didn’t really celebrate mother’s day other than sending a whatsapp message to my mother who’s in hong kong spending it with her mother which i’m sure is very special for both of them. i didn’t feel like going out or doing much at all. it’s not like i could have gone to the gym to lift anyways. i was content to stay home and spent the afternoon watching an epic raptors game seven win. it’s great to see the raptors keep their playoff run alive
this getaway was meant to be everything but jam-packed and hectic. some of us just wanted to spend the afternoon relaxing on the balcony to soak in the long lost vitamin d. we laid on the balcony for hours chatting and joking our way through the day. it was good to have some team bonding time away from the rink. we definitely had a good laugh with the many jokes made and shots fired. this is a big change for me because i would never have down time like this back home. for this reason, i will take every opportunity this weekend to be the biggest sloth i can be
i need to find some way to keep myself motivated at work. too many things are happening around the office, all that doesn’t make any sense from a business standpoint. i can’t wait for the long weekend so i don’t have to deal with the changes that just keeps getting worse one after another. on the bright side, i’m just two days away from the squirtle team getaway to vancouver island. we don’t have much planned, but whatever it is will be better than what it is now
no point in staying at work when my eyes wouldn’t stay open even under the influence of caffeine. from past experience, the jetlag usually hits me hardest on the second day. everyone told me to set an alarm clock, which i did. i went home intending to take a short nap, but i passed out for four hours only to notice my parents were already eating dinner. good luck trying to fall asleep tonight
i lost track of how many times i pressed the snooze button, but i slept in until my poor body was ready to make any type of movement. my lazy day off was mostly spent with my parents shopping for both furniture and groceries. we came to a decision and laid down three and a half grand for a set of leather sofa. i really could have played another hockey game, but realistically i need to be a sloth so my legs could rest. it’s nice to be able to help my parents out; something i miss doing for my parents
attempting to train tonight even though my body just isn’t feeling it but got to try anyways. the long battle of my cold continues well into the second week, it just doesn’t want to leave me alone and let me live regularly. i hate feeling like this, but i also hate missing trainings, practices and games even more. weather isn’t helping at all with the change of temperature and earlier night falls.
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
