day 1184 – oregon venue

image

teammates and i arrived at the oregon venue after a red-eye drive. my day and night is all mixed up after being up for so long; first real meal of the day was past 3pm. i had points of starvation and points of food overload, which can’t be good at all. competitors from different countries are checked in including canada, united states, mexico, guatemala and ecuador. we did a little bit of everything today including homework, practice, meeting, eat and grocery shop. tomorrow is the big day for some of my teammates. for the first time in quite a while, i won’t be fighting with them on the same mat, but i’ll be cheering them on from the side

day 617 – swept it

i know they just restocked but i literally swept their shelves clean of their snack bars. will be extremely hectic in the upcoming weeks; no time for real meals where everything is on the go, so loading up while supplies last. they will be of high demand while i go through this phase and i will have to adjust to them. at least these don’t taste like cardboard or else it would be really rough and i might starve to death. busy life doesn’t make any excuses for not eating or going for fast food, i still try to get my protein in

day 236 – crime scene

walmart parking lot was filled with caution tape, twenty police cars, ambulances, fire trucks and eight smashed cars. some bystanders and walmart employees claimed one crazy driver intentionally smashed into eight different cars, thought these scenes only happen in movies. good thing i arrived after this all happened
