day 1614 – big cheers

time really does fly by quickly and another three hundred and sixty five posts later, it’s the eve again. as every year comes to an end, i make reflections but the difference is how i plan for the upcoming. 2017 had its challenges and the latter part was tough being involved in many unfortunate events.  here’s a toast to hoping for a good 2018 where my pretentious goals and big dreams come true. happy new year and stay true to yourself


day 1581 – outfit of the day

perhaps wearing my new oxford look-alike today gave me a special bounce in my step. today marks one year, how time flies and how things have changed since my start at hd. i’m grateful for how things have shaped up and how much i’ve grown and improved. i’ve doubted myself in so many ways and lost myself far too many times, but i somehow i carried forward even at the toughest crossroad. i look forward to all the opportunities that lie ahead knowing i’m paving my own path

day 1462 – raising

first day of august which is also the day my new salary kicks in. i worked my butt off for this day and i will continue to work even harder to make my case. my manager said that he intends to take me as high as i would like. i’m in it for the ride and still on have my eyes on the target working towards that unit of mine. there’s a reason why i’m constantly working; because i know what i want. it’s about wanting to build my own empire from the ground up

day 1443 – blistered pinkies

it didn’t feel this bad when i went to bed, but certainly erupted overnight. it never occurred to me tying copious amount of skate laces would result in blistered pinkies. really tempted to pop the two blisters on both my hands. i hope the water bubble goes away soon because it’s presence is felt when writing and typing. i still remember two years ago on this day i bruised my eye from a back flip attempt. how time has flown by and i’ve been missing the flipping more and more and thought about going back

day 1373 – sumptuous birthday

spending my birthday in vegas wasn’t my preference because everything i have and need is at home. although i’d rather be spending it in vancity, i can’t deny it was a good experience with scatters of good time. sitting next to my big boss for my birthday dinner is definitely a one of a kind experience. he had a lot of interesting insights and life advice after having a few drinks. time is flying by so quickly; celebrating getting another year older with sushi delicacy, drinks and a surprise dessert

day 1286 – ice level 

almost two weeks since my last chicks game but there’s two late ones scheduled this week. we had a terribly short bench rolling with two lines; that means more ice time for all. i felt i should’ve played better but was too gased by the third period. it’s scary how fast my rookie season has gone by; it’s nearing the end of the season and playoffs are just around the corner

30 share it series [one]

so december has arrived and that means the calendar year is coming to a close. kicking off december satisfying my sushi craving after a long day. we had to scrap the original plan because the restaurant of our choice was way too busy, but this sushi place isn’t half bad either. the only drawback is having hot air consistent blowing directly in my face throughout the whole dinner. really pushing hard now and wanting to finish the year on a good note to set the tone for 2017
