Day 228.

Happy Monday!

I’ve been feeling super tired. Not getting enough sleep last night could be a factor. I also dealt with the sun today and no cap. Photosensitivity is a pain! 😞 Btw maskne is real and I’m dealing with it. My skin is dry and irritated! I was able to shower after work and just lie down. Energy levels are low.

Work went well. Mondays are always tough. I had a 4-day weekend and that just came and went. Sighhh. The weekend will be here again soon enough.

I’m currently dealing with food coma. The nachos were legit. The churro was delicious and so was the tres leches slice of cake. 😍😋 I’m done for the night.

Animal Crossing update: Penelope is settled in and wandering the island. I’m still trying to figure out what I’ll be wearing for Halloween in the game. I’ve got a few more days to finalize. Should be fun!

America needs change. We are 8 days away from the election. VOTE!

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

Good night.

Day 209.

It’s Wednesday! We’ve made it to the middle of the week. 💗

Today was our Tito Rino’s funeral. I wish I could’ve been there, but it’s still too risky. I said a prayer for him. He’s truly missed. 🤍 Family over everything. It’s important to keep in touch with everyone on the regular especially during the pandemic and once life normalizes again.

I had to get up early to watch the dogs. They’re such a handful. Rascals! I had coffee and snacks to keep me going for a few hours. I played Animal Crossing to pass the time. Tex is moving in. Kinda wish I would’ve found my own villager, but that’s fine. I know for next time to seek a new one out ASAP.

I was able to clean, apply Vaseline, and put a new bandage on my skin – the one near my eye and the one near my armpit. Must take care of it daily.

Did a load of laundry after my shower. I was so productive today! Planning to clean tomorrow.

Caught part of the VP debate. I didn’t watch all of it. Progress needs to be made again in our country. Protect womyn and their rights! Protect those with underlying conditions! Let’s have a conversation about racial & social justice, climate change, global warming, and the importance of science. We need strong leaders! BIDEN HARRIS 2020! 💙

Watched Postseason baseball. Disappointed that the Padres didn’t tie the series versus LA. 😒 They gotta win the next one to stay afloat in the series. I hope they do. BEAT LA!!!! 🖤🧡

Still dealing with anxiety and being sad. I’ll make it! I know I will. My feelings are valid. Suppressing them won’t help me. Acceptance. Still staying away from a certain dating app. Once I’m brave again – I’ll return.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 208.

Happy Tuesday! 💕

It was a day for me. I didn’t sleep very well because I was dealing with anxiety. I always get pretty anxious for my doctor’s appointments. This one was a bit different since it’s the dermatologist! I rarely go.

Fast forward to 9:45am. We were running a bit late, but I got there in time. Thankful that my aunt can provide me with rides. Anyway, I arrive and there are a few people ahead of me. Once I check in, the receptionist leads me to the back room. This is where the magic happens!

I’ve dealt with skin tags for the last few years. Both were removed today! Huzzah!!! I hope my insurance processes it because 1. They were painful and 2. absolutely necessary for my own well-being since one of them was close to my left eye. I’m wearing a bandage there right now. I’m unable to get it wet for the next 24 hours. I must clean and dry it for the next 2-3 weeks! The doctors were really nice too. Thanks for your help.

Once I got home, I took a very long nap. The lidocaine wore off and I could feel the sting. I didn’t get up until 5ish in the afternoon.

I ate my lunch and then I tuned in online for the livestream of my uncle’s services. His passing was untimely. Makes me sad. Given that we’re still in the middle of the pandemic, I’m unable to attend his funeral. I’ve been praying for him. RIP Tito Rino. 🤍

Had In-N-Out for dinner. Decided to wash the dishes too since I wasn’t super productive today. I plan on studying tomorrow and finally get to my laundry.

I’m still dealing with my emotions and feelings. It’s a rough patch. Ugh! But I’ll make it. I’m strong!! 💜

Lastly, my Animal Crossing update. Must look for a new villager. Al has left my island. More Halloween decor is going up this week! Yeah!!

Take care, everyone!

Good night.

Day 206.

Happy Sunday! A new week is upon us. 🙂

My day was okay. I watched a lot of sports – football and the NBA Finals. Niners are 0-2 at home. We lost to the Eagles. WTH?!! Very happy for Miami. They’re trailing 2-1, but Jimmy Butler went off. I hope the next game is just as exciting.

Animal Crossing update: I slept in so I had to time travel to get turnips again. Today is also Goose’s Birthday! Good times.

Hoping for a better week. I know I’ve been saying I hope to be productive. And I will be! I must discipline myself.

Highlight of the day: Happy Lemon. This’ll be the last of my boba fix until the end of the year. I’ve ordered too much too often. 🍋

I’m super excited to see dermatology this Tuesday. I hope they can help me out ASAP!

Well, this is good night. Take care!

Day 204.

