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.

Time is winding down.

This title applies to many things going on in my life right now.

  1. The Giants got the win and man was it torturous! 10 games remaining, 2 game lead against our rivals. BEAT LA!!!! 🖤🧡🖤🧡
  2. Feeling discouraged because I shared the bday and Lupus fundraiser for our dear friend, Sarah and I’ve only gotten a handful of donations. Very thankful to those who have already donated! 🙏🏼 I hope we hit our goal before or on 10/16!!! 💜
  3. Lots of other things going on, but I’ll save that for another day.

Work went well. It’s just too quiet in the office, so I played my fave tunes to get through the day.

Starting anew is worth it!!!! ❤️

I’m taking more photos again. The fog was really pretty! 🌁

I’m tired, but I need to clean and study later. It’ll all get done.

Good night and Go Giants!!!!

Day 435.

TGIF! It’s been a week. I made it!

I’m feeling sad right now. My sports teams 😭💔 Warriors were eliminated and the Giants lost. I cannot!!! I’ll be okay. It just stings. Is it football season yet?!!!

It was a typical day. I did the usual. I was waiting for the Sanrio drops and they’re all cute tees! I might buy one. We’ll see. I was a responsible adult today too and paid some bills.

ACNH update: The usual business on Mango. Didn’t sell all my turnips because the prices were too low. Paid some of my loan too.

Today was also put on purple day! I wore my aware necklace and my purple Reeboks. For my fellow Lupus warriors 💜

My assignment was finally graded. I’m going to take my quiz before bed. I’ll be studying all weekend too! I got this.

Have a great weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 425.

Happy Tuesday! 💕

  • It was a good day! I’ve got a bunch to take care of and I’m hoping to do that tonight. Hw and writing my piece for a work project. I also need to reprint the photo which will serve as my prop.
  • Animal Crossing update: Turnips weren’t good today. Maybe tomorrow! I’m still paying off my current house loan. I need to fly over to my siblings islands. I hope I can make it!! It’s Cherry’s bday and I want to see my sister’s entrance.
  • Giants win! So proud of them. 🖤🧡
  • I’m still looking for more kawaii things. 😍🥰
  • Figured out the sticker situation. Supposedly the envelope needed more postage? Very odd. Hoping it finally reaches me this weekend!! 🥲
  • I got to catch up with Dad. Always nice to talk to him.
  • Little Mix! They finally won Best British Group!!! History!!!! They also shouted out so many female groups: Spice Girls, Sugababes, Girls Aloud and more. GRL PWR! ✌️❤️
  • I’m gonna play some more ACNH and then get to work. I also need to take my meds. The life of a Lupus patient. It keeps me going so I’m thankful. 💜

Hope y’all had a nice one! Take care.

Good night.

Day 424.

Things are normalizing. But I’ve gotten used to blogging since the pandemic and I really don’t want to stop. We’ll see. 🙃🥲

Happy Monday! The weekend came and went. It’s already been a busy start to the week. I gotta study loads tonight! I fell asleep.

  • I woke up to buy a bag. Secured said bag. Yay! 👜💜
  • I went back to sleep afterwards. I got up in time to get ready for work. I was sluggish.
  • Work went well! It was a really warm day. I’m starting to tan which is great. I decided to sign up for the school’s photo project. I hope it turns out well.
  • I ate pizza and leftovers for dinner. Hurrah! Garlic knots were so good.
  • Animal Crossing update: I sold some turnips. I also helped my sister with some terraforming and waterscaping. It turned out well! I’m trying to work on other parts of my island too. Patience!
  • Today is also World Lupus Day! 💜 I was diagnosed at 17. Can’t stop, won’t stop is still my mentality. But when I’m tired, I’m going to listen to my body and nap! Some Lupus Warriors have passed on so I keep fighting in their memory. 💜💜💜💜🤍
  • Warriors and Giants win! 💙💛🖤🧡
  • Going to get ready to study. Must get a lot done tonight!!

I hope it was a nice day for everyone. Take care!!

Good night.

Day 359.

Happy Saturday!! I haven’t done much today. It’s been very mellow.

