Day 294.

Happy Thursday! I can’t believe it’s New Year’s Eve!!! 😱

Here are some memories from 2020:

  • Spent the first few days of 2020 in London! I miss traveling. 😭 That would be my only flight of the year.
  • The Super Bowl and celebrating our birthday all of February! Our visit to Yosemite was a highlight. Life would change drastically a few weeks later.
  • One final happy hour in March. Then the world shut down. 💔
  • Invested most of my time playing Animal Crossing and I learned the uke!
  • I watched so many tv shows and movies. My sleep schedule was all over the place.
  • Grateful for everything in life especially my health, family, friends, work, and safety.
  • I’ll even put online dating down. 😂 It didn’t work out, but it was a life lesson.
  • Pinayista! 🇵🇭❤️
  • The election! 🇺🇸

It’s been a ride. Here’s to 2021! Please stay safe and be well. 🥳🥂💜

I cooked and I baked today. Beari was also coughing. I hope she’s okay. Felt the mini earthquake this morning too.

Btw the paper crown I’m wearing is from London. I decided to bring it back with me since I didn’t get to wear it last NYE. It’s cute! 👸🏻

This is good night. I’m so sleepy right now, but I gotta make it to midnight. I’m about to play Animal Crossing too. 🥰

Good night!

Day 286.

Happy Wednesday! I didn’t do much today. I finished sending out the rest of my holiday cards. That was a relief. I still have a few more presents to wrap up. I’m planning to clean up a bit before Friday! I can’t believe that Christmas is almost here.

We were able to grocery shop today. Yay! I stay home for all of that, but I help by unloading and putting things away. I really miss pre-COVID times. I know the world won’t be the same after all of this. 😭 I’m just thankful for food. ❤️

Anyway, I got to practice playing Last Christmas on my uke. It’s a lot of fun! I love learning new songs. I’ll probably learn some other Christmas songs too.

Animal Crossing update: it’s been something trying to get these festive DIYs. I only have 4 in total! I’ve stayed up just trying to get all of them. Here’s hoping I find another one tonight. 🥴🙃

I really want to watch The Bee Gees documentary. Maybe tonight? Or another holiday movie? I don’t know.

Planning to catch up with friends in the next few days. Can’t wait! Oh yeah, my highlight of the day: getting my Pat McGrath lipstick in the mail. Woo! Love the color.

Hope y’all had a good one. Take care and be safe!

Good night.

Day 258.

It’s Wednesday! Happy Turkey Eve!! 🙂 There’s so much to prep tomorrow so I’m planning to sleep earlier than usual.

I spent most of my day watching TV. I’ve got two episodes left of The Queen’s Gambit. I’m honestly hooked! I took a long nap after lunch. It was much needed.

Animal Crossing update: I got to tidy up part of my island! Win!! Looking forward to the holiday festivities tomorrow. 🦃🍴Should be a lot of fun.

I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately. It’s a mix of holiday, contemporary, and the Y2K era!! I’ve played my uke two days in a row. I’m learning some new songs.

This time of year is about being with family and friends, but it’s super important to celebrate at home. 2020 has been very different, but may our actions now preserve holidays and celebrations for the future! We can do it!!! 😷❤️ Be mindful of our essential workers too – we owe them so much!

Take care and good night! May you all enjoy the feast. Celebrate responsibly!

Day 242.

I had a case of the Mondays. I was cold and tired. It’s getting chilly in the city. I bundled up for work – beanie, scarf, and gloves. 🥶 Work was an adventure, but I’m always learning & growing. 👍🏼

I took care of everything on my to do list. My Covid test has been scheduled, ordered my meds, and dropped off a birthday card for Earl. Gotta deal with some other things later on this week. I hope it gets sorted out.

I wore my vanilla perfume today. It’s divine! Perfect for the season. I’m excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s been a trying year, but it’s nice to look forward to the little things such as hot chocolate, wrapping presents, and putting up decorations.

My driving lesson is tomorrow morning and I’m pumped! I hope I do well. It’s been a while. My instructor seems nice.

I had milk tea with boba earlier and I don’t think it’s the best idea. Lol! I feel pretty wired right now. I’m hoping I can sleep at a decent time. I gotta be up at 9am.

I strummed my uke for a bit. I’m going to learn some holiday songs to play for family and friends. 🙂

Animal Crossing update: I played this morning. I’ll play again in a bit to spend some time with Wart Jr. He’s moving out tomorrow.

That was my day. I hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 198.

Happy Saturday! It’s been a sad day. I found out this morning that our uncle passed away suddenly. 😭💔 He was so kind. RIP Tito Rino. 🤍

A death always puts everything into perspective. It’s a wake up call! I need to do more with my time. I need to stop wasting the day. This year has been super tough for everyone, but I’d like to believe there’s a silver lining after all of this. There has to be.

I played my uke and dedicated Somewhere Over the Rainbow to my uncle. Fly high!! 🌈

The Giants are in control of their destiny. They were handed a loss. Not sure what tomorrow will bring. It’s win or go home. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Animal Crossing update: The final Bug-Off event of the year happened today. I did pretty well for myself. I redeemed my points for a spider plate door decor. Perfect for the fall and Halloween!!

