Day 172.

We made it to the end of August. Happy Monday! ❤️ As we embark on a new month, I wish you all peace and strength. This pandemic has been tough, but we can!

Watched Work It before I slept. I actually enjoyed it. Loved the cast and music. 💃🏻

I was supposed to study earlier and I haven’t done any of it yet. I hope my motivation changes. I’m still in a funk. I’ll snap out of it! Gotta keep going with my goals and dreams.

MLB tradeline: Giants picked up a new pitcher. We lose D. Rod. Good luck in Detroit! I wish it would’ve worked out in SF. We’ll be cheering for you!

Animal Crossing update: Flick is on my island. Trying to sell him as many bugs as possible. I need the bells!!! I haven’t seen Celeste in a while. I don’t play as much as night – that probably explains why!

I’m making progress with work stuff, so I’m relieved. I was a little stressed out after turning it in and then anticipating the response from my boss. My goal: teach an online course. Hopefully it works out for me.

Chatting with that guy. Convo is up and down – I swear it’s my anxiety. I’ll leave him alone for a few days. I don’t want to be that girl always texting. We’re still getting to know each other. We probably won’t meet until next year. Sadness, but trying to keep things interesting. 😂

Oh yeah, my bro finally heard me play my uke earlier tonight that he closed my door during the NBA playoffs. LOL! Funniest thing ever. 🎼

Welcoming September with open arms. I miss the past. We can’t go back. We’re here! No more running. I must face my fears. I’ll be okay.

Lastly, I really like my new lip stain. I bought it last year. Such a nice red. 💋

Take care y’all!

Good night.


Day 171.

Happy Sunday! It’s a new week and I’m looking forward to what it brings. 🙏🏼 We watched The Little Mermaid before we slept. A childhood fave. 🧜🏼‍♀️

I took it easy. I slept in and I’ve been lying in bed. It’s been cold.

The highlight of my day was attending a zoom meeting for racial justice. It’s nice to hear and listen to others and their experiences. BLM! 🖤 I’ve got a list of new books to check out. I’m excited.

I’m currently catching up with a friend. So it’s nice to see how she’s doing!

Animal Crossing update: I slept in so I didn’t get my turnips. That’s okay. Lol. I’m taking in the final weekend of fireworks. I’ll miss it, but it’s been fun! 🎇🎆

I might eat a little something before bed. We ordered Korean food and boba. I requested salted cheese and they didn’t put it in. 😞 Next time.

Giants take the series in AZ! Trade deadline is tomorrow. The suspense is making me jumpy. Let’s see if they make a move.

Take care, y’all!

Good night.


Day 170.

I feel like I’m hitting a wall with something. Or maybe I’m just reading into it too much? Hmm. Either way I just gotta keep going – even with all of the distractions. Music is helping me focus!

Happy Saturday! Still processing the sad news of Chadwick Boseman’s passing. What a beautiful soul! He’ll be missed. RIP King. 🖤

I slept a lot today. I was feeling tired since I didn’t fall asleep right away. Hoping to be more productive tomorrow with cleaning and organizing. Maybe even do a load of laundry. I did help with changing the toilet seat! Score. 😎 Very useful skill to have. Check it out on YouTube.

I just finished the 600 day squat challenge with my arena strength booty bands. Difficult, but not impossible. Might do it every week! 💪🏼 YOU. CAN.

Giants win in AZ! Hurrah!! Losing streak is done. 🖤🧡

I just played my uke. It always sounds so beautiful and peaceful. Much needed after this heavy week.

Animal Crossing update: still trying to get the right villager to move out and it hasn’t happened. I’m going to try again since there’s a visitor at the campsite. Lol. Last fireworks show tomorrow! Let me see if I can find a Black Panther design. Would love to honor CB in that way.

That was my Saturday. Mellow, but somewhat productive. The days just go by quickly. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.


Day 169.

TGIF! What a day. I wasn’t feeling well earlier, so I took it easy for the last few hours. I’ve been feeling stressed and anxious. I had to breathe and let go. I exercised too. I got through it.

The news of Chadwick Boseman’s passing has left me heartbroken. What a talent! I enjoyed him in 42 and Black Panther. RIP. ❤️

I finished some work stuff. That’s where my anxiety stems from. I want it to be perfect, but it’s a work in progress. As long as I’m improving – that’s all that matters to me.

Last Christmas is finally in my possession! Now it’s part of our movie collection. Yay!!! 💗

Animal Crossing update: I played for about 30 minutes. Took care of maintenance on my island.

Giants losing streak is at 3. Still cheering for them. 🖤🧡

I might play my uke to give me some peace. I’m just looking forward to the weekend. Deep breaths. Everything will be alright.

Happy weekend to all! Take care.

Good night.


Day 168.

It’s been a meh kind of day, but I’m making progress. I finally bought the Sailor Moon blushes from the Colourpop collab! Thanks for the assist, twin. 💜 She was clutch!

The Giants disappointed me today. 0-2 with the doubleheader. I’m just glad we got the first game. We won’t see LA again this season. Phew. Playoffs or not, it’s been fun to watch this very interesting season.

Animal Crossing update: I bought another piece of art from Redd. Yay! He doesn’t stop by often, but when he does I take advantage of it. I’ll try to clean things up on my island this weekend. I’ve been too distracted with work stuff.

