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.

Faithful.

I will ride with my team win or lose. There is no in between or switching teams. I AM LOYAL. It’ll be us one day. It really will. Until then, Go Niners! ❤️ #FTTB

Btw my favorite part was the Pepsi Halftime Show. 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Good night.

Life update.

It’s been warm in San Francisco! It’s been nice, but also concerning. Growing up I remember February always brought rain and the cold. I don’t hate it! It’s nice to walk around and catch some rays. Global warming and climate change is happening. Terrifying!!!

The most important errand I ran this week was renewing my DL. I made my appointment to the DMV beforehand and prepared all the necessary documents. I was there 30 minutes at most. I hope my picture turned out okay! 😂

Still praying and thinking of our uncle. Still haven’t been sleeping well, but I’m trying. Worrying puts my body under a lot of stress. Trying to normalize a routine that works for me.

Temp work is picking back up again! I logged an hour, but I had to nap afterwards. The heat wasn’t helping. I hope to get more done next week.

I’m trying to figure out my Saturday plans. Hmm…I might just stay in. I really wanted to make a quick trip to See’s. Their chocolate is the best. 😋 Birthday countdown is 8 days!!! It’s a mix of dread and excitement. Ahh. But I always tell myself, it’s a privilege to grow old. ❤️

I hope to sleep soon. Wishing you all well! Happy weekend ☀️

Take care!!

b

Never mind.

Haven’t been able to blog daily, so I’ll just type up an entry when I can. 😬

I had a very busy day. Now I’m tired. I’d love to nap right now. 😴 But first I’m going to look into impala skates. I want to start rollerblading again! I used to all the time growing up. I think it’d be fun to pick it up again.

Still praying for our uncle. We love you, Tito Roland! 💗

ACNH not being good to me right now. I ordered a statue and it hasn’t been delivered to me. It’s going on 2 days. Wth?!! 😤

Don’t have any exciting weekend plans. I’ll be cleaning and gathering donations or putting things up on Poshmark.

Alright I’m going to lie down. Happy weekend to all!

Good night.

Farewell to you, 2021!

As I reflect on this year, there’s a lot to take away. So many highs and lows. I’m very hopeful that 2022 will be amazing. That’s always my mindset at the beginning of the year! I try to be consistent, but life happens.

Very thankful to be vaccinated and boosted! It was a relief early on to finally see family and friends in person. I was so happy! Omicron is here and I continue to stay vigilant. I’m very mindful and considerate of others during the pandemic. It’s been exhausting, but I persist. I care about my family, friends, colleagues, and the community.

I’m hoping for pleasant surprises come 2022! Whatever that might be, I’m ready. I plan to get my first tattoo after our birthday. Still trying to figure out what I want. I also want to take care of myself holistically – mind, body, and soul.

I just did my makeup even though we’re staying in again this year. Totally fine with it! We cooked yummy food, ordered ice cream, and plenty of wine to go around. Can’t wait! I’m going to enjoy the night with a side of Animal Crossing New Horizons. 😊

So here’s to 2022! May it be filled with good times and memories. 🎉🥂❤️

Take care if you’re heading out. Stay safe and enjoy the night! For those staying in, may you have good company to enjoy the festivities.

See y’all in 2022!!! 🎇 Good night.

Self care.

I had an eye appointment today and all went well. Decided to swing by Chase Center to see the tree then Japantown for mochi and snacks.

I’ve been dealing with a lot – mentally and emotionally! I know I’m making the best decision for myself. If people can’t accept that, I’m moving on. 💗

Christmas is almost here and I’m trying to make the most of it!! I still need to finish writing some greeting cards.

I’ve slept a lot. Much needed.

Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! Take care. 💜

Happy Birthday to you, Lola! ❤️

She’s 92 today! Time flies. I just want to say thank you for raising us – cooking, cleaning, and keeping us in check. I remember we used to get nagged if we didn’t change out of our school clothes or clean up after dinner. She taught me how to cook rice too!!

We brought brunch over to her this morning. Filipino food! And then more Filipino food for dinner. 🥰 She liked her presents too, a scarf and a beanie. Temperatures are starting to drop and I really want spring to be here already!!!

I’m emo, but I love our Lola. I was the one attached to her whenever she flew back to the Philippines. Full on tears! 🥺😭 Very grateful for our grandparents.

Going to end it here. I have an interview to prep for before bed. I hope everyone is staying safe! Good night. 💜
