day 1995 – ten year challenge

i was browsing around in old photo albums to complete the ten year challenge. i certainly had a good laugh when i saw the things i did and what was considered ‘in’ at that time. it wasn’t easy finding pictures from ten years ago since digital photography wasn’t as developed then. not much has changed since, just lost my glasses and baby fat and gave up the bangs that took way too long to grow out. it was a hit in hong kong back then, but i don’t know if i’d ever want bangs again

day 1904 – pastimes

one of my long term past time is training for poomsae competitions. though it’s over a year since i stepped on the big stage, i still spend a great deal of time coaching competition. there were times when thought i was done with taekwondo, but every time i try to step away i somehow get pulled back in. the debate is do i still have one last one in me. after my mentor and friends departed, i no longer have as much drive as a competitor to shoulder all the responsibilities

day 1750 – suspending

that time playing on friend’s rings trying calisthenic moves while waiting for our carpool. i still remember we met up at midnight to do a red eye drive down to portland competition. the good old times when i am still active in the competition world, training and coaching at the same time. those days are gone and i no longer have the same competition goals anymore; maybe i finally realize it’s time to let go so my broken body won’t get anymore broken
