Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city.

Thank you, Petula Clark! Yesterday was a stroll down memory lane. Lots of errands and we ended up downtown. I was downtown a lot pre-Covid. I’m rarely in the area now. It’s different, but in a sense the same.

Blondie’s is back so we decided to buy pizza! We also went to Wetzel’s and KB tarts. 😋 Many eateries we used to go to are now gone such as Beard Papa’s, Loving Hut, and Häagen-Dazs. It was nice to be back! I think the soul of SF is returning. It’ll definitely take work, but it’s progress.

My bracket is officially done. Gonzaga let me down! 😩 But I had a feeling they wouldn’t do well. And I was right. So I finish 2nd this year. My women’s bracket is still going strong, so I might be able to pull out a win. It’s early, but there’s a chance!! Here’s hoping I do better in 2023.

Bridgerton is officially back! I’ll be watching an epi tonight. Yay!!!

Doing my best to take care of myself holistically. Happy to report that I’ve been walking more. It’s tiring, but absolutely necessary for my health. I’m also cleaning up my diet.

Opening Day is two weeks away!!! Can’t wait. I love baseball!! ⚾️

Well, time for Netflix. Woo!

Good night.


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.

Day 289.

Happy Saturday! I got to sleep in and it was glorious. 😌 Leftovers for brunch. Woo! I caught some of the Niners game. I’m happy that we won! 🙂

Before the game ended, I ran some errands with my sister. We were masked up and ready to go. It was nice to leave the house for a bit and take a walk. So many stores are closing because of the pandemic. 😭 Very sad news.

We had A&W for dinner. I ordered dessert from Matcha Cafe Maiko. I got to try the flavor of the month: strawberry! 🍓 So good.

I got to catch up with some high school friends. So nice to hear what everyone’s up to these days. I miss going out to dinner with friends. Sigh.

Animal Crossing update: Happy Birthday to Pashmina! I’ve been tidying up my island. I decided to move Goldie’s house. It’s her birthday tomorrow. Her house will now be near the beach. Yay!!!

That was my Saturday. I’m just taking it easy the rest of the night. Spotify will be on. Currently playing Little Mix. I’m still listening to Christmas music too. 🥸🎄

I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care and be safe!

Good night.
