Day 207.

Happy Monday!

Today is always a heavy day. 2011 was such a sad year. I still grieve. I wish I had more time with our Lola. I can’t believe it’s been 9 years since her passing. We miss you and we love you. ❤️

My time off is winding down. I need to get back to routine! And I’ll be driving this time around. I’ve gotta practice and always remain confident. I know I can!!!!

Animal Crossing update: Al is finally moving out! He’s been on my island since April. Happy trails to him! I’m excited to see which new villager will be moving in. I got more DIY recipes for Halloween. All my pumpkins have grown! Ready to decorate some more for Halloween. 👻

I’ve got my dermatology appointment tomorrow. I hope something can be done about my skin tags. Freeze them and then snip it off please!! I’m so self-conscious. 🥴

Watched the ALDS. Rooting for Oakland. They’re the only Bay Area reps left. Boo Houston! 😒 And I’m cheering hard for SD!!

I’m hoping to sleep soon. I was supposed to do my laundry, but I can save it for tomorrow. It’s getting colder in the city. I miss the summer!

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 193.

Happy Monday! Today would’ve been Laki’s 20th Birthday. I miss him so much. He was one of the sweetest dogs ever. Happy Birthday! 💛🐶 We made mochi pancakes for him. So good!

I slept in. I was tired. I watched Before Sunrise before bed. I loved it! Planning to watch the 2nd film in the series later on this week. A young Ethan Hawke! Great casting.

So some good news. The sister and I were rocking out to One Direction! Then a text from him appears. I haven’t read it. Anxiety…lol. It’s almost been three days since I heard from him. We’re friends, but like I’m interested. And I don’t know where he stands. This pandemic makes everything more awkward and weird. So that’s where I’m at right now. Stay tuned. 🙃

We had Taco Bell in honor of Laki. Hurrah!

Niners injuries have been confirmed. Bosa and Thomas are out – torn ACLs. 😭 I’ll miss seeing them out there. Get well soon! ❤️💛

I still gotta exercise. I can’t nap since I have an important doctor’s appointment tomorrow. I’m looking forward to seeing my medical team and update them about my life. 💜

Giants are losing to the Rockies. Oh well. Let’s do better the rest of the home stand. Postseason or bust. Lol.

Hoping to be more productive this week. Animal Crossing has been okay. I sold a bunch of fish to C.J. today.

Time to work out. Listening to BLACKPINK to get me pumped.

Have a 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 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.

Travel memories.

I started traveling back in 2018. Canada was the first place I visited. They’re just up North, but it was a long time coming. We visited our relatives.

I’m so very grateful for my passport. I wish I would have traveled sooner, but I dealt with a lot of personal matters from 17 to 20. I’m now stronger mentally. But those were some very sad times. It’s all part of my story and I don’t ever stray from it. 💜

The world is such a different place right now. Please continue to do your part during this pandemic!

Here’s a picture of me at the Louvre Museum. Hello Mona Lisa! I was so excited to see her. Crowds everywhere, but I got close enough. I was part of a tour group with my family. Wonderful memory.

Alright. Time for bed. Later!

Day 43.

Happy Birthday, Coco dear! ❤️🐶 We miss you so much. We love you. We decided to bake cupcakes and order In-N-Out to celebrate. The fries were always her favorite.

I had terrible anxiety before bed. So I stayed up watching Hulu and played a bit of Animal Crossing.

I woke up at 9am, but decided to nap in the afternoon after playing some more Animal Crossing. My house is built! I’m loving the game.

Practiced my uke. I’m on Day 15. I practiced my strumming and chord changes. I’m getting more comfortable. Any kind of progress makes me happy. 🙂

TGIF! I’m glad it’s the weekend again. I always rest as much as I can. Hope you all had a great day.

Good night.
