day 2296 – missing me

this is an extreme pessimism post because i’ve seriously had enough everything. there’s so much i miss about this. i miss being able to move without so much pain and limitations. i miss being the fittest, strongest and best shape of my life. i miss doing backflips, kicks and flips at will. i miss playing hockey and dodgeball with all my teammates. i miss the soreness that came after every lifting and training session. i miss being able to jump and climb onto anything i wanted to. i miss the summer sunshine and being outdoors until night. i miss doing everything i can’t do at the moment

day 2294 – parents in cuba

parents sent some pictures back whilst they’re enjoying the sun and beaches in cuba. they haven’t been online a whole lot during this trip, but when they are, they like to whatsapp a bunch of pictures they took. it’s good to see that they’re enjoying their time off and much deserved vacation. i hope that one day i can also have the same amount of vacation days and luxury to travel the world. i guess i should start looking and planning for next my vacation destination

day 2264 – scooter ride

just because the sun was still out, we did a spontaneous trip out with scooter rentals. i must admit i was nervous since i’ve never ridden a scotter in my life and haven’t ridden a bike in years. we rode it from the shop in mount pleasant to ubc, taking all the bike routes possible. i stayed pretty safe for the most part with the exception of putting my foot down while trying to stop at top speed. that really did it for my knee and i couldn’t put much weight on it afterwards. it was a really fun experience and this checks off one item off my bucket list. though next time i know to layer up because it got really chilly

day 2263 – photography walk

caught up with a friend and went outside to enjoy what may be the last sunshine of this year. it was a productive yet adventurous photography walk through olympic village and mount pleasant. we stopped to take pictures of many art structures and murals. a little disappointed we didn’t get any beta5 puffs before they sold out, but earnest is nothing to be disappointed about either. taking advantage of open gym because i can afford to have a late night

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 1558 – polar


the start of november has seen some cold days, so cold it’s already reached below zero temperature. the sunshine makes me want to walk outside, but the cold went deep through the skin and into the bone within a minute. i haven’t put away my summer clothes yet and already miss the summer days. daylight savings ending makes it darker and colder earlier. deep inside my heart feels as cold as the air outside; i only wish there’s a fix to what’s wounded inside

day 1480 – riverway round robinĀ 


rounds robin day for softball at the nicely groomed fields of riverway sports complex. going to be camping out in these eight diamonds for the next two days to finish up slopitch summer season. it’s an activity filled saturday full of slopitch, teaching and then hockey. i’m very disappointed that drop in did not happen as i was looking to play a serious game two of playoffs. no one would suspect there’s a mix up of rink bookings after playing at the same time slot since may
