day 2302 – pajama shift

the luxury of working from home is i can wake up five minutes before and work in my pajamas. it’s a bit challenging working with one laptop-sized scree as opposed to two large monitors, but i’ve kept up. it’s been kind of good working remotely because i find my productivity level actually goes up. i also didn’t feel detached because i could use microsoft team to chat with friends within the office. the only drawback is having technical difficulties trying to connect my laptop to a conference call

day 2291 – poke time

spent the statutory holiday chilling at home watching netflix and dramas. not productive but relaxing day to say the least. evening rolled around and it was a very productive. bought ingredients home and did the full do-it-yourself poke bowl for dinner. the bowl was deliciously refreshing with my favourite salmon sashimi. i wouldn’t mind making it again sometime. i also did a bunch of meal prepping for the upcoming week

day 2270 – stay home sunday

stayed home originally thinking i’d be lazy, but turns out to be a work afternoon. i finished the much delayed payrolls for terms of killarney because someone complained about class reserve distribution. the email chain started getting out of hand and in turn made me even more agitated. i checked the spreadsheet and all is good to go until he makes other complaints. at least i got off my plate and onto better things

day 2158 – teddy bear stand

no work on monday because of a long weekend means i can go to open gym and not have to worry about how late i stay out. training started productive, drilling five back tucks on floor and fifteen front tucks on blue. i also did some aerials, arabians and spotted flash kicks before my knee started hurting slamming onto blue mat on btwists. i then switched to teddy bear head stand and handstand practice. i’m more concerned that my hair and ponytail is messed up after each attempt

day 2128 – grand place

arrived in belgium by late afternoon on a eurostar train and made a very productive first day. started by going far out to atomium where i did my second flip. it was a little better than the first, but still not getting the height and rotation i’d like to see. also visited grand place, manneken pis and bruxelles stock exchange building. we were much more efficient than the original itinerary; i hope it’s not because we’re doing a hasty job of taking photos and not fully absorbing. we even went back to grand place and stayed until 10:30 before deciding this is as much light as we’ll get to see

day 2055 – stackable boxes

finishing my stackable plyometric project on a sunny sunday afternoon. it’s great to have a dad that is capable of doing so much handyman work because he did most of the work while i just assisted in the ways that i can. now all that is left is to sand the edges and perhaps attach a thin taekwondo mat on the top to make it safer for shins. if i wanted to go one step further, i could also paint it

day 1966 – open doors

dropping in to a rare visit to open gym because i want to make a big push to regain some moves before christmas break kicks in. i’ve had a rough patch and felt like i’ve lost a lot of what i worked so hard for. tonight i was given some basic instructions and drills to get me started on the moon kick. after i got tired or moon kicks, i threw some gainers into the foam pit. also touched on some front tucks, roundoffs, handstands and back tucks. it was a productive open gym and i’ll look for ways to go to some more
