day 2482 – rock message

vancouver city public tennis courts are finally reopened, but i still can’t seem to go out and do what i love doing because the weather hasn’t been cooperating lately. i’ve been urning to get out on the hardcourts and hit some tennis balls. instead, i took a walk the moment it wasn’t wet and rainy. during my stroll in one of vancouver’s biggest nature park, i encountered some random writings but not sure what the message is trying to convey

day 2472 – minion celly

my little hospitality design minion invited me over to her place for my belated birthday celebration. we had our long overdue catch up chat while enjoying our steak salad and roasted veggies. after our delicious dinner, we went out for an evening stroll while the sun set behind us. the perks of living in olympic village is the seawall is literally her backyard. i’m very thankful i was out today to take my mind off things that’s causing my stress level to rise

day 2451 – skytrain stroll

saturday evening social distancing stroll has become a regular thing when covid is in effect. i’m so glad the weather has been good to us so we could spend time outdoors. i for one would go insane if i was trapped indoors with no activity. we walked one skytrain station and back which turned out to be a lengthy forty five minute walk. we walked at a leisurely pace, but somehow my bad knee was in some discomfort by the end

day 2187 – lunch stroll

i really wasn’t feeling i was in the right place, so i went for a stroll to get some air after lunch. i walked aimlessly outside in the opposite direction because i didn’t want to have any interaction. i still am not back to my old self from the outbreak that i couldn’t prevent. i’m trying my hardest to do so but it’s still too noticeable that i haven’t been carrying myself the same way i normally do. i may need to take a day off as a way to recoup

day 2106 – overdue chat

we met up for some sushi, but the main point was to have an overdue chat while we took a stroll. it’s been on both of our minds for far too long, but timing kind of played it’s game. i was just relieved to clear the air and any awkwardness it brings. a lot of the problem is miscommunication and timing. at the end of the day, we made sure that nothing really changes. in fact, it might actually help us solve some of the things that came over us during this stretch

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 2038 – design brunch

we’re overdue for a group activity so we’re treated to a design brunch at comina. we took advantage of the nice day out and walked around steveston area and fisherman’s wharf before heading back to work. some bought plants, a few grabbed mini donuts, and many grabbed coffee during our ‘free’ time. sometimes a breath of fresh air relieves some stress and pulls us out of a things we shouldn’t be caught up with

night time stroll in the whistler village after pigging out at earls kitchen. taking some time to digest the delicious steak we devoured and admiring the pretty lights on the trees. i wonder if the lights are only up during this time of the year; although i expected the olympic rings to be lit up as well. we’ve walked to and from the village numerous times but still seem to lose our ways every single time

day 1154 – hold off

image

i feel like i’ve lost control of what i can control. i can’t hide the disappointment that hit me when physio told me to stop and rest for a week. he rarely does that to me and usually lets me play within my limits, so when he does, i know it’s severe. that means skipping games, gym, trainings…does it also mean skip my competition?? how long i manage to stay away remains to be seen. overwhelming day with that news, school and more life questions

day 1096 – walk of life

image

everybody’s walk of life is a little different, this is my night time walk. i’ll find my way that leads to the path that my heart desires. it’s been a day of a weird long weekend full of unexpected circumstances and sudden turn of events. one that gave me a lot of realizations and held a lot of hard truths. although it was a laid back day, i am still very tired and could use the extra rest. i’ll give my body a break since i am too sore to benefit from exercising
