day 1904 – pastimes

one of my long term past time is training for poomsae competitions. though it’s over a year since i stepped on the big stage, i still spend a great deal of time coaching competition. there were times when thought i was done with taekwondo, but every time i try to step away i somehow get pulled back in. the debate is do i still have one last one in me. after my mentor and friends departed, i no longer have as much drive as a competitor to shoulder all the responsibilities

day 917 – cleaning

image

i hate paperwork, and truly believe i am not meant to for this type of task. these were due for year end, but still have not yet figured out the boss’ ever changing standards. to further delay the task, i did some mild cleaning of my room and trunk today and finally cleared out some bags out of my closet. any kind of distraction is good distraction so i can continue to avoid the neverending paperwork. i guess i still found a way to be productive, but those paperwork will have to wait another day

day 723 – why won’t you stop

image

is nineteen images in one day really necessary? why must you spam me with all these images that i am not keen on reading, for the third time. would much rather be spending my time doing many other things than reading the same old things over and over again, all of the same content but from different sources. my whatsapp is not meant for this, nor is my email for this matter

hungry executives celebrating the completion of season 18 at water kitchen in gastown. vdl’s human resources surprised us all with christmas presents, as each of us was rewarded with a pair of the newest vdl apparel personalized with our own initials. must admit i am relieved that we are at the season’s end because this season has¬†been really stressful balancing out all my commitments and tasks, i really need the extra time just to get away from my neverending commitments

twenties series: [eight] pace

it may sound strange coming from a person whose life runs at the speed similar to the highway traffic where park zones do not exist. i am just at a point in my life where all my commitments and deadlines are happening all at once, and no matter how fast i push myself, i can never fit everything into a my twenty four hour span. i hate to say that all my commitments may not even fit even if i was granted an additional two hours each day. i drive a bmw with a relatively powerful engine, if i was given a race caliber car, it would be scary scene to see how fast my life moves at when i step on that gas pedal. in the past month, i have been running on a full load and tight schedule based on an average of five hours of sleep per night. its a miracle that i am still functioning after several weeks but i am uncertain how long i will be able to hold up. some things has got to change or i won’t be able to keep up with this hectic and crazy lifestyle. with that said, life is not a race to the finish line, learn to slow it down and pace yourself. you will be glad you did because there are many rewards at every stage of life and chances are you may miss it if you speed through everything

day 414 – working away

image

working on catching up with all my school, work, personal stuff and everything in between. my to do list is endlessly long and can’t imagine the list getting any shorter as this year wears on. need to work on using my time more wisely and relying less on procrastination or else i will forever be behind. this is just the beginning of a very busy season, please let me get through¬†without any breakdowns

day 333 – hot summer day

image

a green tea frappuccino to quench my thirst on a hot summer day filled with taekwondo. vanquishing the last of my five-hour weekend that is coming to an end just as it started. definitely need more down time before i begin another week of neverending work and practice. work hard play hard doesn’t apply when theres no time leftover for play. only a matter of time before my i hit the wall from this inhumane schedule
