day 1801 – carnival time

work was pretty much a write off since many of us chipped in to help setup the annual summer party. this year’s theme is carnival and thankfully there were no clowns present. the games can get intense with a bunch of adults reliving their long lost childhood in a games of human foosball, bungee run and of course tug-of-war. i’m pretty dangerous at human foosball; there were several instances of close calls where i almost kicked someone in the head. fun bbq in scorching hot weather just like last year, i’m sure i went home a shade darker

day 992 – stuffy day

image

today is one of those hot and humid spring days that makes me think spring just ended and summer is well on its way. the temperature peaked at 26 during mid day; i was already sweating as i was standing inside the gym about to begin my warm up. i am ready to get my tan started earlier than last year. i am looking forward to this summer; there’s so many exciting things waiting ahead this season

 

day 781 – rained in

image

having tennis withdrawal already even though it hasn’t been that long since i last played. the cold, rainy and cloudy weather as of late makes me feel even more gloomy inside. i don’t want to make myself believe it will only get worse in the next few months and that outdoor tennis will be put on hold. honestly i love vancouver but i am more suited for longer summer seasons where my tan doesn’t fade as easily

day 506 – most random

image

something random i found in my old phone’s album. had to send my phone back to sony manufacturer because it’s been acting up lately. probably a result of dropping it too many times as of late, thank god for warranty. now i have to resort back to my old phone which really isn’t old at all, but still can’t get used to the smaller screen and slower processor. nonetheless i will have to make do until it comes back

day 377 – getting tanned

image

don’t get the wrong impression i didn’t attempt to suicide, just got cut by the door latch. got tanned enough recently to make the bandaid standout from my skin tone. typically pretty tanned every summer so this is getting closer to the shade i want, but will eventually lose it to the winter darkness

day 368 – pride parade

image

another day out in the scorching temperature, spending my sunday afternoon at pride helping out and playing around at my vdl booth. got my hands on a tier 1 title but probably won’t ever have a chance to pay for it. first time at pride and it was an eye opener just to see the types of festivities this parade hosted. too much cardio in the past two days of this three day long weekend, covering over nine kilometers and more to come tomorrow. but its good training because it helps kick start something new that is a welcoming change in my life
