Day 148.

Ahh, I’m a little late! Had to take care of some stuff.

Watched a few episodes of Twilight Zone with the fam. So many great episodes! Rod Serling is the best. 🖤

Animal Crossing update: Gulliver gifted me the Stonehenge. So cool! I’m still trying to figure out where to put it. Doing my best to clean up my island.

I’m trying to detox my social media usage. It can be a lot. I can waste hours on it. I’m planning to read more. Must focus on my career goals!!!

I got my exercise in too. The resistance bands are kicking my butt. It’s working!

Giants lost in LA. I just want one win from the series. PLS!!!

There’s a lot to do. I overthink a lot. Lots of thinking during the pandemic. We’re still in the thick of it. Keep safe, everyone!!! 😷

Enjoy the weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 140.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend. 😎

I was able to buy the Colourpop Sailor Moon eyeshadow palette. The blushes were in my cart, but I didn’t check out fast enough and they sold out. I hope there’s another restock. I was a bit frustrated with the process tbqh. I wasn’t alone in feeling that. The collection was released at 10am PDT. I entered the contest on IG, Twitter, and FB for a chance to win the entire collection. So maybe there’s luck on my side. 🙂

I stayed up watching the first season of Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love. It’s such a cute show and the cast is really good. I might start Part 2 tonight.

It’s been a busy, but productive week! I’ve got some things to prep for the potential after school enrichment courses I might be teaching in the Fall. Must brainstorm! It’s different from what I typically take care of at work, but it’s a nice way to share my passions with the community. 🙂 It was nice catching up with the boss.

I also caught up with my therapist on the phone after three weeks. It’s great to just talk and get her perspective.

Listened to some of the Giants game on the radio. Watched a bit of the Clippers/Lakers game too. Basketball is back!

There’s a lot to do these next upcoming weeks, but I’m looking forward to the change. Yay!

Animal Crossing update: Bought another painting from Redd. I check online to make sure it’s authentic. It was! Finally caught the gigas giant clam. It was challenging to get. It took me a few tries. I donated it to my island’s museum!

Uke update: I’m playing Somewhere Over The Rainbow with less errors. This is huge! I even recorded audio of me playing this afternoon. I sound good. When I’m really comfortable I’ll shoot a video to share with friends and family.

A&W rules btw! I love their Coney Cheese dog and curds.

Well, that was my day. Hope yours went well! Take care always.

Good night.

Day 139.

Happy Wednesday! It’s almost the weekend. Can’t wait. I’m sad to see July go, but I’m ready for August. Lots of revamping. Yay!!!

I was quite tired today. My sleep has been up and down. I’m trying to normalize it. SIP has been tough to navigate. I woke up from my nap about 45 minutes ago. Days are repetitive so I do my best to change it up. I really want to start doing yoga again. I was so consistent back in June. 😞 I’m being patient with myself.

The highlight of my day was cooking with my sisters. I contributed my peeling potatoes and cooking rice. We made adobo! So good. I love Filipino food. 😋

Animal Crossing update: Pascal gave me the DIY recipe for the mermaid dresser. I’m getting close to the entire collection. And the new update for fireworks, dream sequence, and so much more is being released tomorrow! Some folks have already had it for a few hours. I’ll just wait until midnight.

I’m dealing with some anxiety, but I know I’ll work through it. Discomfort is real, but it’s how we grow. Our comfort zones are cool, but it’s too safe. Although 2020 has been something, it’s good to challenge ourselves! I’m still brainstorming about what online class I want to offer in the Fall. I’ll get there.

I also renewed my Flickr account. It hasn’t been active since January? So confusing. Glad it’s reactivated. I back up my pictures on there.

Giants win! 🖤🧡 It was a walk off. Thanks Yaz!! Our offense is showing up. It’s nice to see. I watched for a few innings and then I took my nap. Lol.

That was my day. Hope yours went well. Take care!

Good night.

Day 134.

I didn’t do much today. I watched a lot of Netflix – The Kissing Booth 2 and Indian Matchmaking. I love learning about different cultures. I like the show! Nadia is a Queen.

I took a nap after lunch. We had Shake Shack. I went with my usual order. I love it so much!

Giants with another L in LA. I’ll always love them. Trust the process. 🖤🧡 It’s not pleasant to watch, but I’ll watch whether they win or lose.

Hoping for a really productive weekend. Must find my new desk and dresser. Gotta make moves this August! Planning to take a course online too as part of my career goals. 🙂

Animal Crossing update: Redd stopped by. All the art was fake except a painting I already donated to the museum. I bought it again to display it in my house. Looking forward to that tomorrow! Didn’t swim for my daily scallop. Might do that before bed.

Enjoy the weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 133.

Happy Thursday!

