day 1657 Рpadding the stats 

third last game of the season for fishsticks so filling the scoresheet is what i needed. i did exactly that tonight, taking the lead in my bet with a one goal two assist night. i was tired heading into the game having worked from nine to eight with a two hour gap in between teaching shift and promotion test, but not so tired after such good production. i’m sure i’ll feel the fatigue even more tomorrow trying to wake up for my 7:30am shift after a late game. i’m just happy that i feel like i’m rounding into form again as playoffs are ramping up.


day 1654 – queen’s tourney¬†

looking at some old photos of when we last played queen’s tournament, and now we’re looking ahead to this year’s. frankly, i haven’t played since september and i can’t tell if i’m missing the sport or missing my friends. it’ll be a real test for that thumb of mine come next week when i step back into the court to field balls. i’m not sure how i feel but i’m sure that’s not relevant. honestly i don’t know how my physio hand specialist feels about that, but making my comeback is bound to happen

day 1647 – fishy game

it’s friday anf i have hockey; this combination usually means it’s a good day. i fit a workout in  between as part of my warmup to get me psyched up for this game. i was feeling strong going through my warmup and light power lifts. fishsticks as a whole played a well rounded game and dominated the ice in every way. i for one had a solid game with many nice passes, and a breakaway that could have ended the game. though we had many missed opportunities and didn’t come away with the win, but i have an assist to show for. feeling the frustration of being blindsided with no call, i played with more aggression and took someone down to send a message. quite satisfied with my game performance and know that i’ve just tied up my bet 

day 1604 – obyf party

potluck bonder for yet another obyf season, eight to be exact. bring your own drinks parties really get out of hand when everyone brings their stash and ends up with a ridiculous amount on the table. enjoyed my night chilling with this gang over food and drinks. even when out of dodgeball setting, dodgeball ends up to be a part our party; what a bunch of dodgeball addicts. we laid out how our season went and savored the winning moment

day 1588 – gymery

though not cleared for most activities i do, the surgeon has given me the okay to be here. my gear was ready and my bag was packed while i waited for his signal. it’s the first time in over two months i could legitmately be here in my happy place doing the happy things. a stupid setback happened due to my impatience and inability to stay put. i thought i was okay, i wanted to be okay, but only after exerting it did i find out it was still premature


day 1554 – schneider’s return

rushed out after finishing all my work and teaching cause i was invited to catch a hockey game – perks from season ticket holder. i’m very happy to have row sixteen view of schneider’s return to rogers arena. he’s the reason i had this game circled in my calendar. it was an exciting game to watch, and one where i wasn’t just cheering for the canucks. in the end canucks took the loss, but definitely outplayed the devils only to be shutout by schneider

day 1502 – goalie gear

it’s so exciting i got my hands on some old goalie gear. i’ve got half the gear and hopefully another friend can lend me the other half to complete the set. there’s no secret i’ve always wanted to try playing goal sever since i was a kid growing up and watching hockey. in the end my lack of size is a disadvantage to goaltending, but i think i’ll still be a good one despite being small. it never hurts to try it and make it a dream come true
