day 2191 – free friday

the day after making personal records deserves a bit of a rest. i still went to flightclub because i wanted to flip, but taking it easy on the training as my body works to recover. i let my body decide what it can do and didn’t push to do too much on the floor. i still did some x-out practice and ninja landing onto the blue mat. the rest of the evening was a chill one. even though i don’t have much planned, i was just glad to get the bc day long weekend started

day 2171 – late comer

i arrived extremely late for civil war and it was almost like a gear up speed test to get onto the ice in time for the second shift. i was close to not going to hockey at all because i had been tied up with taekwondo, tired from an extra long shift of teaching and just tired in general. somehow, i got convinced and pressured to show up; i guess better late than never. i had to book it home after our ice time because i’m expecting to wake up at 6am tomorrow

day 2157 – civil appearance

after three weeks of vacation, and two weeks of bailing due to unforeseen circumstances, i’m making my appearance back at civil war. i was worried i wouldn’t remember how to gear up or how to skate. to be honest, my legs were gassed halfway through the ice time. living proof that there are some things you don’t forget once you learn, but there are things that will feel slow and be out of shape after a while. i understand why people could puke first day back after some time. it’s a good feeling to be back on the ice, i’m sure my legs will have some affect tomorrow

day 2143 – short day

it was an unexpectedly short saturday compared to any of my normal. i woke up for a chiropractor appointment, taught taekwondo classes, had dinner with parents and passed out before 9pm. i couldn’t even stay awake sitting, so i had to bail on hockey last minute which i felt really bad about. i guess the combination of jetlag, crazy late friday night, early saturday morning and a tiring solo teaching shift got the best of me

day 2142 – party in downtown

i was tired coming back from lengthy vacation and everything that happened at work. although i showed up fashionably late, it’s still important that i make an appearance at a birthday party. saw everyone from squirtle whom i haven’t seen for almost a month, had a drink and left charles bar extremely tired. i didn’t get home until 3am, i can’t imagine waking up for my appointment tomorrow morning

day 2138 – iceland stint

second stint in iceland after touring all the europe cities. this time within the twenty six hour layover, i drove nearly five hours to complete the golden circle check points. i was fortunate to catch one of the geyser’s eruption on camera. also saw a a few waterfalls and craters. i’m tired after an overnight bus from paris to london and a flight from london to iceland. i was definitely looking forward to the late instant noodles dinner back at the airbnb

day 2131 – amsterdam centraal

we added another country to our list by making an impromtu day trip out to amsterdam. it wasn’t a bad idea until we realized a two and a half hour train ride, one way, is actually painfully long. during the day, we almost melted because we were basically outdoor all day and it was thirty one degrees at one point. the city had a lot of historic buildings, bikes, canals and floating flower markets. it was a nice place to take photos and enjoy the scenic walk
