It’s brutal out here.

I decided to venture out and stop by the sour tour bus experience in front of Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Friday! 💜 I didn’t have a ticket to Olivia Rodrigo’s show, but I wanted to make a day of it. There were a lot of lines and waiting, but I got everything I wanted! Got my chance at the photo booth and bought a tour tee + socks.

Some things were already sold out like hoodies, sweatpants, and jean jackets. There were so many people! Kind of overwhelming, but I survived. The merch line wrapped around the corner. There was another barricade for those attending the show. People started showing up before 8am. Wristbands for that line were distributed on Thursday.

The weather was decent. It was sunny, but then it got gloomy & cold fast. Thankfully I wore enough layers!!!

I wish I took more selfies, but that’s okay. My sisters couldn’t make it out. Next time! Hopefully her next concert will be at an arena. Chase Center would be cool!

I ended up taking Muni to get home. I haven’t been on a train since March 2020. Ultimate throwback!!! I felt pretty safe. I won’t ride it often, but it’s an option for me. Saves money for sure!!

Olivia’s music is great! Can’t wait for her new stuff. The sour tour continues in Europe.✨

Alright time to sleep. Good night!

It’s all too much.

This week has been a lot to process. 😭💔

I grew up during Columbine. I can recall having an open dialogue with classmates and teachers about it. That was 1999. It’s 2022 and gun laws haven’t changed. America is a dangerous place! Don’t come at me about fear mongering. I don’t want to hear it. There are too many guns and not enough laws. “What are we doing?” NOT ENOUGH. #GunControlNow

I remember fire and earthquake drills. Never had to deal with active shooter drills. I’m scared for this generation, but also hopeful. I believe that there is still so much good in the world!

My heart breaks for Uvalde, TX. I pray for the families and friends who lost a loved one. It could’ve been prevented. And reading the reports is a gut punch. I just don’t understand. It’s one shooting after another. I can’t. These events make me angry and helpless. I know I can vote, but I think it’s time for me to reach out to senators!!! Action >

Sports has been a nice escape, but even leagues are sounding off and asking for change!!! We need to do better. It’s now or never.

RIP angels. You’ll be missed. 🤍

Good night.

Little Mix. 💗

They’re officially on hiatus and I’m feeling a lot of things. I’m sad, but looking forward to their solo careers! I wish Jade, Leigh-Anne, and Perrie all the best. I hope they crush it!!! 🥰

I set my alarm for 11:20am yesterday. I knew I had to be up by noon. They were running fashionably late. Once the global stream started, I was ecstatic! I never got to see them live so this was the next best thing. Part of me wanted to fly to London, but I had to weigh out my options. And unfortunately I didn’t have the budget to fly. So however long this hiatus lasts, I’ll be ready!!! Planning to save now so I can hopefully see them in 2-3 years.

They sang all of our faves. I watched the stream with my twin sis! We’ve been fans since the start. I lost it during Between Us and Secret Love Song. They’re role models on what it means to be an ally and beyond. They’ve changed my life in so many ways. When I listen to their music I feel like a brand new person. Confident and unstoppable! 💜 A lot has changed for me in the last decade and my only hope is that I continue to grow and carve out my own path.

I already miss them so much! But here’s to the next 10 years. Little Mix Forever! I love y’all to pieces. Would be cool to eventually meet all of them in the future. Until then, I’ll plan for our next trip to London. Covid is still very real so it’s best to be prepared in my case.

So here’s my vow
Starting from here and now
Nothing comes between us
Nothing comes between us
I swear that we won’t lose this thing we found
‘Cause love will never leave us
Nothing comes between us, between us
🦋

Thank you for the music, Little Mix! Continue to shine.✨

Good night.

Update.

Hello! It’s been a few weeks and I come with an update.

I’ve attended a few events: Buster Posey Day at the yard, my first concert since 2019, and celebrated Mother’s Day with the fam. I also just signed papers to be a barista/cashier again! I hope it goes well.🤞

I had my interview for the mochi film I decided to help with and l was a mess. I probably should’ve prepared more beforehand and I was nervous! But Kristine was very patient with me. I hope I didn’t embarrass myself. 😬 I overthink a lot. Wahhh!

I need to finish my cert for my TEFL. I’ve put it off for so long. I’m almost there! I need to complete it before the end of June. I’m a little stressed since I start training for my new gig next week. Also nervous for that.

I saw Paul McCartney on Sunday! It was amazing. I’ve seen both living Beatles. George was my favorite. RIP to him and John. Truly missed! 🤍

Getting sleepy. My nap threw me off. And omg the Philippine election. Don’t even get me started! It’s upsetting to me as a Filipino American. I want real leadership to steer the country in the right direction. I want progress! I wasn’t born there, but I’m still very connected to the birthplace of my parents and ancestors. LABAN 🇵🇭💗

There’s a lot to do and I’m feeling overwhelmed sometimes. Taking it a day at a time! Wishing you all well. Until next time.
