day 1794 – flasherback

emerging leader meeting got me well on my way to a long weekend; a weekend i’ll actually have. i’m feeling really burnt out lately so this is a timely and much needed string of days off. while i have time to sit down, i flashed back to when i was in the best shape of my life before it all went down the drain all due to a broken thumb. it then became one of the toughest moments of my life because of all that happened and all that couldn’t happen. that’s all behind me because i learn and i grow. i think now i’m ready to train for what got me to the shape i wanted. i have my eyes set on being the fittest, healthiest and strongest i could ever be

day 1754 – movie marathon

i did absolutely nothing today except eat dumplings to go along with my movie marathon. i need days like this when i could sleep in with no alarm clock to wake me up at 6:05, no rush from work to games nor commitments. i even chose not to hit the gym because my body told me it needs the rest it deserves. this year the brand new phenomenon i’ve learnt is occasionally listening to my body instead of my always go go go response. it took me quite a while to grasp this concept

day 1705 – coffee and work


the easter long weekend continues and it has really let me shift my gears a little. i must admit not going into work throughout the weekend is a big change. homeworking at a coffee shop because month end means lots of work piling on. it feels working full time is not suffice as there’s not enough time to get them done during work hours. stationed my work and laptop at prado sipping on my customized latte. had to wrap up march with a work session and get some planning done for the month of april. it’ll be an interesting month as there’s a lot in store for april

day 1703 – cafe savoureux

dessert hopping stop number three to start the long weekend. we ordered different drinks and shared the fancy cakes. we like to get together for an afternoon tea with drinks and sweets. sitting together at the table talking out the stresses of work and relieving our minds before a three day weekend. for the first time in three months, it’s one weekend i do not have to work. though i don’t have to go into work, i still have to make time to work at my own time. it’s month end so there’s extra work to do to wrap up the march and prepare for april

day 1469 – flooring 

together with my parents, we moved all the living room furniture over the long weekend to prepare for more home renovation. came home from work and the construction guy ripped out the public area carpet on the main floor and started laying out hardwood floor at the stairway. it will very be dusty and loud over the next couple days. i’ll miss the warm fuzzy feeling of the carpet, but i’ll have to adapt to the grainy feeling

day 1292 – korean seminar 

today was a lot of learning from taekwondo to skating. i have a great learning opportunity to attend a seminar held by korean national team coach. the only hurdle is the grandmaster speaks and writes in korean. he has a wealth of knowledge to share; his teaching and training style is very different than the norm. although some of it is very deep and philosophical, it gives me a much better idea of how poomsae should be practice. i jetted immediately after to join the intermediate power skating class. the class is much faster paced; we did things i’ve never done before, but i was told i learn quickly

day 1290 – sums it up 

this pretty much sums up how i’m feeling about myself and my life lately. i can’t seem to get my stuff together and time after after i disappoint myself. got to the lowest point in a quite some time and i am in disbelief when i found out. i definitely feel undeserving of some basic privileges. the long weekend comes timely because i can take this time to regroup and find something new. i better get it together in a hurry or else it might turn out to be self harming
