Happy Pride! 🏳️‍🌈💗

Wishing all of my dear family and friends a Happy Pride! You are loved always. Blessed to have y’all in my life and to stand proudly as an ally.

It’s been a weird work week. Trying to keep up before I’m off in a few days. 😮‍💨

I’m pretty tired. And unfortunately, Covid is in our household atm. It’s so inconvenient, but we gotta keep our distance!!! Still masking, washing my hands, and keeping away from crowds. But I can’t dodge crowds all the time. Just pls stay away!!!

Hoping to sleep soon. Wishing y’all a great week! 💜

Good night.

It’s brutal out here.

I decided to venture out and stop by the sour tour bus experience in front of Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Friday! 💜 I didn’t have a ticket to Olivia Rodrigo’s show, but I wanted to make a day of it. There were a lot of lines and waiting, but I got everything I wanted! Got my chance at the photo booth and bought a tour tee + socks.

Some things were already sold out like hoodies, sweatpants, and jean jackets. There were so many people! Kind of overwhelming, but I survived. The merch line wrapped around the corner. There was another barricade for those attending the show. People started showing up before 8am. Wristbands for that line were distributed on Thursday.

The weather was decent. It was sunny, but then it got gloomy & cold fast. Thankfully I wore enough layers!!!

I wish I took more selfies, but that’s okay. My sisters couldn’t make it out. Next time! Hopefully her next concert will be at an arena. Chase Center would be cool!

I ended up taking Muni to get home. I haven’t been on a train since March 2020. Ultimate throwback!!! I felt pretty safe. I won’t ride it often, but it’s an option for me. Saves money for sure!!

Olivia’s music is great! Can’t wait for her new stuff. The sour tour continues in Europe.✨

Alright time to sleep. Good night!

Update.

Hello! It’s been a few weeks and I come with an update.

I’ve attended a few events: Buster Posey Day at the yard, my first concert since 2019, and celebrated Mother’s Day with the fam. I also just signed papers to be a barista/cashier again! I hope it goes well.🤞

I had my interview for the mochi film I decided to help with and l was a mess. I probably should’ve prepared more beforehand and I was nervous! But Kristine was very patient with me. I hope I didn’t embarrass myself. 😬 I overthink a lot. Wahhh!

I need to finish my cert for my TEFL. I’ve put it off for so long. I’m almost there! I need to complete it before the end of June. I’m a little stressed since I start training for my new gig next week. Also nervous for that.

I saw Paul McCartney on Sunday! It was amazing. I’ve seen both living Beatles. George was my favorite. RIP to him and John. Truly missed! 🤍

Getting sleepy. My nap threw me off. And omg the Philippine election. Don’t even get me started! It’s upsetting to me as a Filipino American. I want real leadership to steer the country in the right direction. I want progress! I wasn’t born there, but I’m still very connected to the birthplace of my parents and ancestors. LABAN 🇵🇭💗

There’s a lot to do and I’m feeling overwhelmed sometimes. Taking it a day at a time! Wishing you all well. Until next time.

A busy 🐝!

Hello! It’s been a while. Just wanted to type up an update. 🙂 I hope everyone is doing well! The NBA playoffs have started, baseball is back (Go Giants! 🖤🧡), and spring is here!!! ☀️ Love it.

I attended the NCCBF! 🌸 Both weekends. First weekend was to visit our cousin and his partner. She’s running her own small biz! Good times. The second weekend we lined up early for teriburgers! Delicious. Wish we bought more. 😋 Also got to buy Japanese snacks, mochi, and some other goodies. Japantown is one of my fave spots in the city!

A few days ago – we returned to Davis. It was for Dr. Fujimoto’s memorial. So many beautiful stories and memories were shared. I miss college! I was inspired again just being back. I want to do more!!! Aggies 🐴💙💛 We bought all of our favorite food, caught up with familiar faces, and took some nice pics on campus. We bought some new UCD swag to wear and rep. We missed Picnic Day by 2 days! I ended up buying this year’s tee.

I’m in the middle of job hunting again. I’d like to have a summer job if I can find one. Looking for a stable position that also works with my own schedule + energy levels. Being a lupus patient can be a lot, but it’s important to listen to your body! Rest is essential. In my case, I always nap. 💜 Lupus Awareness Month is coming up. I love sharing facts and information!!

I’m playing a lot of Pocket Camp! It’s fun. Too many Animal Crossing games to choose from.

Lots of books on my reading list! I also have tv shows and movies I’ve been meaning to watch. Balance is so important right now! I’m also trying to exercise more. Time management. 😮‍💨

Wishing you all a great week! 💗

Good night.

So much deliciousness.

The fam and I have been exploring some new spots for SF eats. 😋 We found a new pizza place! It’s called Joyride and it’s amazing. I loved the pepperoni and the Bianca. The fig jam!! 🤩

I will most definitely be back. 😌 Pizza rules!!!

Spring Training is in full swing! So excited because baseball back. I’m also watching March Madness. So many upsets. Wild! There will be 2 games played at Chase Center. I wanted to go, but unfortunately it’s too expensive. 😞

It’s a new week and Pisces season is officially over. 😭 Here’s to next year!

I’m still listening to a lot of *NSync and my fave pop music from the nineties. I miss it! I’ve been very nostalgic.

Wishing you all a great week! Take care. 😷🧡

Good night.

DST is here!

