⚾️🥵

Baseball is my escape. Bummed that the season is winding down, but it is what it is. Looking forward to football! 7 more days. Niners!!!

Went to the Giants game with my friends. We won!!! Couldn’t stay in our seats though. Too hot!

It was Alaska voucher day. I’m trying to figure out where to go and when. I’m leaning towards Hawaii. I miss the islands! Haven’t been since 2004. Would love to return. I’ll be very respectful to the land.

There’s a lot on my plate, but taking it day by day. We’re still fundraising for Beari’s chemo and it’s been really slow. I’m grateful for any amount people are able to donate. We gotta get creative, but I’m not sure how.

I’m super sleepy. I took a nap earlier, but it didn’t really help.

It’s warming up in the SF Bay Area. Thankfully SF will be decent compared to inland temps. I cannot! Please stay cool and hydrated. 🌊 We’re a few weeks away from the fall! I’ll miss the summer, but I’m ready for everything pumpkin. 😋🎃

Wishing you all a great week! Take care.

My escape.

Sports has always been my saving grace. It was nice to be back at the yard! The Giants did very well. They almost blew it in the end. Perfect day for Will Clark’s retirement number ceremony.

I did have to unmask for a bit while I ate. I’ll probably test myself in a few days. No one around us was masked. Big yikes!!! 😳

It’s been tough these last two weeks, but we’re still standing. I’ll remain hopeful and I’ll continue to pray. My faith guiding me through this very difficult time. Send some love to our darling dog, Bear. ❤️🐻❤️

I’m clean and I’m ready to just unwind before I sleep. Thankful I’m off tomorrow.

Go Giants!!!! 🖤🧡

Good night.

Self care.

I was able to decompress these last few days! I’m reenergized for the rest of the week. I’ll most likely be working during the holiday and I actually don’t mind. I’m all caught up with my shows.

Caught up with our great friend, Walter for lunch today. It was nice to talk and update each other with our lives. We got to window shop too. I bought myself some new books, a Marge baggu that I’ve been eyeing, a purple pen, and an eraser. Reasonable purchases. I’m starting to save up again which is important!!! I’m looking into getting a second job. Sign of the times. 🙃 We’ll see how that goes.

Hoping to sleep soon. I’m snacking though! Chips, salami, and some fruit. 🙂

Giants are failing me. Womp. I miss basketball and football!!!

Wishing you all a great holiday weekend! Take care.

Good night.

🤬

What was supposed to be an awesome day became a shit show! Long story short, I wanted to finally meet Buster Posey in person and have him sign my 2014 World Series baseball.

Mom and I got there before 11. Honestly thought there’d be plenty of time for everyone to get their pic and autographs. As the clock approached 12:15pm, it was announced that they wouldn’t be able to take everyone. So disappointing!!! We were all pleading considering the cost and time for everyone. No luck!

Left my baseball to be signed at a later time. Hoping he really does! I’m still pissed. It was a logistical failure on the org’s part. I’ve been venting all over social media about it. Nothing was communicated to us while we waited. There were no signs indicating where to stand. It was so bad!!!! First and last time I ever do a signing that isn’t done by the Giants internally.

The silver lining is that Mom got her pic with him. Happy for her! I hope she gets it soon. 💗

I’m tired. Body is very sore considering I had to head home, eat a quick lunch, and go to work. I can’t even stay awake right now. Ahh!!

Excited for the Dubs parade on Monday! Hope that’s a better experience. They’re estimating 1M people to be there. My goodness! I’m anxious, but this is the first parade in SF. 💙💛🏆

This is good night. Can’t stay awake anymore. Later!!!

Happy June!

This month is flying and I’m making the most of it! 🙂 I caught up with friends on Thursday and tried Doppio Zero. Never been before so I wanted to try! I had the oxtail fettuccine and a Bellini. The food was absolutely amazing. I’ll be back for sure!!!

It was nice to see everyone again. We haven’t seen each other in months. Really thankful it all worked out. Afterwards we went to get ice cream. Salt & Straw!!! I went with a new flavor – Baked Brie and Fig Cheesecake. A very nice combo!🍦

I’m almost done with my TEFL cert! Better late than never!!!! That’s my motto. Slowly getting to where I need to be. Taking chances and staying confident despite my anxiety. Breathe.

Warriors won! 2-2 and back to the bay. Yee!!! 💙💛 Giants beat LA. 😎🖤🧡

I’m excited for a lot of things. Can’t wait! Hoping to sleep soon, but I’m such a night owl.

Happy weekend to all! 💗

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.
