Day 213.

Happy Sunday! What a fun weekend. Today was the final day of the Pinayista Summit. I learned so much, caught up with friends, and met new faces. I’m so empowered and proud to be Pinay! I now know the history behind the word. My mind is blown.

The lightning talks were everything to me. I’m inspired and it’s leading me in the right direction of what I want to do creatively. I have so much to learn, but it’ll be worth it. Next on the list: learn about the pin process and read up on graphic design. 🙂 YAY!!!

Today is also my 13th Anniversary since my Pulmonary Hypertension diagnosis. I was 20 years old. It was a life-changing day, but I also consider it a blessing. I’m still thriving, hustling, and elevating myself despite the doubts and fear. I am powerful! That’s what this weekend taught me. My story matters and so does yours. 💜

In addition to my anniversary – it’s also #dayofthegirl, #internationaldayofthegirl, and #nationalcomingoutday. Sending LOVE to all! There’s so much to celebrate.

It wasn’t a good sports day for the SF Bay Area. YEESH! I caught some of the Niners game. What happened?!! I’m still sticking with them. They are FOREVER! ❤️

Congrats to the Lakers. For Kobe!

I gotta tidy up a bit before bed. Going to play a little Animal Crossing first. 😀 I hope y’all had a nice one. 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.

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 196.

Happy Thursday! 💗 I’m feeling okay today. Up and down really. We got to chat for a bit via text. It’s not so scary anymore.

My treat for the day: Matcha Cafe Maiko. I ordered the vanilla-matcha swirl topped with boba! So delicious. 😋

Watched the Giants game. Hoping they would’ve won, but they blew it. 💔 Idk about the postseason. We’ll see.

Animal Crossing update: Celeste stopped by! I got a new DIY recipe from her. Libra scales. So cool. I bought a cacao plant too. My island is still a mess. I’ll fix it when I make time.

Watched the Nuggets game. That was frustrating. 😔 They’re down 3-1. Hoping for a win the next time they play.

I put on some eye makeup today. The eyeshadow I’ve been waiting for was finally delivered. 👁 Love it!!

Lastly, I watched Cinderella, the 2015 version before bed. I really liked it! 🤍

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 191.

I’m in a weird state yet again. I’ve been feeling really tired too. I’m also overthinking. Sigh. 😞 My emotions and feelings are everywhere.

I plan on exercising to get rid of the negativity and anxiety.

I helped with dinner which is nice. I took a nap before helping. I think I need another nap.

Animal Crossing update: Caroline has officially moved out. Truffles will be settling in tomorrow. I’m always open to new villagers, but I get attached to the old ones.

Watched the Celtics and Heat play. Very good game. It’s going to be a series. Might even go 7?

The Giants lost again in Oakland. Sighhh. Postseason or not, they’ve played very well considering how unique 2020 has been.

Didn’t take any pictures so this entry is all text.

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

Good night.

Day 187.

Not a very Happy Tuesday for me. I dealt with a mosquito flying around in my room before bed. It was the most annoying thing ever! So I tried to fall asleep with my AirPods in my ears. It made me so anxious. I hope I can sleep better tonight.

I decided to clean the bathroom and the kitchen. Clean floors are happy floors! 🙂 I treated myself to a cup of ice cream afterwards. Hurrah!

Animal Crossing update: I’m ready to take money out of my savings account to pay for the rest of my loan. I need more home storage! Labelle stopped by today. The villager I want gone is still on my island. It’s getting old. Lol. I would like a new villager.

I missed out on some NBA games today since I took a nap after cleaning. The Nuggets advance after defeating the Clippers. 😱 The Heat beat the Celtics in Game 1 of the ECF.

The Giants are returning to SF to play the Mariners due to the terrible AQI in the PNW. Seattle will be the home team. This shall be interesting. I believe we have 12 games remaining. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Speaking of AQI, the skies were finally blue today. That may change leading up to the weekend, but I plan to take advantage of it until then. I’ve got a bunch of doctor’s appointments lined up for this week and into next.

I’ve gotta exercise and shower. Hoping to sleep better tonight as I mentioned earlier.

Text convos are something. Haven’t really checked my phone because of my anxiety. 🙃 And work stuff too. Eep.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 173.