Where did the week go?! Happy Friday! 💜

I tried to sleep early last night and it didn’t work out for me since I decided to watch Ready or Not. I really liked it. Plot twists everywhere! Definitely a guessing game.

I woke up in time, but it was hard. I had to get ready for my flu shot appointment. I get it every year. Super important for my health! It was quite busy, but the wait wasn’t long. Afterwards, we picked up lunch at our local taqueria. I went with a carne asada burrito. It’s been a while. 😋 Chips and salsa were so good too.

I did a bit of chores and then I decided to take a nap. I was super tired. Fell asleep for a few hours. I’m pretty energetic now. Might watch another movie tonight.

Animal Crossing update: Vivian is finally moved in! Super exciting. I watered my pumpkins. I also caught another scorpion. My count is 2! They’re so sneaky.

I want to try on some makeup. It’s the only time to freely wear it at home. I love lipstick, eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush, and highlight! 💕 No one will ever see my lipstick again until we’re mask free. 😷

Planning to clean and organize tomorrow. I hope to practice driving for a bit this weekend. I go back to work in TWO WEEKS! I’m a little anxious, but I think I’ll be okay. Super important to be socially distant from everyone, especially adults. I’m double masking and putting on the face shield.

We watched a bit of Meet the Parents. Haven’t seen it in a while. I forgot how funny it was. Hehe.

Take care and happy weekend to all!

Good night.

Day 202.

I’ve dealt with a lot of pain and discomfort today. I did my best to have a good day. 🙂

It’s been 7 months since my last dental visit. It was so nice to see my student dentist and catch up. Overall, my teeth are looking much better! I had to deal with the probing part this afternoon. It hurt, but I got through it. My cleaning was also done manually. All the other tools must be cleared by COVID-19 protocol. A lot has changed, but I’m adapting! After my appointment, I decided to treat myself to another PSL. 🎃

I’ve just been listening to the same music for the last week. It’s been a week since my heart was broken. I’m still healing and giving myself the time to process. 😭💔 I was on Bumble for a bit before I went to sleep last night and I had to deactivate my profile again. I’m still hurting. 😔

Animal Crossing update: My new art piece is now in my museum. Label was in town. Bud is moving out and Vivian is moving in. It’s spooky season starting tomorrow. I’m excited for all the orange!!

Postseason baseball wasn’t the best today. The Twins were eliminated. 😞 I still have a bunch of other teams to root for. BEAT LA!!!! 🖤🧡

I just feel like crap today. I’m hoping I feel better tomorrow. 💜

Take care, y’all! Farewell to you, September.

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 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 179.

Happy Labor Day! Thank you to all essential workers during this unprecedented time. ❤️

So the dating scene is scarce. I matched with a mutual friend and that went nowhere. I’m still a little hesitant to continue contact with the guy I guess I’m still keeping in touch with. He’s seeking out marriage. I’m seeking out a relationship. My coworker has told me not to stress about my conversations with him. Do I just reach out again? Sigh. Dating app fatigue is real. I got some pointers from Bumble support, but no luck. I’m going to verify my profile tomorrow. Let’s see if my matches improve.

I went for a walk today to help with some groceries and I needed to clear my head. It was a beautiful day! 🥰

I took a nap once we got back. I couldn’t deal with the warmth at home. I had a cooling blanket. Kinda helped.

Animal Crossing update: so close to paying off my loan! I hope I pay it off this week.

I gotta buckle down and study some more this week. I’m sure I’ll also be provided with a work update. Ah! I’m a little stressed.

Time to take care of trash night. I got my squats done too! ✅ My workout routine is about 15 minutes with my resistance bands.

Still trying to remain positive during this pandemic. I’m up and down. That’s the truth.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Football is pretty much here. Go Niners! ❤️💛 And the Giants beat the Dbacks again. 😎🖤🧡 Back at .500!!!

Good night.

Day 177.

I’m still in this weird state of trying to move on and feeling sad. Maybe I am overthinking, but it’s like if a guy was really interested, he’d do anything to stay present and keep connected. Sighhh. I don’t know. I did match with some new people, so that’s cool. And I can always rely on my friends for advice and affirmation. ❤️

I napped the warm day away. I did have some matcha-vanilla swirl with boba from Matcha Cafe Maiko. One of the best places for dessert! Food makes me happy. 😋

I caught the last half of the Giants game. Welcome back, MadBum! Wish he was still with us, but all the best to him. We got the W! 😎🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: sold items, found the message in a bottle, and paid off part of my loan. I must remember to buy turnips tomorrow!

I’m going to study a bit more tonight. I have energy to get through one more section. I finished my exercise for the day too. 600 squats done for the week! It’s a rest day for me tomorrow. I’ll clean and continue studying.

I wanted to watch a movie tonight, but I might just save it. We’ll see how I’m feeling.

That was my Saturday. I’m thinking of adding another eyeshadow palette to my collection, but I don’t need it. 😩 Conflicted.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.
