my best. but as of right now so many factors are standing in my way and instilling so many doubts. for one, my foot is a problem because it’s not letting me have my preferred techniques. i can’t work on my roundoff combos and i avoid kicking combos whenever possible

day 2161 – smoked salmon pinwheel

the best thing about coming home late is still having homemade food by my mom. these smoked salmon tortilla wrapped pinwheels taste is unmatched because it’s made with so much care. no matter what time of the day, my mom will gladly prepare food for me and make sure i don’t starve. i played up a big appetite after returning home from my sports activities and ate all of that

day 2156 – shower squad

homemade wings, pizza and charcuteries board to go with tnt bought matcha popiscles for the shower squad. we had lots of catching up to do after not having hung out for over four weeks. we ate and talked, ate some more and talked some more before playing several rounds of taboo. the night didn’t end until 1:30am because we had so much to do talk about. this was a good night and wish it would happen more often

day 2143 – short day

it was an unexpectedly short saturday compared to any of my normal. i woke up for a chiropractor appointment, taught taekwondo classes, had dinner with parents and passed out before 9pm. i couldn’t even stay awake sitting, so i had to bail on hockey last minute which i felt really bad about. i guess the combination of jetlag, crazy late friday night, early saturday morning and a tiring solo teaching shift got the best of me

day 2142 – party in downtown

i was tired coming back from lengthy vacation and everything that happened at work. although i showed up fashionably late, it’s still important that i make an appearance at a birthday party. saw everyone from squirtle whom i haven’t seen for almost a month, had a drink and left charles bar extremely tired. i didn’t get home until 3am, i can’t imagine waking up for my appointment tomorrow morning

day 2108 – k fever

finally got my antibiotics even though i’m sure it hasn’t kicked in yet. wasn’t sure if i was up for late night karaoke but went anyways because i wasn’t about to be called out on bailing again. i generally don’t like the mic in my hands so i’m glad some of the guys like holding onto it. i am content jamming without the mic. i didn’t know any of the rap songs, but i was happy to just listen in. i was feeling quite fatigued by the end and was so ready to pass out the minute i got home
