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 260.

TGIF!!! Where did the week go?! I can’t believe my break is almost over. I’ll enjoy the weekend. A day at a time is my mentality right now.

I got to sleep in. It was nice! I decided to browse some Black Friday sales while I was in bed. I only bought a few things. I’m being really reasonable!

Animal Crossing update: Mango is chill. I miss Turkey Day already. Must get ready for Christmas! I’m really excited. I’ve said it before.

Washed the dishes and stuff we used yesterday. I really don’t like having things sit in the sink. I like everything clean. Took me 30-45 minutes. After that I seasoned the iron skillet for an hour. I’m new to it! I only seasoned it once. It’s recommended you do it 2-3 times. Maybe next time. Love the skillet! We finally cooked the filet mignon pieces. It was good. So many leftovers too!

We just watched Dateline. The stories are always very interesting!

Lastly, I’m remembering Harvey Milk and George Moscone tonight. It’s been 42 years since their passing. RIP. ❤️

Enjoy the weekend! Take care and be safe.

Good night.

Day 259.

Happy Turkey Day! 🦃🧡 It was a different kind of celebration, but I’m so thankful for everything. 2020’s been a trying year, but I made the most of it. I’m planning to finish strong! I’m blessed with family, friends, shelter, food, and so much more. It really is all about the little things. Perspective. I hope everyone had a nice holiday!! I also wanted to acknowledge the Ohlone tribe – the Indigenous people of the SF Bay Area. ❤️

The sister and I went ham in the kitchen. We made oven baked mac & cheese, heated up the Omaha Steaks thanksgiving package, finally made sweet potatoes with marshmallows, and so much dessert! I’m stuffed. We’ll be cooking the steak tomorrow. Didn’t get a chance to tackle it today. Leftovers too!

Animal Crossing update: Turkey Day with Franklin was a lot of fun! I got all the items and the DIY recipes. It took a while, but my villagers pulled through with their trades. I fished for a while. 😂 Good times. Back to a normal day tomorrow. 🍁

I’ve been listening to so much Little Mix and Ari too. I ordered the signed Stuck With U CD a few months ago. Turns out the signatures are auto penned. 😦 Found out on Twitter. Haven’t received mine yet, but I know people aren’t happy. Yeesh!

Might look into some Black Friday sales, but I’m pretty picky when it comes to certain items. We’ll see.

I’m pretty tired. But I’m planning to watch the last epi of The Queen’s Gambit before I sleep tonight. Woo!

Lastly, our cousin gave birth to her son today! We’re aunties again. 💗 So exciting! I hope we can see everyone soon…maybe 2022?!

This is good night. Take care!

Day 258.

It’s Wednesday! Happy Turkey Eve!! 🙂 There’s so much to prep tomorrow so I’m planning to sleep earlier than usual.

I spent most of my day watching TV. I’ve got two episodes left of The Queen’s Gambit. I’m honestly hooked! I took a long nap after lunch. It was much needed.

Animal Crossing update: I got to tidy up part of my island! Win!! Looking forward to the holiday festivities tomorrow. 🦃🍴Should be a lot of fun.

I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately. It’s a mix of holiday, contemporary, and the Y2K era!! I’ve played my uke two days in a row. I’m learning some new songs.

This time of year is about being with family and friends, but it’s super important to celebrate at home. 2020 has been very different, but may our actions now preserve holidays and celebrations for the future! We can do it!!! 😷❤️ Be mindful of our essential workers too – we owe them so much!

Take care and good night! May you all enjoy the feast. Celebrate responsibly!

Day 257.

Happy Tuesday! 😄 I stayed up watching The Queen’s Gambit. I’m hooked! Beth is such a fierce character. She’s a badass!

I got through some chores today. We’re getting the house ready for Christmas too. Time to put up decorations! It’s always so much fun putting up the tree.

I even got a chance to restart Becoming. My goal is to take it slow during break. I feel like I rush my self during a work week. It’s important to take your time. We’re all works in progress! I hope to finish the book by 2021.

I’m really missing family and friends, but it’s best to keep our distance and catch up online. The news is overwhelming over here in California. We’ve gotta buckle down and get this virus under control.

