day 2038 – design brunch

we’re overdue for a group activity so we’re treated to a design brunch at comina. we took advantage of the nice day out and walked around steveston area and fisherman’s wharf before heading back to work. some bought plants, a few grabbed mini donuts, and many grabbed coffee during our ‘free’ time. sometimes a breath of fresh air relieves some stress and pulls us out of a things we shouldn’t be caught up with

day 2003 – disney days

on the theme of throwbacks, i go back to my university graduation trip with highschool friends to los angeles disneyland. even though i traveled with the team to basketball tournaments, this would be my first real trip with friends that included taking a flight. the six of us had a lot of fun at at theme parks of disneyland and hollywood, and beaches of california. so  much fun we narrowly caught our flight back home from seatac airport. i consider this a treat for myself after having gone through two intensive years in ends program

day 1784 Рtrenta 

my first ever starbucks trenta sized drink seems to be justified by the hot and stale vancouver weather. must replenish all the water lost and used during the after-work bootcamp. holding that ginormous matcha lemonade in one hand while melting underneath my sweaty workout clothes. even though there’s a heat wave and my car thermometer reads thirty plus, i still roll down my windows instead of wasting gas on air conditioning

day 1736 – appas and dongsaeng

and so the birthday celebration begins. taken out to lunch by colleague for shared birthday meal with an appa. the two appas and two dongsaengs gotten close because we’re late eating buddies. the four of us going all the way out to mr black for long lunch; i’ll probably end up working through tomorrow’s lunch. their menu features much fried katsu of all meats, but going out of my norm is acceptable once in a while. the decor was nice and food was decent, but kind of pricey if everything was regular priced. it was quite evident that traffic wasn’t very high at all

day 1474 – serious dessert

line ups for premium ice cream shops are always this long, but if we always turn around like we did last time, i’ll never get to try any of them. my whiskey hazelnut and london fog double scoop cone was worth my wait. it was not a bad sunday, but i would see the norm every so often and wonder why it’s not like that for me. that thorn will be inevitable, for as long as it’s not addressed it will be a reminder of what hurts

treated to a lunch by my student because she wanted to give me a christmas present but didn’t know what to buy. it was very sweet of her but i’m happy to take her out. i made her make sure there’s no onions and no green onions in my dish. it’s bizarre she’s so scared of me, yet she likes me and always wants to hang out with me. that logic is puzzling, but i must be doing something right

day 1225 – delivery

as a treat for finishing my semester, i am delivered a sushi dinner. i was majorly stressed and overworked leading up to this day, but i am relieved of my duties of and sharing my happiness together. i haven’t had time to even sit at my desk chir much so i am really looking forward to going back to some routines. on the top of my priorities is sleep and a long, long to do list to catch up with
