had been very good with my spendings lately so thought the timing was right to splurge and give myself a late birthday present by adding an xz to my sony collection. wanted to buy this many months ago, stayed patient for my phone case to arrive and the price to drop a bit. then waited some more for the one plus five release, but still set on my forest blue xz. setting up the phone just the way i like it will take some time.
i am sad my phone took a hard fall. it’s like it had a bone fracture except it doesn’t grow back together in six weeks. the day didn’t go well – not feeling good, didn’t make my lifts and not being productive. maybe the turn of the calendar signifies summer vacation is through and competition training schedule is set to start up next week. the pressure is really starting to hit me now that offseason is over. offseason training was good because i got a chance to focus on new things and not worry about coaching, cutting and activity restrictions. the grind will soon begin, am i prepared??
there’s been one conversation that’s taken over my whatsapp lately. i understand the importance of communication and whatsapp is a great way of communication, but it’s overdoing it and totally redundant if i have to receive the same message in four different means. i am not sure how keen i am waking up every morning to see repeated posts not just once, but four times. seeing twenty odd links by noon is unreal and totally ruins my whole whatsapp experience
it’s past the mid way mark of september and the weather is looking a lot like autumn season. not everything has gone the way i had planned – in fact, many things have gone awry in the past few months but i can’t complain because all in all, summer of 2015 has treated me well. i spent a fortune to get myself yet another sony flagship phone, had my fair share of summer sweets and indulgence, and more doctor visits and scans were prescribed. there’s always a first for everything including: my first and second ever long hike, took a leap of faith with tumbling and flipping, ample time spent on the beach and in the water having the opportunity to try wakeboarding, wakesurfing and paddleboarding. staying in the game is always important for me as always, with another nationals complete, another walk with the dragon fulfilled, more tennis balls crushed, and of course never escape the physio and injuries aspect of life. my gym quests never stops even though much of the time i feel slowed progress, but slow progress is better than no progress. and even though the physio appointments and kinesiologist lectures never ellude me, there’s a lot of positive improvements in terms of occurences and length of rehab time required to get back into the game. although i did travel to montreal, it wasn’t solely for pleasure but more so for competition purposes. i do wish traveling does happen for me in the fall or winter season. here’s snippets of what went on this summer as proof it happened, that i took a few steps in crossing out some of the things on my bucket list
i finally got the phone i have been dreaming and drooling about for the past year. feels like just yesterday i thought i convinced myself to settle with the z3 and today it’s another upgrade to the all new z3+ cause i know i couldn’t settle for anything less. don’t underestimate the slightest addition of the plus because it makes the difference in the world and worth the nine hundred dollars i invested. super stoked to finally get my hands on sony’s flagship phone of the year, i am sure my eyes glow when staring at the phone
there were some unexpected delays with sony’s new flagship phone release but it finally happened. my new sony xperia phone just came in today along with a handful of rogers swag. really itching to open it and use a new phone immediately, but waiting on a few things before i make my decision as to which phone it will be. i already know those golf balls will come in handy for trigger point release
after four weeks without my own phone, nothing could make me happier than to get my phone back from the factory and in good working condition. no more two phone combo everyday tethering myself with everyone questioning and asking if i am a drug dealer. i spent my entire night personalizing all my settings and applications just the way i like it because my phone holds a lot of importance and abundance of info, it holds my life in the palm of my hand. it needed to be done even if i didn’t sleep
finally got around to playing around with these nifty gadgets. my parent brought back a selfie stick and power bank from hong kong. taking advantage of hong kong stuff because many things made in china tend to be much cheaper. that power bank comes in handy since my z1 phone battery got a lot worse recently and can’t even last a full day. perhaps it also signals it’s a good time to get a new phone
my new phone case finally arrived at my door, it took so long to deliver i almost thought it got lost and would never get to me. from the naked eye, no one could tell the difference between the two, me neither. and that’s totally normal, because they are exactly the same only one is new and the other is not. i am stubborn minded and like to stick with the things that work for me
announcement of new iphones made me think of my phone collection. love every single one of them and keep them all in mint condition. it’s crazy how reliant i have become on technology especially noticeable with the recent crash of my laptop hard drive that gave me plenty of extra stress. over a week since i lost all my data and i am still trying to recover the great deal of lost vital data and documents
