I’m pretty satisfied with this year’s meet.
-Individual 400m. Time: 55.6. Pretty surprising that I scored this time since I did not really train for the meet. I guess soccer shape compensated for the lack of track training and my soccer season has been going quite well. I couldn’t pull off 2nd place or even 3rd. I was neck to neck for 2nd place but I gave out the last 20 meters and another guy creeped up behind me and took 3rd.
-4x4, that 2nd wind though…reliving the high school memories as to why I loved being the anchor leg. SAE guy was pacing off of me until the last 200m. I pulled away from him cause I felt like I had so much left in the tank. 130m left to go, i pulled away even farther and cruised into the finish line. I looked back a few times and knew I was safe from being beat. Even a few days after the meet, a guy was like “I can’t believe you took that 4x4.” I guess the underdog, yet again?
-Took back our team Championship and teammates also won the 4x1, 100m, long jump, and the mile. Shadow and Tails Champs yet again!!
I have the passion to play. But I injured my ankle pretty hard the other day.
I have the difficulty of stopping the playing. I know I need to stop but I don’t. Long term wise, I still have the Track meet in a week and playoffs. Hopefully after tonight, I’ll take 6 days off and be ready for our last round of games and track next week. I just need to discipline myself to stop.
Worked Basketball from 1:30-5:30, covering for a friend.
Then worked soccer 6-7, and then worked BBALL again from 7:30-9:30.
LONG DAY for a SUNDAY.
Talking behind my back and questioning why did I do that? Hmm…I have proven multiple times that I am a threat. Not only that, I also succeeded. So why should I be joining? I like to think that I am the person to recruit instead. And if you aren’t going to ask, then that’s just an insult and I’ll take what I have to offer somewhere else.
Sooo, today someone mentioned that I was carrying on this person’s legacy. No way..I used my own resources and skills. And frankly, the way I managed things are way different and more appealing to everyone. It works and my effort was put into this.
I make my own legacy.
I played Soccer Monday and Tuesday 3 hours each. . I decided to do a practice on Thursday and take Wednesday off. However, after the manager’s meeting today, I decided to play soooo, so much for a day off! But I had a decent session today. I would always want to take Wednesday off and check out some clubs but I end up just playing.
So this whole year, I’ve been doing a great job with keeping track of my expenses but lately, its been harder to remember what I spend. Its probably because I’ve been spending too much! AIYAH.
Here’s one of my pet peeves.
You’re high up in terms of power, whether it may be part of an organization, company or what have you. I understand that busy-ness is there too. You constantly get emails/phone calls to do an interview, or a favor, or something. And you ignore it or you don’t even take the time to return the call/email. I understand you may have been busy at the moment but give them a call/email back later when you have the time, especially if they left you a voice mail. They gave you their time/effort to write the email/call you.
Don’t forget that sometimes your power was earned because you served an audience. And to completely ignore them and mind your own business, that’s just not respectful.
When I do these specific errands, I think “Why did it come to this point?” It shouldn’t have to EVER come to this point. I should have never need to do these errands. But it has come to this point and I disappoint myself, the family and people around me. I took the hit but I just gotta keep fighting and push through.
My Honda Civic used to average around 280 as the lowest and like 340 as the average highest and nowadays, its not even averaging 260. I don’t think its the way I drive…I think I drive a little conservatively too. Maybe its because the AC??
