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 1749 – expensive fuel

i can’t believe my eyes when the pump ejected my receipt. one full fill up now cost me eight nine cents short of a hundred. the cost of living in vancouver has gone up so much in both driving and living. it used to cost mid eighties for one tank of gas, now it’s almost triple digits. condos are so out of reach, it makes saving up for a down payment next to impossible. it makes me wonder what steps are required to follow the skyrocketing market in order for my generation to settle in vancouver

day 1722 – petrol prices


it takes over ninety to fill up my shadow. the price to pay for one tank of gasoline is already way too high and there’s talk that it’s on the rise. i love my car and the flexibility of going to places anytime. there’s no way i’d give up driving, but doesn’t mean i’ll stop complaining about the high vancouver oil price. i don’t look forward to paying triple digits for on tank of gas

day 1697 – shoe gallery

as part of spring cleaning, i machined ashed some of my shoes thinking it could be fried since it’s nice out. who knew there would be sporadic callings of hail nearing the end of march. enough of the cold wintery weather, i’m ready for some nicer and warmer temperatures. i would like to get out more this spring and summer, especially more tennis and hiking than i managed last year

day 1668 – weathering


the cold vancouver winter is quite frightful and unpleasant for my shadow. the weather forecast has issued a heavy snowfall warning that starts at 6am. i don’t enjoy the snow on city roads because i’m slipping and skidding everywhere. the sight lines up at the mountain is a much better view. it’s making me think back on the warm summer days when i would be outdoor without frozen fingers

day 1582 Рkurios 

cirque du soleil once again proves it’s entertainment at its best. a little under the weather but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to good seats for kurios. it was a display of amazing acrobatic skills that took me through time warp and challenged my perceptions. this would be one of the better cirque shows i’ve seen so far. kooza, zarkana, totem, ka, toruk, and now kurios, i have never been disappointed walking out of their shows. each time i witness something different that is mind blowing

day 1537 – air

perhaps i might be better off if i never even bothered waking up and getting out of bed after an uneasy night. i did a lot of thinking and reflecting in the past waking hours of why i have to suffer through what doesn’t even treat me right. so many questions in my head left unquestioned notably how i’m going to continue onward. realizing this is the time to figure out what everything means to me and what i’m worth to others. went through the day with no emotions and a big void inside. surprisingly didn’t even see a drop of tear; maybe my tears went dry, or maybe i learn to block out feelings as if i had none
