day 2065 – river road stroll

a sunny stroll along river road is what i needed just to clear my mind. let’s face it, i’ve been super burnt out from work and other things that i’ve have sort of lost myself. this is a reminder sometimes i need to slow down the pace to simply smell the flowers and take in the moment. i miss the days where i could take walks without stress, without rushing from one place to another. i take on a lot to please everyone, but maybe sometimes i just need to put myself on the priority list

day 854 – hotspot for hotpot

turning another page of the calendar, to a month i don’t want to welcome. i knew way back that this day was going to arrive, but i was in denial all along. i was scared because every waking second is ticking away and inching closer to your inevitable leaving. every now and then i wish time would slow down just so it can prolong the time we have left together. i really do feel special that we get some alone time to have dinner out in the handful of days you have remaining. know that it’s a rare occasion to expand my unchartered food territory cause i only do this for you

day 670 – sketch model

i like cutting stuff and making models but today’s sketch tower model was almost a costly one. had a really close call as i nearly slit my finger while cutting carelessly fast rushing to finish. being too casual with the xacto knife almost to the point of carelessness. probably a good time thing to slow it down or take a break so not to cause anymore unnecessary damages

day 579 – on my walk

the view of my walk towards the parking lot on my way home while light was still out this very monday evening. since i wasn’t in a rush today, which is rather rare, i slowed down to notice more of the environment in the prominent side of west hastings. never did i bother noticing the different signages above on the lamp posts that helps distinguish different sectors

twenties series: [eight] pace

it may sound strange coming from a person whose life runs at the speed similar to the highway traffic where park zones do not exist. i am just at a point in my life where all my commitments and deadlines are happening all at once, and no matter how fast i push myself, i can never fit everything into a my twenty four hour span. i hate to say that all my commitments may not even fit even if i was granted an additional two hours each day. i drive a bmw with a relatively powerful engine, if i was given a race caliber car, it would be scary scene to see how fast my life moves at when i step on that gas pedal. in the past month, i have been running on a full load and tight schedule based on an average of five hours of sleep per night. its a miracle that i am still functioning after several weeks but i am uncertain how long i will be able to hold up. some things has got to change or i won’t be able to keep up with this hectic and crazy lifestyle. with that said, life is not a race to the finish line, learn to slow it down and pace yourself. you will be glad you did because there are many rewards at every stage of life and chances are you may miss it if you speed through everything

day 219 – early morning

in downtown bright and early for an important meeting on a sunny friday morning. surprisingly didn’t get lost making my way around downtown, it’s not a place i particularly like to be wandering in. time is flying right before our eyes, the week went by really fast and another weekend is on the horizon again. sometimes time needs to slow down because its scary to see that its already the third month into the year
