The triviality of one ordinary day

Rio Men's 400 meter final
London’s Gold and Silver medalists are getting smoked.


Rio Men's 400 meter final
Never saw this coming.


Rio Men's 100 meter final
Witnessed history last night.


We woke up at 4:30am and 4:50am respectively. Cross Country practice from 6:00-7:30am this morning.

Up late last night (10pm) watching Usain Bolt make history in the 100 meter final.

And just before the 100 meter final was the men’s 400 meter final.

New world record in 43.03, smashing Michael Johnson’s 17-year old 43.18 record.

Never saw the world record coming. Blindsided.

In the smallness of daily life, astonishing is always happening.

Be astonished.


All day.
