Day 231.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend. I can’t wait. The last few days have been tough. I just want all the candy right now. But I’ll be patient and wait for Saturday.

Work went well. Just had two students to supervise. As I’m adjusting to my ever evolving schedule, I’m getting the hang of it! The music helps in between breakout times.

Spam, eggs, and garlic rice for dinner. Hurrah! It’s been a while. Comfort food is the best.

I watched Dateline tonight. It was a really good episode. Now I’m watching NHK World Japan. My dream vacation! Someday I’ll get there. Maybe in a year or two.🤞🏼

Animal Crossing update: Halloween! I’ll tidy up the beach and some of the flowers tomorrow. I’m lacking energy at the moment.

Planning to sleep soon. Hope y’all had a nice one! Take care.

Good night.

Day 226.

Happy Saturday! 😎

What an epic Game 4 of the World Series! I really thought the Rays were goners. OMG! So exciting. So thrilling! 🙂👍🏼 Series tied!!! Go Rays!!!! 🌟

My day was okay. I went to sleep pretty early. I did sleep in for a bit. I didn’t get much done. The weekend always does this to me. Lol. I did my laundry. That’s a win! 😊

Animal Crossing update: Penelope is moving in! I found her on a random island. I went through a few until I decided to ask her. Yay! She’s great.

We had Korean food for linner. We also ordered cookies and cupcakes for dessert. I made two smoothies. I needed the fruits and veggies. Balance!

That was my Saturday! Now I’m watching the news for sports highlights and SNL in a bit. Take care!

Good night.

Day 223.

Happy Wednesday! 😄

It was a much slower day for me. I like taking my time in the morning. Everything went well today. And for the most part, the students don’t give me a difficult time. I’ve noticed that everyone has to be louder while wearing a mask. I only wear my face shield indoors. It’s nice being able to take it off when I’m outdoors.

My aunt gave me a ride home again so that’s always nice. I can’t rely on ride shares or public transit this year. My driving lesson will be here soon enough. I’m actually pretty juiced.

I ate dinner early. I was able to take home a burger from work. It was good! And that’s the nice thing about lunch – everything is in a takeout box.

I watched Game 2 of the World Series. I was a bit superstitious at first, but we eventually tuned in once my brother got home from work. The Rays looked dominant. Very different vibe from Game 1. Snell and Lowe stood out to me. Go Rays! ✨

Animal Crossing update: someone was at the campsite. I’ve passed on inviting them to Mango. I might reconsider. My island needs work, but I haven’t had much time.

We also watched Unsolved Mysteries. The story was based in Oslo, Norway. I’m still spooked! 😱👻 But it was such a fascinating story.

Early day for me tomorrow, so I’ll be sleeping soon. I’m ready for the dentist again! Bring it.

Good night and take care!

Day 222.

How is it already Tuesday?! 🙃 I had the day off and that’s only because I didn’t have a student on my roster. Back to work tomorrow.

I’m so sleepy right now. I’m also a little anxious because of some health stuff. 😢 I hope I’ll be okay. I took a nap earlier, but I’m planning to sleep soon.

I stayed up watching Unsolved Mysteries s2 and Just Like Heaven on demand. UM was so eerie. It was about a woman in Oslo, Norway. Check it out if you’re into mystery and crime. I was spooked after watching. I watched another epi in the afternoon with my sisters. That one was super interesting too. The story took place in Michigan.

Animal Crossing update: I was supposed to sell some turnips, but I forgot. Flick is visiting.

I’ve got two more days of work left. I also have my dental appointment on Thursday. Busy week is almost over. I can get through this.

I’ll mention the World Series. The Rays weren’t too hot. It’s only Game 1. I hope the rest of the series picks up. But for now I want them to tie it. Go Rays!

Take care, everyone!

Good night.

Day 183.