  • Opening Day! It’s different, but I’ll take it. The Giants didn’t do very well. 8-1 down in LA. We’re still rebuilding. Patience. 🖤🧡 I miss Boch!
  • Grocery run. I helped unload and put things away. Yay for essentials!
  • 10 years of 1D! The first concert we (sisters and I) attended was in 2012 at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland. Great memories! I miss live music.
  • It’s almost the weekend. I’m so happy.
  • Animal Crossing update: must sell more items and figure out what to do with my flowers. It’s still on my to do list. 😂
  • Lastly, I exercised today! I rode the stationary bike twice. It was a challenge, but I did it! Must build my endurance. I’m feeling pretty good.
  • That was my day! I hope yours went well. 🙂

Take care and good night. BEAT LA!!!!!

Day 132.

I’m going to keep it short and simple tonight. Hope everyone had a nice Wednesday! 🧡

  • Woke up at a decent time. Watched a few Glee episodes. I’m almost done with s1! 🙂
  • Took a nap because I still felt tired.
  • Made myself a 🌭 for National Hot Dog Day. Woo!
  • Washed the dishes.
  • Played my uke. I needed the music.
  • Had tacos for dinner.
  • Played some Animal Crossing. Got a new DIY recipe from Pascal. New villager moved in. Yay!
  • Created another dating profile. Trying to be patient with myself and this process.
  • Caught up with the BFFs via text.
  • Took another nap. I just woke up.
  • Now it’s time to really call it a night. May sneak in another Glee epi.

Take care everyone!

Good night.

Day 131.

It’s Tuesday. Hurrah! I had a fairly decent day. I slept in again, but that’s my norm.

I wanted to exercise today, but I will finally do that again tomorrow. I’ve been very inconsistent, but that’s okay. I will not beat myself up over it.

Shy me is on a dating app. Dating in person gives me anxiety so it’s about the same online. I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and there’s no time like to present to talk to new people especially during SIP.

Animal Crossing update: Pascal gifted me a mermaid princess dress. I love it! Celeste is currently on my island. I’ll have to look for shooting stars tonight.

Giants are 2-0 this preseason! They’re off to LA for the start of the regular season. Go Giants!!! 🖤🧡

I ate a mix of junk and healthy food today. I’m done consuming junk for the night. I hope to be more productive tomorrow. I watched a lot of Glee episodes and caught up with friends via text tonight. ❤️ I also played my uke again. 🙂

Hope y’all had a nice day. Take care!

Good night.

Day 125.

It was a rest day for me. Riding the bike yesterday took me out. Luckily I completed my stand goal. I fell asleep for a few hours.

Animal Crossing update: I’m trying to design a top. It’s taking me a while to get used to the grid. Patience. Everything’s a trial run. Pascal finally showed up and I got a pearl! He hasn’t been around for two days. My AC crew neck arrived today. I love it! The color reminds me of Cinderella.

Highlight of my day was finally getting Shake Shack. Every time we wanted to order it either just closed or they weren’t taking deliveries. I went with their Shack Stack – a cheeseburger patty with a ‘Shroom burger and the fixings. So good! My boss recommended it to me. No wonder he loves it.

I stayed up watching Glee. I also caught up with my BFFs via text. We exchanged messages for almost an hour. Good times.

I need to play my uke. I didn’t get to practice yesterday. That was my Wednesday. I hope y’all had a good one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 123.

Happy Monday! 😎

California is rolling back reopening. As sad as it is, it’s for the best right now. Coronavirus cases are increasing! Governor Newsom has done a fantastic job implementing steps and plans for our beautiful state.

I rarely leave the house anymore and you get no complaints from me. As much as I miss socializing and going out – it’s not worth the risk for me since I’m immunocompromised. Plans for returning to work are up in the air too. The education system is taking a hit. It’s not safe. I never would have imagined 2020 to be like this. It’s been hard, but I’m remaining strong.

My new mask arrived today. Animal Crossing! It’s so cute. I may have to order another one soon. Speaking of AC, my new villager, Drake moved in. I was looking for a scallop earlier today, but no luck. I’ll try again in a little bit.

I was able to tidy up my desk, shred papers, and trash some things in my room. I love cleaning! 🙂

I’m in need of chocolate. I placed an order for some British snacks, but it hasn’t shipped yet. Maybe tomorrow. I miss their crisps!

Lastly, today’s been heavy with the news of Naya Rivera. I grew up watching her on TV – Family Matters!! We’re the same age. My heart breaks for her son, family, and friends. RIP beautiful Naya. ❤️

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

Good night.

Day 122.

Happy Sunday! 🙂

I spent the day watching Supermarket Sweep, playing Animal Crossing, and had a jam session with my uke. I’m getting more comfortable with switching chords. Yay!

We were invited to a small gathering, but had to politely decline due to the pandemic. I hope everyone had a great time. We miss our friends! ❤️

I bought an AC cap of Celeste. She’s one of my favorite characters. There’s a crew neck I’m looking at on Etsy too. It’s nice that they’re located in California so if I move forward with the purchase I won’t have to wait too long.

I went on the exercise bike for 10 minutes. I call it a victory! I’ve gotta monitor my heart rate. If it’s too high, I slow down or I take a quick break. Having chronic conditions have been tough, but I’m tougher. I’ll always be resilient!

The treat of the day for the fam was ordering matcha drinks and soft serve. I missed it so much! 😋🍦🍵

Well, I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.
