day 1197 – first career goal

image

i’m officially on the stat sheet with my first career goal and seven games into the season. the goal was hugely satisfying as i roofed it over the goalie; he probably underestimated my ability to lift the puck off the ice. i had a strong game with good chances which earned me player of the game. the referee was quick to give me the game played puck and i didn’t waste any time in labelling it. it was a busy and productive running around town; i need more days like this and i need to remind myself to keep my spirit high

day 978 – carb loading

image

back in town from a self satisfying trip down portland. first off, post competition breakfast carb loading with my man. competition prep period had its millions of sacrifices and restrictions which made some days painstakingly hard to get through. i haven’t eaten so much in a meal in so long, i forget how bread and potatoes amongst many other things taste like. i’ll give myself a couple days off to indulge in things i couldn’t have had during that phase, but won’t be long before i have to live with those restrictions again in pursuit of my next big event

day 727 – email outburst

image

wrote one of my most satisfying email ever today, in response to a parent’s complaint. all my thoughts flowed out in smooth sentences and said exactly what my thoughts were from the bottom of my heart. not only was i not rattled after receiving this, but i am glad she made this complaint. this only gave me the opportunity to voice my opinion or i would never realize how i truly felt about the principles of my teaching, and i stand by it

day 697 – montreal poutine

image

and a poutine to wrap up my montreal nationals trip. i couldn’t leave montreal without having eaten their city’s most famous food – where the infamous smokery poutine originated. there’s a lot of guilt with every bite cause i have been eating too much and definitely too much filthy junk food all trip long. i definitely need a detox once i get back and everything should go back to normal with healthier foods

day 624 – homework

image

tonight is the closest it will get to being a perfect night where i feel unbelievably good accomplishing exactly what i wanted to do. i was under a lot of stress and breaking a sweat at the gym was the solution cause i walked out satisfyingly exhausting, but also reenergized. after i got it out of my system, i was able to focusĀ and work away without realizing the time. staying up late is what i was regularly harped at because i do it much too often, but at least it’s for a good cause
