day 2407 – brainstorming

the thirty six hour whirlwind of text messages, calls and emails is finally over. i got the all important document that salvaged killarney classes for this weekend. even though it’s fixed in the nick of time, it doesn’t change the fact the business owner didn’t own up to his school and left me out on this insurance roller coaster. if i hadn’t personally reached out, none of the problem would never have been resolved. i’m learning as i go, but i’m also learning how much the grandmaster is willing to do for killarney. maybe it’s really time i start my own thing

day 2399 – anti bullying

wearing my christmas sweater in support of anti-bullying pink shirt day. there was a period in time in where i was bullied in grade eight. i got called names and i got shoved into a locker. there i was, thinking it’s normal so i put up with it for a bit. that person eventually got kicked out of hamber. thinking back those were unhappy times that didn’t need to be. had this continued, my hamber years would not have been some of the highlight years of my life thus far

day 2277 – girl can dream

a design concept i’ve stayed up many late nights thinking and working on this model. i’ve really taken this concept to heart hoping one day i could own a space like this and run my own business. i imagined a space reasonably sized, but with all the necessary equipment arranged in what i deem as the most ideal layout. a space i own could never go without a personal gym space. i wonder if and when this could become a reality. i understand for this to happen, a lot of steps and obstacles must be taken, but i’ll keep dreaming in the meantime

day 1989 – shakespeare

img_20200124_1550451151767386732079481.jpg

seeing my student reading romeo and juliet for english class brings back so much highschool memories. it’s one of those assigned readings that i never quite finish, but somehow got eighty one percentage on the test. i wasn’t exactly a keener when it came to english homework and it wasn’t a subject i found interesting. i hope she doesn’t ask me any shakespeare question cause i wouldn’t remember anything

day 1302 – skinny latte

img_20200204_1657458026898167595129842.jpgday three and i can walk without pain but the bigger question is can i kick, can i play, can i still compete?? there’s progress every day but my leg is still bothering me and stopping me from doing fun things. i’m not going to lie, but i was on the fence with skipping class. in the end i chose to go to school to be a good student and tried to be productive. caffeine intake was necessary so i can get through school

day 1270 – homeworking

img_20200204_180107710531196343063793.jpglaying 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 1267 – site plan

img_20200204_1819456636639455077006864.jpgafter the professor blew by his explanation of the assignment, i was still as confused as i was prior to explanation. good thing i wasn’t the only one because both my neighbours turned to me looking equally puzzled. together, we deciphered his chicken scratch and sketches. that’s not a bad way to meet two new people. there’s a lot to be done for next class, but at least i know what’s to be done

day 1260 – drafting

image

survived the first day of class and my first assignment is already handed in at the end of class. this isn’t what i was expecting when i read the course description, hand drafting all over again. i haven’t exactly got the prerequisite for this class either but the instructor said i don’t have to worry since my assignment was done well. it’s been a fifteen hour day; my brain is so exhausted and i’m utterly pooped. it was bedtime by the time i got home

day 1224 – put on ice

image

the drive to the rink was icy, but i wanted to play my game after writing my final exam and handing in the term project that made me sacrifice games the past two weeks. the final was confusing but i walked out and glad to be done. on the ice, a guy nailed me from behind with a cross check. i was fine and got up immediately to stay in the play but my teammates were sticking up for me. glad to know they got my back and didn’t take exception to a nasty hit. i can feel my battery is pretty depleted; not much energy left in me but i still got good chances and best of all my team came out on top

day 1222 – plug away

image

meeting at coffee shop to actually do some work on building my library project. with two days before the deadline, it’s a must to get down to business and be productive. i regretfully procrastinated again and have tons and left myself with no choice but to work until 2am to get as much as i can done since i won’t have time to do so tomorrow. i don’t know why i always make it so hard on myself, that’s something i must work on
