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 139.

Happy Wednesday! It’s almost the weekend. Can’t wait. I’m sad to see July go, but I’m ready for August. Lots of revamping. Yay!!!

I was quite tired today. My sleep has been up and down. I’m trying to normalize it. SIP has been tough to navigate. I woke up from my nap about 45 minutes ago. Days are repetitive so I do my best to change it up. I really want to start doing yoga again. I was so consistent back in June. 😞 I’m being patient with myself.

The highlight of my day was cooking with my sisters. I contributed my peeling potatoes and cooking rice. We made adobo! So good. I love Filipino food. 😋

Animal Crossing update: Pascal gave me the DIY recipe for the mermaid dresser. I’m getting close to the entire collection. And the new update for fireworks, dream sequence, and so much more is being released tomorrow! Some folks have already had it for a few hours. I’ll just wait until midnight.

I’m dealing with some anxiety, but I know I’ll work through it. Discomfort is real, but it’s how we grow. Our comfort zones are cool, but it’s too safe. Although 2020 has been something, it’s good to challenge ourselves! I’m still brainstorming about what online class I want to offer in the Fall. I’ll get there.

I also renewed my Flickr account. It hasn’t been active since January? So confusing. Glad it’s reactivated. I back up my pictures on there.

Giants win! 🖤🧡 It was a walk off. Thanks Yaz!! Our offense is showing up. It’s nice to see. I watched for a few innings and then I took my nap. Lol.

That was my day. Hope yours went well. Take care!

Good night.

Day 82.

My yoga session yesterday took me out today. My upper body is very sore. I wanted to close my rings tonight on my watch, but we shall see. It hurts to move. I need 22 more minutes of exercise.

It was a warm day in SF. It hit 81 in the neighborhood. The cool down starts on Thursday.

I’m so sleepy right now. I would nap, but it’s so close to bedtime. It’s hard to keep my eyes open. Ahh!

Practiced my uke after a few episodes of Unsolved Mysteries. I cleaned a bit today too. Most of it was recycling and shredding old papers.

I played some Animal Crossing too. I’m hoping one of my villagers moves out. Might be a while. I haven’t caught a shark yet. Maybe tomorrow! All the new bugs on the island are really cool.

Well, that was my day. Hope your Tuesday was great.

Good night.

Day 55.

Happy 89th Birthday, Willie Mays! 🖤🧡 Birthday greetings to our Lola Onen too. We miss you. ❤️

I had a restful night’s sleep! It’s been so long since I could say that. I woke up at about 9am. And then I played Animal Crossing. 😊 Every morning is a little surprise when I start up the game. I love it!

I spent most of the day with the dogs and taking care of some errands at home. I measured a jacket that might be sold. Fingers crossed. I was also preparing myself for a study. I wanted to nap before it, but I did it afterwards instead. I think it went well.

I fell asleep for a few hours and I woke up at 9pm. Overall it was a good day. I had the rest of the taco meat from Taco Bell. Made two tacos, one soft and the other crunchy. I also had carrots, Devon custard, and strawberries. I think today was a fairly healthy day. I did have a handful of candy and that’s alright. 😎

Practiced my uke. Spent 20-30 minutes on it. I’ve learned a bit of I’m Yours. The uke challenge concludes this week, but I’ll continue to learn more chords and songs. I’ve learned so much since day 1! I’m really proud of myself. 💜

Now we’re going to watch some episodes of The Simpsons. But first, some more Animal Crossing. I’m bummed my museum is under renovation, but it’ll be back tomorrow. I wanted to donate some fossils but it’ll be done later.

Hope you all had a pleasant Wednesday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 49.

I didn’t get a restful night’s sleep. Dealt with terrible insomnia. I finally fell asleep at 8am. I slept in until 2pm.

I played some Animal Crossing. So much progress today! I love it. 🙂 I’m done playing for the night. Give my eyes some rest.

Got some cleaning done. I trashed old receipts and recycled papers + boxes. Planning to tackle my closet this weekend. I need to part with old clothes.

We had pizza for dinner. We didn’t want to cook tonight.

Mellow Thursday. I’m hoping to sleep early tonight.

Good night!

Bruised and sore.

Here’s my update. I went through a lot this past weekend. It was actually terrifying.

We adopted a dog to add to the family on Saturday, 6/23. Her name is Sally. She’s a chihuahua, five years old, and was born with one eye. The other eye didn’t develop. 😦 She’s originally from the Central Valley. She’s very sweet, but still adjusting to her new environment. Anyway, after adopting her, we decided to go to Petco to buy a few things for her – a kennel, food dish & water bowl, a bed, and a toy. We were looking forward to getting home, but we never got there.

On our way home, my brother and I were involved in a car accident. We were 10 minutes away from home. We were at 23rd Street and South Van Ness. It was our light to go. As my brother attempted to make a left, this car is speeding from the left side and hits us. He pressed on the brakes as much as he could have. Our car is a tank, but a lot of the damage was in the front. I saw the bumper fly off. It was the first automobile accident that I’ve been involved in ever. It was really scary! And having the dogs there was even scarier, but they’re safe. I on the other hand had to be transported to the ER due to my underlying health conditions and I was bruised up pretty badly. I’ve got bruises on my knees, my chest, and overall soreness everywhere. I’m still dealing with it. It sucks! :/

X-Rays were ordered for my knee. Thankfully there was no fracture. I was able to go home after a few hours.

Our Subaru saved us just like in their commercials and I am eternally grateful. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to be attentive behind the wheel. Please stay away from all distractions, especially your phones. It can wait!!! I don’t drive enough in the city, but it’s always the other drivers. You can be the safest driver, but someone else can mess that up for you.

I’m recovering now and should be healed up for Orlando. I’m very excited! 🙂

Thank you so much to my cousin, Adrian for getting to the scene, the witnesses, and first responders.

Hope you all had a great weekend. Here’s to an awesome week!!
