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.

Day 171.

Happy Sunday! It’s a new week and I’m looking forward to what it brings. 🙏🏼 We watched The Little Mermaid before we slept. A childhood fave. 🧜🏼‍♀️

I took it easy. I slept in and I’ve been lying in bed. It’s been cold.

The highlight of my day was attending a zoom meeting for racial justice. It’s nice to hear and listen to others and their experiences. BLM! 🖤 I’ve got a list of new books to check out. I’m excited.

I’m currently catching up with a friend. So it’s nice to see how she’s doing!

Animal Crossing update: I slept in so I didn’t get my turnips. That’s okay. Lol. I’m taking in the final weekend of fireworks. I’ll miss it, but it’s been fun! 🎇🎆

I might eat a little something before bed. We ordered Korean food and boba. I requested salted cheese and they didn’t put it in. 😞 Next time.

Giants take the series in AZ! Trade deadline is tomorrow. The suspense is making me jumpy. Let’s see if they make a move.

Take care, y’all!

Good night.

Day 170.

I feel like I’m hitting a wall with something. Or maybe I’m just reading into it too much? Hmm. Either way I just gotta keep going – even with all of the distractions. Music is helping me focus!

Happy Saturday! Still processing the sad news of Chadwick Boseman’s passing. What a beautiful soul! He’ll be missed. RIP King. 🖤

I slept a lot today. I was feeling tired since I didn’t fall asleep right away. Hoping to be more productive tomorrow with cleaning and organizing. Maybe even do a load of laundry. I did help with changing the toilet seat! Score. 😎 Very useful skill to have. Check it out on YouTube.

I just finished the 600 day squat challenge with my arena strength booty bands. Difficult, but not impossible. Might do it every week! 💪🏼 YOU. CAN.

Giants win in AZ! Hurrah!! Losing streak is done. 🖤🧡

I just played my uke. It always sounds so beautiful and peaceful. Much needed after this heavy week.

Animal Crossing update: still trying to get the right villager to move out and it hasn’t happened. I’m going to try again since there’s a visitor at the campsite. Lol. Last fireworks show tomorrow! Let me see if I can find a Black Panther design. Would love to honor CB in that way.

That was my Saturday. Mellow, but somewhat productive. The days just go by quickly. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 169.

TGIF! What a day. I wasn’t feeling well earlier, so I took it easy for the last few hours. I’ve been feeling stressed and anxious. I had to breathe and let go. I exercised too. I got through it.

The news of Chadwick Boseman’s passing has left me heartbroken. What a talent! I enjoyed him in 42 and Black Panther. RIP. ❤️

I finished some work stuff. That’s where my anxiety stems from. I want it to be perfect, but it’s a work in progress. As long as I’m improving – that’s all that matters to me.

Last Christmas is finally in my possession! Now it’s part of our movie collection. Yay!!! 💗

Animal Crossing update: I played for about 30 minutes. Took care of maintenance on my island.

Giants losing streak is at 3. Still cheering for them. 🖤🧡

I might play my uke to give me some peace. I’m just looking forward to the weekend. Deep breaths. Everything will be alright.

Happy weekend to all! Take care.

Good night.

Day 168.

It’s been a meh kind of day, but I’m making progress. I finally bought the Sailor Moon blushes from the Colourpop collab! Thanks for the assist, twin. 💜 She was clutch!

The Giants disappointed me today. 0-2 with the doubleheader. I’m just glad we got the first game. We won’t see LA again this season. Phew. Playoffs or not, it’s been fun to watch this very interesting season.

Animal Crossing update: I bought another piece of art from Redd. Yay! He doesn’t stop by often, but when he does I take advantage of it. I’ll try to clean things up on my island this weekend. I’ve been too distracted with work stuff.

Work stuff: I’m finalizing course descriptions and outlines. I’m planning to stay up a bit to finish everything so I can submit it tomorrow. Trying my best to get back to a routine. It still feels like March tbh.

I napped for a few hours. I needed the rest. I’m still very emo, but I’ll be okay. Whatever this is. 🙃 I don’t know. The pandemic has made it hard to meet new people, but I’m making the effort.

It’s so cold now. I miss the warm weather. Might go for a walk tomorrow. We’ll see. I must also keep in touch with my docs. Eep.

Well it’s time to exercise, play my uke, and eat dinner! Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care.

Good night.
