day 1622 – smiliesĀ 

i may not have had the most restful night, or even had enough at all, but it was a good day. looking at my workload and queue you would think i should be overwhelmed. instead, i’m handling the multiple deadlines and pressure in controlled manner. i was really dialed in and it’s paying dividends in productivity. i left the weekly tech meeting feeling really good with a clear picture. it seems i’ll be occupied ramping up on the new programs. monday work and tutor went smoothly which is worth smiling about

day 1596 – get happy

wake up and be happy that i’m making a difference in someone’s day. happy moment when i feel like i got a lot done and got a shoutout during the admin meeting. as usual i got home pretty late but pretty happy that the day went well and that although there’s a lot of deadlines, everything went smoothly. with christmas just a dozen days away, each day is getting more precious and more booked up by the minute

time to pull out that blue uniform to perform at walk with the dragon like every july. i don’t miss the 8am stanley park mornings, the dragon walk around seawall, or the several hours under either the blazing sun or pouring rain. what’s different about this year is we have more control and freedom as to how we want to structure our demo. the team performed well this year and everything ran as smoothly as it could. i can say this is one of my best demo performances to date, especially executing my triple side breaking better than all the times at rehearsal

day 727 – email outburst

wrote one of my most satisfying email ever today, in response to a parent’s complaint. all my thoughts flowed out in smooth sentences and said exactly what my thoughts were from the bottom of my heart. not only was i not rattled after receiving this, but i am glad she made this complaint. this only gave me the opportunity to voice my opinion or i would never realize how i truly felt about the principles of my teaching, and i stand by it

thought this poster was kinda cute and reminded me of my our balls your face dodgeball team names duos. lots of speculation of how the two names came aboutĀ and there could be an assortment of interpretations for the acronym, but there is no need to share that information with others
