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 1879 – teaching shifts

two teaching shifts after lots of jamming isn’t ideal. not the best day of teaching at taekwondo having to deal with a number of difficult students. the first hour had a handful of uncooperative students while managing a class of thirty two very beginner class. one kid wouldn’t follow instructions, one wouldn’t stop complaining, and one wouldn’t move and kept crying. i couldn’t attend to at the same time, but i did the best i could out of the gongshow situation. survived the day on two peanut butter toasts and a sore throat

day 1721 – crap load

feeling pretty bad at work and also making bad decisions with food. my headache worsened, throat is dry and scratchy, knee is compensating for the hip, and on top of that i’m on some drugs and steroid drops. there’s a lot of work to be done at the office i can’t afford to miss any time. it’s my month to lead the design meetings and i’m currently heavily relied on so i feel obligated to hold down the fort. i toughed it out until the end but i’m going to crawl into bed before nine thirty and hope i wake up tomorrow morning good enough to work

day 1719 – golden ducks

i’d be the first to say i didn’t play a good game yesterday. i think overworking the past few days has gotten my whole body into a funk. at least there’s proof i did do something useful on the ice, leading the attack into sharks territory. my blades need some sharpening before i play next game, and hope i make up for the lack of effort with tomorrow’s game in squirtle debut

day 1369 – playoff sub

was originally going into tuesday playoffs to do exec duties, but ended up subbing in tier 3. we got far into the playoffs, but disappointed with the third place finish. nonetheless there’s a lot to take away from this playoffs. i was really pleased with my play as i was on my game. never have i made so many catches and three of them ended up to be clutch game winning catches. i hope to carry the momentum forward towards next week’s gstrings playoffs. my throat is really sore from reffing countless games

day 1337 – raspy

popping advils and drinking honey lemon water to fight off headache, sinus and raspy throat. i can’t let my immune system fail me now; i need to take care of others instead of being taken care of. going into the office today was hard as hell; i couldn’t concentrate on my tasks as my mind was far, far away. i kept telling myself i must chug on until i can no longer

day 1212 – new quilt

i finally found my other blanket now that my body has succumbed to some sort of virus. hoping that by burying myself in this blanket and sleeping more today, i will be okay to do my black friday shopping in the morning. i woke up mid day not feeling any less crappy, but still hopeful that a miracle will happen overnight. despite feeling unwell and did nothing today, i received some good news and hope more is on its way
