Day 221.

Happy Monday! 🙂

It was a busy day for me. Everything important that I had to take care of before work took place in the morning. The nasal swab for COVID-19 wasn’t too bad. I was getting anxiety over it. Lol. They also swabbed the back of my throat. I should get my results in a day or so. I went to the lab right after. I was anticipating a larger crowd, but it calmed down once I got there. Treated myself to a PSL and two vanilla scones. 😌

Once I got home I was able to decompress a bit before getting ready for work. Time moves too quickly nowadays! I met the new student. He’s cool. My pod is great! We’re pretty small right now, but that could change. The 2nd graders make me laugh with their jokes and silliness. Overall it was a good day with them. The con of my day was getting my finger stuck in the wipe dispenser. It hurt. Ahh!

I had Chinese food waiting for me once I got home and my fave snacks. Watched MNF. Yay! I showered after dinner and took a much needed nap. I just woke up so I could type this.

Animal Crossing update: I played a bit before bed. I had a hard time falling asleep.

I’m off tomorrow since I don’t have a student on my roster. This is temporary, but I’ll take it for now.

I might sleep again or I might watch a show or movie. That was my day! I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care.

Good night!

Day 220.

Happy Sunday! 😎 I stayed up watching Ever After. It’s been a while. Great movie.

Niners win!!! ❤️💛 Tony Dungy, you’re the man for picking us to get the W. 🙂 Jimmy was back in his usual form. Everyone did awesome!!

All I have to say about baseball is Go Rays! 😄

It’s a new week and I’m still adjusting. I’ve also got a dentist appointment on Thursday. The good news is I’m off on Friday. Yay!!! Breathe. I can do this.

Animal Crossing update: I got my turnips at 6am. Lol. And then I fell asleep. My island is alright. Still putting up Halloween decor.

That was my Sunday. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 219.

Happy Saturday! 💜

Yesterday wore me out. My entire body was sore. I’m officially back at work! I fell asleep almost instantaneously. Got about 10 hours. I did nap in the middle of the day. Much needed.

It was another warm day in the city. I spent it indoors. We ordered boba milk tea and slush to keep cool. 🥵

The NLCS is tied up. I hope the Braves show up tomorrow. Yeesh. The Rays won tonight! I’m excited for them. Congrats!!!

Let me express my love for Sanrio again. They’re the best! 💗

I was proactive yesterday and today to find a driving instructor. I’m proud to report that I’ve signed up for two lessons in November. I’m looking forward to conquering my fear and anxiety behind the wheel. Woo! I want my independence. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the driving school I found.

Animal Crossing update: I’m trying to clean up my flowers. Not sure what to do with them. Lol. I gave up halfway. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Planning to watch a movie tonight. Not sure what.

Hope y’all had a nice Saturday! Take care.

Good night.

Day 218.

TGIF! My day was super busy and I’m not sure if I completed everything that my doctors requested. 😬 I was late and they almost didn’t take me. I hate being tardy. 😱 If I have to go back, I’ll schedule another appointment.

It was an odd day. I didn’t sleep very well because I was anxious for my first day back at work. It went well btw! Everything is different, but we gotta adapt. I’m sure I’ll have it down by next week. Wearing masks and a face shield is a trip, but it’s so important. Especially in my case! 😷

Thankful I got a ride to and from work today. I’m trying to figure out my driving schedule and getting a few lessons in to regain my confidence. The accident in 2018 made me more scared to be behind the wheel.

Animal Crossing update: Wart Jr. is moving in and Kidd has moved out. I love welcoming new villagers! 🙂 Hoping to fix up my island this weekend.

I don’t even want to talk about baseball right now. The teams I’m cheering for weren’t clutch. Ugh! Hopefully it’s a better day tomorrow! 🖤🧡

I’m glad it’s the weekend. I can recharge! I’m looking forward to sleeping in. 😄

That was my Friday. It was nice to see familiar faces again. Take care!

Good night.

Day 217.

Happy Thursday! 🧡

Wishing my sister a very Happy 25th Birthday!!!! Where did the years go? It was a day well spent. We watched Beauty and the Beast, drank white claws, ate gummy candy, popcorn, and chips. Perfect way to start the day and then we went to sleep.

I slept in and didn’t get up until 1:45pm. It was all good timing since I was waiting for a call. Afterwards, I played more Animal Crossing. Officially at 280 hours! I’ll be racking up more hours this weekend. Woo!

Back to work for me tomorrow. I also have an appointment in the morning. My routine is back!

Enjoyed the NLCS tonight. 😎 The ALCS was mehhh. Come on, Rays!

Highlight of the day was visiting our family. It was a quick visit, but it’s always nice to see them especially our Lola. We miss her! She’s doing well. ❤️

That was my Thursday. I’ll be winding down shortly. I’m super tired now. Take care!

Good night.

Day 216.

Happy Wednesday! My day was super chill. I didn’t do much other than take a call from my boss to touch base for my first day this Friday! He’ll walk me through it. I’m still anxious, but excited.

I took a nap. Had to after seeing the score. The NLCS and ALCS weren’t so good today. 😒 Come on, Braves! Rays too. Let’s goooo!!!

