My middle brother and I just got the 2nd dose of covid-19 vaccine this morning and later in the afternoon my brother took me to the gym and i thought only the shower room and swimming pool are open but as i followed my middle brother to the spa room, i noticed the jacuzzi is open and there is one person there using it.  my middle said the steam room is also opens too but limits to 3 people using it for now.  i looked at the steam room on the hallway and it turn out to be the case.  cool.  the sauna room is also open but its probably in maintenance i think so it was temporarily closed for now.

i was quite excited to find out its finally open that i used the steam room first, then jacuzzi next, swimming pool last.  i try swimming in frog like style in the swimming pool and i think i improved a little bit somewhat after over a year of not swimming.  the swimming pool water doesn't feel as cold compare to a year prior which i believe is mostly because i manage to get tuberculosis under control lately that i get less goosebumps now.  the first time swimming in frog like style today, i noticed a slight improvement compare to a year prior but the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th time, i think i performed a little bit worst than my first try today but its still cool.  after swimming, i went back to the jacuzzi for a little bit before i head to the shower room to shower and brush my teeth there.  then my brother took me to mcdonald for the 3rd time today before we head home.

my middle brother said he heard that the gym steam, sauna, and jacuzzi were open on the 19th which is 2 days ago and i thought it probably opened on the 15 of this month but i didn't know until now but my middle brother might be right, it might be on the 19.  about 10 days prior, my brother took me to the gym but the steam, sauna, and jacuzzi weren't open yet though.

i am happy that the gym spas are open now that i can go to the gym everyday to use it and try to improve on my frog's like swimming style some more.  since i got the 2nd and last vaccination today.  i will wait for like 2 weeks to let the medication works before i practice tae kwon do and other martial arts at the park which is june 4 of this year.  i am quite excited.  life is sure somewhat getting good now. :wav:

now, i am going to go wash dishes before bed time.  my mom washed me some dishes this morning and left some behind and now there are more dishes in the sink.  last night, i didn't get enough sleep though.  i probably got like a total of 5 hours of sleep today but i was so excited that i will do the dishes despite of not having enough sleep today.

Glad things are opening up again for you and it's improving your mental health! My state just opened everything up on Memorial Day. Most people are still wearing masks even though it's not mandated anymore. My theory is because my state got so decimated by the virus it's still very much fresh in peoples minds.

What vaccine did you get? Any side effects?

the vaccines i got are pfizer vaccines. on the first dose, my left arm got weak about a day later after i got vaccinated.  it last for like maybe 1 day before my left arm regain strength if i remember correctly.  my first vaccination was on april 28 and my 2nd vaccination was on may 21.  i got like a mild flu-like symptom later that night on the day i had my 2nd vaccination.  it also lasted for a day before it go away like completely iirc.

how about you titan, did you get vaccinated yet and if you did.  did you have any side effects?

several days later after the 2nd vaccination and going to the gym, my middle brother also took my oldest brother and me to this college track and field which are open so we can have some exercise.  my middle brother jogs on this track and field while i just walk to get some exercise.  sometimes before heading to track and field, my middle brother took us to mcdonald to buy drink and i walk around track and field and drink at the same time as i listen to musics on my cellphone with blue tooth headphones on.  sometimes he bought drinks after track and field and i drink it in the car as he drove me to the gym.  my oldest brother went to track and field for a couple of times and he gotten tired of it that he don't want to go anymore so only my middle brother and i go.

on the night of may 31, around 8 p.m.ish before gym is close, my brother took me to the gym so we can use the spa and i can also use the swimming pool too.  my brother took me to the gym late because in the morning of that day, he drove me and my oldest brother to outlet to go shopping and its like 2 hours drive far away outlets.  so that night as i was swimming in the pool, i paid attention to one of the gym members who was using a pound or however you say it.  its like a live-saver floating thing that float on top of the water.  he was using it to practice his frog like style swimming and i copied him to use it so i can improve on my frog like style swimming.  especially my legs swimming like a frog like style.  after like 4 to 5 days of using the pound to practice, i can swim in frog like style without the need to paddle my feet after each time i bend my knees, stroking my legs swimming in frog like style.  so, my frog like style improves.  i was happy.

on june 4, my middle brother drove me to the park after he took me to college for track and field and after the gym.  i asked him to take me to the park so i can practice martial arts there like tae-kwon-do and other martial arts.  the first night i performed mostly worst than over a year ago after of not practicing it for over a year.  i did had fun but i was kind of disappointed.  the 2nd day iirc, i didn't go to the park because it was late and around 8 p.m.ish when i decided to go home instead of going to the park after the track and field and the gym so my middle brother drove me home.  on the 3rd day, i think overall, i improve a tiny winnie bit with my martial art compares to my first night.  and i mostly improve a tiny winnie bit after each day.  on the 8th day and 8 times practicing martial arts, i think i performed mostly worst than the day and days prior.  i did have fun though and thoroughly enjoy it despite performing worst than before.

nearly half way practicing martial art, i checked my left big toe on my right foot and i notice its bleeding a little so i stop immediately and went home and use ointment and bandage it.  the very, very mild injuried was probably cause from stepping something sharp on the grass and i think its probably a bark of the tree or something like that 8 days prior on the first night i practice martial art which is june 4th.  i thought it wasn't a big deal that first night and i didn't think much of it and even if i think about it, i thought it healed up already but boy was i so dumb and wrong.  no wonder i kept getting a very mild pain on my left big toe on my right foot in those 8 days as i practice martial arts.

so june 12 was my last day practicing martial art at the park and i will wait till it heal up completely before practicing it some more.  i think i wait till june 23 which is 11 days of letting it heal to make sure it heal up completely by then before i practice some more martial arts.  oh yeah, my oldest brother also injuried my left butt cheek as he opened the back seat car door as i walked out the front seat car door passenger's seat and the door he opened pressed against my left butt cheek that it ached.  that was on late april.  on late may, the pain mostly went away until the 2nd time i practice martial arts again which is june 6 is where the pain comes back but i ignored it as most moves i did didn't really hurt my left butt cheek.  the pain only really comes back a lot is when i tried to run and then jump or run and then do the jump kicks move.  so hoping june 23 is where all the injuries are gone before i practice martial arts like daily at the park.

sorry for this very long story.  how about you titan, how are your days going and how was your job going?

