Day 106.

Happy Birthday to you, Ariana Grande! 🖤 Throwback to the last concert I attended. December 2019! She’s always so much fun.

Fatigued. Dealt with more trauma in our neighborhood. It has happened five times dating back to 2019. It’s very scary. We just gotta be vigilant. I don’t understand why people continue to target the same car. Let alone the same neighborhood. 🤬

Animal Crossing update: Bug Off taking place tomorrow! Super exciting. That’s all my villagers have been talking about for the last week. I was so confused. Lol.

Masks. None of them fit me properly! They either folds my ears over or just slip off completely. I lost money since I can’t return it due to the incorrect size. Shoulda just went with a medium. Ugh. That’s my bad. I measured from my bridge to my chin too. Sigh. Please take COVID19 seriously!!! Cases are increasing in California. San Francisco has halted reopening businesses.

It’s been a bleh kinda day for me. I hope it’s better tomorrow. Glad it’s the weekend.

And let’s arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor! Thinking of Elijah McClain and his family too.

Gotta practice the uke. Enjoy the weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 105.

RIP Michael Jackson. ❤️

I hope I’m not coming down with something. I’ve got a dry cough and my throat is scratchy. I’ll take my temp shortly. 😬 (No temp. Whew.)

I got up at a decent time, but I ended up falling asleep for 2.5 more hours. I didn’t feel too bad. I got around to doing my laundry too. Yay! I did two loads. My jackets are finally clean.

Super proud of myself. I didn’t nap today. Definitely feeling it. Ahh. I’m planning to sleep a little early tonight. Anyway, I cleaned a few areas in my room today. It’s so easy to make things messy, but harder to clean. Does that happen to anyone else?

Animal Crossing update: I finally grabbed a few money bags on my island. I’ve got some more so I’m doing okay with bells. I did a little shopping and sold a bunch of items. I also paid some of my loan off. Sold the last of my turnips. The price hasn’t been more than 200. Ugh!

I’m gonna finish exercising, practice a bit of my uke, and reward myself with a green tea face mask. I also updated my laptop. It took forever. Must sort through my archives. I have so many pictures. I want to organize it all.

That was my Thursday. June is almost done. Looking forward to July! Hope y’all had a good one. Posting a throwback photo btw. That’s Bianca and I in Vegas in 2010. Our first visit. I loved that black and blue dress. 🤓🥂 Take care!

Good night.

Day 104.

It was indeed a happy Wednesday for me! I was about to sleep, but the results for my echo were released at 5am. My heart looks good and there are no significant changes compared to the one that I had in 11/2019. Yay!!! So grateful. 💜

I randomly woke up at 10:30am. Our dog heard noises and it turns out it was just my sister. Lol. So since I was awake I decided to play some Animal Crossing. My island is still a hot mess. Oh well. I made all this fencing, but I don’t know what to do with it. My playground is still a work in progress too. Mehhh.

I made banana bread. I needed to destress. My sisters brought Sal to the groomers, so I decided to bake before they got back. It’s a simple and delicious recipe! Next on the to bake list is pound cake. 😋

We got to catch up with our friend via text. Lots of new things going on with her. I’m so proud! ❤️ I’m still figuring things out for myself. I’m at a crossroads. Sigh.

I fell asleep. My nap was supposed to be an hour. It became 1.5 hours. Whoops. I’m planning to be much more active tomorrow. Gotta tackle laundry.

Must practice my uke and take my evening meds. That was my Wednesday. Btw I ordered two new masks. One of them is floral and the other one is Sailor Moon! 🙂

Hope y’all had a good one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 103.

When you’re tired the next day. That’s me! 😬 I tried to fight off taking a nap, but I was unsuccessful. I fell asleep for a few hours. I don’t remember much from the day other than having lunch and I just had dinner.

Animal Crossing update: I’m planning to redo my island entrance. I’m thinking something with waterfalls. I’m getting overwhelmed with flowers. 🙃 I might start on that tonight. I also want to give my island some dimension. I really want to just pay off my loan. It’ll be another few weeks.

