day 1490 – many miles 

one thousand two hundred odd kilometres later, i have made another loop around portland. road trips are meant to be fun but don’t realize how tiring it can be until i get home. intake was upped significantly during the vacation days, i must once again put on eating restraints; maybe i don’t mind having eating disorder again. it’s good to be back home sleeping on my own bed even if it feels like a sauna

day 1270 – homeworking

laying out my trace paper and other drafting utensils to start my assignment. i had a seven hour taekwondo shift so understandably i am pretty tired. sitting at my desk late at night hardly able to keep my eyes open; it’s not the best idea to start drafting now, but it’s the effort that counts. i guess i have it setup so that i’ll wake up extra early to begin my day with some homework time

day 743 – small boat big boat

walking along side the waterfront in the afternoon and couldn’t help but notice the size differential of the two boats. when a cruise ship and a speed boat is put side by side, it makes the reference of a fish and a shark. reminds me of the time i went on an alaskan cruise where i was trapped on the ship with insurmountable food which almost made me sick. yes, so much food every day, every hour, every waking second, i thought i’d get seriously ill from seeing food

day 739 – mammoth crawlers

my random findings of the day was an ugly ginormous spider. i am not sure if it was died or alive when the picture was captured but that was soon certified after my brother smothered and suffocated it in a plastic bag. i didn’t really care about the process, i just want to get it out of my sight as soon as possible. an unwanted invader in my basement shall not walk out of my house alive

day 638 – below grade

i understand it’s going to be a gigantic building on this site, but i still can’t get over how deep this hole is. as nerdy as it sounds, i find it interesting just to stand and watch the machines dig and maneuver. the digging has been constantly ongoing for many months, i wonder how long deep they will go before foundations start to happen. the jackknife and digging has become background music day in day out

day 428 – portobello

mom preparing to cook some delicious looking giant stuffed mushroom for dinner tonight and still blown away by how big these fungi can become. no denying i am a picky eater and i don’t like to eat the chinese brown mushroom but i will eat portobello and other kinds of mushrooms which according to mom is suppose to be very healthy. i guess all mushrooms are to some degree
