day 2282 – allan mcgavin

starting off november with some good news. four days, five clinics and seven physicians later, i finally have my name on the long mri waitlist. back at the ubc allan mcgavin sports clinic again, this time the sports medicine doctor deems that mri is now a necessity. i’ve been needing this referral for eight months. the two doctors did a bunch of assessements on my foot and deduced the idea of a bone breakage. although a liagment issue isn’t easier to deal with, it’s a relief to know i can ditch the aircast

day 2282 – general practitioner

my family doctor never seems to fail at disappointing me. i went into her office for one reason – to get either an xray or mri referral. i didn’t get either of the said referrals. instead, i got a prescribed topical cream. this blows my mind that one needs to go through medical school to be able to tell me topical cream will be the best relief she can provide. remind me to never go to her unless i want to get disappointed

day 2106 – overdue chat

we met up for some sushi, but the main point was to have an overdue chat while we took a stroll. it’s been on both of our minds for far too long, but timing kind of played it’s game. i was just relieved to clear the air and any awkwardness it brings. a lot of the problem is miscommunication and timing. at the end of the day, we made sure that nothing really changes. in fact, it might actually help us solve some of the things that came over us during this stretch

day 1450 – 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 1409 – colours


i keep thinking what a bad week it’s been with stresses coming from both spectrum. however, it could have been so much worse. i know it’s never a smooth sail across any sea, this is just a bump in our trail. i contemplated so long before speaking, but i’m glad i did or else i would still be hiding all my emotions in the dark. i’m not sure what to think of it, but being able to speak is probably a good thing

resolution series: [three] logical

sometimes emotions get the best of us and it’s how we choose to deal with these emotions that separates you from others. whether that may be through physical outputs or financial outputs or caloric intake. no matter which method you decide to use, make sure it doesn’t cause irreversible damage, severe consequences and endless regrets. everyone has different values and interests and will use their money according to those wants and needs. i like to stay on top with my technology and gadgets and that will likely not change, but that is not by all means affected by emotional spending. emotional eating is a common problem, having said that, i am not saying i will not eat junk from time to time; i just have to beware i don’t use emotional eating and drinking as part of my outlet. need to have self restraint and be logical  by making healthy eating choices. for me, physical output is my go to source when it comes to releasing all my stress and emotional concerns. when i have a rough day, breaking a sweat allows me forget about everything else and usually feel lighter afterwards. it’s like gym is my happy place where i can plug in my headphones and be alone
