day 1759 – homework latteĀ 

this evening is all about homeworking while holding onto my cup of latte. i could be having fun on friday night, but i chose to do some catch up work at forty ninth parallel. there’s never enough time for all the things i must get done and the extra stress is noticeably getting to me this week. two more sleeps of home alone before my family fly back from their europe trip. it sure seems like they’re having a good time, but my mom still checks in to make sure i’m doing okay

my parents are back this evening meaning final day of meal prepping. i’m proud of myself because i’m tired as ever but already in at work at 7:30am even after getting off school at 10:30pm yesterday night. also, i have mostly been able to feed myself during the time my parents were away. my self-made lunch boxes are looking better and better each time my parents go on vacation. but one thing i need to do much better on is getting enough sleep

day 1139 – parent’s chauffeur

parents flew home from toronto and i was the chauffeur who brought them home safely. their extended weekend in ontario went by too quickly but they do travel often so i’m already anticipating the next one. happy to have special delivery and spent the last of my unlimited freedom with mo and my half sweet taro. sometimes, just sometimes, he makes me feel like a princess

i hardly cook anything besides tofu and chicken, but while my parents are on vacation, i decide to experiment in the kitchen with steak and spaghetti. my main focus was not to set the house on fire; not breaking anything was a plus and the dinner for two was a bonus. after a tiresome day of teaching for the start of killarney fall term, i could definitely use some medium rare protein

while my parents sent me a picture of themselves at the gym in mexico resort, so was i. getting on with my 2016 gyming just like any other day. is it really true that people make new year’s resolution to hit the gym starting january doesn’t get past the first week?? there’s not many survivors here from what i can see, but i am not complaining cause that means more space for me. less waiting and more doing to climbing closer to my fitgoals with every rep

day 886 – mountain gear

while my parents are away on vacation, i bought myself some gear for a sport my parents were always opposed of me trying. i now have a complete set of snowboarding gear to go along with my skiing gear. it needs some waxing but i am definitely ready to hit up the mountain when time comes. i figured i wouldn’t go through my lifetime without having given snowboarding a shot. even if i end up choosing skiing for life, i would have done so having at least tried and tested it myself

day 807 – recipe

rather than asking me how i am doing in her absence, the first message mom sent me since leaving town was because she wanted this recipe to be sent to her in a hurry. but in case she’s interested in knowing, i am doing just fine and racing through my hectic schedule, which is nothing new. i guess she’s had enough of eating out everyday and must really want to cook in hong kong
