Started the day off late because I was hanging around the apartment while the A/C was being fixed. Of course, I originally requested it be fixed on Friday, but now we don't have a need for it... Until summer actually arrives. I gave up on spring. . . So many things happened in the news today... The southwest plane accident is scary.... I don't like window seats usually, but uh I guess my dislike for them shall continue. . .

Return homeee!! Travel can be fun, but it is definitely better with ppl you love... And it is tough leaving them behind at home. Half day of training, but actually couldn't get as much done as I hoped. Poop. . . S picked me up from Dulles! ❤ Then we came home, and he had some work to do, so even tho I was tired, I felt lowkey guilty and also worked, ahha. . . Emotional state: sleep deprived . . 1 good/thanks: S liked my souvenirs hehe . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day117 #teakoe
Today was the first full day of training at Denver. The topic was very interesting, so I didn't mind being in lecture for almost 8 hours. But the only bad thing is that we can't really get work done during training time. So I had a lot to do, so I didn't go to the group dinner instead of work after training for 7 hours. That's a little tiring. . . But I caught up with L from LA! Always so nice to meet her. I feel we share a similar understanding of our associate lives, heh. Also, the westin restaurant is yummy! . . Emotional state: tired... . . 1 good/thanks: it's fun to face time with S. . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day116 #denver #work #humpday
Flight day! Had training to go to, so went on a plane to Denver... I am getting much better at doing work on the plane... Maybe my time on the cruise has made me used to motion... the airport has a hotel right next to it, so we didn't have to go into downtown Denver for training. Although is nice that we don't have to be on a taxi for 40 minutes, at the same time there's not really anything at the airport. . . After coming to the hotel, I went to a happy hour that one of our Affinity groups had. It was nice to catch up with old friends and meet new friends. . . Emotional state: no billables for training . . 1 good/thanks: so yay for non travel hours when I can do work?.... . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day115 #denver #training
Busy Monday. So many things to do before I fly off to Denver for a few days for training. S had an equally busy day, starting a new rotation. So for dinner I treated us to Chipotle. 😋 Then we were good kids and went to the gym for a hot second. S actually ran... I just flailed on the elliptical machine. Hehe. . . Packing is boring.... hope I dun forget anything... . . Emotional state: swamped... . . 1 good/thanks: gym buddy S, healthy eating buddies A and K. . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day114 #chipotle #burrito #exerciseitaway #onlyafractiontho
I finally found the lost Polaroid photo! Actually it wasn't me who found that it was S. He was making some room for the groceries that we bought yesterday, and then he saw something in the car seats in the back. Turns out I somehow lost it there. So in celebration of finding this Polaroid, I'm using it instead of taking a new photo for today. . . We went to Panera to study & work today. I got a lot of things done today but I've been feeling a little bit sick last few days so it's been frustrating. Tomorrow I'll go to work as normal, and then on Tuesday I'll be flying out to Denver for a few days. 😿 . . Emotional state: off . . 1 good/thanks: S, always. . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day113 #takeabreak
Hello sis!!! Picked up sis from Union Station and then went to Little Dipper... To find they closed for today or forever or whatever.... Boooo... So instead, we went to @littlesheephotpot !!! I am sorta glad we did, because the food was amazinnnng. I was worried we would not finish, but S, sis, and I def cleared it all. Nom. . . S and I took sis to Costco and dropped her off at parents. Then we went to Fair Oaks to essentially do the massage chairs in @brookstonegifts ! Best lol... Then we watched some shows, and had a late night Dominos over some serious religion discussions. . . Emotional state: fun day with sis and S! . . 1 good/thanks: S explaining everything to me . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day112
It was one of those you win some you lose some days. Also, I am getting sick from the stress I think. Lots of stomach and general sickness issues this week. Sigh. So instead of going out, S and I stayed in and had a relaxing night.... Can't wait to sleep without the alarm on!!! . . Sis is coming back to the area tomorrow!!! S and I will take her around and amuse her until we plop her onto K in the evening. . .

One of those days where you crave easy bake pizza and mac and cheese.... And you add salad from guilt. It was one of those days where you got everything but the things you wanted to get done.... Done. :( It's too early in the year to be burnt out, but I guess that's why you really need periodic breaks and rest.... Sigh. . . Tomorrow is the birthday of two of my white girl friends. Lol jokingly, now all future white girl friends will have to have the same birthday, or else we can't be fwiends.... Maybe. . . Emotional state: still so burnt . . 1 good/thanks: but it's so nice to have a 24/7 supporter . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day110 #pizza #macncheese
You can't see but that is a bowl of nommy egg drop soup made by S. I mentioned wanting it, and S just makes it. ❤ #blessed . . Today was a "snow day"...

