Update.

Hello! It’s been a few weeks and I come with an update.

I’ve attended a few events: Buster Posey Day at the yard, my first concert since 2019, and celebrated Mother’s Day with the fam. I also just signed papers to be a barista/cashier again! I hope it goes well.🤞

I had my interview for the mochi film I decided to help with and l was a mess. I probably should’ve prepared more beforehand and I was nervous! But Kristine was very patient with me. I hope I didn’t embarrass myself. 😬 I overthink a lot. Wahhh!

I need to finish my cert for my TEFL. I’ve put it off for so long. I’m almost there! I need to complete it before the end of June. I’m a little stressed since I start training for my new gig next week. Also nervous for that.

I saw Paul McCartney on Sunday! It was amazing. I’ve seen both living Beatles. George was my favorite. RIP to him and John. Truly missed! 🤍

Getting sleepy. My nap threw me off. And omg the Philippine election. Don’t even get me started! It’s upsetting to me as a Filipino American. I want real leadership to steer the country in the right direction. I want progress! I wasn’t born there, but I’m still very connected to the birthplace of my parents and ancestors. LABAN 🇵🇭💗

There’s a lot to do and I’m feeling overwhelmed sometimes. Taking it a day at a time! Wishing you all well. Until next time.

A busy 🐝!

Hello! It’s been a while. Just wanted to type up an update. 🙂 I hope everyone is doing well! The NBA playoffs have started, baseball is back (Go Giants! 🖤🧡), and spring is here!!! ☀️ Love it.

I attended the NCCBF! 🌸 Both weekends. First weekend was to visit our cousin and his partner. She’s running her own small biz! Good times. The second weekend we lined up early for teriburgers! Delicious. Wish we bought more. 😋 Also got to buy Japanese snacks, mochi, and some other goodies. Japantown is one of my fave spots in the city!

A few days ago – we returned to Davis. It was for Dr. Fujimoto’s memorial. So many beautiful stories and memories were shared. I miss college! I was inspired again just being back. I want to do more!!! Aggies 🐴💙💛 We bought all of our favorite food, caught up with familiar faces, and took some nice pics on campus. We bought some new UCD swag to wear and rep. We missed Picnic Day by 2 days! I ended up buying this year’s tee.

I’m in the middle of job hunting again. I’d like to have a summer job if I can find one. Looking for a stable position that also works with my own schedule + energy levels. Being a lupus patient can be a lot, but it’s important to listen to your body! Rest is essential. In my case, I always nap. 💜 Lupus Awareness Month is coming up. I love sharing facts and information!!

I’m playing a lot of Pocket Camp! It’s fun. Too many Animal Crossing games to choose from.

Lots of books on my reading list! I also have tv shows and movies I’ve been meaning to watch. Balance is so important right now! I’m also trying to exercise more. Time management. 😮‍💨

Wishing you all a great week! 💗

Good night.

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city.

Thank you, Petula Clark! Yesterday was a stroll down memory lane. Lots of errands and we ended up downtown. I was downtown a lot pre-Covid. I’m rarely in the area now. It’s different, but in a sense the same.

Blondie’s is back so we decided to buy pizza! We also went to Wetzel’s and KB tarts. 😋 Many eateries we used to go to are now gone such as Beard Papa’s, Loving Hut, and Häagen-Dazs. It was nice to be back! I think the soul of SF is returning. It’ll definitely take work, but it’s progress.

My bracket is officially done. Gonzaga let me down! 😩 But I had a feeling they wouldn’t do well. And I was right. So I finish 2nd this year. My women’s bracket is still going strong, so I might be able to pull out a win. It’s early, but there’s a chance!! Here’s hoping I do better in 2023.

Bridgerton is officially back! I’ll be watching an epi tonight. Yay!!!

Doing my best to take care of myself holistically. Happy to report that I’ve been walking more. It’s tiring, but absolutely necessary for my health. I’m also cleaning up my diet.

Opening Day is two weeks away!!! Can’t wait. I love baseball!! ⚾️

Well, time for Netflix. Woo!

Good night.

So much deliciousness.

The fam and I have been exploring some new spots for SF eats. 😋 We found a new pizza place! It’s called Joyride and it’s amazing. I loved the pepperoni and the Bianca. The fig jam!! 🤩

I will most definitely be back. 😌 Pizza rules!!!

Spring Training is in full swing! So excited because baseball back. I’m also watching March Madness. So many upsets. Wild! There will be 2 games played at Chase Center. I wanted to go, but unfortunately it’s too expensive. 😞

It’s a new week and Pisces season is officially over. 😭 Here’s to next year!

I’m still listening to a lot of *NSync and my fave pop music from the nineties. I miss it! I’ve been very nostalgic.

Wishing you all a great week! Take care. 😷🧡

Good night.

DST is here!

