day 1893 – western lake

it’s always a special occasion when the best mom i know is celebrating her birthday. together, we celebrated at western lake restaurant with some chinese food. as the years pass by, the amount of time i spend with her lessens and is sporadic at times. my schedule is horrendously packed on a regular basis, but i do what i can to set aside time for family. for that reason, having everyone together like tonight is important. i’ll continue to re-evaluate my priorities to see how i can better manage everything else on my plate

day 1280 – malay meal

happy to have our busy schedules meet so we can spend some evening time together. we work hard during the day and hangout and relax in the evening. molested the lime wedge before i dug into my shrimp tomato pad thai. i may look like a pig with the two big dishes in front of me, but rest assure i didn’t have all that. i did however keep it to a bare minimal to save my quota for tonight’s malaysian meal

i don’t know what exactly is going on, i just know that something is not right. i packed and planned what to eat daily, but i somehow accidentally on purpose refuse to eat. after a day’s work, a workout and a night of dodgeball, i find myself sitting at eight hundred. the outrageously low intake is slightly worrisome especially on a day like this when i have so much exertion. because i stack my schedule with back to back to backs, i don’t put eating as a priority. i get home not sure if i should eat or just sleep. i know for a fact my stomach is empty, but i tell myself that as long as i can fall sleep, it will solve the problem

day 1217 – seven to ten

crazy long day working and schooling for fourteen straight hours and hanging on with five hours of sleep. got home from class half past ten and felt too tired to even eat. it doesn’t help that i’m super stressed out about my term project due in a week on top of the final exam. i am still establishing a protocol to sleep earlier, all for my long term health benefits with the changes my schedule demands

day 1210 – rained in

it’s raining so hard out there so i spent much of my time indoor dealing with and stressing out about my project and lots of scheduling; i’m not leaving the house today until i absolutely have to, in which case i do for class. i have a dull headache, but that’s probably from not enough rest or possibly fighting symptoms of a cold. still, no hockey and no workout for me today is probably the smarter choice for the sake of my head

day 1000 – big millennial

sitting across from me this evening is this fine looking who always makes me feel at ease. we can never get tired spending our down time together going for our lazy walks and finding our random adventures. we both have a very busy schedule, but we make all our time together count. making first appearance on my blog’s milestone 1000th day post is truly special. to be honest, hitting the millenium mark is very self satisfying. it’s been a great ride; let’s keep blogging it together through our various adventures towards many more milestones

resolution series: [fourteen] personal space

having a busy schedule is good because that means i am always productive and proactive. my schedule is usually packed seven days a week, twenty four hours a day, and often needing more time in a day to squeeze everything in to accommodate everyone. it can also be very tiresome because i am always stepping on the gas pedal as hard as i can dashing from one errand to the next. but is accommodating and meeting everyone’s needs my top priority and the sole purpose of living? sometimes, i do wish to have more time for myself away from the rest of the world. aside from taking care of business in the public scheme of things, there are also planning, thinking and number crunching tasks that goes behind the scenes that often gets overlooked. these things tend to be handled in my spare time, which so happens to be time sacrificed from eating and sleeping. i like my personal space and enjoy time alone but it’s very hard to come by. when i am alone, i am able to sit there in silence and reflect on things while putting things into its proper perspective. i find being at the gym gives me that sense of privacy where i can plug in my headphones and shut off the rest of the world. the same can be found when training at taekwondo outside of class time, when all those annoying people don’t interfere at all the wrong times. it’s one of those moments that i will do my thing so don’t you dare come into my bubble while i am in my zone focusing on myself
