MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JUNE 18-24, 2018.

It’s my first full week of summer vacation! It’s odd to say that. I miss work, but I definitely need the time off. 😛

I think the highlight(s) of my week would have to be taking Dad to his first Giants game and adopting Sally. Despite the car accident, I’m glad my family and I are okay. I still get uneasy being in a vehicle, but fear shouldn’t stop me. Especially because we didn’t cause it.

Bruised and sore.

Here’s my update. I went through a lot this past weekend. It was actually terrifying.

We adopted a dog to add to the family on Saturday, 6/23. Her name is Sally. She’s a chihuahua, five years old, and was born with one eye. The other eye didn’t develop. 😦 She’s originally from the Central Valley. She’s very sweet, but still adjusting to her new environment. Anyway, after adopting her, we decided to go to Petco to buy a few things for her – a kennel, food dish & water bowl, a bed, and a toy. We were looking forward to getting home, but we never got there.

On our way home, my brother and I were involved in a car accident. We were 10 minutes away from home. We were at 23rd Street and South Van Ness. It was our light to go. As my brother attempted to make a left, this car is speeding from the left side and hits us. He pressed on the brakes as much as he could have. Our car is a tank, but a lot of the damage was in the front. I saw the bumper fly off. It was the first automobile accident that I’ve been involved in ever. It was really scary! And having the dogs there was even scarier, but they’re safe. I on the other hand had to be transported to the ER due to my underlying health conditions and I was bruised up pretty badly. I’ve got bruises on my knees, my chest, and overall soreness everywhere. I’m still dealing with it. It sucks! :/

X-Rays were ordered for my knee. Thankfully there was no fracture. I was able to go home after a few hours.

Our Subaru saved us just like in their commercials and I am eternally grateful. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to be attentive behind the wheel. Please stay away from all distractions, especially your phones. It can wait!!! I don’t drive enough in the city, but it’s always the other drivers. You can be the safest driver, but someone else can mess that up for you.

I’m recovering now and should be healed up for Orlando. I’m very excited! 🙂

Thank you so much to my cousin, Adrian for getting to the scene, the witnesses, and first responders.

Hope you all had a great weekend. Here’s to an awesome week!!

There was a lot of celebration this week! So thankful. But I was also stunned by the news of Anthony Bourdain’s passing. He was the total package. And he was one of the best storytellers of our time. RIP Bourdain. ❤

Work is winding down. Summer vacation is almost here!! I got to catch up with friends, ate mediocre food, and dealt with terrible customer service. :/

Hello!

So what was my week like? The highlight would have to be the tea party with Mom and my sisters. Quality time with them is thee best. We also browsed around Japantown and added more to our Sanrio collection. We really want to see Japan soon!! 😀

I was a bit stressed out. I hate panicking. My laptop decided to be a pain, but all was okay.

MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MAY 14-20, 2018.

My week was busy, but fun! I attended back to back Giants games, tried out the new cheese tart spot at Westfield, rode the new Muni train again, and caught up with college friends! We got to watch Yuna together.

I’ve been in recovery mode. I’m doing my very best to bounce back. Hanging in there! There’s a lot going on, but I must stay resilient.

LET ME THINK 17.

I’m gonna switch this one up a bit. Anyway, I’m sleepy, but I can’t sleep. Not until I get this off of my chest.

Am I hard to love? Am I looking for love in all of the wrong places? Am I being proactive about love? Some of the many questions that go on in my anxiety filled mind.

I think I do my best to be my most genuine self and sometimes it still doesn’t feel enough. I feel like putting myself out there will just be disappointing every time. Am I not opening myself up enough? I have my reservations. I’ve been hurt in the past, so my walls are very high. I might’ve mentioned this in a previous entry. I easily am hurt when people disrespect me. At times, I feel like I’m not being taken seriously. On top of that, I’ve encountered people who pose as your wing person only to have them betray you. I understand that everyone isn’t the same, but that one incident stung. I really thought I could trust her. I revisit it a lot and I wish I could’ve done it differently. Instead of telling her that it was okay. Because it wasn’t.

In the words of Kylo Ren, “Let the past die.” Oh believe me, I’m trying.

Now I’m ready to sleep.

Good night.

Family is not an important thing, it’s everything. -Michael J. Fox

There was a lot of reflection, processing, and crying this week. Grief is a part of life and everyone deals with it differently. Being with family during somber times is comforting.

Despite the sadness, I carried on with the rest of my week. We took Beari to the vet for her ultrasound, I finally rode one of the new Muni trains, and volunteered for another Growing Up Asian In America Ceremony at the Asian Art Museum. It’s always an empowering space.

SPRING BREAK!!! 😀

What did I do all week? I slept in, stayed up, hung out, and kept up with my walking goals. I also volunteered. It was nice to have a week off.

I also went to the 51st Annual NCCBF (Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival) and reconnected with old friends. It was great! And the PHA Walk. YES!!
