Happy June!

This month is flying and I’m making the most of it! 🙂 I caught up with friends on Thursday and tried Doppio Zero. Never been before so I wanted to try! I had the oxtail fettuccine and a Bellini. The food was absolutely amazing. I’ll be back for sure!!!

It was nice to see everyone again. We haven’t seen each other in months. Really thankful it all worked out. Afterwards we went to get ice cream. Salt & Straw!!! I went with a new flavor – Baked Brie and Fig Cheesecake. A very nice combo!🍦

I’m almost done with my TEFL cert! Better late than never!!!! That’s my motto. Slowly getting to where I need to be. Taking chances and staying confident despite my anxiety. Breathe.

Warriors won! 2-2 and back to the bay. Yee!!! 💙💛 Giants beat LA. 😎🖤🧡

I’m excited for a lot of things. Can’t wait! Hoping to sleep soon, but I’m such a night owl.

Happy weekend to all! 💗

Update.

Hello! It’s been a few weeks and I come with an update.

I’ve attended a few events: Buster Posey Day at the yard, my first concert since 2019, and celebrated Mother’s Day with the fam. I also just signed papers to be a barista/cashier again! I hope it goes well.🤞

I had my interview for the mochi film I decided to help with and l was a mess. I probably should’ve prepared more beforehand and I was nervous! But Kristine was very patient with me. I hope I didn’t embarrass myself. 😬 I overthink a lot. Wahhh!

I need to finish my cert for my TEFL. I’ve put it off for so long. I’m almost there! I need to complete it before the end of June. I’m a little stressed since I start training for my new gig next week. Also nervous for that.

I saw Paul McCartney on Sunday! It was amazing. I’ve seen both living Beatles. George was my favorite. RIP to him and John. Truly missed! 🤍

Getting sleepy. My nap threw me off. And omg the Philippine election. Don’t even get me started! It’s upsetting to me as a Filipino American. I want real leadership to steer the country in the right direction. I want progress! I wasn’t born there, but I’m still very connected to the birthplace of my parents and ancestors. LABAN 🇵🇭💗

There’s a lot to do and I’m feeling overwhelmed sometimes. Taking it a day at a time! Wishing you all well. Until next time.

A busy 🐝!

Hello! It’s been a while. Just wanted to type up an update. 🙂 I hope everyone is doing well! The NBA playoffs have started, baseball is back (Go Giants! 🖤🧡), and spring is here!!! ☀️ Love it.

I attended the NCCBF! 🌸 Both weekends. First weekend was to visit our cousin and his partner. She’s running her own small biz! Good times. The second weekend we lined up early for teriburgers! Delicious. Wish we bought more. 😋 Also got to buy Japanese snacks, mochi, and some other goodies. Japantown is one of my fave spots in the city!

A few days ago – we returned to Davis. It was for Dr. Fujimoto’s memorial. So many beautiful stories and memories were shared. I miss college! I was inspired again just being back. I want to do more!!! Aggies 🐴💙💛 We bought all of our favorite food, caught up with familiar faces, and took some nice pics on campus. We bought some new UCD swag to wear and rep. We missed Picnic Day by 2 days! I ended up buying this year’s tee.

I’m in the middle of job hunting again. I’d like to have a summer job if I can find one. Looking for a stable position that also works with my own schedule + energy levels. Being a lupus patient can be a lot, but it’s important to listen to your body! Rest is essential. In my case, I always nap. 💜 Lupus Awareness Month is coming up. I love sharing facts and information!!

I’m playing a lot of Pocket Camp! It’s fun. Too many Animal Crossing games to choose from.

Lots of books on my reading list! I also have tv shows and movies I’ve been meaning to watch. Balance is so important right now! I’m also trying to exercise more. Time management. 😮‍💨

Wishing you all a great week! 💗

Good night.

Berkeley.

Quick stop in Berkeley on Friday. We’re rarely in the area! Made the most of our time. The food makes everything worthwhile. 🥰

Third culture bakery is a fave! Got our usual order of mochi doughnuts and muffins. I also ordered a matcha latte with regular milk and honey. SO GOOD. 😋 For lunch, we went to #POKI. I had the cooked salmon over rice. Loved it! Would get it again.

Also got to see our bestie later that day. Always great to hear from her!! 💗

I can’t believe it’s already Sunday! I’m still processing the last two weeks. Trying to improve my life in so many ways. A death reminds me of my own mortality, but to also cherish my time here on earth. We miss our uncle! 🤍

I’ve played a lot of Animal Crossing New Leaf. It’s actually my fave right now compared to New Horizons. Wild! I played everyday in 2020. I haven’t played much as of late.

Well, hoping to ko soon. I’m sleepy. But I also want to watch a movie. Maybe Tall Girl 2?!

Good night.

35.

Farewell to 34, hello to 35! Time flies. It was a beautiful day well spent with family and amazing food. We’re still working on leftovers. It was a joyous time celebrating our new year. 💜

Part of me is sad because I’m grieving the passing of our paternal uncle. I really wish we could be with the rest of our family in Canada. Maybe we can visit next year? His first day of visitation was yesterday. Today will be emotional. Holding my dear family close to my heart. We sent over a floral arrangement and it’s beautiful.

I can still hear his voice in my head. Very soft-spoken, but kind. My proudest moments were speaking Kapampángan with him. He’s the only one out of the siblings who was born in Pampanga. I think that’s awesome!!! I hope to see it one day. 🇵🇭

I’m just reminiscing. I’ll have more to say come Friday. I hope I can get through the day later. It’s been heavy since last week. Praying for my uncle’s beautiful soul. 🤍

Good night.

Life update.

It’s been warm in San Francisco! It’s been nice, but also concerning. Growing up I remember February always brought rain and the cold. I don’t hate it! It’s nice to walk around and catch some rays. Global warming and climate change is happening. Terrifying!!!

The most important errand I ran this week was renewing my DL. I made my appointment to the DMV beforehand and prepared all the necessary documents. I was there 30 minutes at most. I hope my picture turned out okay! 😂

Still praying and thinking of our uncle. Still haven’t been sleeping well, but I’m trying. Worrying puts my body under a lot of stress. Trying to normalize a routine that works for me.

Temp work is picking back up again! I logged an hour, but I had to nap afterwards. The heat wasn’t helping. I hope to get more done next week.

I’m trying to figure out my Saturday plans. Hmm…I might just stay in. I really wanted to make a quick trip to See’s. Their chocolate is the best. 😋 Birthday countdown is 8 days!!! It’s a mix of dread and excitement. Ahh. But I always tell myself, it’s a privilege to grow old. ❤️

I hope to sleep soon. Wishing you all well! Happy weekend ☀️

Take care!!

Never mind.

Haven’t been able to blog daily, so I’ll just type up an entry when I can. 😬

I had a very busy day. Now I’m tired. I’d love to nap right now. 😴 But first I’m going to look into impala skates. I want to start rollerblading again! I used to all the time growing up. I think it’d be fun to pick it up again.

Still praying for our uncle. We love you, Tito Roland! 💗

ACNH not being good to me right now. I ordered a statue and it hasn’t been delivered to me. It’s going on 2 days. Wth?!! 😤

Don’t have any exciting weekend plans. I’ll be cleaning and gathering donations or putting things up on Poshmark.

Alright I’m going to lie down. Happy weekend to all!

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.
