Day 452.

The app is wonky right now. I can’t even insert an image. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I might have to start blogging on my laptop again.

It was a very windy day! Whoa. 🌬

Trying to get my mind right and focus on my class. I’m going to tackle my assignment tomorrow and move onto the next module.

Made dinner with the sister! We made pasta with vodka sauce and pancetta. Warmed up Levain cookies for dessert. 😋 YUM!!!

Played a decent amount of ACNH. I’m on the hunt for Stitches. I hope I find him tomorrow!

I’m tired so I’m planning to sleep a little early tonight.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.


Day 260.

TGIF!!! Where did the week go?! I can’t believe my break is almost over. I’ll enjoy the weekend. A day at a time is my mentality right now.

I got to sleep in. It was nice! I decided to browse some Black Friday sales while I was in bed. I only bought a few things. I’m being really reasonable!

Animal Crossing update: Mango is chill. I miss Turkey Day already. Must get ready for Christmas! I’m really excited. I’ve said it before.

Washed the dishes and stuff we used yesterday. I really don’t like having things sit in the sink. I like everything clean. Took me 30-45 minutes. After that I seasoned the iron skillet for an hour. I’m new to it! I only seasoned it once. It’s recommended you do it 2-3 times. Maybe next time. Love the skillet! We finally cooked the filet mignon pieces. It was good. So many leftovers too!

We just watched Dateline. The stories are always very interesting!

Lastly, I’m remembering Harvey Milk and George Moscone tonight. It’s been 42 years since their passing. RIP. ❤️

Enjoy the weekend! Take care and be safe.

Good night.


Day 259.

Happy Turkey Day! 🦃🧡 It was a different kind of celebration, but I’m so thankful for everything. 2020’s been a trying year, but I made the most of it. I’m planning to finish strong! I’m blessed with family, friends, shelter, food, and so much more. It really is all about the little things. Perspective. I hope everyone had a nice holiday!! I also wanted to acknowledge the Ohlone tribe – the Indigenous people of the SF Bay Area. ❤️

The sister and I went ham in the kitchen. We made oven baked mac & cheese, heated up the Omaha Steaks thanksgiving package, finally made sweet potatoes with marshmallows, and so much dessert! I’m stuffed. We’ll be cooking the steak tomorrow. Didn’t get a chance to tackle it today. Leftovers too!

Animal Crossing update: Turkey Day with Franklin was a lot of fun! I got all the items and the DIY recipes. It took a while, but my villagers pulled through with their trades. I fished for a while. 😂 Good times. Back to a normal day tomorrow. 🍁

I’ve been listening to so much Little Mix and Ari too. I ordered the signed Stuck With U CD a few months ago. Turns out the signatures are auto penned. 😦 Found out on Twitter. Haven’t received mine yet, but I know people aren’t happy. Yeesh!

Might look into some Black Friday sales, but I’m pretty picky when it comes to certain items. We’ll see.

I’m pretty tired. But I’m planning to watch the last epi of The Queen’s Gambit before I sleep tonight. Woo!

Lastly, our cousin gave birth to her son today! We’re aunties again. 💗 So exciting! I hope we can see everyone soon…maybe 2022?!

This is good night. Take care!


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.
