Day 154.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend. Yay. 😊

Yesterday took a lot of energy, but I’m still very proud of myself whatever the outcome of this will be. I’d love to keep talking and getting to know each other. It’s hard to gauge if feelings will be reciprocated. Taking a chance and creating opportunity is a big step!

I woke up at a decent time. The temperature of my room got me up. It was hot out there! 81 in the city. I decided to go for a walk. I needed to just be with my thoughts. I also got to photograph some things in the neighborhood. I found Bill Pullman posted! He’s one of my faves. 💗

I played some Animal Crossing. Nothing too eventful happening on my island. I’m hoping to have my college friend over this weekend! I’m waiting for Redd to return. I want more art.

My dresser will finally be done tonight. I want to put my things away already. There will be a lot of shuffling around. I’m excited for the change!

Going to remain positive. I’m hoping I get the okay from my medical team.🤞🏼 If I don’t, I’ll have to sit out. I trust their decision regardless of what it is.

Well, it’s back to building. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 153.

I can breathe. I was dealing with a lot of anxiety a few hours ago. I’m okay now. Just a lot going on these last couple of days.

Still processing Amado’s passing. What a beautiful soul! ❤️

Online dating is new for me. I’m making the most of it. I was brave and I put myself out there! So whatever happens, no one really knows.

We are still building my IKEA dresser. Hoping to be finished with it tomorrow.

Got to catch up with friends via text. Always eases me and makes me happy! 💗 They keep me grounded.

Giants lost the series in Houston. Ugh. They’re headed home which is nice! We’ve got a lot to work on. Still cheering for them no matter what. 🖤🧡

Well, it’s back to building. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 151.

How was your Monday? Today was a ride. It’ll be like this all week. I spent most of my time putting together IKEA furnishings with my sisters. We were up for the task! 2 down, so many more to go. I’m confident in our abilities. 💜

Dealing with some anxiety. Internal and external factors. I’m trying not to overthink, but it’s hard. Breathe in and out. Every breath is so important. I won’t take it for granted.

Animal Crossing update: Hopkins is moving in and Ken is leaving. I wanted another villager to leave. He’s still there. 😒 Maybe he’ll be next! Lol. C.J.’s on my island. I completed his challenge and sold all my fish. Hoping for a more eventful day tomorrow.

I rewatched Last Christmas before bed last night. The first time around we kept pausing so the story didn’t mesh well. I cried so much. It’s such a beautiful story! And the setting is the holiday season?! I’m sold.

Work announcement tomorrow. I hope we can stay in and work from home. I haven’t left the house in months. And if I do it’s for a short time and a very significant reason such as a doctor’s appointment. I’m anxious about the announcement too. Can’t control the outcome. I can only control how I react and feel.

I got to catch up with some friends too via text. It’s always nice to check in with folks. I genuinely care about everyone’s safety and well-being. 💕

Lastly, the Giants were almost no-hit in Houston. We were able to score 4 runs, but the Astros got the win. I hope we can win a game in this series. For the rest of the league really! The World Series cheating scandal is the elephant in the room this season. Tsk!!!

Hoping to sleep soon. I need so much energy tomorrow. Take care!

Good night.

Day 150.

Happy Sunday! 🥰

The highlight of my day was catching up with my college friends on Zoom. It’s been too long! I enjoy every second with them. 💙💛 Everyone’s doing well.

Animal Crossing update: rearranging furniture in the living room. My storage is full so I’ll have to sell some items. I need new wallpaper. There’s also fireworks tonight! I’ll catch the last of it before midnight. It’s so beautiful to watch. Love it! My island is doing alright.

Kilig. I don’t know if it’s there yet, but we’ll see. It’s a Filipino word. Google it. 😂 I guess stepping out of my comfort zone is helping me gain confidence. Whether this works out or not. Dude seems really nice and understanding. Carpe diem!!!

I got some sad news today and I’m processing it. So heartbreaking. 😭💔

Giants didn’t take the series in LA. I’m just glad we didn’t get swept. 🖤🧡

It’ll be a busy day tomorrow and the rest of the week. Always making progress. But must pace myself.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Have a great week! Take care.

Good night.

Day 149.

I was very productive today! I even got to sleep in. I’m proud of myself. I felt a little discouraged in the beginning, but I can get through this. 🙂

Animal Crossing update: my island is doing alright. Happy Birthday to Bud! 🥳 I stopped by his house a few times to party with him. He’s still dancing and eating cake. Haha. Can’t wait until I can celebrate mine. Won’t be until next year, but should be fun!

Played my uke again. I haven’t picked it up in the last week. I love strumming it.

I decided to put eyeshadow and eyeliner on. It’s been so long. It’s simple, but helps make your eyes pop! 👁 I don’t wear mascara often, but if I must I can’t wear my glasses. It smudges.

