Day 200.

Case of the Mondays. I stayed up watching the Chadwick Boseman special on Disney+. And then I watched Another Cinderella Story. I love Selena Gomez! And then this afternoon my sister and I watched Selena. We love that movie so much. ❤️

I’ve been pretty sluggish today. I just finished my workout! 💪🏼 Smashing my goals. I’m still sad, but I’m slowly moving on. It’s only been a week.

Animal Crossing update: Nothing too eventful on my island. I’m waiting for the Halloween update!! 🎃

So much baseball and basketball this week. I’m excited! I love sports. It’s also a busy week for me. Dental appointment on Wednesday, call with my boss on Thursday, and my flu shot on Friday. Woo!

Thinking of all the folx up North. Fires are raging again here in Northern California. Stay safe!! 💗

Planning to drive this week. I must practice. That’s the only way I’ll get better. I have some anxiety, but I’ll be okay. I know I can do this!

It was a very warm day in the city – 90 degrees! Should be cooler tomorrow. We bought Cafe Maiko again. I can’t resist the matcha swirl sundae with boba. 😋

Flowers by DJ Spoony feat. Sugababes is really good. The original is by Sweet Female Attitude. 🇬🇧 artists are amazing!!

That was my Monday. Hoping to do more tomorrow. Take care!

Good night.

Day 197.

TGIF! It’s been a ride for me this week. I think I’m slowly returning to myself. Currently listening to A*Teens – Firefly. ❤️

I’ve gotta take care of all of this work stuff. I might be back in two weeks! It’s pretty wild. 😱 I’m ready to get back to it. It’ll be very different, but I need routine in my life. I’m ready to drive!!

Had Shake Shack for lunch. It was delicious! Didn’t get my usual. I kinda wish I did. Cheese fries always make me happy. 🙂

I’ve skipped out on exercising for the last few days. Time to buckle down and get back to doing it! I miss it honestly.

The Giants have control of their destiny. We won 1/2 today. Not a fan of Coonrod. Ughhh….our bullpen hasn’t been super reliable either. I don’t know how to feel about the postseason. We either get in or we don’t. 2 games remaining. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: bought a green Victorian dress. Mom helped me pick it out. Paid some of my new loan off. Sold my turnips. It was a good day!

I’m hungry. I napped for a bit. I think we have cookies here. Must eat dinner first.

Enjoy the weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 165.

Happy Monday! 💕 I stayed up watching Last Christmas again. I love the movie, the music, and the cast! All the feels.

I’ve been exercising consistently and it burns. But I feel better about myself. It boosts my mood. Much needed during these unique times.

Animal Crossing update: I only played a little today. I sold a few things, cleaned up some items, and interacted with my villagers. K.K. was playing at the plaza.

Still in my head a lot, but I’m working through it.

I should’ve cleaned more today, but yesterday wore me out. Will tackle more things tomorrow.

We’re going to be watching Splendor in the Grass. It’ll be my first viewing. So excited! I hope I like it.

I played my Britney Spears vinyl again. MOOD.

Good night.

Day 160.

Currently playing: Holiday – Little Mix 🧜🏼‍♀️

How is Wednesday almost over?! 😱 Time went by pretty quickly this week.

California is currently dealing with a number of fires. Scary times in the state along with the pandemic. Stay safe, everyone!

San Francisco could come off the watch list as soon as tomorrow, but we must continue to be vigilant and practice all the guidelines to keep everyone safe. I’m still dealing with a lot of anxiety from all of this. Seeking connection has kind of been my saving grace. Keeping in touch with friends and family has also helped. I miss everyone! ❤️

George Michael, The Aces, and Little Mix have been on repeat. They are the current soundtracks of my life. Figuring things out for myself. I don’t want to jump to conclusions or expect too much. I had a very good teletherapy session with my therapist today and she gave me a lot of input & advice. I may take her up on it. We’ll see. Every risk in life requires being courageous!

Speaking of Little Mix, Happy 9th Anniversary! I love them so much and I still hope to see them live in the future. 💗

Happy World Photography Day!! 📸

Animal Crossing update: my island is pretty much the same. Flick is visiting. I’ve been a bit busy to keep up with my game. It’s good I’m enrolled in a course. It’s all about balance. I still love the game, but I’m investing my energy and time into my potential calling.

