Day 144.

Happy Monday! 💟

It was a productive day. My highlight was visiting our Lola (grandma). We’ve been talking to her on the phone these last few months, but she loves it when we stop by so that’s what we did in the afternoon. We baked brownies last night and placed them in an airtight container. It’s her favorite dessert. It’s been tough not being able to hug her. 😭 But we love seeing her happy.

Before we went home we stopped by Burger King to grab lunch. I really wanted a Whopper. The commercial worked on me! Haha. It’s my favorite thing to order. The Hershey pie too. 😋

After lunch I washed dishes. It piled up these last few days. I always listen to music to get it done faster.

I took a nap since I woke up early. I needed the two hours of sleep. My pin, scrunchies, mask, and Switch Lite case arrived today. I love receiving happy mail! It’s the best. 🥰

Giants didn’t win in Colorado. Hoping they take a game before heading to LA again later this week. Ah!

I’ll be tackling my to do list all week. I’ll get it all done. Anyway, we’re currently watching Forrest Gump. One of my faves!!

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 143.

Happy Sunday! Here’s to a great week. 🙂

It was a lazy Sunday for me. I had a decent night’s sleep, but I still felt tired. It’s my norm. I did get up to eat lunch and dinner. I napped twice. I did catch the Giants game on the radio before my nap. We were going for the sweep, but I’ll take the series win! Gigantes 🖤🧡

We just made brownies for our Lola. We’ll drop in for a quick visit tomorrow. We miss her! ❤️

I exercised for a bit. It burns, but it’s good. I must build my endurance and stamina again. 💪🏽

Animal Crossing update: I got my turnips in the morning and watched the fireworks before 9pm tonight. It’s so much fun to watch! The villagers love it. You can win bubbles, sparklers, and balloons from Redd’s Raffle. I’m gonna catch it again before midnight.

I’m hoping for a super productive week! There’s so much I need to do, but it’ll all get done.

Take care, everyone!

Good night.

Day 142.

Dating apps haven’t been treating me well. I really don’t like it when people are rude! Pet peeve. Moving on.

Anyway, it was a pretty chill day for me. I slept in for a bit and decided to get started on lunch: oven baked bacon mac & cheese. This was a different recipe. The bacon was also frozen and I was too impatient to fry it on the stovetop. I shoulda just fried it instead of opting for the oven. Lesson learned. It turned out okay. Pretty delicious, but was definitely missing the crisp factor.

I watched some NBA games on tv and listened to the Giants game on the radio for a few innings. I was feeling a little under the weather. It might’ve been the bacon. So I took a nap. It helped! Giants with the W!!! Solano is rolling.

Now I’m a bit more awake. Just snacked on some chips and chocolate. Made another plate of garlic mashed potatoes and mac & cheese.

Animal Crossing update: It was a typical day on my island. The villagers are super excited about the fireworks tomorrow. I am too! Should be a lot of fun.

I’m hoping to be more productive tomorrow. I’d like to start my class soon. I’m also brainstorming for my potential courses. Would also like to visit our grandma and say hello from afar. We miss her! ❤️

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

Good night.

Day 141.

TGIF! 😎

  • I slept okay.
  • I finished Kiki’s Delivery Service. I loved it! I want a red bow now.
  • I helped out with lunch this afternoon. We made spam, garlic rice, and fried eggs. We also had tomatoes. We also made spam musubi for the first time. Turned out well!
  • Boba and ice cream for dessert. Boba was delicious! We ordered from honey creme. I’ll try the ice cream in a bit.
  • Washed the dishes.
  • I’m finally registered for my TEFL course! Let’s do this!!! I’m excited to learn again.
  • Catching up with friends via text. Yay!
  • I realized even more today that self-care is so important. I played my usual round of Animal Crossing and listened to the Giants game on the radio. I’m also listening to music right now. The little things energize me.
  • Now I’m trying to figure out if I should buy this cool Simpsons print. Decisions.

That was my Friday! Time to recharge this weekend. Happy weekend to all. Take care!

Good night.

Day 140.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend. 😎

I was able to buy the Colourpop Sailor Moon eyeshadow palette. The blushes were in my cart, but I didn’t check out fast enough and they sold out. I hope there’s another restock. I was a bit frustrated with the process tbqh. I wasn’t alone in feeling that. The collection was released at 10am PDT. I entered the contest on IG, Twitter, and FB for a chance to win the entire collection. So maybe there’s luck on my side. 🙂

I stayed up watching the first season of Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love. It’s such a cute show and the cast is really good. I might start Part 2 tonight.

It’s been a busy, but productive week! I’ve got some things to prep for the potential after school enrichment courses I might be teaching in the Fall. Must brainstorm! It’s different from what I typically take care of at work, but it’s a nice way to share my passions with the community. 🙂 It was nice catching up with the boss.

I also caught up with my therapist on the phone after three weeks. It’s great to just talk and get her perspective.

Listened to some of the Giants game on the radio. Watched a bit of the Clippers/Lakers game too. Basketball is back!

There’s a lot to do these next upcoming weeks, but I’m looking forward to the change. Yay!

Animal Crossing update: Bought another painting from Redd. I check online to make sure it’s authentic. It was! Finally caught the gigas giant clam. It was challenging to get. It took me a few tries. I donated it to my island’s museum!

Uke update: I’m playing Somewhere Over The Rainbow with less errors. This is huge! I even recorded audio of me playing this afternoon. I sound good. When I’m really comfortable I’ll shoot a video to share with friends and family.

A&W rules btw! I love their Coney Cheese dog and curds.

Well, that was my day. Hope yours went well! Take care always.

Good night.

Day 139.

