one thousand two hundred odd kilometres later, i have made another loop around portland. road trips are meant to be fun but don’t realize how tiring it can be until i get home. intake was upped significantly during the vacation days, i must once again put on eating restraints; maybe i don’t mind having eating disorder again. it’s good to be back home sleeping on my own bed even if it feels like a sauna
the planning committee put together an amazing summer bbq party that includes photo booth, contests, games, prizes and food trucks. of the many events and activities that we had, tug of war was the main event because a trophy was on the line. today was a good day despite a slip up in my eating. my manager couldn’t have picked a better day to inform me of my increased salary. it was so good to hear that he has fought for my compensation in return for my hardwork; he wasn’t kidding when he told me to stick by him, he’ll take me higher and make it worthwhile for me
my mom prepared way too much food for the lunar chinese new year hotpot. it was a good dinner to close off the year and i’m looking to continue my workaholic ways in the year of the rooster; this is the time work extra hard. i’m stuffed but we did not even clear half the amount of food on this table, so i expect to have another hotpot this weekend. i don’t like the feeling of feeling bad for having eaten
doing an lunch hotpot and gaming get together with a few hamber buddies. i haven’t had the opportunity to chill with friends since i’ve had a hectic schedule. spent several hours catching up and gaming before i had to head out for skating and then a pregame warmup. i brought my favourites to the hotpot: fish tofu along with some fish balls, enoki and shirataki, but who shows up to a hotpot with carrot and celery sticks??
all my favourite dishes were on the dinner table because i’m finally home for dinner on last day before parents leave for mexico. it’s her way of saying it’s good to have me home for dinner for once. it was a great homecooked meal; i enjoyed every dish and stuffed myself too much. i have yet to get back on track with eating the way i would like to and that needs to be done starting tomorrow. now that she’s going on vacation, i might as well not cook to solve that problem
friday night exec party that had a lot of bubble tea, a fridge full of liquor and enough food to serve a village. it was a rdl bonder and a chance for seasoned execs to get to know the new execs. it’s meant to be a party, but we still had an agenda and basic housekeeping things to go through. we started off watching some playoff footage while eating. then the discussion took most of the night before the gaming and drinking began
adding another star to my name after tonight’s game. had good ice time and fought hard for that hat. i’ll be first to admit i wasn’t fully ready for tonight’s game after eating at gyu kaku with fellow rdl execs, but still got it done. this meeting is more of a celebratory dinner to appreciate everyone’s effort, carrying their own weight and make it another smooth season. it got wild in a hurry when we realized we ordered too much drinks and had to chug the rest down. i was on my best behaviour for the better part considering the amount of food presented in front of me, but even then the amount put into my stomach makes me feel way too fat
