Day 201.

I’m blogging from my laptop. This is super different! I’ll get used to it.

Happy Tuesday! I got a decent night’s sleep. I ended up watching That Thing You Do! before bed. It’s been a while since I’ve seen it. I always dig the music. And GUY! ❤

I got to do a load of laundry. I love the smell of clean clothes. All my sweats needed to be washed. It’s still my WFH attire. LOL!

I left the house for a bit. Ran a few errands at our local produce. We needed some ingredients for dinner. It was nice to get a walk in since I usually exercise at home. The weather is getting colder.

Animal Crossing update: Redd stopped by. I bought another piece of art! My collection at the museum is growing. The new update was also installed. I’m super excited about all the pumpkin items. YAY!!!

I watched some postseason baseball too. I miss the Giants. Sighhh.

Lastly, I got to study for a little bit today. Planning to get more done tomorrow after my dentist appointment. I hope I won’t be in too much discomfort. I also hope the appointment is short. I loathe cleanings. Absolutely necessary, but it hurts sometimes. I’ve got sensitive gums. 😦

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

Good night.

Day 200.

Case of the Mondays. I stayed up watching the Chadwick Boseman special on Disney+. And then I watched Another Cinderella Story. I love Selena Gomez! And then this afternoon my sister and I watched Selena. We love that movie so much. ❤️

I’ve been pretty sluggish today. I just finished my workout! 💪🏼 Smashing my goals. I’m still sad, but I’m slowly moving on. It’s only been a week.

Animal Crossing update: Nothing too eventful on my island. I’m waiting for the Halloween update!! 🎃

So much baseball and basketball this week. I’m excited! I love sports. It’s also a busy week for me. Dental appointment on Wednesday, call with my boss on Thursday, and my flu shot on Friday. Woo!

Thinking of all the folx up North. Fires are raging again here in Northern California. Stay safe!! 💗

Planning to drive this week. I must practice. That’s the only way I’ll get better. I have some anxiety, but I’ll be okay. I know I can do this!

It was a very warm day in the city – 90 degrees! Should be cooler tomorrow. We bought Cafe Maiko again. I can’t resist the matcha swirl sundae with boba. 😋

Flowers by DJ Spoony feat. Sugababes is really good. The original is by Sweet Female Attitude. 🇬🇧 artists are amazing!!

That was my Monday. Hoping to do more tomorrow. Take care!

Good night.

Day 198.

Happy Saturday! It’s been a sad day. I found out this morning that our uncle passed away suddenly. 😭💔 He was so kind. RIP Tito Rino. 🤍

A death always puts everything into perspective. It’s a wake up call! I need to do more with my time. I need to stop wasting the day. This year has been super tough for everyone, but I’d like to believe there’s a silver lining after all of this. There has to be.

I played my uke and dedicated Somewhere Over the Rainbow to my uncle. Fly high!! 🌈

The Giants are in control of their destiny. They were handed a loss. Not sure what tomorrow will bring. It’s win or go home. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: The final Bug-Off event of the year happened today. I did pretty well for myself. I redeemed my points for a spider plate door decor. Perfect for the fall and Halloween!!

I finally got a workout in. This week has been heavy, but I’m slowly getting back on the horse. Work will be resuming shortly. There’s a lot to do before then. Just breathe.

We ordered Hahn’s Hibachi for lunch. Brings back so many memories! I got my usual, bbq chicken with rice. I’ll finish the last of it tomorrow.

Lastly, I wanna say Happy Birthday to my cousin, Ryan! 🥳🥰🎂

Well, I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 197.

TGIF! It’s been a ride for me this week. I think I’m slowly returning to myself. Currently listening to A*Teens – Firefly. ❤️

I’ve gotta take care of all of this work stuff. I might be back in two weeks! It’s pretty wild. 😱 I’m ready to get back to it. It’ll be very different, but I need routine in my life. I’m ready to drive!!

Had Shake Shack for lunch. It was delicious! Didn’t get my usual. I kinda wish I did. Cheese fries always make me happy. 🙂

I’ve skipped out on exercising for the last few days. Time to buckle down and get back to doing it! I miss it honestly.

