Day 309.

TGIF!!! I’m so happy for the long weekend. I’ve got a list of things to take care of and I intend to complete all tasks.

  • Days off are thee best!! 🙂
  • I had my video visit with my pulmonologist in the morning. Things are stable. I’ve been prescribed an inhaler. Hopefully it helps me out.
  • I spent most of the day waiting to take care of errands. I drove! I was with my aunt and sister. I’m most comfortable with others in the car. I’m proud of myself for going back out there. I do need to work on parking. Practice makes progress!!
  • Dropped off paperwork at the DMV. Afterwards we went to Japantown. I didn’t go inside any stores. I sat outside at the Peace Plaza. It was nice to hear familiar sounds. I really miss the pre-COVID days.
  • Lunch was good. I had a bowl from Nijiya. Happy we have Japanese snacks at home again!
  • I took a nap afterwards. I was pretty tired.
  • Now I’m watching the news. Watched a bit of Wedding Crashers. I’m hoping to watch more movies this weekend.
  • Animal Crossing update: I took care of maintenance. Hoping to sell things that I don’t need. Must organize too.

Well, I hope y’all had a nice one. Enjoy the weekend! Stay safe. 😷

Good night.

Day 301.

It’s been an overwhelming day. I just want everything I need to do to be done already. Ahhh! I’ve been way too anxious. 😭

  • Had to resolve some logistical things again. I hate feeling frustrated. From my understanding, I think all is okay.
  • I’ve been ordering takeout too much. It’s good, but I need to save money!!
  • We finally got to watch Muriel’s Wedding altogether. It’s funny every single time! 🤣 I love it.
  • Animal Crossing update: Not much happened on my island. I did the usual rounds.
  • I’ve felt more tired as of late. Doing my best to take care of myself.
  • My driving lesson for next week has been canceled. That means I must practice on my own. I’m feeling confident! 💗
  • Dating during the pandemic is a nightmare. I’ve decided to just step away. Two profiles are active, but I don’t really put forth much effort. Meh.
  • My break is winding down. I just hope I can return in time! PLS. That’s where most of my anxiety is right now.

Take care and be safe! 😷

Good night.

Day 299.

Happy Tuesday! How was your day?

  • Watched more Gossip Girl! The first season is amazing. I’m going to stick with it and try to finish all the seasons.
  • I didn’t sleep very well or right away because I was anxious for my driving lesson. I haven’t driven since last month.
  • Thankfully, my driving instructor understood and my lesson went well. Still some things to improve on, but I hope I can practice even more. Maybe this weekend? One of my goals is to drive to Japantown. 🙂
  • I finished all of my work trainings! Yay!!! Just need to take care of my COVID test and I’ll be set to return to work next week.
  • Spent time with the dogs. 💕
  • Still thinking of when we can all fly and travel again.
  • Highlight of my day: Followed up with my medical team. I love catching up with everyone from clinic! Thankful for their care and guidance. 💜
  • Savoring my last few days of break. It came and went! 😢
  • Lastly, Happy Birthday to you, Lolo (grandpa)! We never got the chance to meet and get to know you here in the States. Whenever you are – I hope you’re happy and having a grand time! RIP 💗

That was my Tuesday. 😁 Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 271.

It’s Tuesday!! It was a busy one for me, but all went well. I had my driving lesson before work and then I left early to pick up my new night guard. The fit was perfect! No need to adjust or shave down.

Back to my driving lesson – I still have some things to work on, but I’m making progress! I’m definitely regaining my confidence. I know I’m a safe driver. Hoping to schedule another lesson in January. And then maybe I’ll be good to go on my own in February!! 😁

I bought some greeting cards and snacks at Walgreens. I’m planning to mail out cards this weekend! I just need my holiday stamps. I bought some rubber stamps to add some pizzazz to my handwritten notes and cards.

Gotta take care of scheduling an appointment tomorrow. Thankfully I was able to order my meds first thing this morning. Should arrive on Friday.

Animal Crossing update: Celeste paid Mango a visit! Still no sign of snow. And I’m waiting for the holiday DIYs. Come on!!!

Well, this is good night. Take care!

Day 270.

Happy Monday! My day went well. Dinner was delicious! Korean food is some of the best. 💕

Watched the Niners on MNF. We didn’t win, but we still aren’t eliminated from playoff contention. We’ve got a chance!! Go Niners!!! ❤️💛

Animal Crossing update: Chill day on Mango Island. I’m still waiting for the snow. Where is it?! ❄️

I’m ready for my driving lesson tomorrow. As long as I improve, then I’m totally okay with it! Progress.

It’s been a pretty heavy day so I’ll keep this short.

Good night and take care!

Day 262.

Happy Sunday! My holiday break is officially over. Tears! But that’s okay. There’s so much to look forward to in the next few weeks. I love Christmas! It’s an exciting time despite a tough year.

I finally got to practice driving! I was tired when I woke up, but I decided to do it. If I don’t practice, I’ll never gain confidence. It went well! I even practiced some parallel parking. Woo!! I’ll improve. I know I can. 🙂

My treat for the day was ordering my favorite dessert! It’s always delicious. I really love hojicha. 🧡 I also got to try Fatburger. I watched the Niners game in its entirety today. Great team win! We needed it. Glad to have Mostert, Samuel, and Sherman back!!! ❤️💛

Animal Crossing update: I got my turnips! Woo. And my friend Amy visited my island. Everything is a WIP. Like I said – I’m revamping for all the holiday stuff. Can’t wait!!

