Berkeley.

Quick stop in Berkeley on Friday. We’re rarely in the area! Made the most of our time. The food makes everything worthwhile. 🥰

Third culture bakery is a fave! Got our usual order of mochi doughnuts and muffins. I also ordered a matcha latte with regular milk and honey. SO GOOD. 😋 For lunch, we went to #POKI. I had the cooked salmon over rice. Loved it! Would get it again.

Also got to see our bestie later that day. Always great to hear from her!! 💗

I can’t believe it’s already Sunday! I’m still processing the last two weeks. Trying to improve my life in so many ways. A death reminds me of my own mortality, but to also cherish my time here on earth. We miss our uncle! 🤍

I’ve played a lot of Animal Crossing New Leaf. It’s actually my fave right now compared to New Horizons. Wild! I played everyday in 2020. I haven’t played much as of late.

Well, hoping to ko soon. I’m sleepy. But I also want to watch a movie. Maybe Tall Girl 2?!

Good night.

35.

Farewell to 34, hello to 35! Time flies. It was a beautiful day well spent with family and amazing food. We’re still working on leftovers. It was a joyous time celebrating our new year. 💜

Part of me is sad because I’m grieving the passing of our paternal uncle. I really wish we could be with the rest of our family in Canada. Maybe we can visit next year? His first day of visitation was yesterday. Today will be emotional. Holding my dear family close to my heart. We sent over a floral arrangement and it’s beautiful.

I can still hear his voice in my head. Very soft-spoken, but kind. My proudest moments were speaking Kapampángan with him. He’s the only one out of the siblings who was born in Pampanga. I think that’s awesome!!! I hope to see it one day. 🇵🇭

I’m just reminiscing. I’ll have more to say come Friday. I hope I can get through the day later. It’s been heavy since last week. Praying for my uncle’s beautiful soul. 🤍

Good night.

Faithful.

I will ride with my team win or lose. There is no in between or switching teams. I AM LOYAL. It’ll be us one day. It really will. Until then, Go Niners! ❤️ #FTTB

Btw my favorite part was the Pepsi Halftime Show. 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Good night.

Life update.

It’s been warm in San Francisco! It’s been nice, but also concerning. Growing up I remember February always brought rain and the cold. I don’t hate it! It’s nice to walk around and catch some rays. Global warming and climate change is happening. Terrifying!!!

The most important errand I ran this week was renewing my DL. I made my appointment to the DMV beforehand and prepared all the necessary documents. I was there 30 minutes at most. I hope my picture turned out okay! 😂

Still praying and thinking of our uncle. Still haven’t been sleeping well, but I’m trying. Worrying puts my body under a lot of stress. Trying to normalize a routine that works for me.

Temp work is picking back up again! I logged an hour, but I had to nap afterwards. The heat wasn’t helping. I hope to get more done next week.

I’m trying to figure out my Saturday plans. Hmm…I might just stay in. I really wanted to make a quick trip to See’s. Their chocolate is the best. 😋 Birthday countdown is 8 days!!! It’s a mix of dread and excitement. Ahh. But I always tell myself, it’s a privilege to grow old. ❤️

I hope to sleep soon. Wishing you all well! Happy weekend ☀️

Take care!!

Never mind.

Haven’t been able to blog daily, so I’ll just type up an entry when I can. 😬

I had a very busy day. Now I’m tired. I’d love to nap right now. 😴 But first I’m going to look into impala skates. I want to start rollerblading again! I used to all the time growing up. I think it’d be fun to pick it up again.

Still praying for our uncle. We love you, Tito Roland! 💗

ACNH not being good to me right now. I ordered a statue and it hasn’t been delivered to me. It’s going on 2 days. Wth?!! 😤

Don’t have any exciting weekend plans. I’ll be cleaning and gathering donations or putting things up on Poshmark.

Alright I’m going to lie down. Happy weekend to all!

Good night.

Happy February!

I’ll be blogging daily for the month. February holds a special place in my heart. Bday month! Yay 💜

I’m in a somber mood. One, the Jimmy G era is about to close in SF. I really wanted us/him to get #6 for us and it wasn’t in the cards. 😭💔 I know he’s handsome, but he’s such a classy dude. This year was heavy and he carried himself with grace. 3-5 to the NFC Championship Game! Incredible. I wish him all the best wherever he goes. I’ll be rooting for him always. Thanks for everything, Jimmy! You’ll be missed.

Two, our uncle is very sick. I’m trying to hold it together, but I’ve cried a few times. It’s difficult being separated from each other during this time. The pandemic robbed us of time to be together. I pray for his comfort and peace. I’m so grateful that we’ve been able to share memories together since 2012. That was a life changing year and it’s still felt to this day.

There are other things going on with me and I’m honestly taking it a day at a time. I haven’t been super motivated and I feel a bit hopeless at times with the job search. I yearn to go back a few years when I was really happy and on top of the world! Thankfully, I get to chat with my therapist next week so I hope it’s a good session.

I’m eating comfort food, but also trying to establish an exercise routine that’ll work for me. We finally made Filipino breakfast: rice, eggs, tomatoes, spam, and longanisa. 😋 This is why I gotta work out. Lol.

I look forward to the rest of this month! It’s only day 1. I’m going to make the most of it. 💗

I’m hoping to sleep soon. It’s been hard to fall and stay asleep. My thoughts have been racing.

Good night.

😭😩💔

Another heartbreaking loss. The Niners get so close, yet so far. It was an incredible season nonetheless! 3-5 to the NFC Championship Game. What a ride!

Jimmy might’ve played his last game in a Niners uniform. 🥺 There’s a lot of question marks going into the offseason. I wrote him a letter back in December. I really hope he finds the time to respond, but if not – I tried! Didn’t get to attend a game this season because of Covid. It’s not safe for me to be out there. Ahh!

I’m also emo due to a lot of personal things going on in my life. I hope I see the light at the end of the tunnel. This pandemic has been a lot. February is fast approaching and I look forward to celebrating our bday! It really is the small things. I’m trying to stay positive, but it’s been tough.

I’ll always love the 49ers! Born and bred in SF. So much history!!! Thank you for the memories. Here’s to next year. Go Bengals! 🧡

Good night.

Some thoughts.

22 days into 2022 and I’m still feeling a bit blah. Year 3 of this pandemic and it’s exhausting! Shout out to all the healthcare workers. Thank you for all that you do.

Applying to remote jobs has been a drag. Staying hopeful, but lacking motivation. I’m so close to completing my certification for my TEFL, but I’ve put that on hold for now. I have until the summer, yet I’d like to complete it before my birthday next month.

This year is a fresh start! I’m excited for what maybe in store. I’m also emo since we haven’t been able to see family due to Omicron. I think it’s subsiding in the Bay Area. Great news! I’m yearning to travel, but that’s still on hold. I’m doing my best to take care of myself holistically. It’s tough, but baby steps.

I took a nap so I’m awake. It’s officially game day. Niners vs. Packers @ Lambeau Field! I’m nervous excited. Not sure if I’ll get much sleep tbh. 🙃 GO NINERS!!!! #FTTB

Wishing you all a great weekend! Stay safe and be well.

Good night.
