day 1817 – furniture shopping

i lost track of how many times i pressed the snooze button, but i slept in until my poor body was ready to make any type of movement. my lazy day off was mostly spent with my parents shopping for both furniture and groceries. we came to a decision and laid down three and a half grand for a set of leather sofa. i really could have played another hockey game, but realistically i need to be a sloth so my legs could rest. it’s nice to be able to help my parents out; something i miss doing for my parents

day 1756 – japanese kitkat

coworker came back from japan trip with goodies to share. of the many flavors she brought back, i chose the matcha and sake. of the many kitkat flavors i’ve ever tried, matcha is still my favourite. a headache made me feel crappy this morning, i didn’t think i’d stay at the office the whole day. popping a few advils seemed to have helped me head and got me through the rest of it. calling it an earlier day and hopeful it gets better by tomorrow

day 1607 – meds mishmash

a day after the procedure has me hooked on all types of medicine and drops. so many painkillers and eye drops prescribed i can’t keep track on which one is which and all seems to be the same. the limited screen time forces me to sleep and rest to make up for all the times that i don’t get enough. truth is, since the surgery, i’ve had more than all of december combined. truth is, this is probably the only time i’ll ever get enough sleep and the life gets back on a grind. this holiday season will start off slow but i’ve stacked my schedule for new years so the best has yet to come

day 1236 – hit hard

i think i made a bad decision to go in without adequate rest, and one little mental lapse was all it took. i was hit hard and my workout ended prematurely; that’s one way of driving me out of the gym. the rest of the day was a struggle and slightly blurred. in hindsight, i’m fortunate i wasn’t knocked out and could still walk out under my own power. i know i need to do something, but clueless as to what i should do and which physician to consult

day 1022 – landed in hong kong

much of the day was spent trapped in a confined plane, but i finally made it out to see some light. it’s kind of hard to keep track since i lose a day due to crossing numerous time zones. luckily the seat next to mine was not occupied, which made the thirteen hour flight a tad better. during the plane ride, i jotted down many things in my notebook including some upcoming plans, goals, thoughts and reflections that i want to attack and achieve once i get from this trip. i also got a chance to watch the movie fantastic four

the weather is humid but fortunately it’s not too hot today. everything went smoothly as i took the double decker out of airport and my parents were there to meet me at the terminus station near my grandma’s place. it has been a week since i saw my parents; they were very glad to see me, and so was i. i went to bed before 11pm because plane rides are very taxing

day 995 – therapeutics

my morning physio to get my head and neck fixed turns out to be remedial for both my knees as well. lots of damage was done during rdl playoffs because somehow both my knee caps were messed up. no surprise physio was angry with my head injury; i can’t blame him. but it doesn’t change the fact of that what’s done is done, nor does it change the way i would have handled it. i’ll just focus on resting up and hoping for speedy recovery so i can continue to grind

day 988 – doctor blows

going in to see a medical doctor to satisfy my parents’ even though i knew it was going to be a total waste of time, and i couldn’t be more right. started off the week with a 39 high fever, dropped down a degree or two, but suddenly shot back up to 39 and now i even have cold-like symptoms. the doctor told me i don’t have strep throat, something i could have concluded myself. if i wasn’t semi dying, i wouldn’t even think twice about going in at all. what a way to spend my special one monther
