day 1903 – continuation of seminar

enjoying my poke bowl for lunch during my second day of this seminar. it’s customized with salmon and tuna sashimi, mango, crab meat, masago, ginger, nori, shoots and topped with spicy sriracha sauce. since we got the basics down yesterday, we’re learning how to build a project and practicing how to setup according to our own preferences. i’ve been pretty intrigued and impressed with what the program can do

day 1902 – cabinet vision

day one of a three day training on cabinet. vision. the expectation was to have a full day going through dry material while being trapped in a windowless room for eight hours. that wasn’t the case and it turned out way more interesting than expected. i was originally suppose to travel to ontario for this training, but instead, manager and coo was in support and brought in a presenter. company paid training and catered lunch from chopped leaf doesn’t sound too shabby

day 1863 – wild mushroom

good thing i didn’t dare to touch or pick any of these weird looking orange mushrooms up during the hike. multiple sources have told me these wild growing fungi are poisonous in some way. who knows maybe if i touched them they would infect me or better yet mutate me into something else. just one of those life lessons you come across and gain knowledge of as you explore the world and see more of what’s outside the daily life

day 1847 – work screens

when i’m finally free from meetings and trying to get some work done and it department remotes onto my computer to play with my outlook. work is stressful day in and day out, but it’s made better when coworkers messed up with my Brain. it’s funny the topic covered in today’s emerging leader program is mainly about stress management and how to cope with it. it’s one of those things i’ll training for as i continue to grow and lead my team

day 1782 – vanishes

being exposed is the first step, learning is the second step and practicing is the next. learning about vanishes and working on those tornado kicks, eventually to link some combos together. all these drills further shows me how right dominant i have become; but then again, how often is anyone ambidextrous in tricking? going to classes has been really fun with a welcoming bunch and patient instructors. the next step is having the time and confidence to go to open gyms. what a workout today; i was already sweating as i sit and stretch

day 1731 – project overload

it’s design reshuffle day and coordinated much of the move, but i was also the culprit who stalled the whole process. essentially everyone was waiting for me to move out of my workstation before they can move in, but i was adamant of replying four nasty emails. the bombardment of emails overnight came from someone who had no business in minding my projects; she’s not my manager and i need not report to her. she’s been slowly working at some leads and managed to break two. she’s turned her attention to me but has yet to find a way to unravel me. some say i’m really good with keeping my poker face and not getting to me has quite frustrated her. i felt the need to reply all four of them in a way to show she’s got nothing on me. i stand up for not only myself, but for the rest of my design team 

day 1720 – wings night

my first full game slotted at defense and it was nerve-wracking but lots of fun. i wasn’t confident with my backward skating and defensive positioning so i was worried i’d let the team down. i trusted that i had decent hockey iq so i was in position most of the time and lucky to have my d-partner when i wasn’t. i must admit it was quite fun to play on the back end; i wouldn’t mind playing there once in a while just to get a different perspective of the game and learn something new. the squad went crazy after the game and ordered platters of eighty wings and nachos