Giants defeat the Angels! We’ve got a 2 game winning streak. Woo!!! 🖤🧡

Planning to build my additional storage tomorrow. We’re almost done with all the furnishings. Two more projects!

Hope y’all had a nice one. 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.

Day 133.

Happy Thursday!

  • Opening Day! It’s different, but I’ll take it. The Giants didn’t do very well. 8-1 down in LA. We’re still rebuilding. Patience. 🖤🧡 I miss Boch!
  • Grocery run. I helped unload and put things away. Yay for essentials!
  • 10 years of 1D! The first concert we (sisters and I) attended was in 2012 at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland. Great memories! I miss live music.
  • It’s almost the weekend. I’m so happy.
  • Animal Crossing update: must sell more items and figure out what to do with my flowers. It’s still on my to do list. 😂
  • Lastly, I exercised today! I rode the stationary bike twice. It was a challenge, but I did it! Must build my endurance. I’m feeling pretty good.
  • That was my day! I hope yours went well. 🙂

Take care and good night. BEAT LA!!!!!

Day 58.

Sleep was okay. I had an anxiety attack before bed. It made it hard for me to sleep. I had to do some breathing exercises. I eventually fell asleep for a few hours.

I was anxious for the cookie delivery. It was delivered on time. Whew. We’ll figure out how to distribute them tomorrow.

My Animal Crossing house renovation was a success! There’s more room for items and fixtures. Must pay off this current loan to expand once again. I’m making a lot of great progress. AC keeps me on my toes.

Lunch was delicious. Thanks to the sister! She ordered Greek food for us. Always satisfying.

I’m still practicing the uke. After concluding the 30 day challenge, I’ve decided to keep going. I know I need work with chord changes and challenging myself to not look down at the fretboard. I practiced a bit of that this afternoon. I can do about 4 chords. Practice and patience is my motto. Thanks, Dad! I want to get I’m Yours down and Winter Things. Love that song.

I didn’t get to nap today so I’m a little cranky. Hoping to sleep pretty soon. I’m looking forward to seeing some relatives tomorrow even if it’s from a distance. I miss them all so much! ❤️

Hope everyone had a great Saturday. Take good care!

Sweet dreams.

Day 28.

Uke practice! I didn’t fall asleep until late because I really just wanted to play already. It’s so much fun. I have learned a few chords and the finger exercises are helping me tremendously. I use the Fender Play app which is free for 3 months. And so many helpful videos on YouTube! 🙂

Cheeseburgers for lunch! Always delicious. My drink was sparkling strawberry water + black currant Ribena. Yay!!

I took a nap. And I just woke up. 😱 Might practice some more. I’m trying to learn I’m Yours, one of my favorite songs.

I’m also watching Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist at night. It’s a good show. Check it out on Hulu.

That was my day. Hope your Thursday went well!

Good night.

Day 25.

Lots of sleep. I watched Kim’s Convenience. I’m in the middle of s4. So good!

I’m planning to watch Isn’t It Romantic. The movie was recommended by my sister. She said it was really good. Rebel Wilson is funny too.

I’ll be much more productive when my uke arrives. Just a few more days! I’m super excited.

Anyway, hope y’all had a nice Monday. Good night! ❤️

Day 19.

Photo credit goes to the owner. I believe this is from the Quintanilla Family.

We made it to the end of the month! ☺️ March seemed like an eternity. Shelter in place for the Bay Area has been extended to May 3rd. I believe we’re flattening the curve. Good job, Bay Area! ❤️

Today marks the 25th Anniversary of Selena Quintanilla-Perez’s untimely passing. Growing up we went to the local taqueria with the family. Her songs were always playing on the jukebox. That’s my earliest memory of her. Bianca and I were obsessed with her music. We still are to this day. So much talent, beauty, and grace. Gone too soon. RIP Selena. 💜

RIP Nip. Gone, but never forgotten. I’ve listened to both artists simultaneously today. Thank you for sharing your artistry with the world.

I’d like to take a moment to think of my trans brothers and sisters. I’m in solidarity with you today during International Transgender Day of Visibility. Sending love and light. 💕

I’ve been so tired today. I slept a lot again. I did get the chance to watch Selena Live! The Last Concert on YouTube. So much stage presence.

I finished the Bridget Jones series. Loved the films. I want to read the books. I’m now watching Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. It’s pretty good.

My new shampoo and conditioner were delivered too. Excited to try it. That was my Tuesday.

Good night.
