anyways i’m gonna keep a thread of my work from home / social distancing chronicles & highlights bc why not —

day 1: woke up 30 mins before work, stayed in my sleeping clothes (see: wfh business casual attire). also helped myself to a nice breakfast & coffee 😌
day 2: I’ve changed my Zoom virtual background to represent how things are going - EVERYTHING’S FINE.
day 3: I decided to take a shower during my lunch break. also, the county officially declared a shelter-in-place for 30 days lol. and I was 5 minutes late to my 9am zoom meeting that was scheduled after 5pm yesterday so is it really my fault?!
day 4: i left my apt for my physical therapy appointment. when i stepped outside, i heard literal crickets. parking was abundant. my PT said they’re moving to only having 4 PTs in the clinic each day.

wfh makes it v dangerous for online shopping tendencies. i need to stop!
day 5: it’s saturday. i woke up from a dream that i physically went into work thinking everything was normal again and was pissed to find that it was actually a weekend and i just got all my days of the week mixed up
day 5 again: channeled my inner “LILY ANNE” and baked cookies for the first time. they don’t look cute tho. also this is the second day my sister and I have been working on this 1000-piece puzzle 😪 already online shopping for cross stitching kits instead lol
day 6: gave in and bought animal crossing. first time playing this game at all aaannnddd i’m obsessed. everything about this game is so cute. i’m living vicariously through my resident representative bc she, too, is social distancing but like on an island 😌😌
day 7: played animal crossing during my lunch break. the GoT puzzle may have to be on pause for a minute bc animal crossing has all of my attention lol. also cancelled my parking permit on campus so i'll be getting my $17 back each month, ty very much.
day 8: this is the most ive gotten “dressed” in a week aka my bottoms are still without pants and i spent like over 3 hours on the phone with 2 friends and i had my favorite beer aka lindemans framboise
day 9: all I want is hot pot and boba 😩 now that I know we will not be returning to campus for the remaining of the academic year, I'm like...... do I go home!??! but there are so many cases in LA and I am still terrified of putting my parents at risk for anything, siiigghhh
day 10: started off my morning with some stretches and some time in the sun bc it had been raining so much up here! decided to order to-go coffees from a local shop and instead of asking for a rainforest latte, i asked for 2 rainforest CAFES. 🤦🏻‍♀️ social distancing got me messed up
day 11: my friend was kind enough to drop off five guys for dinner and i INHALED it lol. today was probably the most productive day of work i had since we started wfh lol thankful my supervisor doesn’t expect us to fill each hour of everyday as we adjust to this new normal
day 12: i left my house to do laundry at @Ebeth_thomas place but we hung out on opposite sides of the couch the whole time 😂😂 also got mcdonald’s for dinner and man, chicken nuggets and fries hit different after you’ve been cooking at home for all your meals lol
day 13: first full week on animal crossing - forced myself up to buy turnips even tho i wanted to sleep in some more lol. but finally was able to put the game down to do some cleaning & organizing around the house. hopefully that helps with the wfh stump this week
day 14: the sun was shining brightly when i woke up. put me in a good mood so i decided to tryyyy today for wfh. put brows, mascara, and lipstick on (which was smeared off at this point in the day). was a productive day and i even worked out a tiny bit and stretched after work!
day 15: woke up and found out we didn’t have to work today bc of the cesar chavez holiday 🙌🏼 spent the day doing chores on animal crossing so i guess you could say i was productive lol also cooked soyrizo for the first time and did a clay mask today 🧖🏻‍♀️
day 16: met with students today who seemed super unmotivated, which is valid! jus tryna pivot bc our huge annual yield event was canceled. also starting a calling campaign for URM & out of state students and i got 120 to do 🥴🥴 hoping this will be a nice way to connect tho
day 17: left the house today and went to campus to pick up my office printer. it was such a beautiful day today that after work, i went to the park for a walk and i saw so many cute doggies!! 😩😭 i even got my boba fix today. & my laptop desk & lawn chair arrived lol i’m ready!
day 18: i forgot to do one of these yesterday dammit lol my lawn chair arrived and i spent some time soaking up the sun in my little yard. wfh is weird bc i think i’m eating less but i have enormous cravings for all kinds of different meals and snacks and drinks 😩
day 19: did absolutely nothing today lol having fun playing online board games with my friends tho. also my yard got cleaned and omg it has so much potential to be a cute lil outdoor area now 🥺 pls send me any cute ideas!! ready for warmer weather 😌
day 20: i woke up & the power was out 😩 for a few hours too. freaked out not knowing what i was gonna do with myself! i ended up grabbing lunch at one of our favorite & most catered restaurants for work - oohh that hit the spot! miss getting it for free tho 😞
day 21: my cravings are fucking wild. i caved in and ordered thai food and they were the sweetest people ever!! threw in egg rolls and thai iced tea to my order for free 🥺🥺😭😭 today was the busiest wfh day i’ve had!!! also finished watching kim’s convenience already lol
day 22: meeting someone new while sheltering in place be like—
day 23: i’m finding that i’m only eating breakfast & dinner - it’s affecting me bc i feel all weak & shakey by end of day. i’ve been so busy since spring quarter started 😔 my sis thought i was so stressed i was taking an edible during work when i was jus eating chocolate lol