Happy Sunday!! I had a productive day at @lepainquotidienusa with S today. We started the day off at @ihop , and headed off to Old Towne Alexandria for some study date. There were some odd complaining ppl at both places, but overall, it didn't bother us and our focus, ha. Then we returned to my apartment after dinner so that I could finally do some laundry.... I feel laundry never ends. 😵 Ready to start a new week? . . Emotional state: why do I keep getting infections from bug bites . . 1 good/thanks: but yay to doctor sis and co. . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day106 #lepainquotidien #ihop #brunch #studydate #adulting

Day 6 if cruise!! And I look like an armless mannequin.... O.o but yay Lucaya Beach at Freeport! We were there only for a hot second, so we took a taxi to Port Lucaya and walked to the police station, which is by the free entry to the beach. At first, we just saw the rocky "beach"... But learned we had to walk over to the left past some rocks to get to the sandy beach. Sooo pretty! Sis found more fish today lol... This girl serious about swimming with fish. . . On the way back to the ship, ate some nachos and drinks (Sands beer, pina colada, and margarita)! Also got two postcards for A and technically J. So funny.... I cannot wait to give them.

Cruise day 4 at Princess Cays! Yay! Started the day off early and was on the 2nd tender to the island. The water was beautiful~🌊 although there was a lot of kelp and rocks. 😂 I was fine because I had my water shoes, but the rest of my fam was sad... They thought it'd be a good idea to not wear water shoes. We also went "snorkeling" using our goggles. We saw so many fishes... But my sis was an adventurer, seeing all the big schools of fish. 🐟🐡🐠🐟🐟🐠🐡🐟 . . Now we are pooped from all the exercise. I think I also got a little bit tan. . .

Day 1 of fam cruise!!! The embarkation process was really painless. We had the appointment time of 3:30, but got to just go as we arrive more closer to 2:30. Yay! We then walked around the ship and saw all the food outlets and lounges. The safety drill was a bit confusing... Because directions were not clear... But uh.... They tried? . . Dinner was so good! Got two appetizers, an entree, and dessert. Will S even recognize me in a week? 😆 After dinner, I tried to do work for a little, but westlaw wouldn't connect, and vpn and such were slowww... So I did some ghetto google searches. Found what I needed but the struggle was real lol.... The opening show was somewhat awkward, but ppl sing so well!!! . .

