day 1533 – blistered pinkies

it didn’t feel this bad when i went to bed, but certainly erupted overnight. it never occurred to me tying copious amount of skate laces would result in blistered pinkies. really tempted to pop the two blisters on both my hands. i hope the water bubble goes away soon because it’s presence is felt when writing and typing. i still remember two years ago on this day i bruised my eye from a back flip attempt. how time has flown by and i’ve been missing the flipping more and more and thought about going back

day 1501 – bone buldge

the bruising on this left foot is looking worse than hours before. i couldn’t put on skates today but that wouldn’t have mattered anyway as i’m way too sore from too much activities yesterday. maximal soreness results in minimal movements; my back ached, my calves tight, my hip flexor restricting, my foot and shin bruised and my si joint problems still persist. the soreness isn’t a big issue, it’s the persisting joint pain and abnormal bruising that worries me

day 1483 – gstringers bonder 

took us long enough to finally have our gstrings season end get together. partying at eastside crafthouse thanks to our spirit award gift certificate. for those of us on the team who are straight, the conversation got really awkward at times and even uncomfortable; it’s never a dull moment with these girls. it’s a long off season but we’ll be returning next season to kick some more butts

day 1304 – crummy friday 

it doesn’t take much time make me feel crummy – just a sleeplessness night and some unjust comments. i couldn’t stop thinking about it and how it made me more uncomfortable. what’s also uncomfortable is my hip, glute and now my quad from the bench fall. somehow i’ll have to get through this thirteen hour work day in a fifteen hour span. i can only convince myself it’s good to be friday although i’ll spend my weekend at taekwondo too

day 1206 – dogphobia

image

for all the years, i refused to be in the same house as any four legged animal. i made an exception for one of my closest buddy tonight because it was for her housewarming party. i think it sensed the fear because it was always hovering around me in proximity and came into contact far too many times; too close for comfort. despite that, it was a great night chilling with lifelong friends forever known as underconstruction crew

day 879 – fisting

image

for the first time in two weeks, i can finally fully close my hand to make a fist. it’s by no means comfortable in that position and it’s trying to resist that motion, but just being able to do so painfree is a huge breakthrough. fifteen days of not being able to close my hand cost me many days of missed but necessary training. even though my gyming continued, lots had to be forfeited or altered to compensate for the finger. i never realized how essential fisting was, but it became hard learned knowledge

day 683 – big teddy

image

poor big teddy’s arms and legs all tangled up and doesn’t look one bit comfortable. i would rather be sitting where big teddy is, away from the deafening chinese oldies karaoke. it’s another one of those richmond community dinners where we get dragged into listening to endless speeches which doesn’t even apply to us. the most difficult part being we also had to compete with the loud speakers and singing to carry out our meeting, which ended up to be more of a yelling match
