day 2345 – hockey rust

making my first squirtle appearance since the many damages that started in october. the rust on the ice was real and it didn’t help that we’ve been tiered up. the score was very lopsided even though my team got many shots of goal. my line had plenty of good chances, but couldn’t bury any. after gearing off, i rushed back to flightclub for board games night. i didn’t stay until the end, but even then it was already past 2am and i’ve been up for close to twenty one hours

day 2344 – work and play time

second day of the year and already back at the office seems kind of cruel. it was extremely difficult to wake up given my sleeping schedule was thrown off during the holidays. the tiny human was also back at the office and hung out at my desk because school doesn’t resume until next monday. when she was watching her spongebob show, she cooperates and stays busy. if she didn’t occupy herself, she wouldn’t be allow to stay at my desk. i’ll miss her after this week, but will still see her during my saturday taekwondo

day 2320 – low life

sleepless on a sunday night does not bode well for monday morning. i needed a coffee first thing when i got into work. i couldn’t help but stay awake thinking and overthinking of all the things i may have to give up. i can’t stop myself from crying thinking my life as an athlete could come to an abrupt end. i hadn’t done all that i wanted to accomplish and i clearly hadn’t expected it to approach so soon. i can’t stand to open up and tell many of my injury status so keeping it to myself was my next best option

day 2298 – room bound

sadly, i slept in and missed the raptors limited edition shoe launch. spent majority of the time at home and mostly in my room because i don’t want to get anyone in my family sick. it’s been a really weird and rough stretch for me the past few weeks. i’ve dealt with a foot injury where after six assessments by different physicians, the final diagnosis is still u determine to date. yet, i still am restricted to basically not do anything i usually do. i’m now trapped with this sickness tagged as bronchitis, but i also have a cold and both combined keeps me up coughing all night long, and gives me a headache when i’m not in bed

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
