day 2589 – storage solutions

continuing with my productive thursday routine by waking up early to model garage gym weight storage solutions, buy lumber, supervise a workout and shop for groceries all before noon. i’m really excited and can’t wait to pick up the bumper plates i ordered back in july. expecting that the worst of covid has yet to hit since so many things are resuming after labor day weekend

day 2485 – rogue sponsored

one of my quarantine project was to build a squat rack that stands out from the rest of the diy’s. though it’s only about ninety percent complete, i’m really happy with how it’s turning out. it looks sick and everything i had imagined in my head. the only downfall of the rack is certain parts of the wood can chip easily simply because it’s exposed to heavy contact. it’s been a fun experience full of learning, from designing to modeling to woodworking to constructing to spray painting. along the topic of fitness, i made a decision to start my bubble tea ban today because i’m starting a sixty day cut. during this time i’ll eat clean and be disciplined with my intake

day 2433 – home project

it’s been over a week since i last touched sketchup so thought it would good to take on a new personal project. not only will it satisfy my simulation craving, it’ll also allow me to keep up with my sketchup skills while passing time. after modeling my house, i would like to remodel it to make belief that i could renovate it the way i like it to be. if this turns out well, it could also be portfolio worthy

day 2280 – home arrest

the continuation of no work, no driving and little walking basically means i’m under house arrest. i was advised to put on the boot as precautions until it’s confirmed nothing is fractured or broken. i feel utterly useless right now when everything is delivered to me. i fail to see the positives in this situation, but i’m grateful for those taking care of me. i tried really hard to turn my attention to watching some tvb drama and working on my make belief model home

day 2277 – girl can dream

a design concept i’ve stayed up many late nights thinking and working on this model. i’ve really taken this concept to heart hoping one day i could own a space like this and run my own business. i imagined a space reasonably sized, but with all the necessary equipment arranged in what i deem as the most ideal layout. a space i own could never go without a personal gym space. i wonder if and when this could become a reality. i understand for this to happen, a lot of steps and obstacles must be taken, but i’ll keep dreaming in the meantime

day 2071 – 3d prints

work lately has been a total drag, i don’t look forward to going into the office at all. many mornings i hear the sound of my alarm and have no urgency to get up for work. i think the change in my scope of work and responsibility no longer makes me interested and satisfied. helping test out the 3d printer today was a way to pull me out of the boring tasks i’m currently working on

day 1761 – bmw museum

parents have landed on vancouver ground and are back home after their europe tour. my mom complained there was nothing good to eat in europe; i can imagine how much her asian taste buds missed asian food. they brought back many things including magnets, clothes, shoes, liquor chocolate and car exhibit items. they remembered to bring back a model z4 for me to bridge the gap while i currently can’t afford my dream car yet. i guess i can still have my z4 model to dream about. the model-sized z4 will turn into the real deal one day

day 1223 – final final

img_20200204_2140458517577692364587117.jpgi’ve had enough of this final project in the past seventy two hour; uploading this bad boy for submission because it is as done as it will ever get and i’ve stared at this enough with little progress. now it is time to turn my attention to the final exam that’s also tomorrow. i’m going to appreciate sleep so much more after tomorrow. the minute i’m home on wednesday, i intend on doing nothing but watch drama and sleep

day 1222 – plug away

image

meeting at coffee shop to actually do some work on building my library project. with two days before the deadline, it’s a must to get down to business and be productive. i regretfully procrastinated again and have tons and left myself with no choice but to work until 2am to get as much as i can done since i won’t have time to do so tomorrow. i don’t know why i always make it so hard on myself, that’s something i must work on

day 724 – hardware department

image

shopping was made different today, in a completely different department than the usual. at rona looking for model making supplies because it’s model making time. rarely do i step foot in a home hardware store, but i tried to walk in there like i knew exactly what i needed but in reality i had no idea what i am looking for. maybe i was able to fool some people because i got no assistance