Life update: it’s been 2 years since Sal became a part of our family. She really is a delicate flower. She enjoys the quiet, treats, and naps on cozy blankets. I’ll always remember that day. We were minutes away from home and then we got into a car accident. Thankfully everyone was okay. But it’s still a bit traumatic to this day. I had some bruises on my body. I can remember the impact too. I’m healing. ❤️

I was supposed to do laundry, but I’ll get to that tomorrow.

MLB will have a season. I’ve got mixed emotions. 1. The season is short. Why have it at all? 2. I don’t think that social setting is safe yet. 3. The DH in the NL. 😒 I guess I’ll watch, but it’s not 162 games. Mehhh.

And please wear your masks! 😷 Folx are being combative about it. There’s a surge in cases in California. Please give the rest of us a fighting chance. I’m so passionate about this because I fall into the vulnerable population. I want “normalcy” too, but it’ll take much longer if you don’t comply. Do your part! End rant.

Well, that was my Tuesday. Random, but I really want to bake brownies again. The ones we made yesterday were a cake texture. The fudge ones are the best.

Hope y’all had a good one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 102.

I had a case of the Mondays. It’s also because I stayed up to watch Volume 3 of Dear White People. ☺️ I’m binge watching. I’ll slow down. I have 7 episodes left.

So I slept in. When I got up I was able to have lunch – leftovers from Wingstop. Afterwards I took care of the dishes. I listened to The Carpenters for a good half hour or so.

Animal Crossing update: I’ve planted a lot of money trees. It’s helping me pay off my loan and putting bells into my savings. I finally got the dandy hat I’ve been looking for. My King Sized Homer look is complete. The Simpsons ftw! 😊

I was feeling tired so I decided to nap. I got up in time to have dinner. We also made brownies to commemorate our brother’s work anniversary and Sal’s adoption day which is technically tomorrow. So cute. Sal is very silly and her personality is precious.

I’ve gotta clean a few more things, play my uke, and exercise before the day is over. That was my Monday. Hope y’all had a good one! Take care.

Good night.

Day 101.

Happy Father’s Day! Love you, Dad. ❤️

My sleep was terrible last night. My anxiety kept me up again. That’s okay though. I watched Dear White People until I fell asleep. Netflix FTW!

I ordered an Animal Crossing pin from a college friend. She’s so talented! I bought the Celeste pin. An ode to Sailor Moon. 🌙

I’m still all up in my feelings. I finally did a round a yoga after a week off. It was tough, but I survived. The stretches and other exercises I usually do afterwards I decided to do in the beginning. I had to change it up. It’ll be a mellow day for me tomorrow.

Animal Crossing update: I almost caught a scorpion today. No luck. I’ll try again tomorrow. I’ve got Christmas decor now thanks to the BFF. Too funny. She time traveled. 😜 Still paying off that loan.

Just practiced my uke. I needed a refresher for Stand By Me. I remember it again.

That was my Sunday. I hope you all had a great day. Here’s to a new week! Take care. 💕

Good night.

Day 100.

Happy Summer! ☀️

It’s been 100 days since work shut down and the shelter in place soon followed. Mind blown. 😱 I’m doing okay. I miss doing simple and mundane tasks outside. I wish I took advantage of it before the pandemic. Sigh.

Before I went to sleep I watched Knives Out with the fam. It was really good! It had me guessing the entire time. The cast was great. 🙂 Check it out if you’re into mystery.

It’s been a sad day. The news was heartbreaking. 😭 My friend’s dog, Louie, crossed over to the rainbow bridge today. I met him in January 2013. I think he barked at me. Haha. He eventually mellowed out as the evening went on. Louie was one of the sweetest dogs ever. I remember the random trip to Portland and he joined us for our adventure. I also visited LA in 2016 (that’s me with Louie!) and he followed us all over the house. Time flies. Pets teach us so much along the way. I cherish every family pet we have had. RIP dear Louie. ❤️🐶

My classmate from high school also shared her story of miscarriage. My heart breaks for her too. Thank you for sharing Layla’s story. 💕

I didn’t do much today. I slept in. We made mochi pancakes in the afternoon with bananas and strawberries on the side. Afterwards, I decided to lie down and play some Animal Crossing. My island is a mess and so is my house. Slowly getting my loan down. It’ll be another few weeks. I don’t time travel. Many of my friends do, but I’m content playing in real time.

