I am so proud of this group this weekend for coming together to represent UBC at the 2017 College/University Nationals! Despite having a double handicap of having to default a match as we did not have enough female players on our team, and having to tell our opponents which match we will disqualify in advance to allow the opposing team to change their line up, the team fought through these obstacles and finished with a Bronze medal! Despite the entire team being self funded, everyone worked hard this week and nobody left empty handed 😁
I feel so fortunate to be a part of this experience and I hope this is just the start to something better in the future! I would like to thank the players, Aaron, Allan, James, Alex, Isabelle, Kylie, Jasmine, and Josh in the individual event, for the chance to work with them. Best of luck in your future endeavors and maybe we will work together again next year! 😊
"Use it or lose it"... I was never very good at the piano, but I really wanted to play a song. Despite the difficulty, I pulled it off (more or less). It took a lot of time, patience, and hard work. But I haven't played it much in a while and I only have fragments left. It will take some time to relearn the parts that are out of practice.
Music is often very powerful, as we carry pieces of our own lives with each song. However, music is very personal. We cannot expect others to appreciate the music we enjoy because they do not share the same context. I will always appreciate 🎹, but I know other people may enjoy something else. To each their own.
Nothing like walking into a busy badminton facility for a tournament 😎 Win or lose, it doesn't matter because we can't win them all. And if we work hard and smart enough, you won't lose them all either.
Round 3: I think I got it now 😋
Round 2, but added spinach, mushrooms, and swapped for whole wheat penne. I'm not so fun in the kitchen 😂
Trying a Gordon Ramsay recipe from his Home Cooking book 😂😂😂
Dinner at Boston Pizza with my Valentine 😘 We didn't exchange gifts or anything this year to save money for bigger things. As it's our 8th Valentine's Day together, it's nice to know we don't need the fancy gifts and that we can enjoy each other's company as it is 😊
But the truth is... maybe she looks really happy in this photo because she gets to eat pasta 😂😂😂 Happy Valentine's Day @harrokittie 😘😆😊