Happy Tuesday! It’s officially September. 🍂

I had a very productive day. Although I was distracted with a lot of other noise. I eventually got everything done. I hope to be just as productive tomorrow. I took care of emails and finished another lesson for my TEFL course.

Before bed last night I watched a few episodes of Sister, Sister. One of my fave tv shows from childhood. 1. It’s a show about twins. 2. funny and amazing cast! 3. so many classic episodes. Check it out on Netflix if you’ve never seen it before! Mowry twins 💕

Animal Crossing update: It feels like Autumn! I mean it will be very soon, but AC is a little early. There are pine cones, acorns, and pumpkins. I love everything about the Fall! The color scheme is beautiful. There are new bugs and fish too. I’ll try to catch some more tomorrow. I’m excited! 😊

Caught Game 7 of the Utah-Denver series. Hard fought by both teams. Denver came out on top. I love the playoffs! And I miss the Warriors.

Giants won big tonight, 23-5, in Denver! It was nice to see a bunch of runs. Dickerson had himself a night! 😎🖤🧡 Keep going, fellas. Go Giants!

I also got to exercise. It’s week 2 of the 600 squat challenge. I’m on day 2 = 200 squats. 4 more days! I always feel accomplished when I get it done. It’s always hard in the beginning, but it gets easier towards the end. Go me! 💪🏼

Still thinking about a lot of things. I’m just trying to breathe. It helps with my anxiety. Music always helps too. I had to play my uke earlier to help me keep calm.

I’m hoping to clean and organize some more tomorrow. Just gotta plan the day out better. I can do this!

Lastly, my leggings from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale arrived today. Hoping to break them in soon. I’ve worn lipstick for the last 2 days. Instant mood booster!💄

Take care, y’all!

Good night.

Day 164.

Happy Sunday! ❤️

I spent the day cleaning and organizing. I went ham for about 8 hours with some breaks in between. Had to trash and shred old papers. Tomorrow I’ll be organizing some more. I’ll have to start a donation pile.

I’m currently exercising as I type this. I’m using a resistance band for my legs. The burn!

Highlights of my day: putting up the artwork I’ve collected over the years. I finally played Britney’s debut album on vinyl. Sounds amazing! It was the first album I bought with my own money at Costco back in the day. I’m dating myself! Lol. The Aces and Little Mix have also been on repeat. Soundtracks of my current mood.

I’ve been in my head the last few days. It tends to happen a lot, but I’m aware that it’s because of my anxiety. I’m doing alright. Staying beautiful and confident through the struggle.

The Giants are streaking! Yayyy!!! But today was sad since we had to say farewell to Hunter Pence again. He’s a treasure in SF! I miss him a lot already. He’s contributed so much in the past. It’s hard to see him go, but it’s part of the business. Forever Giant. 🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: I played early to buy my turnips and then I checked in about a half hour ago to stare at the fireworks. Lol. I’ve been distracted by other things. 🙃

Lastly, Happy Birthday to Kobe! You are missed. 💜

Hope y’all had a nice weekend. Have a kick ass week! Take care.

Good night.

Day 142.

Dating apps haven’t been treating me well. I really don’t like it when people are rude! Pet peeve. Moving on.

Anyway, it was a pretty chill day for me. I slept in for a bit and decided to get started on lunch: oven baked bacon mac & cheese. This was a different recipe. The bacon was also frozen and I was too impatient to fry it on the stovetop. I shoulda just fried it instead of opting for the oven. Lesson learned. It turned out okay. Pretty delicious, but was definitely missing the crisp factor.

I watched some NBA games on tv and listened to the Giants game on the radio for a few innings. I was feeling a little under the weather. It might’ve been the bacon. So I took a nap. It helped! Giants with the W!!! Solano is rolling.

Now I’m a bit more awake. Just snacked on some chips and chocolate. Made another plate of garlic mashed potatoes and mac & cheese.

Animal Crossing update: It was a typical day on my island. The villagers are super excited about the fireworks tomorrow. I am too! Should be a lot of fun.

I’m hoping to be more productive tomorrow. I’d like to start my class soon. I’m also brainstorming for my potential courses. Would also like to visit our grandma and say hello from afar. We miss her! ❤️

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

Good night.