I just bought Affinity Photo. I need a photo editor on my laptop. Adobe programs are out of my budget. Their sale ends tonight. If you need a photo editing program, check them out. It’s a decent alternative!

It’s Father’s Day tomorrow and I find myself being happy and sad. 😢 I feel so many emotions. It’s tough sometimes, but I always find a way to make it through the day. It’s been complicated. I love Dad very much. It’s a generational difference as well as a cultural. I won’t elaborate much more.

I’m hoping for a better week. I’m still feeling kind of down with my current situation. I won’t ever know if I don’t ask. So I’m going to type up an email and I’ll go from there. I do need advice from other patients. Sighhh. Just breathe.

Gotta practice my uke. 🙂

I hope you all had a nice Saturday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 99.

Here’s to Juneteenth! I remain in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters. Black Lives Matter! 🖤

The weekend is here! I’m so excited. It allows me to reenergize and center myself for the new week. My mind has been heavy. I’m at a crossroads in my life and I’m not sure what to do. It makes me sad, tired, and a little angry. I need answers, but I think I must look within. Maybe in a dream?

This time last year I was in Paris. What a beautiful city. I would love to go back! I really don’t know when considering the pandemic. My travel dreams have been halted and I’m okay with it. I just want everyone happy, safe, and healthy.

I took it easy today. I watched TV with the sisters, had brunch, and then I took a nap. My energy has depleted as of late. I did drink 2 kencko smoothies. My next shipment will be shipped in a few days. I feel better about myself since I’m getting fruits and veggies a few times out of the week. I haven’t been exercising since my energy levels are low. 😕 Maybe I can do some yoga this weekend.

Animal Crossing update: I’m revamping everything and trying to sell everything. Must pay off my current loan though. I want my kitchen! 300+ more payments and then I’m free until the next loan. Haha. Oh man.

I’m gonna practice a bit of my uke. And then my usual nightcap is watching Dear White People. I’m on volume 2. Woo! I really like the show. The cast is great. 😊

Well, I hope you all had a nice Friday. Enjoy the weekend. Take care! ❤️

Good night.

Day 98.

I’ve been feeling quite tired today. I didn’t accomplish much other than paying for a bill. I decided to sleep after I did that. I slept for a few hours. I just don’t have much energy compared to yesterday. Each day is different.

Animal Crossing update: the store has been moved and I just redid the entrance for it. It’s simple, but now I have some use for a lot of the items I’ve left lying around on the island. Yay! There’s progress. I’m new to the franchise, so I’m learning a lot. I enjoy the DIY recipes. 🙂 I’m still looking for the iron garden chair. I hope I find it soon or one of my villagers gives it to me.

I didn’t get a yoga session in. I just feel depleted. 😞 Hoping for a more productive day tomorrow. That all really depends on how I’m feeling. June is flying and I’m trying to do as much as I can on my list of things to accomplish.

Might watch a movie tonight. I’m in the middle of Kiki’s Delivery Service. I must practice my uke too.

I was updated with work stuff. That’s still on my mind a lot for the upcoming year. I’ll think about that another day. Hope you all had a nice Thursday! Take care.

Good night.

Day 97.

I gotta get back to my exercise routine. I’ve been too busy with other things! Hopefully I can get a workout in tomorrow.

I had a tech appointment today. I went in for an echo, a sonogram of my heart. The mask I brought with me wasn’t allowed. I was able to wear it the last time. I found that a bit odd. They gave me a disposable one and was allowed to proceed to the elevator. The tech was really nice. We discussed everything. I was a bit anxious heading over. I hope everything looks good.🤞🏼 Thankful that our aunt was able to give us a ride.

We did some grocery shopping. I helped unload. I wasn’t allowed to leave the car. Too risky! Yay more food and necessities! 👍🏼 We brought back chicken bakes and hot dogs. The weather was really nice today too so I ordered boba milk tea for the fam.

Animal Crossing update: my island is full! I’m happy with my current villagers. I’m still paying off my current loan and figuring out where to move some buildings. If I only knew where to properly place everything in the beginning. Oh well. Lol. I need bells!

I’m about to practice my uke and heating up my leftover quesadilla. I’m pretty tired. There was a lot going on. I plan to take it easy tomorrow, but remain productive. The week is flying.

Hope your Wednesdays went well! Take care.

Good night.
