Day 250.

It’s been an interesting day. I thought it was going well, but then I made one small mistake. I hate feeling this way. 😢 I’ll know better for next time.

There’s a lot on my mind. Some health news was delivered to me. I’m a little concerned, but here’s hoping everything is okay.

My dental work for 2020 is done. There was a lot of grey area these last few weeks. I hope everything is settled with insurance. My new night guard wasn’t ready. So I set up an appointment in December for pick up. 🤓

The rain made the day that much harder. We need it and I’m thankful. I just woke up from my nap and I’m trying to shake off these not so good vibes. My anxiety is up there at the moment. Just breathe.

Animal Crossing update: I caught more maple leaves! I tidied up some more. Decided to sell some more flowers at NC. The new update drops on Thursday. I’m so excited! Can’t wait for the holiday decor.

I’m ready to sleep straight through. I just need to start taking better care of myself. That first step would be sleep! Need 7-9 hours nightly.

We’re still in the middle of the pandemic. That’s been weighing on me too. I can only control MY thoughts and actions. Let’s get it together, America! The virus has been here. It’s real! Please make good choices. 😷

This is good night. Take care!

Day 246.

TGIF! I’m so happy it’s the weekend. This week was a lot, but I got through it. 💕

My weekend plans: clean, study, and watch movies. I’m going to activate lazy and couch mode. Might pay a quick visit to our family so we can see Tink. Maybe Saturday or Sunday? I also need to practice driving. I can do it!

It was a busy Friday for me. I had another COVID test done before my dental appointment next week. Just need to clear up some insurance stuff and settle a bill. I need my new night guard! PLS.

The rain finally arrived in the Bay Area! And it was cold. Oh dear. 🥶

I’ve placed a grocery order online and got some things at Target. Trying to find Christmas gifts too.

We watched The Simpsons, an old episode of Supermarket Sweep, and 20/20. 20/20 was so sad. Probably one of the saddest episodes I’ve ever seen.

Getting ready for the holiday season. I’m so ready!

Animal Crossing update: I sold my turnips. Not much else happened. Maybe it’ll be more eventful tomorrow.

That was my day. Hope y’all had a nice Friday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 224.

It was a Happy Thursday for me! Hello!! 🙂

My day started at the dental clinic. I had three fillings to take care of and a new impression for my night guard. I’ve been clenching and grinding my teeth for almost a decade. Super important to have one fitted! I’m excited to get my new guard. Two weeks! Sitting in the chair was an adventure. They had a suction guard in my mouth. My jaw was tired by the end of it. Didn’t deal with a lot of pain. Super thankful for my dental student. A true professional! Thanks, M. 😄

Then before I even got in the chair, my boss sent me a text saying I didn’t need to come in since the only student on my roster was getting picked up early. Hurrah! Here’s to a lovely four day weekend. I’m going to take full advantage of it. I’m planning to clean, do my laundry, and study. I’ll also watch movies and the World Series. Go Rays!!!

It was a lovely afternoon at home. We had brunch and watched an episode of Unsolved Mysteries and Dark Tourist. Japan is still my dream vacation. I’ve been wanting to go since I was a kid. Must continue saving up and once this pandemic settles, I’m off!

I decided to nap since I got up really early. I woke up in time to tune in for the final presidential debate. Voting blue! If you have a moral compass, believe in equality, and justice for all – Vote Biden & Harris! America needs new leadership. People who can lead the way and will listen to Americans across the board. 2016 came and went. My fear was healthcare. Thankful to be in California where I’m taken care of for my preexisting conditions. What about my fellow Americans in other states?! It’s a terrifying thought. People losing their insurance in the middle of a pandemic. The monstrosity! People are voting early. I’ll be filling out my ballot this weekend. CHANGE!

Animal Crossing update: Tex is moving out. C.J. is on Mango buying our fish. Hurrah!

I’m planning to watch a holiday movie before bed. Halloween is practically here, but I love the holiday season!! The music does it for me. So great! 🎄

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

Good night.

Day 155.

TGIF! So glad it’s the weekend. 🙂

It was so hot today. I think it hit 97 degrees in the city. I enjoy the rare hot day. It can just be overwhelming since a lot of older SF houses aren’t equipped with air conditioning.

I decided to get my walk in anyway despite the weather. All I need is 15-20 minutes.

We finally got my dresser in my room. It took a few days to build, but it looks great! I’ll be smart with how much to store. The drawers are too pretty. I’m planning to do more cleaning, organizing, and get a load of laundry done. So many moving pieces these next few weeks.

We had Shake Shack for dinner. So good! It’s definitely in my top 3. I didn’t get my usual so I went with the ShackBurger with cheese.

Animal Crossing update: I bought a new painting to add to my museum! And the last time I played today it was raining. I’ll play a bit before bed to do some maintenance.

I got some good news from my medical team. I just need to be super cautious and careful once we’re able to head back to work. I need eye protection. My glasses alone won’t be enough. I just want people to keep their distance and mask up. They also recommend surgical masks instead of a cloth one. I can definitely do that.

Giants lost a game they should’ve won. Yikes! I’ll always root for them. 🖤🧡 49ers: Kittle signed a 5 year extension. Wooooo! ❤️💛

Well, I’m pretty exhausted. I hope I can sleep well tonight. I might squeeze in a movie.

Have a great weekend! Take care.

Good night.

Day 154.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend. Yay. 😊

Yesterday took a lot of energy, but I’m still very proud of myself whatever the outcome of this will be. I’d love to keep talking and getting to know each other. It’s hard to gauge if feelings will be reciprocated. Taking a chance and creating opportunity is a big step!

I woke up at a decent time. The temperature of my room got me up. It was hot out there! 81 in the city. I decided to go for a walk. I needed to just be with my thoughts. I also got to photograph some things in the neighborhood. I found Bill Pullman posted! He’s one of my faves. 💗

I played some Animal Crossing. Nothing too eventful happening on my island. I’m hoping to have my college friend over this weekend! I’m waiting for Redd to return. I want more art.

My dresser will finally be done tonight. I want to put my things away already. There will be a lot of shuffling around. I’m excited for the change!

Going to remain positive. I’m hoping I get the okay from my medical team.🤞🏼 If I don’t, I’ll have to sit out. I trust their decision regardless of what it is.

Well, it’s back to building. Hope y’all had a nice one. Take care!

Good night.

Day 75.

It was another warm one today in the city. It was a busy one for me. I had a video appointment with my medical team at 9:15am. I got up at 8:30am. It was hard to fall asleep. I was having an anxiety attack. 😞 I eventually fell asleep.

They emphasized a lot of the things I should already put into practice. But staying home has made it difficult to exercise and be active daily. They also talked about diet and my water intake. I need to be mindful of sugar, salt, and processed foods. All the bad stuff I love I need to moderate. I can do it!

I was inspired by what my team told me that I decided to start up yoga again. The heat was something. It helped me sweat it out. I was so sticky. I hate that feeling, but I succeeded. I’ll take a break tomorrow and practice again Thursday.

I also caught up with my therapist. It’s always nice talking to her. I was a little nervous at the end since I played a bit of Over The Rainbow for her. I messed up a bit, but she could hear it. Yay!!! I’ll continue to practice. I will get all the chord changes down.

I made some progress with Animal Crossing. I only played three times today. I’m currently binge watching Sweet Magnolias on Netflix. I really like it! The cast is perfect. I’ll probably watch another episode before bed.

I hope everyone had a good day. The shelter in place will be lifted soon. I’m still anxious about it, but it’s important to be prepared and make good choices when you go out there.

Good night. 💜