  • I’m reflecting on life and memories for most of the day. Our Lola is getting older and I hope she’s doing okay. I’m just getting sentimental. 😭❤️
  • I got to sleep in and recharge.
  • I’ve been watching tv all day. We’re currently watching She’s All That. One of our faves!!! 💗
  • Animal Crossing update: Usual business on Mango. I sold the rest of my turnips. Hoping to do more with my island tomorrow.
  • I also started playing Luigi’s Mansion 3. I need to read up on it since I’m not very good at playing it yet. We’ll see.
  • I think the nausea has subsided. I hope it doesn’t happen again because it’s a terrible feeling. Most likely vaccine side effects and my current state.
  • Hoping to rest up again for tomorrow. Hopefully I can get in some exercise.
  • And I remember my friend Sarah today. Missing you lots. 💜🤍
  • Alright, back to the movie.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 328.

I dedicate this post to my dear friend, Sarah! Today would’ve been her 30th. Happy Birthday!! 🎂💗 I miss catching up via text or social media, checking in, and our college days. Dearly missed down here. 💜 See you in my dreams! Don’t be a stranger. #LupusWarriors

  • Today was challenging. Wednesdays always are because of my roster, but I did it!
  • I should’ve worn another layer. It was super cold on the roof.
  • My leggings arrived today. I’m waiting for another pair. My Animal Crossing bedding should be here tomorrow! Can’t wait. 😌
  • Animal Crossing update: sold some turnips. Redd is in town, but there was nothing new. I’ll wait for his next visit.
  • I’m hoping to have a good night’s sleep. I meditated before bed yesterday. I’d like to do that more often.
  • 17 days until our birthday! I can’t believe it. 🥳
  • I didn’t get a chance to study for my class today. Maybe tomorrow?! We’ll see. I’m more productive during the weekend.
  • The wear and tear of this pandemic is real. I’m tired, but we gotta keep going!! I can.
  • That was my day. It’s almost the weekend. Hope y’all had a nice one!

Good night.

Day 299.

Happy Tuesday! How was your day?

  • Watched more Gossip Girl! The first season is amazing. I’m going to stick with it and try to finish all the seasons.
  • I didn’t sleep very well or right away because I was anxious for my driving lesson. I haven’t driven since last month.
  • Thankfully, my driving instructor understood and my lesson went well. Still some things to improve on, but I hope I can practice even more. Maybe this weekend? One of my goals is to drive to Japantown. 🙂
  • I finished all of my work trainings! Yay!!! Just need to take care of my COVID test and I’ll be set to return to work next week.
  • Spent time with the dogs. 💕
  • Still thinking of when we can all fly and travel again.
  • Highlight of my day: Followed up with my medical team. I love catching up with everyone from clinic! Thankful for their care and guidance. 💜
  • Savoring my last few days of break. It came and went! 😢
  • Lastly, Happy Birthday to you, Lolo (grandpa)! We never got the chance to meet and get to know you here in the States. Whenever you are – I hope you’re happy and having a grand time! RIP 💗

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

Good night.

Day 203.

I dealt with a lot of pain today. I was sleepy and fatigued for most of my day. I’m boring. 😂

Good news: I got my sunnies face the perfector stick! I can’t wait to try it. Maybe tomorrow? You can blur your skin and add balm. The dewy look.

Animal Crossing update: It’s October! Spooky season is here. I have a mini pumpkin patch on my island. Hopefully the pumpkins grow in a few days. Can’t wait to decorate everything orange and black. 🎃 Bud is gone and Vivian moves in tomorrow.

I watched postseason baseball today. I caught the A’s and the Padres. Everyone except our rivals. Go teams! 😎

I had a very productive session with my therapist today. I was almost on the verge of tears, but I stopped myself. I am valid. I am worthy. I will not dwell on the past. I tried. Now it’s time to move on. 💪🏼 I can!

Today is also the start of Lupus Awareness Month! Sarah used to always spread visibility and awareness. We’ll continue the story. We miss her so much. 💜

I’ve got my flu shot appointment tomorrow. I’m so ready! The AQI is getting bad again. I hope it won’t take long. I’ll walk fast.

That was my Thursday. Hoping to do more this upcoming weekend! Take care, y’all.

Good night.
