day 2065 – river road stroll

a sunny stroll along river road is what i needed just to clear my mind. let’s face it, i’ve been super burnt out from work and other things that i’ve have sort of lost myself. this is a reminder sometimes i need to slow down the pace to simply smell the flowers and take in the moment. i miss the days where i could take walks without stress, without rushing from one place to another. i take on a lot to please everyone, but maybe sometimes i just need to put myself on the priority list

day 1305 – wash and dry

despite sleeping at 2 in the morning, i naturally woke up early as usual. morning was a little laid back as i had no urgency to wake up immediately so i slept in a little before giving my filthy shadow a little quick wash. it took a little longer than i thought so didn’t have much time for a lunch before it was time for taekwondo. i could have joined my rdl social, but after a seven hour taekwondo shift, i was too tired and turned for home. i could use the personal space just to think and straighten some things out

day 1288 – cake pop

i’ve never even heard of cake pop, but i learned it’s starbucks’ version of timbit on a stick. i was contemplating so hard before i took a bite. it was too sweet and not worth the diabetes. the expected snowstorm caused my campus to close and my class to be cancelled tonight. getting home before 8pm was a welcomed sight because i really needed the time to catch up on many of my to do list items and also wind down for the night

day 929 – resurrect

tomorrow i am going to get some me time to reboot both my mind and my system. i feel i need some time to regroup and make sure i’m back on track doing things i need to be doing and doing things i enjoy doing, for the right reasons. the past week or two has been lousy where i am just going through everything mindlessly like a robot but not thinking twice about what i am seeking out of it. and during this time, there’s either been a lot of emotional eating or unhealthy thoughts and choices made. i really should put things back into it’s proper routine and get back in the right frame of mind to make the best choices for myself moving forward. february is a short month, so better not waste time and get back on track as soon as i possibly can

day 857 – cambie corridor

night time on cambie looking down the street fronts and oncoming headlights. this corridor has really become my hood through the years, for everything i need and do can be found. i had a gym calling to put in my work before going out for dinner with the family. with the sky being so clear tonight, thought to myself why not take a stroll before heading home. an enjoyable stroll it was because i needed personal space to debrief and recuperate, for much of it was invaded this past week

day 856 – outlet source

one of my social media platform was invaded today and it never feels good when my personal space gets trampled on; almost like my human rights got mutilated. i swear if something wasn’t fixed by the end of today, i wouldn’t stop short of letting my displeasures be known. good thing we have come to a consensus and found a solution that might work. it was one of those days where i thought i wouldn’t hold myself together and lose control. i came ever so close to blowing up but i am glad i went to my trusted place, a place i can always count on as a source of outlet and digression

day 691 – training alone

image

my alone time away from the distractions of everyone else. i like training alone cause that’s when i can usually get my best work done. but that’s also what gets me in trouble cause i always need someone to tell me not to slack off when i get distracted or watch over me to tell me what exactly is wrong and lacking. my knee is still so busted but seems like it will get little help until it is all said and done. competition day getting real close so i am feeling stressed out waiting for the poomsae draw to be posted
