Day 227.

Happy Sunday! The weekend came and went.

Good news all around – the Niners beat the Patriots!! Woo! But we dealt with some injuries. 😞 Sending well wishes to all. I watched some of Game 5. The Rays didn’t do very well. Game 6 is on Tuesday. Go Rays!

Time traveled for my turnips in Animal Crossing. I overslept. 😂

I took a nap after showering. Before I did that we went for a walk to get our Halloween candy ready for Saturday. We’re doing a movie day. Might dress up? Not sure yet. Or I could just wear some Disneyland ears.

It’s a busy week, but I must breathe. Everything will be okay.

I must send out my ballot too. Please vote! 🇺🇸 This election is so important. Our futures depend on it!!

The news of COVID-19 cases rising again in the states is disheartening. Global cases are rising too. 😭 Please continue to wear a mask to protect yourself and others, social distance, and do not attend big gatherings. We are still in the first wave. Doctors and medical professionals have been talking about this since March. It’s October!!! 💔

End of my rant. Please take care of yourselves and others. Have a great week! Take care.

Good night.

Day 224.

It was a Happy Thursday for me! Hello!! 🙂

My day started at the dental clinic. I had three fillings to take care of and a new impression for my night guard. I’ve been clenching and grinding my teeth for almost a decade. Super important to have one fitted! I’m excited to get my new guard. Two weeks! Sitting in the chair was an adventure. They had a suction guard in my mouth. My jaw was tired by the end of it. Didn’t deal with a lot of pain. Super thankful for my dental student. A true professional! Thanks, M. 😄

Then before I even got in the chair, my boss sent me a text saying I didn’t need to come in since the only student on my roster was getting picked up early. Hurrah! Here’s to a lovely four day weekend. I’m going to take full advantage of it. I’m planning to clean, do my laundry, and study. I’ll also watch movies and the World Series. Go Rays!!!

It was a lovely afternoon at home. We had brunch and watched an episode of Unsolved Mysteries and Dark Tourist. Japan is still my dream vacation. I’ve been wanting to go since I was a kid. Must continue saving up and once this pandemic settles, I’m off!

I decided to nap since I got up really early. I woke up in time to tune in for the final presidential debate. Voting blue! If you have a moral compass, believe in equality, and justice for all – Vote Biden & Harris! America needs new leadership. People who can lead the way and will listen to Americans across the board. 2016 came and went. My fear was healthcare. Thankful to be in California where I’m taken care of for my preexisting conditions. What about my fellow Americans in other states?! It’s a terrifying thought. People losing their insurance in the middle of a pandemic. The monstrosity! People are voting early. I’ll be filling out my ballot this weekend. CHANGE!

Animal Crossing update: Tex is moving out. C.J. is on Mango buying our fish. Hurrah!

I’m planning to watch a holiday movie before bed. Halloween is practically here, but I love the holiday season!! The music does it for me. So great! 🎄

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

Good night.

Day 222.

How is it already Tuesday?! 🙃 I had the day off and that’s only because I didn’t have a student on my roster. Back to work tomorrow.

I’m so sleepy right now. I’m also a little anxious because of some health stuff. 😢 I hope I’ll be okay. I took a nap earlier, but I’m planning to sleep soon.

I stayed up watching Unsolved Mysteries s2 and Just Like Heaven on demand. UM was so eerie. It was about a woman in Oslo, Norway. Check it out if you’re into mystery and crime. I was spooked after watching. I watched another epi in the afternoon with my sisters. That one was super interesting too. The story took place in Michigan.

Animal Crossing update: I was supposed to sell some turnips, but I forgot. Flick is visiting.

I’ve got two more days of work left. I also have my dental appointment on Thursday. Busy week is almost over. I can get through this.

I’ll mention the World Series. The Rays weren’t too hot. It’s only Game 1. I hope the rest of the series picks up. But for now I want them to tie it. Go Rays!

Take care, everyone!

Good night.

Day 221.

Happy Monday! 🙂

It was a busy day for me. Everything important that I had to take care of before work took place in the morning. The nasal swab for COVID-19 wasn’t too bad. I was getting anxiety over it. Lol. They also swabbed the back of my throat. I should get my results in a day or so. I went to the lab right after. I was anticipating a larger crowd, but it calmed down once I got there. Treated myself to a PSL and two vanilla scones. 😌

Once I got home I was able to decompress a bit before getting ready for work. Time moves too quickly nowadays! I met the new student. He’s cool. My pod is great! We’re pretty small right now, but that could change. The 2nd graders make me laugh with their jokes and silliness. Overall it was a good day with them. The con of my day was getting my finger stuck in the wipe dispenser. It hurt. Ahh!

I had Chinese food waiting for me once I got home and my fave snacks. Watched MNF. Yay! I showered after dinner and took a much needed nap. I just woke up so I could type this.

Animal Crossing update: I played a bit before bed. I had a hard time falling asleep.

I’m off tomorrow since I don’t have a student on my roster. This is temporary, but I’ll take it for now.

I might sleep again or I might watch a show or movie. That was my day! I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care.

Good night!

Day 220.

Happy Sunday! 😎 I stayed up watching Ever After. It’s been a while. Great movie.

Niners win!!! ❤️💛 Tony Dungy, you’re the man for picking us to get the W. 🙂 Jimmy was back in his usual form. Everyone did awesome!!

All I have to say about baseball is Go Rays! 😄

It’s a new week and I’m still adjusting. I’ve also got a dentist appointment on Thursday. The good news is I’m off on Friday. Yay!!! Breathe. I can do this.

Animal Crossing update: I got my turnips at 6am. Lol. And then I fell asleep. My island is alright. Still putting up Halloween decor.

