Day 195.

Still feeling crappy, but I’m doing my best. 💜💪🏼💜 Angry about the Breonna Taylor news. Absolutely disgusting. Black Lives Matter! 🖤

I slept in. I stayed up watching The Outsiders before bed. Ralph Macchio! My childhood crush. 🥰 Still love him to this day. Might look into watching Cobra Kai.

Indian food for lunch! I love the garlic naan and chicken tikka masala. I ordered a mango lassi too. Everything was delicious!!

Animal Crossing update: I forgot I expanded my house. Got a new loan to pay off, but I now have a room upstairs! Thinking of making that room my bedroom. We’ll see.

Renewed my domain and WP plan. Yay! More blog entries to come.

Watched Remember the Titans this afternoon. One of my favorite Disney movies. Denzel is so good!!! The cast is great and so is the music. ❤️

Giants win! Keeping my fingers crossed for the last few games. We’ll see how it turns out. Go Giants!! 🖤🧡

I caught up with a good friend via text. She’s been encouraging and helping me through my heartache. The feeling still sucks. 😢

Everything is still a waiting game for work. Hopefully we go back in two weeks. I’m anxious because I need to practice driving before then. Eep! I can do this though. I know I can.

That’s my Wednesday. I hope to be more productive tomorrow. I won’t exercise tonight. Maybe tomorrow? Or Friday?

Good night.

Day 171.

Happy Sunday! It’s a new week and I’m looking forward to what it brings. 🙏🏼 We watched The Little Mermaid before we slept. A childhood fave. 🧜🏼‍♀️

I took it easy. I slept in and I’ve been lying in bed. It’s been cold.

The highlight of my day was attending a zoom meeting for racial justice. It’s nice to hear and listen to others and their experiences. BLM! 🖤 I’ve got a list of new books to check out. I’m excited.

I’m currently catching up with a friend. So it’s nice to see how she’s doing!

Animal Crossing update: I slept in so I didn’t get my turnips. That’s okay. Lol. I’m taking in the final weekend of fireworks. I’ll miss it, but it’s been fun! 🎇🎆

I might eat a little something before bed. We ordered Korean food and boba. I requested salted cheese and they didn’t put it in. 😞 Next time.

Giants take the series in AZ! Trade deadline is tomorrow. The suspense is making me jumpy. Let’s see if they make a move.

Take care, y’all!

Good night.

Day 167.

It’s been a heavy day for me. I had to take a nap after hearing about the current events in sports, politics, and the murder of innocent people protesting for change! I’ve been very vocal about my political views. My blog is a place of love and safety. I will continue to support #BlackLivesMatter. 🖤

I’m also dealing with my own personal issues. I guess I’m trying to figure out what was said. Am I overthinking? Am I overreacting? I’m a strong Piscean womyn. I’ve always had good intuition. Of course people are owed the benefit of the doubt. So we shall see. I had to step away from my phone for the last few hours. I’ll respond when I’m not so emotionally charged and clear headed. This pandemic has become overwhelming. I miss social interaction especially in public settings, but I’m still doing my part and exercising caution no matter how much I want to meet somebody new.

I haven’t found the strength to study and take care of work stuff. Maybe I can work on something for an hour or two. I must play my uke too. I played some Animal Crossing too. I was quite distracted so I didn’t play for long. 🙃

I finished my 100 squats! I’m challenging myself to take care of my body and eat well. So far I’ve done 300. Another 300 more! I can!!! 💜💪🏼💜

Lastly, Happy National Dog Day! To the present and past puppers, thank you for your love and loyalty. We love you always! ❤️

Time to focus. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 158.

Happy Monday! It’s a new week and I’m ready to tackle so many things on my to do list. Must pace myself. Everything is a work in progress.

I’ve been listening to a lot of songs that are in tune with my mood. Most of the songs are uplifting! So many badass female artists and groups. I love it!!! 🥰

Animal Crossing update: I didn’t play for too long today. Caroline wanted to move out and I declined. That means someone will ask again in a few days. I hope it’s the villager I don’t really like.

I’m taking care of my room. So many moving pieces, but it’ll all get done. Breathe.

I did have a decent night’s sleep. There was no lightning or thunder. Our dog did wake me up at a really inconvenient time. I went back to sleep for a few hours.

