day 2282 – allan mcgavin

starting off november with some good news. four days, five clinics and seven physicians later, i finally have my name on the long mri waitlist. back at the ubc allan mcgavin sports clinic again, this time the sports medicine doctor deems that mri is now a necessity. i’ve been needing this referral for eight months. the two doctors did a bunch of assessements on my foot and deduced the idea of a bone breakage. although a liagment issue isn’t easier to deal with, it’s a relief to know i can ditch the aircast

day 2264 – scooter ride

just because the sun was still out, we did a spontaneous trip out with scooter rentals. i must admit i was nervous since i’ve never ridden a scotter in my life and haven’t ridden a bike in years. we rode it from the shop in mount pleasant to ubc, taking all the bike routes possible. i stayed pretty safe for the most part with the exception of putting my foot down while trying to stop at top speed. that really did it for my knee and i couldn’t put much weight on it afterwards. it was a really fun experience and this checks off one item off my bucket list. though next time i know to layer up because it got really chilly

day 2243 – new ubc

its my first day off for the compressed work schedule. i haven’t been back to ubc in years; the campus seemed so familiar yet unfamiliar. lots changed since my graduation but memories will stay forever. the appointment i waited to get with the sports medicine doctor since march was a disappointment and a total waste of my time. he delivered the worst news i could possibly get by telling there’s nothing he could do if now. he followed that up by saying had he seen me right after the injury, he would have suggested putting it in a boot to help the recovery. i was outraged when i heard that because i had been on the stupid waitlist for six months

day 890 – campus grounds

i am only here because ubc can’t get it together, therefore i had to step in to put that all back into order. the campus that had it all, where lots of joy, sadness, laughter, tears, stresses and surprises collided to create lasting memories. having a nostalgic moment with the siting of irving. the brief visit was more so sprinting around trying to find answers and solutions to problems that shouldn’t have been problems to begin with

day 421 – sala series

image

as school term wears on and everything goes into full swing, my busy life schedule and commitments are tearing me apart like no tomorrow. already feeling so stressed and so worn out from the busyness and even been feeling unwell all week but haven’t got the time to see the doctor. not that i would choose to go to a doctor unless i am dying in some form

day 166 – legit

this is the all important stamp and seal that makes my university official transcript, official. after a long haul consisting of many mixed emotions and stressful period, i have retrieved and collected the long list of required documents and printed my portfolio, now i am finally ready to send out my package

day 165 – good to be back

back on ubc campus on a sunday for the first time in a long time to attend ubc sala thesis event. nice to be back in familiar ground and be a part of some thesis reviews to see many familiar faces. reminds me a lot of what ends was all about but must say it was a strange feeling
