day 1605 – hd potluck


this is my second christmas potluck with hd and i’d say i enjoyed this one a lot more than the last. this year, acquaintances became friends and friends became good friends. i set out to accomplish a lot at work this calendar year and certainly i did it. i received year end thank you cards with from the words of my manager and big boss – amazing what you’ve accomplished this year! i made majority of my deadlines in the overworked months, and my break is definitely earned. there’s a lot more in store for me when i return, but for now my job is to recuperate and get ready to rock it in the new year. everyone’s waiting and watching on my comeback year

fight for it

very, very late last night, i finally gathered the courage and came to a tough decision to pass up on this year’s us open. this may be a rare opportunity in my lifetime to partake in such a massive event of exceptional calibre. i never ever in my life imagined myself being granted this opportunity but maybe because of that, it instilled so much fear in me. it would have been a superb experience, but not one that i felt i was ready to take on alone. i didn’t feel like my physical capabilities nor my mental game was ready for this level of competition. i can’t deny i am very disappointed i choose to back out of these opens because it’s something i’ve been really looking forward to for months and months. sometimes i think i would hate myself for letting this chance slip away, but it’s a decision i made and one that i will be able to live with. i know that this decision was as tough on me as it was for those who devoted so much time and energy in me – with their heart and soul and giving me only positive encouragements. there’s several individuals i want to single out for they were always around to listen to all my rants, troubles and everything in between. but none more so than the hardass nazi who never stopped believing in me, who listened to my many insecurities and tried to put everything into perspective in order to will me to take the challenge. i can’t express my gratitude for all the support i have received along the way. i am sorry i couldn’t make this happen, i wished i could find the inner strength. i may seem down and out at the moment, but with time i will recuperate and bounce back stronger than before. i haven’t lost my passion for competing, it’s simply a little setback that i must overcome. moving forward, i will work extra hard to better prepare myself for nationals. it’s going to happen

day 741 – homemade froyo

can’t say i didn’t call it. my forearms are sore the day after wakeboarding. but what i didn’t expect was to be sore to the bone that even my hands and fingers were sore, i had ample of trouble gripping a pen, eating utensils and typing on keyboard. nothing to do since my hands and forearms seem so incompetent. so i skipped out on my plans and ended up eating homemade froyo instead

day 663 – restoration day

yesterday’s physical demands is exactly the reason why getting through today was such a struggle. i wasn’t able to fall asleep last night even though i was thoroughly tired. waking up this morning with a throbbing headache and sore limbs and a splinter still stuck in my sole. my knee is really banged up from the crash and my whole body is sore and immobile to say the least. but all is good knowing i completed my mission yesterday
