Day 220.

Happy Sunday! 😎 I stayed up watching Ever After. It’s been a while. Great movie.

Niners win!!! ❤️💛 Tony Dungy, you’re the man for picking us to get the W. 🙂 Jimmy was back in his usual form. Everyone did awesome!!

All I have to say about baseball is Go Rays! 😄

It’s a new week and I’m still adjusting. I’ve also got a dentist appointment on Thursday. The good news is I’m off on Friday. Yay!!! Breathe. I can do this.

Animal Crossing update: I got my turnips at 6am. Lol. And then I fell asleep. My island is alright. Still putting up Halloween decor.

That was my Sunday. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 219.

Happy Saturday! 💜

Yesterday wore me out. My entire body was sore. I’m officially back at work! I fell asleep almost instantaneously. Got about 10 hours. I did nap in the middle of the day. Much needed.

It was another warm day in the city. I spent it indoors. We ordered boba milk tea and slush to keep cool. 🥵

The NLCS is tied up. I hope the Braves show up tomorrow. Yeesh. The Rays won tonight! I’m excited for them. Congrats!!!

Let me express my love for Sanrio again. They’re the best! 💗

I was proactive yesterday and today to find a driving instructor. I’m proud to report that I’ve signed up for two lessons in November. I’m looking forward to conquering my fear and anxiety behind the wheel. Woo! I want my independence. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the driving school I found.

Animal Crossing update: I’m trying to clean up my flowers. Not sure what to do with them. Lol. I gave up halfway. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Planning to watch a movie tonight. Not sure what.

Hope y’all had a nice Saturday! 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 217.

Happy Thursday! 🧡

Wishing my sister a very Happy 25th Birthday!!!! Where did the years go? It was a day well spent. We watched Beauty and the Beast, drank white claws, ate gummy candy, popcorn, and chips. Perfect way to start the day and then we went to sleep.

I slept in and didn’t get up until 1:45pm. It was all good timing since I was waiting for a call. Afterwards, I played more Animal Crossing. Officially at 280 hours! I’ll be racking up more hours this weekend. Woo!

Back to work for me tomorrow. I also have an appointment in the morning. My routine is back!

Enjoyed the NLCS tonight. 😎 The ALCS was mehhh. Come on, Rays!

Highlight of the day was visiting our family. It was a quick visit, but it’s always nice to see them especially our Lola. We miss her! She’s doing well. ❤️

That was my Thursday. I’ll be winding down shortly. I’m super tired now. Take care!

Good night.

Day 216.

Happy Wednesday! My day was super chill. I didn’t do much other than take a call from my boss to touch base for my first day this Friday! He’ll walk me through it. I’m still anxious, but excited.

I took a nap. Had to after seeing the score. The NLCS and ALCS weren’t so good today. 😒 Come on, Braves! Rays too. Let’s goooo!!!

I commented on Ivan Hall’s IG. I’m rooting for him! I usually don’t watch The Bachelorette or the Bachelor, but I might have to for this cycle. 🇵🇭❤️

Animal Crossing update: Redd stopped by today. Bought another painting! I talked to all of my villagers today. I made the rounds. I got some new DIY recipes too.

Tried my bow bands on. It suits my new cut! I love wearing them even if it is just at home.

I was supposed to study tonight, but I might just save it for tomorrow. But it’ll be busy since it’s our sister’s birthday!!! 💗

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

Good night.

Day 215.

Happy Tuesday! 😎

I’ve been so tired today. I fought off my nap. I decided to tune in and watch both the NLCS and ALCS. The teams I’m rooting for won tonight! 🙏🏼 YAAASSS! Former Giants on the Braves and I really like Tampa Bay.

Dinner was so good tonight. We had Chicken Alfredo and garlic bread. I helped with dinner yesterday so I got to chill out. Snickers ice cream bars are the best. It’s been my fave since I was a kid. ❤️

Animal Crossing update: my island is doing okay. I’m trying to log 280 hours. Still working on it. It was a mellow day. Nothing too exciting. I’m waiting for Redd to stop by again.

It was pretty warm today. It’ll be nice again for a few more days. The nights are getting colder. I welcome Fall with open arms! I love beanies and scarves.

