day 1413 – patch process 

after several weeks of being down, i’m still trying to come around to patch all my negative thoughts. during this period, i notice pessimism is still pretty high and emotionally weakened until patchwork is further along the way. thoughts still pour in when i see things unfold in front of me that i could only envy and wished that could be me. i don’t want to stay a negative person because it’s affecting me all around. the process is slow and somehow i’m still hesitant to speak as much


day 844 – want you back


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 550 – should be there


a friend sent me this gorgeous view today. i should be there with her enjoying the snow on big white this weekend, but sadly i am not. instead, screw ups and lack of communication made me drop my plans and left me stuck in vancouver doing my usual routine plus another standard instructor seminar. i am not content to let winter season pass by without having gone up the mountain for some skiing

day 256 – moola


the stack of money i collected from killarney students purchasing uniforms and equipment this weekend. too bad none of this stack of bills is for me or i would be a wealthy person. don’t mind if i go shopping with this stash and buy everything on my wish list that my wallet cannot support

day 76 – shot shot shot


brought home another shot glass to add to my collection to keep track of my travels and destinations. my hope is i will eventually have a big enough collection to store shot glasses from all my travels around the world. it is probably easier to go to bed and dream about it because in reality i might end up in debt