day 42: i cooked a new dish today - lemon garlic shrimp fettuccine and it was bomnmbbb! the more i work in this virtual world, the more i’m realizing that i am just FULL of ideas. all i do is bring new ideas to ppl hoping they are down to execute with me lol
day 43: for the first time in 43 days, i did a full face of makeup. i was in the mood. didn’t have a 9am meeting for the first time in a while and it was another nice and warm day! however, i was terrified when i got to doing my eyebrows omg i need my threading lady to clean me!

day 47: did an HBO movie marathon today. finally did my job as a property manager and let ppl in to see 2 empty units lol. had the pleasure of having a zoom catch up with my grad cohort & it was life giving! also made me realize i ain’t been up to shit these last 2 years 😭😭
day 48: did not paint this weekend BUT ☝🏼 i did start reading “i will teach you to be rich” by @ramit! most days it feels like i have to keep my head in the personal finance bubble to be accountable lol so i am now revisiting/continuing my motivation from the start of the yr
day 49: the day sped by! felt sick halfway thru work and to make matters worse, i spilled green juice on part of my couch, floor, and laptop 😩😭 hoping the laptop will be ok since it belongs to the sTaTe oF cA lol made chicken noodle soup and feelin a lil bit better now tho
day 50: how could i forget to do day 50! i jogged/walked for a mile yday and it was hard af tbh. but it was worth it bc i finally knocked out like a baby last night!! went on a target run too and ofc i would see 2 students there T_T and yes, i def picked up a bag of hot cheetos

day 53: forgot again 😅 walked 2.23 miles with Ahmaud yesterday and was reminded of how i benefit from anti-Black racism bc of the privilege i have to jog/run outside without the threat and fear of violence and death. while walking, i was wondering who else was trying to do 2.23
day 54: came down to la today and will stay thru the end of the month for my dads surgery. la was lookin a lil too close to traffic today tbh lol got boba immediately ofc and came home to bomb food! feeling so sore from my long walk yday 😅
day 55: been a pretty shit day if i’m being honest. made a decision i regret and can’t take back and may have to live with for a long while. so tired and feeling super defeated and helpless 😞 no idea how i’m gonna get thru this work week. or even this month. siiggggghh
dAy 56: don’t want to keep tweeting sad things so!! i will jus say i am grateful for my friends who check in with me, my entire work team - students, co workers, supervisor - who are all super supportive, flexible, and understanding. painted in the sun today and that was nice
day 57: ive been slippin which probably jus speaks to where i'm at in this pandemic now lol. i finished my paintings and im super excited to ship them off to people. i shouldve brought down more canvasses so i could've continued but maybe ill jus color with my mom instead lol

day 60: wow. 2 months in this thang. it has felt much longer than that. i know we have so much longer to go. and i hate so much that ppl are not taking this seriously lol we know what 6 ft apart is at this point and your IG stories and celebrations tell us otherwise, ppl!!!!
day 61: literally don’t know what i did today. can feel my family and myself getting cabin fever. going on target runs and grocery runs aren’t even fun anymore! so hard to breathe walking around wearing a mask. lines are long. people dunno how to social distance. ugh

day 63: took my dad to his surgery today. really sad i can’t visit him and make sure he’s ok. been thinking a lot about my hospitalization and how awful i would’ve felt without my family and friends visiting me & being there for me. feelin for patients hospitalized today 😞😞
day 64: my dad did not come home today but i think he’s coming home tmrow. for some reason they are not giving him his phone so i can’t imagine how bored and lonely he must be!! grateful for his side of the family who’s been providing our family with so much support 🥺
day 65: my dad’s home! he’s doing ok. in a lot of pain. refuses to ask for help or communicate his needs & wants to do everything himself -_- will probably stay in la longer to help him thru recovery. having a difficult time focusing on work tbh! i feel like a parent w/3 kids lol
day 66: what the heck i jus realized i won’t even be able to take grad pics with the students i work with and this is my second year in this job i won’t be able to do so and i’m so sad bc i’ve worked with bomb ass seniors this year 😞😞😭😭

