day 2513 – national sushi day

the letdown was real when i had to skip my apex session and tricking class because my knee is in terribly rough shape. the only salvaging factor was my friends coming over for a garage lifting session. wasn’t expecting to do a whole lot without my legs under me, but turns out i untapped new territory benching ninety pounds for five reps without relying on my spot. the sushi for lunch afterwards made me feel a little better even though nothing will really make up for what i have to sacrifice

day 2508 – picnic dinner

last minute changes to co-worker’s birthday because dine in wasn’t really available. fortunately, the weather changed for the better so we could order takeout and have a picnic dinner. seeing my coworkers after months of separation is pretty heart warming. we had an enjoyable time catching up with lots of laughs. was planning to just chill, but ended up tossing a frisbee around, hid from big dogs and did a flip. i miss seeing their faces at the office and chatting on teams to get through the work day together

day 2465 – sushi takeout

ever since my family found out tentatsu is open up again, my brother jumped on the phone and ordered takeout. out of all the sushi places in our area, tentatsu is by far one of our favourites because their portions decent or and their quality is consistent. even without the sashimi, i guess this is still the next closest thing to being the best takeout option. this was probably the one thing that sparked my day

day 2436 – ice cream cake

crazy quarantine time isn’t the most ideal way to spend any birthday, but with no place to dine in, my brother will have to settle for a sushi takeout dinner. we also changed it up and brought an ice cream cake from dairy queen. it was quite the nostalgic taste because we haven’t had it since our teenage years. i really hope this covid situation has significant improvements soon so we won’t be trapped in our homes desperately looking for things to entertain ourselves with

day 2395 – coach jervin’s

saturday night celebrating coach jervin’s birthday at flightclub. i brought sushi to the potluck dinner and it was demolished within twenty minutes. after much eating, chatting and cake cutting, we played big games of mafia. it was really fun since it was my first time being a mafia. can’t believe some of us stayed until almost 2am just chatting in the dark. this was after teaching seven straight hours so i was super tired and my brain could barely function properly

say 2329 – potluck dish

my appetizer dish for the annual hospitality designs christmas potluck is smoked salmon on rice crackers. there’s a whole assortment of food including sushi, fried rice, noodles, fried chicken, samosas, pizza, salad, meatballs, chili and cakes to name a few. i tried to have a variety, but some things just weren’t for me. the food was okay, but the extended lunch break was good to calm down some of the work stress

day 2199 – sushi satisfaction

had japanese food two days in a row but i don’t mind it one bit. still going strong with the intermittent fast as long as i keep dinner to a reasonable time. had an appointment in the morning to fix some ailing problems. then a fun taekwondo shift today even though we didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. it’s getting close to that time again for both the colour belt and blackbelt testing. this time i’m don’t feel as rushed and stressed preparing the students that should be taking it

day 2153 – nintendo switch

a cozy night staying in playing nintendo switch and eating sushi. just a small get together to celebrate an ex-coworker’s birthday. also a good time to catch up and digress a little on the things that’s been happening around. after i got a few things off my chest, we changed the mood with some games. i rarely get to play video games, but it’s no surprise i got creamed in every game we played. we had good laughs all around and that’s all it matters

day 2113 – catchup time

it’s probably my fault that some hangouts happen less frequently than it should. finally catching up with a long time highschool friend over some food. it was good to just chat and download all the things that’s gone by. i realize all she wanted to do was to treat me to a meal for my birthday. i really do cherish that so much of our lives has changed, but our friendship hasn’t. maybe next time we can get a few of the core people out all at once

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