Happy Wednesday! It’s almost the weekend. Can’t wait. I’m sad to see July go, but I’m ready for August. Lots of revamping. Yay!!!

I was quite tired today. My sleep has been up and down. I’m trying to normalize it. SIP has been tough to navigate. I woke up from my nap about 45 minutes ago. Days are repetitive so I do my best to change it up. I really want to start doing yoga again. I was so consistent back in June. 😞 I’m being patient with myself.

The highlight of my day was cooking with my sisters. I contributed my peeling potatoes and cooking rice. We made adobo! So good. I love Filipino food. 😋

Animal Crossing update: Pascal gave me the DIY recipe for the mermaid dresser. I’m getting close to the entire collection. And the new update for fireworks, dream sequence, and so much more is being released tomorrow! Some folks have already had it for a few hours. I’ll just wait until midnight.

I’m dealing with some anxiety, but I know I’ll work through it. Discomfort is real, but it’s how we grow. Our comfort zones are cool, but it’s too safe. Although 2020 has been something, it’s good to challenge ourselves! I’m still brainstorming about what online class I want to offer in the Fall. I’ll get there.

I also renewed my Flickr account. It hasn’t been active since January? So confusing. Glad it’s reactivated. I back up my pictures on there.

Giants win! 🖤🧡 It was a walk off. Thanks Yaz!! Our offense is showing up. It’s nice to see. I watched for a few innings and then I took my nap. Lol.

That was my day. Hope yours went well. Take care!

Good night.

Day 138.

Happy Tuesday!

I was able to secure the things I needed at IKEA. A lot of low stock due to the pandemic so I was unable to proceed with the original items I wanted. Delivery is set for August. Yay!

Animal Crossing update: 7/30 is the day! We get fireworks every Sunday in August. So exciting!! 😊 It’s something to look forward to before the week ends. Pascal dropped some more knowledge. He’s so funny. Love him!

I didn’t get to nap today so I’m pretty tired. I stayed awake so I could eat my In-N-Out burger in time. After dinner we tuned in for the Giants home opener. We lost. Final score 5 SD, 3 SF. New day, new game tomorrow.

We also watched a Jeopardy episode on Netflix. One of our fave shows at home.

I received some good news today. I must brainstorm on an online course to offer in the Fall if work doesn’t open in time. It might take me a while, but I think I’ll figure it out.

I took it easy today. I’m planning to be more productive tomorrow.

That was my Tuesday. Hope everyone had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 137.

It’s Monday and I was super productive. I’m clearing out the clutter. I tackled papers and receipts today. Proud of myself! 😁

I took it easy today. I napped since I was lacking energy. It helped since I washed a bunch of dishes. I really don’t like having dishes left in the sink.

Didn’t really get to play Animal Crossing today. I played for a bit before my nap. Might play a bit before bed.

I’m hoping to finalize the things that I need for my room. Storage and organization go hand in hand. I’m excited for a fresh start!

Giants were off today, but it’s not looking too good for the league. The Miami Marlins have tested positive for coronavirus. 14 of them I believe. 😬 The season might be called. It would be sad, but it would be for the best.

I plan to turn in early. Take care!

Good night.

Day 136.

Happy Sunday! I can’t believe this is the final week of July. Time is flying.

I started my morning off with Animal Crossing. I bought turnips and didn’t miss Daisy Mae compared to last weekend. Hurrah! Then I made tea, plated cookies, and got ready for my video chat with my friend, Diana. She’s doing big things and I’m so proud of her. Best of luck in Baltimore! I’ll miss ya lots. 🥰

I took a quick nap before engaging in a zoom meeting about social justice and the BLM movement. I enjoyed the conversation and I’m glad I was able to contribute to the discussion. I’m evolving and keeping an open mind to keep the conversation going. BLM 🖤

After that I had a late lunch. I also measured my window area for where my new desk will potentially stand. There’s so much I want to tackle. A day at a time.

I also got to catch up with my friend Brandy via text. She’s doing well too!

Online dating is still something for me. I think I’m being ghosted. Lol. I’m living my truth and doing my best to be transparent. If a person can’t accept that, thank u, next! No response since early this morning. I won’t think about it too much. We just started talking.

Anyway, the Giants are heading home after they split the series in LA. 2-2! 😎🖤🧡 Best news ever!!

I’m hoping for a great week. Take care! 😷

Good night.

Day 135.

Today was a good day. Giants with the W in LA! 😀 Go Giants!!!

Animal Crossing update: 2nd Bug-Off event! I did pretty well for myself. I redeemed my points and got an artisanal bug cage, ladybug rug, and ladybug umbrella. I fixed up part of my island and started to work with my flowers. It’ll take a while until everything is organized. Progress.

We watched Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix. It was a really good episode. I also watched more Indian Matchmaking. It’s only 8 episodes. I’m on e5. I’m invested.

I’m brainstorming at the moment for some room upgrades: desk, more storage, and a dresser. I’m finalizing which pieces I want. I’m on a budget, but so far I think I’m doing pretty well. I’m excited for the new changes especially if I need to WFH come Autumn. I’m planning to start my certification course for TEFL. It’s a good alternative and I hope I enjoy it.

Food consumption today: chicken katsu plate + boba. It’s a combo I haven’t had in a while. Time to save $. It’s so easy to order delivery, but I like cooking and baking a lot. Just didn’t have the energy and time.

It’ll be a busy day tomorrow, but I’m looking forward to it especially my video chat with my college friend.

Dating apps are daunting, but I’m sticking with it. We’ll see. LOL. Played my uke to de-stress.

Hope everyone had a nice Saturday. Take care!

Good night.