Work stuff: I’m finalizing course descriptions and outlines. I’m planning to stay up a bit to finish everything so I can submit it tomorrow. Trying my best to get back to a routine. It still feels like March tbh.

I napped for a few hours. I needed the rest. I’m still very emo, but I’ll be okay. Whatever this is. 🙃 I don’t know. The pandemic has made it hard to meet new people, but I’m making the effort.

It’s so cold now. I miss the warm weather. Might go for a walk tomorrow. We’ll see. I must also keep in touch with my docs. Eep.

Well it’s time to exercise, play my uke, and eat dinner! Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care.

Good night.


Day 167.

It’s been a heavy day for me. I had to take a nap after hearing about the current events in sports, politics, and the murder of innocent people protesting for change! I’ve been very vocal about my political views. My blog is a place of love and safety. I will continue to support #BlackLivesMatter. 🖤

I’m also dealing with my own personal issues. I guess I’m trying to figure out what was said. Am I overthinking? Am I overreacting? I’m a strong Piscean womyn. I’ve always had good intuition. Of course people are owed the benefit of the doubt. So we shall see. I had to step away from my phone for the last few hours. I’ll respond when I’m not so emotionally charged and clear headed. This pandemic has become overwhelming. I miss social interaction especially in public settings, but I’m still doing my part and exercising caution no matter how much I want to meet somebody new.

I haven’t found the strength to study and take care of work stuff. Maybe I can work on something for an hour or two. I must play my uke too. I played some Animal Crossing too. I was quite distracted so I didn’t play for long. 🙃

I finished my 100 squats! I’m challenging myself to take care of my body and eat well. So far I’ve done 300. Another 300 more! I can!!! 💜💪🏼💜

Lastly, Happy National Dog Day! To the present and past puppers, thank you for your love and loyalty. We love you always! ❤️

Time to focus. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.


Day 166.

I’m all over the place. But hey, it’s Tuesday! Splendor in the Grass was really good btw. Natalie Wood ❤️

I’ve got work things to think about, some other things to think about, and then some more. I’m kinda in an iffy mood. I hate internalizing things. 😩 At least I got my squats done.

Animal Crossing: I checked my island. I made sure I sold some turnips. Nothing too eventful.

I had ramen for lunch and banh mi for dinner.

I’ve been watching the Giants game since 6:45pm. We’re in extras. Come on, Gigantes!!!! Send us home. 🖤🧡

I gotta study and brainstorm tonight. Might be a long night for me. Must focus on something else to pass the time. I’ll probably play my uke too.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.


EDIT: Walk-off! Thanks Solano!!! GIANTS! 🖤🧡

Day 165.

Happy Monday! 💕 I stayed up watching Last Christmas again. I love the movie, the music, and the cast! All the feels.

I’ve been exercising consistently and it burns. But I feel better about myself. It boosts my mood. Much needed during these unique times.

Animal Crossing update: I only played a little today. I sold a few things, cleaned up some items, and interacted with my villagers. K.K. was playing at the plaza.

Still in my head a lot, but I’m working through it.

I should’ve cleaned more today, but yesterday wore me out. Will tackle more things tomorrow.

We’re going to be watching Splendor in the Grass. It’ll be my first viewing. So excited! I hope I like it.

I played my Britney Spears vinyl again. MOOD.

Good night.


Day 164.

Happy Sunday! ❤️

I spent the day cleaning and organizing. I went ham for about 8 hours with some breaks in between. Had to trash and shred old papers. Tomorrow I’ll be organizing some more. I’ll have to start a donation pile.

I’m currently exercising as I type this. I’m using a resistance band for my legs. The burn!

Highlights of my day: putting up the artwork I’ve collected over the years. I finally played Britney’s debut album on vinyl. Sounds amazing! It was the first album I bought with my own money at Costco back in the day. I’m dating myself! Lol. The Aces and Little Mix have also been on repeat. Soundtracks of my current mood.

I’ve been in my head the last few days. It tends to happen a lot, but I’m aware that it’s because of my anxiety. I’m doing alright. Staying beautiful and confident through the struggle.

The Giants are streaking! Yayyy!!! But today was sad since we had to say farewell to Hunter Pence again. He’s a treasure in SF! I miss him a lot already. He’s contributed so much in the past. It’s hard to see him go, but it’s part of the business. Forever Giant. 🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: I played early to buy my turnips and then I checked in about a half hour ago to stare at the fireworks. Lol. I’ve been distracted by other things. 🙃

Lastly, Happy Birthday to Kobe! You are missed. 💜

Hope y’all had a nice weekend. Have a kick ass week! Take care.

Good night.


Day 163.

It’s been a busy day. Today came and went. The biggest task was building my desk. We’re steps away from completion! Definitely a marathon and a labor of love. Thanks to my sister, Lala, for assisting! 💗

Animal Crossing update: There was another bug-off on my island. I did okay. I just remembered that I didn’t sell the rest of my turnips. So I’m just going to trash them. Man! I missed out on making a profit. Sighhh.

I’ve been tired and just a little moody. Today has been something. I’ve been thinking about a lot. Breathe. Just breathe.

Giants win again! They’re playing really well. 🖤🧡 Yaz has been clutch!!

Hoping tomorrow will be a much better day. I’ve got a lot on my plate, but it’ll all get done.

Thinking of everyone in California who has had to evacuate due to the state fires. Keep safe! 💕

Good night.