Oh, we watched the women's figure skating... :( sorta was rooting for Medvedev... . . Emotional state: almost near the belated vacay! . . 1 good/thanks: S running out to cvs in the middle of the night to get me gauze. 😢 . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day82
What a long day. The first half was filled with stress because this random bug bite was hurting lots... I was worried it was MRSA, but turns out it was just a regular run of the mill infection. But still got on antibiotics. My sis and others would probably be annoyed that the antibiotics are being overused. ;;; . . Then the rest of the day was me staying later at work to get things done. But A and I are essentially thai.... We ate thai food again for dinner. Yes. Also, S brought me these S'mores girl scout cookies!!! These are quite new!!! . . Emotional state: stressssss . . 1 good/thanks: Having someone worry about you so much when you are sick 😣 . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 . #day81
This photo is not for today. :( I lost the original somewhere.... But the original photo is of some LUSH bath bombs! S's first try of bath bombs, hehehe. Also S's first &pizza. Otherwise, I was really busy, getting all my ducks in a row before fam goes on a cruise. . . Emotional state: tired!!! . . 1 good/thanks: vacation soon!!! . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day80
I am going to miss the breakfasts at @briarpatchbandbinn !!!! The tater tot casserole and spinach quiche were amazingggg. 😢 My love for breakfast foods was truly satisfied this weekend. Again, much applause to S for embarking on this B&B adventure with me. ❤ also much applause for feeding me while I cram work. . . *rambling* It's been 2 years since grandpa passed, and it's been hard whenever I remember his funeral and related shenanigans... And I also remember clearly how his voice sounded in the voicemail he left me in 2013 (which I have saved in multiple harddrives)... So due to many things, it's always emotional when I remember him... And the past two years were filled with me failing at my promise to him that I would be kind to myself and be with someone who treats me well. Since he would have cared tons about my happiness and would've been upset if I were with someone who treated me poorly... It meant a lot for me to be able to bring S to visit his grave today. I think he would've liked S. . . Emotional state: 😭 . . 1 good/thanks: not ashamed or guilty feeling anymore! . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day79 #byeweekend #jurydutytomorrow #no
A lovely second day at the @briarpatchbandbinn !! We started the day off with delicious breakfast.... Tater tot casserole!!!! Nom. Then went to @stonetowerwinery for some morning tastings. And then @senorramon for delicious taco lunch. I was sad they were out of Mexican corn, but the corn fritter things were good. Then~~~ went to @leesburgoutlets to get tons of white shirts for S. lol ❤ . . After much napping, went to @kingstreetoyster for dinner. Lovely menu with great seafood dishes!!! I got the cold lobster roll, and it was yum~~~ The weekend was really relaxing and fun. ❤ . . Emotional state: ❤❤ . . 1 good/thanks: S thinking I am cute even when I'm sick. . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day78 #longweekend
Happy long weekend!!! ❤ I woke up with the thought of doing some work and did no work.... Ah ha.... There are still 2 more days left!... (Until jury duty???) This weekend was in plans for awhile, but for Vday, S planned for us a wonderful weekend at @briarpatchbandbinn !! And it has honestly started our new obsession with B&Bs. The employees were so nice, and the property is sosososo cute. Also.... I dunno how S got the weather to cooperate, but he made it snow, which made this trip that extra romantic. I am truly a winrer baby ❄. . . After settling in and eating our ribs and chicken from the Pit Stop Barbecue (amazingggggggg), we went to @quattrogoombas for a wine tasting. They had wine slushes, which were yummmm. ❤ Then afterwards, we went to @bestthaikitchen for dinner... And I was sooo full after, heh. Errr the drive back to Briar Patch was an adventure though because we had to go arounnnnd the back way. O.o Westworld is quite interesting!!! James Marsdennnn. . . Emotional state: ❤❤ . . 1 good/thanks: S and his good trip ideas . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day77 #briarpatchbedandbreakfast #quattrogoombas #bestthaikitchen #vdayweekend
Happy Lunar New Year!! Busy day, but so glad to go into the 3 day weekend... Even if I will have to do some work. Yay! I am also set for accessing internet for emergency while at cruise. Yay! . . S and I met his friends for New Year's dinner at Hong Kong Pearl. We ordered five dishes and pretty much had leftovers of all of the dishes. But who knew that Mayo with shrimp would be so delicious? And here is US with some Bubble Tea (@kungfuteausa )in front of a very Asian calendar. Yes, representing the general Asian culture. Especially the Chinese one. Lookin at you NBC ... Nathan... You could've medalled. . . Emotional state: excited for nonexciting calmness . . 1 good/thanks: S makes up white lies for me so I dun have to myself.... . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day76 #newyear #chinesenewyear #koreannewyear #lunarnewyear
Nathan Chan.... I come from the near future, and I am sad you messed up the short program... Else you would've medalled. . . Also, I suck at lying. But anyway... Watched the olympics with S, thinking short program will come on for most of the evening, but nbc is dumb and it showed Adam Rippon and then mostly other sports... But goooo gold medal for Korea! 🇰🇷 Also chips ahoy chewie. ... This is all that happened. . . Emotional state: thought it was Friday sort of day. . . 1 good/thanks: when your worlds collide but it meshes. . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day75 #진짜아님 #거짓말는안함
Happy Galentinesday!!!! Also, happy first real Valentine's Day date night of my life with S! Yes. That's right. First legitimate Vday date night with a boyfriend. Much wow. ❤ I want to say I was productive.... Up until A got some edible arrangements, and then the ladies def spent maybe an hour or more chatting away while nomming on chocolate covered strawberries. Altho.... Medal goes to K for eating the ILU chocolate popsicle whole. Also, I finally paid up for the Patriots Eagles bet with J at the @welldressedburrito. Nom. . . I made "surprise" reservations at @flaviorestaurantdc ! It's where S and I had our first date, and so I thought it would be a surprise to pick the most expected location lol.... Also, they had a pretty great set menu for Vday, and I got to try their popular flavio fra diavolo. Nomnom. ... We took this photo in front of the sign, but we are still working on the angles and lighting lol... Then we walked around gtown and watched the Moulin Rouge while sipping on some @banfiwines rosa regale, what I consider to be the signature Hotelie celebration bubbly. . . Emotional state: sugared up and ❤ . . 1 good/thanks: having the opportunity to spend another loving day with S . . #365of29 #29の365 #29의365 #day74 #moulinrouge #comewhatmay #flaviorestaurantdc #flavio #fradiavolo #banfiwines #rosaregale #happyvday #valentines
Busy weeks right up to the cruise... Omg. 😔 I feel like there are so many things that have to be done... But people spring up random last minute stuff at me... Wah.... Oh, but on another note, K and A confirm that the last polaroid looks creepy af. I mean... I really agree lol... . . Made a pile of kimbap before restarting another night of work. This time, we used spam (lol) instead of ground beef. Pretty legittttt. . .
