Day 320.

It’s Tuesday! 🙃 I’m close to blogging for a year. My objective was to blog during lockdown so I can look back during this unprecedented time and here we are. 320 days later and progress has been made, but we’re still in the middle of it.

Some days are good. Some days are terrible. And some days are mixed. I’m going through it and it’s okay to acknowledge my emotions and feelings. I have been feeling sad as of late. A lot of it stems from not seeing family and friends often and losing friendships. I’ve accepted that especially! People come and go. I feel like I’m fighting to keep people in my life that aren’t worthy. Effort must be made on both ends and if that doesn’t happen, the relationship doesn’t survive. 😭 I share responsibility in that. Some friendships have expiration dates. It’s time to move on eventually.

  • Just dealing with a lot of life stuff. My main focus right now is my health – all aspects of it!! I hope I can tackle some of my goals. Let’s do this!!
  • Work went well. Tuesdays are my short days. I got home in time before the storm.
  • I’ve been really lazy and 🥶
  • My tamagotchi traveled to London again and I’ve hatched a new one. It’s so smol. Hoping to get another bow this time around.
  • It’s been a year since Kobe’s passing. RIP to him, Gianna, John, Keri, and Alyssa Altobelli, Sarah and Payton Chester, Christina Mauser, and Ara Zobayan. 🤍
  • Trying to survive the week.
  • No players were inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. I’m 😱
  • I really want to make a fruit smoothie.
  • Animal Crossing and the Sanrio collab was released today! I want those amiibo cards. Dropping in March. It’ll most likely sell out. I’m ready.
  • Taking deep breaths as of late has helped.
  • Reading too! I can’t believe January is almost over. I’m ready for the best month ever. February rules!! 💜

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 317.

Happy Saturday! 💜

I’m doing my best to focus on my health holistically. What I miss most: sleeping with our family dog. She can sit with me and whatnot, but I need the bed to myself. I’m hoping it’ll help with my healing.

  • I got to sleep in. Yay!!!
  • Ted’s for lunch. One of the top places to get sandwiches in SF!!
  • I just mellowed out today. Highlight of my Saturday: watching the Dubs game. Curry is now the #2 career 3pt shooter in the NBA. I think he can catch Ray Allen. Go Steph!!!
  • Animal Crossing update: Baabara has officially moved in! But I miss Pate. I’m thinking of starting anew. It’s a lot of work resetting though.
  • My sweet hots arrived in the mail today! Sweet and spicy almonds made in San Luis Obispo. I tried them years ago and now I’m hooked.
  • I was supposed to study and continue with my class, but I’m too tired. I’ll also clean and do laundry tomorrow hopefully.
  • Looking forward to football tomorrow. I’m rooting for Tampa Bay and Buffalo! I have nothing against Green Bay. It’s cool to see 3 Bay Area guys still going strong in the playoffs.
  • RIP Larry King. ❤️
  • Lastly, I tried my new China Rain rollerball. Still smells the same! Love it.

Hope y’all had a nice one! Take care and be safe.

Good night.

Happy Wednesday and Happy Inauguration Day! I woke up in time to watch everything live. I’m a bit tired now, but it was worth it. We have hope again! It was a beautiful day. To President Biden and Madam Vice President Harris! Let’s get to work. 💙🇺🇸💙

  • Early mornings are great! I think I need to retrain myself to be a morning person again.

TGIF!!! I’m so happy for the long weekend. I’ve got a list of things to take care of and I intend to complete all tasks.

  • Days off are thee best!! 🙂
  • I had my video visit with my pulmonologist in the morning. Things are stable. I’ve been prescribed an inhaler. Hopefully it helps me out.

  • Lunch was good. I had a bowl from Nijiya. Happy we have Japanese snacks at home again!
  • I took a nap afterwards. I was pretty tired.

Hope everyone had a good day. Take care!