The Giants have control of their destiny. We won 1/2 today. Not a fan of Coonrod. Ughhh….our bullpen hasn’t been super reliable either. I don’t know how to feel about the postseason. We either get in or we don’t. 2 games remaining. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: bought a green Victorian dress. Mom helped me pick it out. Paid some of my new loan off. Sold my turnips. It was a good day!

I’m hungry. I napped for a bit. I think we have cookies here. Must eat dinner first.

Enjoy the weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 195.

Still feeling crappy, but I’m doing my best. 💜💪🏼💜 Angry about the Breonna Taylor news. Absolutely disgusting. Black Lives Matter! 🖤

I slept in. I stayed up watching The Outsiders before bed. Ralph Macchio! My childhood crush. 🥰 Still love him to this day. Might look into watching Cobra Kai.

Indian food for lunch! I love the garlic naan and chicken tikka masala. I ordered a mango lassi too. Everything was delicious!!

Animal Crossing update: I forgot I expanded my house. Got a new loan to pay off, but I now have a room upstairs! Thinking of making that room my bedroom. We’ll see.

Renewed my domain and WP plan. Yay! More blog entries to come.

Watched Remember the Titans this afternoon. One of my favorite Disney movies. Denzel is so good!!! The cast is great and so is the music. ❤️

Giants win! Keeping my fingers crossed for the last few games. We’ll see how it turns out. Go Giants!! 🖤🧡

I caught up with a good friend via text. She’s been encouraging and helping me through my heartache. The feeling still sucks. 😢

Everything is still a waiting game for work. Hopefully we go back in two weeks. I’m anxious because I need to practice driving before then. Eep! I can do this though. I know I can.

That’s my Wednesday. I hope to be more productive tomorrow. I won’t exercise tonight. Maybe tomorrow? Or Friday?

Good night.

Day 191.

I’m in a weird state yet again. I’ve been feeling really tired too. I’m also overthinking. Sigh. 😞 My emotions and feelings are everywhere.

I plan on exercising to get rid of the negativity and anxiety.

I helped with dinner which is nice. I took a nap before helping. I think I need another nap.

Animal Crossing update: Caroline has officially moved out. Truffles will be settling in tomorrow. I’m always open to new villagers, but I get attached to the old ones.

Watched the Celtics and Heat play. Very good game. It’s going to be a series. Might even go 7?

The Giants lost again in Oakland. Sighhh. Postseason or not, they’ve played very well considering how unique 2020 has been.

Didn’t take any pictures so this entry is all text.

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

Good night.

Day 189.

Happy Thursday! 🥰 It’s almost the weekend. It’s been okay for me. Got my workout done – go me!

Progress is being made at work. I might be back in two weeks. Part of me is anxious, but the other part of me wants to get back to my old routine. It’s going to be different, but I’m ready. I must be extra careful as my doctors have advised. Productive convo with the boss. He’s always reassuring.

Giants win! They take the series as the visiting team at home versus Seattle. Just a few more games left and then the postseason. We’ll see what happens. 🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: Redd was in town. Got a new piece of art to add to my museum. Exciting! Loan is almost paid off. Like seriously! 😄

I’ve got my eye appointments tomorrow morning. I hope it goes well. I haven’t been super diligent with my drops. Eep!

I was pretty productive today. I washed dishes. Hurrah! I’m hoping to do more tomorrow. Clean and study!! That’s the plan.

Lastly, I wish things were different. I miss going out with friends, seeing family, and doing my own thing. Six months into this and it’s been up and down. There are so many emotions and feelings to sort through. 😞😫😭 But I’m doing my best. It’s been nice to chat with someone new – regardless of if it’s something more or not. Maybe we’re both interested? I don’t know. But I feel like 🥴 every time. 😂

I’m hoping to sleep soon. It’s an early day for me. Must practice driving too. Take care!

Good night.

Day 188.

Happy Wednesday! We made it to the middle of the week. 😎

I was feeling quite tired when I woke up, so I took a nap. It turned into 2 more hours of sleep. I felt pretty refreshed. Win!

