day 2457 – packed parking

just trying to get to the gym after work and the parking lot was jam packed. i normally don’t go to the is location after work since i’d be in richmond, but today was different because i worked from home. once i got into the gym finally, the whole gym was so crowded i couldn’t really do everything that i wanted before i took off. it’s a combination of rush hour and resolutioners that made this place so full and uninviting. i’ll only come to this location during off peak hours

day 2288 – traffic nightmare

a traffic nightmare at ironwood intersection after work. some coworkers decided not to wait in line and went to the riverside, others walked to the plaza for dinner. i on the other hand waited in line and was trapped for over forty minutes before i got onto number five road. instead of waiting more at knight bridge, i went straight to the gym to do an upper body workout instead

day 2271 – out of reach

i once wrote this list of things i wanted to drill and moves that i want to have. it was something i needed to keep myself accountable while chasing these moves, but none of this is happening and not sure if i’ll ever be able to get back to drilling anything. honest to god, it’s really wearing on me and some days i cry myself to sleep knowing i may never be able to achieve any of these goals. i’m going to put up a fight, knowing so

day 2195 – walk in clinic

as much as i didn’t want to go back to work after a long weekend, i was less happy to be spending three and a half hours at a walk in clinic waiting for both the doctor and pharmacy. the mosquito bite flared up so bad overnight i didn’t get any sleep. i got up in the middle of the night to apply and reapply the hydrocortisone. when i woke up, my leg was so red and swelled up it no longer looked like a leg. the doctor prescribed the same antibiotics as last time. i guess that’s what i get for not finishing it last time

day 2030 – coffee run

doing an afternoon zero waste starbucks coffee run with the girls. i need the caffeine to keep my awake, but it’s also making my headache worse. still went to flipping afterwards and both my kicks and flips were on point. another disappointment and another day missed on landing my roundoff back tuck. given that my roundoff was better than ever before, i thought i’d land it today and my coaches did too. the hopes of doing so slowly slipped way from me and i started to get discouraged. disappointed i came short again and will have to wait for next time

day 1942 – drop top

another visit to my fanling grandma before paying a visit to my beloved grandpa. although on map nothing in hong kong is far in distance, it takes an hour for commute. it’s the required walking, constantly crowds, unpredictable waiting and endless traffic that adds up. what a pleasant surprise my uncle offered to take me for a spin in his mazda convertible. i would’ve wanted to drive it if it wasn’t manual transmission

day 1441 – autowest 

i brought my german toy into annual maintenance for oil change. upon sitting down with the service advisor, he advised a few more parts to be upgraded or will soon need to be replaced, each item ranging from a couple hundred bucks to seven hundred. i’ll wait on those and in the meantime consult other technicians for professional opinion before making any decisions
