Day 231.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend. I can’t wait. The last few days have been tough. I just want all the candy right now. But I’ll be patient and wait for Saturday.

Work went well. Just had two students to supervise. As I’m adjusting to my ever evolving schedule, I’m getting the hang of it! The music helps in between breakout times.

Spam, eggs, and garlic rice for dinner. Hurrah! It’s been a while. Comfort food is the best.

I watched Dateline tonight. It was a really good episode. Now I’m watching NHK World Japan. My dream vacation! Someday I’ll get there. Maybe in a year or two.🤞🏼

Animal Crossing update: Halloween! I’ll tidy up the beach and some of the flowers tomorrow. I’m lacking energy at the moment.

Planning to sleep soon. Hope y’all had a nice one! Take care.

Good night.

Day 225.

TGIF!!! It’s been a long week for me, so I’m really glad it’s the weekend.

I got to sleep in for a bit. Then I had my appointment with my therapist. It was nice to chat and catch up. Afterwards, I was free the rest of the day.

Highlight of the day: Boba Guys! Our cousin is back in town and he usually makes the trip. He was kind enough to pick up our orders. I tried the strawberry matcha latte with boba for the first time. It’s delicious! I’ll definitely be ordering it again.

Animal Crossing update: Tex has packed up and is leaving tomorrow. I’m hoping to find a new villager soon. All the best, Tex! He only stayed on the island for about three weeks.

Game 3 of the World Series was meh. Whatever happens, happens. Giants fan forever! 🖤🧡🖤🧡

I’m in the middle of watching A Princess for Christmas. It’s a really nice holiday movie. I watched Charming Christmas in the afternoon. The cheese is great. 😂🎄

Happy weekend to all! Take care.

Good night.

Day 223.

Happy Wednesday! 😄

It was a much slower day for me. I like taking my time in the morning. Everything went well today. And for the most part, the students don’t give me a difficult time. I’ve noticed that everyone has to be louder while wearing a mask. I only wear my face shield indoors. It’s nice being able to take it off when I’m outdoors.

My aunt gave me a ride home again so that’s always nice. I can’t rely on ride shares or public transit this year. My driving lesson will be here soon enough. I’m actually pretty juiced.

I ate dinner early. I was able to take home a burger from work. It was good! And that’s the nice thing about lunch – everything is in a takeout box.

I watched Game 2 of the World Series. I was a bit superstitious at first, but we eventually tuned in once my brother got home from work. The Rays looked dominant. Very different vibe from Game 1. Snell and Lowe stood out to me. Go Rays! ✨

Animal Crossing update: someone was at the campsite. I’ve passed on inviting them to Mango. I might reconsider. My island needs work, but I haven’t had much time.

We also watched Unsolved Mysteries. The story was based in Oslo, Norway. I’m still spooked! 😱👻 But it was such a fascinating story.

Early day for me tomorrow, so I’ll be sleeping soon. I’m ready for the dentist again! Bring it.

Good night and take care!

Day 222.

How is it already Tuesday?! 🙃 I had the day off and that’s only because I didn’t have a student on my roster. Back to work tomorrow.

I’m so sleepy right now. I’m also a little anxious because of some health stuff. 😢 I hope I’ll be okay. I took a nap earlier, but I’m planning to sleep soon.

I stayed up watching Unsolved Mysteries s2 and Just Like Heaven on demand. UM was so eerie. It was about a woman in Oslo, Norway. Check it out if you’re into mystery and crime. I was spooked after watching. I watched another epi in the afternoon with my sisters. That one was super interesting too. The story took place in Michigan.

Animal Crossing update: I was supposed to sell some turnips, but I forgot. Flick is visiting.

I’ve got two more days of work left. I also have my dental appointment on Thursday. Busy week is almost over. I can get through this.

I’ll mention the World Series. The Rays weren’t too hot. It’s only Game 1. I hope the rest of the series picks up. But for now I want them to tie it. Go Rays!

Take care, everyone!

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 218.

TGIF! My day was super busy and I’m not sure if I completed everything that my doctors requested. 😬 I was late and they almost didn’t take me. I hate being tardy. 😱 If I have to go back, I’ll schedule another appointment.

It was an odd day. I didn’t sleep very well because I was anxious for my first day back at work. It went well btw! Everything is different, but we gotta adapt. I’m sure I’ll have it down by next week. Wearing masks and a face shield is a trip, but it’s so important. Especially in my case! 😷

Thankful I got a ride to and from work today. I’m trying to figure out my driving schedule and getting a few lessons in to regain my confidence. The accident in 2018 made me more scared to be behind the wheel.

Animal Crossing update: Wart Jr. is moving in and Kidd has moved out. I love welcoming new villagers! 🙂 Hoping to fix up my island this weekend.

