day 2257 – monday off

compressed work week saving me by letting me sleep in like no other. also blessed to have the day off to take my mom out for birthday lunch. basically woke up at 11am, then met up with my parents near both their offices to enjoy some beef noodles. stopped by the gym to stretch, roll and use the sauna before heading out to flightclub. had a lot of fun after hours training, getting more back handspring reps in. hopefully all these reps will pay off sooner rather than later. i opted not to join the crew for dinner because i had some cake errands to run before the stores closed

day 2144 – father’s and mother’s

combining father’s day and mother’s day dinner into one this year because my parents and i have taken turns going on vacation. we went for the typical chinese seafood restaurant at fraser court. we wanted to try a place we don’t normally go to, but it’s safe to say we won’t be back for a while. it was a very laid back kind of sunday where i didn’t have to wake up for anything so i slept in until noon. i guess i’m still making up sleep from the vacation days where it was always go go go

day 2104 – flex day

took a flex day in anticipation that i’d be exhausted from a weekend of activities and i couldn’t be more correct. there was no way i would’ve been able to wake up at 6am for work. i slept in until 11am, and half the day was gone before i knew it. i really should be cleaning up, doing laundry and preparing food, but i mulled around and finished off my drama series. i went to flip and stayed until late despite my leg and ankle being crazily bruised up. good luck waking up for work tomorrow morning

day 2029 – sick day

instead of going into work, i stayed at home all day because i woke up with a headache, sore throat and the feeling that i’m fending off an oncoming cold. after calling in sick at 7am, i managed to sleep until past 1pm. sleeping fourteen hours is a really, really rare occasion since i usually get six or less. i logged a total of less than two thousand steps so my fitbit probably thought i was dying

day 1972 – stick and pucking

winter break and off days are the best time to sleep in and catch up on what i’ve lacked all year round. it’s also a good time to put in some extra practice at the stick and puck sessions i wouldn’t otherwise have been able to make. getting a free pass to christmas eve afternoon stick and puck session to work on some shots, pivots and stick handling sounded like a good choice

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 1805 – home alert

a much delayed sick day and stayed day home to do nothing. even after sleeping in until ten in the morning, i still felt really crappy. not only has my head been hurting constantly for weeks, i could feel my blood pressure is at a low and couldn’t get my head or body to function. knowing so, i had to deliberately feed myself some salt. although i didn’t go into work, i was still checking my work email hourly. not being able to make it out to hockey game isn’t so bad, but it’s alarming when i felt indifferent missing it
