day 2229 – safety meeting

health and safety meeting during lunch means i don’t get any break to take my mind off work related stuff. it was a long one since we have to go through and revise the standard first aid procedure. the company provided lunch is all carbs today – pasta and garlic bread from pizza hut. i eat very healthy at the office, but the company lunches don’t really fit in my macro

day 2127 – afternoon tea

this would be my very first afternoon tea of my life and i must say it’s one expensive meal. i enjoyed the food, but it was a lot of pastry and sweets to take in for one sitting and i left feeling unusually bloated. the delicacy is way too much for my stomach and wallet to enjoy. the calories intake is defiitely something i can’t afford anymore often than once a year. i don’t know what constitutes a good afternoon tea, but i’m not one to look too deeply into it. starting to have traces of missing home

day 2037 – pink shirt day

wearing pink pants to the office to support anti-bullying day. this is one of the few times i will voluntarily wear something so bright because it’s a movement closer to my heart. i’ve been bullied in parts of my childhood because i was small and timid. as a result, i would not look like i can defend or stand up for myself. i guess that explains why i keep things inside my heart and my mind, and that’s developed a shell designed to protect my myself from danger

day 1971 – fried chicken

img_20200130_2039418665489946250221874.jpgit’s crazy to say that it’s my first time eating fried chicken since highschool. i normally refrain from fried foods; i made an exception today not only because it is the holiday week, but also because i’ve never tasted the korean fried chicken everyone boasts about. it tasted delicious as expected, and the crunchiness between my teeth was also to a high level of satisfaction. i don’t know when i’ll have it again, so i’ll savour every lasting flavour of the fried chicken dipped into the zesty sweet and sour sauce

day 1837 – work hours

what has my work hours become better be temporary. i’m on my work laptop saturday night hammering out some project work after my teaching shift. i pulled out the laptop thinking i’ll get some work done. what was intended to be a one hour thing soon became a four hour thing. i’m burnt out from the amount a work a week because over sixty five hours just isn’t normal nor healthy

day 1814 – potato wedges

img_20200130_2133103170956927204688666.jpga great win for the team as we strung together six solid innings to win by seven. timely defensive plays helped keep everyone in the game including my first time ever gunning out someone at home plate. spontaneity got the better part of me today as i was driving home after my game. it wasn’t great but wasn’t bad either and i wished i saved my quota for good poutinery found in downtown. i didn’t finish the whole thing but at least i can say i’ve tasted the timmy’s poutine

day 1649 – poutinery


my once in a year poutine fulfilled at fishstick cypress bonder. basically the only time i ever have a legitimate reason to eat poutine because of the things served there, it’s the best bang for your buck. to be fair, the output spent skiing likely cancels out the amount this bowl contains. the weather in the morning was wet and foggy when we were up at the skychair, but the skies cleared up as the afternoon rolled around. we went at a moderately fast pace when everyone had relatively good skill level. my best guess is we went through over dozen runs and by the end my legs were pretty tired. the wipeout near the end was a pretty big jolt to my neck and back 

day 1644 – bayside dineout


i was quite reluctant to join in on the dineout vancouver festival, but mom insisted on taking visiting relatives out to a special dinner. aside from the lone boring topic that bored me to death, the dineout menu was actually quite good. i especially liked my appetizer of ahi tuna with mango and avocado. it’s apparent i can never get tired of eating salmon. the striploin steak wasn’t bad but i couldn’t finish as usual but got help as usual. the eating as gone awry over the last few weeks and it has to stop immediately. i told myself after this meal, i’ll gear down and be much more disciplined with my eating 

day 1573 – unravel

not the typical day i thought it would be at work. i thought i would go about my own business and keep my composure just as i’ve always done, but i unraveled in a hurry. i refused to bring my personal life to work and need not to explain the battles i fight. i was in pure frustration to hear people who have no idea what i’m going through make ignorant assumptions and go as far as using ‘abusing rights’. i never want to unload any of my problems on anyone cause i believed i’m tough enough to shoulder my own burden. clearly i haven’t said enough; hr and manager are asking to be let in on things i bottled up for much too long. they want to be my outlet and they want me to know i can let them in

day 1545 – shrinking fast

i was so curious to see what was going on underneath the tensor band and fiberglass. the doctor at checkup reminded me to be a good patient; clearly, he had a good reason to remind me. thinking it’s okay to unwrap it for a couple hours while i’m working from home. it’s unhealthy skin tone with wrinkly dead skin was an unpleasant sight. after not using it for over just two weeks, my left wrist is shrinking big time. i am very worried that after my six weeks is up, there will be nothing left in my arm and i won’t have any muscles left