I finally got a workout in. This week has been heavy, but I’m slowly getting back on the horse. Work will be resuming shortly. There’s a lot to do before then. Just breathe.

We ordered Hahn’s Hibachi for lunch. Brings back so many memories! I got my usual, bbq chicken with rice. I’ll finish the last of it tomorrow.

Lastly, I wanna say Happy Birthday to my cousin, Ryan! 🥳🥰🎂

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

Good night.

Day 192.

I’m kinda feeling better today. Happy Sunday! It’s a new week and I’m looking forward to what it may bring. I watched Last Christmas again before bed. I can’t remember if it’s my 5th or 6th time watching. And I was at Covent Garden around where they filmed. So cool!

I was pretty tired again. I napped twice. I feel pretty energized since I’m tidying up my room. I’m putting away my luggage, my shoe rack, and I might be returning some things I purchased.

Caught some of the Niners game via their app. So many injuries. 😭😫💔 Bosa looks out for the rest of the season. Thomas might be too. Why?! The turf sucks at MetLife. We play there again next week vs. the Giants.

The Giants beat the A’s. No sweep! 🖤🧡🎃 Eight games remaining. We just need to win 5 to get into the postseason. Who knows?!

I played my uke. Felt like forever. I just needed music to help me feel better. Still in a funk. That’s the truth.

Animal Crossing update: finally paid off my loan! Decided to pull from my savings. Woo!! Truffles has officially moved in. She’s unboxing things, but it’s nice to have a new villager. 🙂

I’m just listening to music while I put things away. I have so much makeup. I put some on at home because why not?! 😊 It’s always fun.

That was my Sunday. I plan on studying a bit tonight. Progress!!

Take care and good night.

Day 185.

Football Sunday! It’s back. ❤️💛 The Niners struggled. It’s only one game. Adjustments will be made. Go Niners! 🙂

And the Giants were swept in SD. 😬 Hoping they pick themselves up. These upcoming games will be a challenge. Go Giants! 🖤🧡

Anxiety has been up and down. Still haven’t replied. 🙃

I slept in. I washed the dishes. Ordered boba. I’m hungry again. Might eat a bit more before bed.

Animal Crossing update: Had to time travel again to buy my turnips. I bought 30 this time around. Hoping to make a nice profit this week. My island is still a mess. 😂

I’m going to play my uke. Eventually respond to this text and tidy up. It’s a new week! I’m feeling pretty good. 💜

Hoping my assignment gets approved for my class. I’ve been waiting to take the test, but it’s still locked. Ugh. I think I mentioned this in yesterday’s entry.

Have a great week, everyone! Take care.

Good night.

Day 178.

Happy Sunday! It’s a new week and I’m ready to conquer it all. I’m still in a weird headspace. Trying to figure it out.

The Giants won! Last game in the series tomorrow. 🖤🧡

I got some work done although I was very distracted. It was also a really hot day in the city. I think we hit 96? Oh dear. 🥵 My window is open and I can still feel the hot air.

I might just take a quick nap. I’m a little emo at the moment. 😞 I played my uke to take my mind off of things.

Animal Crossing update: I’m so close to paying off my loan. I also saw shooting stars! ✨ Had to time travel to get turnips. Success!

My head hurts. I’m going to nap.

Hope y’all had a nice Sunday! Take care.

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 172.

We made it to the end of August. Happy Monday! ❤️ As we embark on a new month, I wish you all peace and strength. This pandemic has been tough, but we can!

Watched Work It before I slept. I actually enjoyed it. Loved the cast and music. 💃🏻

I was supposed to study earlier and I haven’t done any of it yet. I hope my motivation changes. I’m still in a funk. I’ll snap out of it! Gotta keep going with my goals and dreams.

MLB tradeline: Giants picked up a new pitcher. We lose D. Rod. Good luck in Detroit! I wish it would’ve worked out in SF. We’ll be cheering for you!

Animal Crossing update: Flick is on my island. Trying to sell him as many bugs as possible. I need the bells!!! I haven’t seen Celeste in a while. I don’t play as much as night – that probably explains why!

I’m making progress with work stuff, so I’m relieved. I was a little stressed out after turning it in and then anticipating the response from my boss. My goal: teach an online course. Hopefully it works out for me.

Chatting with that guy. Convo is up and down – I swear it’s my anxiety. I’ll leave him alone for a few days. I don’t want to be that girl always texting. We’re still getting to know each other. We probably won’t meet until next year. Sadness, but trying to keep things interesting. 😂

Oh yeah, my bro finally heard me play my uke earlier tonight that he closed my door during the NBA playoffs. LOL! Funniest thing ever. 🎼

Welcoming September with open arms. I miss the past. We can’t go back. We’re here! No more running. I must face my fears. I’ll be okay.

Lastly, I really like my new lip stain. I bought it last year. Such a nice red. 💋

Take care y’all!

Good night.