I don’t even want to talk about baseball right now. The teams I’m cheering for weren’t clutch. Ugh! Hopefully it’s a better day tomorrow! 🖤🧡

I’m glad it’s the weekend. I can recharge! I’m looking forward to sleeping in. 😄

That was my Friday. It was nice to see familiar faces again. Take care!

Good night.

Day 209.

It’s Wednesday! We’ve made it to the middle of the week. 💗

Today was our Tito Rino’s funeral. I wish I could’ve been there, but it’s still too risky. I said a prayer for him. He’s truly missed. 🤍 Family over everything. It’s important to keep in touch with everyone on the regular especially during the pandemic and once life normalizes again.

I had to get up early to watch the dogs. They’re such a handful. Rascals! I had coffee and snacks to keep me going for a few hours. I played Animal Crossing to pass the time. Tex is moving in. Kinda wish I would’ve found my own villager, but that’s fine. I know for next time to seek a new one out ASAP.

I was able to clean, apply Vaseline, and put a new bandage on my skin – the one near my eye and the one near my armpit. Must take care of it daily.

Did a load of laundry after my shower. I was so productive today! Planning to clean tomorrow.

Caught part of the VP debate. I didn’t watch all of it. Progress needs to be made again in our country. Protect womyn and their rights! Protect those with underlying conditions! Let’s have a conversation about racial & social justice, climate change, global warming, and the importance of science. We need strong leaders! BIDEN HARRIS 2020! 💙

Watched Postseason baseball. Disappointed that the Padres didn’t tie the series versus LA. 😒 They gotta win the next one to stay afloat in the series. I hope they do. BEAT LA!!!! 🖤🧡

Still dealing with anxiety and being sad. I’ll make it! I know I will. My feelings are valid. Suppressing them won’t help me. Acceptance. Still staying away from a certain dating app. Once I’m brave again – I’ll return.

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 208.

Happy Tuesday! 💕

It was a day for me. I didn’t sleep very well because I was dealing with anxiety. I always get pretty anxious for my doctor’s appointments. This one was a bit different since it’s the dermatologist! I rarely go.

Fast forward to 9:45am. We were running a bit late, but I got there in time. Thankful that my aunt can provide me with rides. Anyway, I arrive and there are a few people ahead of me. Once I check in, the receptionist leads me to the back room. This is where the magic happens!

I’ve dealt with skin tags for the last few years. Both were removed today! Huzzah!!! I hope my insurance processes it because 1. They were painful and 2. absolutely necessary for my own well-being since one of them was close to my left eye. I’m wearing a bandage there right now. I’m unable to get it wet for the next 24 hours. I must clean and dry it for the next 2-3 weeks! The doctors were really nice too. Thanks for your help.

Once I got home, I took a very long nap. The lidocaine wore off and I could feel the sting. I didn’t get up until 5ish in the afternoon.

I ate my lunch and then I tuned in online for the livestream of my uncle’s services. His passing was untimely. Makes me sad. Given that we’re still in the middle of the pandemic, I’m unable to attend his funeral. I’ve been praying for him. RIP Tito Rino. 🤍

Had In-N-Out for dinner. Decided to wash the dishes too since I wasn’t super productive today. I plan on studying tomorrow and finally get to my laundry.

I’m still dealing with my emotions and feelings. It’s a rough patch. Ugh! But I’ll make it. I’m strong!! 💜

Lastly, my Animal Crossing update. Must look for a new villager. Al has left my island. More Halloween decor is going up this week! Yeah!!

Take care, everyone!

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 204.

Where did the week go?! Happy Friday! 💜

I tried to sleep early last night and it didn’t work out for me since I decided to watch Ready or Not. I really liked it. Plot twists everywhere! Definitely a guessing game.

I woke up in time, but it was hard. I had to get ready for my flu shot appointment. I get it every year. Super important for my health! It was quite busy, but the wait wasn’t long. Afterwards, we picked up lunch at our local taqueria. I went with a carne asada burrito. It’s been a while. 😋 Chips and salsa were so good too.

I did a bit of chores and then I decided to take a nap. I was super tired. Fell asleep for a few hours. I’m pretty energetic now. Might watch another movie tonight.

Animal Crossing update: Vivian is finally moved in! Super exciting. I watered my pumpkins. I also caught another scorpion. My count is 2! They’re so sneaky.

I want to try on some makeup. It’s the only time to freely wear it at home. I love lipstick, eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush, and highlight! 💕 No one will ever see my lipstick again until we’re mask free. 😷

Planning to clean and organize tomorrow. I hope to practice driving for a bit this weekend. I go back to work in TWO WEEKS! I’m a little anxious, but I think I’ll be okay. Super important to be socially distant from everyone, especially adults. I’m double masking and putting on the face shield.

We watched a bit of Meet the Parents. Haven’t seen it in a while. I forgot how funny it was. Hehe.

Take care and happy weekend to all!

Good night.
