day 2096 – cardiac pulmonary resuscitation

even though my current license doesn’t expire until next year, i decided to join in on a full day first aid course at richmond martial arts. i overslept and woke up late for the course, but good thing i only missed the introductions. not a lot changed since my previous first aid workshop and swimming lifeguarding courses, but that’s not to say there isn’t. it’s good to stay on top of these courses because there’s a few surprising changes to the cpr procedures. i was too drained to trick tonight, but i did manage to do some shopping at sportchek

day 2074 – killarney class

my weekly saturday ritual consists of teaching at killarney and the new civil war season that just started up again. it was crazy hectic today,  for it was the first class of the term, preparing students for belt test while teaching with two less instructors. it’s true my work week doesn’t really end of friday, and sometimes doesn’t even end of sunday. i enjoy teaching, but weeks like this i do need a break in between before another work week begins

day 2049 – containing

the weekend was nonexistent and it’s back to work for another week. i contemplated if i should go or skip flipping because my stomach wasn’t feeling good and was so tired from the weekend activities. i went in the end thinking i’ll take it as it comes. it wasn’t too bad since i got a chance to practice my cheat kicks and of course some random front tucks and back tucks

day 1837 – work hours

what has my work hours become better be temporary. i’m on my work laptop saturday night hammering out some project work after my teaching shift. i pulled out the laptop thinking i’ll get some work done. what was intended to be a one hour thing soon became a four hour thing. i’m burnt out from the amount a work a week because over sixty five hours just isn’t normal nor healthy

day 1579 – sunday workday

it started off having a laid back sunday morning before getting into work. good that i don’t have a 7:30am start on sunday as well so i could sleep in a little after a late night of partying. had no urgency to sleep after a night like this, but once in a while is okay. worked another blackbelt test and the rest of my time spent completing a bunch of modules. banking these extra hours hopefully to pay off and gets accredited for in the future

day 1572 – promotion test

after calling out the test for one hundred and thirty students, i get some well deserved mat time. it was insane for me to lead every individual group from white to red belt, more talking than i would do in a whole week. it was more oa test for me than the students as fifties and sixties is the normal range. i don’t think i’ll survive another one of these tests alone so another instructor better step up soon. got home after some window shopping and a long promotion test in time to have my first meal of the day just shy of nine o’clock

day 1557 – karaoke party

the start of saturday morning shifts has begun so i’ll be working nine straight hours on saturdays between two jobs. i wonder how long i will last with sixty four hour work weeks before i burn out. i was tired after the two shifts but doesn’t change my plans for an impromptu karaoke and board games night. i had a good night chilling with peeps. it was the fun i used to have; the good company kept from thinking why i’m still feeling solo all the time. it’s not a good feeling to always never have the support of the closest ones. i miss the times when i could be out way past midnight and actually have a night life