Animal Crossing update: Things are the same on the island. I’ve saved enough to pay off my loan, but I’m waiting until I get it down to $100k. 🙂

Rare beauty stuff arrived today! I’m digging the lip soufflé and the highlighter. I like my makeup pretty natural and Selena’s line does the job. She’s also a Lupus Warrior! I always support the community. 💜💪🏼💜

I studied today. Made some progress with my class. Planning to read a bit more tonight before bed. I’m pretty productive at night. I’ve always been a night owl!

The Giants were the visiting team tonight. Pretty interesting. Lol. We got the W! 🖤🧡 The win was for the 49ers. ❤️💛 Kruk and Kuip mentioned them during the broadcast. 🥰

My workout was brutal, but I got it done. I wasn’t feeling too motivated. Proud of myself.

That was my Wednesday. Kinda feeling anxious for my call with the boss tomorrow. I’m aware that work will be different. I just need to be overly cautious about my surroundings and the people I interact with. I might be driving to work too. That’s a change! Fingers crossed that all goes well.

We’re still in the first wave. The things I read on social media just upsets me. There’s so much ignorance and selfishness. Absolutely frustrating! So many complaints to go back to “normal”, yet no one wants to listen to science and wear a mask! 😒😞😷 Please do your part. Rant over.

Good night.

Day 187.

Not a very Happy Tuesday for me. I dealt with a mosquito flying around in my room before bed. It was the most annoying thing ever! So I tried to fall asleep with my AirPods in my ears. It made me so anxious. I hope I can sleep better tonight.

I decided to clean the bathroom and the kitchen. Clean floors are happy floors! 🙂 I treated myself to a cup of ice cream afterwards. Hurrah!

Animal Crossing update: I’m ready to take money out of my savings account to pay for the rest of my loan. I need more home storage! Labelle stopped by today. The villager I want gone is still on my island. It’s getting old. Lol. I would like a new villager.

I missed out on some NBA games today since I took a nap after cleaning. The Nuggets advance after defeating the Clippers. 😱 The Heat beat the Celtics in Game 1 of the ECF.

The Giants are returning to SF to play the Mariners due to the terrible AQI in the PNW. Seattle will be the home team. This shall be interesting. I believe we have 12 games remaining. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Speaking of AQI, the skies were finally blue today. That may change leading up to the weekend, but I plan to take advantage of it until then. I’ve got a bunch of doctor’s appointments lined up for this week and into next.

I’ve gotta exercise and shower. Hoping to sleep better tonight as I mentioned earlier.

Text convos are something. Haven’t really checked my phone because of my anxiety. 🙃 And work stuff too. Eep.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 186.

Happy Monday! I had a terrible case of insomnia. I eventually fell asleep at 6am. 😬 I was very tired once I woke up. I napped for a bit mid-day.

Had a Whopper for lunch. Saving my Hershey pie for tomorrow.

Good news: I passed my class assignment! I can now proceed with the test and move on to the next module. Exciting!! My goal is to get my certification before the year ends. 2020 has been a trying year, but this is a silver lining for me. ❤️

I was overthinking a text. It was fine. 😂 I just need to breathe.

Just finished my exercise and finished my smoothie. I’m feeling good and accomplished. It takes 21 days to build a habit. I’m doing it!!!!

My Filipina art prints arrived today. So beautiful! 🇵🇭✨ I’m going to put mine up in a bit.

I didn’t take a picture today. I wasn’t feeling super motivated or creative. I’ll have a pic up for tomorrow’s entry.

Doing my best to stay positive. But if I’m feeling sad and overwhelmed, I let myself feel that too. I’ve always been emotional and sensitive even before the pandemic. I’m riding the wave. 🌊 Holistic health is so important during these times.

Btw our dear 🐻 had a vet visit. She gained a bit of weight. She’s gotta exercise and maintain a healthy diet. We’ll do a liver panel in a month or two.

Animal Crossing update: My loan. Same old story! I need to bury some more money. Island is still a mess.

That was my day. I’m ready to take it easy the rest of the night. Take care!

Good night.