I took a much needed nap after my very eventful day. I plan on studying again this week. I’ve been so focused on work that I haven’t focused on my online class. I hope to complete my module this week.

Lastly, it’s a scary time in the SF Bay Area. California as a whole. Please continue doing your part during the pandemic! It’s important to keep your distance. Be safe!!! 😷

Take care and good night!

Day 261.

Happy Saturday! I took advantage of another day of sleeping in. Glorious!! Those are the best kind of days. Cooking for the last few days has wiped me out.

We decided to order in for lunch. We ordered Mexican. Huevos rancheros ftw!! Afterwards, I hung out for a bit and then decided to take a nap. Much needed.

SF is back in the purple tier. Cases are surging! It’s terrifying. 😱😔 I’m returning to work on Monday, but I’ll be well prepared. We’re not out of this pandemic. It’s still very much here. Don’t be complacent!! Please continue doing your part.

I’ve been browsing Black Friday specials and looked at Small Business Saturday deals. Didn’t buy anything. I’ve done my share of supporting small businesses this year! I do need holiday cards and some new rubber stamps. I know where to go!

Animal Crossing update: It was a typical Saturday. I’m still cleaning up the messy parts of my island.

Doing a load of laundry. So very important! I’m going to do a bit of reading too. Might play ACNH again.

I plan to drive for a bit tomorrow morning. I need the practice! Yup.

Well, that was my Saturday. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 252.

Happy Thursday! I had a better day at work. I followed through with everything. One more day and it’s holiday break!! 😄

I had my 2nd driving lesson with Eugenia. I must practice more often. I’m still quite anxious behind the wheel, but it’ll take time to regain my confidence. I’ll get it back! I must remember to share the road. 😬😂

Klay is officially out for the new NBA season. 😭💔 We’ve been waiting for a healthy Warriors team! Still supporting them no matter what. Get well soon, Klay! 💙💛

Gotta head to the lab in the morning. So many extra steps as a chronic condition patient. It must be done. I can’t take shortcuts.

Animal Crossing update: The new update has been installed! My island is doing okay. Will revamp some more this weekend.

Lastly, Happy Birthday to Dad! Love you. ❤️ Today is also Coco’s Rainbow Bridge crossing. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years. 😭 Miss you, girl!!!

Well this is good night. Take care!

Day 243.

Happy Tuesday! 🙂 I had a very adventurous day. First off, I didn’t sleep very well since I had milk tea with boba pretty late yesterday. I was tossing and turning. Secondly, I was nervous, anxious, and excited for my driving lesson! It’s been years since I was behind the wheel. Slowly regaining my confidence back. My featured image is of me before my lesson. 🤓

My instructor picked me up before 10:15am. She drives a 2020 Rav4 Hybrid. So cool! The car was comfy. We went all over the city: St. Francis Wood, Sunset, Great Highway, and the Presidio! That was my favorite part. I saw the Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day. It was beautiful! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to snap any pics. I have the memories. My lesson went well! There are a few things I need to work on and it’s important to practice. I plan on committing time on Sundays to drive for a bit. I don’t want to avoid driving anymore. I’ll be alright! I know I can do it. 🥰

Pandemic update in SF: indoor dining is being halted starting Friday. Cases are going up all over the nation. It’s increasing in California and the city too. Please continue to wear a mask, social distance, and wash your hands. 2020 has been a trying year and we’re all dealing with pandemic fatigue. Do your part to keep others safe! 😷

Work went well. It was a short day! I started to feel the fatigue after work. Once I got home I ate a bit and then I decided to take a nap. Much needed! But before that I played some ACNH. My new villager is Bob! Pretty cool since he’s an OG.

I’m in the middle of updating my iPhone. I’m typing this up on my laptop. I’m listening to The Aces again. Brought up some memories from the summer, but whatever. I’ll be okay!

I’ve gotta take care of some things tomorrow before work. Taking it a day at a time. The more I think about something I get stuck in this cycle of negative thoughts. Just breathe!

I plan to study this week too. Well, that’s all I got! I hope you all had a nice day. Take care!

Good night.

Day 219.

Happy Saturday! 💜

Yesterday wore me out. My entire body was sore. I’m officially back at work! I fell asleep almost instantaneously. Got about 10 hours. I did nap in the middle of the day. Much needed.

It was another warm day in the city. I spent it indoors. We ordered boba milk tea and slush to keep cool. 🥵

The NLCS is tied up. I hope the Braves show up tomorrow. Yeesh. The Rays won tonight! I’m excited for them. Congrats!!!

Let me express my love for Sanrio again. They’re the best! 💗

I was proactive yesterday and today to find a driving instructor. I’m proud to report that I’ve signed up for two lessons in November. I’m looking forward to conquering my fear and anxiety behind the wheel. Woo! I want my independence. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the driving school I found.

Animal Crossing update: I’m trying to clean up my flowers. Not sure what to do with them. Lol. I gave up halfway. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Planning to watch a movie tonight. Not sure what.

Hope y’all had a nice Saturday! Take care.

Good night.