I’m adjusting to the time change. I think I’ll be fine after a week. Feeling a little anxious right now, so I’m having trouble sleeping.

I hope it’ll be a great week for everyone!! There’s a lot going on in the sports world, so I’ve got my eyes on Twitter 24/7. Mainly my teams: Giants, Niners, and Warriors. Hoping the Giants sign a big bat. I think this is the week we say farewell to Jimmy G. I really wish we won with him at QB. 😭 Dray, Klay, and Steph will be playing together again! It hasn’t happened since 2019. 😱 Time flies!!! My goodness.

Work will keep me busy for sure. Need to go on a shopping trip this week. I love food! I’m also exercising again. Walked yesterday and I’ll most likely do my resistance bands a few times a week. Woo! Holding myself accountable.

Covid. I’m still masking everywhere I go. I feel safer that way and I hope people will respect that. I also have chronic conditions and an immunocompromised family member. Back up! 😷 So many questions to ask my medical team. Travel is on there. If not this year, I’m hoping 2023 will be the year I’m back on a plane. I miss it!! ✈️

Still playing a lot of Animal Crossing New Leaf. 😊 Hoping turnip prices are better this week. Last week was atrocious.

Well, I’ll try to sleep soon. Wishing you all an amazing week! ❤️

Bye.

Happy February!

I’ll be blogging daily for the month. February holds a special place in my heart. Bday month! Yay 💜

I’m in a somber mood. One, the Jimmy G era is about to close in SF. I really wanted us/him to get #6 for us and it wasn’t in the cards. 😭💔 I know he’s handsome, but he’s such a classy dude. This year was heavy and he carried himself with grace. 3-5 to the NFC Championship Game! Incredible. I wish him all the best wherever he goes. I’ll be rooting for him always. Thanks for everything, Jimmy! You’ll be missed.

Two, our uncle is very sick. I’m trying to hold it together, but I’ve cried a few times. It’s difficult being separated from each other during this time. The pandemic robbed us of time to be together. I pray for his comfort and peace. I’m so grateful that we’ve been able to share memories together since 2012. That was a life changing year and it’s still felt to this day.

There are other things going on with me and I’m honestly taking it a day at a time. I haven’t been super motivated and I feel a bit hopeless at times with the job search. I yearn to go back a few years when I was really happy and on top of the world! Thankfully, I get to chat with my therapist next week so I hope it’s a good session.

I’m eating comfort food, but also trying to establish an exercise routine that’ll work for me. We finally made Filipino breakfast: rice, eggs, tomatoes, spam, and longanisa. 😋 This is why I gotta work out. Lol.

I look forward to the rest of this month! It’s only day 1. I’m going to make the most of it. 💗

I’m hoping to sleep soon. It’s been hard to fall and stay asleep. My thoughts have been racing.

Good night.

Some thoughts.

22 days into 2022 and I’m still feeling a bit blah. Year 3 of this pandemic and it’s exhausting! Shout out to all the healthcare workers. Thank you for all that you do.

Applying to remote jobs has been a drag. Staying hopeful, but lacking motivation. I’m so close to completing my certification for my TEFL, but I’ve put that on hold for now. I have until the summer, yet I’d like to complete it before my birthday next month.

This year is a fresh start! I’m excited for what maybe in store. I’m also emo since we haven’t been able to see family due to Omicron. I think it’s subsiding in the Bay Area. Great news! I’m yearning to travel, but that’s still on hold. I’m doing my best to take care of myself holistically. It’s tough, but baby steps.

I took a nap so I’m awake. It’s officially game day. Niners vs. Packers @ Lambeau Field! I’m nervous excited. Not sure if I’ll get much sleep tbh. 🙃 GO NINERS!!!! #FTTB

Wishing you all a great weekend! Stay safe and be well.

Good night.

Farewell to you, 2021!

As I reflect on this year, there’s a lot to take away. So many highs and lows. I’m very hopeful that 2022 will be amazing. That’s always my mindset at the beginning of the year! I try to be consistent, but life happens.

Very thankful to be vaccinated and boosted! It was a relief early on to finally see family and friends in person. I was so happy! Omicron is here and I continue to stay vigilant. I’m very mindful and considerate of others during the pandemic. It’s been exhausting, but I persist. I care about my family, friends, colleagues, and the community.

I’m hoping for pleasant surprises come 2022! Whatever that might be, I’m ready. I plan to get my first tattoo after our birthday. Still trying to figure out what I want. I also want to take care of myself holistically – mind, body, and soul.

I just did my makeup even though we’re staying in again this year. Totally fine with it! We cooked yummy food, ordered ice cream, and plenty of wine to go around. Can’t wait! I’m going to enjoy the night with a side of Animal Crossing New Horizons. 😊

So here’s to 2022! May it be filled with good times and memories. 🎉🥂❤️

Take care if you’re heading out. Stay safe and enjoy the night! For those staying in, may you have good company to enjoy the festivities.

See y’all in 2022!!! 🎇 Good night.

Christmas 2021!🎄

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate and Happy Holidays to all!

I’ve been recovering from all the cooking yesterday. We just baked holiday cupcakes. It was nice to spend time with family earlier today. I appreciate the time I get to spend with our Lola. 🥺🥰

I’m pretty tired, but being with family is worth it!!!

Hope everyone had a nice holiday. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!! ❤️

Good night.
