day 2228 – self care sundays

hardly ever spend time on my skin care, but figured my lazy sunday is the perfect time to do it. the secret of staying twenty four is not doing anything for it and then treating it with the once in a blue moon face mask. i also got around to washing my car and washing my hockey gear, both of which was in dire need of cleaning. it’s cloudy and drizzly, hope it air dries in time before my next game

day 1496 – summer cleaning

collecting all my hockey gear that i used to take over the porch this weekend. people say their water turns murky black after soaking their gear; mine didn’t change colour so i’m not sure if i did it right. regardless, it was the small window of offseason; i now have clean gear to use in anticipation of a busy season of hockey. i find labour day weekend is all about cleaning and catch up work, as if i was getting ready to go back to school

day 796 – slow moving

feels like a perfect sunday wasted. the sun is shining for once and all i did was teach in the morning and attend a marcom meeting in the afternoon. opted to skip out on gym as planned and not actively enjoying the rare sunshine we will hardly get in next few months. i hope the lethargic feeling goes away soon cause i can’t afford to be an antisocial couch potato

resolution series: [thirteen] independence

at times like this when my parents are travelling around the world, i realize how much they have to do on a daily basis. even the most basic things like cooking meals, doing laundry, washing dishes, turning off lights, and taking out garbage. they take care of majority of all that, making mine and my brother’s life less stressful. though none of that those duties are difficult, they are very time consuming. the act of preparing, cooking and then washing the dishes is a tedious process and before i know it, an hour as passed by. as i grow older, i come to understand how precious they are and how dependent i have become. this is definitely the time to learn how to be more independent so to relieve my parents of their burden. slowly getting better at it, and good knowing that i won’t starve to death or run out of clean clothes to wear while they are away. going through the learning process of supporting myself physically, emotionally and financially. learning that earning money is hard but saving is even more difficult. understanding that success doesn’t come overnight and everything that contributes to future success requires utmost commitment. at a certain point, i won’t have anyone to lean on but myself. only when i can manage all that can i stand alone. there comes a time when i need to give back because that’s the least i could do in return
