day 1559 – flooring 

together with my parents, we moved all the living room furniture over the long weekend to prepare for more home renovation. came home from work and the construction guy ripped out the public area carpet on the main floor and started laying out hardwood floor at the stairway. it will very be dusty and loud over the next couple days. i’ll miss the warm fuzzy feeling of the carpet, but i’ll have to adapt to the grainy feeling

day 1540 – coffee call

manager wants me to take over more of the talking with each conference call so eventually he doesn’t even sit in with me. i fielded most of the design questions this time and he complimented after the meeting. i can finally breathe after a week of frantic preparation for a conference call with manager and outsource designers. my manager wanted me to take more initiative in the call. i desperately reached for an afternoon coffee after the long haul. the one time i wear white to work and i still coffee on my favorite white shirt

day 1533 – blistered pinkies

it didn’t feel this bad when i went to bed, but certainly erupted overnight. it never occurred to me tying copious amount of skate laces would result in blistered pinkies. really tempted to pop the two blisters on both my hands. i hope the water bubble goes away soon because it’s presence is felt when writing and typing. i still remember two years ago on this day i bruised my eye from a back flip attempt. how time has flown by and i’ve been missing the flipping more and more and thought about going back

day 1519 – cherry imports

i’m happy but not surprised when i saw giant boxes in my kitchen. this is the time of the year when my dad orders ten pounds of cherries from coworker who owns a farm in okanagan. normally i would eat cherries as meal replacements, but it as big and sweet as other years since the peak season is delayed this year. it will get finished nonetheless and then he’ll order another batch

day 1516 – forest blue xz

had been very good with my spendings lately so thought the timing was right to splurge and give myself a late birthday present by adding an xz to my sony collection. wanted to buy this many months ago, stayed patient for my phone case to arrive and the price to drop a bit. then waited some more for the one plus five release, but still set on my forest blue xz. setting up the phone just the way i like it will take some time.

day 1511 – solstice begins

on days like this being stuck indoor away from windows isn’t ideal. the weather looks to be good for the rest of the week with the start of summer season. temperature is on the rise and it’s just one of the reasons summer is my favourite, for it brings sunshine to my life. all the fun summer activities awaits. maybe this will brighten my mood and bring me to a better place 

day 1503 – patch process 

after several weeks of being down, i’m still trying to come around to patch all my negative thoughts. during this period, i notice pessimism is still pretty high and emotionally weakened until patchwork is further along the way. thoughts still pour in when i see things unfold in front of me that i could only envy and wished that could be me. i don’t want to stay a negative person because it’s affecting me all around. the process is slow and somehow i’m still hesitant to speak as much