I commented on Ivan Hall’s IG. I’m rooting for him! I usually don’t watch The Bachelorette or the Bachelor, but I might have to for this cycle. 🇵🇭❤️

Animal Crossing update: Redd stopped by today. Bought another painting! I talked to all of my villagers today. I made the rounds. I got some new DIY recipes too.

Tried my bow bands on. It suits my new cut! I love wearing them even if it is just at home.

I was supposed to study tonight, but I might just save it for tomorrow. But it’ll be busy since it’s our sister’s birthday!!! 💗

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

Good night.

Day 215.

Happy Tuesday! 😎

I’ve been so tired today. I fought off my nap. I decided to tune in and watch both the NLCS and ALCS. The teams I’m rooting for won tonight! 🙏🏼 YAAASSS! Former Giants on the Braves and I really like Tampa Bay.

Dinner was so good tonight. We had Chicken Alfredo and garlic bread. I helped with dinner yesterday so I got to chill out. Snickers ice cream bars are the best. It’s been my fave since I was a kid. ❤️

Animal Crossing update: my island is doing okay. I’m trying to log 280 hours. Still working on it. It was a mellow day. Nothing too exciting. I’m waiting for Redd to stop by again.

It was pretty warm today. It’ll be nice again for a few more days. The nights are getting colder. I welcome Fall with open arms! I love beanies and scarves.

Hard to believe I’ll be back at work on Friday! Touching base with the boss tomorrow morning. Still a little anxious, but I’ll be okay. Must practice driving. Might have to rely on rides from family for the next week or two.

I already miss basketball. Baseball is winding down. I hope the Niners do better! I know they can.

That was my Tuesday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 214.

Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day! Always in solidarity. I am on Ohlone land. ❤️

I stayed up to watch A Walk to Remember. It’s one of our favorite movies. I love Mandy Moore and Shane West! The soundtrack is also really beautiful. I cried again. 😭

Today was a big day for me. I finally got my hair cut!! It’s been a year and almost two months since I set foot in a salon. I feel so much lighter and fresh. It’s great! Now it’ll dry faster, no tangles, and easy maintenance. 🙂 I wore double masks, took my temperature, and signed off on a waiver. They also took my temperature again at the salon. Lots of social distancing too. Proud of the SF Bay Area for doing their part to keep everyone healthy and safe.

When I got home, I took a nap. I fell asleep for about 1.5 hours. Afterwards, I helped Mom with dinner. I was responsible for the garlic mashed potatoes, cooking rice, and steaming the asparagus. I overdid that part. Whoops! 😬 Everything was delicious nonetheless. I also had my hojicha latte. SO GOOD!!

I caught a bit of the ALCS and the NLCS. Exciting!! Postseason baseball is the best. Happy to see a lot of familiar faces. PABLOOO!!!

Animal Crossing update: I’m trying to log more hours. I’m at 275+ hours. Hoping to get to 285 soon. My island is doing okay. I decided to remodel my front exterior. It’s perfect now. The previous combo didn’t work for me.

That was my Monday. I’m planning on studying a bit. It’s a big week for me! So much to celebrate and reflect on. I’m just filled with a lot of gratitude. 💕

Good night.

Day 213.

Happy Sunday! What a fun weekend. Today was the final day of the Pinayista Summit. I learned so much, caught up with friends, and met new faces. I’m so empowered and proud to be Pinay! I now know the history behind the word. My mind is blown.

The lightning talks were everything to me. I’m inspired and it’s leading me in the right direction of what I want to do creatively. I have so much to learn, but it’ll be worth it. Next on the list: learn about the pin process and read up on graphic design. 🙂 YAY!!!

Today is also my 13th Anniversary since my Pulmonary Hypertension diagnosis. I was 20 years old. It was a life-changing day, but I also consider it a blessing. I’m still thriving, hustling, and elevating myself despite the doubts and fear. I am powerful! That’s what this weekend taught me. My story matters and so does yours. 💜

In addition to my anniversary – it’s also #dayofthegirl, #internationaldayofthegirl, and #nationalcomingoutday. Sending LOVE to all! There’s so much to celebrate.

It wasn’t a good sports day for the SF Bay Area. YEESH! I caught some of the Niners game. What happened?!! I’m still sticking with them. They are FOREVER! ❤️

Congrats to the Lakers. For Kobe!

I gotta tidy up a bit before bed. Going to play a little Animal Crossing first. 😀 I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 212.

Happy Saturday! Day 2 of Pinay Summit 2020 has concluded. I learned so much today! My mind was blown. I met a lot of new faces too. It’s an awesome space and I’m glad to be a part of it!!

I was jamming out to the DJ sets on Twitch. Shoutout to DJ Bitesize, Sammi G, and DJ Umami! 🇵🇭❤️ Loved all the music. Took me back.

It’s been a nourishing day. I’m tired, but this weekend has been so much fun. Summit ends tomorrow. I hope to learn even more and connect with the Pinays/Pinxys that I haven’t met yet.

Animal Crossing update: Fishing Tourney happened today. I did alright. The next one is in January 2021. I’ll be ready!

It’s a big sports day tomorrow. Go Niners! Game 6. Go Heat! Woo!!!

My new bag arrived today. I’m so in love with it. I think it’ll be one of my errand bags. I don’t like being weighed down. It’s the perfect size! And I love the color. 🥰

Well, it’s time to call it a day. I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.
