day 1070 – mccafe

image

trying to be productive at mcdonalds requires iced coffee to keep me awake and alive. the reliance on coffee has become too strong; it’s the only way to sit down and get some work done. lots of work to be done and lots of thinking ahead. i’ve never seen these cute mini mccafe coffee cups before, but i guess i would not have if i didn’t make specific requests

day 826 – tape addict

image

there’s no denying i abuse athletic tape and going through rolls and rolls of tape is something i am accustomed to. i rummaged through my bag tonight only to find six used, semi used and brand new rolls of tape. my dependence on tape and braces has become so strong, i feel that it would get me through my activities and i will be a-okay . i always believed that athletic tape, braces, bengay and advil are the solution to most of my physical problems. no matter how banged up, bruised, sprained or sore i may be, these will allow me to continue training and playing my sports as i wish

resolution series: [two] decisions

image

decision making is a skill that humans slowly develop over time, but one may not notice it is not an innate skill. every child starts off with their parents doing the decision making because we are too young to make sensible choices. i have always had my parents make decisions for me no matter how big or small and that carried through to up and including university. i started later than most people and have developed too much reliance on my parents and others which may be the cause of my often indecisiveness. all i ever did was go with the flow and following the the instructions they give. but there comes a time when they have to slowly let go and let me make more of the decisions. sometimes the choices i make will be good and sometimes not so good, but its all a part of growing up and a learning curve that i must make. sure enough my parents will always be in the background giving me logical advice to consider because they’ve been through something i haven’t yet. sometimes it’s as simple as choosing the shoe i want to wear, which may seem harder than it really is. but i am slowly getting the hang of it by taking charge of my choices and paving for the road i want to travel

happy saturday pi day because it’s only once we get 3.14.15. you have no idea how hard it is to find a store that carries this nowadays, so it makes these minty tubes ever so precious. found these sitting on the shelf and had to stock up on my friend ben after using the last of it the previous weekend. my training will go into full force very soon so i sure need these available and within my arms length at all times