I went for my afternoon walk. It’s nice to spend a few minutes outside. 😷 I’ve got errands to run tomorrow. It shouldn’t take long though. I hope all my labs are good. Must finish some of my exercises before the day ends.

I’m just all over the place. 🙃 I also caught up with a friend on IG and recommended Last Christmas. She’s watching it right now and we’ll discuss once she’s done.

Well, I hope y’all had a nice one. 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 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 85.

It was a busy but fun filled Animal Crossing day! I got to visit my friends islands. It’s all so cute. I need to revamp Mango. It’s tedious, but I’ll eventually get around to doing it. Little by little it’ll get done.

I made myself brunch today – a spinach and cheese omelette. It was really good. I’ll probably make another one on Sunday or something. I also made a cup of decaf English breakfast tea.

We watched a bit of Blast from the Past. Such a good movie! Love the cast.

Practiced my uke. It’s a daily thing now. I never forget. I want to learn new songs. I’m feeling more confident now.

I exercised today too. Yoga and the ab roller. It can be a challenge sometimes, but I keep going. I don’t want anything to stop me. Despite my chronic conditions, I believe I can do anything. It’s at my own pace. Exercising helps my mood.

TGIF! I’m looking forward to the weekend. ❤️

Lastly, Happy Birthday to Breonna Taylor! 👑 #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeforBre

Good night.

Day 81.

Happy June! Time to start anew. I did yoga today. I’m planning to complete all my exercise goals this month. It’s possible. 🙂

I watched Remember The Titans before bed. It’s one of my favorite sports films. I love the story, the cast, and the music. It’s great! Denzel Washington is also one of my fave actors. Love him!

I kinda got up at a decent time, but not really. Lol. Case of the Mondays.

Watched some Unsolved Mysteries with the fam. We learned about Coral Polge. She was a psychic artist from the UK. Her story is really interesting.

Afterwards I played some Animal Crossing. Lots of new stuff in store for the month! There are fireflies on the island now. And today was my villager’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Keaton! 😊

I helped with the trash and recycling. Then I practiced my yoga. I’m becoming flexible again. Yay! Played my uke too after I exercised.

Back to playing some more Animal Crossing. I need to sell all the fish I found. Woo.

I hope you all had a nice Monday. I continue to be in solidarity with all protestors. ✊🏽🖤 Keep fighting, y’all!

Good night.

Day 80.

Happy Sunday! I can’t believe it’s June tomorrow. May tested me, but I made it.

My heart and my body have been heavy. My mind has been restless. Although I’m not physically able to march and protest with the country, I’m in solidarity online especially with my social media platforms and my blog. It makes me so mad when people say a lot of ignorant things online. Racism is learned behavior. Let’s dismantle it!!! #BlackLivesMatter

I played some Animal Crossing and I practiced my uke. Video games and music make me happy.

I took care of some chores too. But I need to tackle my room. I really want to be productive this week. It’s a new month!

Lastly, I want to remember my friend Sarah. I miss her dearly and I think of her often. We love you. 💜💜💜💜💜 #lupuswarriors

Hope you all had a nice Sunday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 78.

Photo credit to Cleo Wade. 💕 I love her work.

I haven’t been feeling the greatest today. I dealt with a terrible stomachache. I had to sleep it away. I feel okay, but not 100%. I’m guessing it was probably the food I ate yesterday and the one meal I had today. 😔

Onto more serious and sad news. The death of George Floyd was unjust. The clips of the incident and pictures have been shared all over the internet and it’s heartbreaking. Systemic racism in the US hasn’t left. Stop with this idea of a post-racial society. It’s false. This administration has silenced voices, spewed hatred, and is not in favor of BIPOC. 45’s tweets are an example of that. We must stand with our Black brothers and sisters. RIP to George Floyd and to those we have lost to senseless acts of racial violence. We must be better. In solidarity. 🖤 #blacklivesmatter

My anxiety has been something this week. I’ve been uncomfortable because of the uncertainty in the world and in my own personal life. I’m trying to be hopeful, but it’s hard. Blogging has helped me release some tension, yet it remains even when I log off.

Music has helped me during my time off. The uke is healing. I almost have Somewhere Over The Rainbow down. Hurrah! ❤️

That’s all I wanted to say tonight. I hope you’re all staying safe. Take care and enjoy the weekend!

Good night.
