Vacay!

Hello!

I’ve been MIA. I promise to have things in order and updated once I settle in from vacation and the start of the new school year.

I’ve missed blogging and updating folks. I have so many pictures to sort through.

Canada’s been so much fun with my family! Watch out for that update. I just finished packing up. Maple syrup everything!!! ☺️ And Tim Horton’s. Wow. I love you. Haha.

Good night to all!

  1. Disneyland, you’re always so much fun! But I’m drained by the end of it. Until next time. ❀️
  2. My summer vacation is winding down. It’s almost back to school!
  3. I must catch up on blog entries. I’ve said it time and time again. I really do need to bounce back.
  4. I’ve watched To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before multiple times. I absolutely love the movie. I want my own Peter!!
  5. I’m pretty out of it. Time to sleep. Good night!

xoxo,

There’s a lot going on, but it’s all good! One day at a time. πŸ™‚

I’m doing my best to enjoy my time off! I love being busy, but we all need a break now and then.

I’m prepping for my medical procedure. Looking at the positives. I should be okay. But man, do I miss regular food. And wine πŸ˜›

Always a great time catching up with friends! So much positivity all around ❀️ I’m so grateful.

Well, this is good night. Happy weekend to all!!

Resting up.

Hi!

I just returned from Orlando. I’m catching up on other life things. I’d like to update the blog soon. I’m hoping to work on an entry tonight.

I’m still recovering from the car accident. Bruises are fading, but I’m still unable to put too much pressure on my knees. It hurts. 😦 Being in a vehicle has stressed me out. I’m reminded of what happened. It’s scary!!

Sally is still adjusting too. I hope she warms up to us soon.

Happy Friday!

Bruised and sore.

Here’s my update. I went through a lot this past weekend. It was actually terrifying.

We adopted a dog to add to the family on Saturday, 6/23. Her name is Sally. She’s a chihuahua, five years old, and was born with one eye. The other eye didn’t develop. 😦 She’s originally from the Central Valley. She’s very sweet, but still adjusting to her new environment. Anyway, after adopting her, we decided to go to Petco to buy a few things for her – a kennel, food dish & water bowl, a bed, and a toy. We were looking forward to getting home, but we never got there.

On our way home, my brother and I were involved in a car accident. We were 10 minutes away from home. We were at 23rd Street and South Van Ness. It was our light to go. As my brother attempted to make a left, this car is speeding from the left side and hits us. He pressed on the brakes as much as he could have. Our car is a tank, but a lot of the damage was in the front. I saw the bumper fly off. It was the first automobile accident that I’ve been involved in ever. It was really scary! And having the dogs there was even scarier, but they’re safe. I on the other hand had to be transported to the ER due to my underlying health conditions and I was bruised up pretty badly. I’ve got bruises on my knees, my chest, and overall soreness everywhere. I’m still dealing with it. It sucks! :/

X-Rays were ordered for my knee. Thankfully there was no fracture. I was able to go home after a few hours.

Our Subaru saved us just like in their commercials and I am eternally grateful. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to be attentive behind the wheel. Please stay away from all distractions, especially your phones. It can wait!!! I don’t drive enough in the city, but it’s always the other drivers. You can be the safest driver, but someone else can mess that up for you.

I’m recovering now and should be healed up for Orlando. I’m very excited! πŸ™‚

Thank you so much to my cousin, Adrian for getting to the scene, the witnesses, and first responders.

Hope you all had a great weekend. Here’s to an awesome week!!

I’m sleepless sometimes and then I crash. These last few weeks have been something. I must confront everything at this point. Avoidance doesn’t work. 😦 Staying positive is difficult. I must block out the noise and negativity. I tell myself to keep going and I will.

Prayer has helped me. Reading is also comforting.

Please send good vibes.Β 

Thank you.

It was a long week. The weekend was restless for me.

The next couple of weeks are going to test my patience, mentality, and focus. I just have to keep going! #resilience Family is keeping me afloat. There will be better days. I know it!!!

On another note, I’ve been thinking about love. All my past crushes and unrequited love. I wish them all well! But wouldn’t it be crazy if I randomly bumped into one of them and suddenly we reconnected?! Yeah, right. Haha. Stranger things have happened.

This is also a reminder that I can do anything! Reach for the stars.

I’m tired. Good night and have a great week!

LET ME THINK 17.

I’m gonna switch this one up a bit. Anyway, I’m sleepy, but I can’t sleep. Not until I get this off of my chest.

Am I hard to love? Am I looking for love in all of the wrong places? Am I being proactive about love? Some of the many questions that go on in my anxiety filled mind.

I think I do my best to be my most genuine self and sometimes it still doesn’t feel enough. I feel like putting myself out there will just be disappointing every time. Am I not opening myself up enough? I have my reservations. I’ve been hurt in the past, so my walls are very high. I might’ve mentioned this in a previous entry. I easily am hurt when people disrespect me. At times, I feel like I’m not being taken seriously. On top of that, I’ve encountered people who pose as your wing person only to have them betray you. I understand that everyone isn’t the same, but that one incident stung. I really thought I could trust her. I revisit it a lot and I wish I could’ve done it differently. Instead of telling her that it was okay. Because it wasn’t.

In the words of Kylo Ren, “Let the past die.” Oh believe me, I’m trying.

Now I’m ready to sleep.

Good night.

LET ME THINK 16.

  1. This day has come. I’m so sad. Today is our cousin’s funeral. I don’t want to say goodbye. 😦
  2. I’ve been processing the last few days. Family is everything.
  3. Relatives still can’t tell Bianca and I apart. Lol. #twinlife #twins
  4. It’s been great catching up with everyone.
  5. Maria(n) was strong and I will continue to be.

Good night. I have to be up in a few hours.