Sounds like you're getting out there and not having cabin fever anymore!

To answer your questions, yes I got vaccinated in April and May (first and second shot respectively). All I had was a sore arm both times which is expected with really any vaccine you get. Otherwise I had zero symptoms. Aside from my parents, I know no one who had no symptoms. All my friends are in their late 20s and 30s and every one had side effects. Some pretty bad where they were out for the day. I went to work lol.

They're going good. I've been keeping myself very busy which is why I have been MIA unfortunately. I'm still working part time as a carpenter which is going well. I'm learning a lot and enjoying the work. Beats sitting at a desk all day. After a little more experience I'm gonna try to get a job at a construction company or try and get into the carpenters union. Otherwise I've been working on my video game side hustle. I just got a stack of PS2/PS3 and Wii games I'm trying to get listed. There's a lot lol. Also fixing consoles. I have a huge stack of things I'm trying to get fixed and listed. Been also occupying my time building my game collection. I just bought my 300th console game lol. I also just started Twitch streaming too. When I get more comfortable with it, I'll share the link here. Just waiting for some equipment to arrive and get my Twitch legs more before I go full on public with it.

glad to hear things are going good to very good for you when it comes to job and other stuffs that you did.

yesterday is my first day practicing mixed martial arts again after i let my left big toe on my right foot healed for 11 days.

around noon time was when i went to the park and practice martial arts there.  luckily i didn't injury myself practicing it.  about half way practicing it, i got thirsty so i walked to mcdonald to buy coffee there and drink as i walked back to the park to finish practicing the remaining martial arts moves there.  like a couple of moves, i improve a little bit compare to 11 days to 12 days prior.  while some moves, i either didn't improve much or at all or i performed worst than 11 to 12 days prior.  like one of the last moves that i did which is doing front flip with hands that i performed worst than 12 days prior where i did somewhat better.  i think my spine is croaked to the right side from sleeping too much on the right side make my body croaked to the right side as i did the front flip with hands touching the ground.  and yesterday i can barely lift up my body as i did the front flip.  the last time i did that which is probably the 7th time that day, i improve a tiny weenie bit than the first 6 times.

it does make me appreciate pretty much any martial art moves that i practice and improve upon where i performed worst than days or years prior.  otherwise, if i got good at it easily with little to no practice.  very likely chances are, i wouldn't appreciate those moves as i thought they are easy moves to make until its become hard for me and i did worst than priors which make me appreciate pretty much any martial moves no matter how easy for me to learned it at first.  it might be easy for me on some moves but hard for others.  until those moves become hard for me, it make me appreciate those moves more and be understanding on why some people couldn't do it easily.

like the front flip that i did where i performed much worst than 12 days prior.  especially over 8 years ago, in april 4, 2013 where i did the front flip successfully with my body flip straight instead of croaked to the right side after of not practicing it for over 13 years prior.  after that day of april 4th, 2013, i couldn't do the front flip straight anymore.  i hope that one day i could do it straight but i think i probably need find a way for me to sleep on my back and left side more instead of sleeping mostly on the right side.  but i have a feeling that is like wishful thinking to me as the left side of my head is badly injured that i don't know how to make it possible for me to sleep on my left side more and eventually on my back.

one last thing i like to mention is that my left butt cheek pain is mostly gone by now after 11 days of not practicing martial arts and letting it heal.  yesterday, i ran and jumped as i practice martial arts with little to no pain on my left butt cheek hip.  let see if the pain come back or go away completely or nearly completely today around noon or around afternoon as i practice some more martial arts at the park today.

i been practicing martial arts from jumping and from walking too much yesterday that my left leg ache somewhat that i couldn't wash dishes last night that i plan on washing it today later in the morning or so before my middle brother take me to the gym or if he couldn't take me to the gym in the morning and he went by himself, i could wash dishes later in the morning and go to the park by myself to practice martial arts afterward.

sorry for this long story but yesterday was a pretty good day for me overall.  hopefully today and in the future i have lots of good days instead of bad days.  the more, the merrier.

just a quick update.  after of not practicing martial arts for 10ish days due to back pain and some days sleeping too little, i finally practice it again today after i got a long good sleep last night and the back pain is mostly gone.  i also lost some weight too during those time which is cool.  i am like about 3 pounds overweight now as i check the scale at the gym early this afternoon.  i used to be like 10 to 10ish pounds overweight but now i am closer to my normal weight.

so anyway, i was able to jump a bit higher most of the time today practicing martial arts.  i think the biggest reason was from practicing frequently and the weight loss makes it easier to jump a bit higher.  many of the moves i practice today, i improved compare to 10ish days ago.  the only move where i didn't improve was the front flip where i still land on the right side of my feet instead of straight but its out of my hands and the scientists hand to make it possible for me to sleep more on my left side and on my back too to do it straight though.
