day 2250 – morning struggles

i’ve never been a morning person and i don’t know if i’ll ever be converted. waking up at 6am is always so hard, especially if i don’t climb into bed before 1am. trying to stay afloat with coffee and egg bites this morning morning. i won’t even get a chance to take a power nap before flipping tonight but i’ll do whatever i can. it’s crazy how september has flown by and we’re on the thirtieth of the month

day 2236 – interiors

tired monday still trying to recover from the sleepless night at harrison. i got to work a little tardy but i didn’t really care. brother and sister in law has been sending pictures back to keep us posted on their vacation. this particular headboard interested me because it’s quite different than what i usually see. i believe him and his wife are currently in barcelona. they seem like they’re having lots of fun overseas

day 2226 – squirtle girls

friday night squirtle squad games are back in session. since i’m just part timing this season, i get to be a forward. my line was in the attacking zone for the most part but we lack some chemistry. we didn’t win today but it’s really good to see the squirtle faces again because we always have a good time in the change room. i even did a back flip inside after the game. i’m starting to not be too selective with my surfaces which i’m assuming is a good sign

day 2221 – dojo obliged

wasn’t too thrilled on working this quarter’s blackbelt test being well aware that i’ll be a long one. the test didn’t finish until 9:45pm and i walked out with many more cuts, scrapes and bruises from holding for all the board breaking misses. still, i headed to open gym without food because i said i would be there. i did some x-outs and reviewed some poomsaes before i called it a day. i couldn’t join the gang for late night food because i’ll need the energy for a full day ahead of me. this can’t be over soon enough; my soul needs a break

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
