No. SUBJECT1

Amazing day! simply knee deep in pow! we managed to get some more filming done today. Some cliff jumps are always fun! Took a few bails today. Punched myself in the face once and busted both knees on a rail! :( Lots of pretty girls on the mountain so that was a distraction! Hahah,. Matt got back today after being on tour for a week so we just had one rowdy day!

After snowboarding, booked it home, showered shaved and went to a family dinner with everyone! It was an amazing dinner! I was pretty happy. What an amazing way to end a sunday!







 School tomorrow! yikes! But I somehow feel kind of glad to be back. back in black

Bor'd?

Haven't been updating this stuff lately! Now I lie in my bed about to dream. Midterms this week are killing me! I feel like I am not as stressed as I should be. back to back midterms thursday and friday and one ugly one monday! I cant wait until the weekend. Hopefully I'll get a peek up the mountains and see how theyre doing. Landed a few solid runs last weekend and even got to ride in some pow! It was pretty phenomenal. had a nice dinner and chit chat with the aunt after the mountain at the hockey game! Pretty exhausting. It feels like the lack of sleep definately carries itself through from day to day. Been sleeping around 2 in the morning for a week. This has to stop! Madness! Crisis!

Wow! What a night! Matty and I went up today to get some filming in and we ran into wilbert and his holmes ronnie from hong kong (welcome to van! ) Completed one of the best tree runs of my life! almost took out my arm on a few trees and stumps... Got some good shots on some rails and jumps -  pretty full night. Then, a lightning storm hit the mountain and we were stranded up top for nearly two hours of non boarding time. Pretty fun. I couldnt call home because there was no reception so mum was worried sick! Probably the least of my worries though seeing as the lighting was close enough to light a cigarette!

Heading up to the hills again tomorrow bright and early so we'll see what happens then! Mike's coming up so it should be an epic show down. Hopefully we can try some rodeos in the powow

Pretty good night last night. Went night snowboarding for the first time in a long time. Just matt and I. No pressure, no cameras, no park douches! Got a few tricks down some rails, boxes, jibbing mostly. I cant wait to go back! Nobody was on the hills! I think there will be more sessions to come. 
Took these photos two days ago..

What a perfect way to polish off my friday. Finished all my assignments due this weekend. Im ready to party! Sunday, my friend wilbert will be snowboarding with me for the first time! Pretty stoked! Now, im just unwinding at Annies house with my holmes cory. Havent seen either of them in a while! Nice to be relaxed wtihout the pressure of snowboarding and school.

People are going home for reading break! sarah is leaving for surrey on tues. Hopefully we can all hang out over the break or study!!!!! Tomorrow, I will go back up to the mountain to practise jumps and jibs. Hopefully the board will take the beating!

bonjour petit soleil

an absolutely beautiful day today! I thought milky clouds would be in the forecast but it was quite sunny and windy as well! Both are my favorites! Arrived at my first lecture just as kalas started babbling about dna replication and all that junk. No seats! I had to cram myself in to a seat. No gossiping with sarah today for better or worse! After my second lecture, I managed to complete quite a bit of work with Sarah & Ty so at least it was a proooductive and I was engaged in all my lectures haha. Polished off the night catching up with Cory so that was pretty sick. Can't wait for this week to be over and get some video parts in!

Probably one of the better days i've had in two weeks. I think this good karma will continue...Check out the song below! Probably one of the best by Michael Jackson! RIP

End of a mixed weekend..

Saturday turned out to be a bummer! Finally hit a few jumps with little promise.. tried a few straight airs and a couple of 180s around the side rollers. Pretty icy and slipped out a few times. On the seventh or eighth lap, came up a little short of the landing and decked myself in the face. I dont think I've ever had such an oh shit moment in my life! Haha. I was a little bit dazed so I stuck to doing a few more laps before I left!
Amit and barb are leaving vancouver tonight! I hope they have a safe trip home and tell the people of edmonton how much fun BC is! Another day of school tomorrow! Sleep well!

Thursday like no other...

what seemed to be a bad day quickly turned into the most interesting evening yet! Amit & barb came all the way from Edmonton to visit vancouver. While barb was in her training class, amit and I went to granville island to have a nice lunch! We then decided to have a few beverages before barb got home! I had a Japadog for the first time tonight. I wish my other buddies from edmonton were here... but barb and amit are the best!

I love them so much! They remind me of my summer days in Taiwan! those were definitely the better times. the best of times. Back to the real world.

TUE

Sure feels like a tuesday.. woke up at 630 just in time to see the sun rise...and bus to campus. Sure is tough getting around vancouver in the cold. I wish it would snow in the city! It seems that all the other places surrounding funcouver are getting spoiled with snow! Speaking of which, it was a beautiful evening and I had a chance to check out a few spots that we might possibly session when the snow comes later this month (hopefully)

Spent most of my night longboarding around the neighborhood which is a rarity in the recent crummy weather we have been having. It was so cold my face was beet red and my eyes were freezing up! Hopefully we will continue to have this weather for a little while! My two friends from the next province over are coming tomorrow! So stoked! Amit and Barb! welcome to vancouver soon! I can't wait for the weekend!

My holmes cory played this! its pretty good! If i could only play half as well...
