day 1824 – current status

img_20200130_213535463764481126162429.jpgicing and heating both my shoulder and elbow while maintaining movement is the story of the day. i really didn’t know what to do and what to think of it because i hadn’t done any tests, scans or rays. i refused to go to emergency even though dozens urged me to do so. i had no mood to do anything knowing sports is off limits right now. so i just stayed at home in the heat and sweated my sorrows away

day 1666 – green apple 


setting aside some time to do my run training since the sun run is only two months out. my lungs were clearly not used to all this cardio, i don’t know how people run the marathons or do ironman. though it’s sunny, the subzero temperature and icy ground doesn’t make it sense to be running outside. on my way to the gym i spotted a green apple mercedes on the road

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 1255 – milder weather

reminiscing the summer temperatures because vancity’s winter has been far from mild. i’ve had enough of this snow, extremely chilly days and even earthquakes today. i walk out in the morning to be met by negative eight degrees which is unheard of in vancouver. the icy roads have been terrible; i witnessed accidents and had a few incidents where my car was sliding helplessly. my shadow is just hibernating and waiting for the snow to disappear

day 1115 – live streaming

day 1114 – fresh air

DSC_1860getting outside for some fresh air because being trapped indoor makes me bored and drowsy. even though temperature is up in the thirties, it’s not so bad when there’s shade under the trees and water to calm my soul. the hike did it’s job; i came home recharged and finished my poster graphic. i had a lot of technical difficulties dealing with gigantic files, constantly compressing and keeping the file sizes down was a pain

day 1109 – diamond two

VID-20180530-WA0018_9542the warmup for my softball playoff game was walking across the beautiful but neverending mowed grass. it was so hot under direct sunlight, but some would say it’s perfect weather to play ball. i started the season batting ninth, kept moving up as the games went on and today found myself third in the batting order. the season didn’t end in glorified fashion, but it was the team effort that counted. i played hard even when we were trailing, striking the ball three solid times along with a walk. i guess an 8am game has a lot to do with how sleepy i am. i’ll pass out early and get my stuff done tomorrow morning instead

day 1040 – matinée movie

image

sunday is our recharge day; we needed it more than any other sunday. we were both spent from spartan race and other activities yesterday, but that doesn’t stop us from getting our iron fix. for the rest of the day, we occupied ourselves with low energy consumption activities such as catching a matinée movie, window shopping and a short stroll. the temperature spiked today but the weather was beautiful, dripping sweat with the slightest movement

day 887 – city snow

image

i look outside the window this morning to see vancity managed to have snow sticking to the ground. i am almost surprised it didn’t happen earlier with the temperatures being consistently low, it was only a matter of time. and since my parents were out of town, i had no problem getting around driving with their vehicle. i can’t help but to think that the mountains will have great skiing conditions after last night’s snowfall

day 885 – frozen web

image

i need not to step outside my house to get a feeling of how cold it is out there. the spider web outside my backyard says it all. upon closer view, i don’t even see the spider manning its web, maybe it died of hypothermia. with this kind of temperature, i will gladly stay indoor in the comfort of my own home wrapped up in my cozy bed. i guess my only excuse is my legs are somewhat tired from that skiing i had done
