Day 447.

Happy Wednesday! The week is flying.

Highlight of the day: I drove! 🚙 It’s been a few weeks, but I’m proud of myself. I just need to be consistent. 😌 I had to get to the post office to pick up a package! Sanrio goodies. 💗

Two more days of work and the year is done. Like I said it’s bittersweet. 😢 It’s time to turn the page and look for something new. I can do this! It seems daunting, but it’s good to start fresh.

I passed my assignment!!! I need to study a bit tonight. I feel better today compared to yesterday. I’ve just been thinking about a lot. Time flies!

ACNH update: Gulliver is on my island! There are shooting stars, but I don’t see Celeste. Maybe I’ll look once more. I didn’t sell my turnips. Prices are still too low. Maybe tomorrow?!

Planning to organize and clean again this weekend! Sanrio rules. Still dreaming about Tokyo. Soon!!! Hopefully.

Japanese chicken katsu curry for dinner. Much needed.

Time to call it a night. Giants were off today. Four game series coming up versus the Cubs. Go Giants! 🖤🧡🖤🧡

Take care and good night.

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.

  • 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!

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.

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.

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!
