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.

Day 211.

TGIF! Happy Friday!! 🙂

Sanrio goodies arrived today. I love Hello Kitty!!! I hope to see you soon, Japan. 🇯🇵💗

I’ve had Little Mix’s new song on repeat all day – Not a Pop Song! I absolutely love it. Their voices are amazing. I hope to see them live in the future. Girl power!!!

I stopped by work today. I took my COVID-19 test, picked up my PPE, and parking permit. It was so nice to see everyone after 7 months of being apart. I’m anxious, nervous, and excited for my first day back, but I’m looking forward to having a routine again. Thankful that my aunt was free to give me a ride. Yay! But I need to start driving myself. Lol for real. It’s been a long time.

Day 1 of Pinayista Summit 2020 was today. I’m looking forward to the weekend! I’ve already met a lot of wonderful people. I can’t wait to see what else is in store. I’m empowered! ❤️

I also caught my friend’s presentation in my native language. Thanks Kirby! 😄 I was listening and processing the conversation. I’ve gotta practice some more. But for the most part, I understood what was being said.

Animal Crossing update: my island is doing well. Tex is fun to talk to. Love his personality!

I’m now eating peppermint bark and getting ready for Christmas. Haha. I’m looking forward to Halloween too, but holiday music is the best. 🥰

The Heat got the W tonight. I caught the 2nd half. Game 6 should be even more exciting!! Go Miami!!! 🖤❤️

Take care and enjoy the weekend!

Good night.

Day 210.

Whoa, it’s Thursday!

I stayed up watching Beauty and the Beast before bed. It’s one of our faves! And then we watched the Jump5 music video. They dance and sing so well!! We also watched Office Space in the afternoon. I forgot how funny that movie was. So good.

Animal Crossing update: Tex has moved in! Currently unboxing his belongings. My island is doing alright. Still decorating for Halloween. 🖤🧡

I signed up for the Pinayista Summit for this weekend. I need connection, healing, hope, and reflection. It’s been a tough year, but I believe I’ll be stronger because of 2020. Sending love to everyone! 🥰

Haircut is set for next week. COVID-19 test is on Tuesday. Back to work next Friday! Whoa. Time flies.

Had to take a nap this afternoon. I’m feeling okay now.

Postseason baseball is disappointing me. Lol. I miss the Giants! The A’s are gone. No more Bay Area representation. 😞

Glad it’s Friday tomorrow. I need to recharge and figure things out for myself.

Good night.

Day 209.

It’s Wednesday! We’ve made it to the middle of the week. 💗

Today was our Tito Rino’s funeral. I wish I could’ve been there, but it’s still too risky. I said a prayer for him. He’s truly missed. 🤍 Family over everything. It’s important to keep in touch with everyone on the regular especially during the pandemic and once life normalizes again.

I had to get up early to watch the dogs. They’re such a handful. Rascals! I had coffee and snacks to keep me going for a few hours. I played Animal Crossing to pass the time. Tex is moving in. Kinda wish I would’ve found my own villager, but that’s fine. I know for next time to seek a new one out ASAP.

I was able to clean, apply Vaseline, and put a new bandage on my skin – the one near my eye and the one near my armpit. Must take care of it daily.

Did a load of laundry after my shower. I was so productive today! Planning to clean tomorrow.

Caught part of the VP debate. I didn’t watch all of it. Progress needs to be made again in our country. Protect womyn and their rights! Protect those with underlying conditions! Let’s have a conversation about racial & social justice, climate change, global warming, and the importance of science. We need strong leaders! BIDEN HARRIS 2020! 💙

Watched Postseason baseball. Disappointed that the Padres didn’t tie the series versus LA. 😒 They gotta win the next one to stay afloat in the series. I hope they do. BEAT LA!!!! 🖤🧡

Still dealing with anxiety and being sad. I’ll make it! I know I will. My feelings are valid. Suppressing them won’t help me. Acceptance. Still staying away from a certain dating app. Once I’m brave again – I’ll return.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.