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

Good night.

Day 219.

Happy Saturday! 💜

Yesterday wore me out. My entire body was sore. I’m officially back at work! I fell asleep almost instantaneously. Got about 10 hours. I did nap in the middle of the day. Much needed.

It was another warm day in the city. I spent it indoors. We ordered boba milk tea and slush to keep cool. 🥵

The NLCS is tied up. I hope the Braves show up tomorrow. Yeesh. The Rays won tonight! I’m excited for them. Congrats!!!

Let me express my love for Sanrio again. They’re the best! 💗

I was proactive yesterday and today to find a driving instructor. I’m proud to report that I’ve signed up for two lessons in November. I’m looking forward to conquering my fear and anxiety behind the wheel. Woo! I want my independence. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the driving school I found.

Animal Crossing update: I’m trying to clean up my flowers. Not sure what to do with them. Lol. I gave up halfway. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Planning to watch a movie tonight. Not sure what.

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

Good night.

Day 218.

TGIF! My day was super busy and I’m not sure if I completed everything that my doctors requested. 😬 I was late and they almost didn’t take me. I hate being tardy. 😱 If I have to go back, I’ll schedule another appointment.

It was an odd day. I didn’t sleep very well because I was anxious for my first day back at work. It went well btw! Everything is different, but we gotta adapt. I’m sure I’ll have it down by next week. Wearing masks and a face shield is a trip, but it’s so important. Especially in my case! 😷

Thankful I got a ride to and from work today. I’m trying to figure out my driving schedule and getting a few lessons in to regain my confidence. The accident in 2018 made me more scared to be behind the wheel.

Animal Crossing update: Wart Jr. is moving in and Kidd has moved out. I love welcoming new villagers! 🙂 Hoping to fix up my island this weekend.

I don’t even want to talk about baseball right now. The teams I’m cheering for weren’t clutch. Ugh! Hopefully it’s a better day tomorrow! 🖤🧡

I’m glad it’s the weekend. I can recharge! I’m looking forward to sleeping in. 😄

That was my Friday. It was nice to see familiar faces again. Take care!

Good night.

Day 215.

Happy Tuesday! 😎

I’ve been so tired today. I fought off my nap. I decided to tune in and watch both the NLCS and ALCS. The teams I’m rooting for won tonight! 🙏🏼 YAAASSS! Former Giants on the Braves and I really like Tampa Bay.

Dinner was so good tonight. We had Chicken Alfredo and garlic bread. I helped with dinner yesterday so I got to chill out. Snickers ice cream bars are the best. It’s been my fave since I was a kid. ❤️

Animal Crossing update: my island is doing okay. I’m trying to log 280 hours. Still working on it. It was a mellow day. Nothing too exciting. I’m waiting for Redd to stop by again.

It was pretty warm today. It’ll be nice again for a few more days. The nights are getting colder. I welcome Fall with open arms! I love beanies and scarves.

Hard to believe I’ll be back at work on Friday! Touching base with the boss tomorrow morning. Still a little anxious, but I’ll be okay. Must practice driving. Might have to rely on rides from family for the next week or two.

I already miss basketball. Baseball is winding down. I hope the Niners do better! I know they can.

That was my Tuesday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 212.

Happy Saturday! Day 2 of Pinay Summit 2020 has concluded. I learned so much today! My mind was blown. I met a lot of new faces too. It’s an awesome space and I’m glad to be a part of it!!

I was jamming out to the DJ sets on Twitch. Shoutout to DJ Bitesize, Sammi G, and DJ Umami! 🇵🇭❤️ Loved all the music. Took me back.

It’s been a nourishing day. I’m tired, but this weekend has been so much fun. Summit ends tomorrow. I hope to learn even more and connect with the Pinays/Pinxys that I haven’t met yet.

Animal Crossing update: Fishing Tourney happened today. I did alright. The next one is in January 2021. I’ll be ready!

It’s a big sports day tomorrow. Go Niners! Game 6. Go Heat! Woo!!!

My new bag arrived today. I’m so in love with it. I think it’ll be one of my errand bags. I don’t like being weighed down. It’s the perfect size! And I love the color. 🥰

Well, it’s time to call it a day. I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 211.

TGIF! Happy Friday!! 🙂

Sanrio goodies arrived today. I love Hello Kitty!!! I hope to see you soon, Japan. 🇯🇵💗

I’ve had Little Mix’s new song on repeat all day – Not a Pop Song! I absolutely love it. Their voices are amazing. I hope to see them live in the future. Girl power!!!

I stopped by work today. I took my COVID-19 test, picked up my PPE, and parking permit. It was so nice to see everyone after 7 months of being apart. I’m anxious, nervous, and excited for my first day back, but I’m looking forward to having a routine again. Thankful that my aunt was free to give me a ride. Yay! But I need to start driving myself. Lol for real. It’s been a long time.

Day 1 of Pinayista Summit 2020 was today. I’m looking forward to the weekend! I’ve already met a lot of wonderful people. I can’t wait to see what else is in store. I’m empowered! ❤️

I also caught my friend’s presentation in my native language. Thanks Kirby! 😄 I was listening and processing the conversation. I’ve gotta practice some more. But for the most part, I understood what was being said.

Animal Crossing update: my island is doing well. Tex is fun to talk to. Love his personality!

I’m now eating peppermint bark and getting ready for Christmas. Haha. I’m looking forward to Halloween too, but holiday music is the best. 🥰

The Heat got the W tonight. I caught the 2nd half. Game 6 should be even more exciting!! Go Miami!!! 🖤❤️

Take care and enjoy the weekend!

Good night.
