day 1625 – surf and turf


throw it back to the days of summer and when expeditions brought us tight. those were the days the gang would get together to go out in the middle of the sea to do weird things. that one summer i wakesurfed, wakeboard, paddle board, kayaked and canoed. as a kid i loved the water, until it became bitterness for something i couldn’t fulfill. it’s time i get back into it and revisit what i grew up doing. summer is months away, but i have some plans up my sleeve to cross off things on my bucket list

day 844 – want you back

image

the sun may be out but it’s the coldest day thus far. for the first time this season the thermometer in my car dropped below zero. am i ever missing summer and the warmth the sun provides. we are only two months removed from the best season for water activities, i am already missing it dearly. times when i don’t need to wear sweaters outside and still freeze within a matter of seconds.  times when i don’t have to bring an umbrella and still be soaked after walking a block

day 769 – just surfing

spending labour day on the water going for my second bout of wakeboarding and first bout for wakesurfing. much more enjoyable than the first spending much more time on the water instead of in the water. was unsure if it would be fun in the freezing cold water, but the wet suits made it alright. good way to close off an adventure-filled summer and probably marks the end of a season and the coming of fall. and maybe, just maybe, next summer i will be learning how to flip and do tricks for surfing. sad to see summer go but it was fun while it lasted, until next time!!

day 753 – rainy forecast

hope the weather forecast is not correct but if it is, the end of august could be bringing us some rain. i know we’ve had a drought this summer and i know we need to have water in order to survive, but i am still not thrilled to see the rain come back. not finished with tennis, hiking, water sports or numerous outdoor activities which all requires the sun to cooperate

resolution series: [four] passion

image

twenties is often said to be prime time. it’s important time to figure out what you love and where your passion is at. if you don’t enjoy what you are doing, probably means it is time to rethink and explore your options. life is too short to dwell on what you must do on a daily basis, makes getting up every morning that much harder. it might be scary to realize you no longer love what you are currently doing, but it is better than realizing that now than in the next decade of your life. it may look like i knew what i wanted and where i was headed all along, but that’s not the case. it started off that way, but things change over time and sometimes the path may not be what you expected it to be. there are things i am certain about but there’s also a few things i have yet to figure out. i have a lot of self doubts and there’s no question i am afraid of failing to achieve what i set out to do, but it’s something i am working on. slowly but surely, i am beginning to find all the pieces to what i consider happiness. i like to travel, i like to eat, i like my gadget, i like the people i am surrounded by, and there’s no better place to live and do all that other than vancouver. i couldn’t be more certain about my passion and love for sports. being active is something i pride upon and definitely cannot live without. so no matter how many times i get injured or break myself, it doesn’t stop me from getting back at it even if everyone doesn’t agree with me. no matter what you do, do it with passion. life is a long journey, so make it worthwhile