Hard to believe I’ll be back at work on Friday! Touching base with the boss tomorrow morning. Still a little anxious, but I’ll be okay. Must practice driving. Might have to rely on rides from family for the next week or two.

I already miss basketball. Baseball is winding down. I hope the Niners do better! I know they can.

That was my Tuesday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 214.

Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day! Always in solidarity. I am on Ohlone land. ❤️

I stayed up to watch A Walk to Remember. It’s one of our favorite movies. I love Mandy Moore and Shane West! The soundtrack is also really beautiful. I cried again. 😭

Today was a big day for me. I finally got my hair cut!! It’s been a year and almost two months since I set foot in a salon. I feel so much lighter and fresh. It’s great! Now it’ll dry faster, no tangles, and easy maintenance. 🙂 I wore double masks, took my temperature, and signed off on a waiver. They also took my temperature again at the salon. Lots of social distancing too. Proud of the SF Bay Area for doing their part to keep everyone healthy and safe.

When I got home, I took a nap. I fell asleep for about 1.5 hours. Afterwards, I helped Mom with dinner. I was responsible for the garlic mashed potatoes, cooking rice, and steaming the asparagus. I overdid that part. Whoops! 😬 Everything was delicious nonetheless. I also had my hojicha latte. SO GOOD!!

I caught a bit of the ALCS and the NLCS. Exciting!! Postseason baseball is the best. Happy to see a lot of familiar faces. PABLOOO!!!

Animal Crossing update: I’m trying to log more hours. I’m at 275+ hours. Hoping to get to 285 soon. My island is doing okay. I decided to remodel my front exterior. It’s perfect now. The previous combo didn’t work for me.

That was my Monday. I’m planning on studying a bit. It’s a big week for me! So much to celebrate and reflect on. I’m just filled with a lot of gratitude. 💕

Good night.

Day 207.

Happy Monday!

Today is always a heavy day. 2011 was such a sad year. I still grieve. I wish I had more time with our Lola. I can’t believe it’s been 9 years since her passing. We miss you and we love you. ❤️

My time off is winding down. I need to get back to routine! And I’ll be driving this time around. I’ve gotta practice and always remain confident. I know I can!!!!

Animal Crossing update: Al is finally moving out! He’s been on my island since April. Happy trails to him! I’m excited to see which new villager will be moving in. I got more DIY recipes for Halloween. All my pumpkins have grown! Ready to decorate some more for Halloween. 👻

I’ve got my dermatology appointment tomorrow. I hope something can be done about my skin tags. Freeze them and then snip it off please!! I’m so self-conscious. 🥴

Watched the ALDS. Rooting for Oakland. They’re the only Bay Area reps left. Boo Houston! 😒 And I’m cheering hard for SD!!

I’m hoping to sleep soon. I was supposed to do my laundry, but I can save it for tomorrow. It’s getting colder in the city. I miss the summer!

Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 203.

I dealt with a lot of pain today. I was sleepy and fatigued for most of my day. I’m boring. 😂

Good news: I got my sunnies face the perfector stick! I can’t wait to try it. Maybe tomorrow? You can blur your skin and add balm. The dewy look.

Animal Crossing update: It’s October! Spooky season is here. I have a mini pumpkin patch on my island. Hopefully the pumpkins grow in a few days. Can’t wait to decorate everything orange and black. 🎃 Bud is gone and Vivian moves in tomorrow.

I watched postseason baseball today. I caught the A’s and the Padres. Everyone except our rivals. Go teams! 😎

I had a very productive session with my therapist today. I was almost on the verge of tears, but I stopped myself. I am valid. I am worthy. I will not dwell on the past. I tried. Now it’s time to move on. 💪🏼 I can!

Today is also the start of Lupus Awareness Month! Sarah used to always spread visibility and awareness. We’ll continue the story. We miss her so much. 💜

I’ve got my flu shot appointment tomorrow. I’m so ready! The AQI is getting bad again. I hope it won’t take long. I’ll walk fast.

That was my Thursday. Hoping to do more this upcoming weekend! Take care, y’all.

Good night.