Giants get the W in LA! Cueto did really well. Our offense showed up tonight too. 5-4 victory! 🥰🖤🧡

Our cousin is expecting a girl! We’ve got a nephew on the way too next year. So exciting! Can’t wait to spoil them. 😄 I miss our family. Wish we could all be together again.

That was my Saturday. Hoping to take it easy tomorrow, but it’s chore day! Hurrah.

Good night.

Day 148.

Ahh, I’m a little late! Had to take care of some stuff.

Watched a few episodes of Twilight Zone with the fam. So many great episodes! Rod Serling is the best. 🖤

Animal Crossing update: Gulliver gifted me the Stonehenge. So cool! I’m still trying to figure out where to put it. Doing my best to clean up my island.

I’m trying to detox my social media usage. It can be a lot. I can waste hours on it. I’m planning to read more. Must focus on my career goals!!!

I got my exercise in too. The resistance bands are kicking my butt. It’s working!

Giants lost in LA. I just want one win from the series. PLS!!!

There’s a lot to do. I overthink a lot. Lots of thinking during the pandemic. We’re still in the thick of it. Keep safe, everyone!!! 😷

Enjoy the weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 144.

Happy Monday! 💟

It was a productive day. My highlight was visiting our Lola (grandma). We’ve been talking to her on the phone these last few months, but she loves it when we stop by so that’s what we did in the afternoon. We baked brownies last night and placed them in an airtight container. It’s her favorite dessert. It’s been tough not being able to hug her. 😭 But we love seeing her happy.

Before we went home we stopped by Burger King to grab lunch. I really wanted a Whopper. The commercial worked on me! Haha. It’s my favorite thing to order. The Hershey pie too. 😋

After lunch I washed dishes. It piled up these last few days. I always listen to music to get it done faster.

I took a nap since I woke up early. I needed the two hours of sleep. My pin, scrunchies, mask, and Switch Lite case arrived today. I love receiving happy mail! It’s the best. 🥰

Giants didn’t win in Colorado. Hoping they take a game before heading to LA again later this week. Ah!

I’ll be tackling my to do list all week. I’ll get it all done. Anyway, we’re currently watching Forrest Gump. One of my faves!!

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 141.

TGIF! 😎

  • I slept okay.
  • I finished Kiki’s Delivery Service. I loved it! I want a red bow now.
  • I helped out with lunch this afternoon. We made spam, garlic rice, and fried eggs. We also had tomatoes. We also made spam musubi for the first time. Turned out well!
  • Boba and ice cream for dessert. Boba was delicious! We ordered from honey creme. I’ll try the ice cream in a bit.
  • Washed the dishes.
  • I’m finally registered for my TEFL course! Let’s do this!!! I’m excited to learn again.
  • Catching up with friends via text. Yay!
  • I realized even more today that self-care is so important. I played my usual round of Animal Crossing and listened to the Giants game on the radio. I’m also listening to music right now. The little things energize me.
  • Now I’m trying to figure out if I should buy this cool Simpsons print. Decisions.

That was my Friday! Time to recharge this weekend. Happy weekend to all. Take care!

Good night.

Day 140.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend. 😎

I was able to buy the Colourpop Sailor Moon eyeshadow palette. The blushes were in my cart, but I didn’t check out fast enough and they sold out. I hope there’s another restock. I was a bit frustrated with the process tbqh. I wasn’t alone in feeling that. The collection was released at 10am PDT. I entered the contest on IG, Twitter, and FB for a chance to win the entire collection. So maybe there’s luck on my side. 🙂

I stayed up watching the first season of Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love. It’s such a cute show and the cast is really good. I might start Part 2 tonight.

It’s been a busy, but productive week! I’ve got some things to prep for the potential after school enrichment courses I might be teaching in the Fall. Must brainstorm! It’s different from what I typically take care of at work, but it’s a nice way to share my passions with the community. 🙂 It was nice catching up with the boss.

I also caught up with my therapist on the phone after three weeks. It’s great to just talk and get her perspective.

Listened to some of the Giants game on the radio. Watched a bit of the Clippers/Lakers game too. Basketball is back!

There’s a lot to do these next upcoming weeks, but I’m looking forward to the change. Yay!

Animal Crossing update: Bought another painting from Redd. I check online to make sure it’s authentic. It was! Finally caught the gigas giant clam. It was challenging to get. It took me a few tries. I donated it to my island’s museum!

Uke update: I’m playing Somewhere Over The Rainbow with less errors. This is huge! I even recorded audio of me playing this afternoon. I sound good. When I’m really comfortable I’ll shoot a video to share with friends and family.

A&W rules btw! I love their Coney Cheese dog and curds.

Well, that was my day. Hope yours went well! Take care always.

Good night.
