day 1915 – hockey is back

it’s good to be back at the rink after missing the past few hockey games due to overlapping schedule. i was afraid i’d be slow coming out of the gate but i held up and even registered an assist. the scoresheet isn’t really an accurate representation of the high scoring game. it was a fun game but man i’m tired from invigilating a blackbelt test that went wrong in far too many ways. being put in the spot to do something i haven’t practiced in three years isn’t exactly cool. good thing i managed to do it and come out unscathed

day 1870 – fishstick opener

watching the zamboni clean the ice before the fishsticks season opener. it’s a late game but i’ll play the game and hope that i get some shut eye before i go to work. happy to report i recorded my first point of the season with a three-two win for the team. majority of the roster remains the same as last with the addition of four players. i like it in the current tier and hope we don’t get tiered up

day 1515 – vachl debut

my legs hates me for pushing it so hard so often but here i am excited to be playing my first game with new vachl teammates. the bench was short but it was a lot fun and i made some good plays plus shots of goal. the game was fun and the pace is similar to what i’m used to so no big adjustments needed. i’m expecting myself to make great improvements this season and take my game to the next level. next game mental note to self i need to bring hockey socks, replenish hockey bag with tape supply, and find time to sharpen skates. it’s inexcusable i failed to have those necessities done for today

vachl evaluation day for us new league players to be placed on teams. we skated through a number of skating and stick handling drills before a scrimmage. it was all pretty standard; was hoping my pregame workout didn’t tire out my legs as much. slightly shaken after a goalie poke check inadvertently speared me in the ribs but two breakaway goals to be happy about. it’s the first time mo decided show up to any of my hockey action; i thought i did fairly well for the most part. a subtle elated feeling to see that he can be there sometimes, even if he was only there for the hockey

taking advantage of the sunshine and the last of my weekends for an extended period of time. my schedule is booked all the way every weekend until january 2015. feeling sleep deprived after being up until 3:30am last night, no wonder i passed out on the couch before dinner time. it’s an uphill battle from here on. it will be interesting to see how will my life change and how will i hold up

recent mini crisis has got me into deep thoughts and considerations on many things about attitude towards things and perspective on life. perhaps a change is in the order¬†after i am set on doing what it takes to get to where i want to go in life.¬†starts with taking little steps forward and setting goals towards something much bigger, it’s all about progression
