day 1507 – working slave


this fifty nine hour work week makes me i more like a working slave. i was pressured into taking an extra teaching shift that i was reluctant to take. i didn’t want to work a thirteen hour breakless shift on a friday but that’s what it came to be. sifu made me very uncomfortable with all the things he’s forcing upon me; he expects me to take the roles of school poomsae coach and the team bc poomsae coach which comes with added certifications i must first complete. thinking of the increased regular training and time commitment stresses me out, as if i don’t have enough on my plate already

day 1321 – exec lineup

execs delivering announcements before commencing with week seven play. even though it’s spring break for schools, dodgeball doesn’t stop. i cannot imagine how fast the season has gone by and pubnight is this weekend. it was fun tonight running between the courts of tier 1 and tier 3. i kept my warmup sweater on and refused to take off no matter how hot and sweaty to avoid any explanations

day 825 – stupid train

i swear i was stuck here for ten plus minutes waiting for this long ass train to cross. quite possibly one of the most boring ten minutes of my life watching it slowly make its way from right to left but there’s nothing i could do about it. at some point i got so impatient i put my car into park and even tempted to turn off my engine. at least i had a very active and fun filled night with gym followed by a solid hour and a half of dodgeball. that’s two straight days being physically active but i am expecting to be mighty sore tomorrow

day 701 – oh canada

image

canada day was exactly opposite of how a statutory holiday should be like; not only am i at work but i even worked overtime. it was a long and exhausting day with no shortage of frustrations and surprises throughout. so much effort, time, preparation, sweat and anger has been put in order to make this inter school competition possible, not only on the front end but also on the back end behind the scenes. on the bright side, today i got to see all my students put forth their efforts , many of which made great improvements. but man, was i ever tired at the end of the day and not many ounces of energy left in me

day 45 – just tkd

spent pretty much my entire day doing on my feet at taekwondo one way or another. teaching several classes in the afternoon, then attending final rehearsal and managing my groups at another in the evening. but so many students and groups to take care of, a number of us have yet to practice our own programs