Animal Crossing update: I’m starting to sell the random items that I dumped on my island. I’m also putting things in storage. CJ is in town! He’s a lot of fun. Must sell him more fish.

I’ve been feeling quite tired and a little off. I just hope it’s fatigue. I’m not eating too much junk nowadays. I’m being super mindful of what I put in my body.

Time to blast some tunes and unwind. I hope y’all had a nice one! Take care.

Good night.

Day 256.

Happy Monday! 😁 I got to sleep in and take it easy. I’ll pretty much be doing the same thing every day. Yay!!! I just started watching The Queen’s Gambit. It’s really good so far.

Highlight of my day: Catching up with our BFF via Zoom. We miss our dinners and hang outs! Maybe next year? 💞

I took a nap before our chat. I overslept a bit, but it worked out.

I just finished watching 17 Again. We’re now watching Center Stage. One of our faves!!! I love the cast, the music, and the dancing.

I also saw Nelly on Dancing with the Stars! He performed his hits. My crush in 7th grade!! 😍🥰

Animal Crossing update: I’m excited for Franklin’s visit! Can’t wait. Goose had me look for some treasure and I didn’t succeed. Lol.

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

Good night.

Day 255.

Happy Sunday! I’m taking it easy this week. It’s nice to have time to myself. I plan on reading, watching movies, and getting back to being creative. ☺️

I decided to treat myself and the family to dessert. I love hojicha! So I bought soft serve with boba and mochi. Delicious!!! I’ll buy it again in December. I also got a hojicha latte. It’s that good!!!

I finished Dash & Lily early this morning. I loved it! I want to rewatch it. It’s so cute. The holiday season is great. We plan on decorating this week.

Animal Crossing update: I’m tidying up the island. I’m selling and storing the items that are out of season. Must get ready for the holidays! I just want everything to look great.

Holiday music is already on repeat! I’ve been playing it since the summer. I love Christmas!!!

I’ve been feeling tired, so I’m trying to conserve my energy. I look forward to my free time. Happy week to all! Take care. Please stay home and continue making good choices. 😷❤️

Good night.

Day 254.

Happy Saturday! I’ll be dealing with some pain and discomfort for the next few days. Hint hint! Lol. Glad it’s here now. Thanksgiving will be a breeze. 😎

I stayed up watching Dash & Lily. I’m really enjoying it! I love the main characters and the music. I’m happy it’s the holiday season.

Day 1 of holiday break. I’m taking it easy. I’m nourishing myself. Everything in moderation – especially my hot Cheetos. 🙃 I’m planning to have a slice of pumpkin spice cheesecake. I’m really enjoying sweets at the moment.

Animal Crossing update: I’ve gotta purchase the new looks and reactions with my NMT. I learned how to make a grass skirt today. And I’m real glad I sold my turnips! Btw the new update deters time travel. I only did that a few times. Guilty! It was for Daisy Mae. 💗

I’m hoping to be more productive tomorrow, but no promises. It’s the weekend!!

Sanrio is still my ultimate fave! It’s always stayed with me. I also really adore Sailor Moon and Nintendo. Kawaii things make me happy!

That was my day. Nothing too eventful. Hope everyone is staying safe! Take care. 😷

Good night.

Day 253.

TGIF!!! It’s been a tough week, but I made it. I’m ready for holiday break. 🙂 Got to take home a pumpkin spice cheesecake from work. Can’t wait to try it tomorrow!

Things are scary in the SF Bay Area right now. COVID cases are surging. A stay at home order has been put in place for the next month starting tomorrow. Stay safe out there, everyone! Please continue to do your part. 😷 Staying away saves lives!!!

I went to the lab this morning to take care of my monthly test. Ordered my meds as soon as I got home. After that I washed dishes and then got ready for work. I usually end at 6pm, but everyone was picked up at 4:30pm. Hurrah! Auntie also helped with some Asian groceries. Woo!!

I’m just glad that I can take it easy for the next few days, but I’m also dealing with some health stuff. I meet with a specialist in two weeks. I hope it’s nothing too serious.

Watched Dateline. It was good! The story was based in Bakersfield. I was intrigued.

Animal Crossing update: Sold my weeds to Leif. Got a few new DIY recipes. It’s going well!

I’m hoping for a good night’s sleep. I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care and enjoy the weekend!!
