day 2270 – stay home sunday

stayed home originally thinking i’d be lazy, but turns out to be a work afternoon. i finished the much delayed payrolls for terms of killarney because someone complained about class reserve distribution. the email chain started getting out of hand and in turn made me even more agitated. i checked the spreadsheet and all is good to go until he makes other complaints. at least i got off my plate and onto better things

day 2269 – broken teacher

trying to teach all the classes being on less than one foot combined. my left didn’t work well before and now my right is heavily crippled. capping off the last class of the shift with the poomsae competition team. surprisingly made it through the whole shift without having to demonstrate any kick at full speed or full power. it helps that all classes went smoothly and all except the first class came ready to learn

day 2260 – girls catchup

long overdue catchup for the girls. even though we’re all in different companies now, we’re still able to maintain connection. i think not being in the same departments made it more fun when sharing the information we know. sometimes when i hear what they say about their new job, it makes me wonder why i’m still at this company. i don’t necessary care for the spotlight, but it’s having my production goes unnoticed and often taken for granted

day 2250 – morning struggles

i’ve never been a morning person and i don’t know if i’ll ever be converted. waking up at 6am is always so hard, especially if i don’t climb into bed before 1am. trying to stay afloat with coffee and egg bites this morning morning. i won’t even get a chance to take a power nap before flipping tonight but i’ll do whatever i can. it’s crazy how september has flown by and we’re on the thirtieth of the month

day 2249 – testers and testees

i never kept track of the number of promotion tests i’ve led, but if i had to make a guess, it would over fifty. done another colour belt tes today before heading out to flightclub. i almost didn’t make it out to open gym because i joined them for an spontaneous dinner. i still ended up going, and worked on some back handsprings drills which i found quite insightful. i stayed until the end of the open gym, i’m going to be super tired tomorrow morning

day 2245 – unbounce conference

i can count with one hand the amount of times i transited in the last year, and today was one of them. day one of the unbounce call to action held in downtown. i started off the first two sessions sitting with the rest of the marketing team, but i wandered off after that. i felt more comfortable being on my own and had a chance to meet new people. afterall, marketing conferences are meant for networking and meeting others alike. i was also glad to see a few familiar faces from my sports circle. aside from learning, the goal of today was to collect all the swag i wanted and i did so in the first half of the day

day 2221 – dojo obliged

wasn’t too thrilled on working this quarter’s blackbelt test being well aware that i’ll be a long one. the test didn’t finish until 9:45pm and i walked out with many more cuts, scrapes and bruises from holding for all the board breaking misses. still, i headed to open gym without food because i said i would be there. i did some x-outs and reviewed some poomsaes before i called it a day. i couldn’t join the gang for late night food because i’ll need the energy for a full day ahead of me. this can’t be over soon enough; my soul needs a break
