day 1647 – karaoke party

the start of saturday morning shifts has begun so i’ll be working nine straight hours on saturdays between two jobs. i wonder how long i will last with sixty four hour work weeks before i burn out. i was tired after the two shifts but doesn’t change my plans for an impromptu karaoke and board games night. i had a good night chilling with peeps. it was the fun i used to have; the good company kept from thinking why i’m still feeling solo all the time. i miss the times when i could be out way past midnight and actually have a night life

day 1571 – pitch and play

after a full day of round robin, back on the diamond pumped for softball playoffs. no one expected us to last long in the playoffs, but we made a case for ourselves making it deep into the playoffs. playing five games in nine hours one break in between was tiring, but i played some of my best games as the day wore on and so did my teammates. we played our way up to semi finals and potentially could have been finalists. props to everyone who came out to play. win or lose, i’m proud of the team for finishing the season strong after such a fun season. that tan just got a whole lot darker after being on the field all day

day 1555 – victim 

i had a lot of trouble sleeping tonight. what makes me such a good victim for people to hurt and take advantage of. i guess my feelings can be swept aside, guess promises can be broken, guess what i like or don’t like doesn’t matter anyways. at first i didn’t think i was fat but being repeatedly called that makes me believe i am indeed fat and repeatedly makes me skip meals. even after long days i force myself through the fatigue to come here simply cause i can’t eat unless i exercise. today is one of those days where i’m feeling completely burned out from a fifty eight hour work week but still dragged myself to workout because my dinner is not yet earned

day 1232 – work work work

back into the office at half past seven ready to work. after tutoring and a long fulfilling workout, i’m finally back home half past nine for a quick bite before doing some graphics work. no easing back in on this super long day. i have yet to get around to housekeeping stuff, but at least i’m over the hump. even though we didn’t spend any time together today, we both recognize and value the importance of today

day 1172 – referee debut

going to master cup with with the identity of a referee instead of a competitor or coach. first time officiating provincial sparring matches and official blackbelt poomsae divisions; definitely an eye opener. crazy long day with ten straight hours of taekwondo today. i definitely enjoyed judging the official blackbelt as opposed to being centre referee for sparring. i needed tying tie tutorials first thing in the morning as i haven’t worn a tie since hong kong elementary school days

day 619 – tkd marathon

just got home from friday night training and will be back for saturday morning poomsae training in roughly six hours. i might as well have a sleep over there to get myself more snooze time because i am schedule to train, teach, then train again for a combined ten hours on the mats.i didn’t even bother bringing my uniform and belt home because i will be back in gear in no time

day 616 – pin ups

this meeting is no joke. the boardroom is cluttered with images and diagrams pinned up on the walls ready for our visioning session. wednesday always seems so hard to get through, although which days aren’t long for me nowadays?? my legs are sore so i am just watching the clock tick away and looking forward to heading home and hopefully do things that lets me stay off my feet
