day 2430 – sticky bug

was so bored stuck at home i literally ran up the wall. i decided to put some time into two of my weaknesses – handstand and bridge. i did a few sticky bugs to get a sense of upside down positioning. then did some bridging and increased it from a ten second hold to a twenty second hold. i also spent some time stretching because i need to get back into practicing my poomsae kicking. i’d like to add these to my quarantine routine

day 2424 – car portraits

getting a new car in the family means doing our car portrait tradition under the tracks. it was the perfect day to do it because it was rainy and had a glimpse of the sun. we took a bunch of photos with several different orientations while some pedestrians stared on. my brother added an audi to the family while i’m also celebrating getting an upgraded bmw. the amount i paid is pretty significant, but i’ve been expecting and saving up for a while

day 2422 – mad wheels

many nominations and tags on instagram have been flowing around due to everyone’s pandemic boredom. one of them was a flashback photo prompted me to dig back into my old photo albums. this came across as one of my favourite. flashing back many years ago racing on a trike with my brother at an early age. i miss those carefree times when work, life and pandemic wasn’t a concern

day 2413 – millie

this week didnt start off well and has felt off. i didn’t feel like going to work any day this week and been procrastinating on all my projects. also been consuming a lot more coffee than usually, sometimes more in the afternoon just to stay awake. i don’t like any interaction with millie, but i’d rather walk over and bug her while she sleeps instead of doing my work. maybe it’s a clear a sign i need a day off soon just to recoup

day 2403 – rooftop view

while it wasn’t raining, my dad and i climbed up to the rooftop to put a mesh on the chimney. hopefully this puts an end to the woodpeckers making all these annoying sounds all day long. i’ve never seem my street from three storeys up. it was fun and scary at the same time, not because i was scared of heights, but i was more concerned for my dad who sometimes overestimates his abilities. it’s amazing he can still climb and do all these dangerous things but i really wished he didn’t

day 2400 – parking lot

leaving the office just shy of five and the lot is empty. if anyone ever questions whether i have enough hours for the compressed work week, they should probably question twenty others first. it gets me so frustrated when micro-managing becomes a thing especially when someone’s just trying to mind their own business and get work done. it also bugs me that the high salary goes to waste on things like this

day 2399 – anti bullying

wearing my christmas sweater in support of anti-bullying pink shirt day. there was a period in time in where i was bullied in grade eight. i got called names and i got shoved into a locker. there i was, thinking it’s normal so i put up with it for a bit. that person eventually got kicked out of hamber. thinking back those were unhappy times that didn’t need to be. had this continued, my hamber years would not have been some of the highlight years of my life thus far
