day 2198 – desk reconfiguration

i’m asked to reconfigure my workstation again because marketing team was said to be too far apart. at least i don’t have to move again and only have to change my desk setup from right hand side to left hand side. i’ll still get to use my giant monitors as acoustic panels to shield the noise and distraction from the high traffic area. a good chance to clear out my desk and get ready to leave it for the weekend

day 2193 – squirtle announcement

it wasn’t a well kept secret, but the formal announcement was made at the dundas team dinner. squirtle assistant captain is tying the knot next summer and the date is set. so happy for her and looking forward to the stag parties we will be having. we had a round of shots to celebrate and i only had an order of salad roll because i wanted to hit up open gym for some flips

day 2180 – three bag

left my jersey in the wash, but at least i found a shirt to wear. first time i’m fielding on the right side of the diamond at third base. i was ready to take some balls off the body because the ball really kicks up after a bouncing on gravel. ended the night with only two bruises, one on the bicep and one on the stomach. i haven’t figured out how to take high balls off the backhand but i did made some pretty good stops and threw out two runners at first base. the team played really well defensively considering we were playing opponents a tier above

day 2155 – sechelting

as canada day long weekend approaches, i’m thinking back to the easter long weekend when the squirtle squad went to sechelt for a couple days. we didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, and we didn’t need to because being with each other was what it was all about. i hope we’ll plan another team outing very soon because i miss these faces after not having seen them since i left for my eurotrip. there’s so many activities i’m still itching to try

2099 – softball season

i was unable to attend softball opening weekend so espr season kicks off for me with a double header. i got reacquainted at first base which is the position i’ll probably play at most of the season. the swing is a little off after eight month off season. i only managed to get on base three of the six at bats. i took a hard ball to the shin early in the second double header which got me limping. i didn’t need to unroll my high socks during the game because i already saw a big bump forming. when i got home, i checked the damage but made the executive decision i didn’t need to get it examined further

2042 – killarney kids

this is the end of our poomsae training sessions before saturday’s bc championship. this is one of the largest killarney team we’ll have at a provincial competition. through the past several weeks of training, they’ve work really hard and improved a lot. i want to keep growing killarney’s competition team and create the comradery that we’ve never had before. hopefully this will lead to something good like taking some of them to bigger stages

day 2025 – team squirtle

finally a group picture of the squirtle squad comes during game one of the playoffs. it was a close game one but good thing we took the win in the end. we were neck and neck for most of the game until we busted out with two unanswered goals. i detest this team because they have the dirtiest players who plays with no remorse. the guy who i almost got into a fight with last game came at me again with an outstretched arm and wanted to land an open ice hit when the puck is nowhere near. just glad we got the win against an unworthy team. the commitment was real when half the team including myself transported to play game one of fishsticks still wearing most of our gear. that’s enough activities in one day; i’m exhausted and ready to pass out