TGIF! 🙂 We made it to the weekend. I stayed up watching Julie and the Phantoms. I finished it. So good!! 💗

I always reflect on 9/11. I was a high school freshman. RIP to all the beautiful souls. We remember. I have so much respect for first responders. Thank you. ❤️

The Giants didn’t play today. Someone tested positive for COVID-19 so the game was postponed. I hope our player will be okay. Name wasn’t disclosed. No baseball for us for the next few days. 😢

I’ve been awake for most of the day. I did take a nap after breakfast. I’m in the middle of working on my class assignment. I’m almost done! I just need to type up a paragraph. AQI was very unhealthy today. I hope it improves soon. There’s ash all over our car.

Productive chat with my therapist. She’s always encouraging me! Gotta face things head on. Fear won’t win.

I’ve gotta exercise in a bit. Must get my squats done.

Animal Crossing update: couldn’t find the message in a bottle. What?! This has happened two days in a row. Very odd. My island is doing alright. I’ll tend to it this weekend.

Alright. Time to sweat. Exercising helps me focus. Then I’ll finish my assignment. I can!

Have a great weekend, everyone. Take care!

Good night.

Day 182.

I didn’t do much today. Happy Thursday! I’m glad it’s almost the weekend. I need to recollect myself badly. 🙃

I’m really digging Julie and the Phantoms on Netflix. It dropped today. I’m already in the middle of s1. The cast is great!

I’m about to exercise in a bit. I opened Snapchat earlier today and it was a baseball memory! A year ago today I was at Oracle Park. I miss going to sporting events. I’m a little torn right now with a life decision. Not sure what to do! 😭 I’ll figure it out.

Animal Crossing update: nothing new. Still paying off my loan. Forgot to buy the cool washer at the store. Oh well. Maybe it’ll be back in a few weeks?

Giants lose in SD. Winning streak snapped. Pablo was DFA’d. I’m so sad about that. He’ll always be a Giants legend. Thanks for the memories, Pablo! You did well, kid. 🖤🧡

Btw Saweetie’s recent post on IG and Twitter made me cackle. I was so entertained. 🇵🇭❤️😆!

Time to work! If I’m feeling ambitious, I might study. If not, I can shelve it for tomorrow.

Good night.

Day 173.

Happy Tuesday! It’s officially September. 🍂

I had a very productive day. Although I was distracted with a lot of other noise. I eventually got everything done. I hope to be just as productive tomorrow. I took care of emails and finished another lesson for my TEFL course.

Before bed last night I watched a few episodes of Sister, Sister. One of my fave tv shows from childhood. 1. It’s a show about twins. 2. funny and amazing cast! 3. so many classic episodes. Check it out on Netflix if you’ve never seen it before! Mowry twins 💕

Animal Crossing update: It feels like Autumn! I mean it will be very soon, but AC is a little early. There are pine cones, acorns, and pumpkins. I love everything about the Fall! The color scheme is beautiful. There are new bugs and fish too. I’ll try to catch some more tomorrow. I’m excited! 😊

Caught Game 7 of the Utah-Denver series. Hard fought by both teams. Denver came out on top. I love the playoffs! And I miss the Warriors.

Giants won big tonight, 23-5, in Denver! It was nice to see a bunch of runs. Dickerson had himself a night! 😎🖤🧡 Keep going, fellas. Go Giants!

I also got to exercise. It’s week 2 of the 600 squat challenge. I’m on day 2 = 200 squats. 4 more days! I always feel accomplished when I get it done. It’s always hard in the beginning, but it gets easier towards the end. Go me! 💪🏼

Still thinking about a lot of things. I’m just trying to breathe. It helps with my anxiety. Music always helps too. I had to play my uke earlier to help me keep calm.

I’m hoping to clean and organize some more tomorrow. Just gotta plan the day out better. I can do this!

Lastly, my leggings from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale arrived today. Hoping to break them in soon. I’ve worn lipstick for the last 2 days. Instant mood booster!💄

Take care, y’all!

Good night.

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.