I’m adjusting to the time change. I think I’ll be fine after a week. Feeling a little anxious right now, so I’m having trouble sleeping.

I hope it’ll be a great week for everyone!! There’s a lot going on in the sports world, so I’ve got my eyes on Twitter 24/7. Mainly my teams: Giants, Niners, and Warriors. Hoping the Giants sign a big bat. I think this is the week we say farewell to Jimmy G. I really wish we won with him at QB. 😭 Dray, Klay, and Steph will be playing together again! It hasn’t happened since 2019. 😱 Time flies!!! My goodness.

Work will keep me busy for sure. Need to go on a shopping trip this week. I love food! I’m also exercising again. Walked yesterday and I’ll most likely do my resistance bands a few times a week. Woo! Holding myself accountable.

Covid. I’m still masking everywhere I go. I feel safer that way and I hope people will respect that. I also have chronic conditions and an immunocompromised family member. Back up! 😷 So many questions to ask my medical team. Travel is on there. If not this year, I’m hoping 2023 will be the year I’m back on a plane. I miss it!! ✈️

Still playing a lot of Animal Crossing New Leaf. 😊 Hoping turnip prices are better this week. Last week was atrocious.

Well, I’ll try to sleep soon. Wishing you all an amazing week! ❤️

Bye.

Day 342.

Happy Wednesday! In 23 days, it’ll be a year since lockdown started for me. Time flies! And here we are.

  • I had a fairly productive day. I finally washed my Animal Crossing beddings set! Just in time for my bday this weekend. 🤗
  • Very productive session with my therapist. It’s always nice to just talk it out.
  • I took a much needed nap. Yes!
  • Before bed last night, I watched Three Words to Forever. I love Filipino movies! It helps me practice and understand Tagalog. Subtitles FTW!
  • Some more of my birthday presents arrived today. Yay!!! I’ll wrap it up just so I can open something. 😂
  • It’s back to work next week, but I’m taking advantage of my time off.
  • Must study and make progress tomorrow! I can!!
  • Caught some of the Dubs game. W! And baseball is officially back. Spring training!! The Giants have a lot of work ahead of them. We won’t be contenders for the next few years.
  • Animal Crossing update: Gulliver is in town. I’m going to play a bit so I can get a souvenir in exchange from him. I’m still moving things around on my island. So much work! I guess a player is never really done. And Bob is moving out. I decided to let him go so he can explore!
  • Super juiced about the Mario update. AC x Mario!!! ❤️
  • That was my day. Very chill.

Hope y’all had a nice one! Take care.

Good night.

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 229.

It’s Tuesday. I can’t say happy at the moment. 😂 Baseball. World Series. Snell shouldn’t have been pulled. The rivalry is still very real. I congratulated my boss. And I won’t say much more. #BeatLA

Today was a short work day. It was nice. I did deal with a kindergartener’s meltdown. Everything went smoothly once his brother showed up. Thank you! He’s new to me and vice versa. It’ll be like this on Tuesdays. The rest of the week is pretty much the same. I also got to catch up with my coworker. I miss hanging out after work.

I’m not in the best mood. I’m dealing with some pain. 😫 I really wish it was Friday tomorrow. Four more days until Halloween weekend! And the time change. I’m looking forward to that. 🎃

Animal Crossing update: I must clean the clutter. Haven’t gotten around to doing it. Must finish decorating for Halloween.

That was my Tuesday. I might watch a movie tonight. Maybe another Christmas one?! And I don’t have a pic to feature on this post. Didn’t take any today.

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 55.

Happy 89th Birthday, Willie Mays! 🖤🧡 Birthday greetings to our Lola Onen too. We miss you. ❤️

I had a restful night’s sleep! It’s been so long since I could say that. I woke up at about 9am. And then I played Animal Crossing. 😊 Every morning is a little surprise when I start up the game. I love it!

I spent most of the day with the dogs and taking care of some errands at home. I measured a jacket that might be sold. Fingers crossed. I was also preparing myself for a study. I wanted to nap before it, but I did it afterwards instead. I think it went well.

I fell asleep for a few hours and I woke up at 9pm. Overall it was a good day. I had the rest of the taco meat from Taco Bell. Made two tacos, one soft and the other crunchy. I also had carrots, Devon custard, and strawberries. I think today was a fairly healthy day. I did have a handful of candy and that’s alright. 😎

Practiced my uke. Spent 20-30 minutes on it. I’ve learned a bit of I’m Yours. The uke challenge concludes this week, but I’ll continue to learn more chords and songs. I’ve learned so much since day 1! I’m really proud of myself. 💜

Now we’re going to watch some episodes of The Simpsons. But first, some more Animal Crossing. I’m bummed my museum is under renovation, but it’ll be back tomorrow. I wanted to donate some fossils but it’ll be done later.

Hope you all had a pleasant Wednesday. Take care!

Good night.
