Day 269.

Happy Sunday! It’s a new week and it’s already quite interesting. I’m anticipating news. As of now, I’m on standby.

I wasn’t able to fall asleep. Had terrible insomnia so I watched Emmymade’s videos. Super fun to watch! I slept in and didn’t get up until 1:30pm.

Animal Crossing update: I played early and bought my turnips! 🙂 I’m also buying toys for Christmas and crafted some things for a friend. I just realized I didn’t save a lot of mushrooms. I missed out. Oh well! I’m looking forward to the Christmas and winter DIYs.

I didn’t get to practice driving today. I didn’t get up in time and I was feeling tired. I also got my COVID results. It’s negative! I’m doing my part to keep myself safe as well as others around me. 😷 Shelter in place is now in effect until January 4th. We can do this!!! 🧡

I watched football all afternoon. Brunch was also tasty. We finally got to cook longanisa!!! So good. 😋

I had a pretty interesting dinner. I finally tried the kimchi we bought a few weeks ago. Super tasty! I’ll have to buy it again.

It was a mellow day for me. Glad I was able to take it easy. Hope y’all had a nice one! Take care.

Good night.

Day 262.

Happy Sunday! My holiday break is officially over. Tears! But that’s okay. There’s so much to look forward to in the next few weeks. I love Christmas! It’s an exciting time despite a tough year.

I finally got to practice driving! I was tired when I woke up, but I decided to do it. If I don’t practice, I’ll never gain confidence. It went well! I even practiced some parallel parking. Woo!! I’ll improve. I know I can. 🙂

My treat for the day was ordering my favorite dessert! It’s always delicious. I really love hojicha. 🧡 I also got to try Fatburger. I watched the Niners game in its entirety today. Great team win! We needed it. Glad to have Mostert, Samuel, and Sherman back!!! ❤️💛

Animal Crossing update: I got my turnips! Woo. And my friend Amy visited my island. Everything is a WIP. Like I said – I’m revamping for all the holiday stuff. Can’t wait!!

I took a much needed nap after my very eventful day. I plan on studying again this week. I’ve been so focused on work that I haven’t focused on my online class. I hope to complete my module this week.

Lastly, it’s a scary time in the SF Bay Area. California as a whole. Please continue doing your part during the pandemic! It’s important to keep your distance. Be safe!!! 😷

Take care and good night!

Day 248.

Happy Sunday! Where did the weekend go? It’s a new week and I hope to accomplish as much as I can. But it’s important to take breaks. I opt for naps! 😴

We got our Asian groceries delivered to us today. I placed the order on Friday. Super legit! I’m happy with the service. COVID cases are surging in California and parts of the Bay Area. Please continue to wear a mask, social distance, and wash your hands! 😷 It’s getting real. 😱😭

I’m currently listening to Christmas music. I started in the summer and now I’m back to looping it. So great! I’m also in the middle of holiday shopping online. Trying to find practical gifts for family, friends, and coworkers. 🎅🏼

Animal Crossing update: Cleaned up a bit. Put a lot of things in storage. I’m also redoing the tree layout on Mango. I’ve also trashed some flowers. There’s too many! 🙃

Tuesday is giving me anxiety. But I’ll get through it. I’ve got calls to make tomorrow before work. I hope we can settle the bill. Eep! I need my new night guard.

Niners lost in New Orleans. 💔 Still sticking with them. It’s forever!!! ❤️💛

Off to play Animal Crossing!! 💫 Take care.

Good night.

Day 238.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend. Can’t wait. 💕

Work was mellow. A lot of repetition with wearing masks and keep them on! I don’t get a mask break during work tbh. It’s harder for kids, but it’s a must.

I had dinner waiting for me when I got back. So good! Spaghetti and meatballs with white sauce & garlic bread.

I’m pretty tired today. Woke up at 10am. I got a decent night’s sleep. Played some Animal Crossing again before getting ready for the day.

Niners didn’t do so well tonight. Ouch. So many injuries! Still cheering for them. Always. ❤️💛

Might start Schitt’s Creek tonight. If not maybe tomorrow.

Still watching election results and keeping track of the count on social media especially Twitter! The anxiety and nerves. Must take deep breaths.

Well, I’m done for the night. Take care!

Good night.

Day 234.

[Sunday, November 1, 2020]

Happy Sunday! I slept in. I ate a lot of candy.

Watched the Niners game. We didn’t do so well. 😬😭 We’re now 4-4. ❤️💛

Animal Crossing update: Mushrooms are now growing on Mango. I miss the Halloween festivities already, but I’m ready for Christmas & the holiday season! 🎄

It’s a new week! There’s a lot of anxiety and uncertainty. Election Day is almost here. Make sure to vote!!!

I also got to study for a bit and did a load of laundry. Weekend has been successful! Today is also the 10th anniversary of the 2010 World Series. Giants!!! 🖤🧡🖤🧡

Good night and take care!

Day 230.

I’m pretty tired today. I played badminton, basketball, and football at work. I’ve gotta work on my spiral! I forgot how fun badminton was. 🙂

I’m dealing with a lot of other stuff at the moment. I’m looking forward to the weekend – candy, junk food, Halloween, and the time change. Spooky! 👻

Animal Crossing update: Redd’s in town. Bought a painting to display at home. Woo! Finalizing my Halloween costume. I might just be a bunny or something.

I’ll just be focusing on football at the moment. Really glad that baseball is over and done with. Hopefully the Giants sign some key players. Rebuilding mode is tough, but I’m sticking with them! 🖤🧡

Just finished watching Holidate. I enjoyed it! Wish we could go back to the days of going to the mall, hanging out, going on dates, and without a mask. Sigh. 😢 Continue doing your part, please! Cases are rising again. It’s really disheartening.

Two more days of work. Friday should be interesting! 🙃

Good night.

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 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 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.
