day 1766 – trickery

i took a huge step out of my comfort zone and stepped back onto the spring floor for the first time in nearly two years. the plan is to get back into gymnastics and not only pick up where i left off, but to pick up even more things to add to my repertoire. i’m so stoked i got a chance to be spotted to go head over heels on my first day back. it was definitely a not a natural feeling after not having gone head over heels in some time. i wonder how long it’ll take me to get back landing this flip without a spotter. i have a lot i want to learn, so no doubt i’ll be pushing myself

on cypress mountain doing what i ought to be doing in the winter season. this season, i changed it up and took up snowboarding as part of my 2016 to do list. it’s something i really wanted to add to my repertoire long ago, but was delayed due to commitments and parents restrictions. i didn’t learn with the best conditions, in fact, in one of the worst where the snowstorm was so strong it was blowing me uphill. some said that i was crazy for doing so in such conditions, but i wasn’t going to be picky and only saw it was a challenge. if i could pick it up in this condition, any normal condition would be a walk in the park. definitely want to hit the slopes again before vancouver winter season is all said and done

day 782 – quarterly

just as i thought it is the same old quarterly event, things start to get interesting. unexpected circumstances arise with the stresses of putting together a solo performance on the spot. i suppose there were many things in my repertoire that i could use, but i didn’t want to think and just resorted to some stick knife self defense. another prime example of the always ready expectations put to the test, i can never get too comfortable with that phenomena
