the best of the juniors started pouring into burnaby a few days ago and will be here this week for the biggest event in vancouver since olympic 2010. the rink i usually play hockey in is now converted into four hexagonal rings. the accreditation centre and training centre was full of big shots and young stars. never knew i could shake hands with or talk to so many masters in one day

embracing 2015

2014 had a lot of ups and downs, crazy adventures and awesome experiences but all in all, its a mediocre year. a breakthrough year from dodgeball, not only became a league executive and marcom graphics designer, but also became a tier 3 champ, tier 6 champ and came ever so close to tier 2 champ. took a step further into taekwondo competition, traveling out of town for nationals and governor’s cup, putting our school on the american radar and even bringing home some hardware. traveling experiences brought the team together, giving us teambonding experiences and adventures. at times, i got a little carried away with drinking and partying but it was part of letting a little loose. fortunate to have the opportunity to get closer with some people in my life that’s given me a new perspective in life. the downfall came with the countless injuries i suffered with nonstop and uncontrollable knee dislodges, sport threatening knee injury, unstable hip alignment, ankle sprains, concussions, blackouts, undisclosed wrist injury soon to have a mri confirmation of severity

embracing 2015 with many ambitions, new goals,  and hoping to create a lot more amazing memories with the people in my life

  • stay healthy, refrain from injuries, train well and get stronger
  • eat better, work at my weaknesses and stick with the game plan
  • taekwondo competition trek
  • spend more quality time with family
  • be more open minded and step out of my comfort zone to try new things
  • meet more people and develop a well rounded network
  • reconnect with and make time for old friends that tends to be neglected
  • pick up photography
  • continue blogging and bettering my site
  • travel to explore the world
  • stop being a workaholic and appreciate the little things in life

ready to make this the best year yet!!

day 444 – podium finish

claiming two golds and one silver from washington state cup. riding on the highs of adrenaline is the only reason i am still standing. being majorly sleep deprived after little sleep the week leading up to trip and only catching a three hour snooze the night prior to competition. proud to say it was a success and the team bc was well represented. first time going to this competition and we gained respect and turned some heads from other competitors, coaches and masters. this may be a start of something that leads to bigger things. the bonus is its my first competition after the summer of knee horrors, and everything seems to be feeling fine so i hope to put that in behind me and look forward to the good days
