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.

Day 206.

Happy Sunday! A new week is upon us. 🙂

My day was okay. I watched a lot of sports – football and the NBA Finals. Niners are 0-2 at home. We lost to the Eagles. WTH?!! Very happy for Miami. They’re trailing 2-1, but Jimmy Butler went off. I hope the next game is just as exciting.

Animal Crossing update: I slept in so I had to time travel to get turnips again. Today is also Goose’s Birthday! Good times.

Hoping for a better week. I know I’ve been saying I hope to be productive. And I will be! I must discipline myself.

Highlight of the day: Happy Lemon. This’ll be the last of my boba fix until the end of the year. I’ve ordered too much too often. 🍋

I’m super excited to see dermatology this Tuesday. I hope they can help me out ASAP!

Well, this is good night. Take care!

Day 185.

Football Sunday! It’s back. ❤️💛 The Niners struggled. It’s only one game. Adjustments will be made. Go Niners! 🙂

And the Giants were swept in SD. 😬 Hoping they pick themselves up. These upcoming games will be a challenge. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Anxiety has been up and down. Still haven’t replied. 🙃

I slept in. I washed the dishes. Ordered boba. I’m hungry again. Might eat a bit more before bed.

Animal Crossing update: Had to time travel again to buy my turnips. I bought 30 this time around. Hoping to make a nice profit this week. My island is still a mess. 😂

I’m going to play my uke. Eventually respond to this text and tidy up. It’s a new week! I’m feeling pretty good. 💜

Hoping my assignment gets approved for my class. I’ve been waiting to take the test, but it’s still locked. Ugh. I think I mentioned this in yesterday’s entry.

Have a great week, everyone! Take care.

Good night.

Day 184.

Happy Saturday! I slept in longer than usual. Insomnia. So I stayed up watching the Amanda Knox documentary. It was interesting, but I still have a bunch of questions.

Just finished my workout. 600 squats done for the week! Week 3 ✅ I’m staying consistent. Some days can be really hard, but I stay motivated. I can do anything! It’s all in the mind. Focus.

Animal Crossing update: I time traveled to buy this sweater dress from the Able Sisters. Lol. I also bought a climbing wall. Not sure where to put it on my island. Maybe near the playground? We’ll see. Still paying my loan off. I’m almost there.

I miss baseball. Giants are still postponed. But supposedly the first test that was taken yesterday was a false positive. So we’ll see. 🖤🧡

I ate some really good Chinese food today. Before that I was overthinking. My usual routine. Lol. 🙃 I was brave and sent a text. It’s been more than a week since we talked. Not sure where this is going. But I’m here for the ride. I need to give myself credit for being brave and talking to someone new. We just can’t meet in person and it sucks.

I’m trying to make progress with my class, but my assignment needs to be graded first. Argh! I just wanted to take the test and be done with it. Maybe Monday?

Hopefully I don’t sleep too late. Might practice driving tomorrow. Football is back. Exciting! I think it’ll be a go come game time. It all depends on the air quality. Go Niners! ❤️💛

Still figuring things out. I hope I can clean tomorrow. It’s been a while. Lol.

That was my Saturday. Hope y’all had a nice one!

Good night.

Day 157.

My sleep schedule was messed up. There was thunder and lightning! Throw in a very anxious dog and that equals insomnia. It was cool to see the lights in the sky. But the rumbling – not so much. I ended up sleeping in. I set an alarm, but I couldn’t even get up. I hope I get a better night’s sleep tonight.

I wanted to build something tonight, but it’s late and I’m pretty tired. Maybe the floor lamp? That’s fairly easy.

Highlight of my day: catching up with my coworkers! It’s been so long. It was nice to check in and see how everyone is doing. I miss them! ❤️

The Giants are a hot mess. We got swept! It pains me. Thankfully this season is short. Our bullpen is atrocious and our defense is nonexistent. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Back to fundamentals I guess. In happier sports news – Alex Smith has been cleared to play! I’m so happy for him. After his injury in 2018, he went through so much. When he was with the Niners I always cheered for him. I will continue to because he’s awesome!

Played Animal Crossing with Cristina. I gotta clean up my island. It’s a hot mess, but she got what she needed. Glad I could help.

Anyway, I’m hoping this week will be great! I’m anticipating for Wednesday, but breathe. I got this! 💁🏻‍♀️

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 155.

TGIF! So glad it’s the weekend. 🙂

It was so hot today. I think it hit 97 degrees in the city. I enjoy the rare hot day. It can just be overwhelming since a lot of older SF houses aren’t equipped with air conditioning.

I decided to get my walk in anyway despite the weather. All I need is 15-20 minutes.

We finally got my dresser in my room. It took a few days to build, but it looks great! I’ll be smart with how much to store. The drawers are too pretty. I’m planning to do more cleaning, organizing, and get a load of laundry done. So many moving pieces these next few weeks.

We had Shake Shack for dinner. So good! It’s definitely in my top 3. I didn’t get my usual so I went with the ShackBurger with cheese.

Animal Crossing update: I bought a new painting to add to my museum! And the last time I played today it was raining. I’ll play a bit before bed to do some maintenance.

I got some good news from my medical team. I just need to be super cautious and careful once we’re able to head back to work. I need eye protection. My glasses alone won’t be enough. I just want people to keep their distance and mask up. They also recommend surgical masks instead of a cloth one. I can definitely do that.

Giants lost a game they should’ve won. Yikes! I’ll always root for them. 🖤🧡 49ers: Kittle signed a 5 year extension. Wooooo! ❤️💛

Well, I’m pretty exhausted. I hope I can sleep well tonight. I might squeeze in a movie.

Have a great weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 42.

I was anxious before bed. So I woke up groggy and irritated. Lol. I mean I slept for 4 hours. 😬 I’m proud to say I didn’t nap today. Animal Crossing kept me busy for most of the day.

Lola (grandma) called us. It was nice to hear her voice. She’s doing well. I always pray for her. I miss her a lot! I haven’t seen her since the beginning of March for bday celebrations before the shelter in place. 😞

British snacks arrived today! It totally made my day. My extra order of French lavender hand sanitizer came in as well. Great package day! 🙂

I got to watch part of the 2020 NFL Draft! Exciting times. Welcome to the Niners, Javon Kinlaw & Brandon Aiyuk! ❤️💛

Practiced chucking some more. I think I’m getting the hang of it. I’m really focusing on my strumming. Learning the chords are simple in my case. I’m trying to find my rhythm. 🙃

Overall I had a nice Thursday. No complaints. Can’t believe it’s almost the weekend.

Well, good night!
