day 2217 – nothing left

i’m feeling upset and beat because it’s crunch time and i can’t seem to land anything, not even my basic back tuck. the test is in a matter of days and my x-out feels like it’s fallen apart. it’s not a required board breaking, but i have been yearning to do this and if i was only going to take the fourth dan test once in my life, i better make it be something i’ll remember. i wanted to be proud of what i did and not just do the bare minimum. at this rate, i’m not sure if it’s going to happen

day 2110 – staying home

didn’t really celebrate mother’s day other than sending a whatsapp message to my mother who’s in hong kong spending it with her mother which i’m sure is very special for both of them. i didn’t feel like going out or doing much at all. it’s not like i could have gone to the gym to lift anyways. i was content to stay home and spent the afternoon watching an epic raptors game seven win. it’s great to see the raptors keep their playoff run alive

day 1354 – vaporsĀ 

it’s been months since i last splurged on something for myself but this week i went all in. long overdue for a new pair since my current pair wasn’t the right fit which probably caused the growing bone pain. these new jets are baked, sharpened and ready to go, the only question is am i ready to go. i was excited to be skating with these vapors for the very first time but this wasn’t quite enough to lift my mood. i couldn’t get into the game at all after being bummed out with some work conflicts all morning

day 1071 – sky watcher

woke up early to catch some wimbledon action and federer didn’t disappoint; an amazing two set down comeback gets him a spot in the semifinals. i didn’t feel up to par at training tonight which really brought me down. i can only blame myself because i know i made a bad judgement call prior to and i can’t let that happen again. spectating some flag football action under the white wispy clouds and ending the night with mo eased my mind a tad

day 902 – blackberry

image

thought i would get away from my regular flavours and try some new flavours this time. blackberry was a bad choice, i didn’t expect it to taste horrible but i guess i didn’t know what to expect. i hope the other flavours in this batch taste better. feeling strange today, almost a little down for no particular reason, i skipped out on my original evening plans and just went to the gym instead

day 797 – trying to train

image

attempting to train tonight even though my body just isn’t feeling it but got to try anyways. the long battle of my cold continues well into the second week, it just doesn’t want to leave me alone and let me live regularly. i hate feeling like this, but i also hate missing trainings, practices and games even more. weather isn’t helping at all with the change of temperature and earlier night falls.

day 796 – slow moving

image

feels like a perfect sunday wasted. the sun is shining for once and all i did was teach in the morning and attend a marcom meeting in the afternoon. opted to skip out on gym as plannedĀ and not actively enjoying the rare sunshine we will hardly get in next few months. i hope the lethargic feeling goes away soon cause i can’t afford to be an antisocial couch potato