day 68: oops forgot again. went to costco yday to grab things for my family and gah damn i spent a lot of money there. my parents always say how moving in with them will help me save money but every time i visit i spend a lot taking care of them loll i’m literally so bored 😞😞
day 69: oh my god i am so bored. there’s only so much tv i can watch. not enough peace and quiet in the house for me to read books. tired of seeing ppl not social distancing on social media. tired of eating food that don’t hit the spot. tired of men hitting me up for a hangout!!!
day 70: 70 days?!??!??? goodness gracious. didn’t feel like walking around my neighborhood today so walked around target and trader joe’s instead lol. got another jug of boba today. per my dads recommendation bc he thinks that’ll save us more money than buying individual cups 🤷🏻‍♀️
day 71: i miss making my own food. my moms kitchen feels like it’s very much hers. anything out of place makes her yell at me lol due to my dads recovery my mom been underseasoning/flavoring food so my cravings are wild! would like a sugar daddy specifically to doordash me food
day 72: done with my last event of the quarter 😥 largest turnout for a virtual program ive had in the last 8 weeks lol i feel so exhausted today, as if i physically went into work and left late lol. glad i has an excuse to put on makeup tho. my dad said i looked prettyful lmao
day 73: see all other tweets from today. and FUCK DONALD TRUMP. the fact that he, in the position he holds, is allowed to put in writing that he will shoot Black people............ start feelin some type of way about that - the shooting, not the fucking looting.
day 74 at almost 2am: still don’t have the words. hope folx are safe out there protesting, especially because this pandemic is still taking lives. so peoples health and safety are at risk in so many ways right now. that’s how fucked up things currently are. bfeiojsbsiwnslqnqxbwo
day 75: psa that instagram story chains that say “black lives matter. tag 10 people” do absolutely nothing. stop with this passive and performative support and engagement. don’t post just to post. just be more intentional and critical about how you’re showing up.
days 76 and 77: “we need an apocalypse in order to have a revolution.” how much more apocalyptic do things need to get 😞
day 78: spent #blackouttuesday making these talking points graphics for folx who might be met with counterproductive questions when engaging in conversation about the fight for justice for Black lives~

sun katara
moon iroh
rising toph

jus wanted to share a moment of joy today.
day 80: i have so much rage in me as more and more videos surface of police horrendously brutalizing innocent people and showing absolute zero regard for civilians. when i say i fucking hate the police to its very core, i mean FUCK THEM and burn it all down
day 81: happy 27th birthday to Breonna Taylor 💕💕💕 ways y’all can take action today to demand justice for her - 
day 82 & 83: really needed some space this weekend to not be glued to my phone. somehow ended up dealing with family drama!! idk how my parents expect me to WANT to move home. it’s exhausting. distance is healthier for our relationship. also did an online escape room, it was fun!
day 84 & 85: finally finished avatar!!!!! best animated series of ALL time. don’t @ me lol sad it’s over but wow such a well written show, great plot, incredible character development, so many critical themes! now i feel even more upset that the live action movie was white washed

day 87 and 88: remembered that in january, my goal was to be off my cane by june. i have been off of it for months now and didn’t even realize it since i’ve been sheltering in place. always got work to do so my hip doesn’t stiffen up. wild how 1.5 years ago i couldn’t even sit up

day 94: v tired of asians organizing against ACA-5 & spreading misinformation about how affirmative action really works and the worse part is that some ppl actually buy into this harmful rhetoric! if y’all asians believe Black lives matter, then that also means supporting ACA-5!!
day 95: happy juneteenth! listen to Beyoncé’s Black Parade.
day 96 & 97: spent the weekend watching watchmen. such a good show!!! will have to read up on some think pieces about it later. this week will be my last week in la. excited to go back to my own space and make my own food and also hoping my parents will be ok on their own! 😩

day 105: ☺️
day 106: ucsd finally approved an asian am studies minor!!!! 6 years after my friends & i wrote an open letter to ucsd demanding for resources, services, programs, & institutional support for asian am students. it's wild to see how much has come out of that letter over the years
day 107: happy 1 yr anniversary of living in my apartment! and being possibly the worse 'property manager' ever lol feels like i am outgrowing this space tho, mostly bc my sister moved in with me in september but i can't give up $1000 rent, so we are getting comfy here!

day 112: why do things in 2020 jus keep getting worse 🥴🥴🥴 i’ve been feeling highly unmotivated to do anything BUT cook, watch tv, and draw on procreate. i wonder if this is jus a phase for me. will i also get bored of this the same way i did with animal crossing?? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️
day 113: went to campus today to figure out social distancing measures for the mcc and i can’t believe that we will only be able to allow like 7 ppl in there when it’s typically had like 20-30 students at a time 😰 dr called me to schedule appt to follow up on my results ahhh 🤞🏼

day 126: spoiled with good weather in the central coast. it literally doesn’t even feel like summer bc it hasn’t been super hot here yet and even if it is, i wouldn’t know if i don’t leave my apt bc it’s really cool in here lol i’ve been really missing summer in chicago tho 😞
day 127: first productive work day in a while 🥴 i have requested friday off tho and gonna spend some time outdoors in nature. perks of not living in the city i guess.. don’t really gotta worry about crowds of ppl lol. also trivia is not fun when the questions are eurocentric 🥴
